When I first started blogging, what seems like a million years ago, I just saw this as a beneficial vehicle for me to express myself, only slowing down momentarily to take a watery shit on bloggers of lesser skill that I have issues with and your garden variety wack MC. Sure I always felt like it would be cool to get paid to write, there's no denying that. But based on all the hapless saps that I've seen over the past couple of years get paid for what either seems to be rather subpar scribblings from wanna-be wordsmith's who I wouldn't trust to complete a coherent sentence, or people who sold their already worthless souls just so they could say how great an MC Lil Wayne is, I was content to die without ever earning a cent for my point of view.(O.C's words ring in my head, "I'd rather be broke and have a whole lot of respect!")
So you could understand my hesitation when I was approached with a few writing opportunities, most notably by Vibe magazine to blog on their website. I wanted to be the asshole, you know, talk about how my blog was the Internet equivalent to a "grass roots organization" that wouldn't be tainted by "big business", but all my machismo was tamed by a very nice woman named Julianne. I wanted to wax poetic about how they couldn't afford me, how my writings will stand the test of time on some "archaeologists will dig up my writings 500 years from now and proceed to worship and masturbate to them with glee" kind of shit, but they offered me enough weed and whore money to soothe this savage pre-ejaculator. Lastly, I was prepared to turn them down flat because I felt like they would handcuff a brother creatively and language-wise, but unbelievably my preconceived notions were once again thwarted since the good people at Vibe are giving me carte blanc to do whatever the fuck I want.
So, if you haven't gotten your fill of me over here(My ex's complained that I didn't "fill" them at all), check me out here because that's where I will also be spreading my message of Hip Hop and pre-ejaculation.(Even though I'm not fully integrated into the system yet. I.T, get on your fucking job yo!!)
