Historic Hip Hop Highlight

It is nice to have something positive to say about Hip Hop nowadays. I've been a critic of it's lack of creativity and focus on materialism, but after seeing these pictures, I feel a lot better. True heavyweights in the game; Jay-Z, Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, and T.I.(not pictured) were all on the stage at the same time. They were all smiling, laughing, and getting along. For once, it looks like Hip-hop is getting its Grown-man on. I'm proud. This sends a message to the younger generation of Hip-hop heads, as well as the critics: "We are business minded black men and we mean business". I predict more Rap Love Fests of this nature. Especially since the appearance hasn't caused any backlash. In fact the anticipation of a remix with all attending has a major buzz on the Internet. It makes me think of the old Fresh Fests that had all the top rap acts on one tour. I love battles, diss tracks, and beef as much as the next guys but gestures of solidarity and unity, in a cutthroat industry, are much more inspirational than entertaining. But that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?

A Sixth Sense Of Entitlement

What makes person feel that they are bigger, or more important than they rally are. Than You?Whether it's the equipment manager who is telling you how to run a route, a secretary stressing you about your work schedule, or a subordinate trying to run the show; what makes people feel like they can say whatever they want, to whoever they want? This is a touchy subject for me, because I have two minds on the topic. One says, we should live in a world where people feel safe and comfortable. Comfortable enough to speak their mind. The other says, people should understand that they just can't talk to people however they want without the fear or acknowledgement of consequences. Example: If someone who isn't your boss, criticizes your job or job performance, they should know that they have about a 50% chance of getting the shit slapped out of them. If you are a critic of anyone that you don't have an intimate or close relationship with, you should have a healthy fear of getting your head handed to you. Maybe what I'm asking for is respect. Respect in the face of ignorance, from the ignorant. Is that too much to ask? Can you get respect from an ignorant person without the fear of confrontation? Should ignorant people and their opinions even rent space in our heads? I don't know about you, but I'm handing out eviction notices. But that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?

Doing My Part

A friend of mine accused me of being a homophobe and I decided that I was going to do all that I could do to prove otherwise. I told a local single gay man that I would promote him and see if I could get him a date. Here is his picture and his My Space address:

If you like him, shoot him a message. He's a really nice guy, but that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?
