Anyway, as you can see in the above clip, Bosh is still pretty plugged into the local scene--mostly thanks to his younger friends in the area, who can't believe he hasn't heard all the songs that are being jammed in the clubs nowadays. "I always have to play catch-up," Bosh tells MTV.

Actually, in this instance, the eye-rolling should be directed at MTV.

Somewhere, Lil Wil's gotta be pissed.
