"Reza Aslan, a religious scholar with a Ph.D. in the sociology of religions from the University of California and author of the new book, “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth,” went on FoxNews.com’s online show Spirited Debate to promote his book only to be prodded about why a Muslim would write a historical book about Jesus." #funny #interviews #ad_hominems #awful #cringeworthy #pub
The stories behind "Lit Like Bic," "Up Like Trump," "Safe Sex Pay Checks," and more. "Swae Lee: “Somebody Come Get Her,” every night. Slim Jimmy: That’s my favorite song of the album. Mike WiLL Made-It. It speaks to all the women when they’re in the club feeling themselves. It’s an uplifting song. Slim Jimmy: We love the other girls, not our exes. Swae Lee: You know how the girl is in the club and she’s like wylin' and she’s having a good time. Slim Jimmy: A girl in the club can never do too much because we’re in the club and we’re wylin' and going ham. I’m getting drunk and high in the club. Swae Lee: I love the girls knocking over drinks in the club, going crazy. I love it. Slim Jimmy: I be looking for the girl that’s trying to leave, to be honest. Swae Lee: [Laughs] It’s like, “If your girl is over here dancing like a stripper, we’re going to come to get her.” So you better come get her. Like, come get your girl she’s dancing like a stripper and we like that. Swae Lee: We’re real simple, take your girl and go. Slim Jimmy: This is a no boyfriend zone. Swae Lee: One time, there was square section, and I think the girl was coming for you, but the dude was right here, and we shook his hand. He liked the music. Sometimes we have to tell the girl like, “You gotta go.” Slim Jimmy: We love you too, but that’s your boyfriend. It gets too awkward for me." _Lol, nice_ #quotes #boss #partying #interviews #getting_hyped #funny #hedonism #music #casual_media #pub
" times, I think, “What would I rather be doing than music?” That’s what you have to ask yourself, if you feel like you need to be somewhere else... But there’s nothing else I want to do more than music. That’s why I stay in the booth. I have a crazy work ethic. I’ll do 20 songs a day. I love music that much. I worked eight years to get where I am. I don’t take anything for granted. I know there are a million and one dudes who are rapping, wishing they were in my shoes." "When I first used Auto-Tune, I never used it to sing. I wasn’t using it the way T-Pain was. I used it to rap because it makes my voice sound grittier. Now everybody wants to rap in Auto-Tune. Future’s not everybody. The people who are taking my style are like my babies. I’ve got a tribe of kids that want to be like me… But I understand why people want to imitate the things I do. They’re dope. It comes naturally to me. My fans can expect greatness. If I wasn’t me, I would want to be me." #music #rekt #interviews #pub
_My boi!_ On Sept. 11, 2007, two rap heavyweights went head to head in a sales battle and changed hip-hop forever. "So needless to say when that exchange was interrupted by my cell—with Kanye West and Plain Pat on the other end, asking where the party was at—things started to look up for the kid. To be clear, this was not a normal happening. I’d known Kanye about five years and written about him a half dozen times at that point—some of which he liked, and some of which he didn’t. We’d just collaborated on his third COMPLEX cover, an issue he’d guest-edited, but we’d never, like, hung out. In fact, at that point, we had barely ever talked on the phone, but I think I’d called him to congratulate him earlier in the day. Maybe he just hit me ’cause my number was in his “recent calls.” Who knows. Either way I was surprised." AND " Like, they both dropped albums in 2005 without drawing a single comparison. In fact, I remember arguing with Kanye, who I was profiling for a VIBE cover story, during a session for “Heard ’Em Say,” at Grandmaster Recorders, L.A., about The Massacre. VIBE had given it a three and I was defending the lukewarm review. Kanye was adamant that, “Any album with ‘In My Hood’ is a four!!!!”" _Interesting, the change. I mean it makes sense. I don't know why people get shat on so much for what they said before. Time and life changes_ #kanye #introspection #$top_reads #interesting #interviews #music #toread #pub
