I Am NOT Hip-Hop |

Burger status.

Russell Simmons’ first Hip-Hop website venture lasted as long as the latest Internet MCs career, but its I Am Hip-Hop/I Am Not Hip-Hop ad campaign was official gristle. Rest In Peace

If you have time wade through (remarkably still up) for insight, amidst a LOT of vitriol, into the implosion of Urban websites in the early aughts. Mostly due to sites spending money like there was no tomorrow without any idea how they were actually going to turn a profit. Y’know, like the US economy.

Also, Dame Dash seems to always stay in the picture.

Bill O’Reilly’s Hip-Hop Feuds

Bill O’Reilly is a donkey. That said, just about anyone going on The O’Reilly Factor is facing a losing battle. Mediaite looked back at eight of O’Reilly’s Hip-Hop targets from the past decade including Snoop Dogg and Ludacris.

The winners, as far as audacity, are by far Dame “You’re Not an Objective Mediator” Dash (who holds his own for the most part) and Cam’Ron “You mad?!?!” Giles (who brings all new levels of obnoxious comedy). Also, Salome Thomas-El lost me when he said “conversating,” which isn’t a word I’ve seen in any dictionary. Just saying.

Hip-Hop is very influential, even to the detriment of highly impressionable kids. But even the most unrighteous Hip-Hop doesn’t have anything on sound parenting. Below, Nas’ “Sly Fox” clip.
