Clothing label Tripp NYC confirmed on their Facebook page that the leopard bottoms are actually a women’s style, and available for purchase on Karmaloop.com for $44. After confirmation the jeggings immediatly sold out.
The other day when Jim Jones Tweeted About Lil Wayne’s Jeggings:“Real Men Don’t wear spandex. SMH LOL. So these rappers n RnB singers start gang bangin n claiming blood after th became famous n made millions WTF Wher they do tht at.”
This got me thinking about the state of Hip Hop. Flavor Flav used to rap “Fight The Power” Kool Moe D rapped about the “Wild WIld West” LL Cool J rapped about his adidas. Ice Cube rapped “Phuck The Police” along with Easy E rapping “Straight Outta Compton.” 50 Cent Pumped out Rap Lyrics while doing upside down sit ups with his shirt off. If you really think about it the hardest rapper alive right now who embodies hip hop is Eminem. These other rappers put on some strange behavior…
Although Lil Wayne is a walking contradiction between the dreads, rapping, skateboarding and college degree, you have to admit that he does some very gay shat.. Lil Wayne who has kissed Baby in the mouth, now speaks very proper and wears lil tight pants and is now beating out Jay Z in album sales.
Gucci Mane went and got an icecream cone tatted on his cheek: BURR!
The Game got a butterfly tattooed on his face:
Here is Flo Rida eating at the Candy Factory at the Paris hotel in Vegas yesterday. Sucking so lovingly on a Lollipop that you have to admit looks very suspect. I mean he is sucking so hard his nostrils are flared up.
What is going on with hip hop. Are Hip Hop fans simply letting the music speak for them and no longer caring about the individual preferences of the artist, or is hip being blinded and slowly being cultivated into a bunch of sweetie pies. What does it mean to be a hip hop artist these days? No clear image will come to mind… It has been watered down.
When we question this behavior are we unfairly questioning the masculinity of these males? Is anyone other than Jim Jones worried about the state of Hip Hop?
My question is: Have the people spoken? Is this what you want? Is Lil Wayne The Future of Hip Hop?
