After The Wire made the phrase “my name is my name” infamous, it got a brand new life when Pusha T made it the title of his new album. Actor Jaime Hector, who portrayed Marlo Stanfield, the Baltimore drug dealer that uttered the phrase on the show, broke down how it came to be.
“If IBM or Apple or any major corporation did not that know their name was being dragged through the mud, they would be pissed off with their employees when they found out, because your name is everything,” Hector told TheUrbanDaily.com. “It holds its weight and that’s what brought the intensity for me to do that scene.”
