If anything, being late to a Jay Z concert should be seen as a gift.

This country (world, even) sucks the dick of professional athletes all the time.

Why be surprised when the rest of the public institutions does, too?

Dear Cleveland.com,

LeBron has moved on. The relationship is over. It's time to grow up and move on yourself. He's just not that into you anymore.
 
2013-08-17 06:51:48 PM
Is famous people can just get a police escort whenever they want? That's kind of what's wrong with this country.
 
2013-08-17 06:56:46 PM
Call me skeptical but I doubt Lebron was driving
 
2013-08-17 06:57:45 PM
Why were they on the wrong side? People in Miami don't move over for cops with their lights on? That makes it extra dickish to do.

Some cop is going to get suspended with pay until this dies down,
then they'll be reinstated after undergoing some arbitrary training session.
 
2013-08-17 07:06:29 PM
Don't you think somebody like the Mayor or the Police Chief ought to have a talk with whoever police gave this idea an OK?  If I lived in Miami I'd call the cops for an escort next time I was late for something.  They wouldn't do it, and I'd get to be a dick about it in the local press.

So calling 911 for domestic abuse is abusing public resources but Escorting Lebron James to a rap concert is a fine use of them?

Here (Los Angeles) it is SOP for lit emergency vehicles to approach intersections in the wrong lane. 3 lanes of cars stopped at a light have a biatch of a time clearing room. Emergency vehicles use the oncoming lanes to go around them.

Tax Dollars at work. Hope we hurry up and cut funding to education, welfare, medicare, and relief aid so that we can keep taking care of the important stuff. Im running out of HOPE that we will ever see a real CHANGE in this country. I blame Jesus, no really... if we taxed Jesus and his peoples it would be a good start. Staying the fark out of the middle east would be step two. Then telling Jay Z, Lebron, and the rest of the one percent to fark themselves and pay up would be step three. I know the rich pay the most taxes already but they should... they have it and we dont. I just fixed the economy and whats Obama doing... playing golf on vaca. haha

The ONLY person that should be able to get a police escort anywhere should be the President of the United States,  Perhaps the VP is the situation calls for it.

I bet they would if Joe Blow offered them five figures for a 30 minute police escort. I doubt class or social status is the issue as much as money.

Fair enough. I will say it's hard not to be ignorant whenever you hate an entire genre. I concede racist and old is an overreach (though I still think that's a factor with a lot of people), but I don't think ignorant is. I somehow doubt these guys were well versed in the genre and then decided to hate it. I remember being a dipshiat teenager and hating country but then someone played some Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson and I realized every genre has its good and bad and to be more open minded musically. I've met a lot of people that claimed rap was garbage but I could always find an artist/album/song they liked. Hell, my dad was that way, but I eventually got him to get into Tupac and Outkast, and he's definitely one of those guys stuck in the 70s/80s rock mentality.

TheJoe03: dstanley: Lemme guess: we've never heard of your favorite band.

Well if you don't know who Wu-Tang is, then you really are ignorant of music.

Concerning alternative, conscious, and underground of the last decade, it's possible you might have heard of some of them. There's Atmosphere, MF Doom, Mos Def, Common, Brother Ali, Immortal Technique, Eyedea and Abilities, Zion I, Living Legends, the Roots, Dead Prez, Jurassic 5, Jay Electronica, Deltron, Cool Calm Pete, Talib Kweli, Sage Francis, Aesop Rock, El-P, J Dilla, Elzhi, and some others I might have forgotten. Just be happy I didn't list the mainstream and pre 2000's rappers that I think go against your assumptions about the genre.

/just a music nerd trying to stop the ignorance


Atmosphere and Mos Def bore the shiat out of me.  Jurassic 5 are okay but nothing special.  MF Doom is great, so are the Roots.  Eyedea and Abilities are weird, but I've only heard a handful of songs.  I used to like Tupac but at this point I wouldn't mind if I never heard any of his songs again.  I used to listen to The Streets, the Beastie Boys, and Public Enemy quite a bit.  At this point the only rap I would go out of my way to listen to is Tech N9ne.  It just doesn't interest me any more.  Classic county like I said before can be good, but I have a hard time listening to ANY modern stuff.  It all sounds terrible.

Not really my style, but dude's got mad talent.

There are others who are faster than him, but he is the fastest rapper who you can easily understand.  No other rapper has a flow that comes CLOSE to N9ne.  I also love Gnarls Barkley, and pretty much anything DJ Dangermouse is involved with.

TheJoe03: Truther: TheJoe03: Truther: Sooo

If you don't like rap you could be racist?

Yes you could, it's a genre that many consider "black", so many racists hate the genre for that reason. There were three other types of people I listed that tend to blindly hate the hip hop genre, why not complain about those descriptions?

/I know people that hate country music because they don't like southerners, a lot of people are stupid assholes, what can you do?


I don't care to jump to conclusions about people based on their music choices. A perfectly wonderful person, not racist, not old, not ignorant, etc might hate rap music.Don't paint the world in broad brush strokes...

Fair enough. I will say it's hard not to be ignorant whenever you hate an entire genre. I concede racist and old is an overreach (though I still think that's a factor with a lot of people), but I don't think ignorant is. I somehow doubt these guys were well versed in the genre and then decided to hate it. I remember being a dipshiat teenager and hating country but then someone played some Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson and I realized every genre has its good and bad and to be more open minded musically. I've met a lot of people that claimed rap was garbage but I could always find an artist/album/song they liked. Hell, my dad was that way, but I eventually got him to get into Tupac and Outkast, and he's definitely one of those guys stuck in the 70s/80s rock mentality.


I dunno.  I've never heard a single rap song that I would say I really liked.  However, I wouldn't say that I hate rap, either.  My general reaction to rap is and always has been "meh."  I can certainly appreciate the skill required to produce good rap, but it's just never been anything I really enjoy listening to.

It's kind of like those wooden statues some people carve with chainsaws: I can recognize and appreciate the skill necessary to do it, but I'd never choose to display one in my yard.

Now country...country, I hate.  Or at least modern country.  I'll listen to Johnny Cash or the Sons of the Pioneers all freaking day, but this modern shiat that's just basic mindless pop with eardrum-raping levels of twang injected into it is awful.

Which to me is a reasonable opinion, I'm not trying to act like everyone should love hip hop, it's just I see too many people with a really visceral and hateful reaction to it and it annoys me as a music lover in general.

/I always found Outkast and A Tribe Called Quest to be the best hip hop artists to get people with a negative opinion of hip hop to open their minds up a little bit.

I agree, but I'm sure there is some modern country that doesn't suck. I myself am not interested enough into discovering it on my own, but I'm confident good modern country exists, it's just that pop country (like pop rap) doesn't represent it well.

Dangermouse is the man.

As a Mavs fan, I just hate the Heat in general, but Wade should get the brunt of the hate IMO.

Fallout Boy: Remember: when whitey rock bands sing about sex, drugs, and violence, it is not ignorant. But when black people do it, they are murdering thugs.


Actually, more frequently, they are comfortably middle-class African Americans pretending to be murdering thugs.

The hip hop culture calls them "studio gangstas" and they have been an issue since the late 80s and early 90s. Hip hop loves authenticity and those guys have been faking the funk for far too long and the true fans see though it while the pop rap fans have no idea.

So sad.

No news here. Just another spoiled, rich, self-entitled POS who gets to have their way via fame and cash.

Fark him, and I hope he gets a kick in the nuts at some point. Little biatch.
