Slang Rap Democracy

Bringing you all the freshness fit to link.

Swine Flu Rap

“J-A-Y, I flow sick,” said, Jay-Z on “Money, Cash Hoes.” You know, that song that also features Crackman Darkman X who is now calling Jay Kanye “heartless” (see below).

Hov probably didn’t have Jerome Clark’s awkward (let me be nice) attempt at flowing about swine flu prevention in mind when he said the aforementioned line (or when he said he was “the only MC with the flu” on “Brooklyn’s Finest”). Someone get Clark, the medical director of the Long Island Railroad, a deal with Purell. [Spotted at NY Mag]

E! True Hollywood Story: Rapper Wives

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Was watching the E! True Hollywood Story on Rapper Wives. Needless to say it wasn’t the best of looks for the rapping hubbies.

Mos Def’s ex-stripper wifey, Alana Wyatt, filed for divorce a few months after they got married in 2005, but he hasn’t signed the papers—so they’re still married. DMX is…pretty much in a bad spot (to put it nicely). And the late, great Big Pun, according to his widow Liza Rios and damning video, was unfortunately a wife beater. [sigh]

The only rappers that came out unscathed were Uncle Luke and neglected white rapper Paul Wall (he just dropped an album, ya know). Guess Jay-Z and Beyoncé weren’t available. Shout out to former spouses KRS-One and Ms. Melody too.

Can a rapper have a healthy marriage in the Hip-Hop game? Surely; if he or she wants to. But that applies to any marriage, rapper or not. Respect those vows.

I asked her to leave the chain at home.
