We Need to Stop Talking About Iggy Azalea

Complex - Since I heard about her I haven't stopped reading these articles which highlight her achievements, but which side does she really represent? Iggy Azalea comes across the airwaves and the music sounds tight it's just nobody can understand or distinguish where she is from. Australian hip-hop? what is she talking about it's my only question but look the swagger appeal took many artists into the record books, following up on a female rapper started out sounding okay but that was when I was expecting to be rolling in a nice car and/or tuning into listening to some African musicians. I never imagined the publishing deals and sold out concert to bring her into rap stardom on behalf of Def Jam. It amounts to enough exposure too much happening on the R&B level not hip-hop that's a unique argument but her ability to rap needs more energy it's show and tell but there isn't anyone going to speak on behalf of women other than someone getting played on the radio. The radio stations need new tracks each time there's someone like her getting famous speaking on a local level it's a cycle but the cycle doesn't reward imported artists; No wonder french hip-hop was popularized I never been to France but going there isn't half the story because talent isn't cheap. Moving on she sold records but God knows how many I would like to imagine Iggy Azalea on the cover of magazines as a nice person, her album is inspiring but the foreign connection doesn't sound like it got her to where she is now the radio tried it better good look amazing. I under estimated her rap skills but she did freestyles during the B.E.t Hip-hop awards she isn't on the cover of XXL magazine exposed understand could make her Wu-famous. They have Kendrick Lamar instead no lie because he's performing on SNL on the weekend meanwhile i'm being told about music magazines which include hip-hop artists and don't talk about Kendrick Lamar dressed in nice clothes and rocking suede shoes, just listen at the news gives me a reason to ask more questions. Especially why she had the beef with rapper Snoop Lion what next. Anytime people notice someone having a blast and signing autographs they start hating I think Iggy Azalea music needs work but I downloaded her website before I was asked if I wanted speakers. Please go to her Facebook page for more info about her album and artwork.

Sony Hack

I was just outside now seated at my computer desk I been trying to get caught up with all this information about the latest attempts to destroy Japanese electronics giant Sony, I am not aware of much else other than say that someone or a group of people from a certain hacking community not speaking to media but flashing and showing signs that they've got something to prove. I heard enough about it in the newspapers since I cannot even go grab the new music coming out I just challenge myself each and every time I walk out of an electronics store not to ignore the often times rude remarks from other individuals who are either against the government of the United States or gunners hired to destroy a community. I also been watching the Asians and they don't seem at all interested in school maybe busy learning how to dance but the hackers could be school kids, just looking at what someone could be doing on a laptop makes me a coward because I could be shoulder surfing and running around for information. Have you ever seen Spy Kids? well there is a lot you can learn by just going to the movies and purchasing a ticket. On this occasion I left my job to go watch a film at first I was reluctant then I happen to buy two tickets, each costing $52 the trailers came on then I caught a glimpse of the movie "The Interview" what grabbed me was the title how it sounded I then began to look at what was happening on screen to my suprise, the movie started without any ushers entering the theater. So I began to think how horrible it sounded and how destructive it was just watching the trailers they were really violent but it ended peacefully I walked in after getting some gas from the nearby gas station. I felt paranoid having to sit and wait for a film to begin but this is in the next town are you aware of the zip codes and street signs? some are very horrible so many people living in such a place why did I bother leaving I thought to myself? anyway after I left I watched the news. It just so happened to be a very long film and I didn't bother going to see the second which wasn't on no THX screen or anything, I asked for my money back don't ask why? I guess it's because I left a comment about "The Interview" during the trailers and was forced to request for money I don't make much my paycheck wasn't up to what I had been expecting. Getting out of a theater was simple I just asked for my money back because I used a "plastic card" to pay for the film. Maybe I don't get it the best things in life can be free looking at how credit card companies show you how to raise the limit on expenses, I don't like missing the point but if it's not to difficult waiting in line for the doors to open or better driving behind a tailgate party. Credit card companies shouldn't have to take the blame when people are misled or taken for granted just try understanding the price as some rap songs mention they don't check the prices, I got a black card, Versace Armani rich you know who. So the hackers mainly hang out at the malls and get arrested often some are very young I don't want to go deeper because spying and espionage you cannot do but if someone really walked out with their hands in their pocket would they be labeled or watched like Killer Mike. I am going to just say that sometimes they hate even Africaans the cheese isn't there I just have to answer when told what to do next if you know what I mean there's not much to do but meet up with the very same people who you trust or work with, I don't live in a rich neighborhood I don't even get an allowance hacking is hard lights get cut off in my neighborhood. It doesn't know what the voodoo signs mean or sparking up a conversation with black people excommunicate your way out of paying traffic tickets, talking to the cops a very excruciating experience i'm intelligent always calling the authorities, in a foreign country stuff happens but I been to the store if you ain't balling nothing nobody is going to believe you just look at Nazi propaganda.

Status Update

Hello, It's been a long time since I've said something on my blog basically just performing as usual despite the downtime which affected my daily activities. I found the web not functioning this past weekend after I turned on the computer and couldn't check e-mail, I have also noticed the protesting going on all the people walking looking thirsty I felt for them I haven't been able to do much other than just work and come home. By the end of the month I will have lost 2-3 jobs because I made a big mistake of going to ask and also try helping someone obtain a green card, it all started one morning mom telling me to help take her somewhere I agreed to take her to the immigration office located some 42 minutes away. By the time we arrived I was behind the wheel anyway we entered and I asked about the movie playing on the television I washed my hands and left to return home I had found a second job working at the airport my shift usually started at 2 PM and didn't end until late in the evening around 10 PM. I was just hired as a matter of fact the name of the company I don't want to mention but since I already had a job I happened to answer the call of duty. So I told mom I needed to return home a.s.a.p. but she had to take me to the bank and also go speak to my cousin who recently gave birth to their second child, we stopped to grab a bite to eat at Wendy's before I left for work in a hurry. On my way back I called her to tell mom I was fired I walked into work late after getting all prepared for the shift, I have to explain because the HR told me I had messed up and broke a "cardinal rule" which requires personnel have identification when working at the DFW Airport ramp never ask about identification or how to obtain identification from the DFW Business Center. So I took my shirt off which they provided me and I stormed out of their training room because I had did everything they asked except for cooperate when it came to working my position as a porter, reporting to work later than expected after leaving my job, requesting for permission to obtain identification etc. I was just talking to someone about my identity which I somehow needed because I wasn't going to work without a time card and/or perform without taking food and other items home. Items such as for instance the Korean Air food or watch a movie on British Airways they just don't provide badging it's not as easy as some may think I suppose you have to ask them nicely because since I started wondering about getting hired the only thing I notice is rejection, the airport can often be a hassle since locating gates and parking my car, talking walks often annoys me.
