Now don't get me wrong, the guy has done well but 'songwriter'? 'of the year'? Seriously? Who decides this shart? Is it based purely on sales figures, as I suspect it must be? Or what?

Are those four horsemen I hear approaching?

Yeah, right. He's a songwriter the way my grandma's a conductor because she can turn on a radio.

That's it. ASCAP is dead to me.

And you say he cannot write songs ...

Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day was one of the songs of the year.

It shared the honour with Mariah Carey's

I think that's all we need to know.

My wife started saying "fiddy" instead of "fifty".

Just all the sudden like. She must be a fan of his.

Either that or when she mentioned him with proper pronunciation around fans, she learned her lesson.
2006-05-23 06:11:31 AM  
Maybe, but I'm also talking about "Do you have 2 dollars and fiddy cent?"

I got my ass kicked in 4th grade when I pointed out that more than one cent was plural :(
2006-05-23 06:20:14 AM

Hello, ASCAP? Does the name Ray Davies ring a bell? Butch Walker?

Writing music + lyrics = "songwriter"

Rapping != songwriting
2006-05-23 08:50:20 AM  
i've said it for some time...

-the music died.

... all I'm hearing is pops and clicks, baby.

before this turns into yet another fark rap haters thread..
he isn't a brilliant songwriter by any stretch of any decent human beings mind.
no rap fan worth your time will argue that 50 is a great, or even good songwriter.

in my opinion, if you want the a rapper that can tell a tale with his lyrics.. Slick Rick...with his art of storytelling.

i will take this time out to say that if you dare venture into the world of decent rap and would like to know where to go in order to find some good stuff, check out the soundtracks to most extreme sports videos (bmx/skate/snowmachine/snowboard).. something like a Tony Hawk video game soundtrack, which also includes vintage rock and well as new rock from little known artists. Typically, the music found in that game and on the videos i mentioned above are high energy, feel good types.

Oh, you so are not disregarding the genius that is "Trapped in the Closet" by R. Kelly, are you?

"And then Cathy looks at Rufus and Rufus looks at Chuck and Chuck says 'Ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuufus!'"

I can rap as well dear chaps...

N--ger ni--ger biatch hoe

My skin is black and i wear a fro
Hi i am super cool - i took 9 to the chest
im nobodys fool baby im the best
And i like it when your ass shakes...
bum bum and ass. I want to touch your bottom parts. where you farts... farts... what rhymes with farts....

Thank you -- il take that songwriting award now.

Curtis James Jackson III's music is based on violence and vulgarity. And in no way deserving of a songwriters award.

I say, rollin' around,
settin' on doves(?)
Got(?) my eye was high on shrubs,
Coolin' in my Escalade,
Man I'm paid, I got it made,
Take me to your special place,
Close your eyes show me your face,
I'm gonna piss on it.

Haters gotta hate,
Lovers wanna love,
I don't even want,
None of the above,
I want to piss on you.
Yes I do, I'll piss on you,
I pee on you.

I said yo body, yo body,
Is a portapotty,
And I pee out kit(?),
And I pee on you,
Drip, drip, drip,
Pee on you,
Piss on you, piss on you,

You won't feel quite the same,
Once you get a whiff of my Hershey stains,
I wanna piss on you, too,
I want to pee in yo food,
Only thing that make my life complete,
Is when I turn yo face into a toliet seat,
I want to pee on you,
Yes I do, pee on you,
I'll piss on you


Won't you braid my hair,
Before you stop, I gonna (?),
I wanna fart on you.

The album, or just his talent in general?

Because I have to be honest, It's been over 20 years and Indian Girl is still played in my car.

That entire album is still amazing. It's nice to see Slick Rick get some love.

Christ, now I have to go play it.

Davey...Daa-vey Crockett.. king of the wild frontier....

I'm talking about the album in general...all his albums.
