Mike Loooweerry. My name is Miike Looowery.

I think one of the qualifications for an ESM Icon is if Lil’ Wayne compares himself to you in his songs:

But I would like for u to pay me by the hOUr
And I’d rather be pushin flowers
Then to be in the pen sharin showers
Tony told us this world was ours
And the bible told us every girl was sour
Don’t play in her garden and don’t smell her flower
Call me Mr. Carter or Mr. Lawn Mower
Boy I got so many bitches like I’m Mike Lowry
(From A Milli by Lil’ Wayne)

If you haven’t seen the movies Bad Boys  and Bad Boys II, Mike Lowery is one of the main characters played by Will Smith. 

A rich kid turned narcotics police officer, Mike Lowery was well dressed (well, for his time at least), badass, got the hottest girls and drove the best exotics.  Too bad he couldn’t be himself throughout half of the first movie as part of the plot.

One of my favorite scenes from the movie Bad Boys is at the beginning when Mike Lowery and his partner, Marcus Burnett are driving around in a Porsche:

Marcus Burnett: Hey man where-where-where’s your cup holder?
Mike Lowrey: I don’t have one.
Marcus Burnett: What the f- w’you mean you don’t have one? Eighty thousand dollars for this car and you ain’t got no damn cup holder?
Mike Lowrey: It’s $105,000 and this happens to be one of the fastest production cars on the planet. Zero to sixty in four seconds, sweetie. It’s a limited edition.
Marcus Burnett: You damn right it’s limited. No cup holder, no back seat. Just a shiny dick with two chairs in it. I guess we the balls just draggin’ the fuck along.
