Recession hits rappers. Be on the lookout for cubic zirconia and iron pyrite bling yo. Obama to socialize hip-hop industry…yo.

The recession is hitting rappers hard.  No more stackin’ bank for these mofos.  Sales of gold and diamond “grillz” are down 60%.  Some hip hop artists are resorting to fake gold and cubic zirconia in their bling and their grillz, yo.  That ain’t dope.  That ghetto.

“A lot of these rappers simply don’t have the money for real stuff anymore.”
“It’s to the point where they are wearing imitation jewelry, and that’s ridiculous.”
“People think these big pieces are blindin’ but they be like D-quality diamonds, and when you try and sell them you learn they ain’t worth a thing.”
“If you admit you wear fake jewelry, it is over for you. It’s like bragging you drive a Lamborghini when you really drive a Toyota.”

“Times are hard, ain’t nobody rocking it like that anymore,” says rapper and record executive Bryan “Birdman” Williams.

…actually Mr. Williams, you’ve employed a what is called “double negative.”  What you stated means that they are in fact “rocking it like that.”

The vultures opportunists are circling

Now places are popping up like, where rappers can exchange their bling for cash.  I’m sure it is pennies on the dollar…. Pardon me, “dolla” yo.


Perhaps it is time for President Obama to step in?  It is time for the government to bail out and socialize the hip-hop industry.  Hip-hop is just too big for us to allow it to fail.

Got an email from a client today.

“Hey we recorded in your studio back in 1991.  Do you still have our master tapes?”

Wow.  And I can’t even find my car keys.

Pandora’s algo needs some tweaking

I listen to Pandora every day.  Lately though I think their algorithm has gone haywire.

While listening to the Peter Gabriel channel, Pandora played The Used and The Osmond Boys.  Uh, no.



Client: “What is the turnaround time on your five business day package?”

Me: “Five business days.”

Client: “Great thanks.”

Boneheads is mega cool

Man what a cool web site for women called Don’t Date Him Girl @

It is a site for women to write about and rate the bad men they’ve dated. If you want some pure entertainment read some of the posts these women have written about their men. I’m not sure what is more pathetic, these lousy men, or the fact that these women stay with them for years.


“dated him for 5 years. He was nothing but drugged out the whole time. When I was sleeping he would steal my cell phone, my car and my money and go god knows where and wake up at some whores house. He lied and lied to me about having to work late but he was really sleeping with one of his managers. He also slept with 1 of my best friends and 4 other friends. He is nothing but a compulsive liar who will manipulate you to no end. Then when I broke up with him he stalked me and would break into my car and follow me when ever I went anywhere. STAY AWAY FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!”

How pathetic or desperate is this person to stay with a guy for 5 years who was “drugged out all the time” and slept with all of her friends…
