Katt Williams: A Simp Named Slickback?

As Christmas inched toward New Year’s Day, Dark & Lovely spokes-leprechaun Katt Williams confused the fuck out of me by attacking Steve Harvey and threatening to steal his comedy crown during a joint NYE performance in the coooold-ass D.

While Jamie Foxx chose to endorse his former Dubba-dubba-WB slotmate, I maintain that Steve Harvey is a major-league coon. I don’t care how lean a nigga pockets get, there is some shit I just can’t endorse. Fucking Denny’s is high atop that list.

I also agree that it’s impossible for Steve Harvey to be one of the Original Kings of Comedy when countless comics before him took this shit to heights Mr. Hightower has never seen. All I remember from Harvey’s portion of the inaptly-named special is a tired-ass chuuuch routine and his official audition for the position of oldies station on-air personality.

[Blogger's Note: Bernie motherfuckin' Mac earned the motherfuckin' namesake that motherfuckin' night.]

“Awwwww, this was my jam back in the damn day! What y’all young bucks know about this Earth, Wind & Fire?! *snickering alone*

For all of the stones thrown before and during the Detriot NYE performance, Katt Williams speaks like a man who wasn’t sitting Indian-style in a padded cell singing “Endless Love” into a limited-edition Marsha Brady hairbrush just a week ago.

As soon as he started poppin off, all I could remember was how this nigga couldn’t so much as order a cheeseburger from room service without forgetting his own name. I done seent the video. Holler if you hear me, now.

Katt Williams just came out the damn crazy house. Why aren’t niggas just ignoring him like society does the rest of the mentally ill? His tactics now include those seen from desperate rappers on the verge of moving back into the projects with grandma-nana’nem. I guess he hasn’t exactly been on the streets to see how well the kicking and screaming routine has been working out for 50 Cent and Soulja Boy, but pimps are supposed to be naturally intuitive creatures.

Maybe when Williams finally came to, the Dipset chain on his dresser was the only clue to remind him of who he was. That’s pretty fucking sad as Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zeekey have long since redeemed their shits at the recycling center.

This back-and-forth EweToube beef doesn’t go over well for rappers. It’s damn sure not gonna work for comedians.

As much disdain as I harbor for T-Pain’s incessant Auto-Tune whining, as far as we all know he discretely covered for Williams at the onset of his toddler spaz. I’m not gonna go as far as to say homeboy’s been on drugs or anything, because I don’t know the man. But given the series of events in Money Mike’s life to end 2008, it’s looking more and more like Teddy Pizzle was just the temp who filled in for that one co-worker who “had a little too much fun, Charlie Murphy.” He likely could have told the world some pretty foul shit after The Negro Channel Hip-Hop Awards, instead he made up that bullshit story about the breaking contest.

What this nigga Katt should have done was capitalize properly on the initial buzz that came from The Pimp Chronicles, Part 1. That shit was incredible. I have it on my DVR to this fucking day! His Lilliputian ass kicked the door wide-the-fuck open then. All he had to do was come up with some new material, tour a bit and watch the money pile up. Apparently he did all but the foremost, then broke the fuck down before our disappointed eyes.

I love Katt Williams. Some niggas back on Big Green even accused me of being Katt Williams blog alter-ego, but I can’t rock with A Pimp Named Slickback on this type of behavior. I do hope he makes a full recovery someday in the not-so-distant future, though.

The first sign would likely be the perm looking correct again, because that shit was looking a little Whitney Houston-ish in the NYE video.

Questions? Comments? Requests? Ready for the 2008 Negro Please Awards set to begin this week? *GASP!* ron@ronmexicocity.com

P.S.: Judges also would have accepted, “That [perm] was looking like a lost member of Total.”

    Katt was next in line. He was the next great comic, but he didn’t follow-up. Too bad. Pimp Chronicles was incredible indeed. It was the perfect launching pad.

    wow i can’t believe u didn’t blog about soulja boy’s house getting robbed. I would’ve put money on a consecutive soulja boy post.

    but anyway, isn’t katt williams making (or made) a rap album? I think he’s funny, but goddamn he’s annoying outside of his standup. He’s like the mayweather of standup. Steve Harvey on the other hand, I don’t find very funny at all, but respect as a person. He’s like the jay smooth of standup.

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

      you know, i don’t know if a kid gettin robbed at gunpoint is really an NP moment. that shit can happen to anyone. i’d never wish that on him or delight in that having happened to dude.

      if i found out he antagonized some people into jackin him up… then maybe we’d have something to talk about there.

      i was actually looking forward to katt’s rap album. he’s not terrible on the mic. nothing special, but i was hoping for some rare funny music that didn’t take itself too seriously.

      oh, well.

      • amar

        oh i didn’t know it was a stickup. I thought they just took his yums while he was outta the house

        he did sorta advertise his shit up for jacking…i mean, “Rich Nigga Shit”?

    Katt followed up Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1 with American Hustle and now It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin’. Both those shows are funny as hell too.

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

      they’re funny, but i found them to be more of the same, ya know? and definitely not steps forward.

      we keep it PUSHIN round here, pimpin.

  • geico lizard

    “Ready for the 2008 Negro Please Awards set to begin this week?” That woke me up ron. Should last years winner be automatically ineligible this year or can he win again this year and start a dynasty like the chicago bulls had?

    “Some niggas back on Big Green even accused me of being Katt Williams blog alter-ego” You have to be really funny to get that compliment when Katt was in his prime. I agree with you Katt can comeback but Steve Harvey is a less talented version of tom joyner but with 10 times the ego.

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

      less talented tom joyner? ouch.

      i don’t know how i’d feel about tom joyner standup, but he’s perfect at his job on the radio.

      steve definitely thinks he’s given a little more to comedy than he actually has.

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

      and you’re thinking about the SDN tournament.

      that’s different. if anyone remembers how i got down on big green, i wrap up every calendar year with an awards ceremony.

      there are plenty good ones to give out, and i’ll be asking y’all opinions this week on who deserves what.

  • Bobo D

    Damn bitch slapping a supposed pimp and the new year only just begun…
    if I was in the crowd I would have yelled, “Pimp down! Pimp down!”

    Commentors Note: Speaking of Jim Jones don’t he remind you of Dirty Dee from Pootie Tang.

    What is this post about again?

    What is this post about again?????

  • Pierzy

    Yo, Katt was on Howard Stern last year and his interview made no sense. Dude was on some wild shit. Every answer sounded like it was to a different question…you couldn’t follow dude. He should trade the Dip chain for a straight jacket and a spot in Arkham Asylum.

  • $ykotic

    Everybody wanna be famous but no one wants fame.

    “Katt Williams speaks like a man who wasn’t sitting Indian-style in a padded cell singing “Endless Love” into a limited-edition Marsha Brady hairbrush just a week ago.”

    Only you could put the Force MDs and the Brady Bunch together and pop with it.

    Katt should be the spokesperson for incoherency.

  • king blair

    I smell hate cuz he ate Harvey ass alive i watched that clip he killed dat nigga when he did the slide kick a ninja was laughin like hell

  • Jerm

    i never felt Katt was really next in line, which is cuz to this day i still find Chappelle as one of the funniest dudes every, besides Bernie Mac RIP, Corey Holcomb and Jamie Foxx…but he was still funny!!!

    And yo Ron, did u get that leprechaun reference from Foxxhole Radio!!??! when they spoke to Steve Harvey lol – “hes gonna trip on his belt buckle!!!” LOL

    but nice drop as the other guy said.

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

      actually, i got it from the pimp chronicles. anthony anderson at the end.

      “oh shit, nigga. you really ARE a leprechaun!”

      i don’t know what else he expected with that green velvet suit, hat and buckle.

      and thanks, holmes.

      i loved how jamie got at terrence howard. i BEEN sayin that shit about how he the same nigga every role.

      • Jerm

        np man i like the pieces of writing you’ve been putting up.

        but Foxxhole Radio has made me think Jamie is one of the best, cuz his improv abilities within a convo with anyone is pure jokes!!! but Katt had me dying on his first videos, Pimp Chronicles and American Hustle were amazing to me! LOL

        and do u know if there is a video of their battle up anywhere?

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    Nice drop as always.

    People don’t use Lilliputian enough.

      oh. how we’ve missed you, good sir!


    Man if you think katt williams is funny try watching his shit when YOU NOT HIGH he has his moments but man that shit is for weedheads and wiggers

    • Hate Hate and more Hate

      I smoke good and I still think Kat Williams is not funny.

  • jojo

    Katt is overrated. When there is a drought, you are going to put whatever seems relevent at that point in time on a pedestal. Right now, it seems like Katt Williams and Dane Cook exemplify this rule to a T. I keep hearing the same bullshit routine over and over from Money Mike.

    Fuck Katt. Corey Holcomb is the future…

  • c b w

    Let’s face it….at this point Katt is on his way to becoming a Jesse Jackson comic. Although I think he is funny, he needs to step up his topic game instead of repeating the same shit we already know. i.e. niggas hating on you, bitch ass niggas, his height, etc….

    I’m back like lumbar!!!!
