Yo, MTV sucks

As I was telling my old man yesterday, over a case of Mich Ultra (better than I remembered it!), I recently had to give up watching MTV’s the Real World after having spent literally most of my life watching it.

The shit hadn’t been quite right since the Hawaii season, in 1999, but this most recent season, in Key West, managed to take the series to a whole new level of teh gheyness. I wonder if even the newer generation of fans who picked up on the show during its fabled Las Vegas season could even be made to give a shit at this point.

As such, I basically never watch MTV anymore, but I figured I’d better put this year’s VMAs on in the background on the outside chance anything happened. After all, I watched last year, right as Hurricane Katrina was poised to strike, and all kinds of shit was popping off. Jigs were getting shot, dissing each other from the stage. It was anarchy.

Come to find out, hardly anything worthwhile happened all evening. If it wasn’t for new best band evar the Killers, who kinda rocked it right there at the end, the show would’ve been almost entirely not worth watching. And besides the over-all shitty nature of the presentation and the performances, I noticed something else that struck me as fairly bothersome.

If you notice, Thursday night’s show must have had the heaviest rock presence of any VMA’s since the early ’90s. Jack Black who’s still working that same Tenacious D schtick from 1998 hosted; Jack White’s Raconteurs, who really don’t do it for me at all, played the house band for the evening; and Panic! at the Disco seemed to take all of the big awards.

Nothing against rock (I saw the Gin Blossoms again this weekend), but I wonder if this is as much a matter of rock making a genuine comeback as it is a matter of the network purposely attempting to distance itself from hip-hop. Now that hip-hop has entered a period of definite commercial decline, I wouldn’t be surprised if MTV decided to turn its back on it.

To be sure, there was a certain amount of hip-hop on display, but it seemed like the least amount they could possibly get away with. After all, they had to give the best rap video award to an actual rapper. But if you notice, they gave the best hip-hop video award to the motherfucking Black Eyed Peas, which is just wrong on so many levels.

Hype Williams was presented with one of those dumbass video vanguard awards, which struck me more so as MTV closing the book on the era of hip-hop videos being prominently featured on the network than any genuine acknowledgment of his contribution to the form. Otherwise, why even trot his irrelevant ass out in the first place?

  • Too Chi

    Yea I gotta agree, MTV is been fallin’ off for a nice lil’ minute now, and I think they may have finally hit rock bottom.

    p.s. 1st I guess, but who gives a fuck.

    Ive really never wactheed an awards show on MTV or any other station but if I did I would expect stupidty like that and would wacth it strictly for entertainment purposes only.

  • Dee

    MTV is trying to stay away from hip hop?

    What about Sucker Free Videos?
    What about MTV JAMS
    What about VH1 Soul owned by mtv
    What about MTV HITS! which play rap videos at least as much as pop and rock

  • Dee

    shit MTV JAMS is better than BET by far

  • Belize

    Watchin the VMA’s I realized that:
    Christina can actually sing

    Shakira should be a stripper

    jack Black isnt funny at all

    who the fuck is this mtv6000 nigga…WAS THAT U BOL?

  • Chris Villain

    MTV dont really play any music period…they got more reality series than they do music shows…and when music shows do come on they only play a quarter of the video….it seems to me like they turnin their back on music on the whole…

  • Belize

    Yo why YN got yall niggaz workin on labour day? Yall need a union or sum shit like that..

  • LBDII

    Seems to be true. Hiphop will survive. 07 will be better and o8 legendary.

  • Chris Villain

    and yes Belize is so right….but we arent talking about MTV2 and MTV HITS and JAMZ AND SOUL etc….we’re talking about the Original MTV….i think they turnin they’re back on Music period…soon Sucker Free and TRL is gonna only be coming on MTV 2…and MTV 1 will only consist of reality shows like LAGOONY Beach and and The Hillz and shit

  • http://www.allhiphop.com Rey

    I think I hate MTV more than I hate southern rap, white guys, and DJ Original Name combined. I definitely got the feeling that MTV was sorta humoring rap at the VMAs. The fucking Black Eyed Penis’ should be beaten in an alley by the Wu Tang Clan–no ashton valderamma. The Killers were cool, but Panic at the Disco are the living embodiment of the term ‘faggit ass niggas’. I’d go on, but I don’t wanna give myself an ulcer. Oh yeah, I finally heard Chicken Noodle Soup. The song itself didn’t seem so bad but the dance have me seizures. The Genius, Steve Smith, Ron Darling, Ike Hilliard, Tone Loc. RIP, CROC HUNTER!

  • pop a poppa

    who cares if MTV plays hip-hop or not?
    just as long as they don’t cancel My Super Sweet 16 i will be happy

  • UnFaded Disciple

    VMA’s sucked balls. Last years when Diddy was hosting it, was the most entertaining VMA’s I ever seen.

  • http://www.allhiphop.com Rey

    4th Quarter 06 is gonna be good. A new The Game album would take me into 07 just fine until Jay and Nas drop. I’m also looking forward to the new Diddy album. I know he doesn’t write or produce ninety percent of his shit, but it’ll still be fun. Trent Tucker.

  • Dr. Colossus

    Rap sucks now a days, it all sounds the same, that’s why no one is buying it.

  • http://www.allhiphop.com Rey

    My Super Sweet 16 is the television show equivalent of ‘My Humps’. The last good VMAs they had was 2002. Last year’s had a bit of Source Awards drama to it, but it was still kinda ehh.

  • 5 STAR X-E-Q-SHUN

    MTV sucks
    BEP winning a hip hop award = complete joke

  • Belize

    Yall gotta look at the big picture
    BEt & MTV= owned by same company
    If both play the same shit it would be a waste of a channel so…

    MTV=White kids
    VHI= old fukin senine fuks
    BET=everybody else

    …ohhh by the way MTV is startin a latino station in winter..so that means more diversity

  • Belize

    Fuck Diddy..pimple ass bitch

  • UnFaded Disciple

    Latino station? Does that mean more Reggaeton? No bueno.

  • UnFaded Disciple

    Laguna Beach, should die in a horrible tradegy. How come every time I see a commercial of them in the streets, not one black person walks by? I mean, I know most of them is poor/middle class, but come on, there gotta be like @ least 3 or 5 black families living there.

    i havent watched mtv for two years because of this shit. hell, i only have a tv so that i can watch netflix and my daughter can get her elmo fix with her little sesame street addicted ass. although i do have to say i used to like the real world (though i too havent watched since vegas), daria, wildboyz (no wildboyz), and i think they showed tony hawk’s boom-boom huck jam on there once. music? what fucking music?! even the shit they actually DO play is exactly that, SHIT. (nodding yes to myself).

  • http://xxlmag.com Bol

    I thought about taking the day off, but I didn’t get a chance to write about the VMAs Friday because there were some more pressing issues that needed to be addressed.

  • http://www.allhiphop.com Rey

    Laguna Beach should also be beaten by the Wu Tang Clan. I can’t believe people watch that shit. I saw twenty minutes of it and had to be talked out of suicide. Sad part is, folks in towns around where I live act like that. Buncha vacuous crackers acting like the world is a joke. Tell you what though, the rap game is just as fucked up. Shit’s like one of those clique-ass high schools on tv. Fuckin’ She’s All That and what not.

    Don’t fault MTV, hip-hop just ain’t selling cause most of it ain’t good right now. Shit, I’d do the same if I were in charge.

  • ..

    how many hip hop fans actually watch the vmas, i mean common its been pretty poor for a long time and we knew this one would be even worse.

    The people that actually watch it like rock music so they gonna show rock bands init.

  • H-LO

    Yo Bol, in most of your Blogs you complain about 2006 being a bad year for hip-hop so far, and now you wonder why they don’t have to offer anything better than “My Humps” for the award-show? And keep in mind that they are honoring the lady-lumps and not this ciara-wanna-be-mess. If you turn the sound off you can use it for example as replacement for the Nelly Furtado MySpace-Page (see previous entry)when going to bed.

    And keep in mind that hope lies ahead for the second half of 2006: “It only gets stronger, it only gets more intense” (Puffy Freestyle)

  • e

    Shakira’s performance was ill the songs sucks but damn. Same with Beyonce and Christina. Black eyed peas winning any award is a complete joke. Did anyone else find Dj Drama’s introduction of T.I hilarious. (no lead singer of afi)

    on another note MTV doesnt even play videos they should called it TTV teen TV becuase all they show iz reality shows 4 teens THEY DONT EVEN PLAY MUSIC they dont even play rock. hip hop iz da 1 choice for teens not rock & roll

    MTV does have an ass load of reality shows they are the KING of that shit because everytime u turn around its some other dumb ass reality show about the same shit. (Laguna Beach, Sweet 16, Two-A-Days, Real World; which by the way has fallen the hell off) Hip hop on that station is running a lil scarce, but hell that aint the station for hip hop BET is that. You don’t see Trevor from Beverly Hills saying oh well hell I’m shocked and appauled that BET doesn’t play our music. We all know we only get so much even if it is the “New Millenium” still feel like the old one to me. Hip Hop will never die; man no, but MTV isnt going to give you the same feel for it as BET. Not knocking MTV, but hell it has never really been “our” station nor VH1. I watch all of the stations, but BET keeps me posted on waht’s hip,fresh to def, and off the chain. MTV can’t and never will be able to do that. This ain’t Sway, but I’m saying peace. Hit me up http://www.myspace.com/zozo2

    MTV is the the New Media Music Pimp. The Love to force feed their viewers Sh*tty Ass videos by garage band suckers who have even less talent than D4L. MTV used to be on the cutting edge (at least in their minds) but now with the internet their relevance keeps diminishing. MTV is more concerned with putting out more Crappy ass Reality shows with unrealistic representations of the youth of today (ex. How Many Fat people do you See on MTV?). Cosmopolitan Music Television is looking for a new trendy nigga to pimp until he becomes boring (ex 50, Ja Rule, Hammer, Snoop). Do they have an Anti Hip Hop Agenda? This might come as a shock but there used to be a show called Yo! MTV Raps and when this little show seemed irrelevant MTV moved it to their Late night Programming and then all and out cancelled it. Fast Forward 5-10 Years later, they pull out shitty ass Direct Effect with Tech from the Real World Hawaii like this was some new shit & a decent replacement for Yo!. MTV MF SUCKS and it’s a juggernaut that breaks safe/dull ass artist with no balls and silents acts they find no longer appealling (ex De La Soul as of recent years). They Love to pump fake gangsta rappers into the veins of their viewers like some Low grade heroin but turn a blind eye to damn near anybody else. If you’re not on the Major Rap Labels – Good Luck! Because MTV Doesn’t want you. They will keep feeding their teenage brain dead audience more Jay-Z, Kanye, 50, Nelly, Diddy and any other safe act they can find. F*Ck MTV.

  • DCMadeMan

    Come on now Bol, A real Hip hop head would know that MTV was never about hip hop in the first place.

    MTV IS ALL ABOUT REALITY SHOWS- IF YOU ARE A RAPPER AND THE WHITE KIDS ARE NOT BUMPING YOUR MUSIC YOU GET NO LOVE FROM MTV- AND YEAH, THE VMAS WAS THE WORST AWARD SHOW EVER

  • Mr.Me

  • T-Boye, Boy!!

    Yo, Bol you are right MTV straying away from Hip-Hop& Rock altogether for it’s bull **t reality shows( “Lagoo-goo Beach”, “Count Nick Cannon Out”, “Pimp My Hide”) , while BET we be nigger-central. Mind you bet& mtv are own by the conglomerate Viacom. Which is own by Sumner Redstone. A “white” texan oil barron. He broke off the film production deal with Tom Cruise because Tom-Tom was just acting too crazy for the white establishment. Go Figure

    Corporate America/Government are trying to sabotoge Hip Hop.. They can’t track this hustle..

    If hip hop is in decline… where is all the money going? What they spending it on now?

    I think that hip hop ain’t selling due to downloading….the hip hop community is notorious for downloading and bootlegging, i mean, how the fuck is hip hop falling off, when it’s pretty much the most dominant aspect of pop culture…
    Niggas like Bol (aka Punky Blogster) might be listening to Nelly Fucktardo and what not, but the rest of the world has a hip hop influenced soundtrack

    the mtv awards sucked this year. it made k-fed’s performance at the teen choice awards seem more worthwhile. and i think 99.9% of those who viewed that lame ass shit thought it was fucking horrible. that really sums up the mtv awards. we need diddy as host and fat joe and 50 goin at it again. now thats a real award show. amen!

  • anti rap/ REAL HIPHOP

    First off, I would like to state for the record Black Eyed Peas is more Hip-Hop than the bullshit you hear on the radio. Secondly; Hip-Hop is getting stronger everyday, rap is falling off. It is a huge difference and the sooner ya’ll recognize the better off we will all be.

  • SUPERMAN

    fuck hip hop. that shit aint rap. just a bunch of southern clownS fuckin leanin back and forth like they got shit in their pants. rap is real. no phoneys. nas, jadakiss, banks, jay-z, papoose. thats real shit. fuck mtv and fuck you ANTIRAP.
    ps. the black eyed peas aint even hip hop. they’re pop/rock. how the fuck does “my humps” classify as hip hop?

  • Young Harlem

    Why does all your articles describe something as “gheyness”, weed-carrier, or something else to bellitle something, I think you might be a flame, I know your insecure cause you got them bum a..s glasses on. But you might need to change up your word game its getting tiresome.

    I love rap and hip-hop. HOWEVER! what MTV plays is garbage rap/hip-hop.

    Quality over quantity anyday!

    what ever happened to the rap videos that had a THEME, an artistic purpose?
    how many times can one watch some thick assed ho shakin her self all in your face, before you get sick of it?
    and i swear they must use the same damn gold shorts in every video, should call them ‘ho-me-downs’…ugh!
    i remember the older videos…when it was just a rapper and his mic! it was about the MUSIC, not the ass, or the bling or that shit they are wearing on their damn teeth! *i wonder how many homes that BULLSHIT bling would help repair down in New Orleans!*
    and i remember the videos like Busta Rhymes would put out. wasn’t that just a few years ago? the colors, the tripped out dancing and camera angels. his music was art, but so were his videos; artistic. what the HELL is artistic about some bitch shakin her ass in your face? or is that just a bunch of lame as fuckers tryin TOO hard to act gansta?
    the only thing ive seen in the way of artistic these days was the video that Kanye West did w/Pam Anderson. His Evil Knievel spoof “Touch the Sky”. (although Kanye has done his fair share of BULLSHIT rap videos..but i think that’s cause he loves himself),this video was a true artstic accomplishment.

    as for MTV…Fukk ‘em! they play too much of that reality show Bullshit. it should be RTV (reality TV)..but there already is one.

    or maybe they should just rename the channel altogether. MTV’sBS Hour. i think that has a nice ring to it!

  • BIGNAT

    MAN BOL WTF YOU TALKING ABOUT HOMIE THAT BEYONCE PERFORMACE WAS GOOD EVERYTHING ELSE……. WELL…… WELL FUCKING SUCKED LETS BE REAL I THOUGHT LAST YEARS WAS BAD THIS YEARS WAS EVEN WORSE. NEXT YEARS I WANT A WOMEN TO HOST SO IF IT’S BORING AT LEAST WE CAN SEE SOME HOT ASS MOST OF THE NIGHT

    Mtv plays the crappy rap. Underground classic rap like NWA, beastie boys, Wu Tang Clan, ice cube, fort minor, nas, lupe fiasco, styles of beyond and run dmc were great. Rappers like The Game, Mike Jones, Black Eyed Peas, D4L, Dem Franchize Boys, e-40, youngbloodz, lil jon, julez santana and those lame rappers should take rnb like chris brown and regayton with them. Only chamillionaire, paul wall, jay z, and eminem were cool. Mtv plays some good rock but not the same as Panic! at the disco, fall out fagz, and my chemical romance are there. Korn, slipknot, papa roach, metallica, slayer, pantera, linkin park, avenged sevenfold, system of a down, distubred, godsmack, blink 182 and those bands are rarely ever played anymore since “emo” and “candy rap” began
