Meet Shakur

What’s good! It’s your girl Shakur. For those who don’t know me I was the lead in Drake’s “Best I Ever Had” video and I’m the Eye Candy for the September issue. As well as an upcoming rap artist.

I’m constantly on the move and grindin’ like some bad breaks! Sleeping is the cousin to death, so I make sure to stay productive and keep things pushin’. It’s essential to do so, while I have my youth. I’m a jack of all trades…ur modern day renaissance woman. I started in the entertainment industry when I was about 13 yrs old, doing commercials and print work. My momma pulled me out of the entertainment world because she wanted me to focus on my academics. The most imperative thing for her was education. So I continued with my curriculum. I graduated at 15 with a full ride academic scholorship to a university. I had a major in bio med and a minor in business. Yes folks, I was going to college to become a Neurologist (brain surgeon).

After a few years, I realized my passion was still in entertainment and being in front of the camera. So I got back into the industry. I’ve been studying film and theatrics under private coaching, as well as modeling, and being a rap artist. My single drops in a week or so. It’s featuring and produced by the musical genius will.i.mm. It’s entitled “Nada Hoe.” It’s on a real Euro, urban, pop, London swag. It’s definitely a club banger and ear candy. So make sure ya’ll listen out for it! I’ll be on here blogging this week, giving u a piece of me so u can get to know me a lil, so feel free to holla. Ciao!—Shakur

    Aw, shit. This is too easy…somebody else do this for me…

    –OG Matt Herbz–

    • http://Pierzy11@gmail.com Pierzy

      Herbz, I’m with you.

      This is just……ugh.

      • EReal

        So you just decided, oh, screw that whole neurologist thing, I’d much rather be an objectified piece of ass in some retard with no record deal’s mixtape video.
        I bet your Egyptian daddy was REAL happy about that one.

        • BIGNAT

          wow ereal you put just about everything that was in my brain down about that article.

      • http://www.bboycult.com www.bboycult.com

        @Pierzy, @Herbz…

        leave Shakur alone. she obviously, like most women, is confused. or maybe i should say she just need some guidance in her life.

        cause even if she was cast as the lead, we all know Rosa Acosta was the star. sorry, toots, tits or whatever fits…

        if her handlers thought this was a way to capitalize off Drake’s saturation, by tryin to knock, who the internets have already chosen, on some underhanded shit, yall lookin real raggedy. like, “it should be me!” “she’s not as pretty as i am!” i done hit enuff fly chicks to know estrogen when i smell it. at least be 1 hunnit about it! so what’s next? the beef? yall gone battle? u better be cool. Rosa is Dominican. she may speak Spanish, but that’s a black girl. and because she’s not tryin THIS hard, is why we fuck wit her.

        blogs by nature mean that an individual has to be predisposed to reading. so a Black Beat fluff story circa when Biggie said it was all a dream is unfitting. it’s almost insulting. ‘specially if u ever took the time to actually READ who the fuck is on here. an MBA candidate, proud fathers, a studio owner, as well as some well versed and well informed individuals in the subtleties of the culture; regionally, nationally, past eras or now. so let me put it to you like a real nigga know how to; when folks don’t choose to fall in, at some point, they usually fall out.

        see, i don’t mean you no harm. u look like somethin i used to touch regularly. ur gorgeous. i’d definitely holla at u in the street. and the neurologist thing would make me wanna have real conversation with you. but if this blog was that conversation, i’d definitely be more likely to just wanna hit. so on that note, thanks for the picture.

        i believe u when u say you Nada Hoe. so believe me when i say, you Nada Blogger. Silly Willy may be a nice guy and give you the pat on the head and tell you, “don’t try too much”. but judgin on where you gettin your beats from, he, as well as the rest of us will probably be on here sayin, that you Nada Rapper either.

        now air it out…

        • Silly Willy

          @ bboycult

          At least, to your credit, you had a smooth way to put it. I’m a nice guy like that, so it’s all good.
          As you so eloquently put it, it’s a pat on head, but definitely not a blank check. I’m just not ready to say something I can’t take back, because if it turns out good, obviously I’ll enjoy it. Let’s just say I’m a half-full glass kind of man…….Just don’t disappoint me…….now that’s 1 hunnit!

      • Mark Ward

        I’m jut a guy who always has time to be one of the first 5 people to respond to everything posted on xxl, I know I’ll hate on the model chick who’s on TV. Might as well it’ll be the only chance I’ll have to talk to a girl like that

  • Silly Willy

    Pierzy!!!

    Good luck, Shakur ! Welcome and, you know, just be yourself and don’t try too much, we’ll learn to know you in the long run !

    At least there’ll be no need to ask for a naked picture, we’ll just have to check that vid on rotation!

    • Silly Willy

    Other than that…. I gives a fuck

  • The Hate

    “I’m constantly on the move and grindin’ like some bad breaks!”

    Well, while you were studying Neurology, you obviously weren’t studying English, because “breaks” should be “brakes.”

    But I guess the only “brake” that was important for you was when the doctor “broke” your skin to inject the saline…

    Good luck with your wrap career!

  • Moving Sideways

    Dear Brain Surgeon,

    It’d be way too easy to just start hating on you without giving you the benefit of a couple posts. I understand this first one is an introduction, and while you kinda came off as a shallow, self-promoting celebutante — I’ll let this slide for now.

    You have four more days to show and prove. Graduated at 15? Full academic ride to become a neurologist? Your posts better be well-written, free of grammatical errors, and have some insightful industry substance.

    As a matter of fact, Ms. Doogie Howser, the rest of your posts should have a blue background with white type.

    Please don’t disappoint,
    Moving Sideways

      If it is, it’s not a very funny joke.

      @ Ron Mexico
      as i was reading this and it got more ridiculous the only thing i kept thinking was, “Ron is gonna have a field day with this bullshit”.
      fire when ready Mr. Mexico.

  • HM

    For the record, Shakur, a neurologist (which doesn’t require a capital “N”) is not a brain surgeon. A neurologist is a doctor that specializes in disorders of the central nervous system. They are not trained surgeons. Neurosurgeons are “brain surgeons”. The two careers require different training.

    I think we can all breath a sigh of relief that you won’t be operating on anyone any time soon.

    Ah, and spelling your producer’s name wrong? Not recommended.

    • Around and Around

      This has to be a joke…considering HM’s comment.

      You don’t go to undergrad and study to become a brain surgeon…you go to undergrad study to actually get into med school, when in med school you try and excell and then HOPEFULLY you match in a residency program, then after residency you’d have to HOPEFULLY match in probably a Neuro feloowship and then further into a brain surgeon fellowship.

      -That may not be the exact route, but it’s not that far from that.

    Hey all you perfect scholars, sometime people make grammatical mistakes, She didn’t say she was an English major, ask a Doctor to draft a writ of habeas corpus or a Lawyer to define the function of your endoplasmic reticulum. Better yet one of you hating ass critics define them. Let’s see just how intelligent you are, since it appears ya’ll are so perfect.

    Graduated at 15?..damn…one word of advice…don’t worry about these lame niggas on here hatin for no reason…they’re always like that to anyone who’s not a lame ass nigga..some of em are real closet homo’s…normally I wouldn’t leave a comment like this…but the negativity here was too thick and unwarranted.

    • Detroit P

      Irony?

  • abdulnasir

    Please tell me you didn’t have a brain surgeon joke reading this! lol!

  • abdulnasir

    “Nada hoe”! ha ha ha ha! Pierzy,what u make of all this? U seem clearly disappointed. What if “Nada hoe” blows up?

    • http://Pierzy11@gmail.com Pierzy

      If she blows (up), then she blows (up) but that doesn’t mean I want to read her blog. Soulja Boy blew (up) but I wouldn’t take time to read his thought(s), either.

      I also take offense to the idea that if I don’t agree with something, I don’t understand business. I’m 95% done with my MBA from a top tier school and I work in finance so I perfectly understand business. It’s like with movies – Michael Bay films have zero dialogue and make tons of money. That’s good business…but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.

      If Shakur [word to 'Pac] can do her thing, then I congratulate her but that’s not what I’m looking for.

      This is Hip Hop On A Higher Level? Really?

  • El Tico Loco

    Nada Hoe? Nada dam thing made sense. But on her defense she is hot and the whole time I was reading I visualized her typing the blog with her nipples (thus the typos yet impressive for forming words while jiggalin,jiggalin over the keyboard).

    • Silly Willy

      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  • Silly Willy

    Come on guys !

    Let her at least make a real dumb post before going all out. I mean, just because she’s an eye candy don’t have nothing to do with hiphop knowledge. Let’s let her proove that she’s worth something. If she ain’t, she ain’t, then start the hate. If she is, respect due. But wait and see….

    I’m familiar with the type of writing of every bloggers here for a while now. When I came here first, it was hard for me to understand that the bigotry, self-derision and affected douchery of Bol is just a canvas to expose some points that are more than valid, in a sarcastic way. I had to give it a while but I finally got it, and I can enjoy it now and then. In the meantime, the reason why I came back to XXL was Tara Henley because I felt she had something to say……and she was a woman…..a white woman……a white woman from Canada……how eff’d-up is that?

    Let’s just let her do her thing, if she fails, move in for the kill, if not, what more can you ask for?

  • abdulnasir

    i guess u’r right silly willy, mayb we shld give her a chance. i used to hate bol too 4rm the beginning, but let’s face it, skyzoo did set the bar for guest bloggers and he actually has a rap career, not abt to start one.

    • Silly Willy

      The X-spot trifecta (Bol-Dallas-Mexx) got this blogging ish on lock, but I think Skyzoo’s guest was on another planet. I’m with you, it sets the bar high…….Then again, not so long ago, Joe Budden had a column, so……why not Shakur? I’m just saying…..

      • $ykotic/Don McCaine

        So you guys noticed it’s almost 50 comments and she ain’t even talk it yet!

    Why does she always look surprised?

  • Brooklyn

    1st off, if i got a full academic scholarship to a university there’s no way in the hell i’d give that up just to be a video ho for some mediocre canadian rapper. brain surgeon (ha!)neurologist, whatever the hell she was trying to be, they probably make more dough than she’s gonna see. 2nd, she reminds me a bit of kim kardashian, but i don’t know whether she got a big ass or not because i never saw that drake video. but anyway, the way the music industry is right now, she’ll probably do very well, even better if she makes a sex tape with a mediocre r&b singer. she’ll probably get her whole clan a reality show after that.

    Heh heh.

    Nah, really though. Shakur, if this were FHM or Maxim, the caliber of users would be kind of different. The problem is that you basically talked about yourself so adamantly, & we come here for Hip Hop.

    So, in no way were any of these “attacks” personal, per se, this just isn’t the forum for a list of accolades & accomplishments that seem more self-serving than informative. Congrats on all the progress you’ve made in your life though, but how about you tell us about your favorite artists, or some stand-out hip hop memories, or what artists have you met who were cool, or how you feel about females (or the lack of) in hip hop, etc.

    It’s not hard to herd us into a topic, hell, all you have to do is give us something to think about & we (the commentors [Commission!]) can take it from there. But, you have to meet us halfway.

    I’m sure you have plenty of stories that we would find interesting, or anecdotes that pertain to the industry, so please, share.

    I doubt you have thin-skin, being in this business, so don’t let this get to you. This is how we operate. Business, never personal.

    Good luck, & don’t be afraid to jump on the thread & tell niggas how you feel. We respect that kind of shit around here.

    Good luck. Four days left…..

      How much do you know about neurologists and neurosurgery? They are oftentimes the smartest people in med school along with radiologists. By saying that, she automatically implied that she was that smart.
