Baltimore City Lead Poisoning Kids Prey

Baltimore City lead poisoning kids have been preyed upon by a Chevy Chase company called Access Funding, according to a front page story in the Washington Post. It is a thoroughly scathing article by Terrence McCoy that suggests that Access Funding has taken advantage of poor black Baltimore city kids who were victims of lead poisoning that they were exposed to when growing up.  As a result of the lead exposure and the legal action that followed, many of the victims entered into structured settlements designed to provide long term financial security.  Some were paid as little as 35 cents on the dollar after being induced to sell, and courts approved it, according to the Washington Post.

Here’s what Master Funky Chicken have to say ’bout that:

 

Baltimore city kids ate fuckin’ lead

Makes you dead in the head

They say Access went after their “bread”

McCoy smacked em’ upside the head

 

Mac Daddy Washington Post

McCoy stuck his head in the most

On it comes Brian E. Frosh

With cash now dealers he’s ready to mosh.

And on come the Maryland legislators

Out to slay the cash now alligators

 

Poor Baltimore structured settlement annuitants

Those Lump Sum dealers owe some penitence

They tried to make hay with Freddie Gray

Then Freddie Gray died that day.

And Mary Alice Rose and her IPA

Charles E Smith

What da fuck did he do anyway?

 

Smith being sued

For an IPA said to be pooed

Mild retardation

Can you understand the situation?

Shit like this going on across the nation

Leaving these people to eat “Ken-L-Ration”?

 

From steady payments to  eatin’ dog food

Sorry honey I’m not in the mood

Get these predatory mo fos out of my ‘hood

Don’t let me be misunderstood

 

Time for Frosh to put on the kabosh

So a brother can afford some nosh

In steps Elijah Cummings

Time for him to do something stunning

Congressional investigation

Time to change the situation

I love funky music, lyrical poetry and the "rhyme sublime". A rapper with an interest in structured settlements. I read about too many brothers and sisters getting hosed by advertisers buying structured settlements. Having to sell your structured settlement sucks, but many people don't have the access to the information they need and making bad decisions, so I decided to rap home the message.
