We All Need Heroes... Delonte's a Good Choice

I'm genuinely surprised someone didn't do this sooner. Delonte's smooth freestyling at KFC was just begging for viral imitators, but no one stepped up to pay tribute to the raspberry iced tea and Chipotle laden original until now. I know these kids — who are all of, what?, 12? — lacked the production value, the flow, and perhaps some chemical enhancers that made the original the sensation that it was, but credit is dolled out where credit is due. God bless them for trying. God bless them for watching Delonte spout, "Hot sauce in my baaaaag," and think to themselves, Yes, this man is a hero worthy of our time and energies.
