The Wire Watch—Part One in an Ongoing Series

Well, thankfully not really an ongoing series, but after HKM’s post on the sudden, belated ubiquity of The Wire as media reference point I noticed this crammed-in doozy from The Guardian review of the US equiv of Goldie Lookin’ Chain:

Rappers Shunda K and Jwl B, from Tampa, Florida, could have been a couple of characters written for The Wire: they're portly, punky, God-fearing lesbians, prone to stripping down to the waist on stage.

I must’ve missed that episode.
