The biggest Sunday of the year has come and gone, leaving us football fans in the dark for another 7 months.  If you’re like me, your team wasn’t playing in the game (saving my dirty birds for next season), so it didn’t really matter too much who won.  While both teams put up a great fight, only one team could be crowned NFL Champions.  There was a lot of action in this year’s game, which resulted in PLENTY of highlights.  The following videos, will give you my top 3 highlights of the night. In no particular order, here we go………………………..

1) OPTIMUS PRIME IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!! 07/01/2011

2) THOR FINALLY ARRIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!! 05/06/2011

3) Captain America: The First Avenger !!!!! 07/22/2011

And there you have it people!! The top 3 highlights of Superbowl XLV!!! I know you weren’t expecting highlights from the actual game………….damn the game!!! I told you my Atlanta Falcons weren’t playing.  I don’t give a damn about Green Bay or Pittsburgh!!! This Superbowl was all about The Autobots and The Avengers.  I’ll be there at midnight for every movie, too. See you in the ticket line. PEACE!!!

Dear family, friends, and blog readers

It’s been about mid December since I last blogged about anything. However, since my last blog, I’ve been pretty busy with this music thing. I’ve recorded a lot of music, did a couple of videos, radio and magazine interviews, and a show or two………….basically, I’ve been extremely focused. In the midst of doing this music stuff, I’ve totally abandoned The Barnett Report. Just to let you know, I’m back on it. It’s 2011!!! Back to blogging!!! The Barnett Report is back in full swing and nothing will change……….. my balls are still bigger than yours.

Sincerely yours

Christopher F. Barnett II

Lil B of The Pack Releases Video for 'Pretty Boy'

I was introduced to Lil’ B’s music by a fellow artist. She  told me about a song he has in which he says, ‘Hoes on my dick cause I look like Jesus.’.  I’m not kidding at all………..those are his exact words.  Whatever you’re thinking right now…….add a few four letter words and those are my thoughts exactly.  Today on Twitter, a trending topic was #FavoriteLilBQuotes. This was CRAZY!!!!! Just to give you a few quotes, there were;

“Then I park my car, then I fuck yo bitch, eat that wonton soup…”

“Fuck a bitch in the face like a boss, like a dad, like I’m Rad, like I’m Brad, like I’m Chad”

“Bitches suck my dick cause my chain look like lighting”

“Bitch I look like Ben and Jerry’s

This is not hip-hop. This isn’t even music.  To call this retarded would be giving him more credit than he deserves, but, I’m not buying the fact that he’s actually this stupid. Here’s my Based Theory.

These lyrics are dumb, stupid, ignorant, etc. Whatever you want to call it. Not only are they stupid, but this is a stupid we’ve never heard before. This is groundbreaking stupidity. To be successful in the music biz, though, don’t you have to do or say something that hasn’t been done or said before? Let’s think about it. Before Lil B, what rapper ever said anything this mindless before? Granted we’ve had rappers that raise the bar of wack, but we’ve never had a Lil B. We’ve seen somebody with Autism get behind the mic, but we haven’t seen Lil B. We heard people rape women, kill other people,  burn people alive, and even kill kids on a record…..BUT we’ve never heard a Lil B. He wants money, he wants clothes, cars, girls, a record deal, chains, and everything else that comes with the package. He knows that in order to obtain that, he has to stand out. Is he not standing out right now? He has Youtube talking, Twitter, blog sites, one of my favorite sneaker forums, and other internet outlets thanking the ‘Based God’.

This dude knows exactly what he’s doing and it’s working for him. He’s a prime example of how to create an image and use it to your benefit. I dont believe for one minute that behind Youtube, Twitter, blog sites, and anywhere else, he’s the same person. No way at all. It’s all a hustle and this dude is working his hustle to the fullest right now.  I do not support Lil B, I do not support his music, and I do not support dumbing yourself down to see a check!! I do, however, respect a man’s hustle and nobody can knock that.

UPDATE 02/04/2011

 

As much as I hate to admit this, since this post, I’ve continued to watch videos from this dude and I can’t help but to laugh. This shit is actually pretty hilarious. I can see why people flock to this guy. I’m not listening because his lyrics are amazing, I’m listening because those stupid lines make me laugh every time. Yea…………..I’ve been watching the videos………….sue me.

While I was listening to Kanye’s new album, getting prepared to give my review, I received a tweet from my home girl (follow her here). She was watching VH1’s 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs Countdown and she wanted my, and a few others, opinion of our top 10 hip-hop tracks of all time. I knew that this was a question I had to sit on before I give an answer. Of all time?! ALL TIME?? Okay. Let me think……………………content……………….delivery…………………….beat……………………impact………………hmmm……….in no particular order…………..

Whodini – Friends

  • Everybody asks “How many of us have them?” It was/is real talk that resonated back then and still holds plenty truth today.

Ice Cube – Today Was A Good Day

  • This is just a legendary track. To me, there is not one flaw in this record what so ever. He took you through his whole day from breakfast ( no hog) to 2 am the next morning when he got the Fat Burger and didn’t miss a step. No to mention the classic quote, ‘ Shake ‘em up, shake ‘em up, shake ‘em up, shake ‘em.)

Wu-Tang Clan – C.R.E.A.M.

  • I really don’t think I need to go too deep into why this track is on my list. Every since they hit the scene it’s been a worldwide fact that Cash Rules Everything Around Me. Dolla dolla bill yaaaaa’lll.

Slick Rick – Children’s Story

  • This is story telling at its finest from the greatest story teller of all time. I don’t think there was ever a more vivid picture in hip-hop than the picture painted by The Grand Wizard.  “Me and you, Todd, we’re gonna make some cash…………”

Notorious B.I.G. – Big Poppa

  • This track was player to the fullest. His delivery on this was perfect. It was so cool, so laid back, so pimp type. The Isley Brother’s sample never sounded so good either. You know it’s classic when more than a decade later, people still got their hands in the air, if they’re a true player.

Snoop Dogg – Gin and Juice

  • The impact of this record was and still is crazy. Dre went nuts on the beat and Snoop went in with the classic lines. “They aint leaving till 6 in the moooo’nen.” “With my mind on my money and my money on my mind.”  Not to mention that this song still goes!!! Dope record!!

Run DMC – Sucka MC’s

  • If hip-hop was a TV sitcom, this would be the theme song. I absolutely love the opening drum hits and then when Run comes in with “Two years ago a friend of mine asked me to say some emcee rhymes……” That shit is dope!!!!  I really don’t think I need to go in too deep about this song. The Kings of Rock!!!!

Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg – Nothing But A G Thang

  • Do you need an explanation for this record? I don’t think so. 1, 2, 3 and to the Fo.

Eminem – Stan

  • I might catch flack for this but put this in this perspective;  The song was nuts!!! The idea is one of a kind. Eminem’s lyrics are untouchable. Lastly, how many times have you called somebody a ‘Stan’ since this record? Talk about impact……….

NWA – Fuck Tha Police

  • At the time of this record’s release, you had to have balls of steel to say these three words in public.  So it set America back when a group of young black kids said this. Not only said it, but said it on a record!! Not only said it on a record, but they were RAPPING!!! IMPACT? You want IMPACT?! These words still ring in the hearts of millions of people today. Relevant in 1988 and still VERY MUCH relevant today.

Okay there it is. My top 10 hip-hop songs of all time. Again this is just my opinion so no need to throw stones. I thought about this for a while and this is what I came up with. Tell me what you think but don’t fucking debate me…….. make your own list.  Shout to everybody out there trying to keep hip-hop healthy.

Straight up…………… THIS IS THE WORST KANYE WEST ALBUM IN HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!

I said this line to get all the Kanye fans going.  HAHAHA!!! Get your heart rate down, okay.  I’m only joking.  Seriously, I believe that this album ranks as Kanye’s 2nd best album; Graduation > MBDTF > College Drop Out >Late Registration >808’s.

I’ve read blogs saying that this is a perfect album, classic album, etc. I don’t agree with that at all. I do however believe that this is one of the best albums of 2010. Track by track, the flow of the album is great. The album is full of highlights. I , honestly, didn’t stop rocking and nodding my head until I got to ‘Hell of a Life’. The track didn’t work for me. I wasn’t too impressed with the Ozzy Osborn melody for the chorus on this track. ‘Lost in the World’ was the same way. You see where I ranked 808’s in Kanye’s album heiracy, so this track took me back to a Kanye I don’t particularly miss.

As I said before, this album is filled with highlights though. The opening track, ‘Dark Fantasy’, was nothing less than amazing. ‘Gorgeous’ was genius as well. There’s a certain chemistry with Kanye West and Kid Cudi that comes through on songs and it works to perfection in my opinion. I probably played ‘All of the Lights’  about 3 or 4 times before I moved on to the next song. What was amazing to me, was the fact that a few of these songs were already previewed during Kanye’s ‘Good Friday’ and I wasn’t too impressed by them. When these exact same songs were played within the flow of this cd, it was dope as hell. This is weird I know but hey…….* #kanyeshrug * .  Another highlight of the album is ‘Blame Game’. This is obviously Kanye’s vent about Amber Rose.  I was told that this track was the ‘Ether of Amber Rose’. I don’t think Kanye went that hard at her but I believe that if he did, he would’ve took this track over the top.

All in all, like I stated before, My Beautiful, Dark, Twisted Fantasy is a great way to let the world know that you’re back. Kanye West delivers on this album. Do I think it’s a classic album? Does it rank among the classics in hip-hop? Not in my opinion. Although, if I was a huge, huge fan of Kanye, this album would definitely be a musical dream come true. My final rating for this album is definitely 4.5/5.  Kanye West is back, so expect more new wanna-be rappers to come out of nowhere and continue to imitate a musical genius.

Wifey is back at it with her blogs. She’s going in and has a lot of things in the works. I’m very proud to say that I’ve influenced her, though. Recently, we had a discussion about cheating. I’d think that by now she knows that unless  Meagan Good or Nia Long decides to use my number again, she has nothing to worry about. She still wants to bring it up though. Whatever. So this last time, I made this comment; “…… women won’t have to worry about their men cheating if they are taking care of business.  Nine times out a ten, his mistress can teach you something”. This obviously lit a fire. Following this, she asked me to write about it, so this is my piece;

 

Whether you want to admit it or not, that saying is 10000% true.  In my opinion, the only way to avoid that other woman is just to do what he asks you to do. As long as he’s willing to fulfill your needs and fantasies, I don’t see a problem with it. If you’re one of those stubborn women that refuse, then chances are that he has a woman on the side that doesn’t have a problem role playing, dressing up, or whatever it is he’s asking you to do. Don’t be mad at him, or her, honestly it’s your fault. You want to know what I would recommend?  What I would recommend doing, take notes from his mistress.  Yes, seriously……take notes. The mistress could suggest a few things that’ll add a firework show to your relationship that you can’t even imagine. Maybe a few things such as:

Role Play – Sometimes we men (at least I have)  dream about getting pulled over by a sexy female cop and getting out of a ticket, or staying after class for some extra credit, etc. There’s nothing wrong with it. It can actually be fun if you get rid of the ‘I’m too good for that’ attitude.   Be that cop, or that teacher for one night and see where it gets you!!!

Get Rid of Those Granny Panties – We don’t want to see that. We grew up wearing tighty whities and granny panties aren’t doing anything except taking us back to our childhood–not where we want to be when it’s time to get it going.  Women know how easily we get excited. Give us something exciting to look at.

Get Those Sexy Underwear and Walk Around Them – This goes back to what I said in the last paragraph. Eye candy is always great! It’s even better because we get to watch you walk that walk that turns us on, hips switching from side to side.

Send Him Naughty Text Messages and Pics – This will keep his mind on you all day.  Things gets bored as hell in that office all day.  Sending him a sexy text message to let him know what to expect after work would put a huge smile on his face! So will sending him a picture of what’s waiting for him after work. On that same note, don’t refrain from continuing any conversation that your text message may start. There’s no point of starting something you’re not willing to finish.

Give Head – Nothing irritates him more than hearing “I don’t feel like it!!” There’s no reason not to. A mistress has NO PROBLEM DOING IT!!! At home, in the kitchen, in the car, at the movies, in the changing room, it doesn’t matter. Just do it!!

Not to say I have a mistress that does this for me–but even if I did–what me and the nanny does is nobody’s business!!!! Anyway ladies, you have 2 options; either keep him happy or learn from your man’s mistress.

Needless to say, she’s not feeling it at all. She did say I have some valid points, but………..it’s on. This discussion will be in the form of a mini-blog-series. I’ve said my piece (pt. 1), she’ll say hers (pt. 2), and for part 3………………..stay tuned.  Give us your input though.  It’s about to go down!!

My wife likes to watch dumb shows on television…….so naturally, I pay a little bit of attention to them…….they’re all dumb but she loves them, as do most women……………and you can guess which shows I’m talking about.  Lately she’s been watching Lala’s wedding show. Now I like Lala, I think she’s cool but she doesn’t need to be followed around because she’s getting married, that’s just my opinion.  I have this opinion due to the fact that I detest any show dealing with weddings. My reasoning behind this is for the fact that more and more these days, I’m starting to believe that a lot of women want a wedding and not necessarily a marriage.

Think about this!!! Bridezillas!!! These chics could give less than a damn about the long term commitment and hard work that’s going into maintaining a marriage. They just want the shine that comes with the wedding. They want the cameras present to capture them acting a fool, cussing out everybody that’s involved in the wedding from the groom to the ring bearer to the preacher, and trying to assert their dominance as the baddest bitch in the city by going to clubs and kicking other women in the stomach.

Granted I have no clue what goes on when the camera stop rolling but I know these women aren’t  asking the show to come back so they can show how happy they are since the wedding.  The Bachelor on ABC………………didn’t they have a special wedding episode?!?! Come on. You know that was strictly for rating and they went head in. It’s an opportunity to get a free dress, publicity, and an open bar at your reception. The dude in this situation is just as guilty. I feel like this, if your truly in it to spend the rest of your life with somebody, then you’d be willing to just go to the courthouse. A wedding is nice but it’s not a necessity to a healthy marriage.

By now you’ve figured out that I’m just venting.  I love my wife and she hasn’t shown TOO many signs of only wanting a wedding…………………….I just had a few random thoughts and Twitter limits me to 140 characters and I just don’t want to try to make this a status on Facebook. I just wanted to get this off my chest.  If you’re really in love, you want a marriage, if you’re more excited to have a wedding……….throw in the towel.
