I'm still mad that I missed the Jeezy concert in Seattle because I was sick from allergies (what bullshit). Based on what I heard about it, the sound sucked, and unrelatedly, I'm sure I could have found a nice husband there. You can decide if I'm joking or not. Anyway, two Jeezy shows in a row up in Toronto have had to be shut down due to guns being fired inside the concert venues. On Wednesday at the Sound Academy, the show was shut down after some guy shot another guy over an altercation. On Thursday at the London Music Hall, the show was shut down after shots were fired during the opening act. Both instances had people transported to hospitals with gunshot wounds. Leave your drama at home, people! Or at least don't take it into a concert! HHDX

Mayne I'm jacking my own post for this one. Whenever I look at this picture, I laugh. It can make the darkest day bright. Harry Potter and the Pocket Full of Stone...starring: Young Jeezy as Harry Potter Rick Ross as Hagrid Jay-Z as Headmaster Albus Dumbledore Nicki Minaj as Hermione Granger Gucci Mane as Ron Weasley Waka Flocka Flame as Professor Severus Snape T.I. as Professor Minerva McGonnagal Yesterday, I saw a picture of Yelawolf and he actually looked like Snape.
Tyga enlists a bunch of rapper friends curiously not signed to YMCMB with him, such as Meek Mills, Wale, Fabolous, T.I., and Young Jeezy, for the remix of one of the most ignorant songs ever, "Rack City." I posted the song a while back, and I still have noooooo idea why Fabolous continues to rap, but more pointedly, why he attempts and succeeds at sounding nearly identical to Tyga. It's utterly baffling to me. Unrelated, but I like Wale's kicks. Trap City bitch, Trap Trap City.
B.o.B is on his commander steez--seriously, what's with that army hat trend?--and brings out the big guns Young Jeezy and T.I. for the remix of "Strange Clouds." I really, really like this song. T.I sounds great, Jeezy sounds great, Bobby Ray sounds great. I just love it. Now, if only Bobby Ray's next album Strange Clouds could be along the lines of this song. Although I was partial to the pretty strange clouds in the original video with Weezy (and Weezy looking like a huge weirdo), I'm not complaining. I just really like this song. That's not very eloquent of me, but that's the truth.
Frankly, I probably wouldn't have gone to the trouble of downloading TI's new mixtape Fuck Da City Up if I hadn't read the phrase "trunk rattlers" over at the Trilluminati.net. I judge a book by a cover, mixtape, too, though not as much as novels, and this artwork is goofy looking. Admit it. It's not that it's wack, although I suppose it is, but it's just goofy, like TI is a dad trying to be cool...except he's TI so I guess that makes him automatically cool. Anyway, I was at the gym the other night, and practically dying for some reason, so I figured that if I were to die, or fall off the box I was stepping on to, I might as well be listening to TI's new thang. I mean, why not? Better than BAYTL. Arguably, T.I. created the whole trap music phenomena with the sound on his Trap Muzik album (I think I read that somewhere?), and I really love how he took it back for the streets on Fuck Da City Up. He sounds hungry and aggressive again, and I really like it. Plus, he has great beats, the trappiest of the trap, and all the usual suspects found on any reputable trap album, including Jeezy, 2 Chainz (whose appeal I don't understand), Young Dro, Future, Trouble. More surprisingly, like he had some type of Harry Potter charm, T.I. conjured up a Pimp C verse, and production from the elusive Dr. Dre. Like, did his patronus bring that back to him? What would T.I.'s patronus even be? I can't not bring this up, considering I've already thrown in some Harry Potter allusions. I literally can't believe that T.I. has a song named "Harry Potter," and that's it's produced by Hit Boy, ...
Long story short, Young Jeezy is miffed that his song "My President is Black" didn't earn him an invite to the White House. The feeling of entitlement runs rampant in this country. When I read Jay-Z's book Decoded, there was a chapter that talked about the presidential election, and detailed how Jay-Z joined Jeezy on stage in DC after Obama was elected, and they were yelling something like "Fuck Bush!" I forgot that I lent Decoded to my friend in Tacoma, AKA that means I'll probably never get it back, so I can't directly quote it. Damn. After reading that part of the book, I was highly unsympathetic about anything that related to Jeezy because I thought it was a little crass. Besides, I'm not a huge Jeezy fan anyway, despite his trapiness, and I'm also not a huge fan of most of Obama's policies, but I'm not yelling "Fuck Obama" every time I have an audience (which is never, but still). Among many aspects from Jeezy's interview, I was surprised that he used to watch Dennis Miller's show, who is hilarious by the way, and that he likened the state of America when Obama was elected to "a badly managed Wal-Mart." I have not heard that comparison before, but it saddens my heart that Wal-Mart is associated so strongly to America. I despise Wal-Mart. Another point worth mentioning is that there are a fairly large majority of voters who did vote Obama into office, and feel betrayed by what he's done while in office, verses what he promised on the campaign trail. No one is ever happy and people just love to complain about something, basically. He's way too liberal for Republicans, and not liberal enough for some Democrats. His healthcare legislation didn't go over well, and Wall Street ...
I posted the audio only last week with some trap guy for Trap Tuesdays, and now there's a video for "Be The One!" Trey Songz is looking finer than usual, if that's even possible, Lloyd gets a tattoo on his head, and Jeezy just kind of pops out of no where. I used to wear a bandana around my neck like him back in college, and I'm contemplating bringing it back. I always got lots of compliments from it. King Of Hearts was actually a really good album, and it's noteworthy enough for me to write about the fact that both Lloyd and Trey Songz hold their own on one track.
Okay, this isn't exactly "trap music," per se, as "Be The One" is produced by Polow Da Don, who is more of a mainstream, Top 40 producer than a trap superstar. On the other hand, he did produce Lil Wayne's "John" from Tha Carter IV, and I'll be damned if that couldn't pass as a Lex Luger beat. That being said, "Be The One" is originally found on Lloyd's album, who is essentially the opposite of trap. Actually, he could be the most trap individual out there, saying the most ignorant things imaginable and dressing really flagrantly, but at the end of the day, he sounds like a sweet angel out of heaven. He could sing anything, and people would still be commenting on his sweet soprano voice. Young Jeezy definitely adds an element of trap to the mix, and allegedly this guy Chubbie Boy is pretty trap. I'm just going off what I see on Dirty Glove Bastard. Trey Songz can go either way. Like, I always love Trigga, but if he's on some trap music, even better in my book on my blog! And that's sure some vintage Trey in that picture. Spotted at DGB
Well, it's certainly no secret that I am a nerd, and that I love Harry Potter (I might have went to one of the movies at midnight with a lightning bolt drawn on my forehead although I'm more of a Slytherin). Please, no, don't compare what I just wrote to the lightning bolts coming out of the ice cream cone tatted on Gucci's face. The next thing we need him to do is getting a Harry Potter tattoo on the other side of his face...This remixed Harry Potter poster has me absolutely dead. It's the best of both worlds!Young Jeezy and the Pocket Full of Stone stars...Young Jeezy as Harry PotterRick Ross (complete with his chain) as HagridNicki Minaj as Hermione GrangerJay-Z as Headmaster DumbledoreGucci Mane as Ron WeasleyWaka Flocka Flame as Professor SnapeT.I. as Professor McGonagallIsn't this classic?!
