2005 Rap Up

Every year Mad Skillz says he ain't gonna do another one, then he goes and does it anyway. We thought he was serious about not doing it this year, but then we were driving home last night and the new one came on Hot 97. Awesome.

Highlights: Lil' Kim in court, Nas & Kelis, Jamie's Oscar, Chappelle's millions, Bobby Brown, "Ordinary People," getting sick of hearing Mike Jones's name, Mariah's comeback, Michael Jackson's acquittal, 50 and Game's break up and make up, "Trapped in the Closet," ("by the time his case come up, we'll be at chapter 106"), Dipset ("brainwashed the kids"), Jeezy's Snowman t-shirt ban, Ying Yang, Gwen's "Hollaback," T.O., Run's House, Eve's porno, T-Pain, Lil' Wayne, "Laffy Taffy," Tookie, Justo Pryor. "Ciara and Bow Wow, they started dating, right? I mean he's three feet, there's no way he's laying the pipe!" On Katrina: "See it was sorta like watching a 9/11 sequel, then Kanye said Bush didn't care about black people. And we was all like Yeah, what he's saying is true, but I'm like, Ye, white people just started caring about you! I mean his album still sold, he ain't really blow his chance, but he set us all back with that Gold Digger dance." On the whole Stop Snitching thing: "It ain't gonna work. I told you I seen a seven year old with a Stop Snitchin' shirt. Don't get me wrong, homie, 'cause I'm not trying to be a preacher, but I'm like man, who snitched on you? Your kindergarten teacher?"
