Subliminals let off? Maybe. Baddest chick in hip hop with that reggae style? Check! If you from NY, you get used to hearin a lot of accents, and we like to try them on. If you have roots in certain places, even though you may not carry a steady accent you're around enough family and friends to get to a place wher you can rock one with the right attitude. I give Kim her props, she puts on a good effort. I liked a few of he times she's gone there. Foxxy and Nicki both have Trini roots so it's real natural. The Minaj version fell into a pile of cameos that got kinda lost for me. Now to the woman of the post. You kind of forget sometimes about Brown; oh, but what can brown do for you. She's put in time with Sizzla, and Spraga in classic island records, and kills it again on this version of the Gyptian blazer.

Thy say opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. Hopefully this one isn't that crusty and smells decent. They tried to run son for the okey doke. Straight up. His media presence has been a distraction from his music for me. I come from an era where dudes wanted mass appeal, but it was aways best to stay in the underground and keep the crossover. This dude embraces it in almost everything he does. When he dropped the color bomb on the fundraiser, all I could do was laugh. Fuck George Bush, I'm shure in his day people have said alot worse about him. I know it wasn't on this type of platform, in an age like the one we live in; but correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't somebody throw a shoe at this motha fucka? In the country he claimed to have liberated from tyranny? Matt just want him to drop the apology, he wants the exclusive, the mea culpa with the cameras rolling for the big rating. 'Look how I broke him, he embarassed my president, on my network...he's toast'. You can see that dude was emo. Shiiiit I would be too siting up there. I can understand them referencing the Bush clip. Even the Taylor Swift to a degree, but we were there (those of us amused by the bullshit, and those roped in to it by way of our consciousness) we didn't need to see the clip, or hear it. With all due respect, if you're asking the man a question, why do you want to have the audio playing overhead? If the interview is being pre-taped, then why do you need sound, or to cut to the clip anyway? At that point to apologize further when you're not in Bush's face isjust overkill. It's someone who has an opinion and an asshole trying to dig into you when it's none of their business, it's just business.

Son should have peeled from the giddy. Then again, if he did we wouldn't have a glimpse into this fascinating lady's mind. Are alllll white people like that? Maybe not. Are all black people likely to run up on you and take your ish? Probably not. These are the nut jobs that make life so much harder at times. I'll be the first to admit that this chick is wacko, off her meds. Maybe it's too easy to just write off as nutso people, and not what it really is: a world divided in need of some closure. As a kid I would have thought that a black president would make things better and fairer, but it has exposed how simple national conversation can be, and what's really on people's minds. Ehhh, maybe they'll get it in the next 60-80 years.

As I'm sure most people would. I found this clip hilarious. Shows what a marriage can be like when you're with the right person, and you can laugh at each other and keep it 100. A lot is being made the last few days over statistics that show 70 something percent of black women are single mothers. Now, maybe that's true. Maybe they are unwed and doing a lil somethin to keep some monies coming in, but have a partner that supports them and raises his child. I chose the marriage route. I love my wife and want more for my kid(s) then I had growing up. I knew on my 10th birthday when my father, (who I never saw until he died later that year) didn't reached out to me, what type of father I wanted to be. I know situations come up in every one's life. Today it might be, 'oh, I can't fuck with her', and tomorrow "I can't live without that chick'. But let go sometimes and take a chance. We only live this thing called life once
