Favor for a favor
The more I learn about the debate re: whether or not Ozone magazine has a head for interviews policy, the more I’m not sure what to think.
I need to know if it’s true, because if it is, then obviously I need to see about getting myself featured in a future issue of Ozone, but if it isn’t, then I might need to have a talk with Mistah Fab. I can’t just have people saying all kinds of off brand shit about my fantasy girlfriend.
Yep, ladies, let it be known. If you’ve got an especially nice set of cans and a million dollars, Bol is willing to go to bat for you. You might even be able to talk me into listening to some shitty regional rap music.
When I first heard about this, yesterday on Twitter, I figured it was at least somewhat true. Ozone probably doesn’t have an actual policy with regard to oral sex in exchange for access (it definitely isn’t written down anywhere), but Mistah Fab probably heard a story about how some lucky as fuck rapper was coaxed into sitting down for a little Q&A. Otherwise, why would he even mention it?
The fact that Mistah Fab discussing whether or not the owner of a rap magazine blows people for business purposes didn’t strike me as a total non sequitur is a testament to just how overrun hip-hop is with hoo-ers these days. If you notice, most conversations about women in hip-hop do tend to somehow involve sex in exchange for money.
As it turns out, there probably was a reason Mistah Fab just up and decided to suggest that Julia Beverly is a hoo-er. He was probably pissed that an interview she did with him, for one of Ozone’s patented sex issues, recently surfaced on the Internets, and as a result, he’s been bombarded with shade from salty black chicks. In the interview, which I stumbled upon just now over at World Star, Mistah Fab said, amongst other things, that he doesn’t like dark skinted women, but he needs them for record sales.
If you listen to the audio, which obviously you couldn’t in the magazine, it’s obvious Mistah Fab didn’t purposely set out to dis dark butts. It’s just that he used to date a dark skinted woman, back before his career was going as well as it is now, and she was kind of a hoo-er, so now he’s focusing primarily on light skinted women and white chicks.
Yeah, you shouldn’t necessarily disregard an entire group of people based on the actions of one ignorant slut, but the thing is, we don’t know what this woman did to him. It’s like, if you had your nose bitten off by a Saigon whore, and now you recoil a bit any time you see an Asian woman, but you don’t want them to notice, because some of them might like your music.
I can see where Mistah Fab is coming from. But, alas, I don’t have my own magazine – just this dumbass blog. Mistah Fab must have felt that Julia Beverly didn’t frame the issue as well as I could have, thus leading to the onslaught neck-rolling and what have you, and so he decided to retaliate by letting the world know that you can get a blowski for doing an interview with Ozone. The question is: can you?
I’m assuming Fab never received such a deal himself, or else why would be so upset with Julia Beverly. How mad can you be at a woman who gave you a blow job and then ran a feature on you in a magazine? He may have heard about it from Pimp C or somebody, but it would be difficult to prove, both because Pimp C is as dead as doornails, and because how do you go about proving that someone got a blowjob in order to appear in a magazine? You’d probably have to run a black light over one of Pimp C’s fur coats, and even then, how do you know he wasn’t just doing that thing where choke yourself and then jerk off?
The only way we can really know for certain whether or not Ozone has a head for interviews policy would be to send a rapper down there and see if he can get a little service in exchange for a little access. I’m sure pretty much any (straight) rapper could go for some head from the lovely Julia Beverly and some exposure in Ozone magazine (more so the head), but she might be hesitant to offer such a deal, now that the cover has been blown. They might have to go back to charging people to be on the cover.
