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?


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.


Song of the Moment: “Swagger Like Us”

T.I. ft. Kanye West, Jay Z, and Lil Wayne

I found it on Kanye’s Blog. I got so excited when I saw the post….then I listened to the song. I have all kinds of love for Kanye, Jay Z and T.I. and I guess I tolerate Lil’ Wayne. But, this was a miss for me. It might have hit without the auto-tune vocoder shit but Weezy just WON’T stop with that ish and Kanye seems to have seriously joined the bandwagon.

If there was no autotune on this track, it would have hit for real because they all have hot lines in their verses. But that vocoder ish is the devil. T.I. and Jay Z seem to have taken this seriously while Kanye and Weezy…pulled a Cher with the vocoder crap. But the more I listen…the better it sounds. I just can’t condone the vocoder/auto-tune in hip hop.

Just one Black woman’s opinion.

The Best of the Rest
