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 Amber Rose is a ‘Menace II Society’, Rick Ross talks female fragrance, and Talib Kweli pontificates the devaluing state of ‘rap beef’.
Dissecting the funniest, most entertaining, and outrageous tweets from some of the biggest names in rap who are on Twitter. Â Twitter is intriguing to fans because it offers an un-buffered forum into the minds of some of your favorite artists. Â The material is often raw and unfiltered, and lucky for us, most of these guys have no filter.
Check out the article'sÂ Twitter accountÂ here. Â If you see any tweets by known rappers you think should be included then let usÂ know@140BarsorLess.
Rap beef has passed ârecessionâ, and like the US economy of â08 has plummeted straight to âdepressionâ. Â The days of âEtherâ vs. âThe Takeoverâ are a thing of the past, and Kweliâs right, your two cents is not worth what it used to be, hell, in todayâs diss-track landscape you would be lucky to fetch two pesos on rap battle. Â Canibus must be rolling in his graveâ¦
Fabolous chimes in on the current state of rap battles declining into âTwitter beefâ. Â He rightly draws the analogy of, todayâs rappers taking to Twitter to 'Air beef', with tensions between Zack and Slater on a âSaved By the Bellâ episode [And what the hell happened to Lisa's face!]. Â Only there was more real-life tension wondering who would get a piece of Kelly Kapowski in that show, than todayâs âTweets are cheapâ rap battle arena. Â
I canât stand when I get good customer service either. Â How does Prodigy react to poor customer service? Â What if he was in a store like Target. Â I know what he means, I canât stand good cordial customer service either. Â
Dude should take his own advice and "Drink Away the Pain."Â
You have to applaud The Game championing people to get tested for venereal diseases. Â His fear of someone catching a VD from a skeevy girl and bringing âdat nasty shit homeâ is unfounded though. Â Even if you know a person that has a VD youâre in the clear as long as you arenât nestled up beside them in bed. Â That shit isnât airborne like the Ebola virus. Â
You ever have a girl borrow a hoodie from you and not return it and she says âit smells like youâ? Â I guess thatâs how Rohzay is with borrowing blunts from girls. Â
Amber Rose is sex incarnate and has a body so banging it looks like she was designed in a video-ho lab. Â She dated Kanye âfuckingâ West, and is now the long-time partner of Taylor Gangâs Wiz Khalifa â and her bucket list, outrageous feats she hopes to accomplish before she dies, includes a trip to Compton? Â I can see visiting Compton because youâve always been enamored with the âG Cultureâ associated with it, but to include it as a lifetime achievement? Â Unless she got some fantastic deals as the Compton Swap Meet. Â
Tough to gauge if Maine is putting cats on blast or not, I mean, who is his next door neighbor, and how tough is he/she? Â I guess it all depends on what kind of neighborhood he lives in, if itâs somewhere like Compton then his neighbor is probably hard as hell. Â
MACHINE GUN KELLY
I realize this was tweeted as a kind of joke, but how are you going to have âMachine Gunâ in your name, and talk about blankets in your âbunkâ giving you the willies. Â Might have to drop the âGunâ from his name and start calling him âMachine Bunk Kellyâ. Â He could be like âyou on the bottom, Iâm up on the top.â Â
You can just hear the moderator of the addiction group now:Â âThe first step towards recovery is admitting you have a problem, and weâre here to help you. Â But please, Freddie, no last names, weâre trying to keep this anonymous. â
Slim Thug, a staple at â140 Bars or Lessâ, and early frontrunner for âFather of the Yearâ, tweets to his 300,000+ followers about the pain of being dragged to see his son dance, and how heâd be more pleased if he was attending a game his son was playing in. Â Slim, you work in the entertainment industry, whatâs so wrong with singing and dancing, seems yourself and a lot of folks you know make a great living off of it.
