since politics became so entertaining.

Now if ony BET would introduce the RAP News channel where they rap-up the news all the time.

Maybe even have the Auto The News segment to round out the programing selection.

She went up on stage uninvited during the performance of Jay Z and Alicia Keys and basically made a fool of herself. Now she's being paroded in all sorts of different places for turning up... like ^that one with elvis.

Hmm, interesting he would use "Empire State of Mind" as the title after recently ending his fued w/ Nas who's got a huge hit with "NY State of Mind".  Nas's song is 100x better.  Far less filler.

God I'd **** the **** out of Alicia Keys -- not only hot but she can sing and play the piano?!?! I'd let her serenade me everyday.

And "NY State of Mind" is one of my favorite song of Nas's and maybe hiphop in general.

Is that a serious question or am I the only one who has no attraction to Jessica Simpson?

Beyonce/Fox without hesitation.
I would offer Keys a spot on the bed too though.

But Megan better keep her hands away from my mouth because I don't suck on toes.

Its really hard to know who which people like.
Jessica Simpson I thought was ridiculously hot in Employee of the month...ok how bout this one

Alicia Keys / Jessica Alba  or Beyonce / Megan Fox?

i think 99% of people think Jessica Alba is hot, but the idea of the game is to give a really hard choice.

how bout this one

Can't beat Beyonce/Fox.  Just like Seinfeld.  Its the classic black/white cookie.  Best of both worlds.

J Simpson has always been over rated.

How about Eliza Duzku/Lucy Pinder....

Here's my newest hip hop song. I worked really hard on it.  Original beats, original lyrics.  I'd say its up there with some of Warren G's best material.  I hope you guys like it.

I had no idea where to put this and I have no idea of how to explain this to you other than WTF...

Spike Jonze Directs Kanye West stars in "We were once a fairy tale"

but I think it would be better titled, "There is something inside of me that is making me do all this"

I always thought Kanye was simply a giant douche, but now I think he's really fucked up in the head. Dude needs some help.

I could attempt to explain it, but I might start sound crazy myself.
I think my re-title helps to understand the metaphor. (assuming there was one)

no I understood it perfectly. He just needs to stop being a little bitch and take some motherfuckin responsibility.

I mean, who makes a movie that tries to blame all of their problems on a little fuckin' gremlin living inside them.

Spike Jonze is the man.

Drake is the future, his lyrics are crazy.

Kanye is the best producer out there in terms of quality and consistency, and he also has nice lyrics too.  But I think he's bored with the game, and really wants to do something else.  His last album moved into the "I'm so bored, I just want to do something really off-the-wall to see if I can make people like it" territory.

Jay-Z is like the Sinatra of rap to me (a legend, consistently quality material, trailblazer in terms of what a mere "rapper" can be), but he'll always be in the shadow of Notorious B.I.G. in my eyes.  Biggie could do any style and make it both believable and entertaining.  Jay-Z is top-tier but doesn't quite have the charisma of Biggie.  He's more business, less gutter.  He's more notable for his longetivity than anything else, which is undoubtedly remarkable.  He's never had a bad album, either.

Eminem can destroy anybody lyrically.  I think, like Kanye, he's so good that he's bored.  Nobody comes after him any more because they know he'll wipe them off the map.  Take a listen to his diss track aimed at Mariah and Nick Cannon (especially Nick Cannon, my word Em tears that boy apart) if you don't believe me.

Mos Def is also a lyrical genius.  His musical choices leave a lot to be desired (I would say the same thing about Nas, that guy has some of the best lyrics but worst beats on his albums), but listen to stuff like "Mathematics" and "Champion's Requiem" and you can't deny he's one of the best out there.

Nas killed it with Illmatic - arguably my favorite album ever - but everything since then has been mediocre to terrible.  He's the classic guy that has three killer tracks on each album and then 15 other tracks that are straight garbage.

I've always been a fan of the Wu.  Liquid Swords, that's all I really have to say.  I really want to check out Only Built for Cuban Linx 2, as well.  Triumph is also sick, and you know, 36 Chambers.

I'm not a Lil' Wayne fan.  I don't hate the guy but I've never seen what qualifies him as "The Best Rapper Alive".  Everybody raves about how he doesn't write raps and freestyles everything, but my problem is that you can TELL he's dropping stuff off the dome.  It's impressive, but some of his raps are terrible.  His raps SOUND like freestyles.  Jay-Z doesn't write anything either (neither did Biggie), and you can't even tell.  I still don't believe it, but watch Fade to Black and Mike D. from the Beastie Boys is there with his jaw on the floor, raving to Rick Rubin that Jay doesn't write anything and just goes in the booth and drops it.  He couldn't believe it.

Yeah, I listen to a little rap.

Wow, Biggie freestyled his rhymes?  If he did that on Dead Wrong, thats one of the most impressive feats in human history.  God I love that song.

Well, not so much freestyle as he did make them up in the booth.  In other words, he never wrote anything down.  He would apparently sit there in the studio and create the rhymes on the spot, and practice them in his head until he had a whole song created.  Jay-Z does the same thing.  Jay-Z has said it's like a mental exercise, and the more you do it, the better you get at it.

That makes sense.  I know people that will sort of freestyle over beats just to get a sort of melody down, then fill the words from there. 

While Jay Z has gotten better, his rhymes remind me of a guy freestylin who never really gets to the punchline.  Listening to him and Em on Renegade is like night and day, while Jay is talking about going to the store to buy something to "quiet stomach rumblings' Em is painting pictures of going to war w/ the Mormons while being drowned to death during baptism.  Dude is a random insane lyrical genius.  Like Kanye, I respect J more for his producing than his rhyming.  Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life was a masterpiece of beats back in the day.

No love for Tupac? I know Biggie was a lyrical genius but Pac was a rhythmic genius. His lines just hit and the never followed any standard of normal rhymes. Hell, sometimes he wouldn't even rhyme at all and just say a deep phrase.
