"WHO DRESSES COMMON!!!!!!??????"


          

Look, the Outkast/Snowboard/Hobo hibrid thing ain't kickin! Remeinds me of that scene in "The Toy" when Richard Pryor got holes from the piranha. *shakin head* The hats can stay (for the most part anyway) COM! What happened to the good ol' baseball cap from "Can I Borrow"?

In response to Reply # 26


  

          

i was dressin my way bfore i got into hip hop, bfore i heard of okayplayer, bfore, i almost wanna say bfore comm was, from what i hear his style is fairly new (seeing as ppl still have the baseball cap comm {someone who apparently has left the building according to some} fresh in their memories still)
so me, finding someone else express what they wear in a similar way to as i have been and will continue to do.
that's brainwashed?
i guess so man.
you assumed a lot of things to say that, wouldn't you say?
peace

In response to Reply # 28


  

          

one more thing, because i am into his expression of what he wears, does that mean i agree and think everything he wears looks good on him or would on me? hell no.
he'll wear things that i would never, i'll tell you that right now.
but he takes chances and he's tryin new grounds, that's respectable to me, sorry if that means i'm "brainwashed"

i'm sorry, but this just seems like a funny question.

mofo's act like he's 3 or something.
like "if mommy or whoever dresses him takes a couple of days off, i don't know, man, he might be naked on his next album cover!. *lol*

seriously, i think he has the mechanical skills required to dress himself.

and furthermore, does he rhyme like a n-gga who wears baseball caps?

go on.

outta sight, outta mind.

does ashaka take orders? cause I want to look "freaky like Marv Albert"...minus the rug on top of his head!

I want an Iced out Denim Jaket with my name airbrushed in the back. But not with diamonds though, just those plastic pieces that they sell at Kmart and shit. WHAT! I got crazy Ideas...

Back then, "The Artist Formerly

known as "Prince". Tracey Ullman
was entertaining America with
songs, sketches, and crudely drawn
filler material. And Bart was eagerly
awaiting his first day of school."

New York (Reuters) - After much talk of "yapping fools" and "downtown swinging", Brooklyn rap duo M.O.P. have been exposed as closet Afrocentrists in a recent front page story in USA Today.

"I had no idea that Lil Fame hand-sewed kufis," stated producer DJ Premier in an excited tone after hearing the news. "He spends so much time yapping jewels from rappers auditioning for Roc-a-Fella, who knew that he had the time to design a clothing line?"

Apparently, the modern Brooklyn armed robber/rapper has more time than one would think.

"I got the inspiration after I saw Biggie rocking the multicolored sweaters," explained Lil Fame, the shorter member of M.O.P., resting briefly from pistol whipping rapper Lil Zane. "I thought to myself, 'If Biggie can claim hardcore and rock bright colors like THAT, maybe I could design clothes for other hardcore cats."

After being turned down by numerous rappers, many of whom he later robbed, Lil Fame was finally blessed with the opportunity to dress rapper Busta Rhymes.

"We didn't want to spill the beans, so we let everyone think Busta designed his own clothes. But come on, who else but Fame could think of an all red suit with matching red hat?" explained Billy Danze, Lil Fame's partner in M.O.P. "We got the idea from looking at autopsy photos. The bloodstained look, you know?"

Following their successful designs with Busta Rhymes, M.O.P. moved on to dress rapper Andre Benjamin of Outkast and singer Erykah Badu. Finally, word spread to Chicago rapper Common that M.O.P. was behind the bohemian fashion revolution.

"I saw some of the work they did with Q-Tip, the crazy furs and such," explained Common, still sweaty from 20 straight hours of hand clapping in a Jay Dee recording session. "After that, it was over. I had to have it."

"It's a good feeling knowing that the money I make from pawning stolen No Limit medallions can go back into a business which helps the community," stated Lil Fame with a smile.

From downtown swinging to profound stringing, M.O.P. are mashing rhyming and fashion designing all at once.

Thoughtfully yours,

Dont forget that you umust pit the young back male vs. the old black male. You must use the dark skin slaves vs the light skinned slaves and the light skin slaves vs. the dark skin slaves. You must use the female vs. the male, and the male vs. the female. You must have all your caucasian servants and overseers distrust all blacks, but it is necessary that your black slaves trust and depend on us. They must love, respect and trust only us. - Willie Lynch on How to control your slaves

The Negro revolution is controlled by foxy white liberals, by the Government itself. But the Black Revolution is controlled only by God. -Malcolm X/Speech, 1 Dec. 1963, New York City.
