Irv Gotti Earns My “Facepalm” Of The Day

May 27, 2009

IRV-GOTTI

It’s one thing when people in hip-hop say stupid things. It’s another when the stupid thing is their admiration of others in hip-hop saying stupid things! And that, in itself, is remarkably stupifying. But if anyone was gonna do it, of course it would be Irv “yo career ain’t over, yet?!?” Gotti. When talking to MTV about his feelings on Nas as an artist, Irv had this to say:

“First of all, Nas is my brother — another one of my brothers. But I personally like Nas when he’s ignorant. Whenever Nas gets political or he starts thinking or he wants to change the world, it’s good, but I personally like it more when Nas is on his QB, ignorant n—a sh–. When he’s on [a] ‘Made You Look’ [vibe]. When he’s on his arrogant sh–. When Nas dumbs himself down, he’s nicer to me. I tell him that sh– all the time. … When he’s on some n—a sh–, he’s nicer.”

Now, we could give Irv the benefit of the doubt, and forgive him for articulating his opinion with a poor choice of words, as I’m sure what he meant was that he prefers Nas’ music when he alludes to a grittier persona, reflecting the neighborhood in which he was raised, and managed to survive, in spite of the unsavory elements that inhabited it. But sweet merciful fuck nuts! This is why PR firms are so necessary!

Friday ‘Evening’ Videos: Katy Perry – Waking Up In Vegas

May 15, 2009

I figured this would be fitting, as I’m going to be in Sin City for the next week. I’ve never been, but my friends and family who have assure my that I’ll have the time of my life. May toss a few chips here and there, but I know I’m no high roller. And as you can imagine, my posts will probably be limited based on my internet access. I’ll do my best, though.

My Future Ex-Wife Of The Week: Ida Ljungqvist

May 15, 2009

The first Playboy Playmate of the Year hailing from the motherland certainly is a looker. But she also knows the value of a backup plan, with degrees in fashion design and marketing, with plans to get a Master’s in communications. And she’s already getting experience with divorce proceedings, dumping her lame hubby after less than a year. I’m officially putting my bid in to be Number Two!

You Should Check Out . . . . Egadz

May 14, 2009

I usually hate getting random friend requests on Myspace from music acts, but every now and then, I discover some great new music I wouldn’t have come across otherwise. Case in point, San Francisco beatmaker Egadz. He’s been around for quite some time, but I’m not surprised that I’m only now hearing about him. Elements of hip-hop, techno, drum n’ bass, etc., get spliced together effortlessly on the few songs I’ve heard so far. Definitely need to check out his earlier stuff.
