  • Life imitates the artless when bullets fly in a feud between rap stars.

    The Freeman kids are watching a t.v. special on rapper Gangstalicious and his hope for a change from his aggressive ways, when an update on the music news informs them the star has been shot yet again.

    This incident happened during a stage show and was mistaken for part of his new song by the baffled crowd. It so resembled the lyrics to the man's new single that it was almost an hour before anyone knew to call for help.

    The shooting comes on the heels of the artist's longstanding battle with E-Dirt, who claims to come from a grittier background and therefore wants more credibility with the public.

    It remains to be seen whether this chicanery will lead to a truce or to further tomfoolery between the rappers and their fans.

    The writing is just hysterical in this one. I haven't been into all the episodes of this series, but this one is a big step up.
