NEGRO PLEASE: Firestarr feat. 50 Cent & Brandy – “Dying For Attention”

[Editor's Note: "Blogger's Note" has been taken over by Ron Mexico until further notice]

I used to be a devout Onyx fan. I still have all of their albums on my iPod when I really should only have the first three. Dem crazy baldheads were the first band/group of any kind I ever followed religiously. (I wouldn’t call Kid ‘N Play religion. You just kinda couldn’t get away from them.) If Sticky Fingaz, Fredro [Starr], Sonnee and D.S. founded a church, they’d have found my ass in a front row seat and my allowance in the collection plate.

Throughout the summer of 1993 I rocked a baldie and by then Bacdafucup had become my personal score.

Imagine how pitifully the Little Ronnie inside me died as he helplessly watched former hero Fredro’s behavioral pattern become so reflective of those denounced in “Bitchasniguz.”

It’s like watching grandma-nana lose that battle with Alzheimer’s.

[Caution: This video contains Bitch-Nigga Tendencies (BNT)]

I guess Fredro officially stopped being a hero around the time he built Koch Records from the ground up. (*vomits*) This was also around the time he asked to be referred to by his rainbow district name, Firestarr and released Dying For Rap.

I would hope it was Koch that made him jump around in that R. Kelly 12 Play vest he wore when he was in the lab trying to Frankenstein himself a “Perfect Bitch.”

Shoulda been tryin to make a perfect album.

I always appreciate a good history lesson, but damn. When a nigga gives you an opportunity to reaffirm your relevance you gotta come up with better than the following:

“Umm… I’m still eatin off ‘Slam.’ You know how my day go. I wake up. Check the DVR to see if Moesha is playin on TV One or some shit like that. If it is, I check to see if it’s one of my episodes… Then I check the local little WB affiliate-type joint wherever I’m at to see if they playin Sunset Park… You know that’s all Brandy could watch when she was like 16.”

It’s time to get live. It’s time to represent. Sunset Park, what time is it?

That shit is all Brandy could watch? Yes, I could totally see it playing that way. A teen superstar sequestering herself to her room like a junkie watching fuckin Sunset Park every waking moment.

Ray J. Bring me some Chee-tos and come push play on the VCR!”

Negro, please.

It was a cool movie and all. I liked it, but I mean… you don’t have to see the shit more than twice inna lifetime.

I’m starting to think Fredro paid these guys to talk.

How proud is he to have gotten some underage neck behind Wanya Morris’ back? That’s some shit a regular nigga would just let slide. There’s no need to show off the Martian Dome merit badge. I know it’s kinda cool to get over on Boyz II Men, but the announcement would have been far more interesting ten years ago.

Besides, everybody got a turn on Brandy in 1997. Mase, Wanya, fuckin Hakim (R.I.P. Jerome Bentley). Nigga shoulda been tryin to get after Monica before C-Murder. Fredro ain’t special runnin around lookin like half-a-Starbury and dressed like Tyrone Biggums found some sunglasses on a subway seat.

“These is Versace, Rhonda!”

Yet dude can’t stop stammering on about how pretty he is.

In fact, that’s why 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather hate him. It can’t be because he’s a douchebag and a coke gremlin. No. Can’t be.

I bet Fredro was on the front line of that boy soldier batallion throwing bottles at 50 Cent on Guy Brew.

For good measure the washed-up Onyx-member/teen acting senation hits us with the classic Bizzy Bone “Ain’t nobody give me no money yet.” Now 50 Cent was supposed to break Fredro off with a few million dollars because they let him drop a verse on an Onyx record no one’s ever heard before?

Negro, please.

No certified thorough nigga yaps like a bitch this much. I’m sorry to have exposed you all to 4+ minutes of bitchassness–especially bitchassness from a nigga that’s supposed to be a rap legend. The shit hurts my heart.

Truly.

    Damn Ronnie, you took entirely too long to get to the point. It kind of sounds like you want to whip freddro’s ass. The only group I ‘ve ever followed like that is Bone Thugs. I don’t understand why you liked onyx so much anyways, them niggas too hyper.

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      bone was the second group i followed religiously.

      i think i was the only one in new york.

  • DETROIT

    i just started reading this blog, and i have a question…..these niggas had more than 2 albums? wtf? all i remember is “bacdafucup” and the song “the last days”

    am i outta the loop?

    did they scream on every album?

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      shut em down was pretty good… but i can’t co-sign any of the others.

      • King B

        Not even throw ya guns up????? you gotta be kiddin me

        • http://www.ronmexicocity.com ron mexico

          we’re talking POST All We Got Iz Us.

          albums like badafucup ii and triggernometry are sad at best.

          come on… the whole bacdafucup and all we got iz us = can’t be fucked with. i love those albums. shut em down is strong too, but they completely lost it after that.

          i feel the need to clarify that for everyone. don’t want niggas gettin the wrong idea.

  • http://www.myspace.com/youngmyke Myke_Wayne

    Ronnie is still killin’ em
    Fuck it, lil’ Nigga had it coming anyhow

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      oh, shit. what it do, myke?

  • Lowedwn

    Oh man this shit was clownin, and so true. They need to start censoring You Tube, so that some of these cats just don’t blantantly play themselves, I’m still have nightmares of Kiddie Pools and hearing “it’s gonna be hot summer doggie”, only to see Cam’ron pull a straight Sly Stone and fall off the face of the earth. And I too was a devout member of the Nation of Ony as a matter of fact it was me & Jack….theblackvaginafinda, LMAO.

  • DETROIT

    LMAO….GOOD ONE HOMMIE!

    Fredro is finished, even if i give him the 50 cent exception (50 cent exception = it’s ok to talk like a bitch about 50, cuz 50 tapes conversations, and talks like a bitch bout everyone else) he’s still loosing.

  • Deez Nutz

    LOL @ rainbow district name, Firestarr. Who the hell cares about Brandy now anyway…And who the hell brags about starting Koch…thats like bragging about starting the CBA or XFL or The Source (nice jab if i say so myself)

    Ray J>Brandy & Firestarr

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      hahaha. i don’t play comment count games.

      i’m not here for the stats. there are gonna be days where we ain’t talkin about wayne and we don’t get that many responses. it’s no thang.

      we had a 700 comment monster where all niggas did was list their favorite quotes, you know?

  • yoprince

    lol.. damn. went in.

    never liked dude.. always seemed corny to me. but i’m 22 and from the south, dunno..

  • Dr Flav

    After hearing about how Iovine sonned Busta, seeing this video makes me sad for NY rappers. Bitch ass niggaz will never sound the same again, what’s the deal with this cat’s mouth movements, like he been smokin woos or something.

  • Queens Boy

    fredro star aka the worst rapper from queens ever damn ron, you went in on em’ if he really is doing all that shit you say he’s doing, then fuck em

    P.S. the only group i followed religiously was wu tang clan

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      hey, mane. watch the video and decide for yourself.

      i ain’t never smoked a woolah with him, but he suffers from familiar woo-smoker symptoms, as dr. flav already pointed out.

  • Queens Boy

    lmao@ woo-smoker symptoms…you a real character Ron

  • Queens Boy

    yo that vid was hilarious! but it’s as you said mane the nigga is dying for attention. he been dissing 50 cent for what like half a decade now?
    get a life faggotstarr lmao@ i’m still eatin off “Slam.. lying ass nigga everyone knows he ain’t get paid for slam or any other joints, sticky was the real star of onyx. sonny and the rest of em were/are weed carriers. i’m out,one hundred

    P.S. Thanks Again Ron, for a hearty laugh and another on-point post

  • Tha Ace

    only thing i like in the past 5 years with fredro was the joint he had with the outlawz on it where one of the outlawz did nameplay with album titles………shit was bangin, and possibly the what if single he did

  • Vicious Seiger

    WTF is Fredro on? The link to that video interview is hilarious, he really thinks he was doing something back then. Talking about
    Sunset Park like that movie was some kind of classic. Now, we all know Brandy has been a wannabe since way back [I guess "I wanna be down" was really more than just a song.] and if she thought blowing fredro was the key than she must have been tapping this nigga’s stash of coke. This man is straight delusional because when it came to Onyx he was just the “other nigga” rolling with Sticky Fingaz. No one gave a damn about him or Sonnee. This nigga is a sad example of a man who is bitter because his time has come and passed & no one misses him on wax or TV. Looking like he’s standing a bus station rockin’ back & forth like he itching for a fix. Fredro, I’m sorry but how does it feel when Flavor Flav is getting more cash and ass than you?

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com ron mexico

      bwahahaha @ bus station. i was wondering the same shit.

      like, nigga… where the hell are you?

      and damn @ flavor getting more cash and ass. so true. so sad.

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    Vicious made a good point that Fredro is gonna have to wait for Flav to merc’k himself on angel dust before he can get back on again.

    This interview was conducted in the bus terminal across from the Coliseum. You know the spot R.Mexxo.

    BTW, congrats and welcome to the last real Hip-Hop website.

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      damn. i remember that night now. cinnamon, right?

      thank you, mr. sunday. i’m glad to be playing for such a strong team.

      let’s make it do what it do.

  • LOSTGYRL

  • balaramesh

    “NO ONE IS THINKING ABOUT YOU. COREY HAIM GOT MORE SHINE RIGHT NOW!” wooow, that was brutal.

    regardless of the fact, we all spent time reading and responding to him. but yes, his rap career is over.

  • mike

    • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

      as part of onyx, anyway… not the solo career.

  • Yusef Shaheed

    Fredo is definitely a certified Bitch Ass N…..

  • K.ola

    Onyx must have been the East Coast answer to Death row…

    Slam was awful!!!

  • geico lizard

    ron are you trying to suggest that fredro bragging about starting up koch records isnt as big as ll cool j saying he started up def jam?LMAO

  • Hashim Warren

    “All We Got Iz Us” is a classic. I used to listen to that and GZA’s first album everyday in 10th grade.

    Onyx, Wu-Tang, and Boot Camp. That was my religion back then. I could never co-sign you on that Bone Thugs addiction, Ronnie.
