"If you couldn’t get Cheba, you got Love Bug Starski (RIP). Again, this is actual facts. If you got all three, the number of tickets would skyrocket and you could also pay the bar guarantee. They were the rap STARS and the biggest money makers and draws."

It was always just a matter of when, probably when everyone was distracted by something else. Did Tucker's propaganda tour provide that distraction? It's hard to say, but it's quite possible. It may have been all part of the plan. It's unlikely it was just a coincidence.
