I Apologize

I'm knowing mostly I ain't right but damn I am trying
And it's a good nigga inside but man I can't find him

My niggas get the good girls, I just get to fuck a bitch
Some niggas want this lifestyle, I don't get the just of it
My ex is calling right now, we shouldn't be discussing this
I tell you you're my only one, you really don't be trusting it
Got a couple secrets locked, I don't want you busting it
So when I leave my phone somewhere, I don't want you touching it
I swear I love you so much, I don't want you sucking it
Questions about condoms, I just get to ducking it
Cheating ain't fun though, I just get the rush of it

It's way more than the surface, like the moon they say is curved
But til that day arrives, I iTune and play that NERD
Because I know how you feel, I really think you doesn't
You told me you would wait for me, I really knew you wasn't
What's up with the new guy? I heard he do construction
You couldn't make my party huh? You knew I threw that function
You fucking with my homies now? You knew I knew a Justin
I just hope you happy though whatever you come up with
I ain't set on love yet, I'm just cool adjustin
Besides you like fancy spots, I'm just cool with Truxtons
I don't know what it was, I just knew it wasn't
Cause you the flashing lights type and I don't do the clubbing
Right after the 2nd date, I don't move to husband
And you could probably tell right now I wasn't too acustomed to taking responsibility
I'm talking chivalry and I'm apologizing to any girl that had to deal with me
Fuck being real with you, I'm just being real with me
We can make a home love, you just gotta build with me
I don't need that loud shit, you just gotta chill with me
If life's a bumpy road, it's a lot of hills with me
Never let em see you sweat, it's a lot concealed in me
I wanna do it the right way, it's a lot instilled in me
And still with me is the very first time you said you will
But all I guess I really wanna know is if you still miss me

Closer To My Dreams

Females look but fuck em they inconsistent
It's either she a dog or I'm scared of commitment
Neither one works so I think it's best we kick it
Love women, hate bitches. Yeah it's a difference
I got it down to a science, I'm giving you the physics

I don't fear shit but a judge that's mad with a grudge cause I made his yearly salary a week selling drugs
Give your bitch love only if we talkin tennis
That's zero zip nada, you can holla bout some business

Why I stay up? No five hour shots
I just don't wanna go back to selling five dollar rocks, so I'm on it
Living for the moment learning hard life lessons cause I'm young & still growing
Father's only son, mama's lil boy
Moving in and outta town with a package got me 'noid
Cause I'd rather take a chance before I ever be employed by a cracker who don't view me as a man but as a boy

Probably never get a chance if you meet me at a club but you can get dick, when I feel like it
It's a party in my bedroom, your girlfriends invited
I gotta her diking, I bet she like it
Swimming in her pussy like a muthafuckin pirate
Higher than the pilot, I can't lift my eyelids

Where the bad bitches at with the asses that's fat? And their ass all nice
Looking like God kissed her and blessed her twice
Might dress her in white, jump the broom and throw rice
Yeah right, fuck a bitch is what I'm screaming to the grave
Look I'm married to tha mula Hallelujah I'm paid

Yella in my bedroom singing acappella like like she gettin closer to the climax
I fuck em and replace em then erase em out my contacts
Addressbook give em no heart
Lotta fishes in the water and I'm feeling like a shark, feast up
I'm young and I'm active
I got some shit I'm tryna learn, you can help me practice
We study on the mattress, that's where my class is
Nothing but a t-shirt, that's easy access
She like me for my assets, not what I possess
So all I do is fuck her, work her out like a Bowflex
Keep up with the progress, I'm young and I'm hopeless
California weed only thing keeping me focus

Pray For Me

I woke up without a heartbeat.
But I remember we was just in the car deep,
Was at the light and got approached by a car thief.
He pulled out but didn't ask for no car keys
A loud noise without a voice
But im tryna scream out shit is not fair.
I can't tell you where im at or how i got here.
Surrounded by all white, maybe its just cloudy.
Escorted by to men who knew everything about me.
Both of em so strong, kept saying "hold on", feel like my souls gone,
Naked no clothes on.
I know this cant be my fate i scream wait as they drop me in front of a gate.
They left no trace, i could see my every breath like a cold day.
Stood before a man with no face, he said to me;

"Please don't make this any harder"
Who the fuck is you?

"My child, I am your father"
I only got one dad..

"Is that a fact to you, he left you when u was young,
I brought him back to you. your real close to heaven,
Few get to step in, now tell me what you've done to deserve to be let it in"

Look I'm far from a christian not big on religion
But I aint done too much wrong my entire time living.
Never killed never tried to, though I been lied to,
Was once suicidal, never read the bible.
I always been a care taker, try to nurse people.
At times it back fired hurt people hurt people.
Plus I never used your name in vein but you should know everything
I'm being asked to explain.

"I know you stole from your mothers purse"
You cant count that, that was way back when..

"It's still a sin"
But I was ten

"You robbed peoples stores"
Yea and you made me see jail

"But I also see you lay your hands on a female,
Sold drugs to parents, none of that was needed,
Abandoned your child, on every girl you cheated.
Done wrong to people that only want the best for you.
Any time you thought u were alone i was next to you"
When it come to baby moms god you gave me the worst one..

"But that was your second child Joe, u shoulda kept the first one"
I ain't have a job, ain't have a pot to piss in

"Look, i gave you a gift and u made the wrong decision.
Held on to resentments even in doing business.
I lead by example, I take forgiveness.
Your entry cannot be guaranteed.
Not when you live with anger, envy, greed, pride, sloth, lust even gluttony.
Everything you shouldn't if you'd want to join my company"
Look I'm only human i ain't perfect

"That I understand, when i take u out a jam you dont even think to worship
And when you do, you never talk about what you can do for me
Just what I can do for you
I blessed you with health, family and wealth
with all the blessing you've received you still always want help"

Yea there's been times in my life i needed help to make money
but why everything I love, you manage to take from me.
yet u stand there and question a nigga that tries hard and finds away
when u keep dealing him fucked up cards.
you make mistakes like me far as i can see i think is a mockery
whenever rich niggas win the lottery.
gave us bush twice god,
I hate to be rude but you let skinny niggas starve
give obese niggas food.
the nerve of you tellin me i dont deserve to stay here
when you gave us drugs and guns. you put aids here.
take a look at you, your ass is so cold hearted;
the hard shit is you bring babies in the world retarted.
I know most my actions will put me in a cell
but how you mad at me when you putting me through hell.

"See my child, you need grattitude. maybe just a sample.
I never give a person anything they cant handle.
dont tell me bout everything you had to go through
there's reasons for my actions even if I never show you.
kept trying with you, all you did was hurt me,
still gave you chances to prove that you was worthy.
and so I sat with you on the train, I asked you for change,
You kept calling me names.
You probably didn't notice I was the store clerk,
You put the gun to me got money for no work.
My child I know you have it in you to indeed stop.
This is not your final calling just a brief stop.
Hope you hear my words and understand.
so when I send you back you should be a better man.
look at life different, the next time we see each other,
they'll be no need for talk whenever we meet each other"

Balls In Your Mouth

Sometimes, posts don't really need descrptions. All I need to tell you guys is that I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a band. And one of their songs they've created is entitled "Balls In Your Mouth". And I happened to recently get my hands on a copy of the song. And it brought back crazy sentimental memories for me. Even though this will definitely be your first time hearing this record, check it. Yeah.

I don't have much writing chilling in the wings. Usually, I write something and post it that day. There's always exceptions when I sit on things to write them. One of these instances happened recently, when I was asked by the good folks over at Us Versus Them to write them a music blog post. 25 of my favorite songs. I provided them the list and I kinda forgot I even sent it in, not even gonna lie. However, I stumbled across this yesterday. Check it out, and check out that site. It's well worth it, and it's in the blog roll found in the bottom right corner of our site. We support writing that's worthy of it.

Sometimes, I just like to go link hopping on Youtube. I don't even need to be in a certain kind of mood to begin link hopping. Just find one random link or a blog or whatnot, and begin my odyssey. I usually forget videos I watch, but my link hopping just now was so epic that I had to just link up these videos. Hopefully you all enjoy this videos as much as I did. And if not, you need a new sense of humor. Or to get laid. Either/Or.

Say Queensbridge

Before "Say Queensbridge" was immortalized in this video:

There were quite a few decent rappers to come out of that notorious New York apartment complex. I could be here listing songs all day long, but I figured I'd list two of my favorites right quick.

"Oochie Wally"

Nature - "What You Know", track 14 below

I don't like embedding links like that, but that was literally the only way I found an online version of that song. It's not even on Youtube. Fail.

BCS Coaches Poll

Stefan recently asked me had that new Big Sean “Finally Famous Vol 3” mixtape dropped. It hadn’t, it missed its reported leak date, but seemingly zero fanfare was made about this pushback. Haven’t heard any “When is this tape gonna drop? Why hasn’t it dropped”, which is weird when compared to that of his XXL peers Wale & Wiz Khalifa with their recent mixtape releases. It made me wonder just where I would place Big Sean on a ranking of artists to have received the XXL blessing of being named the top 10 for that year.

I had only started paying attention during the 2nd running of the list. There was a list created in 2008, and I was surprised a lot of those artists have managed to carve themselves a foothold in the rap game. Anyways, I figured I would rank them where I saw fit based on ARTISTRY. This is not a “who can outrap who” kind of list. This is about which artists do I find more enjoyable.

This list encompasses all 3 lists, but will only feature the top 20. The ten disqualified artists are Saigon, Papoose, Gorilla Zoe, Young Dro, Charles Hamilton, Mickey Factz, Cory Gunz, Donnis, Jay Rock & Fashawn. I either have heard material from this person and wouldn’t consider them one of my favorite artists, or I haven’t heard much material from that person. The material I have heard never left me like “Oh my gosh, I need to download everything they’ve ever done”. Like for example, I have yet to hear anything good from Donnis & Jay Rock. Yeah.

Anyways, let’s get this started.

20. B.o.B

Dude is obviously very multitalented. He can sing, rap, play guitar, everything. Except make cohesive bodies of work. I would love to hear him stick to a lane or at least create transitions when he decides to jump around back and forth. But he doesn’t. So he has to be #20 on the list, although he’s probably one of the most talented people on the list.

19. OJ Da Juiceman

OJ has a very clearly defined lane, crunk/hype music, and he does it very well. He uses his voice less as a vessel for his rhymes and more as an instrument. Every second of dead space on a song, OJ says something just to keep the track motoring on. Hence the abundance of ad-libs.

18. Ace Hood

I laughed Ace Hood off the face of the earth until I heard this freestyle. This left me intrigued as to his lyrical ability, so while I was at the Target buying The Game’s “L.A.X.” album I spent the $8 needed to buy his debut album. Very surprising, very cohesive body of work. He attacks he track with tenacity. Haven’t heard the 2nd album, and quite frankly I have no desire too. Sometimes you just have to leave good enough be.

17. Asher Roth

Dude has above average rap skills. Obviously, he’s assisted by the whole being white thing, and rapping about college student subject matter, but when push comes to shove, he can rap and occasionally make some good songs. If he keeps up his consistency, he should go far.

16. Rich Boy

Very very very solid debut album. He was definitely assisted by the stellar production from Polow Da Don, but he doesn’t embarrass himself on any tracks. Some of his follow up stuff has been up to par with where he set the bar initially, but the majority of it hasn’t. But he still has time on his side.

15. Crooked I & 14. Joell Ortiz

I put these two together not only because they are in the same rap group together, but because they’re pretty much in the same predicament. Both are superior wordsmiths, having you wanting to break your rewind button, but neither can make a cohesive song to save their life. It says something about an artist when the best songs in your catalog never have a hook on them. Maybe they should work on that before they end up being this guy.


13. Lil Boosie

Boosie is no wordsmith, but he brings his pain directly to the listeners in a certain “I’m so serious about the shit that I’m rapping about” kind of way. Whether Boosie is angry on a song, or love struck, you can tell it and his emotion takes the track from being another repeat of routine subject matter to a totally different experience. Sucks that we’ve probably heard the last Boosie new material we will get with him having current legal troubles.

12. Big Sean

Dude can rap his ass off with the punchline rap. He’s like a less violent version of Cassidy mixed with Loon’s swagger, if that makes sense. He should have the easiest route to stardom being signed to Kane West’s “GOOD Music” label but until he can put together consistent song output to match his lyrical tenacity, he will have an uphill battle.

11. Pill

This guy isn’t going to rap your socks off per say, but he does mix Boosie’s emotion with an ability to tell tales of hustling and drug dealing with glorifying the acts or looking for sympathy. His kind of “This is the environment I see around me and I wish I could change it but I can’t” helplessness pulls at the listener to where you can visualize the trap goin ham. You just never want to step foot in the trap, but you can picture it.

10. Nipsey Hussle

Nipsey Hussle can rap amongst a variety of styles but still bring street authenticity to the track. But rather than your just run of the mill street rapper, he has witty punchilnes and an ability to lyrically manhandle a track. His blunt/straightforward bars will have you nodding your head into hypnosis, just vibing out to someone attack a song.

9. Plies

Probably the most unpopular pick on this list, but it’s my list. Yeah. Plies, while not exactly having bulletproof street cred, puts together cohesive songs and albums. He mixes in enough nignorance with “oldhead trying to get out the game” wisdom that makes each album an intriguing listen. Plies’ intelligence comes across in his interviews, but in order to put food on the table, he has to do what he has to do. Can’t fault him for realizing that.

8. J. Cole

One of a few on this list that actually is an above average producer as well, J. Cole has a certain introspective twist to his bars that make you look at life differently. He has songs that make you go “Damn, someone else is feeling the same way that I’ve felt at one point or another”. That gift is something that not a lot of artists possess, so the fact that he has that skill so early in his rap career is only going to help him.

7. Curren$y

This is one of those polarizing artists where either you love him or you don’t (pause). Curren$y is a weedhead. There’s no other way of putting it. But somehow, he’s able to make tracks that are kind of like stream of consciousness talking over tracks. He never seems to be pressed while rapping, and very rarely breaks from his signature monotone, but his usage of words is something to be amazed by. This rating takes into account that dismal “Pilot Talk” album. Not every step can be a forward one.

6. Blu

This guy has managed to perfect everyman rap in a way that’s not preachy sounding. He talks about everyday stuff that people go through in a way that helps you get through your day and look forward to the next. All the while packing enough swagger, braggadocio and wordplay to make it work.

5. Freddie Gibbs

Freddie is one of my favorites for just “I know I’m better than you, I know I’m realer than you and if you disagree I will fuck you up” style. He represents a kind of cold reality in his raps that makes you want to stay as far away from Gary Indiana as possible. And the art of double time rapping is a lost art, but it’s something that Freddie has perfected with his Midwest upbringing.

4. Lupe Fiasco

Basically a replica of Blu but without 2 major label releases under his belt. The only reason he’s not higher on the list is because he is holding back material from the fans. If you have quality product, you have to supply. That’s how business works. But it’s hard to deny such high quality work he’s put out so far.

3. Kid Cudi

Cudi does by far the least rapping out of anyone on this list, but it’s not about rapping. It’s about being an artist, and he’s one of the best artists out here nowadays. Cudi has a type of openness of his songs where he’s able to channel whatever emotions that he has into song format. Combine that with his grasp of melodies and he makes some of the most cohesive projects out. Cudi will be around for awhile.

2. Wiz Khalifa

In terms of punchline rap or deep introspective tracks, Wiz lacks sorely in that area. But, Wiz sells a lifestyle in his music. The “Party Life”. That’s all he raps about, that’s all he claims to rap about. He doesn’t fool anyone. As I saw once, all of Wiz’s music is either about smoking weed, hanging out with girls or smoking weed with girls – probably your girl. But the music is infections, and has been for awhile now. Wiz is a major movement in music by selling this lifestyle.

1. Wale

Wale is a polarizing figure after his debut album. He tried to be too many things to too many people a la B.o.B and failed miserably. However, whenever he puts out other material, the lyrical ability he has is undeniable. "The Mixtape About Nothing” and “More About Nothing” mixtapes have enough introspective tracks to rival a Common, as well as lyricism you would expect a Big Boi. Very few artists could put a record like “Ambitious Girl” on their project and have it make sense. Once Wale is comfortable with his identity and not falling victim to the Lady Gaga’s of the world, he will be a force to be reckoned with.

And P.S., I would take any of the top 5 I named over this guy:

But not necessarily this guy.

There Can Be Only One

One of my favorite shows growing up was "Highlander". Whether it was the movies, the animated TV show, or the TV series, it was amazing. There were always these fight scenes and then the main character would go "There Can Be Only One", then proceed to do his finishing move*. Anyway, me and my brother and my cousins would all joke around whenever we did something cool like "There can be only one." It was the most gangstaest saying you could ever use to punctuate a action. No one can top the Highlander line.

I was reading this article that Stefan sent me earlier. It was about sites that post the best looking college professors in the nation. Yes, you read that right. People submit candid photos - I hope no action shots - of who they think are hot profs, then people vote on them using the trusty - rate on a 1-10 scale** - and the winners are posted. Some teachers find out about their rankings, others don't.

Because people don't know when to leave good enough alone, someone decided to conduct a study on that research. I'll spare you having to read the abstract or thesis paper on the subject, but one of the main points of the article was a female professor from a school in California who makes her looks her priority. She says, and I quote:

"When I have to teach the heavy stuff about race," she told the Chronicle, "I make sure my hair is done, my outfit is cute. I know it's going to be a difficult conversation for students, and if I have a cute dress on, it becomes easier to talk about race and prejudice."

Yeah, because that's just what Dr. King had in mind when he gave his "I Have A Dream" speech.

Anyway, the article links to Ms. Utley's personal(?) professional(?) website. I'm no collegiate scholar, and I don't pretend to be, but I can imagine that posting what sounds like the music from the menu screen of a Tyler Perry movie isn't very professional. She describes herself as an "expert in hip hop, race, and love relationships". Isn't that what Terri McMillan proclaimed herself to be? We all remember how that turned out.

Stella got her groove back, and while she was out her Taye Diggs was busy trying on her clothes and walking around in her pumps. Yeah.

Ms. Utley's website lists her as an author of a book that comes in 2012. I'm not gonna even comment on that, that's just too easy. Matter of fact, everything about this chick is a joke. I refuse to take anyone seriously who uses sex appeal to ease race talks and is on the advisory board of the Yale Anthology of Rap. That sounds like a Brother Ali love fest. Not saying that Brother Ali isn't good, but he isn't good. Her school says she's on the route to tenure, and I'm glad, because that's going to be the only long term relationship she ever finds herself in. She needs to go to the Chalie Boy school of self-esteem and learn how to love herself. Because if she doesn't, there's someone else that would take her place as leading expert on hip hop love.

*Depending on what the show was, the move would be different. In the animated show, he would hit people with a boomerang or something. The TV show was a off camera beheading and slow gangsta walk into the horizon. The movie showed full blown decapitation. It was amazing.

**This is the only scale that holds weight with me: the Binary Scale

Pigmentally Challenged

I have a love/hate relationship with white rappers. The majority of them are beyond average. Or even dare I say below average. There are some rappers who are truly great and have their own identities & their own sounds. People who make good music. Then there are others who if they weren't white, they wouldn't have a record deal. I wanna talk about a few of the more recent artists.

First up is White. Down with Young Jeezy's CTE camp, White makes down south trap music. But for some reason I can't take him seriously. I'll give you one guess why.

Whoever told him white person dredlocks were a good idea must be a fan of cruel jokes. Or hats like these:

Either way, it's turrible.

Next is Sam Adams. Guy had the #1 debut selling album on iTunes. Beat out DJ Khaled's album which has the smash single "All I Do Is Win" on it. How does someone who has no buzz, no promo and zero good tracks on the EP reach #1 on the iTunes charts? By buying their own material back. That's how. Seriously, dude having a #1 EP isn't even believable if this is his best record:

I'm sorry but if I was at a party and this record came on, I would use that time to refill my drink or play swords. Yeah, I went there. Sam Adams looks like the preppy kid that was beefing with Method Man & Redman in "How High". I refuse to take him seriously in the rap game.

Then we have artists like Mac Miller. Dude hails from Pittsburgh, home of major music move maker Wiz Khalifa. He has the same production team as Wiz, but has enough flow to excel on these tracks. Here's one of the better tracks on the "KIDS" mixtape.

Mac Miller should blame Sam Adams & White for me not wanting to like his music. Maybe even Asher Roth to a certain degree. But the music is undeniable.

Bonus: Mac Miller

"Good Evening"

"Nikes On My Feet"

Thelma & Louise

I want you, cuz you make my heart skip the beat that I drum to
I want to be the one you run to, when pain confronts you
You're everything, sometimes I get nervous when I'm in front you
You can hear it in my voice when I ask you if you comfortable
Look how love do, I'd practice the Art of War for you like Sun Tzu
Come through and arouse you every morning like the sun do
If you blackout and collapse I want to help you to come to
Notice I haven't yet gotten to what I want from you
I want you to come to when I come through and make you shine like the sun do
I want you to be the valley for my river to run through
You're everything, send your soul through your lips to my heart
Sweet music will start I want you to be the muse for my art
When people try to rip us apart we got to work to stay together
Go through the seasons of love and never change with the weather
This is my wish list, what I want not what I need there's a difference
These days I'm learning that words got power so I'ma be specific

Take It To Da House

Sometimes the best comedy doesn’t come from comedians. It comes from “behind a computer screen” Monday morning quarterbacks. The people who usually don’t have shit going for them in their life, but they are quick to critique what celebs and other entertainment figures do. This would happen to be one of those instances.

This is a Trina video – yeah I know, just bare with me here – for her new song “My Bitches”. Please don’t stop reading there. Trina, who for all intents and purposes, has been recycling the same tired “Sex sells/I’m the baddest bitch” schtick for the past 15 years, releases her new song for the average everyday bitch. Or is it for five star bitches? I don’t know, I’m confused.

While watching the video, I couldn’t help but think “Wow, some people need to quit while they’re ahead.” This Trina is not the same "Nann Nigga” Trina. Or even “Look Back At It” Trina from a few years ago. Somewhere between fucking Trick Daddy, fucking Lil Wayne, fucking Birdman, fucking B.G., fucking Kenyon Martin, fucking you, fucking me, fucking the hypeman, fucking Kat Stacks, and giving up the pussy to anyone else with a heartbeat and testicles, Trina just looks wore the fuck out. Like, she looks like the old stripper in the strip club that is past the point of lying like “I’m doing this to support my kids or pay my tuition”. The chick that’s the “I’m stripping because I never learned how to love myself” stripper. Trina never learned how to love herself. HNH.

After watching the video, I started to begin a little roast of this trash I was watching. Luckily, the readers of already did that for me. Just sit back, grab the tasty beverage of your choice, and enjoy the show.

Moped Chicks

Music is just like females. There are some chicks that you talk about with your boys like “Yo that bitch fine than a muhfucker”. Others you keep that feeling to yourself until that one night you find yourself drunk and alone with her and you say “I might as well”. One of my friends refers to them as moped chicks. They're really fun to ride until one of your friends sees you riding it. Then you have to explain yourself. Never fun.

Everyone likes different stuff, but some stuff you’re just too afraid to tell others. Too afraid of how they will view you afterwards. Unfortunately, I could care less what you all think about me. So here are 5 of my current guilty pleasure records. I really don’t think any of them need a further explanation. You just need to listen to the songs for yourself.

New Kids On The Block & Ne-Yo “Single”

Lil B – “I Got Bitches”

Omarion – “Speedin”

Hold up, stop the music. Omarion, why do you think you're too good to allow embedding of your Youtube videos? Your music is good, but you're one step away from being this guy.

You've been warned. Let's move forward amicably.

Rihanna – “Rude Boy”

YG – “Toot It & Boot It”

Au Naturale

In this auto-tune day and age, it's always refreshing to hear a dope acoustic song. It lets you know that actual talent still exists without the audio equivalent of Photoshop making a radio smash single. This is a song by Childish Gambino AKA Donald Glover, actor and writer for several NBC comedy shows. This dude has several rap projects, this being the highlight in my opinion.

This song has been on repeat for me for the past 2 weeks and is now the most played song in my iTunes, for good reason. But its dope to hear dude singing with just an acoustic setup killing it.

Bonus Childish Gambino "Do Ya Like"

P.S. This is a dope acoustic Lady Gaga track, which makes me wonder what she would be like without all the theatrics.

Duncan Pinderhughes

Talking about Beyonce and JC Penney's just reminded me about the scene from "Class Act" where Duncan Pinderhughes says "This is JC Penney's Buddy. Top of the line". It starts at around 9:00 in the video. But it just so happens the entire "Class Act" movie is on Youtube in about 7 parts. This is well worth watching if you've never seen the movie before. I know white friends from Iowa who have seen it before. If you are black and you haven't, you have no excuse now. Just like black people that don't know whow to play spades.


Rollin With Kid N Play

Ay Boo Boo

Hurricane Chris remixed Yogi Bear style. What's not to like?

Who Knew Beyonce liked JC Penney?

This song is hilarious for multiple reasons, but I think the reason I find it most hilarious is tht its about a celebrity doing regular person stuff. Verse one is at Burger King, verse 2 is at JC Penney's and verse three is at a liquor store. And it makes me wonder among other things: How it must be hilarious to see a celebrity doing regular people stuff. Like imagine going to Pep Boys to get a oil change and you see Fat Joe in line behind you. Or Mr. Cheeks from the Lost Boys picking up his dry cleaning. I would absolutely lose it if I went to like a bank and saw Skee-Lo. Or Young MC. Or Montell Jordan.

Speaking of celebs doing regular people stuff, this video never gets old.

Surface Dwellers

Knowledge you find inside my mind is designed to kill fear
Did you know the bible was written in by William Shakespeare?
It was done in the King James version in his 46th year
The 46th psalm is coded from the top down to the rear
Wanted his name over his work to be seen and read clear
But at the time that was something King James wasn't tryna hear
Study the history of King James and you'll find out he was a queer
Might explain how Shakespeare didn't pay attention and listen clear
Go to the 46th psalm, what I'm saying is not fake
Start at the word God, count 46 words down - you will see shake
Then go to the bottom, you'll see the word refuge appear
Start right there, count 46 words up, you will see spear
Shakespeare - no coincidence, they don't teach this in classes
They tampered with the holy scriptures and then fed it to the masses
Confused by misenterpreted signs and allegories
Parables are painted out like fairy tales and wild stories
That brainwashed the world leaving theological masters
What was once the word of God is now a theatrical disaster
Words they gave us only serve to enslave us
Hurt us in murderous ways and got us out here hoping ghost worshipping save us
They don't want you black man, you think you know yourself don't you?
You got the last name, but that was the name of the slave-master that owned you
The same one that beat and hung you and put you through this anguish
We in America not knowing our real names or real language
Learn the location and description of Jesus if you've never seen him
If you don't know the lines it's impossible for you to read inbetween them
Now are we so gone that ain't no black pride and thats real sad
Eminem can diss black women and we don't even get mad... we surface dwellers

Lets cut to the chase and put the zodiac in it's place
Horroscopes and signs, pagan gods deceivin' a race
Now when you claim that you a Virgo (I'm a Virgo) are you sure that you are?
Do you worship the constellations or the one who created the star?
Take months of the year - September is the 9th month but I'm driven
To inform you that the root word 'Septo' means seven
So how did it get to be number 9? somehow it don't equate
How can October be the 10th month when 'Octo' means 8
Like an octopus or octogon - 8 legs and 8 sides
Artificial names invented through mythological lies
All named after so called pagan Gods in heaven
See 'Nova' means 9 but November's month number 11
To the unfathomable abyss of knowledge I delve
D-E-C 'Deca' means 10 yet December's month number 12
See before you try and test me I insist that you
Try to reasearch and see that your calendars been misconstrewed
See March was the 1st month, April used to be 2nd
May and June was 3 and 4 so now lets do some checkin'
See 2 months got removed - Quintilis and Sextilis
It's time to get this knowledge now before the effects kill us
Quint meaning 5, Sex meaning 6 - it don't stop either
They added July and August named after Julius and Augustus Caesar
Thats 5 and 6, September was 7, Octobers 8, November was 9 - now you see it's all back in line
December's 10, January's 11th so go report this
February was the 12th and the last month plus the shortest

Passing Time

We ended up on the jump, on the daily getting up, you and I were floating on air
We were so tempted to touch, tried to watch my manners, but we couldn’t help but take it there
It happened so fast, now there’s no turning back, you made this a relationship
Every day you’re mad, you’re saying I’m the worst, I’m nothing that you expected

I never said that you were my girl and I was your man
So why you holding me to words I never said?
You know you’re gonna move on with your life, but for now we’re just passing time

We already know that this ain’t gonna last much longer, don’t make me the bad guy
We’re only going with the flow, so we won’t be alone, but we’re really passing time
Baby the loving’s real good, no doubt about it
But this ain’t gonna work ‘cause we keep on fighting
We’re just passing time
I ain’t trying to make you mine
We’re just passing time

Girl, how much do I mean? You’re truly special to me but were not compatible
I keep seeing different sides to you that just won’t ride if you were officially mine
Don’t wanna break your heart so get it out your head, what we got ain’t serious
Just keeping you company, you ain’t in love with me, don’t put a tag on us

I never said that you were my girl and I was your man
So why you holding me to words I never said?
You know you’re gonna move on with your life, but for now we’re just passing time

We already know that this ain’t gonna last much longer, don’t make me the bad guy
We’re only going with the flow, so we won’t be alone, but we’re really passing time
Baby the loving’s real good, no doubt about it
But this ain’t gonna work ‘cause we keep on fighting
We’re just passing time
I ain’t trying to make you mine
We’re just passing time

Run Tell That

Apparently this video is setting the Internet ablaze. A friend of mine just sent this to me. How I missed it is beyond me. And I really don't have any words to describe how I felt while watching it either. It is what it is I guess.

Mama There Goes That Man

First attempt at liveblogging. Figured it would be a classic throwback video.

j.nash sex you down part 2 from J.NASHTV on Vimeo.

• Love the green screen, or should I say, red screen intro. Haven’t seen that in a minute
• Who is this cat flexing in that wife beater? And that puffy ass bubble vest?
• They still make bubblevests? Wow. It looks like a Jumpman logo on it too.
• This chick in the video is probably his homeboy’s cousin. Or sister.
• First costume change.
• Why is he going from a bubble vest to a Mr. Rogers cardigan?
• I just died on the slow motion sweater toss.
• The video just turned into a softcore porn
• He needs to put his shirt back on. Looking like a roast chicken © Nutty Professor 2
• These lyrics are absolutely outrageous. Wow.
• The look on this chick’s face throughout the whole video is like “How much am I getting paid for this?”
• Another costume change. Now a bath robe.
• This dude needs a dance move or something. Bsides pop lockin
• Maybe he was trying to be like D’Angelo “Untitled”
• SHADES OFF! Put em back on.
• Did he just say “pumpin with all my might?” wow.
• Dude couldn’t get any at the end. Couldn’t even get inside the door. Guess he couldn’t sex her down that good.
• The faces he’s making are hilarious at the end.
• Why did it change to a 2nd song? That only works in major label releases.
• How fitting is it that he’s singing about baby mama drama at the end of a song about sexing?

Len Bias

Some artists are trash and put out 20 million albums.

Others never even get a shot. Even when, I think, they drop some pretty dope material. Just a few artists and a song of theirs that I like. Shame that these people never got the chance to put out an official album.
