Apparently Kanye got mad and stormed off the stage at the MTV Euro Awards. Props to Kanye for being the only person who cares about getting one of those awards. And no matter how many wine coolers you drink while getting “hyped” for the show, you still get no pass for rushing the stage. It’s always classy when Kanye drops the “if you don’t say I’m the best then you don’t count.” He must have had mad friends in school. “If you’re not my BFF then you’re a loser.” You shouldn’t feel the need to pressure everyone into liking you. Maybe next time mix in some humble pie with the Smirnoff.
If you spend most of your time in jail, when you’re released, can it really be considered “coming home”?
Major props go out to Poison Pen for his 10 Commandments of Internet Thugsterdom. However, there is an amendment that I would like to add with the help of Dee Jekyll: Defriending. What better way to show your disgust/hate with a person than to remove them from your Top 8/Top 24 (depending on how internetically social you are)? Is there anything that can possibly send as strong a message as “you’ve been replaced by someone else?” If it’s just an argument but you still want to be friends with the person, you just move them down from the top row to the bottom row. If they’re already in the bottom row, move them to the last slot (the equivalent to riding in the middle of the backseat in a full car). If they’re already in the last slot, they’re probably worthless and don’t deserve to be there anyway. Replace that person with either a hot girl you would never talk to in real life or somebody who can actually be useful to your daily life. You’re better off putting your Domino’s delivery guy there. I’ve worn the blue, white and red before and trust me, the tips are lousy. I’m sure Domino’s dude would appreciate the gesture.
Flavor Flav’s album is now out, I think. I haven’t seen it but I have heard some cuts off it. I think this is an album that can and will be taken in a few different ways by rap critics.
-a gimmick – It would make sense, being it would have made more sense to drop an album while PE was still popular amongst the masses, but why does Flav wait until he peaks on reality TV to drop an album?
-Flav being Flav – The album is definitely all over the place, which seems to go along with Flav’s personality
-Dudley Perkins on acid – Listen to Dudley’s Expressions and then Flav’s Hollywood
-Minstrelsy – A lot of people like to pull the minstrel card on Flav but it’s probably those same people who would pull another card on someone like Uncle Phil. Flav was in PE and is an ex-crackhead…give the guy a break on all that.
In a past interview with Saigon, he did tell HHG he wanted Flav on The Greatest Story Never Told. I’m guessing he probably feels differently now.
Is anyone else aware of the severity of the police suing the Game for defamation of character? If the North Carolina policemen are successful, are you aware of the huge consequences and repercussions? What if more police take action? If rappers can no longer diss the police, where are the conscious songs going to go? If rappers can slip one line in a 4-minute song about the police being crooked or killing an undercover officer, that song is considered “conscious.” If said rapper has three or four of those songs on their album, the rapper is automatically vaulted into the “conscious street poet” category. If rappers can’t diss the police who can they diss? I guess the next in line to catch the wrath of rappers would be the judges, since that’s usually who you see after the police. Things like gentrification and poor school systems are for backpackers anyways. As long as no one disses the guns or drugs, hip-hop should be able to maintain its equilibrium.
I got an email from Geffen telling me that some of the Game songs posted shouldn’t be up. I wonder what kind of email Game got from Geffen after confessing to leaking his whole album. And does anyone really care about hearing curse words that much that they would rather pay for one with f-bombs than download one sans f-bombs for free?
As long as we’re speaking about leaks, hopefully Def Jam can stop the corny rumors about investigating a leak of Jay-Z’s songs. From what I’ve heard, the lid is kept so tight over there that only a few people have access to Jay’s material. If Jay’s material leaks, the ones to blame would most likely be Just Blaze or Young Guru. I highly doubt Jay is passing out CD’s to his interns and MP3’ing Method Man songs to get feedback. If he is, well, maybe the FBI won’t really have to get involved. And with all the problems in the world today, from Deelishis possibly beings single to Rick Ross properly pushing it in his new suede shoes, I think the interns to the interns at Def Jam as well as the FBI and NYPD could probably find better problems to solve. Besides, the Kingdom Come cover is going to be holographic. Everyone’s going to be copping it on the strength of the hologram anyway. I know I am.
If Jay gets a hologram for his cover, what does Nas get? He should have a talking cover. If that’s too much, he at least deserves a scratch-n-sniff cover. Don’t we all want to know what hip-hop smells like to Nas?
Rumor has it that Nas will be on the “One Blood” remix with Jim Jones. Interesting…
Is Jim Jones really Uncle Jessie’s long-lost twin brother? I think Danny Tanner should initiate a paternity test.
If school is the hustle for Kidz in the Hall, then their label’s hustle should be getting their record in stores. I was at the Best Buy the other day just checking things out and it wasn’t there. Maybe my Best Buy is screwy, but it’s usually got everything. Step your game up, Rawkus.
This is probably not going to be a surprise to most people out there, but the MOB kiss that Baby and Wayne are so fond of is on the back of Gillie da Kid’s new mixtape. I think it’s officially time for Gillie to move on from anything Lil’ Wayne related before his fans decide to move on without him.
And sorry for the AZ interview. I really thought he would be good money on the interview. After the first few questions I really felt like a telemarketer. I know I came with better questions this time than I did for our interview a year ago and his responses were way better. I guess it’s time to go to the “who are your influences?” type questions.
I’m sure Redskins fan is just now coming down from the high of actually winning a football game and Cowboy fan is still almost as mad as Bill Parcells talking about TO at a press conference, but both fans need to, as Michael Scott would say, chillax. A Cowboys/Redskins game is like Saw. Two guys are locked in a room and only one of them will probably make it out, but by the time he/she makes it out they will have already sawed off all their limbs and probably die from blood loss by the time they reach the stairs. Good win, Redskins.
Props to Louis Logic. I’m a little late on his new effort, Misery Loves Comedy, but I’m definitely enjoying it. I don’t know why it took so long for me to pop the disc in because when Sin-O-Matic came out I had that on repeat the first day the promo copy came in the mail. Maybe I should go back to the time when I was strictly underground…
Also, if you’re interested, my Tubgirls are about to snap their six game losing streak. I’m not sure anyone is probably interested to know how Tubgirls celebrate a win.
