With some members of Steelers Nation on staff at HipHopDX, it’s not a happy morning. However, salute to the Green Bay Packers and the cheese-heads out there. We found some Internet goodies that cheered us up:
The Complex click compiled a nice list of embarrassing Hip Hop-related photos. From Joe Budden’s Nissan-rolling days (not that we don’t push Nissan too), to DJ Quik’s worst album’s cover to some knock outs, cross-dressers and more. This is a great time-kill that covers a lot of culture.
The New York Times took a close look at “making it rain” with the Super Bowl weekend popping off. Apparently Hines Wards has some Pac Man tendencies. This is just interesting reading, that will explain the cultural phenomenon endorsed by Fat Joe and Lil Wayne to your parents.
In the line of Nate Dogg, Mary J Blige, Rihanna, Skylar Grey appears to be this year’s Hip Hop feature go-to. A lot of that probably has to do with Alex da Kid, who’s working with the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Dr. Dre and Eminem. Complex did their research on Skylar, and her story is an interesting one. If you want, check out her solo work on DX here. We’re trying to get that interview though, what’s up?
This is cool, but we like Michelle Trachtenberg more.
