In memorandum of the fallen rappers, either in real life or in career existence, let us pause to recognize two examples of how trill it is in the field...
Really Dead MCs:
He got SOULJA SLIMMED in the Big Apple early this week. Lupe and Capo both expressed their remorse.
Is it me or is Bol right; nobody cares?
Not because life isn’t precious, but rather that everybody expects rappers to die, like they know that every day an American soldier will be killed in Iraq. Casualties of war…
Career Dead MCs:
THIS PRICK had the old woman anthem of the summer in 2004. This song had a large impact on my current philosophy of the music industry – buffoonery sells. Plus he sounded like somebody’s grandfather on a weekend Cialis/whiskey bender. I can’t front; for a long time I thought he looked LIKE THIS.
To pay respects to the deceased, please CLICK HERE and leave a comment or something. Notice no news announcements since 2004…
DR. DEATH was released this week from federal prison. I could name more than a few wack ass rappers, producers, "urban" radio programmers and record label A&Rs who should Google him. Do us all a favor and get his contact info ASAP so you can get on the list. Early!
This past week was a spectacular spectacle for "outdoorsmen", or those males among us who have been claiming "Thug" and really repping for Bulldogs (the gay club Mase was circling when he ghost-rode the whip and got gaffled by 1X).
TEDDY PENDERASS is now suspect in the eyes of yours truly after I watched the SOHH video of him speaking on Ray-J's huge meat. Plus he seemed geeked up off that X, which means that he just might have been dreaming about huge meat while conducting such a nullus interview. Check his breathing game at the end of the clip, and his teeth clicking. Fiendish.
Beans is also under consideration until further notice. Maybe he should fall back on Kanye and Pharrell; they seem to have internet geeks on deck...
Bittervibes , the infamous yet elusive Vibe Magazine insider who helped bring down Mimi Valdez, the overpaid, overhyped groupie... oops... editor who ran the ship into the iceberg, appears to have given up her now pointless rage against the machine. Ever since Danyel Smith took over, Vibe seems like it's at least on the road to recovery, even though I can't imagine magazines winning again like they used to...
What was the last magazine title you purchased, when and why?
