A number of people have added me to their blog rolls lately. I appreciate that. I have to update mine soon, so if I have commented on your blog, and you aren't presently listed on mine, let me know. Further, if I hadn't commented on your site and you want me to check it out, let me know. However, it IS busy season, so be patient with me.
Okay, I have one rant today for you. It involves rap or more accurately rappers. Why do they "name" themselves something strange? Why do they even have a "rap name"? Isn't "Sean Combs" enough? Why have all this "Diddy" business?
Listen up, rappers, YOU ARE NOT A BAND! You have a name. As crazy as Michael Jackson is, he didn't go by Prince Poppa Mac.
I can understand why bands have a name. I mean who would buy a record from a group called "Paul, John, George, and Ringo"? However, Paul McCartney has always done pretty well in his solo career by putting "Paul McCartney" on his albums.
However, we have Snoop, Ja Rule (what is that?), and my personal favorite - 50 Cent. You know, I may just change my mind about this topic. Maybe I will just out-gangsta Curtis Jackson (50 Cent). Maybe I should change my name to Fitty Sin. Nice ring to it, no? My new blog name could be Psycho Wit by Fitty Sin. Yeah man, that is tight!
