Hobo Johnson is a young man born in a 94 Toyota Corolla who entered the outside world this fall. Watch him find his way back to his Corolla.

The star of this homespun video is rapper Frank Lopes, 22, better known in music circles as Hobo Johnson. Through his series of lovably low-budget clips titled “Hobo Johnson – Live From Oak Park,” he’s emerged as one of the hottest and perhaps most unlikely stars of local hip-hop.

A hardened street soldier of hip-hop Hobo Johnson is not. But the rapper – whose 1994 Toyota Corolla once doubled as his home, thus the name “Hobo Johnson” – is finding success just by being true to his slightly neurotic self.

Don’t miss him live here at Village Underground this August.
