The guy just quit acting to become a rock star ... and if this freestyle disaster is any clue as to how his music career will go, let's just say it's DOA.

....and yess he keeps price tag cause generally he doesn't give a **** what people think about him and just feel ok with himself? That would be shock for all of you huh?

This isn't even funny! Clearly this man is high as a kite on SOMETHING? he looks horrible! I think he just wanted to be out of the spotlight so he could stay high and everybody would think "oh he's just trying to be funny" Wow he looks like he's high off pills or something!

This video made me sad!!! WTF is wrong with him....he may have guts, but hell....he looks, and is acting pathetic. He has talent in ACTING!...He moves people when he acts!!! This is just plain wrong, hope it's a joke.
I also thought he was a recovering alcoholic???!!!...so, is he drinking??

This is really tragic. He sounds like that rapper who sings that "damn you look good wont you back that ass up" haha ...He quit acting which he was really good at to make a complete fool of himself on stage. Please tell me this is some early April fools joke because this is insane.

Has it occured to ANYBODY that he is SUCKING ON PURPOSE AS A MUSICIAN so that he can "get better" as he progresses? Its a distinct possibility. OR he could be the biggest self-saboteur in the history of entertainment. They're both equally plausible! AND THATS WHAT MAKES THIS RIDE SO INTERESTING! HE IS WALKING THE RAZOR'S EDGE OF MANUFACTURED REALITY! AT worst its interesting, at best its really the best acting job of this century thus far.

This dude sucks    

This guy is HORRIBLE! And to the people saying rap takes no talent. Shut the hell up. Lets see ANY of you make a hip hop song thats good. Also all the rap all your people ever heard is probably like 50 cent and lil wayne and all the crap they play on tv. There is A LOT of good quality hip hop out there. You just don't see it on tv.
