Young MC offers Jay Cutler a chance to Bust a Move

If Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has any interest in redeeming himself for his mumbling, stumbling version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” then Young MC is eager to give him a chance.

While you wrap your head around that for a minute, I’ll save you the Goggling and tell you that yes, in fact, Young MC is still a thing.

Best known for his late-80s single “Bust a Move,” Young MC will be appearing at a music festival in nearby Kankakee next weekend. He’s co-headlining with tone Loc (“Wild Thing”), but he wants to give Cutler a shot to share the stage, according to Dave Wischnowsky of CBS Chicago.

“Thinking Bears Jay Cutler and I could laydown a better “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” than at Wrigley #jaygetsadoover,” Young MC tweeted this week from the @officialyoungmc account.

Now local politicians are involved, and want to try to make it happen.

See, Cutler will be kind of busy in Bears training camp at Bourbonnais, but Kankakee Mayor Nina Epstein has offered a police escort if they can get Cutler onto the stage.

The idea that Cutler’s interested in doing it is less likely than the possibility he’d do it well, but hey, when you’re trying to promote a concert in Kankakee with C-list has beens, it’s worth a shot.

    We all like Tone Loc. Well, at least I did until Slick Rick came along and forever ruined rap music.

    Perhaps you’ve got things a lil messed up as Slick Rick was around and doing shows with Doug E Fresh back in 84 and 85 and I don’t recall hearing about Tone or Young MC til 87 – 88.

    I’d rather be a has-been then a never was. Their hits will still get play 30 years from now and at every wedding.
