As 2009 begins, many are re-capping the notable events of ‘08, but no one does it better than the man who has made it a tradition since 2002 – that’s right, the one and only Skillz is back to give his Rap Up ‘08; covering everything that happened from the Giants’ Upset of the Century in Super Bowl XLII to this past December when lame duck President Bush went to Iraq and almost got “a-shoe-sinated.” However, the biggest event of the year according to Skillz (and so many others) was by far Barack Obama’s election as our new President, and the VA MC goes on to give his opinion how his people can change their lives for the better (after all, nobody can change everything all by himself). Still, the message remains the same; here’s to the memories 2008 brought, and let’s make 2009 another year to remember!
