THERE GOES A YOUNG MONEY MINDED MOTHEA-FU*KA

Young Money Cash Money is getting money, but they aren't getting mine. Don't get me wrong, I will bob me head to some Nicki, Drake and Lil Wayne. On  the flip side though, I cant relate to any of them. The only one of the three that seemed to have some sense WAS Drake, but Im sure he's totally corrupted now. Watching the Sucka Free Count Down Awards tonight on MTV 2, shed light on the impact of YMCMB on today's culture. Many of you may notice the ever growing trend of tattoos all over the body not excluding the face, colored wigs, and skinny jeans on men.  They've adopting the Young Money, Cash Money attitude. Today's generation is lacking some decent visual representation of "what to look like" and "who you can aspire to become".   Hey, "get money", but these folks need a good spanking for taking this "Im rich BITCH" attitude too  far. How many of y'all have friends or family, that takes looking like popular pop stars (yea I said POP) to the next level.?

  3. I complete agree with you it is so crazy how we support music that does not benefit us and a culture or society. My generation need to understand that its just entertainment and its not something to aspire to be. Im 23years old and I constantly have to catch myself when I jam to these type of music. Its hard to because the beats are crazy then you listen to the music and are like what the (beep)!! For example the Drake and The weekend song "loving the crew" I was shake my butt until I realize he calling me a groupie......a hoe. :( Sometimes I laugh cuz thats all I can do be they will never get my money.

  4. I agree with Kathy Dor..the beats are too catchy..makes you forget what the hell they are singing about...Thats until I have my kids in the car and my senses are fine tuned and I'm reminded they just don't make clean music anymore. And as far as what they wear..wowzers! I told my daughter she'd better not ever bring a boy home to meet me wearing skinny jeans!

  5. I believe they are talking about their experiences with different people they encounter. I believe in most of their lyrics and any oher lyrics artist give out someone can relate. And yes I do agree some of it is bull shyt. Lol that's why I just started actually really listening to rap about 2yrs ago. And yes some of that shyt is hilarious. Lol

  6. Yea, I cn have an ole school mentality, and some of the things that are popular now, I can get with. Make me feel old, especially when my daughter tells me that Im not cool lol. They think men in skinny jeans is attractive. I wonder what a teenager would say

  7. I'm not knocking them really. Being young is the time to be rebellious. We all had our ridiculous lack of common sense and morale phases. Its just growing older and still thinking the same way is what's sad.

    I'm not a die hard fan of thiers, I dont like tattoos, male skinnies, or bright wigs. When I listen to thier lyrics, my head some times hurts, so I just bob my noggin to the beat.

  8. Like I always say, to each his/her own, but I think most of the time the persona their putting out there is for the record sales and not who they really are behind closed doors. As far as tattoos, I think some of these celebrities have lost their minds... When Pink Friday came out, I purchased it, and I can say that I truly LOVE IT! Her album was based on her life experiences and where she has come from and where she is going. I love her lyrics. And lets face it, groupies are like hoes! There's a difference between a fan and a groupie.. I don't know, these are just my feelings and thoughts. Male's in skinny jeans wouldn't bother me if my daughter brought one home.. I think he can still be presentable. My opinion1

  9. I dont listen to current music because it just isnt positive for me. I just turned 25 and Ive stopped clubbing and listening to music channels n whatever else is connected because the whole vibe has changed, just in the last 5 years so I can imagine how it has changed in the past 10 - 15 years.
    Some like to think it doesnt influence people, but I am hard pressed to find a guy my age that doesnt think all girls in the club are hoes or find girls who dont think they have to wear their underwear as an outfit to get some love.
    Just not feeling it man.. . . . . . and never understood skinny jeans on a guy. Especially with those boots they tuck in them noooooooooooo!!!

  10. Me and my husband were just talking about this the other day. I just don't know how it can be cool to flat out copy another person's style, like these guys who are so obviously emulating Lil' Wayne. He is an entertainer so he can look a d*mn fool without actually looking a d*amn fool if that makes any sense. But when you see guys walking around in what looks like their toddler sister's tights, with their entire butt (in tight draws no less) on display, and fake locs (with fake hair), it makes me want to quote the late Bernie Mac, "Be yourself! If people don't like you, F*#@ em!", anyway, rant over.

  11. I'm not a big supporter of most hip hop artists like Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, etc because I don't relate either, they got all this money..they don't need mine then! Drake has talent, I dig some of his stuff but I can't say I feel the urge to play it. If I hear it, I hear it.

    On the fashions, they kinda took the skinny jeans (on guys) from the punk culture, I don't have a problem with that per se but it should be done right and it very rarely is. I've never been into blond wigs and tattoos all over the face..that's just tacky looking to me!
