    Truth be told, I don’t think Currency is a bad rapper by any means. The only thing he has going against IMO is a complete lack of accomplishments. Without being murdered, it’s hard to claim a legitimate legacy for yourself when you’ve never ascended the level of ‘mixtape legend’.

    Chronicle was pretty ill. One of the better original super hero film concepts I’ve seen. Feels like the first story arc of a new ongoing comic.

    The kid Wallace from The Wire….he’s got the potential to make a name for himself as an actor. He just needs to be smart in the films he chooses to do & with Chronicle he’s off to a good start.

  47. why? Says:

    “It didn’t look like Kanye West, the most nominated man at Sunday (February 12) night’s Grammys, was going to make an appearance at the show, but even before the curtain came up, he was already a big winner.

    West came into the night with a leading seven nominations, and though he was controversially shut out of the Album of the Year race, he pulled off a near clean sweep in hip-hop categories handed out before the show. ‘Ye scored a win in the Best Rap Album race, taking the award for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, beating out his collabo with Jay-Z on Watch the Throne, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV, Lupe Fiasco’s Lasers and Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday.

    “Everybody’s working hard and he’s definitely another big artist in the game,” Tyga told MTV News’ Sway on the Grammy red carpet when news broke about the West wins. With 17 nominations for the YMCMB crew, label boss Baby didn’t have much to add about West’s win, though Weezy had plenty to say in a pre-Grammy freestyle in which he took shots at West and Jigga.

    West also scooped up Best Rap Song for “All of the Lights” and Best Rap Song Collaboration for that song’s hook-up with Rihanna, Fergie and Kid Cudi. In that category he beat out some other major players, including Beyoncé and Andre 3000′s “Party”; DJ Khaled’s “I’m on One” with Drake, Rick Ross and Wayne; Eminem, Dr. Dre and Skylar Grey’s “I Need a Doctor”; Rihanna’s “What’s My Name” featuring Drake; and the Kelly Rowland/Weezy duet “Motivation.””
