Welcome to this week’s ‘140 Bars Or Less’ post where we look at the “best-in tweet” in the world of Hip Hop. The hottest tweets this week offer advice to men on how to get respect, discuss the best smelling man alive, and man-scaping.
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.
We recently started a new Twitter account for this feature, so check it out. If you see any tweets by known rappers you think should be included then let us know @140BarsorLess.
TYLER THE CREATOR
Looks like Tyler, the Creator has a part-time job - freelance Hallmark card writer. What day was this, did I miss it, and most importantly, what are you expected to get someone to commemorate this day? Flowers probably won’t suffice as a gift for someone that ‘got smashed and popped out a little shit a couple months later’. They probably could use a day at the spa though.
At least Tyler didn’t totally desecrate women on Mother’s Day, he did refer to them as ‘ladies’.
MACHINE GUN KELLY
Where was Kelly performing that the shower was littered with pubic hair? Has this shower not been cleaned in twenty five years? That’s the only explanation, because in this age of ‘man-scaping’ there is no excuse for dudes to be dropping unwanted furry lint anywhere, let alone a public facility.
Quest Love is the driving force of the Roots who have managed to be prolific and transcendent for nearly two decades, he’s collaborated with countless rappers and musicians, is the band-leader on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s, all while juggling multiple side projects. Not to mention, he’s the “best smellingest man alive”. No wonder Old Spice created that character based on him.
Kreayshawn is a bombshell and one of the rising starlets of hip hop [Read: New Ladies of Hip Hop]. She’s also one of those hot girls that believe everyone wants to hear her every thought, girl tweets about 183 times a day. Getting her to keep quiet must be a chore, and any guy dating her probably wishes she would ‘play dead’ once in awhile.
Cosign this. This however, is not a statement against sexy females who do the same thing in bikinis or hot club gear – it’s classy, bordering on poetic when girls with banging bodies take provocative self shot pics, but guys come off needy when they do it.
This emo-rap personae is starting to wear extremely thin. How many girls outside of possibly Rihanna, or Beyonce would act complacent dating Drake? Maybe he’s so used to women screaming and fawning over him that when someone he’s dating isn’t constantly losing her shit just by being near him he views it as ‘complacent’. Now that he’s made it, Drake has taken a ‘too much of a good thing, is a bad thing’ approach to the luxuries celebrity affords. That’s bullshit. Some things you can never get too much of: gorgeous sunny summer days, Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic”, and blowjobs.
Just as Tony Montana famously quoted in the gangster-opus, Scarface: first you get the money, then you get the power, then you get…the dick? Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers 2 is getting heavy rotation around the internets, so ladies if you happen to run across Meek, tell him how much you respect him.
Soulja Boy might want to reassess his stance on ‘monkey see, monkey do’ behavior. Were it not for club goers mindlessly mimicking the masses and 'Superman-ing' to 'Crank Dat' then his single would not have exploded the way it did. Don’t be shocked if after falling off in a few years, Soulja Boy releases a comeback album laced with club hits that all feature specific easy-to-do dance moves: ‘Monkee C Monkee Doo’.
Wait, Budden’s the Bobby Brown of Slaughterhouse? Does that mean he does coke, heroin, crack, and even smokes crack-laced blunts [Huffington Post Article]. He's been cited for several lewd public acts, arrested for drunk driving, resisting arrest, has been diagnosed with ADD and being bi-polar? Well, that’s his prerogative.
