I'm still f*cked up about his passing.
This video title is real B, they don't really care about you... not until you're gone at least.
Kanye said "they don't give the flowers while you can still smell them" on Big Brother
Realest shit he ever spoke.
I cant really focus on anything else.
Shout out to Farrah Facett too, RIP to one of Charlie's Original Angels.
We here @ Kamakacci want to express our deep sorrow and regret to inform y'all that the King of Pop, Mr. Michael Jackson has passed away. A clip from CNN is as follows:
"Entertainer Michael Jackson has died after being taken to a hospital on Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest, according to multiple reports including the Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press. CNN has not confirmed his death. Jackson, 50, had been in a coma at the hospital, sources told CNN"
It hasnt been confirmed, but it is ALL over the news right now.
If he's not dead, this is the meanest publicity stunt ever.
If he is, may God Bless his Soul, & protect his family from the heartache that goes hand in hand with losing someone dear to you.
Personally, I am shocked, & deeply saddend.
The dude was not perfect, nor he was very normal, but the torment he endured at the hands of the media, and public could have only assisted in his deteriorating health & mental conditions.
His obsessions with Peter Pan & children, the thought of everlasting youth, is something that people could not identify with, and eventually alienated him as he grew older.
What upsets me the most, is the legalities he was embroiled in as of recent. The issues with the Jackson 5 tour that he got pressured into doing because he signed a contract and tried to reneg - the training he was receiving to get in shape for the 50 stop tour - I'm sure all theese factors had an effect on him in his last days.
Mike Jack is a trailblazer. Without Heal The World there would be no LiveAid. Moonwalking wouldnt be so sensationalized. He put being Black on the map, long before Oprah, making it necessary for MTV to play black artists.
People of today have a distorted image, and young people may only know him for the scandals that clouded his latter years.
Pleasebeleevit, the man fathered your style, one way or another.
When it came to music for black, white, yellow & brown, he was The Essential.
Rest In Peace Michael Jackson, of Gary Indianna 1958 - 2009.
Besides "Rich Off Cocaine", this the next best thing smokin' off that Deeper Than Rap album.
People been hating, & I love it.
Continue to make hits Officer Rick, & ride beats better than half these n*ggas in the game. His pen game may not be strong, nor his credibility @ this point, but all he can literally do is; what he is currently doing.
Catch the flip @ the end by Gunplay...you know that hurt.

Ol' girl wont have an issue getting out of this one.
Your friendly Neighbouring Country President was having a town hall @ Southwest High School in Green Bay yesterday, & was asked a question about health care by John Corpus, who was accompanied by his daughter, Kennedy.
He informed Obama that his daughter was missing school to be present, so what does Mr. President do?
What any respectable President would do. He writes the pickney a note:
"To Kennedy's teacher:
Please excuse Kennedy's absence.
She's with me.

I'm gonna be honest. I've never been a big fan of Eminem. I recognize talent, I recognize skill, both of which he genuinely possesses. What he doesnt possess is stand alone quality. I always tell people, "he only hot on other niggas joints"(that usually comes up because of Renegade, Love Me, anything on Chronic 2001).
Let's be real, while niggas enjoy his shit too, its primarily white people that love this guy. For that displaced caucasian @ the start of the millenium when HipHop had/was cemented/ing it's place in mainstream, white boys & girls did not know how to openly rep what they liked. A legitimate skilled white rapper did the trick. He put his bum on your lips(twice), never saw an ass like that, & lost himself...a few times...& people still love dude. That was before 2009, when riding the wave of a gimmick (being white) didnt require him to really connect.
It's mid 2009, and dude is still making "hits" selling over 600k in opening week of Relapse. Sincere congrats to him, however it appears people may have gotten tired of his routine.
I'm not making this up, couldn't if I tried.
This is a excerpt from a concert goer @ the LA show w/ Jay-Z (posted below). I'm not knocking his performance skills, but it seems that people are realizing this dude's skill is above, while music is sub par. If you look back at his singles, yikes.
"When Eminem rapped with Jay [at the launch concert for the new DJ Hero video game] , the crowd loved it," said one eyewitness. "But when he continued on his own and did songs off his new album, the energy just died. People were pumped to see him, but he wasn't interacting with his fans. His performance was mechanical, without a lot of personality, and people were pretty disappointed."
Said a second partygoer, "After Eminem finished his set, he left the stage and was waiting on the sidelines, hoping that the crowd would cheer so that he'd have to do an encore. Unfortunately for him, that didn't happen - people started to file out before his set was even done, and didn't seem to really care if he came back or not. So he didn't." -NY Daily News
This is the same sitution with G.Unit. They rode the wave, word to Biggaveli. It was all pull, barely any push when the Unit first appeared. They took over. Now that people actually have to work to promote, they dont know what the FUCK they doing. Holla @ Sha$XL... thats almost a direct quote.
Interscope is over. Defjam is over. The Bridge been over.
Seems Atlantic is the new Zion, word to Blueprint III's alleged home.
Mr.TO.OnHisBack is on the other side of the pond in the UK doing an interview, being the cool, down to earth type nigga he really is.
He addresses going independent, the SOB performance, & basically gives it away that he is giving the pipe to Rihanna.
Way to go.
The newest cosign of Hip Hop's MJ bears the same initial, followed by Cole instead of the letter Z.
Tentatively signed to Iceberg's newest independnt imprint, Roc Nation, this slim nigga is hungry, and eats the mic on this track.
J.Cole aka Young Simba go hard.

This has got to be one of the dopest lyrical tracks in the last...shit, i dunno.
4 superlyrical niggas in one group, one track. They bars so ill, it takes all 8 mins plus to envelop their potent product.
Turn the volume up, and take in the real.
