We interviewed the Dozen’s Players Madd and Dog2020 better known as Maddog 2020 aka MD2020 to learn more about this unique version of the classic Dickens A Christmas Carol. We found them in a quiet cafe in the Bottoms on Rome Avenue away from the hustle and bustle of 125th Street and Obama Avenue.
We: It’s so nice to meet you two colorful characters.
MD2020: It would have been nicer to meet you if you had been Oprah. Our Agent said we was going to be on Oprah!
We: Well she couldn’t make it.
MD2020: That’s all right. You got an Oprah sized check in your pocket?
We: I’m paying for dinner.
MD2020: In this greasy spoon dinner ain’t but five bucks all you can eat. Look a here, this chicken wing still got the feathers on it.
We: (Laughs) So tell our readers why The Bottoms is such a unique Christmas tale.
MD2020: Well it’s got us, the finest yo Mama smack talkin’ dozens players in the country.
We: That’s very unique indeed. I don’t think the original story had any dozens players.
MD2020: But it also got the traditional Scrooge like character and a Bob Crutchet and them dreams. Them dreams are something else. Numbers Runners love them dreams.
We: I understand you two tell a story of almost getting lynched in a place called Mud Turtle Mississippi. Can you elaborate more on that? How does that fit into a Christmas story?
MD2020: It fits into a Black Folks Christmas story very nicely. Your stingy butt readers need to buy a copy.
We: Thank you so much Madd and Dog2020. This concludes our interview.
MD2020: Sure does. My drumstick just jumped off my plate is trying to start a fight with a catfish fillet.
