The "Round of Applause" song, despite being produced by Lex Luger, always makes me yawn. I guess I'm not the hugest Waka Flocka Flame fan. I've just always thought it was boring for some reason, but fortunately, Drake's dancing in the background of this Mr. Boomtown-directed video saves the day by making me laugh. Oh, Wheelchair Jimmy, I appreciate you for all the wrong reasons.

Lil B goes in on one of my favorite songs from 2011, which coincidentally was David Banner's satire on the state of hiphop that includes Lil B and his use of "swag." Yes, Lil B, no one is arguing that you own "swag." I'm going to be honest when I say that his energetic based flow was wholly unexpected. I was impressed. Of course, he's still off tempo, (is that a Lil B trademark yet?) so some things never change even though I have a feeling that that is intentional. As usual, Lil B's Youtube descriptions are almost more entertaining than what he's rapping about, or showing in the video. WELP WE NO WHO HAS THE SWAG - Lil B NEW MIXTAPE FROM LIL B COMING!! OMG! "GODS FATHER" WOW BASEDWORLD RECORDS INSIST IT WILL BE ONE OF THE BEST MIXTAPES TO EVER BE RELEASED A MUST COLLECT OF RARE MUSIC AND TO DB SHUT UP - Lil B* All in all, a gallant effort on The Based God's part, but I would still take David Banner's version. *Bold emphasis, mine.
A couple days ago, after seeing the Mitt A$AP Romney ads in A$AP Rocky's "Wassup" video, I just had to screenshot this because it cracked me up. Yeah, I looked up Beyonce's "Who Run The World (Girls)" video because I wanted to learn the dances, in case you're wondering. Also if you're wondering, it was unsuccessful. Instead, I see this 15 minute long, negative ad about Newt Gingrich that I was able to skip after 10 seconds or so. It was some third party PAC or foundation or some shit that paid for it. And then there's Nicki Minaj with that face, like, "What is this shit?!" Not only that, but there's an ad to endorse Ron Paul in the upper right hand corner! One time, I also saw Keri Hilson's video for something being advertised as I watched a Beyonce video. That's also funny because Miss Keri Baby actively throws shade at King B.
I'm kind of indifferent to all these "Shit People Say" memes that were birthed from the "Shit Black Girls Say" (I think?). There's like a million of 'em now, including "Shit Seattle People Say When It Snows," and each new one is less funny. That isn't a hyperbole. It's probably an algorithm that my homeboy Steven could crack in Excel. However, I find this "Shit Drake Says" version to be quite humorous, mostly because that guy has the Drizzy wave down pat and because he's using song excerpts instead of saying stuff. My favorite part is the scene with the girl starting at 1:35 when he has that blanket pulled up to his chin (while wearing his beanie and sunglasses) that alternates between him dancing around in the grass like a goober. Yeah, I said it, goober. I bet Drizzy has said it before, too. And now there's "Shit Music Bloggers Say" which left me unamused. I didn't laugh out loud. Maybe I'm just jealous that Elliot Wilson has never retweeted me...nah, definitely not. I actually don't base my self-worth on who does or doesn't follow or RT me on twitter. As I was thinking about it more, though, it seems like an accurate portrayal of music bloggers. Maybe we're all just boring. #RealTalk. I think a spin-off of that "Shit Music Bloggers Say" could be "Shit Julie Says." Frankly, it's more fun to mock myself than to think I'm a boring music blogger. I'd be wearing all black, in my dungeon apartment, with J's on. Here is what I would say in the video: "I love all the colors in this music video. I'm such a sucker for pretty colors." "I really, really love trap music! Oh my God, the DJ is playing trap music right ...
Of all the people to be hosting America's Next Top Rapper...of all the people to be endorsing a tax service...of course it's Trina. Florida tax service Tax USA hired her for this commercial.After checking out their website, it doesn't appear that Trina works there, despite her use of "we" throughout the commercial. Anyway, how painful was this to watch? Is it that hard to do takes right on the first time? Brutal. And don't forget to pay your taxes. Otherwise, people like the dude in front of me at Ballard Market (one of the more pricier grocery stores in Seattle) won't be able to use their foodstamps at upscale stores. Either he's taking advantage of the government, which I have a problem with, he's too stupid to stretch his dollar at cheaper grocery stores, which I have a problem with, or the government is allowing themselves to be taken advantage of, which I also have a problem with. Tax dollars at work so he can spend extra on Oroweat English Muffins at Ballard Market than at Fred Meyer. Do you think Trina has ever missed paying her taxes? Rappers are notorious for not paying taxes... But if she's doing shit like this, is she even making enough to warrant paying taxes? Part of me wants to say no.
Today is one of those days...(I won't elaborate; use your imagination). Jimmy Kimmel did a skit of sorts for Kanye's new think tank Donda that he terrorized Twitter with for hours the other night. On the outset, a commercial of Kanye tweets would be funny. I was a little excited to watch it during lunch since today has been so stupid, and Kanye is notorious for humorous (and grammatically incorrect) tweets. Since they're advertising it as a commercial about Donda--named after his mother--I figured that it would consist of those tweets, but it didn't. It wasn't even funny. When I left for work this morning, did I leave my sense of humor at home? Or did it mysteriously vanish one day and I didn't notice? I'm also left wondering if anyone actually cares that Kanye tweeted 86 times, or whatever statistic Jimmy Kimmel threw out there? Like, dude, can't you at least make fun of the Republican presidential candidates or something? "Throwing some kazoo on this bitch" is funny, but that had nothing to do with Yeezy's "twitter rant" about Donda. In fact, it wasn't a "rant," either, but more of a tweet spree. What was he ranting about? He was tweeting about this creative think tank and how he wants to change the world. Okay, I'm done. See, my blog post was kind of a rant. I took issue with the fact that Jimmy Kimmel's video wasn't funny, and that he wasn't using the work "rant" correctly.
What a pleasant start to the week! James Davis, better known as Baracka Flocka Flames, dropped "I Run The Military" over at WSHH. He is always on point with his parodies. Always. At first, I was just sitting here, laughing, because he does such a great impersonation of Obama, and that girl really resembles The First Lady. But as I continue to sit here, since I work at a computer all day, I realized how great his rhymes are. I kind of feel like he could give some actual rappers a run for their money because his flow is on fire. I started laughing so hard at his line about Lupe ("Lupe...ain't vote for Barack, that's why it took so long for his album to drop...") and then I just continued to laugh and simultaneously be impressed by everything he said about all the other candidates. It's pretty admirable that he knows everyone. Like, if my homegirl and I asked him who Michele Bachmann was, he would know. Baracka Flocka Flame definitely has my endorsement for 2012. Not Barack Obama, but Baracka Flocka Flames.
Well, I'm off to the Watch The Throne tour in Tacoma tonight. I haven't had time to blog, really, because of that thing called worked (what's what?) but I did see this, and thought it very approprié . Aziz Ansari, arguably the star of the "Otis" video with his little cameo as the hypeman, and Matthew Shawver remixed "Niggas in Paris" with emojis. Fellow iPhone users, unite! You are now watching the throne! Spotted at HHU
Back in college, my homegirl (and house mate) Megan and I would always laugh about Kanye West and his antics, which at that point in time, were documented more often than not IN ALL CAPS on this blog. Unfortunately, he ended his illustrious blogging, only to replace it with tweeting, and now he does neither, but that's beyond the point. I still maintain that the best Kanye-ism of all time is "DAAAAAAAAMN!!! THIS IS SOME BENJAMIN BUTTON'S SHIT!" It was his response to people thinking that he was older than he actually was after his Vibe cover where he had grey in his beard. He just wanted to look older, which didn't make sense to me then, and still doesn't make sense to me years later. that was his response clarifying that he wasn't as old in real life as the Vibe cover made him look. "DAAAAAAAAMN!!! THIS IS SOME BENJAMIN BUTTON'S SHIT!" is amazing because it is truly applicable in each and every situation. You won the lotto? "DAAAAAAAAMN!!! THIS IS SOME BENJAMIN BUTTON'S SHIT!" You forgot your wallet at home? "DAAAAAAAAMN!!! THIS IS SOME BENJAMIN BUTTON'S SHIT!" You didn't do your homework? "DAAAAAAAAMN!!! THIS IS SOME BENJAMIN BUTTON'S SHIT!" And I could keep going all day long. The point of this article is to not reminisce about the Kanye social media that once was, or more importantly, his outstanding if not eccentric quotes, but to shine light on the supervelma shop on Etsy. Shop owner Amy Sheridan decided to capture these classic tweets in thread by embroidering them in needlepoint, and then framing them. The Library of Congress also captures every tweet ever tweeted, but those aren't done in needlepoint. They appear to be sold out, but it looks ...
Comedian Affion Crockett does a pretty accurate depiction of Drake and his eyebrows. Personally, I've always thought that Drake's wild, waving wrists are his most striking feature, followed very closely by his pouty, pursed lips. I hadn't ever really noticed his brows. This spoof of "Headlines" was good. I laughed two times, but I was saddened that he began it with the disclosure that "Parody is Comedy. Never Disrespect." Don't people understand that? As humorous as this was, he has nothing on Barack Flocka Flame.
