Fuckin Up

 

The old adage states money can’t buy you happiness. Those of us on the lower end of the economic spectrum like to joke that we’d be willing to sacrifice ourselves in the name of science to test whether or not that theory is actually fact or jus a tool that the haves use to make the rest f us feel better as we struggle to make ends meet and pay bills while they take the elevator up to the private movie theater in their 4 story condo.

Daily, nee hourly, we tune into the lives of celebrities and the rest of the haves via blog and their own chosen artistic mediums, we observe the flaunting of their wealth, the celebration of their materialism. We witness them take every single benefit of wealth and fame and regard it with disdain and disinterest. Lately we’ve watched a vast majority of them literally throw it all away and in some cases hide behind an adopted guise of victimhood in an attempt to justify their actions.

T.I. may be getting the most attention, but he’s joining a growing line of Hip Hop cats who are (allegedly) taking some ridunculous risks considering all they have to lose. Foxy Brown could have had it all, and many claim she did. Cosigned as a teenager by none other than Jay Hova, one would think she should have parlayed that early success into a real career, not just three uneven albums, rumors of pregnancy and suicide and a history of temper tantrums that make one inclined to hide their cell phones when Boogie’s within 500 feet. Spending time in jail hasn’t done much to get her thinking straight either- in fact it’s seemingly allowing her to fall into a victim’s complex, believing she’s being unfairly persecuted.

Prodigy’s midget ass been causing a ruckus since his teenage years as well, and age has not brought wisdom. Maybe it’s the sickle cell. Maybe he was set up. Maybe he was just in the wrong state with the wrong gun laws without the right weed carrier to take the blame. Regardless- Alfred’s heading to Rikers, breaking Miss Fatima’s heart, but given this industry he just may be breathing life into a rather stagnant career.

Even Hip Hop’s favorite jeweler, that Russian cat Jacob isn’t immune, as he is also facing some serious jail time and financial losses given some shit poor business decisions.

No matter the person, their case or the motivation, it remains to be seen why any of them would take so many unnecessary risks when they have so much to lose. But this is also an issue of perspective. I don’t have nearly as much as them, so to me the thought of fucking around and stupidly throwing fortune and careers away is abhorrent , but I’m sure there are cats out there who could look at my personal history and say the same thing about some of my actions. None of us are immune to stupidity, but it’s still a damn shame to watch it happen right before your eyes.

 

I know this post is late… if you want regular updates you gotta see the best blogger on the e-block.

    This post is tha T.R.O.O.F!!!

    Although I really can’t feel sorry for many of these bastages…especially Inga’s bi-polar ass.

  2. green eyes Says:

    thank you mac. yeah.. i dont really feel sorry for them either.. at some point we have to grow up a take responsibility for our actions, no matter how stupid and fucked up they may be.

  3. EnglandRepresent Says:

    Yeah throwin your career away on some stupid shit is ridiculous. If I was cashed up I’m not gonna act like I would’nt flaunt it, I would, a lot. And I’d be lashing it up something serious. But doin shit like shootin someone or smackin someone ain’t my style so I’d be impervious to that kinda situation.

    Good post Greenie.

  4. Big Homie Says:

    Maybe he was just in the wrong state with the wring gun laws

    Just an fyi, but was that suppose to be “wrong”. I read wring and caught that..lol.

    Anyways, very good post. These are very smart individuals, but just do stupid acts. Like they have no common sense. Its sad to see them fuck up and throw it all the way.

    Prodigy’s midget ass

    ^ *dies* and yes I would never go within arms reach with Foxy and have my cell on me.

    Your ‘it’

  5. T DOT Says:

    Not only all that greenie, but where are the people to tell them simply “No.”? Isn’t someone’s gravy train getting fucked up in the process, as well?

    Mo $$$, Mo aspirin I guess.

  6. Jamz + Says:

    These words are true, but sad! Should we blame the individuals or society for their problems? Honestly, I expected more from Foxy though. She seemed like she had the golden ticket back in her earlier days…

  7. green eyes Says:

    great point T Dot.. one of these yes men have to realize that if the money train fucks up, they gotta find a real job, and quite frankly “weed carrier” isnt much to list as your past work experience.

    Jamz– cosig.. she really should have been able to pimp that association into some hollyhood type deal, instead of letting kim & eve do it

  8. DJ Dee Says:

    i feel you. when will they learn. heck, when will i learn…damn…

  9. lo k Says:

    sad but true… even Don Vito’s gettin’ locked up… ain’t that some shit…

    even rich people have problems… sometimes it seems like they have more problems than the average person… is there a happy medium, or are we all just supposed to be miserable… maybe that’s why they say hell is really on earth…

  10. green eyes Says:

    its our greed that causes the troubles…for anyone who has also had the opportunity to travel outside of the US to so called 3rd world countries, you can attest that people with the least are usually the most giving and happy.

  11. Delvin D Says:

    Classic post! The thing that kills me is that all these rappers claim to have all this money, but TI needed to put his houses up to post bail. It seems that entertainment=playing on people’s fantasies. Beanie said he’s making the forbes list but he can’t take a rental Altima back? C’mon, these guys spend up their advances and have no back up plans whatsoever. My first advance is going to be used to clean up my credit and pay off my student loans, LOL!

  12. green eyes Says:

    My first advance is going to be used to clean up my credit

    ^ CHURCH!!

  13. reythehussein Says:

    These celebs think they’re untouchable.. It can be argued that the hip-hoppers are worse because they’re under the impression that going to jail will help them out, sales-wise..

    Silly bastards.

    Propsss on the honest post, Greenita.

  14. The XFacta Says:

    Sup Greenie.. I think that the money makes these artist think they can do whatever they choose.. They start believing in the lyrics until reality bites them in the rectum!

  15. E aka FidelCa$hflow Says:

    even after reading this I’ll still sacrafice for myself for the good of science, I’m willin’ to prove money can buy happines, lol

  16. HHF Says:

    Well put…..having everything can get old quickly, and alot of these artist already have the self-destructive demons (probably why they are artists)

    But at some point you gotta make a change…ya know.

  17. The XFacta Says:

    Great post as usual Greenie… I would still trade it all for the money and see if I’d be happy

  18. EnglandRepresent Says:

    Where you at girl?

  19. G7 Says:

    a lot of people just don’t know what to do when they get big money. black, white or whatever, a lot of these people turn into idiots once they become successful.
