Bill O’Rielly

I can’t stand this dude! I just read a recent article where he was calling himself a “brother” because he knows the difference between Ice-T and Ice Cube. Apparently he was talking with another Fox News journalist Bernie Goldberg and calling him the Whitest person he knows. So to combat that Goldberg shows him a photo that he took with Ice Cube and said this is a picture of me and Ice-T which O’Reilly responded by saying that’s Ice Cube not Ice-T and that he’s a brother and he knows the difference between the Ts and the Cubes.

Ice Twitter

Ice took the words right out of my mouth!

His show is completely one sided and if you’re in his hot seat then you’re better off coming out alive sitting on an electric chair. On the plus side Ice-T responded on his Twitter account and I’ll let the photo say it all…

I hope this dude gets what’s coming to him because the more I hear about him the more he pisses me off!! Another thing that pisses me off and I’m targeting the rappers now is why they humor these Republicans like Bernie Goldberg. All they do is talk bad about their music and how they are negative to our society, completely dismissing their positive work either in music or the community. Rappers if you hate Republicans, don’t sign autographs, take photos, perform at their son’s bar mitzvahs, anything these clowns ask for. I know money makes the world go round but Republican money is worse than blood money!

WC & The Maad Circle – Ain’t A Damn Thang Changed

I wanted this song to be the first song I post in the Hip Hop Gold category for the New Year for a reason. When it comes to the New Year people always want to change, you know with all that New Year’s resolution and all that crap, but not all change is good. A lot of people get to a certain point in life or achieve some goal and then all of a sudden, they believe that they are better than someone else. So I’ll leave you to enjoy this song with a quote from the Immortal Dead Prez, “Don’t forget where you’re going but never forget where you came from.”

YO! MTV RAPS

YO! MTV RAPS

Back when the M stood for Music and not MORONIC

If you’re a child of the ‘80s like me, then you grew up watching MTV but before you skip this post, let me take you back to when MTV actually stood for Music Television and not MORONIC. MTV started out as an all music channel broadcasting videos 24/7 thus the name Music Television. At around the late ‘80s, early ‘90s Hip Hop was booming and becoming popular amongst teens.

MTV started to have a Hip Hop section to their show and ended up calling it YO! MTV RAPS.  The show was 2 hours long and was hosted by Fab-5 Freddy, Ed Lover and Doctor Dré (not to be confused by Dr. Dre of NWA Fame). The show ran for 7 years and had solidified itself in pop culture as we know it. YO! MTV RAPS helped certain Hip Hop groups establish themselves as hardcore rappers such as Public Enemy, N.W.A. and Ice T.

Now that we got the history lesson out of the way, I love hip hop music because of the content that the rappers rap about, a listener such as myself can relate to, but that’s not how it is anymore. The Hip Hop market nowadays is oversaturated with artists, producers and even labels. The mainstream Hip Hop is very materialistic in its content and you can’t relate to it. Basically, what I’m trying to say is, Hip Hop and the artists nowadays are straight garbage.

So when I heard that MTV will air a 20th Anniversary show of YO! MTV RAPS, I was excited especially when I heard that Fab-5 Freddy, Ed Lover and Doctor Dré are going to host it again. The artists that are going to be on the show are old school but are still relevant in the mainstream like Busta Rhymes, Fat Joe and Ice Cube. I can tolerate that, but here is where it gets wack and starts pissing me off!

The show will only be aired once at midnight on December 3rd and it’s a half hour long show only. There will be only so much music videos and talking segments they can have in 30 minutes. And on top of all of that, Wiz Khalifa is going to be on the show. Why is Wiz Khalifa on the show?!? He has nothing to do with old school Golden Era Hip Hop music and is far from being in the same category as artists like Rakim or 2Pac. It’s stuff like this that TV industry reps know how to do to kill off the hype. If you feel the same way or you actually think the show will still rock like its 1993 then feel free to post a comment, otherwise, this is Livin’ Large and you’ve been Largely Livin’
