Welcome to "No Passes," a new column on AllHipHop.com.
The purpose of the column is to simply address some of the
improprieties, inexcusable acts and general f**k ups of our otherwise
grandiose, innovative and otherwise trailblazing community. The column
will be in a number of voices, from AllHipHop Staff to you the writer.
So, drop us an email at NoPasses@gmail.com if you have something you
feel deserves calling out. No hate, all tough love and fun. Pause.
Twitter Beef: RAPPERS STOP IT!
By Chuck Jigsaw Creekmur
In the not-so-distant past, I wrote a story called Twitter Will End Your Music Career and it was a winner. To this day, the story gets re-tweeted all over the internet. I was just about to write a sequel to it that tied into another piece called Hate Is The New Love when a TWITTER WAR BROKE OUT between Fabolous and Soulja Boy. I was watching the tweet and seeing what people were saying. Most were just disgusted and others just felt it was a pure play for press. One thing is for sure, when DJ Clue had to mediate peace between the two men, I was done. Both Fab and SB have their place in the music game, but this is beneath them and others. This was treated like it was about to be Biggie and Pac all over again. Really? All the wolf tickets being sold was ridiculous. There is a saying that with power comes responsibility. Be nice to see artist harness and utilize theirs in more beneficial ways that excites fans, not sickens them. PS: The media didnt have anything to do with this outbreak.
and hit me at @chuckcreekmur and tell me what you think about it. No Twitter beefin' - I promise. Ameriie Goes Blonde
By Mike Winslow, AHH News Reporter
Amerie or Ameriie is a tremendously talented singer. Fashionista not so
much. She was granted a pass when she added that useless i in her
name, but this is going too far. Ive always wanted to go platinum
blonde, and I figured Id finally just do it, Ameriie told Rap-Up.com
Never go blonde again and please put out some music.
Still pretty, but...come on!Jay-Z And Willow: NO PASSES!
Awwww, Jay! I gotta get at you over this Willow Smith signing! How are you going to sign the artist that will eventually destroy your own protégée Rihanna? LMAO!!!! I have to say that this is a good one! But, there is no hate, Willow is new and Rihanna has crossed the burning sands into freakin Illuminati rumors. In all seriousness, Willow looks and sounds like a lil Rihanna and that just means shes going to be a huge star. But she has the same stylist as Big Ri Ri! HA! The Illuminati rumors wont set in for another decade! Here is her new song Whip My Hair.
By the way...if you are over the age of 15 and hating on Willow, you need to get back on the short bus and get checked out. Here is the news story with comments by Jay-Z and Poppa Will Smith.
