Asher Roth’s Bad “Nappy Headed Hoes” Joke on Twitter

When I signed on to Twitter today, one of my favorite Tweeters @ToureX was talking about the “joke” Asher Roth tried to make while tweeting at an event at Rutgers University.  He referred to the people he was with at the time as “Nappy Headed Hoes”.  The tweet was OF COURSE deleted.  No surprise there.  However, people screen captured it before that happened so the proof still remains – click here for one of the many sites that has posted the screenshot.  

Of course he apologized (or something like that) — “Totally just making fun of Don Imus – Sorry Scoot, not trying to be offensive … I’m extremely apologetic to anyone who took offense to my immature, bad joke.”  Now the apology is also gone from his feed.  Surprised?  I’m not.  He’s on Universal/Motown.  Sylvia ain’t having that.  I hope she docks his pay.  Bamma move, bamma.  *shaking my head*

Um, don’t bring up the name of Imus at a time like this.  We don’t need you to tell us where you got “nappy headed hoes” from.  Where else would your white, frat boy self get aquatinted with such terminology?  We know you’re not the type of white rapper who hung out in the hood with “the homies” learning ghetto slang and what not.  Right, Assho…I mean Asher.  You’re like Eminem, right?  If he went to private school and had a trust fund, right?  Um, no.

Whatever, I didn’t even know who this kid was till like 3 or 4 weeks ago when I flipped to MTV and saw him performing “I Love College” during the spring break madness.  Should I really dedicate a post to this One Download Wonder?  

Well, I am.  Even though black people are not likely his target audience (He’s not looking for street cred, folks.) he should be careful of how his words can quickly effect his record sales.  Black people ARE popular culture right now…and you’re bread and butter is something we created.  At least respect hip hop culture enough to understand that words have Power.  I need Professor Griff or somebody to school him.

Stephen Colbert Vs. Kanye West: So it begins

“You’re Not The Voice Of A Generation. With All That Auto-Tuning, You’re Not Even The Voice Of Your Own Album”

[I can’t get this to embed so here is the link]

Umm…Wow! That electronic voice crack…that had to hurt. I have to agree the FreeCreditReport.com guys really do say alot about this generation. My question though…are Kanye and Stephen in the same generation?? Are they talking about the same generation? I’m not too sure of that.

I didn’t know they had beef.  Interesting.

CNET is reporting – Will Colbert’s ‘Operation Humble Kanye’ work?

If you caught his show on Monday or Tuesday you know he is asking for the Colbert Nation to go on iTunes today at exactly 5 p.m. EST to purchase his album, A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All. Currently, Kanye West has the No. 1 album on iTunes and Colbert is peeved. (His is No. 15.) Thus, he wants us all, at one moment, to collectively catapult his album to the top. It’s not to help Colbert, he insists, but to humble Kanye.

He said, “I want boots on the ground, and do your Twitter blogging to each other and get it all together–whatever you kids do. It’s important.”
