The show started off with a tribute to Cypress Hill who are still performing under another group name so as to grow with the music and not be suspended so to speak on the 80's. Fat Joe started the tribute with his rendition of "The real one" and then Jim Jones came out performing "I ain't going out like that" or something of that nature (I really don't remember this song...) Now Gym Class Heroes are coming out.. oh ish.. that's my jam! Insane in the Membrane was my hook! And I like how the lead singer had that same nasely tone like B. Real... me likey! Now Cypress is taking the stage and what are they going to perform... awwww snap!! "How I could just kill a man" Oh that whole song was the lick back in the day! Awww suki.. now they are playing "So you want to be a Rap Superstar" Oh my that is hitting hard.. my speakers are about to buss... me likey!!
Next up De La Soul.. now these are my peeps.. yup I was a hippie hip hopper! This album right chur? Maan.. I used to play it till my tape popped! For real though.. this whole album was the theme to my life back in the day. Is that Estelle performing "It's Saturday".. hmm nice.. next! Qtip!!! Whew.. now that's more like it... I'm mad at that fisherman/hunting/hot as hell hat he got on his head.. but I digress... Mos Def and Flavoooor Flaaav! They are performing.. oh wait.. is that Chuck Deezy? Aww now I got to take a break and get my cabbage patch on... okay now that's out of my system - Cee Lo is performing "Pot Holes in my Lawn" classic banger... Okay just kill me now... is that ERIC AND PARISH MAKING DOLLARS?? Be still my beating heart would ya? Now we got Michael Rappaport talking about he named his son Maseo.. ooh I'm mad at him for that one! De La is finally performing "Me, Myself and I" no need to explain this one.. I wonder when they gonna sing "Buddy".. ooh spoke too soon!
Next up Rick the Ruler.. MC Rickey D.. or otherwise known as Slick Rick.. now this is some classic ish if you ask me. He held the art of storytelling down to a science. Today's rappers couldn't compete with his gift to tell a story and have it resonate in your mind as if you had actually been there. I'm mad Tracy Morgan is talking about Dave the Dopefiend like he's a real person.. LOL - ooh I just want to fight him sometimes.. but back to the show... I'm so glad to see Mc Lyte come out and support her boy.. this was my jam "So relax ya mind and folks unwind.. " Awww Jimmy Jam.. is that Busta Bus with an eye patch?? LOL! Classic! "Then she turned around like she was Tony the tiger.." That's another classic banger for me. Why in the free press hell is Vinnie from Naughty by Nature on stage.. man just wait your turn dawg! Ghostface and Biz Markie are now performing La Di Da Di.. no need to embellish here. Is that Fabulous? Mkay.. lack luster performance of "Hey young world".. not impressed. Wow Eve looks ghostly.. or ghastly - whichever she looks about 10 shades lighter in the face than her dayum neck.. I'm going to need her to get a new makeup person fa sho!
Next up Too Shizzle my nizzle:
Now as most of you know I reside in Oakland, CA - East O to be exact - the home of Too Short where before he ever made it big was selling tapes out the back of his cadillac for profit. He's a legend in these parts and should be rightfully recognized. First up to perform.. Kid Rock (where is my pic of Ice Cube saying eh? when you need it) and he's doing my old school joint "Life is Too Short" How in da hell they get Kid Rock?? And why is he on my tv screen rapping Too Short lyrics? I just want to strangle him with that satin A's jacket! Lawd.. just take me now!! Lil John and his crunk juice are getting booties shaking with "Shake that monkey" Woo saw.. wait... is that Bun B??!!! Oh thank you rap gods... you have answered my prayers! He's performing "Blow the Whistle" Why is Short sitting there looking hella mad like he'd rather be pimp slapping a bish or something? I'm hella mad that Kid Rock attributed Too Short to his ability to perform.. YOU.NEED.MORE.LESSONS. Now it's Short's turn to perform... and WHAT? Scarface?? Oooh me likey!! "The Ghetto" is an all around jam.. no matter what ghetto you from.. even if you've never been to the ghetto.. cause I try to stay out the ghetto.. LOL - okay so I just ran with that one! Too Short's freestyling... okie dokie just as long as you end the song with BIATCH! LOL!
