Willie D: Not a licensed Apple retailer, it turns out

Speaking of bald headed hoes, here’s a few things that crossed my mind when I read the other day that Willie D got busted for scamming people on eBay:

1) I hope they bury his ass under the jail.

I know it’s not kosher in the black community to wish jail on people, and of course I don’t feel sorry for anyone dumb enough to get scammed by Willie D on eBay… but I fucking hate scammers. As far as I’m concerned, people who try to rip people off the way Willie D supposedly did are way worse than people who just run up on you with a gun and take your wallet or whatever. That goes for eBay scammers, the Africans who send out those emails (is that you, K’Naan?), people who sell Primerica Insurance, so on and so forth. I’ve never even been scammed by anyone. (You gotta have money in order to be robbed.) It just chaps my ass, for whatever reason. No fishsticks. I was watching Bill Maher the other day, and he raised the excellent point that people in this country are much more adamant about trying to rip each other off than people in other countries. I don’t know if it’s capitalism or what. It’s too bad Barack Obama isn’t really a socialist.

2) Willie D must have come up with this one himself.

Or could it be that he clicked on one of those banners on World Star where it says some ignorant-looking kid can teach you how to make $10,000 a month, from the comfort of your own home? I’ll admit, I’ve been tempted to click on those links, just to find out what the actual scam involves. Maybe the Smoking Gun will conduct an investigation. Anyway, who would be dumb enough to cut a check to Willie D, because he needs you to pay him outside the context of eBay, PayPal, etc., which is set up that way precisely so that you don’t get ripped off. I mean, you’d have to think that plenty of people have tried this already, and they probably got busted, too. This crime sounds like some real crackhead shit, in that it’s only a matter of time until you get busted.

3) Willie D is going down for this one.

At MTV News, it says he could get up to 20 years and a $250,000 fine. Not the time or a fine, mind you, in case he actually made any real money from “Mind Playing Tricks on Me.” Even if he did, he can kiss that goodbye. It just goes to show you what happens when you fuck with a TI’s money. Remember that guy who kept going on World Star saying he killed Stack Bundles, and that he was gonna kill Wendy Williams. Of course, no one gave a shit. Then he had the sheer balls to say that he put poison in some baby food, and he was locked up before the weekend was over. I’m pretty sure they threw the book at him, too. To think, Willie D could’ve broken into my house and stole all of my shit (all $1,000 worth), and he probably wouldn’t have even gone to jail. 5-0 around here doesn’t give a shit about anything that doesn’t raise money for local gov’t.

4) It’s too bad Willie D wasn’t prominent enough to get down with a scam that’s legal.

Two words, two syllables: Rush Card. Russell Simmons doesn’t even get out of bed in the morning for the amount of money Willie D was making from those iPhones.

    Willie D is the cleanup man he has to use many cellphones to avoid getting caught by jealous husbands. James Harrison of the pittsburgh steelers is a bald headed hoe for turning down the white house. Your owner was named the ambassador to Ireland by President Obama and you turn down a white house invite.

    “The iPhone, nigga! Did you mail it?!”

    “What” ain’t no country I’ve ever heard of. They got iPhones in ‘What’?”

    “iPhones, muthafucka, do you sell them?”

    willie D was always a hustler.

    I remember hearing about him gettin real money from radio, boxing, promotion and oil refineries in Azerbaijan (however you spell it).

    This is why I was surprised that he fell back on back alley hustle like iPhones.

    I hope he could clear his name and remain an inspiration for young entrepreneurs.

    • Jesus Martinez

      Being a 40 something year old rapper scamming motherfuckers on eBay aint hustling. It’s called being a bitch ass nigga.
      Ima big Geto Boys fan (prefer Scarface and Bushwick Bill anyway) but I hope this cocksucker gets what comin to him.

      There’s goes another reunion to make up for The Foundation.

    Damn, ain’t nothing hardbody about tricking folks.

    It doesn’t even have shit to do with the whole “Robin Hood” theory. He was giving back shit to the poor. Dude was probably just trying to get current on his child support.

    He should’ve BEEN pimped Bushwick out to some sideshow circus.

    & everybody know Nextel is the “ghetto hook-up” phone of choice.

    Chirp-chirp, Willie D.

  • latino heat

    why dosen’t this site fix the funkin comments section!?
    i posted a long ass comment about Willie D being broke because J Prince has been robbing him his whole carer. J Prince robs everybody, but he’s so fuckin gangsta nobody does anything about it.
    J Prince is what Suge Knight tried to be all these years. he’s feared, owns all his masters and is STILL payed after more than 20 years in the game. long live the Prince!

  • BeerGangsta

    Dam! Look over my shoulder, pep around corner. My mind playing tricks on me. Willie D you know better than that shit. When you Rich and Black. Honkeys love to put Rappers on TV when they do shit wrong. I hope you don’t get no time. I need everybody from H-Town to come together and get Willie D out this mess.

  • El Tico Loco

    Was he scammin crippled and crazy senior citizens?

  • dusty boy

    Yall some fuckin’ idiots!!! Can’t yall see that the feds been tryin’ to bury willie d and j prince for years. these are black men speaking the truth and the gov. don’t like that. this is just another lame attempt to jail up another powerful black leader.


    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

      @ dusty boy

      I can’t speak for another individual, but I’m far from a “fuckin’ idiot”. As far as the feds go, they’re over the “shut down the blacks” nonsense. They’re trying to take out nations & world leaders. Bigger fish to fry than two nickel-slick hustlers from the “hood”. & the last time I checked, neither Willie D nor J. Prince were “powerful black leaders”.

      If anyone were the idiot, I’d be more likely to say it was Willie D. He’s well known in his city/state, is a “credible” figure in the hip hop legacy (down south @ least), so tell me what he’s doing commiting idiotic crimes? @ this point in his 40-something year old existence, my dude should be owning small mom & pop stores selling iPhones, if anything, rather than commiting crimes over the internet (which trumps up the charges even more).

      What he’s doing is called “regression”, that makes him the idiot, not me.

      • dusty boy

        Dawg the dude doesnt slang iPhones. I mean really. Yall lame believe that shit. Like I said Fuckin Idiots

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

          @ dusty boy

          That’s the best reasoning you have, yet you started your statement by calling everyone “fuckin’ idiots”?

          Dude, I’m waiting to be enlightened. Tell me something we don’t know, with some validity, not political conspiracy theories.

          Nevermind, lol

        • dusty boy

          you got me Grand$. LOL. Im the fuckin’ idiot. say go to law school homie. you jah good at debates……

  • Amsterdam

    Very poor. Too bad the leeches of this world jump on people in a bad spot. Even worse they make money while doing it.

    If Willie D did this, it is indeed a big disappointment, but who knows what happened.

    If anything he is still a great lyricist.

    Out here in Amsterdam we still support Will. Stay up.

  • Detroit Draper
