Last week Clinton Sandifer, aka tongue-in-cheek Chicago rapper ShowYouSuck, released a 16-track mix tape called One Man Pizza Party 2: Mo Slices, Mo Problems, which includes collaborations with Grade A-plus, Flosstradamus, and Netherfriends. It's the follow-up to One Man Pizza Party, which dropped on April 20—not only a date beloved of weed aficionados but also Sandifer's 26th birthday (or so he says). He plans to close out the series with a remix collection titled Rest in Pizza.

The title of the mix reflects Sandifer's ebullient style as well as his sense of humor, and even its backstory is funny. At Wicker Park nightclub Debonair he ran into a woman he'd apparently forgotten he'd met. To jog his memory, she described a phone conversation she'd had with him and the amazing pickup line he'd used in it: "You told me you were a one-man pizza party."

Who knows if Sandifer actually said that, but either way he loved the idea. "There's nothing that speaks to youth and energy like pizza and partying," he says. One Man Pizza Party has gotten nods from outlets like trendy label-slash-clothing company Mishka and Chicago-based hip-hop site Ruby Hornet, which is also hosting One Man Pizza Party 2. And the new mix won't exist only on the Internet: Sandifer will give away CD copies of OMPP 2 at his release show at Reggie's Rock Club on Fri 1/13.
