Been In The Game Since The 5th Grade…

11yr old

^Typical American 11yr old = not one bit gangsta

Lil’ Wang says that he signed his Cash Money contract when he was 11. That is in fucking credible that someone gives him a contract when he is a fifth grader. I can only think of Michael Jackson being that ballyhooed and that young. What in the world would a child have to rap about in the fifth grade that would even be marketable in mainstream music. I mean, Disney could figure out the angle to have him rhyme about Care Bears, but what would Cash Money be doing making a children’s album?

There are kids in countries like Haiti or Somalia that have the right to be 11 year old rappers since those kids have more than likely been part of some junta since they were able to walk. There are 10yr old army lieutenants in Haiti. I’m pretty sure of that. Just ask Combat Jack. But what is some kid from the United States, even Detroit, East St. Louis or New Orleans gonna be able to create content about? Maybe he experienced some crazy shit in the foster care sytem? But if he grew up under his momma the only shit he might could spit about is when his momma’s boyfriends come over and get domestic and wear her out.

Rapping is some specialized shit that you have to practice over and over again. Just like anything that is a profession. You wouldn’t want an 11 year old to perform a kidney transplant on you would you? Hells no! You would want someone that had many years of experience at holding a scalpel and removing and replacing organs before you submitted yourself to the anesthesia. Why do you not respect the art that goes into your eyes and ears to the same rigors and requirements? I don’t understand some of you cats sometimes. You don’t even know the difference between dope or dog food.

I’ve given Lil’ Wang the hardest time on this column because I feel like his rhyme catalog contains nothing worth listening to twice. There is no higher level of metaphors or similes and no gravitas of subject matter. Lil’ Wang always receives credit for the genius onomatopoeia of the word “bling”, but wasn’t that B.G. who actually coined the phrase? What has Lil’ Wang inserted into the culture then? What has he given us that we should honor him as great? He doesn’t even deliver great theatre. If Lil’ Wang the rapper is your hero you have lost. If Lil’ Wang the rockstar is your hero get ready for wintime.

Lil’ Wang the rockstar is the best thing since sliced bread. It is Hendrix x Morrison x Jimmy Page minus the talent to play guitar and craft introspective songs. But the part that has drug use and sex with underage girls is there on 100. ‘Prom Queen’ is the first of hopefully many songs which Lil’ Wang uses to create his rockboy image. Buy a studded belt in every color you can find. Copp a pair of those god-awful Supras. Get a tattoo on your eyeballs. This is where the Lil’ Wang movement is headed.

Why would Lil’ Wang even consider battling Fifty. This rap music shit is dead. KanYe is doing R-n-B now. Let all these old rappers like Jadakiss and Cam’Ron have rap music back. Lil’ Wang sold 3 millions albums in the 2008 rap music industry, where 300K is the new platinum. 3 million is like going platinum 10x. Fuck rap. What Lil’ Wang wants to have is stadium status. Rock music will get him stadium status. Sending diss records to the internets will not get him stadium status. If you were writing raps since you were 8 yrs old like Lil’ Wang says he was then why would you want to be doing the same damn thing for twenty years?

Rockstars run the fucking world. Leave the battle raps to the monkeys and gorillas.

Update: Lil’ Wayne Finally Beats Tupac As Most Overrated Rapper Of All Time

    Aren’t there child labor laws against this type of thing?

    ALL TRUE, BUT FUCK THAT ROCKSTAR SHIT.

  • amar

    it’s true, cash money used to sign them super young. I believe BG got signed before his teens as well.

    and wayne was the one saying “bling bling”…not to mention “make it rain” in that fat joe song. He’s been akon before akon.

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com tony grand$

      That’s a good point made there Sunday. ppl say Wayne & Kanye don’t want it from so & so or such & such, but on a larger scale, why would/should they? Wayne is mos defly a fuckin rockstar, suprised the nigga aint gotta energy drink on the shelves yet.

      “The Syrup”. Anything else would be uncivilized.

      I can’t say he impresses me as a rapper, but the lil dude rocks the fuck out, I’ll give him that. Drugs, guns, sex, idiocy, he’s headed up there with the greats.

      All that’s gonna be left ina few more years @ this velocity is suicide.

      • SQUADWILDIN

        I WONDER IF YALL NIGGAS REALIZE THAT LIL WAYNE BECOMING A ROCKSTAR IS PURE SARCASM….BILLY SUNDAY ACTUALLY LISTENS TO ROCK AND HE CAN TELL THAT PROM QUEEN IS STRAIGHT TRASH….AND YALL FEEDIN INTO ALL THIS PSUEDO BULL SHIT LIKE HE MEANT IT SERIOUSLY. SOME OF YALL ARE TAKING IT LITERALLY

        “It is Hendrix x Morrison x Jimmy Page MINUS the TALENT to play guitar and craft INTROSPECTIVE songs”

        BILLY, I THINK ITS TIME FOR YOU TO DUMB DOWN YOUR ARTICLES. SOME OF THESE NIGGAS DONT KNOW WAT IRONY OR SARCASM OR ANY OF THAT SHIT IS

          CAPS LOCK I WONDER IF YOU REALIZE THAT “ROCKSTAR” WAS ONLY MENTIONED BY TONY GRAND AND THEREFORE SAYING ‘Y’ALL’ DOESN’T MAKE MUCH SENSE CAPS LOCK

          CAPS LOCK MAYBE IT’S OUR COMMENTS THAT NEED TO BE DUMBED DOWN FOR IDIOTS LIKE U CAPS LOCK

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com tony grand$

          Thanx Amar, u got my attn, bcuz I usually don’t read CAPLOCK comments. They’re like crazy ppl yelling @ the computer.

          I stand by my comment, CAPSLOCK.

          Rockstar, rockstar, rockstar, rockstar, rockstar, rockstar, rockstar, rockstar, etc.

        • SQUADWILDIN

          You tony grand are a faggot and i think i told you that before

          and me using CAPS LOCK STILL DOES NOT INVALIDATE MY POINT YOU FUCKIN HOMOS.

          SADLY TO SAY, IM TIRED OF SEEIN PPL MISS THE POINT ON HALF THESE BLOGS. LIL WAYNE WOULD NOT MAKE A GOOD ROCKSTAR NO MATTER HOW MANY BLOW JOBS HE RECEIVES FROM HIS MALE FANS(TONY GRAND) TO SOLIDIFY HIS “STADIUM STATUS” SORRY BUDDY.

          AND I DONT USUALLY TYPE IN ALL CAPS, BUT SINCE IT PISSES YOU HOMOS OFF SO MUCH, I WILL CONTINUE

          COCK SUCKERS

          ****POURS ON THE KEROSENE, AND LIGHTS a BLAZE TO TONY GRANDS ASS****

          NOW YOU’RE REALLY A FLAMING HOMO AND YOU THANK SQUADWILDIN FOR THAT

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com tony grand$

          Relax Squid Willy,

          I love it when u emo transexuals get riled up. U use caps bcuz ur computers broke. You sound a lil too upset to be a man, & if it secures ur feminine ways, fine man, I’m a faggot. We both know u don’t know me from ur real dad if we both walked up to u afterschool & pissed on ur airwalks. So save the personal attacks for ur lil brother.

          Sorry if I upset u by callin Wayne a rockstar. Maybe one day ppl will call u things, besides “waste of sperm” & “the abortion that didn’t take”. Let me start, weird human sperm recepticle. Feel better?

          Who the fuck keeps track of internet insults? U remember callin me a name, AND I’m the homo. U prolly been trollin the net like the child molestee u are, lookin for some way to be my friend no thanks. And no thanks for the duck sauce “now you’re really flamin” line. Wow. 16 yrs on Earth, & tha the best you got. Damn, ur moms obgyn must really be ashamed.

          If caps make u feel tough, continue amigo. & please stop repeatin my name, esp in all caps, its uncomfortable, and real creepy.

        • SQUADWILDIN

          Every time i think of tony grand, i associate you with tony yayo for some reason. except for riding 50′s dick, you constantly ridin Lil Wayne, minus the benefits….just the after taste of hot sperm. yes you are a faggot and a fool.

          and wats this obsession/phobia wit caps locks? nigga i only said your name like twice you fuckin homo….and i’ve probly called you a homo plenty of times…wats sad is that you’ve been called a homo so many times that it doesnt phase you anymore. I can count on one hand, the number of ppl that have called me homo in my lifetime. You my friend, would be the first. Congratulations.

          but honestly, i’m not good at trading insults back and forth…I’m an educated man with a bright future. i’ll leave that to the clowns like yourself…you might be familiar with this quote cock sucker….

          “BROKE NIGGAS ONLY MAKE JOKES”…SO I’LL LET YOU GET BACK TO THE JOKES, AND I’LL BE GETTIN BACK TO THE MONEY.

          ****Side-Note: Squid Willy???? STALE. I DONT LIKE IT.******

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com tony grand$

          Egads, ur right! U r not good @ trading jokes back and forth. All love lil guy.

          I like how u recycled my waste of sperm remark. Next time quote me.

          & btw, check the archives. No where near a lil Wayne fan. Do some research.

          Have a good one champ.

        • squadwildin

          Nigga the hot sperm I presented is not even related to your joke. I said you have Waynes hot sperm in your mouth. you said i was a waste of sperm. I’m startin to think your reading comprehension is the problem here

          ANd dont get mad at me for helpin yo bitch ass out. I’m just the quiet gentleman in the room tappin the retard on the shoulder tellin him to shut the fuck up before he makes a bigger fool of himself. Twice you have agreed to some shit you shouldn’t have

          A. the statement that clearly was sarcasm, you agreed with it like the fuck-tard you are.

          B.Secondly, amar basically told me not to put him and the other intelligent readers in the same dumb ass category as you, and you thanked him for it….wtf??

          and i quote….”I WONDER IF YOU REALIZE THAT “ROCKSTAR” WAS ONLY MENTIONED BY TONY GRAND(THE RETARD) AND THEREFORE SAYING ‘Y’ALL’ DOESN’T MAKE MUCH SENSE”….basically amar was sayin not categorize him were the only person that dumb enough to actually to agree SERIOUSLY to a sarcastic remark. so basically the joke was on Lil Wayne, now the jokes on you. Good job guy…

  • Worley

    Lil’ Wang is a sign of the times. Dress bullsh*t in something shiny and it will sell. His fans MUST be mostly women and children. They like that sort of thing.

  • louie mo

    “KanYe is doing R-n-B now”

    it’s about time you admitted that shit……..

  • P-Matik

    @Worley
    Yeah I think it is just women and kids cuz I don’t know many grown men that think he’s nice like that. This drop was bangout and brings up good points. Wayne has mastered being an attention hog amidst not having any real talent. Straight up though, how many pop stars have real talent? You think Paula Abdul is relevant because she can hit all octaves?

    • nellz

      he obviously has talent…and is probably the best entertainer in hip hop..i think that right now its “cool” to like lil wayne now…like it was “cool” in 03 to like 50 cent..like it was “cool” to like Eminem in 2000.
      And I can name plenty a “pop star” with talent

    ^^^ Yes, but that experienced doctor was also once a first timer.

    I disagree with your tone, but for the most part I agree with just about everything you said. Wayne as a rock star is wayyy more interesting than Wayne as a rapper at this point.

    i think i’m the last nigga alive who things wang is nice as fuck on the mic.

    and *dead* @ the last paragraph!

    • these posts are racist

      My comments have not been allowed to post on Billy X Hater’s blog…so I’ll try again.

      Wayne is nice on the mic…a beast of an emcee. Billy is a hater (hence my comments rarely get let through on his blogs).

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    Sear XXL moderator, I see the TPAR comment that is still in unapproved status (for whatever reason) Please release that bullshit comment.

    I wish TPAR left comments worth reading. Its like this fag complains that there is some conspiracy against him when the nigga deposits ONE sentence comments.

    NIGGER PLEASE!?!

    This is what happens when you are raised by your grandmomma. You become a bitchmade commenter

    • these posts are racist

      I hardly call our back and forth where I used to school you on Africa deposits of “one setence comments”. In any event, I’m not an “N” word, don’t call me that. My grandfather used to get called that and my ancestors were called that when they were forced to work for free…their wives were raped and their babies sold. So, I’m not an “N” word, I’m a proud human being.

      Also, not that i consider it a badge of honor, but I was raised by both my parents but know plenty of people raised by their grandparents who turned out just fine.

      Finally, Wayne puts out a lot of material, some of which is horrible, much of which is hot. It’s subjective my brother, subjective. Also to say that at age 12 a boy growing up in the same ward as Wayne did in the NO didn’t see some ish that would make a great story is just not true. For those of us who grew up rough (i grew up in the projects, in Chicago), we know that much of the bad we experienced in our life happened to us or we witnessed it from ages 5-17. I experienced enough by the time i was 12 to write two books and five rap CD’s.

      Will this comment get posted?

        still a nigger tho…

        • these posts are racist

          Bobby,

          You are a coward racist who would never say that to my face. In fact you wouldn’t say it to anyone’s face. Bobby, I have an ivy league education and (without bragging too match) have a job that pays for my health insurance. You have a child that you have admitted you cannot provide for…what does that make you?

          Please Bobby, define “Nigger”.

        • BIGNAT

          i wanna know you seem like a pretty smart person do you know where the word nigger comes from? i do but let me see what your thoughts are because it seems that. you got some form of elitist attitude in your comments back to what anybody has to say to you.

        • FlapJack

          dunno if that was aimed at me, because how in the hell do I seem like a smart person right?

          Still, it’s a mispronounciation of negro, which is spanish for black

          how the word is such a big deal is beyond me

        • BIGNAT

          nah thats not it homie also it was to tpar you don’t have a elitist attitude

        • FlapJack

          School us then?

          TPAR is allways on some race-shit. Maybe his all-white colleagues treat him like the Kunta Kinte he tries so hard to distance himself from.

    TPAR,
    I got some news for you. If all the white that comment on this site are niggers (and they surely are) then what makes you think you aren’t a nigger too.

    I don’t mind being a nigger either. I don’t have to live in the fantasy world either. You see all these niggers getting played like fools by this dude Madoff?

    These niggers thought that they were special but they weren’t at the end of the day. They were suckers to the scam. This money shit is fake. It is based on what? Gold? Nope, its based on nathan.

    Your ivy league education got you buying into the idea that some institution holds the key to higher learning and success. You have been coming here for the past two years to get something more valuable than what them ivy leagues could offer.

    Y’all come here to get your soul given back to you. Well that day is coming to an end so you better get your fill before its all gone.

    • these posts are racist

      Typical Billy – create a false argument then beat it. I never argued my ivy league education held the key to higher learning or success nor did i claim there is a road to a rosey life.

      I am not a “Nigger” because I am not one. I don’t believe in the word, I hate its history and refuse to be called one. I wasn’t a Nigger when I was living in the Robert Taylor Homes in Chicago, I wasn’t a Nigger when I was studying in the law library at my ivy league school and I’m not a Nigger when I’m sitting here typing this comment.

      You see how quickly Bobby, a white racist used the word against me? That’s what the word is…

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    TPAR,
    Your problem is that you let a nigger call you a nigger.

    That word is used to describe someone who is only used for menial labor.

    What is heeeelarious to me sometimes is that people have allowed a disrespect to creep in for those that do menial labor and farmwork. These people control the HEALTH of our nation.

    Do you see what happens when some vegetable pickers get irate? How can people disrespect the ones that bring the food to their mouths?

    But that is a function of white’s programming. If you were a sharcropper and you sent your child off to med school your child would be reminded by the racists that no matter how educated he would only be a nigger.

    Nevermind the fact that the doctor would eventually create methods for treating the diseased hearts those racists had in their bodies.

    OGBJ calls you a nigger to hide the fact that HE is the nigger. And you sit there upset by it. You should laugh to yourself if you knew history and knew the about how Europeans too poor to leave their continent treated each other.
