Krix Ex, Me & Rakim.

TwitThis


Kris Ex bigged me up in this month's XXL for my What if Rakim Had the Internet post from last June.

On June 10 of this year, Hummingbyrd, the mind behind a blog called Model Minority (modelminority.blogspot.com), asked, “What if Rakim had the Internet?” Among the answers she provided to her own question, Hummingbyrd stated that if Rakim had the Internet in 1990, his Long Island–based DJ and producer, Eric B., could have e-mailed beats to West Coast fire demon Ras Kass; video-sharing site YouTube would have made MTV obsolete; there would be a Web-based distribution network for hip-hop artists; and hip-hop publications, such as the one you’re reading now, would not have become the premier outlet for rappers to air their grievances with their peers. “I think that people like us,” wrote Hummingbyrd, “who adore music from the backpack, boom-bap era, would have a constant cycle of music to listen to and tours to attend.”
Shits. Hot right!?!?! I remember beefing w/ gotty and a couple of cats at his sight about this very topic.

I am working currently working on a summary of what I have learned from Y'ALL about the Karin/Carmen/Video Vixen's.

================

Peep the bullets fly during the Sean Bell Shootin.

I wonder if Ray Kelly will resign before May.


===============

That new Nas is so nasty. I am officially a Nakel stanlesha.

Jesus.

Is it legal for them to be married, cute and so talented?

===============

Im bloggin from Oakland next week family. Gyyyyeah. O7 here we come!

===============

Angelina is really not a womans woman and needs to sit down and
get some therapy. How you gone admit outloud that you don't like hugging people. Life is too short to a.) be going through it like that b.) to be advertising it.

Although she keeps up with mom Marcheline Bertrand, Jolie said she doesn't allow many people into her inner circle.

"I don't trust anyone," Jolie admitted.

"I don't think it's a good thing. This is going to make you think that maybe I should get some therapy, but trust is such a bizarre word. I'd like to say that I trust my mother, but I also don't know if she might do something that she thinks is in my best interest.

Still, "I trust Brad will never do anything," she said.

But after a few moments, Jolie then added, "I don't know. I don't trust anybody completely."

Jolie said she won't wear emotions on her sleeve - because it wouldn't do her any good.

"It's not going to accomplish anything to cry. It's not going to help you to get a hug!" she said.

"I'm not a hugger. People make fun of me. It's something that I have a hard time with. If someone hugs me, I hold my breath. Snuggling, cuddling, hugging, crying . . . all that stuff makes me very uncomfortable."

Except when it comes to her kids, the star said.

"Oh, I love hugging my kids," she quickly added. "It's a different thing because you feel such a genuine grab from them."


Plus she playing a BLACK WOMAN IN HER NEW MOVIE. Smacks teeth rolls eyes, listens to Lord Willin', louder!
When we get to play white women. Let me KNOW something yall?

=================
Wow.

Hummingbyrd said...

Hi Neo.

Looks like your trigger finger got stuck ock.


Think I might have to do a review of the NAS.

Its so beautiful.

It ain't no ilmatic. But trust,
why people gone hold an artist up to a standard that they themselves would collapse under?

He was born to make that record.

Now he just living his life.

Oh. The movie is about Daniel Pearl, that journalist that got assisinated in Iraq.

His wife is Black. She was preganant when he got killed.

Angie is playing his wife.

Hummingbyrd said...

Vik.

Black republican is filler to me.

The jawns I like is when he talking that grown man sh*t...

"I pray my daughter don't grow up to be like Paris Hilton"
What...what black man talks about parenting on the mike

He talk about n*ggas that stay w/ they hand out cause they ain't shinin'.

There is a whole joint about hip hop where raps in this weird bronx dectective voice...a

And my favorite is a duet w/ Chrisette Michelle....whose Album I would buy tomorrow....her voice is sultry, warm and thorough that samples Nat King Coles Unforgettable.

She's playing a mixed woman. It's not like they cast julia roberts in the role of diana ross or some outlandish shit like that. And let's not bring up that whole one drop rule, cuz we don't need to make kids think like that anymore.
