"Don't go chasing water fails..."
The identity of this Clearwater, Florida artist isn't known, which makes sense. If he is a rapper—which many Internet posts are suggesting—I could see why he'd prefer to remain anonymous. Losing a battle with a stiff breeze and falling over a ledge while trying to retrieve a 12-dollar hat doesn't exactly scream "street cred." Or coordination. Normally, you'd suspect that this was a staged fall to generate publicity. However, the fact that the YouTube description doesn't reveal his identity, only that he cut his hands and knees on an oyster bed, probably means the artist we'll call Breezy E would prefer to lay low for a while. At least until his wounds heal and the wind dies down.
