Despite the fact that I'm the only member of a myspace group that I started entitled, "The Chubby Pre-Ejaculators Support Group", I really do love myspace. I mean, not only can you get reacquainted with booty call ass of years past and get them to come over for 7 minutes of unadulterated untamed passion, you can also do fun things like tell a band how much they sound like "constipated turkey's with instruments", and you can harass a specific ex-girlfriend who once left you for a guy who turned out to be a homosexual drug addict by leaving cryptic messages like "How's that working out exactly??!!" But the one thing that I love the most about myspace is how you can connect with artists that you respect immensely, especially artists who have been out of the limelight for a few years.
My "Find of the Week" is Sha-Rock of the legendary group "Funky Four plus One".(members include Keith Keith, Sha Rock, KK Rockwell , Rahiem ,Jazzy Jeff, and , Lil' Rodney Cee later on.) Listen, I know that people want to pull "Blondie" out of their ass whenever they get the opportunity to, but Sha-Rock was the first legitimate female MC that I ever heard, a woman that I feel was years ahead of her time. I think that before a female rapper is allowed to sign her record contract nowadays she should be forced to recite Sha-Rock's verse on "That's the Joint" and "Do you wanna rock" verbatim. Funky four plus one was formed in 1979, was obviously the first crew to have a female member, and was the first rap act to perform on Saturday Night Live. In this age of incompetent journalism where sub-par scribes try to get you to like the "Dipset" or have the nerve to put a couple of dead guys ahead of the pure lyricism of Rakim, Sha-Rock is definitely a legend who deserves the ultimate respect. Oh, by the way, she was my myspace friend before she was yours!!
