Remember Lil Man-Man who wore his Daddy’s Freaknik shirt to school, well the AJC featured Freaknik today in it’s “Whatever Happened To“ column and I just had to revisit the topic. Freaknik disappeared because it was no longer the college picnic that it started as. I know I’m old….but I remember Freaknik as a joyous gathering of classmates who couldn’t (or didn’t want to) go home for spring break. Everyone just chilled and brought a bottle.
Each year it got bigger and bigger as more out of town students joined in. The “outsiders” turned the hometown event into a car show which eventually morphed into some kind of crazy “Freakfest” where there were strippers in vans and ghetto hoochies in Toyota’s all taking it off for whoever asked.
If you don’t remember, I have video taped proof of the nonsense…
Kanye West let out his feelings about life, love and the passing of his mother on his blog the other day. He says…
I don’t do anything I don’t love anymore… I loved the flashing lights vid so it didn’t matter 2 me if someone one else didn’t. While people chase money I pursue happiness. So many people talk about there investments or how much money they have but there’s so many rich people who spend a lot of that trying 2 buy a piece of happiness. If there’s anything my mom taught me is to enjoy life. I just recorded my first verse in the last 6 months 2 days ago at Bape’s Studio in Japan. It felt good and I was inspired. I absolutely lost my mind (in a good way) on the new Glow in the Dark tour. The constant hours of creating helped me 2 keep from loosing my mind in a bad way. Chris Milk told me tragedy can produce great art and this is definitely true. I am a total mad man now, up till 3 am every night, trying 2 fight pain, board-um, and uncertainty with creativity. All that said, life is good….. good as finding the perfect fabric for a simple one button casual blazer with matching pants.(Source)
I was listening to my favorite Mack, Tariq Nasheed today and he played a clip from this video. Supposedly Buffy the Body and Gucci Mane are a couple (of country azzes) and are marketing their new reality show or sumthin….anyway I’m from the “A” and can’t understand a GOT-Dayum word of this nonsense, so please….PLEASE don’t think that this is representative of Atlanta. I need a translator….STAT! Could somebody please send me a transcript…ASAP! … and what restaurant was that where Gucci Mane ate with his shirt off….I knew that there were some country folks down hurr…but even my country azz is apalled!!
One last question…where in the “A” do they give Ma-THAW-gess??? Answers….I need answers!!!
Check out this newly released photo of Solonge Knowles. I believe it was taken for promotional purposes for her next CD. I didn’t get the memo, but GOLD must be in this season! I peeped R. Kelly’s spray painted golden locks over at Fresh’s house earlier today, but couldn’t muster up enough energy to post it. Solange’s golden stare must have given me the mystical powers to cut, paste and press send. She’s magic!
I swear that something ain’t right about this pic…but I just can’t put my finger on it. What do you guys think?? Hot or Not?
Check out these flix of Ne-yo’s video shoot for “Closer.” Ne-Yo looks like he’s channeling the spirit of Michael Jackson and he finally takes charge of his receding hairline and let’s it all hang out! You go boy! Look’s like a very well done video….can’t wait to see it!
Way more Ne-yo Fabulous-ness and a sneak peek of the song after the jump!
Alexyss is apparently on Spring Break too this week…so I dug into the archives and pulled out this one. Ms. Tylor adresses old men who are spreading AIDs and HIV by boning everything in sight to try to get back their youth. I always heard that old men gave you worms so I personally won’t touch one…unless he looks like Denzel, with his sexie azz swag! But I digress!
Alexyss is crazy as hell…and I can’t stop laughing at the thought of some “big ole man d*ck”! I’ll never make it that far. The gray hair trumps the peen!
Don’t forget to check out the final portion of the video after the jump…
