If this is real, it's ridiculous

So Blender has this story up about this supposed savior of hip-hop, who is choosing to stay in the shadows and avoid any kind of career or publicity. I have to say, the whole thing is pretty suspect. First of all, the rapper's real name is Clifton Toney. Flip that around and you get Toney (sic) Clifton, Andy Kaufman's famous alter ego.

The rapper goes by the name Swayze (swayze, like ghost? clifton toney like pretty toney?), none of his supposed tracks can be found online, and no relevant links pop up in repeated google searches. It's surely a hoax, but this is a fun story. Check it out at the Blender website.

There's also some discussion of the story here.
