Another one bites the dust!

June 9, 2008

Uh-oh. Add Warren G to the list of people who got busted with the sticky icky.

“Warren G has been arrested in Los Angeles on a drug charge after police pulled over the car he was riding in.

Police say the 35-year-old rapper was arrested early yesterday (June 8 ) after being pulled over for a red light violation. Officer Karen Smith says marijuana was found in the vehicle.

The rapper’s real name is Warren Griffin III. Both he and the driver, Ryan Butler, were booked for investigation of possession of a controlled substance. They each posted $20,000 bail and were released.

Attempts to reach Griffin or a representative last night were unsuccessful.”

Yikes. Sucks to be you, my brotha.

Sorry, but the only thing I can think of when it comes to Warren G is that damn “Shake dat Monkey” song. Don’t have much sympathy.

Rant of the Day: Lollipop

June 9, 2008

First off congratulations are in order. Lil Wayne finally has a hit. ::golf claps:: Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been a fan since his I was a stan for Cash Money back in the 7th grade. I always thought it was ridiculous how he never made it big. He had ridiculous talent, but just when it seemed like he would be a mixtape-in-the-back-of-someones-car forever he surprises us.

I first heard of “Lollipop” back in late March. I was impressed and from the first listen I knew it was going to be a hit. It started out slow, but built up fast and now he has reached a level where I have to complain.

First of all, there is a time to retire a song. I wish radio stations could retire songs after a certain number of plays, like TRL did ( or does I haven’t watched in ages). Quite frankly, I’m sick and tired of hearing that damn growling “He’s so sweet….”. Its so overplayed. I heard it in the car 4 times yesterday in the span of 2 hours. No No NO!

When my 11 year old brother has heard the song enough to know what words go in the beeps, its gone too far.

When my dad who only listens to the radio when he’s in the car with me ( which is rare) knows the words, its gone too far.

When my mother, who is clueless to most things pop culture, knows who Lil Wayne is and can identify a song, it has gone waaay too far.

Wayne you owe me a milli for having to listen to this damn song over and over again.
