After hearing all the throwback stories about how different rappers got their first mixtape off the ground, this story is quite interesting yet bazaar  at the same time. Yesterday A Brooklyn rapper known as C.I. Joe was arrested in Times Square  after he climbed atop a 25-foot light pole and began rapping.

According to reports, the rapper had just been thrown out of MTV’s nearby headquarters, while trying to promote his latest mixed CD. C.I. Joe climbed on top of the pole, threw copies of his demo CD to the crowd and rapped to curious onlookers, who thought that incident was a staged stunt.

While charges agaisnt the rapper are still pending,  After police were finally able to get him down , he was  sent to Bellevue Mental Hospital to undergo  psychiatric evaluation.
