One of my media brethren Charlamagne Tha God is gearing up for the release of his new musical project South Crack The Album and has sent me over a grip of funny ass T-shirts to give away to the SOHH.com readers. Check em out.
As you can see these shirts are sure to draw a lot of attention. Charlamagne has hooked me up with more than enough to hook you up with one. He teamed up with Povertysthreads for the fly design. But before you can get your own shirt you got to answer a few questions.
Please note I only have size Large. I know, I know, but it is what it is.
1. Who Does Charlamgne work with in NYC?
2. Name two featured guests on T.I.'s new album Paper Trail?
3.What were the two things Gyant was NOT allowed to ask Jennifer Hudson when they got together to do an interview this past week?
Send in ya answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you include your mailing address. I got to know where to send them.
Oh and make sure you cop Charlamagne's new album when it hits stores on August 19th.
But Let's Move On....
Monica's new reality show aired on Peachtree TV last night and y'all already know I got some ish to say about it. I'm gonna say what all y'all thinking SOHH let's get into it.
Monica: The Single was at first advertised as a coming of age reality show giving the fans an insight into the life of the some what reclusive soul singer as she goes through the motions of creating a new album while also juggling motherhood and dating a rapper. But after watching the reality show I feel bamboozled! First off this ain't Monica's television show this project belongs to B.Cox.
There I was perched in front of the television about to meet the chief [read between the lines] when I suddenly realized exactly what I was watching. And while I admit that I was disappointed that we won't be able to get that birds eyes view of Monica and Rocko's life for a few weeks there were other issues that I had about the show that must be expressed
The script: Contrary to popular belief reality television isn't as real as producers would like you to believe. There are a lot of scripted incidents that take place and that were extremely evident while watching the show.
From the rolling of B.Cox eyes as Monica chastised him demanding that he create her a great song. To the urgent need to get Rocko his jewelry for his HOT 107.9 Bash performance. Now y'all already know that I was there that night and I remember running into Monica. I even got a picture with her and I do not recall a Monica/Rocko uproar developing backstage at all.
The balleralert.com plug: I mean hell why couldn't y'all shout out SOHH.com, Adonis? Did y'all know that Kenny Burns sister runs Balleralert? Is that a good look, Kenny?
Monica's reckless driving skills: Did anyone realize that Monica was caught on camera driving her SUV trying to text on her Sidekick while Lil Rock sat in the backseat? Call me an ass, but I hate to see people on their phones while they operate motor vehicles ESPECIALLY while their children look on.
And I know y'all saw one of music's most beautiful voices drive up on the sidewalk trying to get to Phillps Arena. That was not a good look. Y'all know I'm telling the truth.
All in all the show was interesting. I really wish that we would've had the chance to really try and get a better feel for who Monica "the woman" is. But look, at the end of the day Monica seems to be in much happier place and if she likes it then I love it.
Maybe we'll get the chance to see her and Rocko show that hood love on a BET reality show one day.
Sidebar, how dope does that song sound? That's the Monica I've been waiting for.
