WILL TV JOHNNY GO OUT LIKE JAKE?
Sure you recognize TV Johnny. He's the Vietnamese jeweler in Sharstown Mall who always looks both excited and terrified around rappers. Damn, are they his friends or are they taking money out the register??
I think Johnny has a Hood Pass though. I recently saw him in the Pourin Up video. Seemed pretty excited.
Black celebs (including Paul Wall) love to push business to non-blacks. Interesting.
