2008 Mid-Year Awards
And The Winner Is…
Dead or alive, hip-hop has sure been eventful these past six months.
Lil Wayne sold “A Milli,” Young Buck was booted out of G-Unit, R. Kelly allegedly didn’t do it and Young Jeezy was cloned at least twice. Here, XXLMag.com honors some of the best, worst, odd, repulsive and absurd events to date in 2008.
*Best oversaturated and arguably overrated rapper with a drug habit to survive kissing a man (not his daddy) on the mouth, not take 50 Cent’s bait, spitefully get leaked by DJs and still sell a million copies in one week: Lil Wayne
*Best Young Jeezy Song Not Performed By Young Jeezy: Rocko’s “Umma Do Me” by an adlib over Shawy Lo’s “Dey Know”
*Best Game Impersonation: Young Buck…They just get so confused.
*Should You Be Too Busy To Be Doing This Bullshit Award: Diddy Blog, Bitches! Diddy Blog!
*The No-Bitch-Assness Award: Tony Yayo… Even kids can get it, if you have a good lawyer.
*The Eli Porter “I Deed It” Award: R.Kelly = O.J. 3000, Sam Adams Jr. = Johnnie Cochran 2.0
*I Think My Water Broke Award: Rick Ross’ Belly…He got some nerve.
*The Now-You-See-It-Now-You-Don’t Award: Nas, or un-rapper
*The Can’t Get Right Award: DMX… Dark Man gets arrested more than Lil Wayne gets downloaded. And just weeks before he’s due in court on multiple charges in Arizona. What does X do? He gets knocked in Florida. Will he ever see the light? —XXL Staff
