Who would have thought that a soulless channel like B.E.T, one that peddles the worst Hip Hop imaginable and lets the world know how classless Keisha Cole's posse is, would provoke any thought at all. But the other day as I was flipping channels and happened to land on B.E.T, Shareefa's video for the song "I need a Boss" was on. You would think by the title that the song was possibly about a misguided prostitute, frustrated at her inability to get "dates" on her own, longing for the guidance and stability of a pimp. But within moments I realized that this vapid pop song was about something that I Loathe worst than chicks who want to cuddle after sex, and that is a song about "Thugs". You know the routine, songs about guys that the singer/rapper thinks are tough, with an accompanying video where there are a handful of "Just add water thugs" ice grilling the camera continuously. I love MC Lyte but I hate "Roughneck" with a passion, and I have no beef with Destiny's Child but that "Soldier" song makes me want to punch the first guy I see with a Doo Rag on. I guess these songs are so cringeworthy to me because I'd bet my sticky Rosario Dawson picture collection that any dude who calls themselves a "Thug" would probably piss himself in a real confrontation, or if they do muster up the courage to fight you'd find out in no time that their jaw was made of glass.
Matter of fact beware of anyone who classifies themselves as a "rocker" and any girl who claims that she's "sexy" by the way.(Thats for people beside yourself to decide, jackasses!)
