Rap Pack?

I missed the Grammys…by design.

I don’t know what the big fuss is with M.I.A. performing while preggers. I mean, what’s the worst that could happen? The baby’s first word could be “swagger” but it’s no reason to be up in arms. Right?

The performance wasn’t that great.

What in the name of S-Curl is going on with Kanye’s hair?

Another Classic: Berry Gordy’s The Last Dragon

Okay, so maybe it’s more like a cult classic. I don’t really understand what the appeal is because the acting is terrible (save for Sho’Nuff because I think Julius Carry did a wonderful job lol). But there’s just something about this movie that holds me captive. Sho’Nuff is one of my favorite movie characters EVER. There are rumors that there is a remake in the works with Samuel L. Jackson playing Sho’Nuff. If this is true, my life will be complete*.

*By complete I mean I will have another reason to love/dislike Sam Jackson.

This scene is one of my favorites in this cheesy movie. It’s definitely not Sho’Nuff’s most famous scene but I appreciate it.

Who plays this garbage? … Shut up, bitch! *Kicks in jukebox* -The meanest, prettiest, baddest mo-fo low down around this town, SHO’NUFF, the Shogun of Harlem.

Sometimes, when I hear Soulja Boy on the radio or see one of his videos on tv, I want to kick the somtheing, so I understand Sho’Nuff’s reaction to the audio garbage.

Another one, just because:

Let’s take a moment to appreciate that Sho’Nuff was rocking shutter shades before Kanye West was on it. Stronger glasses=Sho’Nuff glasses.

SOTM: “Go Hard” Some DJ, Kanye West and T-Pain

This song must be crack because I’m addicted.

I have my gripes with DJ Khaled and his gratuitous use of the word “nigga”. But Kanye goes hard.

It’d be easy to make jokes about this song but I think it’s likeable enough to be getting along with.

The Good, the Bad and the Just Plain Silly…

The Good:

Jeezy, T.I. and Ludacris  joined forces to rally voters in support of Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Jim Martin. Sadly Martin lost the race to Republican Saxby Chambliss (who has the greatest name ever). But it’s nice to see rappers show some continued interest in politics. That’s a good job fellas.

The Bad:

What the hell was Plaxico Burress thinking?! He shot himself in the leg? That’s no way to accrue street cred. Shot himself accidentally in the leg and now he’s suspended for the rest of the season. And Bloomberg is not happy.

That’s bad for Giants fans…

The Just Plain Silly:

Kanye West wants to intern at Louis Vuitton? I’m all for following your dreams but seriously, I can’t imagine Kanye being an intern anywhere. Maybe he will shadow some designers and learn about the business but he will not be doing the grunt work of an intern. That’s just plain silly.

808s and Heartbreak

I have listened to the majority of Kanye’s new album. I was hellbent on hating it. I swear I was. But, I enjoyed it fully. Can’t wait to go and buy it tomorrow. I know that I could have ordered it on the net somewhere but like a true music fiend, I enjoy the occassional trip to the record store. I’ll be back in Houston tomorrow so I can visit my favorite store.

808s and Heartbreak

Can’t wait! Home and Kanye in one day. Should be amazing!

Box Office: Quantum of Solace

Went to dinner and a movie with my girls today. We saw Quantum of Solace. This was my first time actually watching a James Bond movie. I didn’t think that Daniel Craig was James Bond type sexy but he did a really good job. Apparently the first one was better. I wouldn’t know because I have no standard of comparison. With any movie franchise that is as big as this I think that it is really easy to fail to give adequate background info. And if I had to pick a flaw, that would be it. Without my friend whispering in my ear, I would not have understood the relationships that carried over from the first movie.

All in all it was enjoyable. Here’s the trailer.

In other news, the Lakers finally lost a game. Kanye West was arrested again for an incident with a paparazzo. And the Celtics lost. There was a lot going on today.
