Charlie Murphy!!!

This fella is funny! He is in town at Uptown Comedy Corner tonight and Thursday night. I aint gone be able to make it but it might be worth the ticket; $20 for general admin and $30 for VIP. BE THERE!!!

or at least watch these two videos...

Why are they still arguing?!?

Saw this video on youtube today. And it made me think about this lil mess goin on between 50 and Rick Ross… My question is, if BIG and Pac were alive, would this beef matter?!?

It seems kinda silly to me. The majority already knows that most of the stories told over raps ain’t real noways. Most of the stories are limited to drugs, women, and money. The average nigga’s day is like what Soulja Boy is rappin (“Hop up out the beeeeeeddddd…” etc…) And lets just be honest, in this economy, the average cat that is downloadin the CD aint trafficking a whole lot of not one of them (read: we cant relate unless we’re imagining). Why can’t we just appreciate the art for what it is? How about respectin the nigga cause he can rhyme a lil bit? 50 clownin the fella; Callin Rick’s “Deeper than Rap” trash. And Rick is here talking bout how 50 runnin around ruining other niggas careers rather than letting another black man get his money (this is true, by the way…) I wont quite go as far as to blame 50 for the demise of hip hop in NY (the South is more responsible fro that), but I definitely think that the petty stuff needs to stop. By the way, how did this “beef” start again?!? I sure don’t remember….

Unreleased MJ

The song has the exact same music as America's A horse with no name, the cadence of the words is about the same, and the words aren't too far off from each other. I like Mike but I cant say this song woulda brought anything new to the table, which is probably why it went unreleased. MJ made the right decision. Especially since the original was a classic. Still cool to hear some different music from the greatest performer to ever live tho...

support music PERIOD!

Chocolate Babies (Terrible...)

Just read an article on CNN talking about how single black females are starting to adopt a whole lot more. I don't have any issues with this; its better for a child to have 1 good/qualified parent than no parent at all and being raised by the system. The problem I have is with the statements the doctor made. She said "I had a family who turned a baby down because it was too dark. They said the baby wouldn't look good in family photographs." Crazy, right? But it wasn't quite the thing that raised my eyebrows much... What got me is when she said that some adopting parents walk in and make statements like "I want a baby to look like a Snickers bar, not dark chocolate". And thas when the "I can't believe this..." came out of me. I could almost understand sayin that you dont find the kid attractive but are you SERIOUS?!? A Snickers bar?!? You're picking out a baby and comparing him/her to a SNACK?!? GET OUTTA HERE!!! But maybe I'm the only one who is a lil disturbed by that comment... Black people, we gotta do better... Or at least make up some other reason for turning the child down and pretend that we're are comfortable with the skin color most of our ancestors had (Read: Darkness).

And now to end with a famous quote from the most famous person who nobody knows about... This person, while slightly under the influence, said: "I like babies... And I like Chocolate... So yeah! I like chocolate babies!!!"
