Sorry everyone. Unfortunately, this has been the roughest era in my life I have to endure thus far. Hopefully it doesn't get worse than this. I've been surviving and maintaining with the help of a few people. I've lost ambition to write in this blog because quite frankly; it stop having its soothing effect on me. My thoughts belong in my head until further notice. thank you

Anywho... I felt compelled to tell her the I designated someone my big brother out here. Maybe I felt compelled because she was complaining about the bullshit that my actual brother does. I'm still not sure. But I was telling her that I pretty much have a big brother and a big sister who happen to be boyfriend and girlfriend. I was also telling her that I have a new lady and we all went on a double date the other day. Now what she said I thought was cool. She said that I have a mini family out here and thats cool. Come to think of it... I am fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life. I couldn't ask for no one better!

Today in particular is a really good day. I haven't had this feeling in a while. Life has been pretty "blah" lately so I've had the mentality that I'm just getting by. Today brought a feeling of everything will work out wonderful. Lately I've been really grasping around the thought that I honestly and truly LOVE music. It's soooo crazy how music can dictate/facilitate the mood I'm in. Today, on break, I called my lady and then through on some tunes while enjoying the beautiful weather. She put me in a good mood THEN when a certain song came on, I just couldn't stop cheesing. It was the most random song but just because I haven't heard it in awhile just made me feel good. I'll post it at the end of this. Anywho... I guess the purpose of this post is to let yall know that I'm having a really good friggin day!!!
I hope you guys are too!
P.S.. Is anyone else noticing that the formatting on this is acting madd dumb?

I've come across a situation that has happened to me recently and I feel like a clarification is needed. Now I'm in Philly, coolin and enjoying my life. Those of us stuck in philly these days know that there isn't much to do but to chill with cool peoples... So with that being said, not too long ago I received the number of two ladies that are no strangers to me and my roommate. He was always the middle man in terms of all of us coolin but when I got their numbers, I decided to not only thank them for coming to an event I hosted but to also see how they were doing.

MTV's Top MC's of 2008
Ok. First off, I wanna say that this list is ok but I have a few discrepancies. First and foremost, Andre 3000 definitely didn’t get the credit he deserved. They had him at 10 then put him at 9 AND the only reason they even put Andre 3000 at 9 is because T.I. had to fall back cuz of the legal issues. Regardless of the legal issues of T.I, Andre 3000 consistently threw it down on the tracks he got on. “International Players Anthem”…. classic ass song. In my opinion, Andre 3000 MADE that song and that’s not even it. I could mention others like “Walk it Out” remix, “I Want You” remix or even “Throw Some D’s” remix but that’s not even necessary. All I gotta say is “The Art of Storytellin’ Part 4”. Granted this dude ain’t put out an album but the list is not called “MTV’s Top Hip-Hop Albums of 08”, its called “Top MC’s of 08”.
When I hear the acronym “MC”, all I can do is think LYRICAL CONTENT. Sure, ill flows and poppin beats play a lot into songs but if the song is not lyrically on point then what’s the purpose? We talking bout Hip-Hop right? OK. Don’t get me wrong, T.I. does his thing but to me Andre 3000 has him beat. (Just had to break you off a piece of what he was saying in “The Art of Storytellin’ 4”)
“She said, why in the club and you don’t make it precipitate, you know, Make it rain when you can make it Thunder Storm. I’m like why? The world needs sun, the hood needs funds, there’s a war goin on and half the battle is guns. How dare I throw it on the floor while people are poor. So I write like Edger Allen to restore.” – Andre 3000
Next off. Lupe Fiasco! He definitely did not receive as much credit as he deserves. This dude not only put out a wonderful album with “Food and Liquor” but he then came even more Hott Fire lol with “The Cool”. Personally, I love “The Cool”. This album dealt with problems black people face in the general sense by introducing characters and making it a concept album. Think of it as a movie. He comes up with The Cool, The Streets and The Game. Basically a Black Man getting influenced by the Game and caught up in the Streets. Lupe isn’t rappin about how he sold this drug and shot this person and got out the dope game or no shit like that. But he understands what goes on and he’s rapping bout it while also talking bout shit that’s going on in his life. Now Jeezy is cool but come on. I feel like Jeezy hasn't progressed lyrically. What makes a great MC is the ability to evolve and improve. Jeezy is stagnant.
Now on Snoop. I agree with dude when he said that Snoop lost points when he said he didn't write all of his rhymes. I understand Snoops logic but there are A LOT of different ways to put people on. Don't let them write rhymes for you. Put them on a track instead. If you let someone write for you and claim that thats giving them a foot in the door, to me thats BULLSHIT. When we hear a Snoop song, (those of us that are still listening) don't say, "That line was poppin, I wonder who wrote it?" Nah, we say, "Snoop killed it". Bascially, Snoop lost points and this list is for ill MC's of 2008, so "OLD Snoop" shouldn't hold so much weight on his spot on this list. So Lupe should have been above Snoop as well. Bottom-line, Lupe deserved more credit.
Now as far as the rest of the list goes, I felt their arguments were ok. I still don’t understand why they were even considering Solja Boy to be on the list. Like I said before, when I hear “MC” I think Lyrical Content, something that should NOT be associated with Solja Boy. If you go back to the origin of MC, it controversially means “master of ceremonies”. The MC hypes up the DJ and speaks to the crowd. According to Rakim, this person’s responsibility was to “move the crowd”. In my opinion, it didn’t just mean to make them dance but to Move them mentally as well. Personally, I don’t get moved to someone yelling “Yah Trick Yah”. I don’t care if he can make a whole club do one dance or if he sold 3 million ringtones. That’s just irrelevant to the list. Thank you.
P.S.... Is it too much to ask to have Black Thought even considered for the fucking list. I mean damn!!!
