Rapper Kamaflaj Extinguishes Fire, Hailed as a Hero

kamaflaj.jpgRapper Kamaflaj, a Philadelphia native, is being hailed as a hero after he broke through a neighbor’s door and extinguished a fire in their apartment. According to the York Dispatch the underground rapper was inside his second floor apartment with his girlfriend and two children when he smelled smoke. When the smell started to get worse and the smoke detector ringing, Kamaflaj ran down to the first floor apartment, but nobody was home so he kicked the door in and tried to locate the fire. Once inside he found a pile of clothing burning on the bathroom floor. “It was glowing, the whole bathroom was glowing. I found a Kool-Aid pitcher and filled it up in the tub,” he said. “I had to [act fast.] There was no time to waste, with my kids [inside.]” Because of his quick thinking, nobody was seriously injured, although his girlfriend and residents from the third floor were treated on the scene for smoke inhalation. York City Assistant Fire Chief Richard Saylo told the Dispatch that the fire was mostly extinguished when they arrived on the scene and credited the rapper with saving the building. “We would have had a major fire,” Saylor said. “He saved a lot of damage. [Neighbors] ought to be thankful for him.” According to the web site for Sowa Entertainment, Kamaflaj’s record label, he has been rapping since the late 1980’s and has opened up for notable acts such as the Notorious B.I.G., Wu-Tang Clan and Doug E. Fresh.

    Yo, I aint tryna down what the brotha did cuz it was some positive shit …

    BUT ..

    This cat HAD to put that fire out. The fire was on the first floor and he lives on the second. Fire goes up .. duh ..
    He was preventing his own shit from fuckin’ up.

    Being a “hero” is when you do something you don’t hafta .. like driving down a street and seeing a fire in a building and actually stopping to put it out instead of keep driving cuz “it ain’t your problem”.

    Putting out a fire on the first floor when you live on the second is common sense … but that’s just my effin’ opinion …

  • Dipset

    I guess that’s why they call him KAMAFLAJ. Nobody could see him… lol…

    My Effin Opinion, no disrespect intended homie , but you are either young or silly or both. Let’s say for a moment that Kamaflaj’s actions were indeed selfish, that he was only concerned about his own family, at the very least his actions make him a hero to his family , and that is at the least. Homeboy kicked down the front door of somebody’s crib , went through, searched for the origin of the flames and then extinguished the fire. And you know there had to be SOMEBODY else in that building that smelled the smoke and didn’t do nothin’. Kamaflaj is a hero, give credit , where credit is due homie.

    Best Gimmick Ever (for this week)

    Next week, another underground rapper claims to have broken up an American Al-Keeda terrorist cell by slapping the shit out of suspected terrorist and corner store owner – Sammie Mohamood Shiiteonbreath for putting mayo on his cold cut sandwitch.

    Dej Jam recognizes his talent and signs him immediately.
