F*ck Me For Free

So that’s how it feels to get your post pulled at XXL. Perhaps I should hit up my esteemed, long-tenured colleague here for advice on how to go about things here when that happens.

Is the life of a rapster really that difficult? The way some people describe it you’d think that it’s one of the worst jobs in the world, continuously working on your craft in the hopes that you’ll be able to turn a profit on your talents, constantly being on the road performing the same songs over and over in random-ass places across the nation, trying to convince that nation of millions to buy your products and the like. It can’t be as awful as, say, working a desk job that you do not enjoy for trivial pay that greatly and demeaningly undervalues your actual worth.

If any rapper truly believes that bullshit, then I have these magical beans for sale. Let’s keep it real, though: most, if not all, of us would quickly punt a woman knee-deep into her third trimester and slap our own grandmother to live one day in Jay-Z’s shoes, sexual perks with his wife and all. Most importantly, it provides most rapsters with the opportunity to avoid doing the same dumb shit that has some of them with a résumé of extracurricular activities sponsored by the federales.

So why is it, then, that rappers continue to do the same dumb shit that lands them back under the watchful eye of the police? I mean, is street credibility still a major factor in the Internets age? In an era when the next big star is one YouTube video or reality show appearance away, the period of street smarts is all but nonexistent now. Furthermore, a rapster is (relatively) rich enough to, if need be, hire some goon from the block to do the dirty work instead.

It’s why I always take solace in the fact that, while I’ll probably never be able to afford same lavishly gaudy chain decorated with the glossiest of blood diamonds mined from the finest of African land, I also know that I would never put myself in dumb situations that will ultimately have the authorities tearing apart the two-bedroom mansion I share in the middle of Harlem for weed, guns and – most importantly – hoes, a la Waka Flocka’s crib earlier this morning. For a rapper who gets criticized heavily for being the harbinger of ineptitude in rap, this could be perceived as an ironic case of art imitating life should Waka actually be dumb enough to (allegedly) run a prostitution ring from his own home. I mean, in today’s hip hop world where there’s an nationally known, infamous task force dedicated to keeping an eye on high-profile rapsters, the last thing one should ever want to do is get caught with dirt on their persons. Ask T.I. if riding around shining with ecstasy in Los Angeles was a great idea after he’s finished celebrating another X-Mas, New Year’s and birthday with the same shower buddies he celebrated with a year prior.

I do hope that Waka figures a way out this mess he made (no, seriously). Otherwise, whom else can we listen to in clubs that will incite a riot?

    I’ma keep it 100. That last post held no weight fam. Just like I stated in that comment, that would be like not coming to see you DJ (u were just in Seattle right?) because I don’t like your blog style. A ain’t got sh^t to do with B. I come here and dart a lot of these blogs because I saw you and dP in that conference and u were kicking some real ish…then u come here and lay Lego bricks on a solid foundation.

    Dom stop hate’n, this was a good write up

      1. IT’S D-O-N

      2. did u even read my comment to see what I said? IF U DID U WOULD KNOW I SAID NOTHING about this thread…

      MEKA REVIEWED AN ALBUM BASED ON HIS FEELINGS AND MEDIA ASSESSMENTS. WHICH SONGS DID HE NOT LIKE? HE NEVER NAMED ONE. YET I SAW THE 2DB COMMENTS WHERE 90% OF THEM PRAISED HIM FOR “STICKIN IT TO THE MAN”. WILL HE TELL Y’ALL WHETHER OR NOT THE PULLED POST IS DEDUCTED FROM HIS NEXT MONTHS PAY for y’all to co-sign?

      I’M TELLING SON HE’S BETTER THAN WHAT HE COMES OFF AS. WHAT REASON BEYOND SOME PRESS DID HE TELL YOU LAST TRAIN AIN’T COOL. WHICH SONGS? IS HE MAD ‘CAUSE OF WHAT ESKAY SAID THE OTHER DAY?

      DID YOU EVEN LISTEN TO LTTP TO DEFEND MEKA?

      I’M RIDING FOR THE MUSIC. POSTINGS LIKE YESTERDAY ARE ONE OF THE REASONS WHY CATS DON’T PUSH UNITS. Y’ALL IMMEDIATELY TAKE SIDES OFF OF TANGENTS. AND MEKA DON’T HAVE ENUFF TIME IN HIS DAY TO REALISTICALLY LISTEN TO A FULL ALBUM…THIS SH^T IS A BUSINESS TO HIM, NOT A LOVE FOR THE ARTFORM, FUX YOU TAKING SIDES FOR?

      AND LIKE I SAID ABOVE, WE ALL HAVE A RIGHT TO BOYCOTT MEKA’S DJ GIGS ON THE STRENGTH OF HIS XXL BLOGS…TREAT THEM HOW YOU WANNA BE TREATED.

      AND I AIN’T RIDING FOR PUFF BUT I AIN’T GONNA SAY THE ALBUM AIN’T DECENT. THAT’S HATING CLOWN.

        i read LTTP review myself and found it nothing but biased. meka needs to get his mind right, and if you’re gonna trash the album, at least do it without a blog filled with ad FOR THE GOTDAMN ALBUM.

        peace.

    damn, get all the facts before you start blogging. Wacka nor Gucci got arrested, just to other niggas that was there for a less than an ounce of weed. The guns they found were obviously registered or dude woulda caught a gun charge. some nosey white person probably called the cops cuz they saw different females and niggas coming and going, and assume they was up to no good.

  • Kirby

    Lol @ “some nosey white person”. That’s ignorant.

    • Midas Touch

      No it’s not ignorant.

      Though it’s not canonical..It’s pretty accurate when/if behavioural patterns are considered…as white people are the ones that usually/most likely to act like that if they see ”different females and niggas coming and going” out of a house.

    Isn’t a blog specifically supposed to reflect one’s feelings about a certain topic? Of course it’s biased, just like an op-ed piece in your local newspaper is biased from the perspective of the writer. The “op” in op-ed stands for “opinion”. Where’s the problem in expressing one’s opinion in a blog? Some of you sensitive niggies here could really use a hug. Bring it in.

    ‘I mean, is street credibility still a major factor in the Internets age?’

    In a skewed senses yes!! the fans scream out that they want their fave rapper to be real, yet in reality its far from it!!

    and whats street credibility anyways??? is it being a drug dealer?? is it gang banging? is it killling people? or is it being in the hood, looking after yourself and kids while hustling your music on the side??
