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 Common gets his ‘hair did’, Slim Thug hooks up with ‘ratchets’, and Mac Miller puts the ‘ass’ in ‘first class’.
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.
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. Â The Thunder could not accommodate him, and Wayne took it as a personal affront. Â Who knew OKCâs front office was filled with Pusha-T fans.
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. Â Why would Meek Mill âmake it rainâ at a strip club, and throwing bills all over the floor. Â 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.]
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. Â This nostalgic picture, just shows you how cool Snoop is. Â 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. Â Making drinking 40s of St. Ides, and Old English cool, would be like eating White Castle burgers seem couture.
I donât know if people are getting on Twitter âwithout freshening up firstâ, or if Ghostface just has lofty standards. Â The main is renowned for the clothes and jewelry he wears. Â 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.
Probably the most effeminate tweet I have seen since starting this column. Â Common needs to employ some âcommon senseâ, heâs a male rapper giving shout outs to a salon. Â Wherever you get your haircut is none of my business, just like whoever you hook up with isnât. Â 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.
Again, a case of a rapper airing out too much information. Â Donât know why Slim is telling everyone heâs hooking up with girls that everyoneâs had a piece of. Â 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. Â She meant nothing to me, not like the feelings I have for you. Â Plus, basically like everybody been up in that bitch.â
Only time Iâd be worried in a club at Moscow is when the security guards are not looking dead serious. Â About the only place more frightening to be without good security is Haiti, but I guess Wyclef has that covered.
Itâs relieving to see that T-Pain has it all figured out, and as the quintessential voice of auto-tune. Â Dude is basically to voice modulation, what Michael Jordan is to sneakers. Â Good thing none of it has affected him, and he doesnât have a âbig headâ.
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. Â How much of an ass did you have to be to get disrespected in first class. Â 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
Ah, Tyler, the Creator, a constant contributor to â140 Bars or Lessâ for his unfiltered caps lock-heavy Twitter rants. Â The woman in question might be onto something here, especially when you factor in how you referenced her on Twitter. Â 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. Â 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.Â
