Dec 26th, 2019 by Crime In Music
He can sing, dance and act, he's a triple threat. Born in Dorchester, Massachusetts USA to a delivery driver Dad and a bank clerk/ nurses aide Mom. The youngest of 9 children, with siblings who are also in show business as singers and actors. At a young age, he ran with a rough crowd. Drugs, gangs and violence were a common theme, he developed a cocaine addiction by age 13. His older brother Donnie, tries to get him off the streets and away from his thieving ways; assaulting people and boosting cars, but he ends up in jail.
After serving his time for assaulting a couple people, he gets a job as a brick layer, but again his brother Donnie tries to help him out. Donnie sets him up with some singers, dancers and rappers known as the Funky Bunch. After making a splash in the music world, he does a series of underwear ads for Calvin Klein as a young model who can't keep his pants up. He enters the film world with the help of Danny DeVito and Leonardo DiCaprio. While still big in Germany with his music group One Love, he doesn't completely give up on music yet, but his movie roles were getting bigger and bigger (insert Boogie Nights joke here).
Ben and I discuss the recent advancements in our podcast production, the violent chicken sandwich wars of the USA and how porn sets the trends in media technologies past, present and future.We dive deep into that one time Ben tried to sweet talk some Canadian cops in Windsor, Ontario Canada for a drunk guy he didn't know or like. The studio gets invaded by some dogs, we talk about the Irish and hear our mid-break song sent in by listener Sola. Listen to the Myth of Marky Mark, it's Mark Wahlberg!
