May 21st footage coming up. That’s the daywe went into the studio for the first time. That was a great day. Today we’re in the studio en masse, brass section, Enveh, the whole kaboodle. Woo hoo!
Hmm. So, yeah. Charles Hamilton getting punched in the face.
Either that, or Dookie’s a big mean douche, the antithesis of the pro-female, “God is a woman” Isis-worshipper he’d been claiming to be.
See, on one side, you have the woman in question, Ms Briana Latrise, Mary J. Blige’s step-daughter, jobing music-industry inductee, poetess, photographer, heart-on-sleeve blogger. A cursory glance at her blog will reveal a lot of intimate looking photos of her and Dookie, statements like, “I love him. As much as I want to kill him… lol,” and poems like the following:
I should have left him alone
Now I’m just pregnant and poor, Homeless, hurt and more
He’s happy on his high horse, searching for his next “whore”.
Which suggests that that line he kicked in that freestyle about him “hitting it raw” and her having to “get an abor…” were based in fact. Which is a CRAZY HARSH thing to put in a public freestyle that’s being filmed.
And on the other side, you have the FACT that Charles Hamilton has been signed to Interscope for a year, and has yet to be given a release date, despite releasing a ridonculous amount of mixtapes, his first single, etc. If I know Jimmy I and co (and guess what? I do!) they’ll have told Duke he needs to get some heat on him before they can set a date. Now, Charles has tried the beef thing – with fellow Interscoper Soulja Boy, amongst others – and that didn’t really turn out too well. He tried the mixtape thing, but kind of over saturated that one. he tried being some kind of Web 2.0 king, but he’s too grimy, and relies too heavily on dodgy fan-made graphics and bad web-templates to pull that one off. So what’s dude gonna do when letting the music speak for itself is no longer an option?
Film himself getting punched in the face by a girl?
I mean, it worked – he was the number 2 trending topic on Twitter yesterday.
But is all publicity good publicity?
Because after this, he’s looking bad (read “fag”) in the eyes of the No Homo Brigade, and he’s looking like the typical arrogant misogynist to everyone else.
Rah though, that Windows Media Player joint was tight. And I still bump R Kelly AND Gary Glitter (you know my stance on seperating the art from the artist already, right?), so if dude comes with hot music, I’m gonna play it regardless.
Still. He probably wants to steer clear of Mary J Blige. I wouldn’t fuck with her. Damn.
