What was the worst thing about Hip-Hop in 2011? All of the lame subliminal disses. Without a doubt! For an industry of full of hard, mean, shoot your body up rappers we had a ton of lame subliminal diss tracks. Even Common jumped on the bandwagon towards the end of the year. If you’re going to diss someone, diss them! Say their name on the track. Jump in the ring, don’t dance around it. Hit ‘em with that bada boom boii. You’re killin’ me.
Damn that wasn’t weird, right? One day I wake up to a J. Clone diss by Canibus. Next day I wake up to an awkward apology video by the same guy. It’s been a few days since, and I’m still scratching my head. ‘Bus how are you going to diss someone for liking you, and why would you diss someone only to apologize a day later. Do you ever think about what you’re doing? Also, please don’t script your apology videos. What was that? Uh uh, don’t answer. You’re killin’ me.
First of all, R.I.P. Heavy D. I guess the title is somewhat unfair, let me explain though. I hate it when people talk horrible about a person when they are alive, but completely flip the script when they die. They’re dead, you can’t hurt them anymore. You made their life miserable, now they’re dead, and you praise their accomplishments? Heavy D’s people weren’t bad, but the passing of Heavy D sparked the thought. The fans who are killin’ me are mostly Michael Jackson, and Amy Winehouse “fans”.
The way people are celebrating Conrad Murray’s verdict makes it seem like Conrad Murray broke into Michael Jackson’s home and shot him to death. Then he stabbed him 19 times, took his heart out, took a bite, then threw it in the pool. All this in front of Blanket. No. Conrad Murray is actually a good guy. He was just caught up in an unfortunate situation. Calm down people. Nothing to celebrate here. Yo LaToya, justice was served here? Not really. You’re killin’ me.
Wow, 106 & Park. I’m not talking about Wild Out Wednesday either. I’m talking about wow 106 & Park, you’ve banned Webbie from your show, and you feel like we should all know. You’re killin’ me. But not knowing why Webbie got banned is probably what made me write this. My nosy self can’t help but to wonder what Webbie did. Did he sexually harass Rocsi, was he high, did he fight Blind Furry? I don’t know. It’s killing me though.
Last time I checked freestyling meant rapping straight off the dome, not straight off the iPhone, or rapping verses from upcoming songs and calling them freestyles. You’re killin’ me. It also kills me when rappers remix a song and call it a freestyle. Out of all the things that are changing in Hip-Hop, this is what kills me the most.
Maybe it’s the media’s fault for asking freestyle challenged rappers to freestyle on every interview they do. Not every rapper is Canibus or KRS-One; so it’s unfair for us to ask them for freestyles on every interview. This epidemic was bound to happen. Some rappers can barely write raps, nevertheless freestyle on the spot. Under pressure who wouldn’t pull out the iPhone?
Due to the success of the last YKM: Upcoming Rappers, I’ve decided to revisit the subject and drop some more knowledge. Plus some of you are still killin’ me, so I feel obligated to reopen this topic. I’m getting tired of greedy rappers with cheap photography, horrible audio quality, lack of individuality, no breath control, and no YouTube accounts. This YKM is the closest you’ll get to a guideline about getting up out the sidelines. J. Cole wannabes pay attention.
Thank you Mayweather! Thanks for “rapping” or else I wouldn’t be able to YKM your cheating ass. Although you make a weak rapper, some fools would still consider you a rapper. So you’re legally YKM eligible. Your rap skills are not the topic at hand though. What’s killin’ me is what went down Saturday night during your fight with Victor Ortiz. That’s not a knockout by the greatest boxer alive, that’s a cheap shot by the dirtiest fighter alive.
Congratulations Soulja Boy! You’re the first person to ever get two YKM’s. Really though? How is that possible? Do you try to screw up on purpose? The one time you try to deliver a concrete message in your music, it turns out horrible. You said, “F**k the FBI and the army troops fighting for what? Be your own man”. You’re killin’ me. The apology you later released didn’t help the situation either. For the second time, Soulja Boy you’re killin’ me.
