Here's wishing you a merry Dipset Xmas

So it's been a long while... I've been doing my school blog (yay teaching the youth) but I'm back, and I've got a bunch to rant about.

So, even though it's not Thanksgiving yet, it's never too early to start listening to Christmas music. And if you're ready to branch out and try something a little different, I present for you, from the same people that brought you DipSkate (I thought it was a skateboarding thing, which is at least "cool" now in the hip-hop scene, but no... they're rollerblading) "A Dipset Xmas". (Pause for dramatic effect)
Yes you heard that right. I know, I too am in pure shock. Where does the madness end? What's next? (Jay-Z and Russell Simmons doing a PSA against Anti-Semitism?) And I was really trying to not talk badly about the state of hip-hop in NY anymore... but come on man. Seriously? But maybe I'm jealous cause I won't be "Baaaallin" on Christmas. (The picture is from Nah Right... a great blog)

Sidenote: I once heard this great joke about rollerblading...
So what's the worst part about being a rollerblader?

Telling your parents you're gay....
the beauty is that it works with anything... hi-lari-ous.

Ok...enough of rollerblading Christmas carolers. (What do you think Jesus would say about Jim Jones trying to co-opt his holiday? Maybe not too much cause he's "Baaallin for the Lord.")

Anyway, how about Naomi Campbell? Apparently, she's a violent super-bigot. I for one, think that phrase is just hysterical, and just trying to picture her cursing out her Romanian housekeeper in a cell-phone throwing rage for stealing some of her exclusive, super model jeans also makes me giggle a bit. I hope that she has to pay some money and gets community service picking up trash or something.

On a more serious note, it's been about 10 yrs since the O.J. murder trials, and I remember how when I was in 8th grade, all the Black kids being happy he got off and all the White kids and teachers, just shocked. We didn't know why we cared, but we felt we should and we celebrated like it was a family member. We had finally gotten justice for one of our own... it was a slap in the face to the man. And today, there are many people that are still convinced that O.J. is innocent. However, I think after all but admitting how he did it in his upcoming book and interview, I don't think there are too many more that would take that stance. It's actually very interesting to see just how the lines split racially 10 yrs ago, but I'm pretty sure that most would agree today that he's just a bad person, and needs to go away. Just not classy man.

Back to asinine... This just in: Kevin Federline is a horrible person and the epitome of a tool. (However, I can't say I wouldn't at least download a Britney Spears sex tape.) I can't believe this man has FOUR children, and is fighting for custody. Can you imagine the judge's reaction when he reads that? I would pee my pants. Are you serious guy? You like someone threw up Justin Timberlake. Get your life in order... jeez. If I were Britney Spears, I would just play his album as the reason to why I should get sole custody. And if you haven't seen the video of the supposed text message divorce notice (how classy was that marriage? I love our culture), here it is: Womp Womp.

In sports, Leon Washington says "You can get the finger, the middle." (c)(Kriss Kross) It may be hard to see, but yes, he is giving you and your moms the finger. And on his rookie card. How gangster is that? Apparently it's a shout-out to his neighborhood (East side of Jacksonville... guess they're sign is the middle finger) and the card makers didn't notice this, until recently, after much complaint. He says he would never do anything like that, but still... this should probably not happen. Aren't their people that get paid to at least look at these things before they go out? Either way, the card is now selling for around 100 dollars. (I love our culture)

Alrighty... I've given you a lot so I'm gone. Next up on stage: Leon Washington and The Birds....

S
ee what I did there?

Happy Birthday to Lisa Bonet... we still love you
