Making Cents From The Senseless…

Today’s drop is sponsored (but not really) by Victoria’s Secrets steel underwire bras for men and women and Patron Reposada. The orange fuckin’ box.

What if Foxy Brown and Rick Ross hooking up is an arranged marriage by the t.I.’s at Universal Music Group? And why not? The t.I.’s realize that the game needs a female rapper to step up and get some shine. Foxy Brown could be a hot commodity with her provacative looks (read: really bulbous breats) and her street cred at an all time high. The only problem is that Foxy has become somewhat institutionalized. If she is free to roam in the public sector then he is likely to throw a brick at someone who crosses her. Real talk is that homegirl needs supervision.

Step in another one of UMG’s properties , er, artists, Rick Ross. His background as a correctional officer might just provide the stablility that Foxy Brown needs to complete her next album. The correctional system in Florida is one of the most hardbody detention systems here in America. They are a privately owned corporation that can legally beat kids to death. Rick Ross hopefully won’t have to do that to keep Foxy in line, but if he did, he would get off all charges.

Rick Ross might be mad at Trick Daddy for exposing him as an federal agant but Trick Daddy has been on the other end of that coin as well, literally the wrong end. Peep his history with Detroit’s Trick Trick. It makes sense to me that a syndicate of corporations that own stock in the prison industrial complex would consign their employees to portray characters that would ultimately drive business upwards by helping to maintain the flow of inmates. It’s the hustle of the flow.

“The number of women in prison, a third of whom are incarcerated for drug offenses, is increasing at nearly double the rate for men. – The Sentencing Project

I’m certainly not going to blame rap music for this shit either, but it isn’t helping solve the problem. America puts too many people in jail. Period. Of course, there are the unsociable motherfuckers more 7:30 than the Joker, but the overwhelming majority of inmates are being held for non-violent crimes. And most of that is related to narcotics in some way. Why else do we continue to build jails if they aren’t profitable? Gas prices continue to escalate and car manufacturers don’t stop building automobiles either. I always wondered if Sunoco or Shell owned stakes (stocks) in Daimler-Benz?

This is what I mean by making sense of the senseless. If profit is the motivating force of capitalism then who stands to gain the most at the end of the day. Those are the dudes that run this rap shit.

    “SUB Zero… Plain zero” – the govenator….

    running man is my shit!

  • 239allday

    When speaking of Niggerlas cage do you mean the movie Face off. Not really prison movie though so I might be wrong.

    Shawshank Redemption my is personal favorite.

  • Pierzy

    I can’t believe Stuttering John is the announcer for “The Tonight Show” when he says things like Niggerless Cage. Anyway, does American History X count as a prison film?

  • The Music Director, WWIB

    BXS– have you seen “Point Blank”? Lee Marvin there is as hardbody as Brer Rabbit in “Coonskin”– harder even, if without the “ethnic” resonance. Seriously, if ya’ll don’t know it, it’s fucking amazing. Lee getting beat down on Alcatraz is the ** last ** time that sorta shit is going to happen! Good call on “Papillon,” I’d also add “The Defiant Ones” &– oh shit–


    “Point Blank” >>> “Brute Force” >>> “Papillon” >>> the rest.

    The movie is called the rock

  • ri067953

    Yo, what about American Me? The shanking scene at the end is the most hardbodiest out there!

  • Champlain

    Now that i think about it…Nick Cage has been in a few jail movies…the rock, con air, and Face off….Fortress was crazy back in the day…

  • Benicio Del Thoro

    Yeah Sunday, where’s American Me on that list? That crew had the white boy who was chicano and that dude was thoro.

    Rick Ross can only gain from all of this. I bet people in Florida don’t care.

    DJ Khaled before he deejayed, used to be a spokesperson for subway.

    I always enjoyed the beginning of We Takin Over the video when Khaled and Ross are in the Maybach and they get pulled over and then Khaled throws the officer that watch, and says, “You must be new or somethin cause We The Best.”

    Pure comedy folks…

  • Ron Mexico

    amen on “penitentiary.” fuck “undisputed.”

    no cool hand luke? the longest yard?

    don the dragon wilson & richard roundtree bloodfist iii? richard jones & master p in lockdown?

    okay, i’ll stop.

    no more prisons.


    Billy Ray Valentine had a dope jail scene in Trading Places.

    Foxy just needs to make records and stop looking for camera lenses and jail sentences to validate her.


    Escape From Alcatraz that joint was good.
    what about thayt movie it had that spanish guy who looked white but really was spanish. or his dad was spanish and his mom was white. he lost his leg and a whole bunch of shit and in the end he became like the boss of the spanish people in jail. if you watch movies you know what i am talking about he was in the gang la onda or something like that. i think it’s called blood in blood out

    Hellzeah to Blood in Blood out. That shit is like American Me’s less popular brother who lives with his lazy ass mom, while his Dad started a new life and has a happy family. Wtf am I talkin bout? Wow. But that flick is the business though.
