Ed Lover, best known for his time as the co-host of “Yo! MTV Raps” in the late 80's and early 90's, has held his share of the celebrity spotlight. If he went out to the clubs in New York City, there’s a chance the Queens-born hip-hop host might have gotten complimentary gifts just for showing up.
Then there’s Mike Tyson, who in the late 80's was a god among men as the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. With that kind of gusto, Tyson lived life with a capital L-I-F-E, doing lavish spending while feeling what I’m pretty sure was a sense of invincibility and being above the law.
One night out in NYC, Lover bumped into Tyson and then began a hilarious story that spanned 15 years. In the end, Lover was left shocked and wondering what could have been.
Watch and listen to Lover explain it in detail on Adult Swim’s FishCenter in the clip below.
