It's that time of the year when all the city's biggest bros train for one of the most important events: Mr Marina.

At first glance, it sounds like just a regular Saturday night in the Marina -- a bunch of douchebags with really nice apartments -- but don't quit reading just yet. These seemingly vacuous and entitled guys are actually pretty damn generous. They're putting themselves out there strictly to raise cash for cancer (okay, and have a little fun while they're at it).

Lucky for us and now you, SF Weekly received a sneak peek video from one aspiring Mr. Marina, Ismail Simpson, who claims in this lyrical breakdown that "the Marina has 99 problems, but Ish ain't one."

Now watch Ish:

In any event, Ish will join the other contestants on March 20 where a panel of three judges will examine and evaluate these fine fellows, scoring them in three categories: swimsuit, talent, and "Marina wear" Q&A. The winner will get showered with attention and other honors that have not yet been determined.

Here's what last year's Mr. Marina, won:

So there you have it: a good reason to go party in the Marina for a change. Get your ticket now.
