Welcome to this week’s ‘140 Bars Or Less’ post where we look at the “best-in tweet” in the world of Hip Hop. This week Slim Thug gives thanks, Curren$y gives bottles, and Soulja Boy gives kicks...Oh, and Gary Coleman haunts from the grave.
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.
Check out the article's Twitter account here, where we post even more re-tweets. If you see any tweets by known rappers you think should be included then let us know @140BarsorLess
10. Soulja Boy
Buying sneakers for a fan just out of love is pretty damn solid. I mean, if someone came up to me in the mall saying they were a fan I might be able to grab them a taco from the food court.
Hopefully Soulja continues to buy luxury cars by the pair, and kicks for his fans all while tweeting about it. Dude is operating on another stratosphere, cause this isn’t “real life” stuff for the average person.
Pharrell’s been in the game awhile and worked with almost everyone in the industry, but still hearing about him in the studio with Miley Cyrus sounds strange. Even stranger, is seeing them tweet at each other. This odd rap/pop pairing would be like Justin Bieber working with Raekwon, or Big Sean...only prettier.
Free flowing alcohol is integral to any party, but you might want to rethink handing over a full bottle to a chick lest she get wasted and transform into a ratchet right before your eyes. You know the saying “give a girl a drink, she’ll take a litre”.
Getting recognition in your hometown is dope and all, but might wanted to make sure they didn’t confused you with Yelawolf.
6. 50 Cent
There’s just something inherently funny about Fifty trying to stop his son from being mischievous, while he’s made millions exploiting his street life persona.
Maybe his sit down with Oprah has him being a lot more Curtis Jackson and less 50 Cent these days.
5. Meek Mill
Finding out most rappers rock fake jewels is like finding out Santa Clause isn’t real. Next you’re going to tell me that rappers don’t actually own all the cars in their videos.
Anyone who follows this column knows I am not a big proponent of shady cab drivers. I’m sure Cormega’s cabbie was hilarious, and engaging. I’m also sure he was loaded up on a fifth of whiskey. Anytime you have an overly friendly/funny cab driver then it’s probably Jack Daniel’s driving the car.
3. Wiz Khalifa
Being haunted by the ghost of Gary Coleman wouldn’t be so bad. I can think of a lot scarier ghosts to haunt me from beyond the grave...like that scary-ass Webster (Emmanuel Lewis).
1. Slim Thug
Speaking of the powers above, Slim thanks God for threesomes. What I don’t get is why he’s thanking God for something he said was possible for anyone willing to ask. Just to be safe, next time you have a threesome make sure you thank God, Jesus, Allah, Buddha, and any other higher power you can think of. You can never be too safe when it comes to these matters.
