Video: Russell & Company on Oprah

It took a nappy headed ho comment from an old racist white guy, but Oprah finally let hip-hop stick up for itself on her show.

Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

As we speak, Russell and the rest of the Hip-Hop Illuminati are holed up in a room talking about how their going to pacify corporate sponsors fix hip-hop. More on that shortly.

UPDATE: The press conference has been indefinitely postponed because they’re still selling us talking it out. I don’t know why they would ever think that something involving Russell and talking would take any less than 5 hours.

    That Korean kid was fucking messed up. Freaking coward, suicide is the cowards way out. Should of let him rot in jail or gave him the electric chair.

    I don’t care about his mental issues or psychological problems, he should of been kept in a cage, locked in his room and fed rice on a dog bowl or starve him.

    People like him in this world shouldn’t exist.

    When I heard about that Asian shooting up VTech…..I just shook my head..

    Because I remember all the Whitebois I used to pick on throughout Middle School and High School (never went to college, because I would of probably bullied them there)

    Some people just take bullying a little too serious…The Bullies bully you to make you tougher…They aint trying to hurt, they’re trying to turn you into a man..

    Anyway from this point on…I’m going to stop bullying people…Some people got issues in their damn head and react like this….They take a joke too serious…

    hootie how the fuck can a stringy piece of piss like you bully anyone? You’d have got slapped up real quick if you went to my school.

    It’s on bxc…Erep check mail…Message to all who read never be afraid to ask for help or just ask a question in general….Watched this lady today damn near kill herself over what amounts to nothing but pride…senseless…especially seeing as how were on the internet what’s the worst that could happen a total stranger TYPES no…and if that’s the case Fcuk’em…*Steps off poduim…Leaves conference room*

  6. hoodtalk.org Says:

    Eng….I am 6’4 200 pounds…..I can pretty much bully anyone I want….and anyone on here…

    I’m not proud about Bullying people…because Now I see what it does to people and the way they react…

    But this Korean kid was troubled, disturbed, angry at the world, he was enraged at nothing in particular….Really sick and twisted and demented kid…

    Me being from the Bully perspective…I look at it like this….THE BULLY picks on a kid…but he never in his mind thinks that the kid is going to react like this in a crazy insane maniac manner..

    People shouldn’t have to pay for the messed up things in crazy persons mind…

    In conclusion, I regret picking on kids all through middle school and high school…

  7. hoodtalk.org Says:

    People that are Crazy, Insane, Loner, Anti-Social, Weirdos should be kept away from Normal People in Society…..Seriously….

    I heard this Korean kid rarely spoke, didn’t socialize with roomates, and kept to himself…Had no friends and his family didn’t visit him…(No subliminal itended towards Nation)

    I still think this Gook’s Parents should be held responsible for this action. Law Suits will be brought up. His parent’s dry cleaning days are over.

    Why in the H*ll didnt oprah have who iz the main culprit of rap lyrics?….If rap artist knew they could make more money rapping all clean lyrics then quite naturally they would. With that said who do you think pays the big bucks for for the hardcore joints? The industry! Instead of shunning Luda and ice cube why dont oprah hold a real Town Meeting with the Masta oops I mean record honchos? Hell if I was told that i would be able to feed my kids nice and the only few alternatives was to get down with the get down then sh*t I would kicks some Make it Rain sh*t too!…It aint what you listen too its how you listen to it, and if you dont get down with the explizit lyrics than buy yo A** the clean version Thats all!…Rappers dont disrespect they peeps like that its a Got D*mn Business Folks!!!!!……The attacks on Lyrical Artist Is not Logical or Wise and when Rev Al wants some donation he betta think about that crazy hypocritical talk and take a walk!

    ^^ It was dissapointing deftinely compared to `GRDOT album… I didn’t like many of the beats 50 chose for the album, so I skipped through plenty of songs..I really picky when it comes to beats…. He did make some goods songs that entertained me, so I can’t really complain too much….

    Hopefully he comes better with his next two albums…

    Hmm Oprah is corny. This whole IMUS thing is stupid. IMUS made a stupid ass comment. He’s not racist and if Al didn’t catch it no one would of cared. Its not like any of those girls listen to the IMUS show…. Dude got a bum deal. Everyone seems not to care of all the good he’s done. Yeah he doesnt need to work ever he has more money then hmm most. but still he got fucked over bad with making a stupid ass comment on the cuff while being his typical harsh self. Too many other people say shit and get a pass but god fucking forbid if some old white dude does LOL oh well

    anyways.

  29. Video: HipHop In De Verdediging Bij Oprah « WildStyle Says:

    […] Dat Oprah Winfrey geen fan van hiphop is was al bekend dor het debacle rond Ludacris. Afgelopen weken is er in de VS een flinke rel ontstaan rond radiohost Don Imus die een dames basketball-team “nappy heade ho’s” noemde. Hij kreeg het verwijt een seksist en een racist te zijn maar hij verdedigde zich door hiphop de schuld te geven, rappers zeggen immers wel ergere dingen dan hij was zijn argument. Dit alles was de aanleiding voor een discussie bij Oprah maar deze keer gaf zij wel een aantal prominenten uit de hiphop-wereld de kans zich te verdedigen. De hele show is hier te zien. […]

    Those nappy headed hoes need to stop fronting cuz they got a chance to be on oprah…they know if nelly or even biz markie for that matter came up to them in a club and said “you got what i need” theyd drop it liek its hot and head to the telly.

  31. Suave Says:

    what a biatch….. people in foreign countries think ho is a nice word. wow how stupid are oprah? People talk english and knows streetlingo.
    Americans think foreigners are like Borat

  32. Daim D Says:

    WHY IS OPRAH SUCH A RUDE BITCH. When it Came TO letting the 10 some odd women panalist speak {which no one knows} she didn’t INTERUPT. tALK ABOUT RESPECT, SHE DOESN’T GIVE ANY, SO HOW DOES SHE EXPECT TO RECIEVE IT. Instead criticizing hip-hop and talking about what they (Oprah and friends) don’t want, they should be addressing what they do want. How are educated adults so stupid when it comes to finding solutions?

  34. Darth Cipher Says:

    i think i’ve said this a thousand times when it came to video vixens
    dont blame men for the women acting like hoes, blame the fucking women
    stop attacking men cause women spread they damn legs, and not only that
    if a woman wants to spread her god damn legs, that her own fucking choice, who are they as women to say these group of women give them a bad image?
    no one can give you a bad image, you give yourself a bad image, so to let what these women do become your portrait is only fucking yourself over.
    Oprah is the most biased bitch on television, and i use the word bitch in the most demiening way, cause hse has no respect for any male white or black who’s on her show, as a journalist you are to be objective, and as someone aspiring to become a journalist, i have no respect for her craft, she sickens me to the bone marrow, and i hope one day someone will have the balls to put her shit on fucking blast
    bitch needs to show N prove all the bullshit she promotes… when will she gets married huh? word is bon

  36. $***M-ROC***$ Says:

    oprah? just one question, boo…

    why the fuck do you invite people on your show to hear them speak, only to TALK OVER THEM EVERY CHANCE YOU GET?

    DAMN, that was annoying as hell.

    What’s the chances of the first person speaking on behalf of the Hip Hop Community, Russell Simmons, and the first student speaking from Spelman having a lisp? lol

    From the famous Hip hop song
    “Don’t push me cause I’m close to the edge, I’m try’in not to loose my head”
    We’ve been pushed, and some of Hip Hop has lost it’s head and gone under.

    Its funny how no one here mentioned the spellman ladies…

    You guys are completely missing the point: no one is trying to destroy rap… Just why do all female references need tp be a hoe and a bitch? I undertand that these “poets” (no way im gonna consider Diddy, Joc or the Ying Yang twins poets) have had issues with females that deserved the name… But why do ALL females have to be hoes??

    I’m a female. I go to school. I mind my business. I don’t mind others. I start no trouble. But still, if I go to a club, dressed APROPRIATELY, and I turn a man down, POLITELY… I’m a bitch, I’m a hoe, and all this shit.

    These words in the rap game are just not always necessary. The words ladies and females can fit into these lyrics so easily. It’s not about destroying rap: Its about respecting ladies, because the MAJORITY women are not bitches and hoes…

    The same men on the panel missed the whole point too: Its about respecting females… Why’s Kevin talking about his son and Timmy and how the integrate?… The females are still being called hoes!…

  44. Zack, 18 Says:

    Its one more example of the roundabout of our coporate society. Blinded by those above us, theres more than one layer to any situation. If degrading and dehumanizing women is in the interest of record sales, its in the interest of rappers and labels alike to maintain the image in the interest of MONEY. Its capitolism that screws us up. Its the history of this countrys power over others, and its own citizens. Not only is it our right, its our repsonsibility to stand up against our government, music regulators, and analysts included, if it steers us wrong. Thats why forums like this are necessary. Just reading this, spreading this, talking this, making art about this, is fighting for the cause. Spread the love, spread the music, spread the knowledge. Cause “life without knowledge is death in disguise” – Talib and Mos

  45. No More Bitches, Hoes, or Niggas: Russell Simmons’ Recommendation at Hip Hop @ JiveFood Says:

    […] On Oprah they kept showing the Tip drill video as an example of how women are disrespected. In the entire video I didn’t see not one bitch being forced to shake her ass or drop it like it’s hot. They looked like they were having fun. If you want rappers to stop portraying bitches like this, tell them bitches to stop auditioning for the part. Another example is the bitch in the picture I have up top. The site where I got it from doesn’t even give her a name, they call her “white bikini”. This shit is crazy, that’s all I have to say… […]
