IN THA PLACE TO BE, U.S.A.- As promised in thousands of brags and boasts since the late 1970s, hip-hop MCs and DJs, rappers and breakers, dancing fly girls and b-boys stopped all hip-hop-related activities due to the break of dawn, which came early this morning, at 6:04 a.m.
Meteorologists claim the dawn's broken arrival is a daily occurrence, but hip-hop adherents nonetheless were surprised by the event.
"On and on 'til the break of dawn, right?" said old-school enthusiast Ernesto McGuire, aka "Baby Kid," a 44-year-old assistant manager at Lady Footlocker in the Old Mall across town. "Well, we kept it on and on until then. Then, you know, dawn, you know what I'm sayin', it just broke, yo. I mean, that shit broke like the Ten Commandments all up in this piece."
Baby Kid said no one in hip-hop has ever gone on and on after the break of dawn, and probably never will.
"If we couldn't go on and on no more after that break of dawn, ain't nobody gonna ever be able to do that, yo. What are you, crazy wack stupid? Past the break of dawn?' Sheeit, booooiiiiieeeee."
Scientists and other global observers say that indeed humans could go on and on well past several broken dawns, but that sleep deprivation, dulled senses, paranoia, aggressive behavior and other psychotic episodes are likely to occur.
