Another Cast Member of L&HH ATL Films a Sex Tape!


"MediaTakeOut.com LEAKED THE FOOTAGE last year of MiMi and Nikko's SEXTAPE . . . well now we've learned that the NEWEST ADDITION to the cast of Love And Hip Hop New York has a SEXTAPE . . . and it just got LEAKED TO US.

Love And Hip Hop New York will add a new castmember next season - JHONNI BLAZE. She's a stripper that is managed by Rich Dollaz, and if you've seen her on MTO in the past . . . she knows how to TURN UP!!!

Anyways, we just got our hands on some EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE - of a "sextape" that she made. But if you look at the angles shot, it's clear that the video was PROFESSIONALLY SHOT - so calling it a "sextape" is a bit of a stretch.

Looks to us like SOMEBODY is trying to follow in MiMi's footsteps and get a couple MILLION OUTTA VIVID when Love And Hip Hop NY airs in a few months. If we're LEAKING the videos, and drumming up interest in them - shouldn't we get a CUT OF THE PROFITS???? We're just saying . . . it's a struggle outchea."

Breaking Down the Hip Hop Vocabulary

When it comes to grading and comparing hip-hop artists, there are a number of attributes that need to be examined: flow, message, beat selection, popularity and so on. A category that is often overlooked is vocabulary. Tallying up a single artist's word choice is a tall order, but given the significant use of slang and differing discography depths between artists, finding a balanced measurement is a difficult accomplishment.

New York-based designer, coder and data scientist Matt Daniels took up this challenge, pulling out the number of unique words from the first 35,000 lyrics of 85 artists -- unfortunately excluding artists like Kendrick Lamar and Biggie, as they just don't have enough content -- and using Shakespeare as a benchmark under the same condition. The clear champion is Aesop Rock, coming in with 7,392 words, easily beating Shakespeare's 5,170 words, as well as Herman Melville's 6,022 words in "Moby Dick."



 

Following behind Aesop Rock, is the Wu-Tang Clan, as well as the solo works of members GZA, RZA and Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and Method Man, falling just short of Shakespeare's total. At the very end of the spectrum we have DMX with 3,214 words. Other selections of note: Insane Clown Posse has 4,146 words, which comes in ahead of Kanye West's 3,982 words and serves as proof that the importance and meaning of vocabulary is sometimes a little blurry.

To see where more of your favorite rappers land, and a further breakdown of Wu-Tang Clan's place(s) on the interactive chart, head over to Daniels' page, and make sure to check out more of his insightful analyses.
