Questions? Comments? Requests? Don’t see your favorite “ether” up there? Fuck. I don’t remember them myself after I write them. ron@ronmexicocity.com

  • giantstepp

    While you have some very worthy canidates on your lists, we all know that Soulja Boy Tell’em hands down should get this. My god Ron Mex, he is in every F-ing catergory!!

  • giantstepp

    Excuse me, that should’ve read Ron “Ether” Mexico.

  • Curtis75Black

    1. Soulja Boy

    2. R. Kelly and Soulja Boy tie

    3. R. Kelly, Rick Ross and Soulja Boy 3way tie

    4. DMX markes the Spot….Scott Storch’s

  • General

    I say its a difficult decision between Soulja Boy and Yung Berg in every category. I think they need their own seperate category, or should be forced into some kind of cage match for the National Coon Championship of the World

    • Lowedwn

      I’m thinking the same shit. The sad thing is they’re both pretty young, they could be setting a standard for years to come…you know, considering they even have (something-like a)career to speak of at this point next year. I gotta go with Berg though to pull a reapeat of Michael Jackson’s grammy night, I see at least 8 NP awards in this young man’s future.

  • LEO

    Nigger moment of the year:

    DMX getting locked up 20 times in one week

    oh and I dunno if this happened b4 the year ended…but Souldier boy saying that Nas killed Hip-Hop?

    OH!!! and Lil Wang saying that he’s 2 cool to read!!!!

  • El Tico Loco

    Yung Berg and Soulja Boy are gonna be seeded high in the DN tournament if you ever have one

    But you forgot Kanye on Conan as an NP ether. I still laugh about the ‘abominable blowjob monster’ joke.

  • Mike Crown

    1. Soulja Boy

    2. Diddy

    3. Dem Franchize Boyz

    4. A Very Diddy Christmas

    “Rub this Ciroc in your breasts and on your vaginaaaaa!”

    LMAO!!!!!

  • $ykotic

    1. Yung Berg(bird) Done went from gangsta to hipster after he became a victim

    2. DMX How u cop from a cop in broad daylight? Then go home and catch another charge? WOW

    3. SBT Ya’ll gave him money, I didn’t

    4. SBT ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  • geico lizard

    Plaxico ethered himself and maybe his nfl career. He hopes he can beat the case like marvin harrison.

  • Pierzy

    What’s poppin’ Mexx? Let’s get into it (in order):

    1. Soulja Boy Tellem
    2. Jim Jones
    3. Soulja Boy Tellem’s Slave Master Props
    4. Soulja Boy Claims Nas Actually Killed Hip Hop

    Yeah, Soulja Boy is gonna treat this award show like Lauryn Hill did the Grammys. Actually, the Lauryn “ether” was ill too now that I think about it…………….

  • j.calderon

    Oh shit! you said “Rick Ross’ Coming Out Party [C.O.P.]“. That had me rolling.

    I think SB and YB are on the same level except that Soulja Boy has had some success on the charts. Yung Berg? Not so much.

  • Worley

    Mex, you make sh*t difficult for a n*gga sometimes. Here goes:

    1. Tie: Soulja Boy Tellem and T-Pain
    2. Tie: Diddy and Kanye West
    3. Dem Franchize Boyz
    4. Tie: Soulja Boy Loves Massa and Soulja Boy
    claims Nas Actually Killed Hip-Hop

  • jojo

    Coon of the year:
    T-pain – If Spike made Bamboozled in 2009, Savion Glover would be out of a job.

    Negro of the year:
    R.Kelly, while singing “You saved me, You saved me, gave me a second chance!!!” repeatedly on national television

    N***er Moment:
    Tie between “Everything that occured at the Ozone awards” and “Whenever a rapper endorsed Obama (Jay-Z, Common and Will.I.Am being the exceptions)”

    Ether of the year:
    Mike Vick a.k.a. Ron Mexicana

    and what ceremony would be complete without the House N***er lifetime achievement award:
    Bob Johnson, while Farakhan nods in approval

  • DBlock

    1. Busta Rhymes & Ron Browz (black folk should kno better)

    2. Kanye West (smacked a photog, recorded an emo album, declared himself above critique and applied for a LouieV internship… cmon, it was Ye’s year!)

    3. Mr. Tellem (pound-for-pound, no other moment comes close to matching this one on the ignorance/stupidity/outrage/smh scales)

    4. Yung Berg (Berg’s problem is he peaked too early… kinda like an amazing movie that gets released right after the Oscars. no one’s gonna remember by the time award season rolls back around)

    • http://www.myspace.com/someloveandsomehate Slash

      NP Honorable Mention for comparing Yung Berg to anything “amazing”.

  • Omar

    Soulja Boy should win the Triple Crown, he’s the Babe Ruth of this shit! And the ether of the year is your response to Trick Trick.

  • El Tico Loco

    If NP was the Billboard charts Yung Berg and SBT might have a career cuz they live here.

  • FlapJack

    Coon of the year is Diddy..
    Negro of the Year? what’s that supposed to mean?
    Nigger Moment of the Year is that soulja boy remark

    I hope the ether goes to a letter to Trick Trick, but x marks the spot was the funniest

    • tony grand$

      Mex, I think this year I’ll just sit in the audience & enjoy the show…..but I gotta cosign Flap, the TrickTrick ether was phenomenal, but “X marks the spot (scott storch’s)” was a decent 3 days of laughter.

  • paychexx

    soulja boy did it to himself when he said nas killed hip hop.

    jermiah wright, the only nigga that was supporting mccain openly, daddy yankee too( i know he puerto rican,but hey)o.j.simpson(that nigga should sat his ass down)them old ass civil rights muhfuckas( al sharpton still my dude, he kept quiet through the election)

    i have to say this, if any nigga was worrying about another nigga stealing ya “swag”. nigga u lost.

    oh, the govt for bailing out rich folks
    peace mex, ya doing the damn thing.one

  • amar

    soulja boy deserves an award, cause all his got stolen. BUT…after being robbed of the SDN title, i think diddy deserves to win big

    btw i’m fucking retarded so i had to google who won the SDN tournament (i had to make sure i don’t look like a dumbass, if diddy did win…i forgot ok?!)

    anyway this was your comment to my comment back then:

    Ron Mexico says:

    great question.

    i’ve got my eye on charles hamilton… not because i think he’s dumb, i just think he’s gonna say something uncharacteristically stupid one of these days.

    goddamn…ur a regular ms. motherfucking cleo…

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    Young Buck had the everlasting all-time nigger quote, “sometimes a nigga get confused”

    Latarian Milton was also a rock star.

  • http://hiphoponmymind.blogspot.com DJ Daddy Mack

    PLIES SHOULD NOT BE UP THERE. SMH, RON. -_-

    • tony grand$

      Okay, this could fit in to the coon write in, or the negro slot………

      I nominate Jesse Jackson for making remarks about damaging Obama’s testicular region (fuckin hater!), then pullin a 180 & cryin like a 14 year old rape victim @ the election victory speech (right next to Oprah Winfrey fried bologna sandwich ass).
      *$*

  • Hate Hate and more Hate

    Charles Hamilton for gettering clowned by Soulja Girl

    Kangay Zest for saying he’s the voice of this generation

    Plaxico for becoming the 2008 version of Cheddar Bob

    Any rapper who particaped in wack ass youtube/world star video beef

    Any rapper that wore tight ass jeans and rocked a designer purse

    Jim Jones should get the dick rider of the year award

  • Simple like ABC, 123

    NP Coon of the Year: Yung Berg

    NP Negro of the Year: Diddy

    NP Nigger Moment of the Year: Soulja Boy Tellem’s Slave Master Props

    • DV8

      sorry I meant

      SB
      Diddy (but that kid L.M. is real close)
      SB
      SB

      and shots out to Billy X for nominating Laterian Milton (remember the fat kid from Florida who stole his Grandma’s car and then went to work on her over some chicken wings at Wally World (Wal-Mart).

      P.S. you should have added a “You played yourself” category. Jim Jones and Ron Browz are a couple of names that come to mind. Soulja Boy is in this race too. Speaking of “Ether Boy” how do you get so big headed after making a sub-par beat to legendary lyrics 7 years ago? Im just saying am I the only one who noticed this?

  • Deez Nutz

  • FlapJack
