Four black teens in Philadelphia with nothing other than weekly tranpasses and opinions. Still, the criticism and general interpretation seem to change from day to day regardless of aforementioned teens consistency.
Whatever. We're not doing anyone some terrible injustice, and we don't claim to be changing the world or enlightening the folk beyond belief or recognition. Credences, food for thought, images, a few laughs here and there, and opinions are all that we can offer you. Whether you choose to accept or decline, you are here, as are we, daily.
To face the rain or sunshine, parade or riot, cookout or Saturday detention..We ride Septa.

Today was my birthday and i went downtown copped up on some stuff and then went to south street and surprisingly enough ran into some good stuff but my main pick up of the day was the Big Gulps, my original plan was to get either the Cool Grey spizikes, motorsport's XX3 or the Venom's but i ended up getting the gulps cause they pulled my eye.....I would point out where i went to get these jawns or alot of the other cheap hot shit i got but ive been noticing alot of swagga jackin lol
With the new year approaching,hopefully some things will get left behind.
Here's a few
1.Shutter shades (as well as wearing sunglasses inside)
2.Kaffiyeh scarves (Since no one seems to understand that it symbolizes solidarity..in Palestine)
4.Terms like "Pr0lli (insert verb or adjective here)" as headlines and display names
5.Madeup names on Facebook, (Eg: Harold I'mnotcleverfordoingthis Jones)
6.Heavy duty snowboots in 50 degree weather (Can you see my issue with this..)

9.The word bitch except when restricted (SOLELY) to bitches
10.Lil Wayne (....)
11.Fake tiffany sb's (269,get it together.)
12.Songs about whisking women away from their ordinary jobs to spend money on them,and take them on vacations (Only because this contradicts 99% of songs rappers make about having 50 some women.Not everyone would enjoy themselves on THAT vacation)
13.Ralph Lauren polo caps (This goes without saying)
14.McCain campaign signs (Not that it matters anymore)
15.Sunflower seeds beneath my feet on el autobus (we sure as hell ride septa)
16.The "My dick" song (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewProfile&friendID=413639167)

20.Spam (On yo myspaCe,!n y0 mailbox, up in ya facebookz,etc)
22.Wall Street needing its ass saved (GET IT TOGETHER)
23.Customers intterupting anything that I happen to be doing (Personal issue.)
The list could go on and on.Fortunately for you #23 has me falling asleep at the keyboard.

..This guy,will be dead within Five years.Either from some of the retarded shit that he says,or from his drug abuse.
I am not a scrooge,and I never will be.With that being said,I can also say that I hate holiday shopping and not be crucified.There's no conceivable way to shop for everyone downtown a few days before Christmas,it just doesn't happen:Everything's guaranteed to be more expensive,it's cold as shit,involves a lot of walking,blah blah blah.Which makes the mall the only option. I hate the mall more than I hate holiday shopping. My experiences in King Of Prussia this evening can only make me hate the mall more than I already did.You ready?
I only like this store for one reason(take a guess)so when brother suggested that I get my pollyana's gift from here I was having my second guesses.We step into the store and immediately I'm at a loss for where to start.You've got one side with 5 for 25 panties,and neon hoodies/sweats,etc.Than you've got the grown and sexy side. Now on both sides there are little girls running around.Like,little,little girls maybe 12 years old. So as soon as we're about to turn and leave,we're approached by a saleswoman,"Can I help you?". Thank you,lord. So with her opinion on what "Normal girls" like,I managed to spend around $30 on 5 "beauty products" and maintain my composure. Thank you lady.
I don't know what it is about shiny floors and fluorescent lights that makes "party boys" want to come out and play. I mean play literally by the way, since they weren't shopping by any means. Party boys tend to all look the same,with the exception of a different colored polo cap and maybe a different myspace pose every once in a blue moon. You can count on them to be anywhere that a pretty girl is,rain or shine. In twenties at the bus stop (passing out flyers),in twenties at the corner store (passing out flyers),in twenties in the basement (copying and pasting from myspace..to make flyers),and in 50's at the mall (passing out flyers,with no shopping bags).I'm sorry if this comes off as hatin but..Gas is still relatively high for someone (or a group of people) to drive 45 minutes to King Of Prussia with the sole intention of wasting paper. Anyway,I was in American Eagle Outfitters (buying a gift for my sister) and the store was packed. It took ten minutes to get to the front of the line.So,since there were girls in there..The party boys were there too, dancing. Yes,dancing. Not a two step either,full "d-macs","wutangs","spongebobs",and whatever else they do. From what I could tell it was a battle, between "team Icanbehyperthanyoucan" and "team noyoucantimthehypest" (Ok,I made that up.But the name's aren't that much less ridiculous).Me and about 20 other customers were subjected to this for a full five minutes or so before mall security came.
Mall security is a joke,they wear helmets while riding segways.There's no need to elaborate on that.
In conclusion,I hope everyone is happy (or appreciative) of what I bought them on Christmas Morning.I left the mall with an appreciation for nothing besides Footlocker,Vans,Finishline,American Apparel,Apple, and Victoria's Secret.
This has been and remains one of my favorite songs on the album. Considering our country's economic state at the moment, this is perfect. I mean, this isn't going to make me, broken hearted, the ceo's, the betrayed, or the loser's feel better but sometimes it's just nice to know that someone has felt the same pain that I'm feeling. Shit,it's cold, it's rainy (in Philadelphia), my heart's been torn out of my throat (this is more of a personal (bordering irrational) issue), the darkest season of the year is approaching, and the recession is taking tolls on paychecks everywhere. Besides the fact that I am alive (Thank you Dear Lord), I really am not happy about much,everything has come crashing the hell down.That's where this song comes in, to remind me to get up off of my ass and do something.
Life can hurt like a mahhfuckah, but holding your heart will not help you breathe.
Whilst in the bathroom this morning I overheard the conversation between two Janitors.
Here's the important part
"Janitor 1:The nurses always tellin' people what to do and shit,
Janitor 2:Don't they know that nursing is a dummy job?"
So I forget the exact wording but,hopefully you get the gist of it. The school janitors(who were emptying the trashcans of a girls bathroom at a Public School in Philadelphia) believe that their job requires more intelligence than the school nurses job.
Oh,right!I forgot about the master degree required for a career in Janitorial services.
Not what you picture when you think "great rapper",right?Looks can be deceiving. Yes,he has that dirty white boy thing going on but his flow is cleeean (bad pun-sorry).Jay-Z recognized that,and signed him..all while this kid had on a dirty t-shirt. Asher is straight out of West Chester,PA but he manages to rap about things other than smoking and drinking (the #1 past-time in small towns).Just to make things clear,he does talk about smoking and drinking on the mixtape,though..Asher Roth is a simple guy,doesn't speak on anything he doesn't know (No clothes,no shoes,nothing material minus alcohol and weed).

Some of you might have gotten the preview of this album at the N.E.R.D/Common concert,but damn. I've yet to buy this but I listened to the whole thing and this is good shit. The beats are nuts on this album,that must be said.And rarely do I give bad reviews of my favorite artists,but "Finding forever" was ass in my opinion. This is a nice follow-up. The first few tracks were mad sexual, which is no problem...Unless of course, you're on that "hip hop is not sex" tip. (Sex is (apart of) life,so you'll have to get over it). Past the fifth track I fell into something deeper, the classic common which is probably what most fans wanted anyway. If you're a common fan already,this CD will not change that. But if you weren't a fan before,you will be after taking an honest listen.
If you're not going to buy the entire thing, at least download: What a world, Sex 4 suga,Punch drunk love, Make my day, and announcement. Those are my favorites,so far.
All day I've been singing nothing but Michael Jackson,for no reason other than the fact that he has made great music in the past.And it really makes me sick that I can't go a week without hearing a Michael Jackson joke because I honestly don't believe that he did SHIT.This is proof that the media can make and break an artist,some can take the attention and others can't. I'll flash my poetic license when I say,"honest to god, fame is a drug.".You've got Hollywood selling it's soul for a piece of it. Fame is laced with money, which is what gets celebrities "addicted.".Of course,if I had a job that paid money like "just being famous" does,I would argue that it's "just a living" as well.But we all know that that statement is bullshit. Why? A living is just the necessities, not all of the glamour and glitz that comes with fame.When 90% (not an accurate statistic but you get the idea) of artists "mature",they're actually dumbing themselves down or selling themselves out in order to sell albums,or singles. No one's going to take me seriously when I say this but,that's a lot like somebody sucking dick to feed their habit.Feel me?
