A Name I Call Myself

“They call me the modern day LL Cool J.”—Bow Wow

I was a lil under the weather today so I chilled at the crib and caught some TRL. Didn’t know the show still even existed since I thought MTV just pretty much runs America’s Next Top Model reruns all day. Plus like you button-pushers I pretty much catch all the videos first on the Internets. Anyway, some teeny bop shit popped up on my screen with some fake Pussy Cat Doll looking mini-chick named Paula DeAnda trying to bring sexy back.

Now I’m no R Kelly, but I took a few to see what shortie was all about. Plus the track had a lil boom bap to it. Next thing you know, lil’ Bow Weezy pops up in his freshest white T and kicks some rhyme with the world lame and extends his fingers L shaped—kinda like the way James Todd Smith does. Then the young cocky bastard delivers the quote from above about he’s the modern day LL Cool J.

What is this, the new trend to shit on rap legends? First we had all that new Preemo shit, now this? I know in these guys twisted minds they feel they’re paying homage but truth is truth: No OG rap veteran wants some new generation rapper and/or producer of the day claiming to be the new version of them. Respect this hustle? Naw niggas. Respect the rap legends.

What’s next “I’m what Kool G Rap was in his prime.” (Wait didn’t Jay or The Game say that once?) “He’s the incarnation of Big Daddy Kane.” “I’m the resurrection of Big Pun.” It’s gotta stop, people. There was never a new Michael Jordan in basketball and these hip-hoppers of today need to worry about carving out their own niches. Leave the comparisons to us journalists and the boisterous bloggers. Like Whodini and Millie Jackson once advised, “Be yourself.”

P.S. The song was actually produced by Danja and this is a remix. The original version featured Mr. Guest Appearance himself, Lil Wayne on rap vocals. Guess Weezy isn’t giving everyone single’s rights. Funny that the fake Weezy would follow in Mr. Carter’s footsteps since he jacks his flow on another teeny bop train wreck, B5’s “Hydrolics.” Are you bored or confused yet? Like I give a shit.

  • Christian Prz.

    Me, I’m personally confused over what kind of ‘shots’ really took place over there.

    And yeah, I left out the ‘no homo’ for a reason. Go figure. Or eat kellogs.

    A Random 40 bar verse (I sound like Donny Goines on the come up))

    If you could understand why sometimes Im frus-trated
    I truly love Hip Hop, these rappers just date it
    Walking thin lines, please tell me whats sacred
    Commercial artists build careers, Me- just patience

    Meanwhile my catalog grows, full of substance
    While empty metaphors and similies fool da public
    Dazzled by the limelights, record pools of dumb shit
    Drowning in this game, I wonder how you could want this

    Read close- you can see the message in my bars
    Not political- but I teach lessons in my songs
    Watch the videos, most of em impressing you wit cars
    -Are just paid endorsers, its checks in da garage

    Ands not that im aganist all the money and fame
    Cause I been getting fly, blew money on chains
    Fucked a whole lotta women, fly honeys and dames
    Called em Dawn of the Dead, they were hungry for brains

    But my punch-lines, not con-fined, ta young guys, with dumb minds
    I touch lives, with such pride, no sur-prise, Im just wise
    Saw rough times, too much crimes, enough lies, the tough die
    I was high, from stuffed dimes, and drunk wine, so much I

    -Was sent ta A-A, my family they prayed
    I wouldnt be a Lil John O-K-K-K-AY
    See thats my real father, he doing 8 years
    State tier, so theres one thing I gotta make clear

    These devils plauge my mind- so when I say my lines
    -You can see my soul, deep within Satan’s eyes
    So in my greatest rhymes, you can tell I bare all
    There raw, just so I can show em what I stand for

    Respect and honor, much respect to Donna
    My momma taught me do wrong, you can expect the karma
    Music ll kill ya — just check Nirvana
    And Disco D, lord the Shit so deep

    But these fuckers wanna talk about parties and rockstars
    Only problem with that- Donny is not ya’ll
    Plus Im not fix-ated, on this hatred
    I laugh behind they back cuase they shit’s a bit basic

    And mines too advance, now you guys blew ya chance
    Fuckin one hit wonders wonder why, do ya dance
    But me Im consistant, so when I use my chance
    I’ma Crack in ya hood like I supplied you wit grams (Motherfucker)

  • Your God

    Yeah rappers need to show more respect to legends but this statment is ironic coming from the magazine that puts a shirtless Birdman and Lil’ Wayne on their 10th anniversary cover.

    what does that have to do with anything? wheres the irony? yall niggas are real faggots. the covers dope. cant wait to read mine when it comes.

  • DANJA29

    Damn Purple Hulk, get off the man’s dick. SURELY you have something to do besides leave multiple comments on the man’s blog questioning him like you’re his wife or somethin’.

    Oh, and Canibus won that battle, but people still gave a damn about LL after ’98.

    Anyway… maybe that’s the problem. Rap niggas are so busy name-checking the older great MC’s, but takin’ no time to perhaps learn from their music. It’s just a cool thing to say now to make themselves seem like they are ANYWHERE NEAR legend status. Case in point: Bow Wow. Nobody wants to draw inspiration from artists of the past, they just wanna steal their lines and compare themselves to them.

    And forget about becoming the first versions of themselves- clearly that’s not a goal at all. Clearly.

  • Purple Hulk

    DANJA, YOU STFU, SERIOUSLY, HE SAID HED POST 24 BLOGS IN 24 HOURS, IM SUPRISED MORE PEOPLE AINT DEMANDING THE DAMN TRUTH. PLUS IT WAS A GAY COVER, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT.

  • T.R.E.Y.

    Just Blaze is the new-and-improved Premo.

  • Wez

    Yeah hearin me rap is like hearin G. Rap in his prime line was from Jay…Encore of The Black Album. You probably thought that Bitch-Boy The Game said it cuz he’s a name-dropping motherfucker. Legends (Jay) can call out Legends!!

    Sorry dude, you cant write this blog after that cover. We’re all hypocritical humans, but that cover was just a bad call. I hope you guys make up for it with some solid covers for a couple of months before you go back to the magazine-selling garbage covers.

    But like I say many times, wtf do I know.

  • http://hhfanatic.blogspot.com HHFanatic

    damn, wrong link

  • Were Read 2 Def

    Respect rap legends

  • Cinsere

    Meanwhile…Wayne is on your cover…again…basking in all his “I’m better than Jay-Z” glory. You make no sense.

  • Dr Flav

    Why wont you all let that man’s sack go, regarding who he puts on the cover of HIS MAGAZINE! Bre bre said days ago that its Cash Moneys anniversary also and my mind not fixed on gay shit all day, since its not like they was butt fucking on the cover, they was stuntin tattoos and chains. The bitch gonna sell because dude aint worrying about internet whiners, who the ones talkin the most shit, but wasnt going to buy it if had a fifty percent off coupon on it. Aint no rapper ever done it like LL still doing it, dude made Bis look like a child. Jay Z said that G Rap line on the Black Album.

  • Around and Around

    it’s because these wack ass kids have nothing to say.

  • Cruxofit

    pretty brilliant

  • N.O. 4 life

  • Cuban Link

    @ Danja29, no, LL won.Every personal Canibus threw at him he found a way to flip it and make it look like a personal at him.Canibus threw some fire at him, but LL flipped his shit and KOd Bis.
