Kid Fury's Blog: My Letter To Kreayshawn

Dear Kreayshawn,

We should probably start this off with a discussion of your name. I’m not sure if your rap moniker is supposed to be some sort of ghetto play on the word “creation”, or if you just have a fascination with names that make substitute teachers sweat. However, I’m going to call you Julie. I know your birth name is Natassia, but you look like a Julie to me.

Anyway, I thought you should know that I’ve been quietly watching you cat-daddy your fifteen minutes away. You’re a very intriguing little character and I decided to observe you rummaging through hip-hop before I gave my honest opinion.

Truthfully, I think you’re cute...in a Salt-N-Pepa meets Casey Anthony sort of way. You have this Teen Vogue, trailer trash, hipster style about you and I think it’s adorable. You also direct music videos and have your own Caucasian clique, White Girl Mob, to help you write rhymes and egg houses or whatever the fuck y’all do.
That’s all well and good, but here’s the thing: you can’t rap, girl. You can’t. You’re horrible. You’re an utter musical disgrace. Stop.

I don’t believe you as a rapper. If you wanted to be a graffiti artist, a photographer, or a busser at Buffalo Wild Wings, I’d totally see that vision and support you. Rap music is not your tea. You seem like a young lady who enjoys government cheese and marijuana, and perhaps that led you to pursue a career in hip-hop out of sheer boredom and misplaced confidence. No, sis. Wrong move.

In terms of your friend V-Nasty and her comfort with using the word “nigga”, it doesn’t really offend me. I understand that some white babies are born into environments where that word is used in a friendly manner and there are no parents to shut them the hell up. However, I suggest you advise Ms. Nasty to cut it out, because there are Negroes who don’t give a sliver of a fuck and they will stomp all possible throats in.

Again, I enjoy your ratchet Teen Nick fashion and total disregard for anybody else’s feelings, but you ought to start looking into other careers. Maybe you could direct the Amber Rose/Wiz Latifah sex tape. Anything, but music.

Love, Kid Fury

P.S. Basic bitches don’t wear Gucci, Louis, Fendi, or Prada. They wear Baby Phat and Applebottoms.

The veteran rapper, born Antwan Patton, announced the news via Instagram. The studio is located in the Lakewood Heights neighborhood. The studio once served as the hub for production crew Organized Noize, creating the beats for some of OutKast’s biggest hits.

The Dungeon also served as a beacon of creativity for the group. In addition to OutKast recording their 1994 debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, they also recorded 1996’s ATLiens and 1998’s Aquemini at The Dungeon.

In buying The Dungeon, Big Boi is securing an important piece of hip-hop history, especially considering how popular Atlanta has become in the entertainment industry. However, this wasn't always the case. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he admits that Atlanta wasn't always respected in creative circles like it is now.

“When we first started, it wasn’t cool to be from Atlanta,” he said. “Now Atlanta is the place to be with music, film, and television. To have people excited about the city and the culture and the lifestyle, I’m very proud of that. We’re the pioneers of it, and we’re still at the forefront of what’s happening. There’s plenty of people over the years, hundreds if not thousands like, ‘[1994 LP] Southernplayalistic … made me move to Atlanta.’ There’s no greater place in the world to be but A-Town.”

Meek Mill Once Used Soulja Boy's "Kiss Me Thru The Phone" Lyrics In Love Letters From Jail

Who knew Soulja Boy’s ubiquitous 2008 hit “Kiss Me Thru The Phone” once served as a romantic catalyst for Meek Mill? The Philadelphia rapper recently admitted on Twitter that while he was incarcerated in his youth, he used the lyrics to Soulja Boy’s schmaltzy love note within letters and phone calls to girls.

Amid Meek’s cheeky co-sign, Soulja Boy has been one of the Internet’s favorite topics of discussion since his latest interview on The Breakfast Club. The 28-year-old rapper spoke about his legacy in hip-hop and why he deserves more credit than he’s been given for his influence. He also had some choice words for Kanye West when he said the latter is old and "lame."

"I'm younger than you," he began. "I'm flyer than you, ni**a. Whatever. You crying on Twitter every week about Drake? You gotta stop that sh*t, bro. You look lame, bro. You look cap, bro...You up here supporting Trump and sh*t, bro. You supporting Trump? What the f**k wrong with you, bro? That sh*t's not right."

Other artists in the industry also chimed in on the situation:
