I Wanna Be A Rapper…

August 18, 2008 1 comment

…or a producer, or hip hopper, or whatever we they’re calling themselves these days. Forbes compiled it annual list of the biggest earners, or Kash Kings and they call it, and its a pretty impressive list. No real newcomers this years, but its a who’s who of the rap game.  Fif, JAy, ‘Ye, Dre, Em, Pharrell and the other usuals… Its crazy to think that when I was a shorty my pops would tell me that its just temporary and no one will be listening to rap music 20 years from now… well its 15 years a few years later and “rap” music is selling everything from Kotex to Crunk. From television and movies, to computers and iphones to everything sports related, the urban music scene is up and down Madison Avenue. Trend setters, moguls of all mediums, and even philanthropy and political activism, i love it!

a little more fun too! the hip hop homes for sale, you know if you have a loose $6-15m hanging around in your couch!

Tell Jay to save some for the rest of us

Jig is almost starting to get on my nerves!!! The report is that he is about to sell half of 40/40 to the Las Vegas Sands Corp for $44m. They want to make it the biggest sports book in LV. I like it… if Jay isn’t careful he is about to start treading on that Bing Crosby territory, if you dont know, check it out, dude had dough.

… and in other news, ‘Ye will be producing most of the Blueprint 3.. Check out the first single, Jockin’ Jay Z. Love it!

Ummm… Really, Who Cares

So they are saying that a lot of rappers and entertainers are taking steroids these days… ummm OK, so what!!! Trust me, almost all of them are taking something. How do you think Brad Pitt got “in shape” for Fight Club, or Will Smith in Ali, or Ed Norton in American History X, or Gerard in 300, or Brad in Alexander. Let’s not even start with all these ladies taking clenbuterol and those types of drugs trying to lose weight. Whatever, I don’t care, because it is entertainment. This is as big a non story as I’ve read in months.
