Classic Material: The Head Banger

April 30, 2008

You had to love the forerunners to the “get hype” hip hop genre. The Head Banger is definitely one of those tracks. Cats with the fake mean mug, barking dogs, work clothes, black timberlands….yeah, it was all there. Can’t you just see a 12 year old DMX bouncing off the walls, skinny ass hell in his loose wife beater as this jams in the back?

You just got to wonder. What is K-Solo doing right now? Has he ascended up the music industry ladder or is he pumping gas down at the local Johnny 5. Ok, that wasn’t right.  I’m out.

Akon in trouble with the law again…

November 30, 2007

Akon must have made a deal with the devil or something.

Honestly, back in ’88 if someone told you Alvin would suddenly become thugged out, want to take his art in a new direction and leave the chipmunks and make hit R&B and hip hop smashes would you believe them? Well, that’s all Akon is.. Just a high-pitched, grown ass, 45 year old Alvin, only this cat has done time (for real), reportedly has like 5 wives (no lie) and still manages to get out after these young hoes like it’s game 7 or his life depends on it.

You always have to be weary of hip hop stars and all their rhetoric about being “thugs” or “from the streets,” because most of them are just sensitive ass artists playing a role, but in this cat’s case, I believe it. Once I saw this fool gorilla slam that kid for throwing a wadded up paper cup at him, I knew this cat had learned a few things when he was fighting off Adebesi and Schillinger in the slam. Peep it.

I liked how the camera man kept the tape rollin even after he caught a lil bit of collateral damage. Pretty crazy. A girl was injured and suffered from a concussion (hmm, wonder if she’ll be looking for some dough), and now Akon must appear in a Fishkill, NY court Monday morning for the arraignment. He’s being charged with a misdemeanor for endangering the welfare of a minor, second-degree harassment, and first-degree misdemeanor shirtless tomfoolery.

Akon, chill out son. You’re too old for this brand of foolishness.

I thought you didn’t wanna be “Locked up, won’t let me out, ohhhhh, won let me out” no more. Stay in your lane, homey.
