Features: A look at some of the most entertaining Tweets of the past week from the Hip Hop Twittersphere. Gems from this week include: relationship advice from Slim Thug, Ice T imparts knowledge for tax season, and Tyler, The Creator fights for hip hopâs life.
Welcome to the inaugural â140 Bars or Lessâ post where I compile the weekâs âbest-in tweetâ in the world of Hip Hop. 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.
Here are ten of the best tweets from the past week in no particular order â except the last spot reserved for âtweet of the weekâ. (In the coming weeks, if you see any tweets by known rappers you think should be included then let me know @BrandonBombay.)
Personally, when I want to inform hotel staff about my arrival, I check-in at the front desk, usually under a reservation, grab my room keys, and inquire about the amenities â but hey Budden, different strokes for different folks.
I donât think I want to see what he does when he gets to a resort.
Always a wordsmith, I can picture a teenage Royce handing in his English homework filled with rich metaphors and similes crumpled into a ball.
Keeping with the homework motif, it would be interesting to hear Nickleâs take on nipple piercings â nipple piercings are not appropriate if your nipples look like they were chewed up like a dog toy. Oh no, I donât think my mindâs eye could handle the images Royce would conjure if you asked him about genital piercings.
Lohan: âHey, Snoop, can I grab some more of that kush from you?â
Snoop: âDamn girl, I just gave you a quarter, like two days ago. You smoked all that already?â
T offers up some solid adv-ICE (I know, sorry). Pay your taxes, and if you have large unclaimed income then donât go around flaunting your wealth, lest you end up like Wesley Snipes.
However, not everything captured on film is an accurate portrayal of real life. You can drive around in a Lambourghini in a music video, but not actually own and pay insurance for one.
You can play a soldier in a movie and not be in the military. I mean Arnold Schwarzenegger doesnât collect a veteranâs pension for his portrayal as Special Forces team leader, John Matrix in âCommandoâ, right? âŠ
French Montana might know the Streets, but apparently struggles with geography. For those of you unfamiliar with Canadaâs vast landscape, saying âjust crossed the Montreal border into Canadaâ is akin to announcing you âcrossed the Memphis border into America.â
James Brown isnât considered part of the hip hop oeuvre? Damn, guess I should update my favorite artists list then.
Telling a hip hop DJ to stop spinning James Brown and âplay some hip hopâ is like going into a rock bar and telling them to turn off The Rolling Stones and âplay some rock ân rollâ.
Sorry Mac, but Iâm going to have to CENSOR your spelling here. I imagine this tweet was directed at âModern Familyâ sexpot Sophia Vergara. Youâre right though, letâs see some titties on that muthafuckin television!
Really, itâs that simple, all you have to do is ask, and girls will have a mĂ©nage-a-trois with you?
Gentlemen, if you get the ânutsâ to ask your girlfriend to have a threesome, do yourself a favor: stop. If you read that tweet and had a revelation wash over you, âya, know what, Iâm gonna just ask Cindy if I can get with her and her best friend. Its simplicity is its genius.â Stop. You know what shy dudes really donât get? Stabbed in the leg by their girlfriend.
Apparently, The Game only judges books by their cover. Guess you can do that when youâre a âHandsome Ass N***aâ.
Tyler, the Creator either really loves hip hop, or really hates fourteen year olds. I find this tweet confusing, was this unnamed fourteen year old telling you, or simply posing a question?
Clearly, Tyler isnât a fan of Nasâ âHip Hop is Deadâ track. He drops two shades of âF-bombâ (four and six lettered), and so much vitriol in this tweet that it could play as a diss-track: âyou fucking cock sucker, you are 14/ got me wiping the floors with ya, Mr Clean/ Hey Nas, Hip Hop ainât Dead, now youâve been told/ stop acting like a bitter 40 year oldâŠ *drops mic*â
