It’s no secret that hoodrats everywhere flock to the nearest designer retailer to spend their entire paycheck on a $380 handbag belt that they can’t afford. Somewhere near you, a kid is sitting on their dirty bed sheet eating leftovers from yesterday’s KFC because their mother was given a false impression through some rap song that Gucci or Prada grants you irrevocable social status. Now, the stupid broad’s phone is cut off because she didn’t have the money to pay her bill.
That’s where Jay-Z comes in.
Are you a gangster… or a gangsta?
There’s definitely a difference. And it’s no secret that most of these gangsta rappers idolize the gangsters that are portrayed as glorified murderers all over the news, TV and the silver screen:
“Scarface.” “Goodfellas.” Lucky Luciano. Al Capone. “The Godfather.” Murder, Inc. The 5 families. John Gotti. Every single one of these real-life individuals, syndicates, fictional characters and stories have been used and reused amongst the hip-hop community. Even stick-up kids like the original 50 Cent and drug kingpins like the real Rick Ross have had their names jacked and their persona imitated through the rappers who pretend to have lived their lives.
“That weed keep my mind out the gutter/ So I stay ‘hi’ like the word we use to greet each other.”
“Stop living in denial/ the Nile is a river in Egypt”
“I’LL BAG DAT (baghdad) LIKE IRAQ”
“I COME WITH A BANG LIKE A PONYTAIL”
“I GET MORE BUTT THAN AN EXCUSE.”
“Got a thing for Khloe,” rapped Rick Ross.
Why? She looks like a pig in makeup and heels.
But then again, Ross is the size of a beach whale, so two fat slobs bumping stomachs would probably work.
Struggling with the desire to go to bed but lacking sleepiness, I hopped online and ran across 50’s new joint “This is Murder Not Music.”
This shit about had me nodding off in front of my computer.
Back in my official journalism days, I once interviewed Cory Gunz (he was 19-years-old, soft spoken, and even softer than a batch of cookies fresh out the oven). He stumbled out of the cab he took to his (then) manager’s office where he met me– on Broadway and near Bleeker Street– and ran straight to the bathroom… where he stayed for about 15 minutes.
“Car sick,” he said as he sat down next to me, clenching his stomach. And later: “I aint a gangster rapper. I’m not out here shootin niggas, catchin a million bodies.”
So you can only imagine my surprise when I found out Gunz was facing a gun charge.
This bitch’s government name is AUBREY. He even went to a Jewish school, had a bar mitzvah, and was an actor on the teen drama “Degrassi” where he played the complete opposite to who he currently portrays as a rapper.
With these three things put together, it absolutely BAFFLES me that he’s able to attract nothing but hoodrats to his shows.
How is this shit even possible?
