And Here We Go...

So I'm done with school. I finished my book last Thursday and after a very productive and eventful debut at PN9, I came out swinging. I've got my first interview (and hopefully my last) in a few hours and I couldn't be more excited. It's at a pretty bad ass agency and despite my best attempts to not get my hopes up, I did.

This is the first time I've ever been excited for an interview and looking forward to getting a full time job.

Anyway, I'll let y'all know how it goes. Go big.

I was listening to an old Jada Kiss song the other day called 'Why' where he basically just asks a bunch of questions the whole time. I used to like the song but the more I hear it, the more I get annoyed. Most of his "deep questions" are really easy to answer. So I figured why not answer them. So here's me blowin up Jada's spot.

Yo, why is Jadakiss as hard as it gets - He's not.
Why is the industry designed to keep the artist in debt - Stop buying sh*t!
And why them dudes ain't ridin' if there part of your set - Stop paying for them!
And why they never get it poppin' but they party to death - Because they're broke.
Yea, and why they gon give you life for a murder
Turn around only give you eight months for a burner - Seriously? Killing's illegal.
Why they sellin' niggaz CD's for under a dime - It costs less than a penny to make.
If it's all love daddy why you come wit your nine - That's just dangerous.
Why my niggaz ain't get that cake - I don't know what this means.
Why is a brother up North better than Jordan
That ain't get that break - I call bullshit.
Why you ain't stackin' instead of tryin' to be fly - Fiscal irresponsibility.
Why is rattin' at an all time high - Snitching is cool.
Why are you even alive - When a man loves a woman he inserts his...
Why they kill Tupac n' Chris - To bring back Unsolved Mysteries.
Why at the bar you ain't take straight shots instead of poppin Crist'- Gross.
Why them bullets have to hit that door - Velocity = Mass x Acceleration
Why did Kobe have to hit that raw - She was asking for it
Why he kiss that whore - That's just rude

verse 2

Why would niggaz push pounds and powder - Money
Why did bush knock down the towers - Woah. Conspiracy theory?
Why you around them cowards - I went to private school.
Why Aaliyah have to take that flight - Business.
Why my nigga D ain't pull out his Ferrari
Why he take that bike - Trying to look hard I assume.
Why they gotta open your package and read your mail - Anthrax?
Why they stop lettin' niggaz get degreez in jail - This is the first good question.
Why you gotta do eighty-five percent of your time - Good behavior.
And why do niggaz lie in eighty-five percent of they rhymes - You made up that stat.
Why a nigga always want what he can't have - Grass is greener.
Why I can't come through in the pecan Jag - Pecan? Seriously?
Why did crack have to hit so hard - It's not good for you.
Even though it's almost over
Why niggaz can't get no jobs - The Great Recession.
Why they come up wit the witness protection - To keep people safe. Dummy.
Why they let the terminator win the election - People voted for him.
Come on, pay attention
Why sell in the stores what you can sell in the streets - Mark ups.
Why I say the hottest shit but we sellin' the least - You're sh*t isn't hot.

verse 3

Why Halle have to let a white man pop her to get a Oscar - Terrible actress.
Why Denzel have to be crooked before he took it - Make up for Hurricane?
Why they didn't make the CL6 wit a clutch - Good question #2.
And if you don't smoke why the hell you reachin' for my dutch - To cook dinner.
Why rap, cause I need air time
Why be on the curb wit a "why lie I need a beer" sign - To get beer. Dummy.
Why all the young niggaz is dyin' - Gangs, violence, guns, etc.
Cause they moms at work, they pops is gone, they livin' wit iron
Why they ain't give us a cure for aids - Ask Magic Johnson. He's got it.
Why my diesel have fiends in the spot on the floor for days - Is this a question?
Why you screamin' like it's slug, it's only the hawk - Slugs are cool.
Why my buzz in L.A. ain't like it is in New York - Because you suck.
Why you forcin' you to be hard - Image is everything.
Why ain't you a thug by choice - People are generally nicer than they look.
Why the whole world love my voice - False, Jada.
Why try to tell 'em that it's the flow son
And you know why they made the new twenties
Cause I got all my old ones - You and Fort Knox
That's why - Saying "that's why" isn't an answer to anything.

Anyway, I hope this helped shed some light on a topic that greatly needed delving into. I need some pizza.

Go big.

Law Suit...

So the guy who tattooed Mike Tyson's face is suing the producers of The Hangover II because they've re-created the tattoo on Ed Helms' face. When I first heard this a few weeks ago I rolled my eyes, but I think I'm actually on his side now. If you've ever gotten a tattoo, you know that tattoo artists are proud of their work and consider it their artwork that they're putting on your body.

No when you're dealing with art and who owns it, things can get a bit tricky. Obviously the Mona Lisa is used in many movies and I don't think they're paying dues to some Da Vinci fund to use it. But the way I see it, the guy owns the design. He doesn't own Mike Tyson, who I think should be free to go wherever he wants without paying this artist, but when they take the design and use it to their financial gain, that doesn't sit right with me. I'm not saying this guy should get a billion dollars, but he should be paid accordingly.

Musicians sell the rights to their music for movie soundtracks and I don't see this as being any different. It plays a more significant role than just a song so I think he should be paid more than whatever a musicians label gets, but he should definitely be paid.

I'm not a lawyer (much to the disappointment of my mother) but some of you are and I wonder what your stance is on the situation.

Anyway, go big. If you still haven't seen Fast Five, don't talk to me.

The Dark Knight Rises...

I'm watching The Dark Knight for the umpteenth time and I'm more secure in my belief that Batman Begins was a superior movie. That said, this movie rocks. I can't wait until next summer. 2012 is going to be ridiculous. Between Batman and The Avengers, we're in for an awesome summer. I wanted to do some movie reviews but they are all glowing so I'm just going to tell you that if you are in the mood for an awesome action movie go see Fast Five. It's the best action movie I've seen since the last FF movie. I may be the biggest fan in the world of the franchise, but I took Texas to go see it with me and he wasn't a fan of the first two, liked the second two and loved the 5th. They wrapped it up in a way that it could be over, but kept it open to make more. My dream is that one day I get to pull my kids out of school and take them to see a 50 year old Vin Diesel ripping up the streets.

Go big.

So last week I found out the perfect way to stop a street canvasser from talking to you. I was walking home from the grocery store when I noticed this girl wearing a bright neon pink t-shirt that said Planned Parenthood on it, holding a clipboard and getting ready to try and engage me. I hate these people. I love Planned Parenthood and support the organization, but god how I hate canvassers. I used to be one. For a day. Actually, it was half a day. I spent one morning training and then during our lunch break, I just dipped. I said I wasn't feeling well and never went back.

So there is no one within 100 feet of me and this girl and she sees me and I see that she sees me so I do the usual look around and act like I'm interested in the motorcycle that just drove by. I keep hoping someone will come up walking faster behind me, but as I get closer she starts waving and motioning for me to take my headphones out. First of all, don't wave at me like you know me. Second, don't tell me what to do. I'm having a good day enjoying my walk, the weather and my music and you're about to stop all of that from happening, so stop smiling. So I reluctantly take out one of my earphones, which is to act like I care but still hold firm in not wanting to talk to her. I then stop her mid-sentence and say, "Sorry. My popsicles are melting," and motion to my bag. She looked shocked that I cared more about my (non-existent) popsicles than helping her murder babies (I kid).

Anyway, I encourage you all to use ice, ice cream, popsicles or even go the opposite route and say your soup is getting cold, when stopped by these faux protectors of the earth.

Go big.
