    I’d rather hear you get at Oprah but I’d agree with this.

  • Incilin

    “Reality favored cheese burgers” — Nice. This aint bad, altho I’d prefer to read this than have to look at this guys face.

  • these posts are racist

    So much energy criticizing rappers…Poverty and racism have been so destructive to certain communities for hundreds of years. Can we have a townhall meeting addressing these real issues?

    “When a poet calls you a bitch or a ho, he’s doing it to give you freedom. Their misogyny is empowering.”

    Classic! Nice work Jay. :-)

    Good post. Hip hip is very sexist however I think the bigger problem is drugs. Oprah should’ve done a whole show on how alot of rappers are basically saying to our kids that selling drugs will get u the baddest chick, the freshest cloughs, and the hottest cars.

    Jay Smooth is very intelligent. I suggest a massive boycott like calling out of Russell Simmons’ yoga practicin ass. He is the farthest from Street Hop and he always makin us look bad by defendin it.

    Jay Smooth, you’re a well-spoken idiot. I believe Russell is an opportunist and his defense does have holes in it, but there’s nothing wrong with calling MC’s poets. What’s the problem in that tag?

  • http://www.illdoctrine.com Jay Smooth

    Malik: I’ll get to Oprah’s end of things next week. Gotta make sure I have a safe house ready, in case I need to hide out from the Black Crusaders..

    Huey: I never said there was anything wrong with calling emcees poets, in and of itself. But thanks for the compliment nonetheless..

    Jay Smooth’s the truth.

    “Anyone on a ‘video blog’ deserves to by lynched.”

    I would’ve said the same thing, but Jay actually makes coherent vlog posts, and isn’t just on some self-aggrandizing rant to get his grill up on youtube (well i assume he isn’t). intelligent and entertaining.

    mmmm…reality-flavored cheeseburgers….

  • kingburns

    What’s up with the editing on this video. It feels like I’m high on that cheese heroine with all the colors fading in and out. Good blog (vlog?) but the editing is terrible.

  • 1,2..1,2 it don’t stop81

    SOOO YOU SAYIN THAT HOODS DON’T EXIST? AND CRACK ISN’T RAMPANT IN MOST BLACK COMMUNITIES?AND THERE AREN’T MORALLY ENEPT BIRDS IN THE HOOD WILLING TO SPREAD ASS FOR A QUICK BUCK? I THINK YOU NEED TO FIGURE REALITY FROM THE OTHER SIDE BEFORE YOU JUDGE IT. JUST CUZ’ YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T MEAN IT DON’T HAPPEN.I CAN’T STAND JEEZY’S MUSIC OR THE CAPO’S BUT THERE IS A REASON BEHIND IT,YES THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR BUT ALSO BECAUSE IT’S A REALITY. GO FIND SOME HOOD FIRST THEN BLOG HOMEY.

    Cuz most these assholes makin’ records these days are as far from emcees/poets as you can possibly get! Defending Jeezy by saying he’s a “poet” is like defending Superhead by saying she’s an “author.”

    Very entertaining. I like the the analyzation of how the young Geezy’s and such are repacking Gangsta rap and selling it….that is true…as much as those artists are wack…sorry
