Rapper Hot Karl Not Looking To Be A Household Name

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Most rappers would love to have their name screamed out by fans all over the world, but not Hot Karl.

The 26-year-old white L.A. rapper – who’s done tracks with Kanye West, DJ Quik and Redman – loves rhyming, but says, “I’m not sure I want to be a household name.”

That might be a good thing, because for those not familiar with perverted terms, “Hot Karl” is slang for pooping on someone’s chest.

Karl says he picked the name “to be ironic,” but reveals he might just go by HK in the future because, “At some point you have to stop the piss and fart jokes.”

But the rapper isn’t ready to grow up just yet. In his most recent album, The Great Escape, he says he can’t help but mess around with ’80s icons, giving props to Michael Bivins of Bell Biv Devoe and dissing Madonna.

He also admits his song “Butterface”– as in she’s got a nice body, butterface is nasty – is “not something anyone could ever be proud of.”
