Hip-Hop, Riches & The Fragile Egos Of Their Community

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/when-rap-gets-presidential-bush-loathes-kanye-clinton-loves-lil-wayne"> The saying goes "Money can't buy you happiness..." When deliberated over its proper context, yes, there's a possibility that every material possession imaginable brought upon by wealth can still leave one's soul feeling hollow. Yet it remains, the majority of us reading said quote can't easily identify with a millionaire's daily gripes and struggles (for argument's sake, we're going to award them the benefit of the doubt). But the average, everyday working-class citizen, most likely can identify with a time where a jolt in monetary support allowed more legroom than usual. A lottery scratch-off, a healthy tax return or just being responsible with your savings---have all brought about that proverbial "happiness" which the infamous quote refers to. While relishing in the splendor of the moment, the general acknowledgement is probably something along the lines of "wish it was like this everyday." For some of our biggest Hip-Hop mainstays of the moment, the pursuit of happiness was chased vigorously in bare feet through rugged terrain but the payoff was rewarded with golden slippers to prance about as they saw fit. Now it seems Kanye West and Rick Ross have forgotten the blistering path which led them to complain about life's luxuries. Feverishly thrusting his fingers into a <a href="http://twitter.com/KanyeWest">Twitter-tirade</a> the other day, an one-on-one sitdown with Matt Lauer on The Today Show prompted Kanye to depict himself a martyr rolled up in a scapegoat blanket for being grilled about <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/when-rap-gets-presidential-bush-loathes-kanye-clinton-loves-lil-wayne">the George Bush ordeal</a>.

Chrisette Michele x Lem Payne – Love Thy Brother Mixtape

By | 7 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/download-rick-ross-feat-drake-and-chrisette-michele-aston-martin-music"> Aside from Trey Songz, mixtapes from R&B artists still seem odd. My preconceived ignorance continues to associate the term with Hip-Hop mainly because there's always a new one popping up by "Lil This Guy" or "Big Rapper Dude" seemingly everyday. Then again, the line between albums, mixtapes and even genres are damn near impossible to decipher these days. Record sales are hard to come by and maintaining a buzz is even harder, so I accept <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/chrisette-michele">Chrisette Michele's</a> Love Thy Brother with open arms.

Officer Ross is so rich, he has different skin tone friends to match each whip.
