Gilles' TOP 3 gripes about being a rapper.




I promise, I really really really Reeeeeeeeeeeeeally LOVE being a rapper. But dammit, y'all startin' to piss me the hell off. How so, you ask? See below.

1. EVERYBODY's doing it. I can't even tell y'all I rap without getting the "oh, ok...you too?" b/c your mother's brother's grandmother (in that order) watched one-too-many episodes of 106 & Park and now, also aspires to rock the proverbial "mic". The difference b/w me and them is that I DON'T suck donkey balls...Subtle, but, a difference nonetheless.

2. You guys hear that I'm a rapping lawyer and somehow, think that means I rap about the law...uh, no. That sh*t ain't never been cool. Remember, I DON'T suck donkey balls.

3. STOP asking me to rap on the spot! Did you start spilling sh*t on the floor when you found out that dude was a janitor??? No. Did you start asking for routes to work when you heard that chick drove a Marta bus??? No. Did you ask about that rash you got during Spring Break when you were talking to those Med students??? MAYBE. But, it was scary and you thought that you were gonna die...Ok, I understand that one.

All and all, nobody's perfect. I forgive y'all. :*D

Season's Skeetings!

'Tis the season indeed. Looks like, for the right price, ANYBODY can "feel" the holiday spirit. ;)


How about, "Toys for TITS"...I can do this alllllllllllll day, haha.

Cookin' with Coolio

Cookin' with Coolio, the Ghetto Gourmet
Fork Steak & Ghetallian Garlic Bread

Where in theeee heck have I been that almost an entire season of "Cookin' with Coolio" has been on and I haven't heard about it?! Coolio keeps it way real showing you how to take hot sauce and a dime bag of season salt to make a gor-may meal. Other episodes include: soul rolls, tricked out westside tilapia, and fall off the bone chicken. A gangster's paradise, indeed.

Who's the black George Michael???

Yep, you guessed it: The Weeknd.



But still, THIS > THAT.

Goon-topic #1: "If Belly were made today, who would be the cast?" - Justin Paul (formerly, Jay West)

T.I....

As Tommy "Buns" Bundy.

Yasiin Bey (formerly, Mos Def)...

as Sincere.

Nicki Minaj...

as Kisha.

Idris Elba...

as Lennox.

50 Cent...

as Knowledge.

Tyler the Creator...

as Shameek.

Diggy Simmons...

as Shorty.

Lawrence Fishburne...

as Rev Saviour.

Kreayshawn...

as Kionna.

Rick Ross...

as Rico.

Oh yeah, and Guy Ritchie would write and direct it.

Troy Davis Art Exhibit.

In the wake of just the latest tragedy within our justice system, some good folks over in the Castleberry Hill area of Atlanta decided to plan an event...creatives in the neighborhood contributed with various pieces.

Below are a few flicks from the ol' iPhone.

I OFFICIALLY FOX w/ THIS.

Machine Gun Kels - Wild Boy

Not 'cause the song is EXTRA jammin'.
Not 'cause Juaquin Flocka has 16 prolific bars.
Not even 'cause Mr. Flocka bottles a middle-aged white man for asking him too many questions (though that IS an added bonus).

But, peep the 1:51 mark: It's suuuuuuuper illll that Layzie Bone is in this video. That says a lot about young Kels' movement in Cleveland. The O.G.'s #salute and who can be mad at that?

Oh yeah, Kat Williams is from Cincinatti too. Ohio is showing love all through this thang.
