Nas on Derrion Albert w/ CNN’s Don Lemon

Posted in Black Culture, Pop Culture with tags , , , , , , on October 6, 2009 by HaZiQ aLi

Two things are sorta striking to me here:
1) The weird smirk he has on the whole time.. the whole time, and
2) With due respect to whoever posted this originally, he does not sound brilliant here, he sounds like an idiot. Not Cam’ron-on-60minutes-stupid, no, but that “being-a-rapper-is-the-one-place-you-get-power-with-NO-responsibility” argument is sooooo lame nowadays… and Nas knows this if noone else does.. thats probably why he’s holding back laughter- that and the fact they start with a clip from one of the wackest- and least reresentative- songs of his career…

Whatever tho- guess he WAS better than some of the others they couldve had as reps for hiphop on this nat’l platform… What do you think? How did he do here?

Was hoping the 49th law was "put your album out" but apparently not..

I just decided. Im going to start reviewing books on here too man, I’m a big fan of 48 laws of power, 33 strategies of war, etc. The author/historian behind these is also the writer behind this one… Robert Greene. Here’s the interview with both of them-when it comes to 50 it seems like they literally wanna say “he speaks so well”..
The other thing inotice is when he had to mention jay z he did it with shawn carter,his govt name… NO shine for NOBODY u aint eatin wit’ on your watch eh,50? :-$

Best to ever do it.....

Best to ever do it.....

My fave quote from the following article…. “the singer bought the catalog in 1985 for $47.5 million. In the early 2000s, he borrowed $300 million against the catalog.” (these publishin co investments means MJ’s estate controls everything from Destiny’s Child songs to Ray Charles to yeeess..Elvis…

my second references what they call his “legendary” impulse buying habit.. I mean what? A man cant buy himself a full circus? What’s the problem?
