The Over-the-Hill Gang

The Casanova Freestyle Reunion, this Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the James L. Knight Center, is like a Just for Men commercial with hip-hoppers. Instead of Emmitt Smith and his weird beard sitting in a rocking chair, it’s going to be the Sugar Hill Gang poppin’ fish oil capsules and playing canasta with Big Daddy Kane. Also on the card are old-schoolers Debbie Deb, Tavares, and Brenda K. Starr, hopping around on their fake hips and hopped up on Lipitor and insulin. Plus Vanilla Ice! Yes, Vanilla Ice will be there in the flesh and laying it down, getting all Robert Van Winkle on everyone’s wrinkled asses. It’s gonna be the bee’s knees, jackmove.

But the hip-hop geezers aren’t there just to make you laugh (like when Grandpa busts a move at the family reunion); part of the proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research. (And to Vanilla Ice’s Top Ramen fund?) Muthaf**kas ain’t ready.
