Game 7

As I write this The Heat are trying to handle the Pistons. Let's hope I don't have to edit this post later.

Anyhoo, I have some random thoughts and maybe I can get to the 'rappers who sing' list. (This list thing is starting to feel like I am biting ego trip, but what are you gonna do?)

BTW, ego trip was without the doubt the best mag of the last 10 years. Not as trendy as the Fader and more editorially reliable than the Source, more authentic than Vibe. If I had the dough i would bring it back. Peace to the Chairman Mao and the rest of the crew.

Random thoughts:

  • How come Kanye didn't give Kweli some heat like Common got?
  • Seems like Kweli never got the props for delivering Kanye to the headwrap/backpack audience
  • The Damon Dash/Jay Z divorce is appearing even more bizarre. It seems like all that Dame has is Beanie Siegel and Ol Dirty. A convict and a corpse - although in Hip-Hop that can be an asset in a macabre sort of way. The State Property click that Beans ran has remained loyal to Jay. Odd, to say the least.
  • Now that Jay is not an artist I keep hearing Memphis Bleek saying how happy he is. And even implying that Jay's lack of administrative help is the reason for his lackluster (for Roc-A-Fella) sales performance. I wonder what is gonna be the excuse when/if this one bricks. And how long will the loyalty last to Jay when/if he is unale to share his magic touch.

Gotta watch the last 1:26 of this game. stupid list tommorow
