It’s hardly a secret that many low-life pop stars and rappers who push sexually explicit tripe on your young kids won’t have the stuff get anywhere near their precious children. Yes, as we know, they are hypocrites. (One example I’ve already written about: Eminem and his niece.)
The latest is former real-life pimp and drug dealer Snoop Dogg a/k/a Calvin Broadus who continues to pimp that lifestyle on your kids. Yesterday on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” (Does anyone really watch that show?), Mr. Dogg told Ellen that he is very strict with his 8-year-old daughter, Cori:
Tell Ellen how old you have to be before you can have a boyfriend.
The daughter answered:
Hmmm . . . I guess his daughter is the only female in America that isn’t a bitch and a ho. As for your daughters, well . . . he doesn’t give a whit about them as he tries to transform them into that “profession.”
Do as Daddy Says, Not as He Raps.
Then, there’s the latest in hip-hop natural selection. Also yesterday, rapper “Pimp C” a/k/a Chad Butler was found dead at age 33 in his gazillion-dollar hotel room at L.A.’s swanky Mondrian Hotel.
Pimp C made it big with a camoe in rapper Jay-Z’s hit “Big Pimpin'” and also hit the big-time with his 2006 solo album “Pimpalation,” wich reached the top threein the Billboard 200. And then, there’s his hit single with his rap group, UGK, “Intl’ Players Anthem.” Here’s more about Pimp C’s and UGK’s contribution to America:
Over laid-back beats, they laid out incisive details that remain Southern rap mainstays: descriptions of sex and conspicuous consumption, wood-grain steering wheels and triple-beam scales used to weigh drugs.
Butler led off Three 6 Mafia’s 2000 ode to drinking cough syrup to get high, “Sippin’ on Syrup,” with the lines: “I’m trill working the wheel. A pimp, not a simp. Keep the dope fiends higher than the Goodyear blimp. We eat so many shrimp I got iodine poisoning.”
Butler was jailed for three years in 2002; he had plead no contest to aggravated assault for brandishing a gun during an argument with a woman at a mall, then fell behind on required community service. UGK’s rise was derailed, but the “Free Pimp C” slogan caught on and an unauthorized album of Pimp C’s freestyle rhymes was released while he was in prison.
Gee, whatta loss. American Pimp and Playa “culture” will never be the same without this poet laureate.
Who says it’s not conservative to believe in natural selection? Sometimes, what comes around really does go around.
