Prince, reduced to a symbol, invents strategies to avoid a deficit (pt 3)

Prince - My name is Prince (12" club mix)

Prince Prince Princetty Prince U Better Be Ready When The Prince Prince Prince....

Prince's income supplementation strategy with the most success was deceptively simple: counterfeited Sam's Club membership cards. Because everybody, especially celebrities, wants those Sam's Club savings but nobody wants to belong or be into the Sam's Club group.

Prince - The Ball
Prophet Posse - Triple Six Club House

And this is the story of how Prince entered the incredibly remunerative operation of Sam's club card forgery
When he was first starting his counterfeiting operation, he needed a beta-tester. Now don't get the wrong idea. Prince would never ordinarily need to proofread with a beta-tester, but the thing is he spilled some water on his plusplusplus computer.

And we all now water does not get a computer putin, that is unless the water is soapy in a bucket with some nails submerged into the bucket.

Prince - Something in the water (does not compute)

So he needed a beta-tester, and he chose Burt Young, whom you will remember as "Paulie" or "Curly", a choice he made for reasons that I don't really wanna bore you with (unless you are Just Blaze and you are in the studio, and you narrate works of MySpace criticism genius on your MySpace page when you're bored, and so in which case I really do wanna bore you in the studio (and if you're Catchdub, from whom I found out about Just Blaze's MySpace antics, then I realreally don't wanna bore you (dude, stop reading my blog, and go do reconnaissance on my heroes' MySpace pages)), hopefully Prince's flawless reasoning will start to be visible to you as you read the story, but suffice to say he chose Burt Young.

I choose you - Willie Hutch
Choose U - Project Pat

(plus go to Smoking Section because Retro put you upon the rest of this Willie Hutch soundtrack

And needless to say in fact completely sufficient to
not say, Prince's forgeries were entirely impeccable with respect to barcoding.
