I love "The Wire". It is quite possibly my favorite television show of all time. I have referenced many of the characters at opportune times during my ravings and rants over the last few months, but this cat Jesse H. from The Smoking Section compiled one of the best comparitive lists of rappers vs. characters from the wire I have ever seen.

Click that hotlink. The shit is real.
I especially like the Charles Hamilton/Dukie, Jay-Z/Stringer Bell, and the Scarface/Prop Joe comparisons. Those are razor sharp.
Its a great read, WITH PICTURES, so you cave-dwellers will be entertained.
