Does Israeli hip-hop artist BooSkills make shakshouka correctly? I can tell you right now, CK’s answer will be “no frickin’ way, my mother makes the best shakshouka.”

  • OK I can see Darbuka.. but they were stretching it a bit with bakbouka… nice vid tho! Thanks for expanding our hip hop horizons! Will you be joining the bloods or the crips now that you’re in LA? Or are you still weighing offers?

  • I’m open to offers from Crips, Bloods, Sharks, Jets, Montagues, Capulets, ICM, CAA and any other rival gangs out there.
