Video: Danny Brown – Gypped by a Crackhead

Pitchfork animates a tale of a crack transaction gone horribly wrong as told by Danny Brown. This is funny as shit and well animated and like much of Pitchfork’s Rap related content, I enjoyed it. That said, why is it cool to laugh at Danny selling crack to his community, discharging a firearm and assaulting an addict but the image of Chief Keef firing a gun, legally, is all of a sudden unacceptable? At what point does shit get too real? Because I’ll tell ya, it’s pretty fucking real in most of the neighborhoods that birthed these rappers that we listen to everyday. It’s one thing when misery is being related to you through Rap lyrics, but when that shit pops up on your Twitter timeline, is that too close to home? At that point do you being to pass judgement on the rapper for living the shit that you were so entertained by when it was just a story being told through verse?

    Shit is mad true.How the fuck you got peanuts with yams and goat meat together in one pot???

    Another african stereotype is that patchouli oil that they wear so much, it`s like curry to the indian coming all out the pores and shit.

  5. JDS of the Cobra Kai Dojo Says:

    It’s not about it being unacceptable. Kids his age, and younger, are exposed to guns all over the country.

    It was just insensitive to the epidemic in the Chi. Keef is the default face for all of that, so it was tasteless.

    ROFF @ getting gypped by a crack head.

    It happens tho.

    And he would do shit like rename a bitch on some “Your name is no longer Shanelle, it is now Violet” type shit and then niggas would actually call her Violet on some “Well, I mean, Prince renamed her”.

    Boss Shit

    simply put, because Keef is now linked to an ongoing investigation.

    Danny Brown coulda made that shit up for all we know

    That shit is fucking delicious.

    I had some African shit that smelled like rank pussy but this shit was hella scrumptious.

  10. AmpGeez a.k.a. Amphernee Hardaway Says:

    Danny’s handlers are fucking clueless. That kid needs constant supervision as well as some one street enough so he respects them but someone old & wise enough to give the young boy some game on how this whole shit works.

    As long as he doesn’t get connected to that Jojo murder, I think he’ll be ok.

    I hope Reesey ain’t involved in this shit neither.

  11. AmpGeez a.k.a. Amphernee Hardaway Says:

    Keef’s > Danny’s

  12. Chief Ali Says:

    i’ve never had Afrikan cousine, which is a damn shame b/c we’ve got quite a few Ethiopian, Nigerian and Somolian food spots in the Chi. Most of them bitches be on the northside though, and I been on some fuck the northside shit lately.

  13. Jackson7 Says:

    and whatever they season that nasty ass yellow rice with is horrible..

    no wonder africans be skinny

    meals aint fun

  14. Jackson7 Says:

    sampusas tho >>>>>>

  15. Danny Ocean Says:

    cosign the anniversary of the first Blueprint dropping today trumping the anniversary of the 9/11 plane crashes

  16. Chief Ali Says:

    I hope Reesey ain’t involved in this shit neither.

    ——-

    Reese pops is a well known and respected black disciple with years in the game. With that said its highly unlikely that Reese and his people’s wasn’t involved, especially since he was the one being threatened.

    My brother mentioned that both Reese and Durk were dropped by Def Jam.

    Pitchfork stays on that shit though. they cool when the ignorance is “all in good fun”, but once it gets “too real”, they back up and find their morals.
