Full Circle – Kaboom, Guess Who Stepped in the Room

To be honest, this should have happened back in 2007.

Before the relocation to New York, before the website started, before everything, I was just a snot-nosed commenter around these here parts. A couple mentions from former scribe here Tara Henley, and before I knew it I was virtually a signature away from terrorizing this segment of the Internets.

Ultimately things didn’t turn out the way they planned, and I ended up under the boot of a rival website before starting this little thing with my homeboy Shake known as 2DopeBoyz in 2007. The rest is history.

To be honest, I’m not sure if I can even keep up the pace as my now-current coworker of sorts Mr. Crawford, much less still spew the same venom I did back during my “Slap-Boxing With Jesus” days. Back then, a quasi-retarded White guy was running the country, and I was living in California as a professional coffee maker. Nowadays, a Halfrican runs the country, and I live in New York as a vagabond.

Guess some things still haven’t changed.

Regardless, I’m very excited to be here, and I’m eager to see the type of negative responses I receive during my duration here. That, at the very least, reassures me (and more importantly, the people who are paying me to do this) know that I’m doing something right. It may have taken a couple years, and this section is admittedly far past its prime, but now I get to see my words placed on the very same site the had such luminaries as Maurice Garland, Sickamore, DJ Drama, Elliott Wilson, Shakur, Chamillionaire, OJ Da Juiceman, Drumma Boy, Nipsey Hu$$le, Termanology, my former compatriot over at DX Charlamagne, that guy behind “Fashion Forward” and more. Excelsior!

See, if there’s anything to be learned, it’s that eventually all things will come full circle. I started off as a c-boy, now I run my own block. Now let’s see how much shit I can get away with, similar to the Catholic church and their penchant for cherry popping altar boys, before I get fired from the house of Harris faster than you can say “Ha!”

Wish me luck.

    Welcome, Meka.

    I know this will be more than just ‘Civilized Talk.’

  • Meka

    > I appreciate you answering not 1 of my emails. >

    that could be because your music sucked, your question was stupid, or both.

    • http://www.slipnslideworld.com Sean W

      Actually Meka, my music didnt suck and I didnt ask you a question. I know that you are probably very busy, as many of us in this industry are but you post quite a bunch of material from Slip-N-Slide Records (Rick Ross, Trina, Plies, Jagged Edge) which is the company I work for, and Im not sure if you have a relationship with anyone here but I do know that I tried reaching out to you a few times bc I respect your grind and I respect how you have built up your site in a matter of a couple of years and am still a huge fan of 2dopeboyz. A reply telling me that the music wasnt really for your audience or whatever the reason might have been wasnt required, but it would have been nice reading that in an email and not in a comment box on xxlmag.com. Its all good though, at least you replied this time lol… Hopefully, the next time I shoot something to you I could get a reply just letting me know the deal. Talk soon.

    Was there a point to this post that I missed? You just did a blog stating that you are going to start a blog… And not to nitpick but if you’re going to be paid for doing what any other sarcastic nerd with an oversized ego can do (no shots, I am one too) you should at least pretend that you’re taking it half serious and clean up your typos/grammatical errors.

    That being said, I enjoy your website and look forward to seeing what you have to say

    My vote..less Nicki Minaj, more Lil’ B and Hell Rell, with the video for Thugnificent & will.i.am’s “Dick Riding Obama” video at the end of each post.

    -drops note in suggestion box and puts on “I VOTED” sticker-

    Hey Meka, you’re a bitch made fool! Your ego is bigger than Kanye’s girl’s ass, and you consistently show you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about. Go back to sucking your sped-up-soul-sample-sounding-lip-ring-rocking-white boyfriends dick, you fucking faggot.

    Oh, and whoever paid you to make a blog post about starting blogging should be curb stomped.

  • bitchslap
