Rap veteran the Popper opened his heart and his Rolodex for Kansas City when he wrote "For the MO," the title track of an album that he released over the summer. "For the MO" featured verses by two other wordsmiths with mass appeal: Tech N9ne and Ron Ron. The reaction? The city loved the Popper's anthem right back, earning him the rarest of honors: airtime on local radio stations (KPRS 103.3, specifically) during the summer's most blistering days. Popper shot a video for the song at his former high school, Lincoln Preparatory Academy, casting himself as a security guard, Tech as the principal and Ron Ron as substitute teacher Mr. Know-It-All. He even nabbed Bobb'e J. Thompson, the KC-born actor from the cast of Tyler Perry's House of Payne, to play a mischievous student. KCTV Channel 5 reporter Lisa Benson smelled controversy. Should a Kansas City, Missouri, school building be the backdrop for a song full of profanity and graphic imagery? She was answered not with outcry but with a hearty hell yeah. Face it: The song is for the MO, and the MO abides.
