Welcome to the blog of B Daht Obama! I've taken a new approach to MY blogs - I write letters to people. Hopefully one day some of the people can actually read the letters I write. If you have an idea of a letter you'd like me to write to someone (they don't HAVE to be in Sports) send it to theescore@yahoo. Hope you enjoy, and comments are STRONGLY encouraged!
When they 1st started these "Cyphers" they were better than pants with pockets, now, they've fallen off like a bad batch of dope. This 1st clip, I think the dude XV was witty, and I'll give love to the Chris Sutton cat because he's repping NC, but overall, a B at BEST!
But THEN, the Cypher get RIDICULOUSLY horrid. I wouldn't put my money on ANY of these dudes. Ever. But maybe I'm tripping.... YOU be the judge:
Rumor has it that these are the 2 weaker of the Cyphers, and may not even get aired. That'd be smart BET. Rumor also has it there are 2 other Cyphers: 1 with Big K.R.I.T & Kendrick Lamar, and 1 with Maybach Music Group: Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Pill & Wale.....now THAT might be POPPINGTON.
The Anniversary of Aaliyah's death is 3 days away. 2001 was a tough year. Less than a month after her death, we were mourning for the victims of 9-11.
Aaliyah's passing was SO tragic though. Something I will NEVER forget:
August 25, 2001: Club Icehouse
I remember it being around 12:30am, maybe 1am, and the DJ stopped the music.
âWow! May I have everyoneâs attention?? This story JUST broke yâall: Aaliyah is dead. She crashed in an airplane leaving a runway apparently, and Aaliyah is DEAD.â
The silence that engulfed the audience was DEAFNING.
I looked to the left: I saw a female consoling her female friend.
I looked to the right: I saw a hoodlum, teary eyed, pouring his Moet on the floor âIn Remembrance Ofâ.
The DJ then went into an Aaliyah set, playing all her hits: Age Ainât Nothing But a Number, Try Again, Rock the Boat, One in a Million, Back and Forth, If your girl only knew, Hot Like Fire, 4 Page Letter, etc.
I even had to sneak and wipe an almost tear away (as to not be the ONLY person in the club appearing to be an emotionless bastard).
If you werenât emotional at that point, you werenât human.
It was kinda difficult to bring the energy back after that. I remember the club getting extremely light once that announcement was made and her set was played.
Itâs funny how people are remembered though.
I remember WHILE SHE WAS LIVING, people would always talk about how much Aaliyah couldnât sing well LIVE. Now in her passing? Oh, Aaliyah had THE most âangelicâ voice anyone has ever heard.
I guess Big was right: âYouâre nobody, til somebody, kills youâ.
Even if the killing was accidental by a pilot who lied about how many hours he had actually flown, and had fraudulently gotten his Pilots license; & had alcohol and cocaine in his system, so says the autopsy.
R.I.P Aaliyah Dana Haughton. Iâm about to go watch Romeo Must Die.
