(And not to worry: Several days and $1,000 worth of vet services later, he's all good.)
Blake Boston, aka "Scumbag Steve," is a case study in embracing unexpected Internet fame. Boston has managed to parlay his notoriety as a meme into a popular Tumblr, and now he's resurrecting his long-dormant hip-hop ambitions with a track about (what else?) Scumbag Steve.
His future plans include releasing a new track every Thursday on his just-launched website, ScumbagThursdays.
Knowing Scumbag Steve, though, he probably won't drop a new song until the 1st of the month (which is also when he plans to hit you back for the 20 bucks you loaned him).
Steve fans can also catch the 'bag himself at this weekend's ROFLCon at MIT.
