This is gonna sound shallow, but what happened to the guy? He used to be so.....thin?
Now he's scaring me.

Still, excellent emcee.

"“Girls with honey dripping from your ass/ Arms with the funk of smoking grass/ You notice me down the block, I’m that good/ So do your people in your neighborhood/ The way you walk, your period is yummy/ The diamonds in my mouth I eat are gummy.” "

WOO-AH! It's as hardcore as Lil Kim 'Don't want d*ck tonight, eat my p**sy right'.

I'm not quite sure his music will live up to my expectations tho', because i tend to think the future of HH is organic, instrumental, and not over produced and computerized.

The history of our times calls to mind those Walt Disney characters who rush madly over the edge of a cliff without seeing it, so that the power of their imagination keeps them suspended in mid-air; but as soon as they look down and see where they are, they fall.

He had better enjoy his publicly funded midair suspension while he can.......

Isn't he just 100% self-indulgent?

Please tell me more about this, that's beautiful.

Dirty does look fat though. Dirty is a party. He's the guy at a club or party that usually a dance floor forms a circle for even though he isn't dancing that good. He's got so much character that people can only give him room. He isn't a great emcee but he has his own style. I know whenver I play ODB records a clubs people always go nuts.

Whatever happened to calling himself "Big Baby Jesus"? Was that just before "Dirt McGirt"?

I hate feeling so hopelessly out of the loop.
