Trivia / Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer

Go To

  • Breakup Breakout: Mr B (under his real name of Jim Burke) is the rapper for One-Hit Wonder Britpop band Collapsed Lung who had one huge hit with "Eat My Goal" before going on hiatus for several years. Mr B carved out a niche in the nascent Chap-Hop genre to considerable success while the band was on hold. Recently the band reformed for performances in The New '10s. It's pretty jarring for fans who know Burke under his Mr B persona to see him wearing a tracksuit and rapping in a working class accent about football, especially as he has to keep his dapper moustache intact for performances under his main Mr B persona and wears the same glasses.

How well does it match the trope?
