“Highed Up” – Review Of Curren$y’s Pilot Talk II

By | 78 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/review-of-currensy-pilot-talk"> Writers are taught from a very early stage that the best subject material always involves the author's expertise. It is not just a means of formulating ideas to prevent the author from stepping too far out of his/her comfort zone, but it allows for the best ideas to sprout and grow without hindrance. Not surprisingly, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/currensy">Curren$y</a> takes this same maxim to heart, never letting his favorite topics venture too far from the truth.

Soulja Boy Tell’Em Feat. Lil B – “30 Thousand, 100 Million” Video

By | 23 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/soulja-boy-feat-waka-flock-flame-and-lil-b-all-i-know"> Word around town is Soulja Boy and Lil B can't count worth a damn. At least, that's the perception they're giving on their latest mashup which implores "Pretty Boy Swag's" bassline with some horrible algebra. Hey kids, don't follow these dopes; thirty thousand, one hundred million is not a real number. For educational purposes, let's write it out: 30,000.100,000,000 Just a fair warning. If you put that on your next math quiz, your teacher is liable to smack you. These guys don't need to know how to add anyway. The money will pile up to uncountable amounts because you're going to <a href="http://www.amazon.com/DeAndre-Way-Deluxe-Version-Explicit/dp/B004BTGZ6Y/ref=sr_shvl_album_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1290876622&sr=301-1">buy three copies</a> of The Deandre Way, right.

And On The 8th Day, God Created Cinnabon Cereal

By | 33 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=150786"> I've been a pretty open book during my nearly three years here at TSS. I've shared my personal hopes, dreams, fears and desires with you all, sometimes treating this platform as my personal journal. One thing I've never told you all is my undying love affair with cinnamon rolls. I've been known to crack open a Pillsbury can and eat like three cinnamon rolls in one sitting. I've also nearly been asked to leave Ann Sathers restaurant (Chicago stand up) after having a <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nNhOH4Y0bI">When Harry Met Sally</a> moment after having their French Toast Fantasy - two cinnamon rolls dipped in french toast batter.

Trey Songz and Chris Brown are cool in my book and not because we all hail from the same state. There was a reason C.B.'s "No Bullshit" <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/the-2010-intermission-75-great-songs-weve-enjoyed-so-far">made TSS' favorite tracks</a> of the halfway point of 2010 and why Trey's <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/06/trey-songz-anticipation-mixtape">Anticipation</a> was better than a lot of R&B projects since then.
