Three Months Till I'm Four Years From Thirty...

February 6th is the date of my 26th birthday, lord willin', I'll be able to celebrate it. I'm thankful to have made it to this point three months before that date but believe me- I'm terrified of getting older. It's actually the fear of getting so much closer to 30. I'm nowhere near where I'd like to be at that milestone, and now I only have four years! Under pressure.

I was gonna go deeper into that train of thought, but I figured I'd spare y'all. And talk about my plans, or lack of them...

Keiko's birthday is 2 weeks before mine (Aquarian like Mommy!), and for her 4th, I'm thinking-Chuckie Cheese bash and maybe cupcakes at daycare. As for me...

My birthday falls on a Friday in '09, and I haven't the slightest idea what the plan is, because I'm not very good at labeling "what 'fun' means to me". I like Grown and Sexy sometimes, most of the time I'd rather "Broke and Boujee". I like heels and pretty dresses sometimes, but I love dope kicks all the time. It'll have to be a mix of events. If I could only get Jaycee to scratch for me (wink, wink, homie)... Now I'm excited again!

We Major...

Damn Tip. I peeped this vid over at the Kaos Effect. I always kinda thought T.I. was cute when he cracked a grin but I wasn't sure why. It's those PERFECT teeth! Peep your girl Chelsea interviewing the kid. I don't think I can be more proud of Tip than I am after having watched this! She usually bulldozes people, but he held his own here...

Should Be Out Partying...

It is BET Awards weekend here in the A. Instead I'm at the crib, barely eating, looking at constant Twits about the events, lamenting over the current state of my personal ish. I won't go into details but I will say that whatever happens... Is whatever happens. I saw this pic of Nas and Kelis at their last show in New York and felt like posting it. That is all.

Go Pro-Activity!

So I interviewed with the people at the newest W hotel out here. The Frenchie that interviewed me was kinda snippety but whatever, it appears that I got the gig for cocktail waitress. I should be excited right? Well... I would be if- they didn't hire me, and then tell me that it would be three weeks until the beginning of orientation. At least I can keep my writing up... So I came directly home, had a Heineken or two and caught a few "Curb Your Enthusiams". Instantly brightened my day up. I never really got into Seinfeld (shout out to Wale!) but I love the cat behind it; Larry David is absolutely hilarious. Look, I even provided a clip!

I Had No Idea...

Things have gotten to this point... Found this video today at the Kaos Effect about dudes and their "purses". I've gotta admit that I've never really thought about it. I mean, I stay in Atlanta, the center of Black Gay Pride, so it's something that I've gotten used to seeing. I don't necessarily see anything wrong with a guy walking around with a messenger bag if there's paperwork for work/school, or dough for the strip club in there, but there's no reason for you, as a grown man to be walking around with a purse just to be able to say, "See? It's a Gucci purse. I got bread!" Chicks need purses, like me, I have a bunch of random shit in my purse: tampons, lipgloss, candy, aspirin, makeup bag, plus the regular: wallet, keys. Everyone is gonna do them regardless right? So if I fuck witchu, I'ma do that regardless of whether or not you have a purse. I don't care that much. But it is funny.

I Can't Wait For This Album To Drop...

I love Luda. Everything I've heard so far offa Theatre is crazy. I haven't been this excited since like, Chicken and Beer. I mean, don't get me wrong, I always felt that he was dope: it's like 'lackluster' for Ludacris, is still pretty damn good. I can't even officially say 'lackluster' referring to his recent projects, 'different' would be a better word to use. Peep him and Ninth in the studio doing the Spike Lee Joint! BK stand up!

"Just Be Wildin' on You/ Just Be Stylin' on You..."

Atlanta DJ Jaycee posted this video a couple weeks ago, and I have no idea when it was officially posted on MTV but I gotta put it on here because it is absolutely hilarious! Just to set you up here: Jaycee put up a post about the woes of stylin' on somebody; if the dude in the first vid looks familiar, that's the cat E6 from MTV's From Gs to Gents.

Then Jay posted the next vid which is Questlove's take on the results of stylin'. Flippin' retarded! LOL!

Pretty Boy Bam Bam...

Where the hell have I been? I knew nothing of this little boy until Luda's "Undisputed". I tried to box once with a friend who does it and that shit is definitely harder than it looks. He told me that I caught on pretty quickly to have never done it before but I don't even think that he as a grown man could fuck with this little boy! LOL. And he's adorable.

Realize Who You Dealing With...

I effin' love Maino! Not just because he reps my hometown, but he also reps it well. I mean, it's crazy because I just posted something with his hook in the title. Apparently, this past weekend he was approached by Young Berg in the club and ended up slapping the shit outta him! It seemed inevitable, he's a little dude with a huge mouth. Jarvis saw him at Gorilla Zoe's album release party down in the city a few months ago and said that he's shorter than me (I'm 5'4") and was chasing a flat-bootied, light skinned girl around the parking lot. She obviously knew who he was, with that damn Transformers chain, but she wasn't giving him no play. A couple months after that, I saw him while I was at work at the Twelve, up in some chick's condo ordering all this food, looking at me like I should've recognized him, which I did, but c'mon, I ain't about to act like it, especially after that "dark butts" comment. He was goading me and all that too, "Hey, why you look so serious? You should smile... C'mon, you can smile with me." "I'm working. Is that your credit card?" So this was the funniest shit I coulda heard about this morning.

Maino's words: “He didn’t come to me asking a question, he was like stepping to me. If you got a question for me, ask me in a way that we can talk about it. Don’t approach me like it’s a problem,” Maino continued. “I did a little bit of God’s work, I tried to discipline him.”
“I’m a man before anything so if I’m at a club and somebody approach me in a disrespectful manner, what are you supposed to do? I don’t know how to handle it any other kind of way. I feel like I just gave him something light,” Maino added. “When you think about what could have happened…I’m around 20 people in my area and he came up to me asking me was I talking about him recklessly. I had no idea what he was talking about. I felt like I did him a favor. I tried to sober him up because something was wrong with him.”

You See Me?/ Hi Hater!

Now, as much as I respect Jim Jones and his role in the Dip Set phenomenon 'round the turn of the millenium, I can't help but feel as if someone's bitter right now. Apparently, Jimmy had an interview with Complex where he airs out how he really feels about T.I. and Jay-Z's swag:

On T.I.

"I don’t feel like he possesses any swag. Not like that. It’s fabricated. They’re watching other people, then they try and do it. You know people that dress like T.I.? You know people that go out and say let me get a T.I. outfit or do you know people who say “yo, you’re looking like Jim Jones?” Which one? Lemme hear it! When the b*tches want to f*ck you and the n*ggas want be like you, who got the swag? N*ggas with money and fame always going to look like they doing something ’cause they got the camera in front of them. But the cool dudes always stick out no matter where they at."

On Jay-Z

"...look at the Vibe cover. Tell me who Jay-Z looks like in there? Did you see the picture of him? With the Louis Vuitton scarf and all that. Who did that resemble? You can say it. But he did it wrong; he had a Gucci belt with a Louis Vuitton scarf. Who does that? You smell me? That’s like wearing one Nike and one Puma; how you going to get away with that? But I didn’t take the song as a shot, because I don’t feel like none [besides Weezy] of them possess any swag."

Can't you almost see the hate steaming from his words? He misses the point of swagger completely. Swagger is pulling the "I'm fly" shit off, and acting like, "It's nothing. I do this. I ain't even paying attention to whether or not people biting my style, 'cause tomorrow I'll be on some whole other shit." He's like a little kid with that shit. Obviously there's still bad blood between he and Jay but I felt some kinda way about his remarks on T.I. It's not like they ever had beef. I like Dip Set but I still know 'em as Harlem, and sometimes Harlemite dudes don't think before they speak. They're just loud and wanna be heard. He must have an album about to come out...
*As seen on Street Cred.
