Keep it on the down low

It was 40 years ago today that Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated by the CIA, and what better way to mark the anniversary of the death of the civil rights icon than to cast aspersions on another black man’s sexuality.

No but really, has anyone else been following the shit with this kid SOHH Gyant? I don’t follow the blogs over at SOHH too closely, just because I don’t think they’re very good. I know blogs are extensions of people, and thus it’s somewhat Hitler-esque to suggest that some blogs are better than other ones, but… well, that’s my opinion.

It just seems like, more often than not, they stick the names of some celebrities into the titles of their posts to hook you into reading them, and then when you do, it’s just a bunch of bullshit they probably read at Media Take Out or somewhere. And maybe a YouTube video.

Otherwise, they seem like nice enough people, and I don’t have anything against them. If I felt like the information was especially good, I’m sure I’d even head over there more often to “borrow” ideas for posts. Like Noz does over at okayhater.

I was over there the other day conducting some research for my post that ended up dying in its infancy, as if it was James Brown’s twin brother (or was that Elvis that had the twin brother?), and I came across this video that was supposed to be of Bun B going at some bloggers, as is his wont.

I figured it might be another one of these videos where he was going at me, like that Shocking Online Moments video where they went around and asked various artists what was the craziest thing anyone ever said about them over the Internets. I was mentioned several times in that one.

And I’m not gonna lie, I still think about Cassie’s appearance in that video some nights before I go to sleep. She couldn’t even bring herself to say what she’d read about herself online, but I think we all know what it was. What a delicate flower of a woman.

But as it turns out, this clip was of Bun going at this kid SOHH Gyant, whom I guess somehow managed to run afoul of the lcd rap legend.

If only he’d waited a few days later to make his remarks, or done some research on this kid beforehand, like I’m sure he does with his stock portfolio.

When I had my own initial run-in with Bun B, he was all ordering me to shovr things in my ass, as if I was some kind of fudge. Meanwhile, I think we can all agree that I’m one of the straightest guys there ever was. (Ladies, feel free to call my bluff.) This kid Gyant, meanwhile, might actually be on the DL.

Now, it’s at this point in the post that I’d like to note that I don’t know this kid Gyant from Adam, though I am friends with him on Facebook (nhjic), and that it could very well be the case that he’s not a DL pillow biter, and this is just some shit people made up because they were upset with him.

God forbid one of the girls in management should have to hit the kill switch on one of my posts for the second Friday in a row.

Intrigued (nullus), I checked out a couple of the guy’s posts. I’d say the content was roughly par for the course as far as SOHH is concerned, but it was the comments section that struck me. Comment after comment consisted of mofos telling this kid Gyant how he’d just gotten ethered.

It was like deja vu… except they were also suggesting that he was a fudge.

So I did some research, and it turns out he may or may not have been arrested for violating a restraining order that had been taken out against him by showing up to a house party thrown by some DL brothers. The guy who took out out the order was supposedly an ex-lover of his and called the cops when he arrived.

Supposedly, this had all been revealed in some police documents someone had dug up and posted to the comments section of his blog at SOHH, after people had become suspicious when he up and disappeared for a three days in a row last summer.

(What kind of nutjob just up and disappears from his blog for three days in a row?)

When he returned, he claimed that he had spent three days in jail behind some sort of mix up. He was at this party, and some guy attacked him, and he ended up getting arrested, and the police somehow forgot he was in jail for three days.


I haven’t actually seen the documents myself. I only read about them the other day over at Sandra Rose. She’s been running a series of expose articles on Gyant, I guess because the two of them have been beefing with one another.

If you’ve got that kind of time, you might just want to check both of them in their entirety.

My response to Lloyd Dinwiddie aka Gyant

My response to Lloyd Dinwiddie Pt. 2

I went over both of them myself with a fine-tooth comb, but I can’t actually claim to know what the origin of their beef is. Whatever it is, it escalated recently when Gyant published a post, which has since disappeared from the Internets (noticing a trend), in which her called Sandra Rose a lonely lesbian and fantasized about her receiving a beatdown. Which I believe is what prompted this series of expose articles.

But apparently, the two of them had once been friends and confidants, Golden Girls-steez. He used to provide bodyguard protection for her at events down in the ATL (where all of the trannies live), and she introduced him to some people or whatever.

Now that they’ve had this falling out, it seems clear to me that Sandra Rose has it as her goal to throw this guy under a bus. Take for example the second post in her series, in which she suggests that Gyant may have been involved in leaking a track by a prominent producer. Which could obviously carry with it a certain degree of legal liability.

That said, who knows whether or not any of this shit is true. What do you fruits think? Is this kid Gyant on the DL, or is Sandra Rose making this shit up? Also, would you find a hip-hop blogger that much less credible if you found out he was a closeted teh ghey person, or should his sexuality not matter one way or another?

    I don’t even consider him as a DL brother. B/c at least you can’t really tell DL brothers form normal brothers. Its painfully obvious from his pics and writing style he’s batting for the other team. As a matter of fact I don’t even think he’s pitching, DUDE IS A CATCHER.

    • EReal


      Gayant is a fuckin homo. Real Talk, me and this dude Future ( are the ones that originally found the arrest afidavit and posted it in one of his blogs MONTHS before Sandra Rose went in on him. Then we had Pics from SR with him lookin madd suspect wearin some dusty ass lugz and them silk screened jap anime shirts like mexicans in wal-mart do. We went in on him, because he constantly writes in a homo style, dissin broads the wrong way. We were promptly I.P. Banned from SOHH ATL, not like thats anything we gave a fuck about. The FUNNIEST part of all this is when SR exposes him as writing under the psyduonym “SOHH Streetz” whom we refer to as Skeetz. That is a FEMALE blogger who does the “Ya Hear” or “Gossip / Rumor” blog at SOHH, thats suspect as FUCK, if you’re writing as a girl, chattin it up about gossip under a female name or “character” he posted this big article proclaiming his innocence, and that it wasnt the case, but it was too late because before SR went in, we already exposed him with links to the arrest affidavit and links to his pics.

      SOHH Gyant = Faggot.

    Sohh Gyant says…
    I was their last night Mouth. I’m surpised we didn’t bump into each other. The guys in their were cool. I spoke to a couple of them, and Vawn is the nicest guy. Can’t wait for his album to drop. All the girls were bitches, and dressed like sluts. The DJ was spinning the right jams though. He really put his thing in it.

    April 4, 2008 1:57 PM

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^That’s what Gyant had to say about some party in the ATL last night. Now after reading that you can’t still believe he’s a straight man. I mean it ooses out of him with comments like ‘the guys were cool’, ‘Vawn is the nicest guy’, and ‘He put his thing in it’ YUCK!!! And the all the comments he made about women were negative.

    i didnt know you could legally talk about another site or blogger without using code but im glad you did Bol because this was funny and you have court papers to back it up so you are getting big time on us man not just giving your opinion to us. i do go to that site after i go to this one and it usually is weak except for that caption diss those are funny because people will say anything when they think the celeb will never find them. as far as gyant is concerned i know he is famous for going hard at bow wow every week so i thought he just hated his music but maybe he is mad that bow wow isnt playing for his gay team.

  • og bobby j

    I dont know if the dude plays tummy sticks or not, and I truely dont care. However, I do think the sexual preferences of a blogger could damage their credibility…thus making it difficult to co-sign the thoughts of a ballonknot expander….thats just how I feel.


      TUMMY STICKS??? WTF?!?!?!


  • LastCoonAlive

    Lol @ this whole post

  • Matt Herbz

    Bol, how can you come onto my turf and not even give me a shout out? It is I, the infamous Matt Herbz of The White Nigga Movement (google me). People no longer visit Gyant’s blog to see what Gyant has to say–they visit to see what I and a select few others have to say to Gyant. We’ve been giving Gyant shit since he first started out on that blog. He’s not originally from Atlanta, he doesn’t cover what some would consider the more relevant venues of the Atlanta hip-hop scene, and all of his posts positively ooze closet-homosexuality. (Just like your posts would be like if you didn’t murmur “nullus” after every paragraph.)

    So, this recent beef with Sandra Rose seems to solidify our suspicions that the Gyant one’s gate only swings to the inside if you know what I mean. What’s better than two closet-homosexuals pulling eachother’s cards and “exposing” one another for all of the internet’s enjoyment?

    This does seem to have taken its toll on Gyant seeing as now he has begun to moderate his comment section and delete any post that is off-topic (read: questioning Gyant’s heterosexuality.) See my post about him in the Bangers section: Ludacris “Stay Together.” I thought it was hilarious, but he deleted it anyway.

    Well the dude is definitely a homo. Considering I do nothing all day, I read just about every interesting hip hop blog site there is, and SOHH is on that list. Not only does Gyant blog as himself, but he also blogs on that site as a female, Streetz, the blogger that does the “Ya Heard” blog.

    Now I don’t know about you, but any man that is willing to blog as a female, saying such things and doesn’t he look cute, and he can get it and a bunch of other gay things, is definitely a fanny-pack-wearing, purse-holding Homo.

    Lloyd Dinwiddie? Sounds like his parents did him in early, kind of like a dude named Arsenio.

  • fly on the wall

    (The scene: Justin’s on Peachtree. Enter Matt Herbz. He sees Gyant sitting at a table in the corner finishing a slice of Key Lime pie. Herbz approaches the table.)

    Matt Herbz: “The Fuck you call me here for, nigga?”

    Gyant: “What’s up Matt? Have a seat! How’s it hanging, nigga?”

    Matt Herbz: “Nigga, it don’t hang, it’ll put your mothafuckin eye out…and that’s the last mothafuckin gay-ass question you’re gonna ask me tonight. Hurry the fuck up because I don’t want anyone getting the wrong idea about me and you… Shit would be all over the Atlanta blogs tomorrow and I’m supposed to be retired.”

    Gyant: “Well, Matt… You know, I just went along with that White Nigga thing of yours because I had nothing else. No fans, no readers…no one. I wanted to quit but then I thought “When I quit blogging, what am I gonna do, strip in a club?” My big ass would rip the pole out the ceiling! I don’t know nothing else but gossip, baby–taking it, recycling it, shitting on some other small time bloggers.”

    Herbz: “Yeah, I know how you do, you jive monkey. But that’s you, nigga. I’m different.”

    Gyant: (Takes a sip of his Sex On The Beach and chuckles) “Shit, you know, you’ve got this fantasy in your head about getting outta the blog life and setting that other world on its ear. What the FUCK are you gonna do except blog on my shit, my nigga?”

    Herbz: “Pimp, my nigga. Pimp… I’m gonna be straight pimpin on these hoes…”

    Gyant: (Giggles) “Besides pimpin… You know these hoes today ain’t built for a nigga like you. Now, Matt, I ain’t putting you down. Shit, If it wasn’t for you I probably wouldn’t be here, I’d be ass-in-the-air and HIV’d out in some place. I’m just trying to make it real, baby, like it is.”

    Herbz: “Don’t call me ‘baby,’ nigga; I’ll cut your mothafuckin throat.”

    Gyant: “No offense, Matt, but maybe this blogging shit is what you’re supposed to do with your life, maybe this is what you’re growing to. Just think about it, don’t throw it out, just listen: You’re gonna keep blogging for me until I tell you to quit. And that’s that…”

    Matt Herbz: “You don’t own me, pig. And no motherfucker tells me when I can split.”

    Gyant: “Who the fuck do you think you’re talking to? I’m Gyant, nigga! I ate Sandra Rose and spit out Streetz. King Kong ain’t got shit on me!”

    Matt Herbz: “I’m talking to you, you Gyant faggot. My name is Matteus Decimus Herbzius, Commander of the White Niggaz of the South, President of White Nigga Movement, loyal servant to the White Nigga race. Father to not a single child. Lover to over a million women. And I will have my vengeance on you, Gyant, on your blog or the next…”

    (Matt quickly stands up, unholsters his stainless Colt 1911 and swings it around to aim at Gyant’s left multi-laned nostril but comes to his senses and replaces it back in its spot. Instead, he removes a flask of Hennessy from his jacket’s inside pocket, takes a long swig, then throws it at Gyant as Gyant ducks and yelps like a little girl. Herbz snaps his finger at his security, points to the door, then briskly walks out to his idling white on white Escalade.)

    Matt Herbz: “Just when I thought I was out… They pull me back in…”

    My bad I retract my former comments I see what your getting at.

    Bol…you just made my day!

    I have followed both SOHH and Sandrarose for as long as I have read your blog and it just pissed me off when he was made the blogger for the ATL…yeah this nigga is gay! Does it matter? Well maybe not but….for the majority of us who read hip hop sites we like our shit straight w/ no chaser….by the way he has always denied being a fudge packer and his home girl just exposed him. I was one of the first ones to point folks to Sandra’s site and all hell broke loose. Is this shit pretty small compared all thats going on in the world yes…but its entertaining.

  • thoreauly77

    well, i am not for gay-bashing in any way, but i will say this: the guy seems pretty gay to me so he should just come out of the closet. if he came out of the closet he would probably get less shit and could just change lanes and be “the gay blogger” officially. as it stands, the whole beef with his “hag” is stupid, and the matt herbz stuff is wacker than wack.
