Rap Gaydar…


I apologize for just now learning about the Asher Roth Twitter gaffe from Rutgers University. OMG! Asher Roth is white and privileged?!? Who knew? Who the fuck cares is more like the question? But I’m sure that some of you care. I’m more annoyed that some of you still care that Rick Ro$$ lied on his raplication. None of this rap shit is real. Do you get mad at George Lucas for telling you a story about spaceships? Or do you believe that too?

There is not enough bullets in the world to fill all the make believe guns that rap dudes be shooting. Especially since those bullets are being used to kill Iraqi civilians like it ain’t no thing. The news report said that only 100,000 Iraqis had been killed since the invasion in 2003. That’s a pretty low number if you ask me. The Khmer Rouge killed way more people in way less time and they didn’t even have the depleted uranium and white phosphorus weaponry that we have. Just goes to show you that Asians are way more efficient than Americans.

One of the more popular memes of late in rap music is the ghey rapper storyline. This is expressed in the homo-eroticsim of the imagery and sometimes even the lyrics of rap songs. Some might equate the tight jeans movement with a ghey influence, but I would argue that the semi-naked performer [ll] who is oiled up for pictures is more ghey than someone with snug fitting clothing. Shit, maybe its ALL ghey? And why wouldn’t it be? Think about the people who sign the checks for all of this shit to happen? These are the same dudes that would have their Maybach driver cruise around midtown-Manhattan to pick up a young hustler.

I come from the era when a hustler was a male prostitute. If you were dealing drugs you were a pusher, but if you were selling sexual favors you were a hustler. This is why it always surprised me that rappers my age would call themselves hustlers. I’m like, “For real son, is it really real son?” At night I used to drive up Third Avenue in the forties and fifties and see the young hustlers standing on the corner waiting to get their ride. Them dudes would be clean as fuck too. No facial hair, short ceasar haircuts, sometimes they would have their baby hair waxed. I always wondered what made a dude want to act in this fashion and pull more stunts than that man Action Jackson.

When Chingy’s ex-lover went public this week it was just another incident in a long line of love affairs that rappers have had with chicks with sticks. I wonder what makes transvestites so appealing? I guess its that whole best of both worlds movement that people were making records about. I do admit that RuPaul was sexy to me until I learned he was a man. I guess when you are at the highest echelons of the entertainment industry and everything is faked to death then maybe the realest shit is some dude gripping up on your manhood until you have full release. I’m not mad either that I won’t ever know what that feels like, but I can understand why some folks need that reality.

If there was a fantasy that you could recreate from the rap music imagery that is pervasive through the culture it might be an orgy in one of those painted white seaside villas with the outdoor hot tub for twenty. The bad news for you is that of those six or seven chicks that you and your boys are gonna bang, two of those chicks have dicks. The other bad news is that the remaining girls are lipstick lesbians whose sole intention is to get two fingers inside of your asscrack. The worst news was that you and your homey touched dicks while DP’ing one of those broads and now your homey from forever want to put his tongue in YOUR mouth. This is the reality of your fantasy.

So when some rapper talks about their college experiences you shouldn’t be so dismissive of their credibility. At least they aren’t out here “hustling”.

    I don’t believe anyone that feels the need to over-embellish anything. Like, if I hear some dude claiming he gets head in every verse (“in the whip,” “in the crib,” “on a park bench,” “on a bicycle”) then I think dude is overcompensating for something. I’m not saying…I’m just saying…

    Lets just say Chingy did let the tranny bang him. That might be good for his sells. Only people i know that bought the album was Chick and Gays. Now his core fans can relate till him more. Plus, If they forgive wayne for kissing baby & and lets not talk about eddie murphy… this dude is making kids movie after getting arrested with a tranny. at least its no proof chingy did it.

  • Dallas Penn

    Racist? No. Bigot? Yes. There is a very big difference and I don’t think he any more of a bigot than I am.

    If I were giving a speech at Rutgers and afterwards I got high or drunk and then went on the internets I might have said some shit like… “Just gave new media speech to a group of nappy headed hos”.

    I think that Rutgers can’t escape that association so even if I don’t say it it is still being said and more importantly it is still being thought.

    • Pierzy

      What up Dallas…

      Surprise…I’m actually going to defend your boy here (a little bit). Once I learned he had been at Rutgers, I understood the post. It was still stupid to do, especially since he didn’t preface it by saying he had been there. I don’t know if it was because Twitter only allows so many characters or because he’s dumb but, regardless, once I heard that, it made more sense. This is one case where I believe it was actually taken “out of context” [even though he himself is the one that took it out of that context].

  • Dallas Penn

    I agree with you 1000. If you follow his Twitter feed, and I do, then it all makes sense like Com Sense said, but Asher didn’t use com sense when posting that TWit.

    Should he have realized that people who are anxious to throw him under the bus would jump on that shit? PrA’li.

    I’m not tripping because I want to see white call each other niggers like they used to. Classism >>> racism.

    Where the fuck else should he have been coming from? A Klan rally? Duhhh. It don’t matter where that Dude was coming from, he should have never come out of his face like dat on a fuckin’ tweet yo 4 all the world 2 see ya’ dig. Wrong is Wrong my Ninja. Especially when U just dropped an album dat the Ti’s have been shoving done our throats 4 months that ain’t even selling in the student Union. Dude should have been on his P’s & Q’s like a motherfucker at this point & time. I blame his handlers but Dude is doin’ Hip Hop & reppin’ 4 the streets then he comes outta his face like dat? Asher Rot couldn’t handle the failure of his new Wheat Bread album & tried 2 Murked himself like the CraigsList Killer. He died by suicide if U asked me. R.I.P>Asher but as BoL says. . . I digress:

    I come from the era when hustler meant at football practice that you werentlazy and ran to do something when the coach told you to.

    Phallus Penn, I’m pretty sure that slang can be regional, and have multiple meanings and those meanings can change over time.

    You are stuck in a different time, my friend.

      i think you mean hustle any coach i played they say hustle. in a sense he wants more effort from you. i never heard a coach say you doing real good your a hustler. now a coach will say good hustle out there.

  • Ya Boy

    Dallas Penn may I ask. Why the new alias?

  • Dallas Penn

    Ya Boy,
    I decided to change the column to my name because I was giving credit to the estate of Billy Sunday who ended up being a racist KKK funded preacher. At the end of the day I could be funded by the KKK myself and not even know it so I might as well write under my own name so that when I am Googled my estate grows.

    You are definitely a keyboard coward but I will tell you how NYC streets work. Third Avenue is the route you take to cross the 59th Street bridge. When you are waiting at a red light and you see people that aren’t crossing the street you can assume you are in a red light district. NYC had several red light districts back in the day and this area on the east side was obviously where the hustlers held it down.

    The one thing you learn is that God is in the details. I study mankind and then I write about what I see. Don’t be afraid to look someone in the face or else you might just be a coward

    Master Chode,
    You come from an era when fags squeezed each other’s asses at football practice. Hustler = faggot. Pusher = drug dealer. You can’t rewrite the lexicon. Your favorite rappers have been using code to tell you that they love putting baby powder on old white men’s nuttsachs and their slick wordplay has made them your heroes. Check yourself in the mirror Master Chode, you might be getting your baby hairs waxed next week.

      What’s good Mr. Penn? Personally I missed Billy X. Sunday and his scathing comments replying to the comments section. Whatever name you decide to do your drops under it’s nice to have you back (no homo just in case.

    yup, I am absolutely sure that a word can have more than one meaning. GO FIGURE!

  • What The ?

    All I can say is you sound like a pro ghay sausage swallower and apparently you daydream of one day being Asher Roth’s nut juggler while sailing on his White Pearl, as you will.

    Now answer me this though. Is it actually gayer to advocate homosexuality as a straight man or to actually be gay ? or are you a down-low type ? I see.

    Especially since those bullets are being used to kill Iraqi civilians like it ain’t no thing. The news report said that only 100,000 Iraqis had been killed since the invasion in 2003. That’s a pretty low number if you ask me.

    That 100,000 number may be mare fake then this rap shit…. It’s well over a milly, that shits known.
