is finally out. I actually picked it up from the store instead of downloading
it early, which actually took some restraint, but hey, if Bernard Hopkins can
not eat any ice cream for a few years then I can definitely wait a week for
an album. There are definitely some songs on there I can do without, but overall,
its a good listen. The production is dope, but there are way too many
guest appearances. They definitely went for the money on this one getting Will.i.am
on there instead of Flipmode. Thats the only major problem I have with
The Big Bang. Where is Rah Digga? I know Missys a different type of artist,
but it just seems funny that she would be on the album and Dirty Harriet isnt.
If you read my interview with her, then you know how loyal she is to Busta.
How could she not even have a verse on the album? The features are kind of funny.
Im definitely not mad about Rae and Nas being on the album, but Nas sounds
a little out of place on Get Carried Away. I think it would have
been interesting to hear a Busta and Em collaboration. And where was 50 Cent
or Papoose? I hate to sound like Im complaining about it, but when you
wait this long for an album and have this much hype surrounding it, the expectations
are going to be very high.
Glad to hear Big Ben is ok after that motorcycle accident. Now lets hope
Coach Cowher takes his keys away. How does he not even wear a helmet? I can
understand why hed want to ride a bike, but when youre one the most
valuable player on the Super Bowl-winning team, you might want to think about
one of those big Escalades or something like that. A lot of people are saying
he should have the freedom to do whatever the hell he wants, but when youre
in that position, you cant possible have every freedom you want. You can
have ranch dressing instead of thousand island, but you cant go to Ihop
with Rosie ODonnell. Its just not safe. And just like Jim Rome said
even though its not in his contract to not participate in any yelling
contests, he wont do it, I am not going to be entering any brick hitting
contests even though Dee Jekkyl never told me I shouldnt go Mike Tyson
on my apartment wall.
I think its time for everyone to get off Oprah. I couldnt care less
if she likes rap music or not. Shes done more for disadvantaged people
than any rapper ever has, and shes free to run her show the way she wants
to. If she really treated Ludacris the way he says she did when the cast of
Crash was on the show, then she fucked up there. I didnt see the show,
but I heard Luda talking about it, and if what he says is true, then she definitely
owes him an apology. However, she does not owe anything to Ice Cube. Sure hes
a rags-to-riches story like every other rapper and hes worked
his way to the top and done some great things, but whats going to happen
when someone in the media picks up some old Cube and hears such cutting edge
birth control lines like Then I thought deep about giving up the money/What
I need to do is kick the bitch in the tummy. You dont think Oprahs
going to have some explaining to do on that one? Well, hes actually
a reformed tummy-kicker. He hasnt raised a foot in five years.
So, Ice Cube, um, why did you feel the need to kick the bitch in the tummy?
I thought deep about giving up the money.
Did you ever consider a more humane method such as abortion?
I thought deep about giving up the money.
Then I hear complaints about how Beyonce and Queen Latifah werent invited
to that big dinner Oprah had. People need to understand Oprah does not need
to answer to anybody. Anybody. Oprah runs shit and everyone getting mad at her
for not including them are probably just mad they cant sit on the same
couch Tom Cruise urinated on.
I dont think weve seen anyone commit career suicide quite like the
bigwig over at Cristal. What a fucking moron. Hip-hop wasnt asking for
your approval, millions of hip-hop heads got twisted off your alcohol and helped
put food on your table, and you still felt the need to disrespect hip-hop heads.
Your brand received free advertising in countless videos and songs, and even
kids who have no idea how your shit tastes know what Cris is. Im
sure all your arrogant Buick-driving patrons who get silly off your liquor and
pop some Viagra arent going to stop drinking the piss because it was on
106 and Park. There was absolutely no need for you to come out and say anything
negative about your customers. Think of all the brands who made their product
and unexpectedly got love from the hip-hop community. Im sure all those
gay polo-making companies never envisioned hip-hop embracing their gay polos,
but they did, and they sure as hell didnt complain. Louis Roderer, the
idiot who opened his piehole, should hire a team (you know hes not smart
enough to do it himself) to calculate how much money his bummy little company
made from (free) hip-hop advertising as well as how many bottles sold at hip-hop
themed nightclubs and burn that money. Take that shit out of the books and burn
it. This dude was born a few generations too late because he would have fit
right in during the Jim Crow days.
Props to Jay-Z for boycotting Cristal. I never really messed with Cristal or
any of the other expensive liquors. The most high-end I go is Corona, and thats
only for special occasions. And also props to Jay-Z for giving money to some
schools. We all focus so much on his moves as president and so-called comeback
that his charity work can go unnoticed. Sharing $30,000 among six schools isnt
on Oprahs level, but its better than nothing.
The feds recently raided a studio and got one of the Franchize Boyz. They found
eleven pounds of marijuana and they reportedly have video footage of guys trying
to flush the weed down the toilet. Im not a physicist and Im not
a drug dealer, but Im guessing eleven pounds of weed doesnt just
go down the toilet like an extra value meal. Im thinking eleven pounds
of anything would be extremely difficult to flush. I remember in high school
when one of my friends flushed his little dime bag down the toilet. He was pissed
the rest of the day. If he was that pissed over a little bit, I cant imagine
how pissed those guys must have been flushing down eleven pounds of ganja. Apparently
its true that they do indeed slang in their white tee.
Props to JJ Redick for getting a DUI. The most amazing part about how he accomplished
this was by pulling a u-turn when he saw the police trap. Those two margaritas
really must have hit him hard. I thought Duke was supposed to be a good school
and all, but why dont they know how to party? It would be horrible if
the stripper at the lacrosse party was really raped, but the fact she was even
hired shows how lame lacrosse players are. Chances are a lot of Duke co-eds
wouldnt really be into watching a bunch of dudes get lap dances by 30
year-old strippers. Of course some would be interested, and some would even
pretend they were lesbians to get more attention from guys, but most would probably
leave. That means youre stuck with a room full of guys and two old strippers.
Hell of a party Dukies. What exactly were they going to do when the strippers
left? Play truth or dare and go ding-dong-ditch the basketball players? Shit,
the basketball players would be too drunk off wine coolers to respond
Speaking of bad driving, why does DMX still have a license? Doesnt anyone
love DMX enough to take away his keys and get him a chauffeur? Hes just
had two recent traffic violations, and its not just driving without a
seatbelt. He was going 161/kph, which is 100 miles per hour. If hes allowed
on the road, its going to end very badly for him and possibly for someone
else. What else does DMX have to do to prove to everyone that hes unfit
Thats about it for now. I have to figure out the best way to flush these
eleven pounds of white tees.
