All of the lights in Downtown Miami are on and a rapper daps up a guy in the audience and goes into his verse:
"Another brother got shot dead in the stone, pushin' the dope, stackin' the cheese. Now he dead, on the scene, and thass not really how it 'post ta be. Rest in peace to my homie."
Then the crowd erupts into explosive applause. But they're cheering for the Heat stomping the Bulls, not the dude kickin' the free. The rapper is a local streetlifer outside the Vagabond before Stone Groove Tuesdays open-mic night, and he's got great music.
