NYC food and beverage bigwig Gregory Abbott and his wife, Marcia, allegedly paid $125,000 to boost their daughter’s SAT and ACT scores — as part of the college admissions scandal. Perhaps next they could shell out dough to inflate the streaming numbers for their rapper son, Malcolm.
Or even better, maybe they could pay some folks back for going through the torture of actually listening to Billa, which is Malcolm’s rap handle.
That’s certainly the only way we could imagine his 2018 EP racking up any decent amount of spins. When The Post caught up with blunt-puffing Billa outside the Abbott family home overlooking the Metropolitan Museum of Art, he told us, “Check out my CD, ‘Cheese & Crackers.’ ”
So, for better or worse, we did.
On the opening track, “Good Cracker,” Billa spits about ”growing up f—-d-up on Fifth Avenue” and hanging “outside the prep school” over a plodding beat to match his flow. Call it white-privilege rap.
Later, on “Jack Boy,” he asks “Where the Jews at?” in one of the most un-gangsta shout-outs ever. On the same track, Billa brags about “gettin’ mad cash every night.” No doubt from his parents.
Another song, “If I Lost My Money,” makes you think about just how much Billa would be struggling if he was “dead broke” and had to actually earn some real money in the rap game.
But hey, at least this five-track EP lives up to its title: There’s plenty of cheese being served up here. Don’t say we didn’t warn you: Billa has a new project, “Harvey,” dropping Friday, March 15. And, yes, you are reading that correctly — @infamousbill has more than 70,000 Instagram followers.
