Are we bias? Are we just putting this up because we support the
artist known as Rich P? Are we writing this because we have been telling you for
the past three years this kid is just getting better with time? Are we writing
this just because we know him? Perhaps. Do you really care as to why though? Do
you not want to see what we are making all the fuss about? Lets be completely
clear... The original version of "New Slaves" was eehhhhh from an entertainment
point of view. Now if we are talking about a record that finally talks about
something, we must give it a 9.5 on content alone. For Kanye West to
deliver such a prolific, controversial record in this fickle world we call 2013
is a move only made by leaders. For Rich P to follow up with his own
version is so much more daring. Why? He is not Kanye West. His baby mama
is not Kim Kardashian. He did not get a lambo for his birthday. Jay-Z did not
scold him by recording a song called D.O.A.. Rich P does not nearly have
the fan base of Kanye West, but he has the attitude, persona, delivery, vocals,
bars, talent, and EGO
to pull it off. Rich P is rapping from a place of where he is right now.
No embellished stories of wild orgies in Cannes, France like we hear some
unsigned talent rap about. This is uniquely about what he has personally
witnessed and survived and admitting how he must not get caught up in the hype.
Kanye West amazing career has afforded him to witness things that he
himself didnt even know he would while he was writing Jesus Walks many years
ago. Well you be the judge. Music is the one place you can judge without being
called a hater. Well that was until twitter and instagram was
Now as many know the events of this past week included Lil Wayne almost buying the farm.
Lil Wayne's visitor's list at Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. is quite the star-studded lineup! The Young Money boss, who was hospitalized last week following a series of seizures, has been surrounded by friends and family since he was first re-admitted on Wednesday, March 13 -- including bold-faced names like Nicki Minaj, Drake and Birdman.
Its great that Lil Wayne has support. However, the question of his health along with other rappers namely Rick Ross have come victim not to the guns and shells but to the liquor and chicken.
Conflicting reports about Lil Wayne's health condition have been circulating ever since the rapper was rushed to the hospital to be treated for severe seizures on Tuesday, March 12. He was released on Wednesday, but quickly readmitted after his bodyguards found him unconscious on the floor several hours later.
What would Lil Wayne be representing? What legacy, other than music will Lil Wayne leave behind? The man has hits. The man has education attending University of Houston and University of Phoenix. It is also overlooked that his secondary school was in fact a magnet school. Magnet schools are reserved for accelerated students. The man is no dumb-ass. At least not when it comes to academics. His life choices definitely has some meaning behind it and hopefully the coming days will allow him to address whatever issues he is working out. Maybe this is isolated, a case of a bad batch. If you drink hard you know the feeling. Out cold, wake up the next day, headache, and the shits that come out like golf balls.
On Friday, TMZ originally reported that the rapper's health was in very bad shape, saying that he was being read his last rites. But a source close to the "Lollipop" rapper told Us that those reports have been wildly exaggerated.
"He drank too much sizzurp to get a better high," the source explained to Us. "He needs rehab but he's not close to death or anything. He's fine and just coming down off the high."
Sizzurp is a highly addictive, recreational drug that involves prescription-strength cough syrup, sugary sodas and hard candies, typically sipped out of Styrofoam cups.
If there is news out there believe the scoop will be here.
