Another Reason I Can’tListen to Rap

Paris Hilton – ???Fightin??? Over Me??? feat. Jadakiss & Fat Joe
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Rap is officially over. I know that Paris Hilton was putting out an album. But this? Seriously, this??
When is this ho’s 5 minutes of fame gonna dry up? Damn. I mean, I don’tlike Brittney Spears but at least was famous for having a quasi-decent singing career. This chick is famous for…?
I think I’m gonna boycott Hilton hotels.
Anyway, I’m sure that This reminds me of the Papoose collaboration with that chick Jeanie Ortega. I don’tthink these artists want to do these collabs, but they’re being forced by their record companies and their idea of synergy.
It makes sense. Rap artists want to keep their name up in the suburbs (who generate the most $$$ for them anyway) and rising pop stars want instant street credibility. (Notice I didn’tsay, “street cred.” You have to at least venture into the ‘hood for that.)
Still, isn’tmaking music for the country club set going against the very nature of hip-hop?
