she’s sweet and she honestly gives off the realest vibe of any of the thousand members through the revolving door of Kismet’s Kids. Also, she was the ONLY surviving original member besides y’all know who.
My issues with misogyny in Hip Hop (and even R&B now, go figure) are well known and something I will be waxing poetic on soon, a piece that will be a labor of love. But this one strikes me because it’s so BLATANTLY a lyric about date rape. In fact, the line itself IS THE EXACT DEFINITION OF DRUG FACILITATED SEXUAL ASSAULT AND DATE RAPE!
I shit you not. He posted a video to YouTube detailing his idea for doing an, “adult mixtape,” (whatever the hell that means). Either way, he posted said video, not wearing a lab coat or the coonish-pimp attire of our more well known teachers of the twat arts, but in a grey and white striped tee and some oddly creepy looking denim shorts (they totally make me believe he yanked one out after he posted said vid…).
I. Can’t Right. Now… This one has torn me into little tiny unhealthy pieces… It is now reported that Whitney Houston, the GREATEST recording artist of my time, has passed away… I am speechless. As I try to find info on TMZ about her death, it seems the site has crashed, which is no surprise [...]
On the very day we were graced with the presence of Li’l Princess Bleu Ivy, my Twitter timeline was all abuzz (besides all the baby news) of a beef-a-broiling between Common Sense and… *cough* …Drake.
I was pissed. I immediately thought the young bull had got at Common in some sort of parallel universe where monotone crooning in a staccato fashion is somehow referred to as emceeing (which I have always known Common to do with follies along the way as every one with a long career has).
But that’s because quite frankly, I hadn’t really LISTENED to his most recent effort, The Dreamer/The Believer. Sure, I have HEARD the album but I honestly have conditioned myself to not listen to lyrics and just hear the beat. SMH. I blame Li’l Wayne and that fiasco Li’l B… Pretty much ANY RAPPER whose name begins with Li’l over the age of 10, but that’s another post too…
Before y’all start throwing around “baby hater” accusations, let me be clear. My issue is not with the little bundle of money joy they just had. I truly pray for them to be good parents, able to raise their child to be very level-headed, kind and intelligent despite the fame and infamy she was born into. Little Princes Blue Ivy Carter is the Kizzy of the Black entertainment machine right now and that’s pretty awesome, I guess… *shrug*
Where I take the most umbrage is with the STANS.
Also jumping into the Rap-Up fray this year is Bekay, a Slaughterhouse member and generally wild white rapper… His version touched on many of the same subjects (Anthony Weiner, Casey Anthony, Penn State) including just a bit more elaboration on a few…
wow. this one hurts… apparently, my all time FAVORITE artist is in trouble with the IRS… Prince. i guess times are hard for everyone… according to HipHopWired, the man responsible for great tunes like 1999, Purple Rain and Erotic City owes a few hundred thousand in back taxes on his properties. his PRN Music Group [...]
according to reports from TMZ.com, Matthew Knowles, father of the over-hyped and overexposed Beyonce (and RUMORED father of Kelly Rowland), a DNA test has confirmed that Mathew is the father of Alexsandra Wright’s brand new baby boy, Nixon.
Conrad Murray has relocated from his Houston, Texas home to Los Angeles this week in order to be ready when charges are filed. As of yet, Los Angeles prosecutors have not announced what those charges might be.
the rumors about the child are making the internet rounds again, partly because of a possibly fabricated story of an interview that he “allegedly” gave recently. and i’m straddling the fence on this one… I mean, yes, the kid was born in the “pre-Bey-Z” days, but hmmm…
ok. i can’t WAIT 2 hear the new version of We Are The World!!! are you as excited as i am? u gotta be!!! the list of people on the track goes on forever, altho, none of the original artists are on the track… i agree with that choice… all in all, i REALLY hope [...]
