Bow Wow Wow Yippie Yo Yippie Yeeeeee-haw

I love Snoop.  He’s been in the game for 15 years and is still so legit that he can get away with this.

Where do I start?  The Cowboy hat?  The belt buckle?  The leather vest?  That shirt?  That chain?  The jheri curl?  Man, if he had cut the sides of the curl in a full on mullet he really would have stuck the landing on this one.  Pedro knew how to lock it in.

Damn, that curl is shiny as hell.  I know the back of his neck is so slick that he’d probably get suspended for throwing a curve ball after he touched it.  Baseball really needs to look into this.

Seriously though, Snoop is rolling cowboy style when he started looking like this:

Really real, really gangster.  To this:

I had to get the full length joint so I can peep the cowboy boots.  He still looks like he’s wearing Stacy Adams.  I knew that damn belt had a metal tip too.  Haaaa!

Hip Hop 101: Hip Hop Decoded!

January 24, 2008

I’ve already brought you a short class on Assology.  There will be another lesson upcoming for the Spring Semester with a deeper look into the tail piece along with some new findings.  But I also wanted to introduce a new topic.  Rap music.

I know that everyone doesn’t like or understand Rap music.  For some people, maybe they just can’t get down with the lyrics, the beats, or the artists.  In reality, rap music brings important messages to everyone, so to help bring this message to a broader audience, popular songs have been reduced to easy to understand mathmatics based graphs.

Let’s start off simple.  UvT has studied the work of the late great Christopher Wallace who adopted the oxymoranic nomenclature of Biggie Smalls and determined that there is a direct relationship between Money and Problems.

We also found that if you look closely at a unique phenomenon called “1,2,3 & to the Fo'”.  When it occurs, both Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr. Dre will be at the Doe 100% of the time.  We’ve called this the “G-Thang effect“.

This one become a bit confusing.  Ultimately we know that “Bitches Ain’t Shit but Hoes and Tricks“, but the use of the vernacular “ain’t” keeps this in the realm of mere theory for now.

We suspect that the true finding of this study will be that but stating “Bitches ain’t shit” it means that they are in fact always less than or equivalent to shit.  Such a revelation would throw the entire space time continuum into flux, so we will be careful with the announcement.

In the meantime, there are tributes to our finding popping up already:

In our final finding, we’ve found a way to determine when, in fact, you gotta say it was a good day.  This finding is based on the field research of O’Shea Jackson.  Like Samson his work was better before he cut his hair, but he will be remembered as one of the greatest.

Hot Video: Snoop Dogg “Sensual Seduction”

December 4, 2007

Snoop has been in the game for a long time, he’s got his ninth album coming out next year. There was original young Snoop ripping it on the original Deep Cover track (creep with me, as I crawl through the hood). Death Row Snoop, No Limit Snoop, and now he’s done it again.

When I first heard it, it was a little tired of hearing rappers singing on their tracks. (It made Andre 3000 disappear for a good three years, but he’s started killing remixes about a year ago, and is back with a vengeance on Art of Storytelling Pt. 4) But this video from Snoop really puts it over the top.

Snoop brought back everything.

The “talk box” made famous by Roger Troutman and now being abused by T-Pain.

The old school Keytar:

No matter how hard you try to look, you still play keyboard.

The feathered hair.

Is that a perm, a curl, or both?

Lake said how ridiculous R&B stars look when they try to be gangster in pictures, but it was even more ridiculous in the 80’s. But Snoop also brought back the old school keep it real posse picture.

Cameo did it best, but you can’t look hard with that gear and that hair. Oh man, that’s great, one more.

Keep it gangsta fellas. Morris Day is killing it in the leopard jacket.

Snoop keeps himself relevant 15 years later, still making music I want to hear.

LL, you should take notes.
