good, bad, and ugly

When you first start rhyming
It started off slow and then you start climbing
But it wasn't fast enough I guess
So you gave your other style a test
You was hardcore hip-hop
Now look at yourself, boy you done flip-flopped
Giving our music away to the mainstream
Don't you know they ain't down with the team
They just sent they boss over
Put a bug in your ear and now you crossed over
On MTV but they don't care
They'll have a new nigga next year
You out in the cold
No more white fans and no more soul
And you might have a heart attack
When you find out the black folks don't want you back
And you know what's worse?
You was just like the nigga in the first verse
Stop selling out your race
And wipe that stupid-ass smile off your face
Niggas always gotta show they teeth
Now I'm a be brief
Be true to the game

Ice Cube ( Be True to the Game)

Today is Wednesday. And today's vibe will be sports and entertainment.

Surprisingly, we are almost HALFWAY through this year. Before you know it, Christmas will be here again. A lot has happened in the 5 months of 08. There's been a lotta good (OBAMA, baby), bad (Brittney Spears), and ugly (Flavor of Love...season 3)

Today, I'm gonna give you a few good things...bad things...and ugly things from 08 from the world of sports and entertainment

GOOD
New York Giants beating the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl
Beyonce and Jay Z FINALLY tying the knot
Dallas Cowboys getting knocked outta the playoffs...again!!!
Alicia Keys latest cd
American Gangster

BAD
Gerald LeVert's death
The cancellation of Girlfriends
Foxy Brown and Remy Ma going to jail
RKelly trial
Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and Brittany Spears

UGLY
Flavor of Love...Season 3
The writer's strike
Hilary Clinton
The idiot who put the video out "announcing" that he was HIV positive and he knowingly had unprotected sex with hundreds of under aged girls.
Memphis at the free throw line in the championship game. (sorry Torrance)

It's on you! Give me AT LEAST 2 of each

Holla!

The Pew View said...

Oh praise the Lawd I'm first! Do I win a prize or something cause I'll take a half pint of Crown Royal. You kno I likes to use that bag to save my pennies! Plus Crown Royal on ice aint to bad either.

Let me see here:
Good:
-That big lip rapper marrying that big hip sanger! What's they name? Oh yeah Jay Z & Beyonce

-Whoopie cutting dem thangs in her hair down a bit. That chile' hair looked like a nest of snakes if you ask me.

Bad:
-Watching all them gals stick they tongues in that Flavor Flav mouth. That man kno he look like a gremlin and my 2nd late husband Leroy Lee.

-I bet you Flavor Flav's breath is BAD!

Ugly:
-Flavor Flav's mama! Does she count since she was on tv recently? She reminds me of old stank breath Mother Edna at my church.

-I personally thanks that Jay Z fellow is ugly. I could have hooked Beyonce up with 1 of my 13 childrens'. She could have got with one of my boys and I even got a girl who thank she a boy. So she had plenty of choices pending on what floats her boat.

Take care now.

Proactiff said...

you are like the fave teacher... erybody loves coming to your blog class even though they know full well there will be work involved with the lesson. *sticks out tongue*

[queue original post link]

good: 1) i know what i don't want as it relates to a career path. 2) we moved into a rental home, after our first home sold faster than anticipated we seemed to have been from pillar to post due to apartment conversions and landlord foreclosure; we never considered renting a freaking house because we just thought we'd buy another. 3) made the decision to relocate from florida. for real for real this go round.

bad: 1) still. 2) unemployed. 3) since august '07.

ugly: 1) found out old landlord was in foreclosure and we were forced to move on short notice. 2) not being able to spend both our income tax refund or this coming stimulus check because of moving expenses and bill "ketchup" (see the bad as part to blame).

Did I get an 'A' teacher? lmao

Brad said...

Good - The Giants are the Champs baby. The NBA is back baby. Alcohol Sales on Sundays (come on Georgia get with it). The 12th Planet.

The Boston Redsox (just hate all things Boston). Black on Black crime (I know that's corny but I was listening to Self Destruction this morning.

Ugly - Venus Williams. Dennis Rodman. That dude who is selling Obama 08 T-shirts with Obama looking like a monkey.

Bad -
Bush is still an idiot and he's so out of touch with reality.

Many are forced to choose between filling up the gas tank or getting groceries during the week.

Ugly -
Sad to say it, but I watched every episode of Rock of Love, Flav of Love and I love New York and nearly vomiting whenever anyone kissed.

I worry that many black folk will decide not to vote at all if Obama doesn't get the party nom.

@112kyle. You will NOT rep the yankees! Historically they are the most racist team in the league. UGHH!!! The Mets are the team of the folks!

12kyle said...

Remy Ma got 8 yrs in the slamma. Damn! All of that for 3 stacks. It looked bad for TI for a minute. He's str8 now

@ The F$%K it List
The Yankees are my squizzad! Have been since the 70s. They aint no more racist than anybody else in baseball. Lol. Seriously, I don't hate the Mets. They are the only "minority" team in the league. I like that. I want a Subway series every year. I don't like the Braves but I love going to the games here.
