Not sure if we should congratulate or shake our heads at Tyshuan Granger, a now former Chicago McDonald’s employee, for what he did. In true “by any means necessary” Grangder took a page out of the hustlers handbook in attempts to get his
struggle rap music heard.
Granger, who is a high school student started swapping out Happy Meal toys with copies of his mixtape, Tales of A Real N*gga. He reportedly replaced the toys with paper slipcases featuring a burnt copy of his disc with his album title written on the front with a sharpie.
One mother who purchased a happy meal from the McDonald’s where Granger worked said:
I bought my son a Happy Meal and inside came a mysterious cd. I, like any other parent, would assume the CD was for children. I played the CD in my car for my son while we drove home and Lord Jesus have mercy on Tysahun, the mixtape was dreadful. Not only was it completely inappropriate, but it was also the weakest set of bars I’ve ever heard.
Now regardless if his music was trash or not is beyond the point. The real issue? If you wanted to get your music in the hands of people, why seed it out to kids in happy meal boxes? As is kid’s who eat happy meals can’t even tie their own shoes, let alone purchase or download a mixtape.
What are your thoughts? Do you consider his act completely dumb or do you respect his hustle? SHARE with your crew and see what they think.
