Steve Porter Samples Canadian Crack Mayor
Acclaimed underground house DJ Steve Porter has created a bootleg track and video based around the crack cocaine confessions of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.
Six months previously, Ford said ‘I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict”, when challenged about media reports of a video purporting to show him smoking rocks from a crack pipe, though changed his tune this week after cops revealed they’d finally taken possession of the clip.
“Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” he confessed.
“There have been times when I’ve been in a drunken stupor,” he added, “I made mistakes in the past and all I can do is apologise.”
Going on claim he hadn’t been lying earlier (‘I wasn’t lying. You didn’t ask the correct questions’, he also insisted he has no plans to step down.
The shameless Canadian crack addict was previously recognized in song by Peaches and Betti Forde who released a track in May called ‘Bored of Rob Ford’ just as the first allegations of his crack habit emerged. Chatting to Skrufff at the time, Betti Forde (no relation) said she’d been inspired to write the track ‘because Ford was such a unrepentant homophobe’.
“I’ve actually been stewing on this track for a year now. I was trying to make it last year with Lady Miss Kier (Dee-lite) and an NYC-based producer in order to perform it with her last year at Toronto Pride 2012,” said Betti.
“Kier was super into it but it was too difficult to organize with her summer tour schedule. I heard that my buddy Peaches was coming to town for the LGBTQ film festival and I thought, “gee, wouldn’t it be great to get Peaches on the track? I bet she is also quite bored of Rob Ford”.
