Just days after the giant slide at Belle Isle was shut down, Detroit rapper Gmac Cash has created a rap song commemorating the whole debacle.
That sure as hell didn't take long, did it? And if you take issue with the use of a mild swear word in that last sentence, wait 'til you hear the song.
A Little Background
After reopening for just a brief time, the infamous Giant Slide was shuttered on Friday (8/19) after riders were seen reaching dangerous speeds. Folks posted videos to social media sites showing riders becoming airborne as they rode down the slide and then crashing back down on the hard surface.
It looked like a lot of fun, but it was deemed dangerous.
Detroit Rapper Gmac Cash Penned a Song
The popular Detroit rapper Gmac Cash (Remember Big Gretch?) tells Detroit's WJBK-TV that he got over 200 direct messages from fans prompting him to write a song about the newly-reopened slide.
"It's like jumping off a roof. Man, you gonna lose a tooth," the rapper sings. "Kids be gettin' on my nerves so I sent them to the Giant Slide."
Yeah, I'll be honest, the song really sucks. Sucks hard. Disclaimer: I hate all rap, and I fully expected to hate this before I even clicked play on the YouTube video, below. I wasn't disappointed.
Slide Reopens After Some Modifications
Officials with the DNR who run the park's attraction reopened the slide on Sunday (8/21) after making some modifications and issuing a video to show how to ride the slide properly. That's included in the second video below.

For Sale: Historic Alpena Post Office Transformed Into Elegant $3M Residence
Potential and location, what more do you need? Someone saw a bit of both when they purchased this historic Alpena Federal Building that was once a Post Office. The inside comes as a surprise as you walk through the doors of the building constructed in 1910 with an entire elegant residence. Although there are 15,000 square feet of space, there is only 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom for accommodations. The building has an added plus with 165' of frontage on the south bank of the Thunder Bay River.
When it comes to potential the possibilities are endless. The property is zoned for commercial use and the new owner could create a venue for weddings and parties, bed & breakfast, or additional lofts for living. It is currently listed for $3M, and the building is offered below appraisal and options for thousands of dollars in restoration grants. Take a look inside!
