Welcome to this weekâs â140 Bars Or Lessâ post where we look at the âbest-in tweetâ in the world of Hip Hop. This week Common gets his âhair didâ, Slim Thug hooks up with âratchetsâ, and Mac Miller puts the âassâ in âfirst classâ.
Dissecting the funniest, most entertaining, and outrageous tweets from some of the biggest names in rap who are on Twitter. Twitter is intriguing to fans because it offers an un-buffered forum into the minds of some of your favorite artists. The material is often raw and unfiltered, and lucky for us, most of these guys have no filter.
Was going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena. Wow. Smh. Go Spurs!â LIL WAYNE WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) May 31, 2012
If you havenât heard this story, basically, Wayne contacted the Oklahoma City Thunder hours before a massive playoff game in the Western Conference Finals and requested a courtside seat, and special security. The Thunder could not accommodate him, and Wayne took it as a personal affront. Who knew OKCâs front office was filled with Pusha-T fans.
I tired of making it rain!!! I want a free lap dance! Lol.. A sampleâ MEEK MILL (@MeekMill) June 4, 2012
As I have mentioned in the past, money is vital to a stripperâs well-being, they virtual view cash as their sustenance, so good look on securing that âsampleâ lap dance. Why would Meek Mill âmake it rainâ at a strip club, and throwing bills all over the floor. Thereâs an old saying âwhy buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free?â, and this applies to strippers as such âwhy grind naked on the customer, when you can pick up the cash for free?â
[Even Rihanna makes it rain in the strip club, as previously featured.]
SNOOP DOGG (@SnoopDogg) May 31, 2012
What happened to the days of drinking 40s, they seem to have lost their luster as a disgusting, yet effective way to get proper-angry drunk. This nostalgic picture, just shows you how cool Snoop is. For one, heâs got a cane, that resembles a hockey stick, and for a time there he was basically the spokesman for consuming 40oz of malt liquor. Making drinking 40s of St. Ides, and Old English cool, would be like eating White Castle burgers seem couture.
Y'all ain't come on twitter without freshening up First? Nasty ass tweetsâ Ghostface Killah (@GhostfaceKillah) June 3, 2012
I donât know if people are getting on Twitter âwithout freshening up firstâ, or if Ghostface just has lofty standards. The main is renowned for the clothes and jewelry he wears. The type of guy that would wear a Polo cashmere robe to the store, might have a different view of whatâs ânastyâ than your average Joe.
S/O to Silk salon y'all took care of me. Beautiful staff too ... The females obviouslyâ COMMON (@common) June 5, 2012
Probably the most effeminate tweet I have seen since starting this column. Common needs to employ some âcommon senseâ, heâs a male rapper giving shout outs to a salon. Wherever you get your haircut is none of my business, just like whoever you hook up with isnât. A man going to a salon is like a man hooking up with a sub-par girl, do whatever you got to do, but donât broadcast it on Twitter.
This girl told me I can't fuck wit u slim u fucked my friend. My reply: So everybody fucked her it shouldn't stop usâ SLIM THUG (@slimthugga) June 1, 2012
Again, a case of a rapper airing out too much information. Donât know why Slim is telling everyone heâs hooking up with girls that everyoneâs had a piece of. You can just hear Slim now trying to convince the friend âSweetie, look, I know I was with your friend in the past, but that was a different time in my life and Iâve changed. She meant nothing to me, not like the feelings I have for you. Plus, basically like everybody been up in that bitch.â
Soho club in Moscow! Russian securitylook serious in the front door ! But we good they know my face! Let's go Moscow !â WYCLEF Jean (@WYCLEF) June 1, 2012
Only time Iâd be worried in a club at Moscow is when the security guards are not looking dead serious. About the only place more frightening to be without good security is Haiti, but I guess WYCLEF has that covered.
I think I just found out why ppl say artists "change" when they get the so-called "big-head". And the sudden realization is making me smileâ T-PAIN (@TPAIN) June 4, 2012
Itâs relieving to see that T-PAIN has it all figured out, and as the quintessential voice of auto-tune. Dude is basically to voice modulation, what Michael Jordan is to sneakers. Good thing none of it has affected him, and he doesnât have a âbig headâ.

Why is every flight attendant in first class always disrespectful as fuck to me...â MAC MILLER (@MacMiller) June 3, 2012
Itâs common to hear people in coach complain about a flight, or the flight attendants, but itâs rare to hear someone in first class complain about the service. How much of an ass did you have to be to get disrespected in first class. You know Mac, if every time youâre in first class the flight attendants are mistreating you, then you might want to look at the one constant here, you.
TYLER, THE CREATOR
THIS OLD BLACK BITCH IN WALGREENS JUST TOLD ME I NEED TO GET MY SHIT TOGETHER. HAHAHAHAHA OKâ TYLER, THE CREATOR (@fucktyler) June 3, 2012
Ah, TYLER, THE CREATOR, a constant contributor to â140 Bars or Lessâ for his unfiltered caps lock-heavy Twitter rants. The woman in question might be onto something here, especially when you factor in how you referenced her on Twitter. At the end of the tweet Tyler says âOKâ so maybe this is an indication that heâs ready to turn a new leaf and stop screaming like a 13 year old with ADHD all the time. Or maybe this was just a misunderstanding, and Tyler was in the drugstore for an incontinence issue, and the woman was just trying to be helpful.
