no Ray J, just no

As if the whole country didn’t know that Kim Kardashian made a regrettable sex tape with Ray J years ago, he wants to make sure the whole WORLD knows that “he hit it first.” He lays out some pretty eloquent lyrics: “She might move on the rappers and ball players but I hit it first.” “Baby chose to go West…but I know I hit it first.” “If you were to come back to me girl we’ll make another movie.”

However, folks Ray J insists this song is not about Kim K. Dude, if you are going to make a song like this I say own your desperation–don’t deny it–it’s not becoming. I think because Ray J knows that he can’t keep with with the heavy hitters like Wayne, Jay-Z, and Kanye, he has to make some ridiculous song to get attention. Undoubtedly, he is getting attention in the form of laughs. So have it at…we could all use a good pity laugh on a Tuesday. c. 

P.S. who is excited for Kanye’s bad-ass response? Maybe I am.

Bring Me Back My Rap

I feel like good rap these days is hard to come by, or maybe I’m just not looking hard enough.  I feel like most of what you hear out of rap these days is along the lines of “I’m rich” and “I got so many bitches” or “do the [insert stupid dance move name here].”  This is not to say I don’t like the songs, or bob along to them, or learn the [insert stupid dance move name here].  Hell, I posted one tonight.

However, I have not lost sight of the rap I like to listen to and appreciate.  I liked when Kanye and Jay-Z dropped “Watch The Throne” and I still listen to that album often.  But there is some rap that I don’t think will ever be topped.

Here are some of those for me.  a

P.S. I know I’ll be criticized cause some older rappers aren’t on here.  I don’t care.  These are a few of my faves.

He’s too clever:

 

One of the strongest, most emotionally raw songs from him:

 

Powerful.  And yes.  I love Lil Wayne:

 

Good beats, good flow, chill mode:
