Dearest Hip Hop,

Dearest Hip Hop,

I'm sure you weren't aware, but last night, Atlanta's hip hop station HOT 107.9 held their 3rd annual Dirty Awards, where artists from the south are recognized and a few even performed.
Me, personally, didn't care to go because I had heard Soulja Boy & Shawty Lo were performing and they're just not my "cup of tea" put mildly.

But anyway, I shouldn't have been surprised, but I was...
a FIGHT broke out DURING Yung LA's single "Ain't I" [which features Young Dro & TI] performance.

Maybe I shouldn't of laughed, but Dude in the orange straight DEEBO'd ["Get knocked out like your Daddy use to"]...But, the show must go on! ROFLMAO&SMH..craziness.

I think it's a damn shame when people act like this & F**k up everyone else's good time.

This reminds me of my 1st concert & how negros messed it up for me...[yes, negros].

It was January 1999, I believe I was in the 10th grade. My birthday was around the corner and my mother decided to get me A TICKET [yes, only ONE] to the Ruff Ryder/Cash Money Concert at the Oakland Arena in Oakland, CA.

[Remember this is when Cash Money was the HOT BOYZ & RUFF RYDERS had EVE & DMX and all that good stuff.]

So, luckily for me, a few of my homegirls also got tickets to the concert, so we all rode together. I remember after arriving to crowded venue, we had to seperate to get to our seats. They went up...towards the balcony & I went down...towards the floor & stage.

I don't remember who was performing when we arrived, but I do remember getting to my seat and getting to enjoy, then, Ms. Ruff Ryder herself, E-V-E.
After performing singles from her debut CD, which I LOVED, there was a ten minute intermission.

After about 3 minutes into the intermission, I heard a lot of yelling behind me so I turn around to see a group of people on the floor fighting a group of people in the 1st level seats.

During the chaos, A.J. Johnson [remember he was Ezal in the movie Friday], came out on stage telling a few jokes to try to calm the crowd down.
That sh*t did not happen.

People got rowdier & the next thing I know People were running everywhere, Screaming.
I'm completely LOST & confused.
Next thing I know, someone grabs me over a railing and pulls me backstage. Who? I have no clue. Within a few seconds, panic take place, but then I notice some girl that goes to my school. [still dont remember her name]..LoL.

We say hi and decided to team up to find our homies.
Luckily, everyone was already at the vehicle, safe, by the time I had arrived.

But because of Dumb Sh*t I never got to see all the Ruff Ryders or the Hot Boyz or any of the other performers.

But when I got home, the news had reported the following;

Oakland concert ends in riot

Juvenile and the Hot Boys never took the stage for the 12,000 hip-hop fans in attendance Friday night at the Oakland Coliseum Arena. Instead, the show was cancelled when fights broke out that left 17 people injured, three highway exits closed and more than 170 police officers called to the scene. Several fights broke out around 9 p.m., shortly after opening acts Eve and Ginuwine completed their sets. Comedian A.J. Johnson had taken the stage in an effort to calm the crowd, but he and the arena security lost control as several separate fights broke out, eventually resulting in a mad scramble to the exits. Many of those fleeing returned after hearing at least four shots fired outside. One eyewitness told The 411 Online he saw a man fall "from the nosebleeds all the way down to the lower section." The eyewitness also saw one fan get hit by a folding chair, another get attacked by at least five other fans and one stabbing. "Someone pulled out some scissors and stabbed someone, that's when I and everyone else bolted out of there and just ran, jumping over chairs just trying to get away," the eyewitness said, echoing similar reports in area newspapers. Damage was estimated at $2,000 to $5,000 and included sinks in some restrooms, a broken metal detector and a broken door, according to the San Francisco Examiner. There's no telling what kind of effect this might have on the upcoming Cash Money-Ruff Ryder tour, which originally was scheduled to start Feb. 9, but was pushed back to Feb. 24 last week.

Dearest Kanye,

Dearest Kanye,

I first heard this song a few months ago. Where? I dont remember.
But I can tell you that I listen to this shyt damn near everyday on my way to Hell [aka work]. Its sort of like my Anthem...LoL

This is a CLASSIC! You spit so hard on this song...smh...its ridiculous.

WORD4WORD, its one of my favorite joints o.a.t. [of all time].

If you aren't one of Hip Hop's top 5 MCs...then WHO THE HELL IS?!

So, Thank You for Going HARD! Thank you for giving all these other lames something to go up against.

"I'ma tell you like George Bush told me, F**k yall niggas, I'm outta here"...LOL

PS: Do you need me to get you a Gilette 3?

Dearest Floyd Mayweather,

Dearest Floyd Mayweather,

I remember a few months ago hearing you were going to be at a club out here in Atlanta and although you made it rain, excuse me, BLIZZARD in that were throwing counterfeit cash.
A local radio dj asked you about that and you responded with something like you had got it straight from the bank, so the bank must be giving out fake shyt...hmmMMmm

[While we're speaking of counterfeit cash, let me tell you about MY counterfeit experience].

Now, 1st let me tell you that I'm a bartender, so I am constantly handling cash. Like most people who deal with that moola on a daily basis, I mark the 20, 50 & 100 dollar bills with the money marker, but one day someone got my ass.

I was at Chic-Fil-A ordering me a chicken biscuit & sweet tea
before I went into Hell [thats what I call my place of employment ;)] and handed the old ass lady a TEN DOLLAR BILL. Next thing I know she's holding it up to the light, flipping it from front to back-back to front & disappears behind that heavy looking swinging door. A few minutes later, a tall white man marches out and just says, "We can NOT accept this" waving the money in the air.

I looked at his ass like he crazy. "Why not?" I asked as I realize how I must of looked to the rest of the people in line, being the minority and all. "This is a fake ten dollar bill." he says. "What?" I reply realizing some lousy guest at work must of given it to me.
So I put my hand back out expecting to receive my money back and he shakes his narrow ass head side to side and says, "I can not give this back to you. I am suppose to call the police..." and on that note I said f**k it and walked out the door PISSED that I was out ten dollars and still hungry. The End ;)

Back to the situation at hand...

I recently came across this little video & it amused the hell out of me. To see you walk out on stage [shout out to the big bodyguard with the lil locks...use to see his ass all the time at THE LIBRARY] and throw ALL that cash is kinda breathtaking.

I saw the stacks...smh...and it just makes me...
SO DAMN HAPPY that my ass was nowhere near the vicinity of that event.
I am POSITIVE people were losing their minds!

Anyways, I'm happy you're sharing your wealth with the people--no matter how many hoes and grown ass men stomp each other out.
Its a positive thing, right??!


Dearest Hip Hop

Dearest Hip Hop,

The other day I was browsing the web and came across the video below.
[shout out to NECOLEBITCHIE].

Personally, I am SOooOO sick of Weezy F. Baby I dont know what to do.
So many people have jumped on Weezy's UFO that my ass had to get the hell off [plus I dont think he's as hot as he could be...But thats a whole another letter].

Anywho, after watching THE 1ST 2 MINUTES, [which you can FF through, its just a lot of talking], I was so sad to hear this Weezy joint WORD4WORD..LoL..

This joint has made the Rock billboards....Wow

Dearest Nigga,

Dearest Nigga,

This was funny to me, so forgive me if it isn't suppose to be laughed at, but a
few nights ago I was flipping through my bootleg cable and came across 50 cent [with Tony Yayo & Lloyd Banks in the bkgd] performing the title track to the MTV show, 50 CENT: THE MONEY & THE POWER, "Get Up" for a bunch of teenie boppers on MTV's TRL finale.

I stopped flipping for a minute and caught just enough of the performance [the last chorus] & noticed Carson Daly [or some white dude] say "Give it up for 50 Cent & Tony Banks".

Now, at home, I chuckled [LoL] because dude was so confident when he said it, it was like he didn't realized he fu**d up for like 1mississippi2mississippi3mississippi seconds.

Now below is Kid Rock laughing at the same scene...but peep what he says.

Peace Out Girl Scout

What do YOU think?

Dearest Broke Ass,

Dearest Broke Ass,

Im just curious...why do you come to the resturant I work at, sit in my section, run me like a slave and have the audocity to tip me a sorry ass dollar or two??
What the HELL am I going to do with that? Gum isnt even a dollar anymore so what bill or rent am I going to pay that with?

Let me explain this to you. As a server/bartender in GA I make a "whooping" 2.13 an hour. THATS IT!
That 2.13 doesnt even touch my is used towards the taxes I have to pay to the gov't.
When I receive my "check" it says THIS IS NOT A CHECK meaning its a sorry ass paystub.
All the money I make comes from YOU!
Now Im not expecting your broke ass to pay a bill for me...just tip accordingly.

T.I.P.S. means To Ensure Proper Service and if thats what you receive..good service...I am expecting 18-20% of your bill.
For and your girls come in and spend 50 much do you leave ? A) $2 B)$5 C) $10

If you said anything other than 10 keep your ass at home...or hit a place with a drive thru..SERIOUSLY.

Also, please keep your nasty attitude at home, stop expecting everything for free, have common sense, dont sit at my table longer than neccessary (eat and go), stop the water and lemon shit, be polite, get off that sorry ass phone when talkin to me and know your budget.

Please tell a friend.
Tell your "sistas" too b/c I CAN'T stand their asses personally
