“MICHAEL VICK” : LET THEM DOGS FIGHT

Posted by HG on July 27, 2007

**UPDATE. YBB HAS MOVED. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE NEW SITE OR GO TO YOUBEENBLINDED.COM**

The homeboy Eskay at Nah Right put me on to this song. First things first, it’s not actually Michael Vick rapping, it’s not a Bad Newz remex. It’s more than likely this dude, and the song is idiotic to say the least. It doesn’t matter which side of the argument you’re on regarding the Vick situation, making a song about electrocuting dogs is ignorant. Don’t believe me?

“Mike Vick” Let Them Dogs Fight

Told ya… When it comes to the Michael Vick case I didn’t tell ya. I thought it was suspicious that the feds were saying an indictment was unlikely, but I believed them when they told the league and the Falcons that no indictment was coming. That was dumb. They were leaving the door open for the eventual indictment. More on this soon..

ZIP SET, ZIP SET, ZIP SET

Posted by HG on July 9, 2007

The Zips, originally the Zippers, have a kangaroo  as their mascot. W.T.F.? That’s just as stupid as the Stanford tree. As for the song, I’ll give J20 some credit for holdin it down for his kanga. Some Cam’ron style lyrics with kangaroo or Zips repeated 72 times woulda been classic, but not everybody can create a masterpiece.

RAKIM AND JERRY RICE 2K8

Posted by HG on July 1, 2007

I like the combination of the God and the G.O.A.T. What this will do for 2K8’s sales? I have no idea. I rarely play video games anymore but in my day I was a Madden guy. There was a time in the late 90s when I experimented with NFL Gameday, and I played one of the 2Ks for an evening, but Madden was still the one.

I don’t play video games anymore because I suddenly became a cool adult. No more days of sitting around for hours on end playing video games with friends or strangers online. Nope, now I hang out for hours on end in the cool confines of my parents basement, wearing only my underwear, typing about sports or the latest video game commercial. I’m all grown up now.

What up to Nah Right Lite..

JAZZY JEFF AND AI TALKIN’ ABOUT PRACTICE

Posted by HG on June 30, 2007

 The track, Practice, can be found on Jazzy Jeff’s latest album “The Return of the Magnificent”. It features J-Live and the infamous Allen Iverson “we talkin about practice” sample. The track is cool, it’s far from the best on the album, but the AI clip makes it worthwhile the first couple of listens.

Shout out to: Jazzy Jeff for puttin it down back in the day when DJs were DJs. He was “cuttin’ and scratchin’ ” and of course transforming.

Big Up to: Free Darko for bumpin this video first.

LEBRON JAMES RAP SONG

Posted by HG on June 6, 2007

lebron-sprite.jpg

LeBron James isn’t joining the long list of athletes that thought their ballin’ prowess meant they could rhyme… At least not yet.. And I hope never because 99% of the time the athlete sets Hip Hop back 3-5 years. It’s been covered before here at YBB (E-Dubbs, what up bruh?) when Desmond Mason did a decent job of spittin but it has to be said again.. Athletes, just play ball and rappers, just make music. Please.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way.. The folks over at Sprite had a contest to make a LeBron James theme song.. Like that cat needed anything else.. And they got Paul Wall and Al Fatz to drop a bar or two on it. You can listen to the track here. I believe that’s Al Fatz rapping in LeBron persona, not actually LeBron rapping. Thank you Jeeezus.

That song (^^) is 100% better than this song/video which was given to me by the fella Icon from around the way at NahRight.com.

Shout out to Eskay of NahRight, the Osiris of this ish, for getting me the track.

DREAMS OF BEING NBA RICH

Posted by HG on May 3, 2007

The rapper The Game is known for making outlandish statements. He is known for flip flopping his feelings. I wonder how long it will be before he takes back what he said about Baron Davis:

I don’t know what’s funnier in this video… The fact that the people in the conference room gave Game a sitting ovation before he started talking, Game labeling Kwame Brown and the rest of Kobe’s supporting cast as “dump ass players”, or Jayceon claiming “I useta kill B.D. (Baron Davis)”… Regardless, I’m sure there’ll be another video out next week where Game says he never said any of this.

Props to 2x off the block at NahRight for bringing this video to my attention.

LET’S TAKE IT TO THE STAGE SUCKA

Posted by HG on April 26, 2007

Loaded? check. Suns fan? check. Video camera? check. Ready to rap?

“They got their eyes on the prize and I’ll tell you whys”, “Coming froma coming from Brazil like Barbosa, he’ll blow by you and then he’ll toast you, in the toaster”, and “they got goat boy, go back to Germany, go back to Berlin” are some of my favorite lyrics of all time. Tell me one MC he wouldn’t smash in a battle..

Kobe Bryant took exception to the “they’ll close line you like Raja Bell” line and demanded that I show this video:

That video’s from back in the day.. Way back when Kobe wore number 8.. After seeing Otto flex his bilingual skills and playing the obligatory “rappin’ in a wifebeater” card, I don’t know why his album didn’t take off. He even got Tyra Banks on the track.. She only danced on stage because nothing says professional model and television host like backin your thang up at NBA All-Star weekend. I can’t wait to see Barbara Walters dancing for Ron Artest next year.

If you can’t quite make out what Kobe’s sayin, they claim to have the lyrics here.

IT’S ON NOW

Posted by HG on April 19, 2007

 jason-whitlock-bunnies.jpg

**HG’s note: I wasn’t planning to talk about Whitlock unless he did something or said something new. I found the song I had written about earlier so I had to drop this.**

When I found out that Jason Whitlock was working with “gangsta rappers” I labled him a hypocrite. He helped produce a Kansas City Chiefs theme song that’s performed by the type of people Jason says are ruining the black community. I talked about that here.

Now you can listen to the song. The lyrics aren’t overly gangsta, but if I was writing a Whitlockesque Hip Hop critique I could find fault with the language. I wasn’t expecting anything too hardcore since it’s for the Chiefs, and it’s dedicated to Derrick Thomas.

My only issue with any of this is that Whitlock has been so adamant about his disdain for Hip Hop yet he’s working with the 57th Street Rogue Dog Villians. Something tells me their cd is a little different from a Mos Def or Common cd. It was probably their MySpace page (where Whitlock is listed as a friend) that tipped me off.

I’m all for people being succesful. I’m not mad at Jason for being all over tv garnering national attention. I’m mad that he’s trying to put down Hip Hop in order to raise up his career. He must have forgotten about this:

When Jason Whitlock, a sportswriter for the Kansas City Star and sometimes sports reporter on ESPN commissioned 5150 to produce all the music for his radio show the opportunity allowed 5150 to reach a larger more mainstream audience and aided in its being recognized as a legitimate fixture in the rap hip/hop production industry..so much so that the team at 5150 was asked to create fight songs for the Kansas City Royals baseball team and the University of Missouri’s basketball team.

Whitlock, my brotha, just tell us what it is. Are you still rolling with the Villians? Do you condone their use of the “N” word? Do you use the “N” word when you’re hangin with them? Did you tell Oprah you’re an aspiring Hip Hop producer?
