Pardon my niggorance on this one. But I swear by Erykah Badu and own every Roots album, so I often end up rubbing elbows with the backpack crowd. The thing is, I don't have dreads, but do wear sneakers and lotion, so whenever I go see Mos Def perform, them people look at me like, "what the f*ck is this guy doing here?"
One thing I can't stand about Coffee Shop chicks is how elitist they are. I mean, some of them front on Jay-Z being lyrical just cause he never rhymed about shae butter. Gimme a break! I've been in many conversations where Coffee reps tried to sell me on some new ashy act thinking I was down. Raheem Devaughn has to be the best example. I did like that "You" song. It was dope! But besides that, I don't get it. After I complained about dude being nothing special, one chick even confessed something like, "he ain't that good, but until D'Angelo stops looking like ODB, he's a good replacement." WTF?
I didn't like what he did on Beanie Sigel's album, he ruined Talib Kweli's "Country Cousins" and though I appreciated the content on "Woman," it just doesn't cut it. So newsflash, assholes! Dilated Peoples is not good, Jurrasic 5 sounds like a barbershop quartet, Goapele is boring (she's bad though) and the tooth fairy isn't real. Speak on it!
