Proper Education

Chamillionaire “Ridin” is the number one song in the country and Yung Joc “It’s Goin’ Down” is the number one song on the Black People charts. Yeah we can’t sell any albums since T.I. but hip-hop isn’t dead. Sorry Esco(1).

“The Mighty O.” Produced by Organized Noize! C’mon kids, the proof is in the pudding. Yup, this is one of those in-the-vaults joints that I told y’all ‘Kast had stored. The brand plays on!

Chingy(2) has a new song featuring Tyrese(3) and produced by Jermaine Dupri(4). I haven’t heard it but think we can safely make the assumption that it sucks. Wonder what J Prince feels about shawty callin’ his label Slot-a-Lot(5) Records

I thought this Lil Jon “Snap Yo Fingers” shit was a brick. In fact, it’s huge. I need to get a satellite radio(6) ’cause it ain’t gettin’ no burn in the Tri-Sate. I thought we was ridin’ the South’s dick? (I’m too old for no homo. And nullus is gay.)

Guess Field Mob lucked out gettin’ Ciara(7) on their single. Pop radio loves her ass.

Mary J. really insists on creditin’ her rappin’ alter ego Brook-lyn(8). Cor-ny. That’s some wack-ass Arsenio Hall/Chunky A shit.

Who’s playing Paul Wall’s Chi-Lites swagger-jack “Girl’? This reminds me of that old Special Ed(9) rhyme “Can’t taste the juice ’cause I got the Motts/I heard you paid for your Billboard spots.” I see you, Atlantic. Allegedly, of course.

“Shoulder Lean” is creepin’ up the charts. Go Young Dro!

36′s “Poppin’ My Collar” is certified gold. I thought “Stay Fly” was the big hit.

Dem Franchize Boyz’s “Ridin Rims” is produced by Young Juve. Does Juvenile(10) have a son that’ll put E-40 seed’s beats to shame?

Gucci Mane “Go Ahead”? Is that from the last album? Who’s still supportin’ Gucci Mane? I don’t even know if the nigga’s free or in jail.

I need to brush up on my rap-cameo/R&B songs: Scoundrel Squad(11) featuring Bun-B (“Sister”); Cherish featuring Sean Paul of the Youngbloodz (“Do it To It”); and Megan Rochell featuring Fabolous (“The One You Need”).

Lil Wayne’s “Hustler Musik” probably wasn’t the right single choice. He would have faired better with “Money On My Mind.” Or he could’ve have just dropped that Alan Thicke(12) joint. Hey Weezy, just cause you sell that doesn’t make you a sell out. I’m out.

Go get your footnotes. Go get your footnotes(13):
(1) I love when Eskay sons the Nas stans. That’s edutainment!
(2) This kid resides in Denial Land.
(3) Baby boy needs to battle Nick Cannon for Rap Impasta of the year!
(4) Wonder if dude is feelin’ his honey bun flashin’ her belly all up in the gossip rags?
(5) Not from Vegas but I slot a lot…
(6) Sirius, holla at da bossman. We only did a mag together.
(7) I’m sure every rapper is stalking her now that she put the little dog to sleep.
(8) Ain’t Mrs. Isaacs from Money Earnin’ Mount Vernon? What gives?
(9) Boy did that guy not age well.
(10) Reality Check really came and went. Even Nessa Satten ain’t bumpin’ that music.
(11) I’m just assuming their singers with a name like that.
(12) I mean his son. You know, Pharrell’s buddy.
(13) I heard exo is the architect of this style.

    >Who’s playing Paul Wall’s Chi-Lites swagger-jack “Girl’?

    I was in Vegas a few weeks ago and in 2 days I heard that sh*t about 1000 times.

  • P-Matik

    It aint gettin’ no burn in DC either.

  • Nick Chainy

    people fucks with Gucci Mane, brah

  • eskay

    >>Ain’t Mrs. Isaacs from Money Earnin’ Mount Vernon?

    No, actually she’s a proud former resident of the Schlobaum Houses in my hometown of Yonkers.

  • da bossman

    Yonkers, of course. Duh! A rare mistake for the rap mag kingpin. It’s been a long day.

    Snap Yo Fingaz is all over Hot 97…

  • choitotheworld

    Oh man, you’re having so much fun with the blog format. The warscribe-style addendums are scary.
    Please don’t start doing all that e-humor with the cross outs and url yuk yuks though cause then I really won’t be able to tell ya’ll apart.

  • Belize

    people really dont feel gucci mane bruh

  • fresh

    Gucci Mane had a “show” about two weeks ago down here. It was okay to say the least. I could barely see that nigga though.

    There are some d-boys and guhls who still fuck with Gucci. I personally don’t. The only reason I even bothered going was because I wanted to down some free drinks. Ladies first…

  • khal

    damn that list is mad reasons why I don’t listen to the radio.

  • I Am A Hater

    Elliot Wilson is definitely writing some entertaining shit on the real.

    p.s. FUCK CHINGY!

  • Mikey Ess AKA SukedowN

    Mr W.F. Baby realy should have released the joint with Kurupt (I see you, DP reunion) Lock & Load, the hottest track on the album.

  • Mikey Ess AKA SukedowN

    P.S. Even with a “hot” feat. single pop princess Ciara, Field Mob will still never get the love they deserve.

    (Top 3 slept on rap group of all time)

  • alleyeCNtower

    honestly… out of all these groups: who will be around next year?

    if that’s our future, shit is uglier than Craig Mack during puberty


  • youngdelta

    Damn E-DUB u couldn’t wait to get another excuse to put an interscope artist on ur cover again!!!!!!! and ur talkin bout radio! E-DUB= Interscope slut monkey!!! ha ha ha shout out to benzino! HA HA hA HA HA

  • john cochran

    I agree with that weezy comment. He had alot of other bangers to choose from other than Hustler musik.

  • lone Nigerian

    first of all Snap yo Fingaz is old in the south. They’ve been playing it in Texas since the end of ’05, seriously. they’ve probably been playing it in the ATL since July.
    I thought it was going to be another Lovers and Friends and get no video love.

    second of all I love Hustler’s Muzik. don’t know if that’s any consolation for it being not that marketable of a single.

  • Quita P

    This nigga is a hater.But he gotsome points though.And y’all slow on southern music Gucci Mane got new shit out but just using this because it go like it was supposed with the last album.Snap yo fingas and shoulder lean been out since the beginning of summer 05′

    You should add some social bookmark buttons to your blog posts. You should at least add one for Digg so we can digg you up!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

  • Senator Carl Kruger

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
