    OR…

    Maybe yall just on the wrong sites. Myspace, Facebook, etc. is for the youngans, but joints like Mingle City (Michael Baisden’s joint) and a few others have plenty of older, cougar-type heffas.

    >>Ego Tripping is aight too. I can listen to that shit for a good while, until he wilds out with that off the wall track that sounds like some country shit.

    ^”That Girl” is just some smooooove ass shit. Like, I played that song (and video, madd fine shorties in it) at least a dozen times in a row.

    The best part about R&G is that I actually copped it IN L.A. while I was there 4 years ago. Nothing better than driving down the clean streets of Pasadena… windows down… perfect weather… and blastin’ that album. Blue Carpet was solid too.

    ^that was the same shit with me and Ego Tripping. I used to drive down the 110 blasting that shit, or down by hollywood blvd, with my Yankee fitted on. Bitches was loving the NY lean I had going in the whip.

    Until I stopped at a light, and a car of Ese’s pulled up next to me. All the windows were tinted the fuck out, and they all rolled down to the length that all i could see was eyes. Son said, where you from holmes…

    *Gulp*
    *Fixes Ice Grill*

    BROOKLYN

    Silence ensues… Aight holmes. Be safe out here. They peeled off, and I cut that snoop shit off. Threw on Biggie Going Back To Cali

    EDIT

    My badd, it’s “Those Girls”. The other joint, “That Girl”, is the song with Pharrell, which is also pretty dope.

    ^LMAO. Damn, sound like you almost got G-checked. I swear I packed nothin’ but white tees, my white Orioles hat and my AF1’s when I went there. I aint want noooooo problems. My homie is respected where he from and all that but still. He gave me the hood tour: Carson, Compton, Inglewood, and the Crip chick who bagged me at a club took me to breakfast the next day in Watts. Her name was LaShay. Madd cool. Older chick. College type. Had Thanksgiving in Moreno Valley at my manz family crib. Houses out there are proper.

    Charles Hamilton recently explained why he believes the commercial image of labelmate Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em sparked unwanted comparisons that framed him as a gimmick.

    In a recent radio interview, Hamilton blamed his Interscope labelmate Soulja Boy for the hate he’s been receiving on the net. “I’m not trying to play Soulja Boy but chill. It’s because of Souja Boy that my day to day, the way I live, the Sonic the Hedgehog shit that’s dead real to me is considered a joke.”

    Charles Hamilton is a young rapper from Harlem who inked a deal with Interscope Records’ boss Jimmy Iovine earlier this year. Yesterday Hamilton released the Pink Lava Lamp, the last installment in the eight part mixtape series and internet marketing scheme he calls The Hamiltonization Process. Much of his mixtape music centered around his obsession with the video gaming system Sega Genesis and its once popular character Sonic The Hedgehog.

    Hamilton told ThisIs50.com that his obsession with the video game character started way before he inked his major label deal.
    “I been on my Sonic shit since before the deal,” Hamilton said, in an attempt to explain why he is no gimmick. “Jimmy [Iovine] did not tell me hey we’re trying to work with Sonic. I developed my own shit over time. I been the same me. So don’t compare me to somebody who made a great marketing ploy when I’m just living my life regular.”

    Old heads can get young bitches but you have to be live and not on the nets. Just head to the mall all clean and bitches giggle around you with they best forever21 gear, holler at them and they wet they panties on the strength. Take that 19yrd old broad to Chilis or BJ’s and they think you are treating them like royalty or get them into a 21 and over club and see them go nuts, drink and fuck and suck you offf that night something great. Dont ever talk to them again and see them act all crazy for about a month and then head back to their ex who isnt doing shit and asks her for gas money.

    Hopefully this is a good look for the Roots. Serious exposure and I’m sure the consistent GE checks won’t hurt either.

    Ice-T doesn’t plan on leaving Law 7 Order SVU any time soon.
