Pimp By Blood

I had to laugh when my aunt sent me this YouTube video of Tina Turner... with our cousin Lynda singing backup (in the middle).

I guess bein' bad (meaning good) just runs in the family

Another Green Screen Video for Another Way To Die

They should totally do a remix with Amy Winehouse and green screen her in with the rest of that ish. Wouldn't it be totally rad to see Wino doing the skinny bop against that night desert background?

Hmmm Runway Shows Are Kinda Like Slave Auctions, Aren't They?

It Ain't No Joke -- Black Woman Walking

Sh*t is real..

One of the top reasons I'm glad to be driving these days and not walking -- particularly the streets of NYC

Diesel Hearts pRon

Happy Birthday... Look what those horny guys at Diesel came up with for their 30th anniversary (Oct. 11th). I'm sure it will turn some people off, but eff those people, right? I think it's funny and creative.

Personally I think this might actually be an improvement.

The Word of the Day Is IHopeTheyDidn'tEffItUp

Gotta give it up for the trailer though.

Ed "Mack" McMahon

From CNN: The 85-year-old former “Tonight Show” sidekick will star in two viral rap videos for FreeCreditReport.com, a financial Web site owned by credit bureau Experian. The videos feature McMahon wearing a tracksuit, being chauffeured around Los Angeles in a Cadillac Escalade golf cart and waxing lyrical about his very public financial troubles.

“I knew I could sing the blues, but I didn’t know I could rap,” McMahon said Wednesday. “When I retired, I was famous,” McMahon raps in the video. “I had money and glory/I bought a house for 6 mill/I thought nothing could touch me/Until my credit went south, and debt started to crunch me/Next thing I know, instead of playing gin rummy, I was scrambling just to make ends meet/It wasn’t funny.” After being joined by two scantily clad women, McMahon continues: “Got a bump from the media chumps, but that was temporary/Wife with bad credit was scary, so I got wise/I may have fallen, but I got back up/Now I’m back on the attack, like a ninja swinging nunchucks/I told the haters, ‘Go on, take a hike’/It’s my show now, and I can do what I like.”

Geez. I don't even know where to start. Well I guess enough old black men's dignities have been robbed that I shouldn't feel too bad for Ed McMahon but apparently Ed is so broke he's appearing in a credit report advertisement as a rapping pimp. SMH.

Oh Shit They Didit. Knux Video "Bang Bang"

Where they Mammas at forreal???

I think they stole my heart. All this shit I've been bitching about, everybody makin the same song, same video -- somebody either finally heard me, or figured out a way to channel some actual personality! I like it guys.

Bang! Bang! Official Music Video - The Knux

Hmmm. It don't look like that 'Kast is happening anytime soon, but it sure looks like that void is getting filled anyway.

Go See Your Bubby About Obama

Word to my Hebrew homies...

Watch This: Boaz "Gettin' Mine"

Boaz Bey holds a very special place in my heart, that's why I'm soooo disappointed that Point Blank decided to go with "Gettin Mine" as his first single and make a pretty stereotypical rap video to boot. Believe me when I tell you that this kid is way more special than this drug game video. Hopefully they'll let him showcase his lyrical ability on the next go round. In the meantime, enjoy this "Gettin Mine" video.

I hate the whole nice ride, drug money, fly girl genre of rap videos, but at least they did something a little different with the way this one is shot. I love the colors and the grainy quality.

Kanye Knocks (Alligator) Boots

So far so good...

Pressure is on. Don't drop the ball Kanye.

I hate to say it but I feel like the man is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. His mama died, his engagement got broke off, he beats up the paparazzi,gets arrested and now he's rapping with puppets and releasing an R&B album. I'm praying for you 'Ye.

I'd hate to see him pull a Chappelle.

I LOVE COMMERCIALS - The Kiddie Edition

Mamas, put away your toys!

This one is at least a year old, but somehow I missed it before tonight

Totally reminds me of how I feel when I'm with my girlies...

Jadakiss Hates Myspace and YouTube

... Yet he's more than happy to make his own video on the subject for World Star Hip Hop to post up...

Oh the irony.

Anyway after a few friendly nudges I'm back... Some people might find this ish funny but I just feel like dude is keeping it completely 100.

Why was my mouth watering watching him roll the L?

Liar Liar Pants On Fire

Just spreading the truth. Vote for Obama -- or be broke and without health insurance for another four years.

McCain's Desperate Call To Palin

Hilarious, yet also scary as fu*k at the same time.

Watch This: Medicine For Melancholy

Doesn't this look goooood??? I wanna see it... but is it Love Jones allover again but in San Francisco? Sighs. I miss when I used to go the Bay. Shout out to Stella & Norm, Corey & Courtney, Symone & my namesake Naomi Janee, oh and the guy that took me to Grizzly Peak. I hope this is as good as it looks, I love a good indie flick, esp one with some colored folks in it.

P.S. Timm thanx 4 puttin me on :-p

I Heart Angela Yee

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Sirius Shade 45 DJ Angela Yee -- I always knew she was hilarious but today she gave me even more proof that she has a huge career ahead of her in comedy. Listen to the interview she did with Yung Berg's chain this morning.

Best shit I heard all day! The weekend is off to a great start already!

Watch This: Denzel's Training Day Outtake

Wow. He's obviously experienced in "the holler," that was executed far too well.

Daily Show Does Barack

Rather than poke fun at John McLame or his VP Sarah Failin and her daughter the pregnant teenage alcoholic engaged to a gun totin' redneck, I'm going to follow Obama's wishes and take the high road. Instead, I'd rather share some funny shit from the Daily Show about Barack Obama and why we love him so much:

Hey at least liberals can laugh at ourselves...

My favorite line had to be, "Every time Barack Obama speaks an angel has an orgasm." LOL
