I knew a good bit about the famous hacker, geohot.  He has a major league talent as a hacker.  He would be what we call a “l33t”.  For my older readers, unfamiliar with l33tsp34k, that is hacker-geek for “elite”.  This 26-year old’s most recent accomplishment is, according to Bloomberg and other sources, an autonomous car!

In the past, he has also:

  • been credited for the first to hack the iPhone, way back when he was still in high school
  • hack the Play Station and get sued by Sony
  • and much more

What I didn’t know, until I heard mention of it on a podcast, he also spits rhyhms.

The Roscoe Rap from Tapeheads

A Hillarious Video Roscoe’s Rap from the Movie Tapeheads

While I saw the movie a long time ago, I was reminded of it again a few months past.  Unfortunately, it wasn’t because of the Roscoe’s Rap I am about to share.  Seems that one of the Roscoe’s, yes it is a real restaurant chain, lost a racial discrimination suit and not for the movie, Tapeheads.
