"I could be an international rap star, too." Please don’t, Dana Perino. Please don’t. (If this wasn’t painful enough, watch these.)

Snoop Dogg has adapted his hit “Drop It Like It’s Hot” into a Hot Pocket commercial (“Pocket Like It’s Hot”). As the LA Times accurately notes, the original song’s appeal lies with its “braggadocio and attitude: [Snoop’s] got it goin’ on and isn’t afraid to say so.” source

Childish Gambino: Eat Your Vegetables

(from Eat Your Vegetables)

Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, is known in the rap world for his smart lyrics that hide obscure pop culture references. In “Eat Your Vegetables,” a just-released track, he isn’t so subtle. The first verse ends with “Man I die for my hood, Trayvon.” Rap songs are time capsules, and with a verse like that, “Vegetables” is no exception. But that doesn’t mean Gambino’s afraid of throwing a joke into the tune. Example:

(Like when someone is like, ‘what happened to Chris?’ And you turn around and there’s a fat guy that kind of looks like Chris And you like, “oh shit” and laughing and shit)”

No word yet if there’s a new album on the way; “Camp” only dropped in November. — Sami @ SFB

Sentenced on the other crimes, he surely won’t go free / But we find he can’t be guilty of this final felony / Convictions for the forgery and theft are approbated / The sentence for insurance fraud, however, is vacated

We love that people like this exist. (Correction: The initial post had the wrong state. Oops, sorry about that.)  source (viafollow)

Don’t wait to listen to “Camp”. You’ll be out of the cool loop.
Childish Gambino’s “Camp” is streaming already: You should have heard about “rap’s stepfather” by now. Childish Gambino, who you might know better as actor and writer Donald Glover, is releasing his latest album this month. Entitled “Camp,” it’s set to drop on November 15 … but if you’re cool, you can listen to it today. Thanks to NPR’s First Listen, you can listen to the entire album for free. It’s not safe for work due to explicit lyrics, but if we had our way, this would be mandatory listening material in every workplace. Take him seriously, though, as “few hip-hop artists have blurred the boundaries of rap and humor more subversively — or for a more serious end — than Childish Gambino.” source
