MC Paul Barman
On one hand, New Jersey's MC Paul Barman has got to have the blandest name in hip-hop, bereft as it is of flash and imagination. Then again, it could also be seen as the boldest; it takes a really confident cat to use the name that's on his birth certificate in this industry of cloaks and veils. Brave or not, most agree that Barman is the geekiest rapper since fellow curly-haired-white-boy Jesse "Shake It (Like a White Girl)" Jaymes. That hasn't stopped Barman from winning over lots of fans and plenty of respect from his peers with his spazzed-out, relentlessly juvenile flow.
