Hip Hop Honors the South

I watched the Vh1 Hip Hop Honors The Dirty South last night. I have to admit I didnt change the channel I enjoyed the show. I wanted to see Outkast perform but at least they have a new single out "Looking For Ya" that will be on Big Boi's solo album. Bow Wow did a good job and it was nice to see Diddy and Game show up to perform. Timbaland kept saying things like "Im too big for the box of hip hop or pop im too big I will bust out of that. Im full of all that." The fat jokes had to pop into the head of everyone in the audience because they all started giggling like schoolgirls. Lil Romeo shouted out Vince Young and Chris Johnson during his No Limit tribute set so you know I loved that.

Cool Breeze performed last night and I can remember his first album was a real southern classic. Chris Rock was on MTV buying(pretending to steal) a CD a few years ago and when he got in the car it was the clean version so he took it back. That is what I did the first time I bought the Cool Breeze album but it turns out he just didnt curse alot on it. Artists can be creative and Cool Breeze chose to focus more on lyrics than profanity and trying to sound hard. When you hear it just remember what year it came out and how new alot of the slang on there was. Most people didnt start saying those words until they heard that album but Atlanta was already talking like that for years before. Xxlmag listed videos that were based on movies and Cool breeze and the Dungeon Family made it on with "Watch for the Hook" based on Reservoir Dogs. The article mentioned that the Dungeon Family has a catalog that could hang with the Wu Tangs catalog and when you include everyone like Killer Mike and Goodie Mob I have to agree its a legit argument.

Slim Thug is in hot water for comments he made about black women being materialistic. I put the link below and he also talked about black men needing to prioritize and not spend all their money on rims when they have bills to pay. The mistake Slim made was saying anything negative about women in public, period because you cannot win and you will not win that argument. The second mistake he made was in about 5 paragraphs he only spent 2 sentences on men so it was uneven and made it look like woman bashing. Thug made valid points but you have to wait for one of those lame Tavis Smiley"Black men are no good especially that Obama who wouldnt comeback on my show"debates. Tavis and Michael Eric Dyson have these debates like once a month were single women will blame every problem in their life on all men. Luckily I have never been bored enough or brain damaged enough to watch any of them.


The new argument made against paying Chris Johnson is that he will have less yards and never rush for another 2000 yards.REALLY? He wont rush for 2000 yards again you have to be kidding me? Only 6 men have ever done it and you want this man to do it every year just to earn a raise that you will never pay him. The titans would rather have Cj get hurt or cut him instead of having to pay him the money he has earned. Kobe Bryant has to score 81 every game to earn his contract and Tom Brady has to throw 48 touchdowns every season to earn his contract too right? This is so stupid you can be the best player at your position or even in the league and not have to win the championship or break records to do it. The titans need to stop pinching pennies and CJ what he is worth.

The powerball is 28 million and the megamillions is 26 million. Ohio Won the 261 million powerball jackpot so congratulations to the buckeye who snagged the quarter of a billion jackpot.
