One of those peculiar internet-era phenoms guaranteed to make the youths go wild and oldsters scratch their heads, Krispy Kreme—aka oddball twentysomething Tyler Cassidy—went viral in 2012 with “The Baddest,” a lo-fi video that paid cringe-y homage to gangsta-rap posturing. Since changing his stage name to Froggy Fresh, Cassidy has released three albums of quasi-absurdist hip hop, with common topics including sports, video games and Halloween. The living meme hits Live Wire with lil’ buddy Money Maker Mike in tow. A $50 package that includes a pre-show meet and greet is available, and party-rap crew DIP returns from a hiatus to open Friday’s show, because there’s no such thing as too much fun.
