I dunnoooo I think you already know that “White is beautiful” don’t you?
Or will it shatter your beauty if I recognize mine?

Except for the part where Wayne was in the gifted program in elementary school, and only earned his GED instead of a High School diploma because he’s been working consistently in the music industry since he was fourteen. Still, he managed to get accepted at the University of Houston, where he earned high grades until his work schedule became too much to attend the classes, so he switched to University of Phoenix and took Psychology classes online.
I know what “Working at McDonalds” means here. It means you think he’s stupid or untalented. That’s a whole other can of worms I won’t even get into. I’m guessing your opinion that he should be “working at McDonalds” has a lot to do with his image. Whether you think he’s thuggish or that he looks like one of the gremlins after they got wet, it seems as if you, original poster, think he can’t be both that and someone who is intelligent and worthy of the level of notoriety he has reached.
Lets be real, if he wasn’t immersed in a highly lucrative career since his early teens, he probably would have funneled his brain power and creative energy into something else. Maybe he would have started out at McDonalds, slinging fries and dealing with nasty people like you who think that makes him beneath you. Or maybe he would have finished college and found a job at McDonald’s that would lead to running a boardroom or creating new flavor combinations, all while waiting for just the right moment to open his own joint.
But why would you bother thinking at all, when your knee jerk reaction is to use a successful black man as a punchline?
Do you remember those boys that go to the ‘hood’ and mess with people all for the sake of a “prank”? Well, they went to a radio station for an interview and the hosts there called them out on their racist shit and it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Check this video out.
This is the first time in a long time that I rocked with Hot 97 on something. Good for them.
I LOVE THIS
It’s been almost a year since this shit dropped. I thought “Control” was going to wake rappers up. I thought it was going to usher in a whole new era of dudes coming with better verses, better songs, more meaningful content. Instead, eleven months later, we’re still getting the same old watered down bullshit about women, clubs, drinks and money. It is what it is, I guess.
It’s time for Kendrick to drop that second album though. N’s is waiting.
BEEN WAITING. Ravenous.
