I hate that it took Meek Mill’s foolish tweets to get me back blogging. But this whole foolish beef between him and @drake has put a spark back in the game of social media. So, for the longest all we had to look forward to was the reality show tweets, new albums, boyfriend/girlfriend drama, NBA finals, lame award shows, “break babies” and all the other b.s that floods Twitter and Instagram daily.
Boy has the rap game changed over the years. Men use to rap about the dope game and women with big butts. Female emcees would talk about designer labels and fashion designers. Lately there is a new trend. Men are name dropping labels and high-end fashions in their songs. Rappers like Future, Kanye West, T.I., 2 Chainz and Jay-Z are talking about designers that I can’t even pronounce let alone afford. (Margiela) I know some of the labels the rappers are sporting are knock-offs, but just the fact that they know about them intrigues me. I think it’s a fad and probably won’t last too much longer, but I can say that it is very impressive and is definitely a good look, fellas.
Something’ ’bout Mary she gone off that Molly
Now the whole party is melted like Dhali
Now everybody is movin’ they body
Don’t sell me apartment, I move in the lobby

So, I’ve been hearing a lot about this new drug, Molly for months now. What is it and what is the big deal with it? In short, Molly is the powdered form of the pill Ecstasy. It can induce a feeling of euphoria and intimacy towards others. News outlets have described Molly as the suburban drug of choice. Officials say the drug is often found in and around college campuses. But I’ve heard it was all over L.A. during the B.E.T. Awards. (Go figure) They say the drug is addictive alone but once mixed with cocaine it is highly addictive and dangerous. Molly goes for about $15 a hit which makes it more popular among college students. It gives the users a feeling of euphoria which they typically call “rolling”. This drug seems to have a suburban and college student appeal to it. This is one drug I hope doesn’t find its way to our ‘hoods!
I will be the first to admit, the BET Awards this year really impressed me. In the past, the awards were always so well…….ghetto. Of course all of the stars would come out, but it was so poorly put together. I know it’s Black Entertainment Television, but it’s not a crime to at least ask some white folks for a little advice on putting together a good show. The performances weren’t as exciting as past years. The top three in my book were Diddy-Dirty Money (Puffy is an entertainer, he knows how to put on a show), Eminem (it was a tie with him and T.I., but Em was focused), and the surprise of the night El Debarge (I thought he was locked up or something). I’ll give Alicia Keys honorable mention. I was on the edge of my seat when she crawled up on that piano.
I have to give BET their props for letting Chris Brown perform. Compared to the last minute, wack Michael Jackson tributes last year, Chris deserved this. After the trouble he got himself into with Rihanna, it would have been too soon to perform at the 2009 awards. I don’t think America was ready to forgive and embrace Chris. But after all his begging and boo-hooing via Twitter, a lot of people wanted Chris to be given a second chance. After all, we forgave Kobe, Michael Vick, T.I., and R.Kelly. His performance was the best I have seen. But it wasn’t his dancing that everyone was talking about. It was the pain he was going through trying to get out the words to ‘Man In the Mirror’. This was his chance to let everyone see the anguish he has been living with the past year. This was the stage he needed to ask for forgiveness. This was the night that his career was resurrected!
The 2010 BET Awards is on 2nite and red hot with performances, awards and who knows what the hell else. BET award shows are never put together as well as MTV award shows are. Anything can wrong from stage malfunctions, to people in the bathroom when they’re supposed to be presenting. Queen Latifah will host, Jay Z, Kanye West, T.I., Legend, Prince, and Justin Bieber will perform.
This will be a comeback performance for West and T.I. This is West’s first show since bum rushing Taylor Swift, and T.I.’s first show since his release from prison last December. Legend will receive the Humanitarian Award and Prince (or the artist formerly known as) will take home BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award, can’t wait for that.
Nominees include Jay Z, Beyonce’, Alicia Keys, Trey Songz, Melanie Fiona and whoever else BET throws into the mix. Be sure u check this one out. We’ll talk later.
Suge Knight still blames Kanye West for failing to provide proper security at a party West hosted in Miami in 2005 prior to the MTV Video Music Awards. Gunshots were fired inside the venue and the bullet struck Suge in the leg, destroying his femur bone. Suge called a meeting recently to resolve the matter, but Kanye wasn’t havn it. Suge had his attorneys and Kanye had his.
After a very brief meeting, Kanye and his attorneys walked out, and Suge is still left with over $200,000 in medical bills from the incident. Taking into consideration that Suge is in debt up to his shiny bald head – he owes the IRS a small fortune in back taxes, as well as other creditors trying to collect on his bad debts, the $1,000,000 he’s suing Kanye for won’t even buy him a newspaper.
