As I briskly strolled around town today, running errands, also while visiting a school, I noticed about three children (more so adolescents) dressed in baggy jeans, and sporting a Wiz Khalifa t-shirt.  Attached are stories of the three encounters.

Of the first escapade from my travels at an anonymous location, I saw a child, around 14 in age, of Hispanic descent, with a mischievous look on his face, his smile flouted his braces, his t-shirt read “Wiz Khalifa Black and Yellow” I whispered mindlessly across to him, “that man has no talent”, seeing as I had work to accomplish, I continued my travels, without looking back, or even suggesting a response from him.

Secondly, the oddest of the trio of encounters, I noticed someone with a t-shirt that said “FREE WEEZY” on it.  Now, while I do appreciate the rapid fire word-play in which Lil Wayne subconsciously blabbers out in his opening verses of “Tha Carter IV” debut single, I still believe him to be nothing but a drug enhaling auto-tuned rapper, synonymous for, I do not like him.  I asked the teenager with the shirt “Excuse me, but, is there something that Lil Wayne needs to be freed from other than the enigma of how to get better at rapping?”

The child blankly stared at me and spoke, “Yo that homie is in jail!”  Correct me if I am wrong, my viewers, but was Dwayne Carter not freed from prison about a month or two ago?

Finally, I had my final encroachment, this time, with a Caucasian teen, of whom I did not stereotype, wearing a Wiz Khalifa T-Shirt that said “Rolling Papers” on it… Before I lectured about the history of rap, I wondered what kind of t-shirts are they allowing into our public school systems these days? Anyways, I gave the child a piece of my mind, saying Wiz had little talent at all, and he said “I know I saw that on a blog called ‘Jacob’s Sports” No, he did not actually say that, he just told me I was full of crap, and I was stupid.

After all this oddity, I conjectured this day needs to be called “Wear No Talent Rapper’s Apparel”, I did not see any Slim Shady clothing on…. Since he is a beast.

Now, as soon as this post is published to the internt, and goes viral…. I will probably have about seven comments proclaiming “Taylor Gang is the best” or “Yo, you bout as ignorant as Limbaugh” etc…. Honestly though, get sober, and go listen to Wiz Khalifa, the guy is imbued with as much rap talent as Goldilocks bowl was imbued with pooridge after the three personificated bears raided her house.

First of all, many of my viewers may recall a time when music videos had meaning behind them… Well certainly that time is not now, as Wiz Khalifa’s latest gig, On My Level, shows him taking shots with girls, and smoking the whole video…. How can you people like this junk?  Go watch I Need A Doctor’s music video… And then watch anything Wiz created, and maybe, just maybe, you will finally take off your Taylor Gang glasses, and see the world for how it is.

Two major rap albums are coming out this March, the eighth Lupe Fiasco’s Lasers debuts, with the trailing singles of “The Show Goes On” and “Words I Never Said”, outside of Eminem, I have never seen such strong lyricism in a song!  This will be a telling point for rap, whether people still appreciate real rap or not.  Albeit, the 28th is a whole different story, out comes “Rolling Papers” now I already have proclaimed the ridiculousness of Wiz Khalifa, but if this album sits atop the charts that week, I will assume that everyone has lost all self-respect for themselves…. His music is trash, its that simple!

Seeing as only one simile has been provided to you, I take this time to bring forth one more!  Wiz Khalifa is more overrated then North Carolina was in the AP Poll after being five hundred, last year!  Also, if Khalifa deserves a Grammy Award, then the the duke and the dauphin in Huckleberry Finn deserve a Noble Peace Prize… For you illiterate Wiz fans, the duke and the dauphin were criminals, likewise, that if-then statement is synonymous for “Khalifa does not deserve any form of an award”!

On a concluding note, to try and muscle up more views, I will take a page out of Wiz’s book, and randomly shout out two colors!

RED AND SILVER, red and silver, yeah, you know what it is, red and silver, red and silver, its the theme colors to Jacob’s Sports, yeah that’s not stunting! RED AND SILVER! RED AND SILVER! YEAHHH!

Dear Wiz Khalifa,

Go to Kansas, be swept up by a twister, head to the land of Oz, get on your knees, and plead the Wizard to work a miracle…. And give you some rapid-fire wordplay, or at least a tidbit of rap talent! It’s a long shot, but you did make it big, so we know anything can happen!

With little to no respect,

Rap fan.

Music Review: I Need A Doctor

Currently atop the iTunes chart, is a song produced by Alex Da Kid and Dr. Dre, its Dre’s first single off Detox, featuring Eminem and Skylar Grey.  For those of you who have not heard it, I can probably put the whole thing into a nutshell.

First off, I’d like to give props to Skylar Grey, who has sounded brilliant once again, she’s the girl who sang this chorus, along with Diddy’s I’m Coming Home.  She deserves a Grammy sometime, because her voice is more mellifluous than everyone’s.  They are just pale in comparison.

What struck me as odd, is Eminem got two verse, and Dre only got one.  Eminem raps about how his mentor, Dr. Dre, really needs to wake up and put out some music.  He also thanks him numerous times “you picked me up, breathed new life in me” and “I don’t think you realize what you mean to me, not the slightest clue”, all in all, Eminem hit another high note, which is all he’s hit since the release of Recovery.

When will Detox drop? Eminem raps about how Dre needs to step it up, and that’s just about what he does in his closing verse, which I didn’t appreciate at first.  Dr. Dre will forever be a legend, but at the very end he says “one more CD, and then I am packing up my bags.” I hope that is just a figure of speech.

Dr. Dre said that Detox will drop on 4/20, albeit his associate denied all talks of that, I guess we’ll have to wait and see.  I give this song a 9/10, seeing as it was indeed amazing, but Dre’s verse just wasn’t “great” for me.
