Terrane-Jay-Z-Kanye-Subway

Happy Holidays, everyone! Hee Hee! I complain about the internets and how it’s taken over our lives, but sometimes all that immediacy and proximity makes for HILARITY.
Like the viral video of that crazy wacky guy rapping at the top of his lungs to Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “N—as in Paris” on a crowded New York City subway car….
Not only did we all get to see it thanks to youtube, but Kanye even cosigned the clip by tweeting it!

But who was that mystery fan, in his purple jacket and matching purple bag, going H.A.M. on the train?

We found him! Meet our new pal Terrane Hicks!

MissInfo: So what about “N—as in Paris” got you so…so…excited on the subway?
Terrane: EVERYTHING!!!!!

MissInfo: Um, no offense, but were you drunk or high?
Terrane: No, actually I was totally sober. I am like this all the time. I’m just a hype person.

My full chat with Terrane, Mr. “N—as on the Subway”…
After the jump…

MissInfo: Ah ha! The man of the hour….what’s it like to be a viral sensation?
Terrane: Well, everyone I know keeps calling me and hysterically laughing. I love it. Love the excitement and I’m actually going to try to take this somewhere!

MissInfo: Tell us about who you are…
Terrane: I was born and raised in Harlem, recently moved to Brooklyn. I’m a martial artist and I own a personal training company called Skye Fitness (skyefitness.com).

MissInfo: So…walk me through your epic rap debut, lol.
Terrane: I was on the #4 train going to Wall Street, I think.

MissInfo: But what about listening to “N—as in Paris” was making you so…so…excited on the subway?
Terrane: EVERYTHING!!!!!

MissInfo: Um, no offense, but were you drunk or high?
Terrane: No, actually I was totally sober. I am like this all the time. I’m just a hype person.

MissInfo: Do you normally rap out-loud like that? Were you at all worried that you might be disturbing the other passengers on the subway?
Terrane: No, I don’t normally rap out loud but that’s one of those songs that gets you hype! I really didn’t care what the other riders thought. That’s that song!!! And yes, I was definitely trying to entertain my fellow commuters.

MissInfo: You mentioned that you want to make the most of this spotlight….what do you hope will happen?
Terrane: I will definitely use this fame to promote my company Skye Fitness and my Skye brand. Also I’m going to kick my acting career off.

MissInfo: Well, you’ve already got that lack of inhibitions thing down. And a cosign from Kanye!
Terrane: I want to tell Kanye that he’s my idol and that it’s his fault that I went “CRAY” on the train. Thanks Kanye!!

And thank you, Terrane ; )
If anything, You could totally play the lead role in the bio-pic of comedian JB Smoove (aka Leon from Curb Your Enthusiasm), if that project were to ever happen.
