Probably one of
the most disturbing events to happen in hip-hop not relating to physical violence
is Star's comments to DJ Envy. Star just needs to be grateful Envy has some
self-restraint. I'm sure some satellite radio station will pick up Star and
take off the censors, and I'm sure people will follow, but for the record, you
can't really give points for shock value. All you really have to do to have
shock humor is turn off that little filter in your head, have a few drinks,
and let it rip.
Props to OJ for
selling his white Bronco. Nothing screams funny quite like selling your getaway
car. I'm just surprised he kept it for so long. He probably had it in his garage,
polishing it up everyday and trying to keep AC's impression on the seat still
there. What I want to know is who's going to buy it? Imagine some soccer mom
dropping her kids off.
Delores, why are
you driving that old Bronco. Where's the Beamer?
Oh, I traded it in. Isn't this hot?
Yeah, if you were OJ.
Well, I'm not OJ, but the Bronco is OJ's!
Wow! Are the blood stains still in it?
They're fading a bit, but it's not too bad!
Can my little Timmy go for a ride in it?
Only if he doesn't spill on the blood stains. They're getting hard to see so
I have to figure out how to preserve them.
This will look so nice next to my Pamela Anderson tampon!
Totally. And don't forget your Marilyn Manson toilet paper?
Oh, yes, how could I forget? Isn't that shit mark just exquisite?
I'm just waiting
for an elementary school to name themselves in honor of Orenthal. Orenthal Academy
has a nice ring to it. And I don't think anyone ever has or ever will hustle
the system quite like OJ, so let's just crown OJ the king of hustling and get
all these "hustlers" in the rap game a thesaurus because they need
a new term. Maybe something along the lines of "time-waster." Signing
away your artistic rights on a fucked-up contract and making someone else rich
does not make you a hustler, and neither does selling your mixtape at family
Speaking of family
reunions, I don't think we're having one this year. I guess I'm just going to
have to watch the VHS of my singing cousin the funny shit is I got a cousin
on the other side of the family who can actually sing, but posting his video
on HHG just wouldn't be as entertaining.
said "Fuck New York." I don't really blame him, but it just sounds
bad coming from him. He talked about the DJ's who take money and have their
own artists and how people pay for mixtape slots. When this problem was just
starting, no one was strong enough to stop it, so eventually it grew and became
this. And a big problem is there are just too many New York rappers and they
all have the same story. Almost every mixtape sounds the same, and even when
it's good, it's not good because it's already been said before. And all the
blame shouldn't be placed on the DJ's. Let's just say fuck everyone and start
over. Let's start with Nas putting out his album, then let's give cats like
KRS, Kool G. Rap, and Craig G the respect they deserve and drop their albums,
then drop Joe Budden (he's technically from New York), after that lets get the
Saigon and Papoose records, then Killah Priest and GZA need to drop a record
together, and then a new Jay album, and after that, bring in the Wu to clean
house. Sounds like a plan right?
Wouldn't it be
dope if KRS and 9th Wonder did an album together?
Reports are coming
out that the whole Gravy shooting was done by a member of his own team. I didn't
see the video, obviously, but if that news report is true, Gravy's going to
have a lot of explaining to do, and by a lot I mean he's basically going to
have to save his career. I guess we'll hear from him about it sooner or later.
And then everyone
says hip-hop fans are brainwashed is that true when Papoose is the most
anticipated new artist out? How can you not love Papoose's movement right now?
Even though I think they could be doing some things differently, I think the
fact that songs like "Robbery Song" get so many plays on HipHopGame
proves that good music is still appreciated. What's amazing is that Papoose
has dropped enough mixtapes to have his own stand on Canal Street and he's not
running out of lines (which has definitely happened to some NY rappers who made
their mark, um, their only mark, on the mixtapes). And I still think Papoose
is a huge gamble for a major label, but I'm also thinking his debut album is
going to be a classic.
And you've got
to love Field Mob trying to say they didn't diss New York. Whether they did
or not, it really doesn't matter. That's like a garbage man having beef with
a mailman and no Southerners, don't read into the shit like I'm saying
Southern rap is garbage, a lot of it is but I'm slowly trying to appreciate
it. All I'm saying is it doesn't matter what Field Mob thinks of New York and
what New York thinks of the South. If New York didn't make some of the songs
they made they'd still be doing ok And apparently Field Mob didn't even
diss New York, but if they did, more power to them.
Things are not
looking great for Obie Trice at the moment. His album just got pushed back and
MTV refuses to play his video for "Snitch." Why, all of a sudden,
does MTV care? I think the show about those pricks and their sweet 16 birthday
parties is doing much more damage than Obie's video can ever do.
It's looking like
Dame Dash is putting his focus outside of the rap game right now, and I really
can't blame him for that because the game is so corny right now. Dame just directed
an Australian flick The Proposition and is working on one with Cuba Gooding,
Jr. He's also got Sizzla and State Prop so it's not like he's hurting. As much
as I disagreed with Dame appearing in Cam's video, I am happy to see that Dame
did not completely stop his movement once Jay left him.
That's about it
for now enjoy the new Hip Hop Disciples it may have taken a minute
to do but whatever, it's still better than most of the shit out.
