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.

Forget America; only in hip hop can a glorified hypeman leapfrog to headliner in a few short years. Such is the case for Jim Jones.

(Koch)—the Harlemite’s become, if not a household name, certainly a brand unto himself…

The good folks at Vibe.com asked me to review Jim Jones’ new Pray IV Reign album. [via Vibe.com]
