Get Rich or Die Tryin’

30 04 2010

they say i’m borderline disrespectful, i tell em suck my dick as long as my wrist and neck glow, i put chicks on XO, then show ’em the breast stroke, hurricane dame i splash and let her legs go, far as my checks go, got cribs in escrow, in three years flat i’m crowned king of the west coast. -the game

Sorry for the lack of entertainment, but we’ve been too busy grindin on that paper chase and enjoying the finer things in life to manage this blog. Apologies to our loyal fan(s), we see you. Someday we’ll be back, leaner and meaner.

Until then… enjoy our new anthem: Rick Ross & Triple C’s – Diamonds & Maybachs.

Imma Fall Back

30 11 2009

“Let’s dance in style, let’s dance for a while. Heaven can wait, we’re only watching the skies. Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst, are you gonna drop the bomb or not? Let us die young or let us live forever, we don’t have the power but we never say never. Sitting in a sand pit, life is a short trip, the music’s for the sad man…

Forever young, I wanna be forever young. Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever young?”

Hm, ok then.

Just to make this post a tiny bit substantial, here’s some musics:

Chris Brown – So cold, Crawling, and Sing like me
Usher – Papers, More, Realest one, and Daddy’s home (without Plies)
Brandy – Take me back
Keri Hilson – I like
Alicia Keys – Doesn’t mean anything, Try sleeping with a broken heart, and Empire State of Mind Pt 2 (Must watch)
Toni Braxton – Rewind that
Jay Sean – War, Eternity, and Do you
John Mayer – Half of my heart
Jason Derulo – In my head
The Game – Better days
50 Cent Ft. Eminem – Psycho
One Republic – Made for you, All the right moves, Good life, and Secrets (new album is growing on me)

rihanna is not a punching bag, chris

26 09 2009

Hm, so I’ve been sluffin on this blog posting business. My beezy yo. I see my cohorts (linked to the right) have also fallen off the blogosphere. wtf gook in korea?! My motivation has been waning and the white man has been tryin to keep me occupied at work, but its all good (from diego to the bay, your city is the bomb if your city making pay, throw up a finger if you feel the same way, dre puttin it down for californ-i-a), I could never abandon my loyal fan base. I know you guys log on (or check that RSS feed if you’re white and educated) to see what me and t-pain gots to say on the daily son. Read on, for a little glimpse into my world recently…

Seattle_Police

So a few weeks ago I went on a police ride-along with the SPD-souf precinct AKA the ghetto. Yes, the place you keep hearing about on the news: Rainier Valley, MLK Way, the battle zone for the CD thugs vs the Rainier Beach gangbangers. This was tight cuz I was in the front passenger seat for everything. The regular traffic stop, the hostile traffic stops (involving multiple units and madd weaponry), and the high-speed chases (multiple). I was also chillin up there while we booked this middle-aged Vietnamese lady for DUI. Peepz the pics of her recklessness:

08-21-09_211508-21-09_211608-21-09_211708-21-09_2114

We hit up Subway for lunch (at 1 AM), heard stories about the many crazy people out there, hassled some neeg teens loitering in a park after hours, hassled some gangsters, and searched for gun casings from an apparent drive-by. We also visited Mt Baker to tell some rowdy neegs to quiet down their houseparty. I never knew black people could actually live in Mt Baker.

Conclusion: This is definitely an exciting job, and if I weren’t so trigger-happy, I just might be interested. If I ever did become a cop, there would be an extraordinary rise in racially-motivated shootings. Dark people are scary in the dark, so shoot first and ask questions later right?

Seattle-Skyline

Now that summer has come and gone, though the weather has stayed sexy for longer than usual, tis time for the ’09 summer highlights recap:

Ben’s Cabin – AYCE oysters and clams is no joke. We did things man-style and cooked everything on a small charcoal grill (gas is for biiiitches). First night it was burgers and sausages paired with a taste from the rockies, ice-cold Coor’s Light. The next day it was a SeaFest of oysters and clams, and the newly created ClamDogs and ClamBurgers. Suffice to say, both creations were a miserable failure.

DSCN7648DSCN7654

At night, while completely sober and in pitch black conditions, we made a short hike to the main street. For some reason this was weird to me, yet very memorable. I started the night sleeping on the carpet next to a soccer ball, then I moved to a lounge chair. Somewhere during this time, the mexican decided to completely destroy the toilet and require the services of a plunger for relief. I hope he learned his lesson.

Much props to Ben for coming through real major, Pablo for pushin the honey-wagon whip, and Brian for toning down the gay. Much hate to the flakers who were not in attendence.

Vegas – Bachelor party. 115 degrees. Caesars. Hot black girl. Bottle service. Tao. Subway. Club XS. Ellis Island. Harrah’s buffet. In-N-Out.

I don’t need to say much else, except that this was a fun trip. Oh, and hot black girl from the PCD section of Caesars casino, please come find me. PLEEEASEEE?! You are tremendously bangin and you made me money. Gah, we should just get married. Oh, and yet again I ended up sleeping in a lounge chair for two nights, wtf?

Hm, thought I had more to write about my summer. This is sad. I guess I could include the return of tpain to the lovely confines of the 206, but I have yet to decide if that’s a highlight or a lowlight… OOOOH SNAPz! Anyways, very solid summer, and better than the year before, but its hard to top 2006 or prior.

colbie_caillatJAYZ

Review of recent albums (songs in bold are must-listen):

Colbie Caillat – Breakthrough: Very solid album. I wouldn’t say its better than her first, but its definitely easy to listen to the entire album all the way through. She needs to get crackin on some swanky music videos. Notable tracks: Begin Again, You Got Me, Fallin For You, Rainbow, Droplets, I Never Told You, Fearless, Runnin Around, Break Through, It Stops Today, Lucky (even though Jason Mraz is a gay). Bonus album notables: What I Wanted to Say, Don’t Hold Me Down, and Never Let You Go.

Letoya – Lady Love: All her bangers leaked before her album, so you could say I’m disappointed with this. But with a third of her tracks ranging from good to “hmm, tasty”, this is a slightly above average album. She also needs to get crackin on some sexy music videos with her fine ass self. Notable tracks: She Ain’t Got, Lazy, Not Anymore, Good To Me, Regret, I Need A U, Take Away Love, and Don’t Need U.

Jay-Z – BluePrint 3: Holla atcha boy, Young Hov is back. The leaked singles definitely got me excited for this album. And while Jay-Z may no longer be a lyrical mastermind (eh, his style never completely won me over), he still puts out some very tasty songs. Production from kanye and No ID is what really makes this album. Collabo’s with Mr Hudson (a white guy?!), Rihanna (I bet Jay-Z hit this harder than Chris Brown, but without his hands, naw mean?), Young Jeezy (voice so hoarse, his name should be porsche), Drake (this guy is blowing up faster than tomas’ bout with ghonerrea), and the mighty fine Alicia Keys help as well. I’ll put this one slightly below the Black Album, cuz that thang had some anthems (BRUSH YO SHOULDER OFF NIG!) on it. Notable bangers: Run This Town, Empire State of Mind, Real As It Gets, Already Home, Reminder, Young Forever.

Fabolous – Loso’s Way: Eh. This guy’s style is just really starting to turn me off. He’s starting to sound more like Flo Rida to me, and that is NOT a good look, homie. He’s got some nice collabo’s with Lil Wayne and Ne-Yo, but its apparent that Fabo has fallen off. Or maybe my tastes have changed? NEVAR! Notable bangers: Imma Do It (chorus only), Salute, and Makin Love.

Ace Hood – Ruthless: You’re prob like, yo Rdeezy, who the hell is ace hood? Well, besides his catchy slick name, this guy puts out some real gutta music. Gutta with a capitol G. Yeah, so his ryhmes aren’t sophisticated or thought-provoking, but its quite evident from his small vocabulary, this neeg spits from the heart and his beats are real head-knockers. Drums, snares, and bASS in yo face will have your bumpin this album in your car for days. Notable bangers: Born an OG, Champion, Get Money, Loco with the Cake, Love Somebody, and Overtime.

Mariah Carey – Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel: Quick listen through. Not bad. Will go through it more thoroughly in the coming weeks. Funny thing is the 50 jizzilion versions of her song “Obssessed”. Might she be a bit obsessed with that song? See what I did there? Clever word-play no? Yes. Nod your head.

nivea07_beyonce_02

Here’s some old singles that I forgot to post about (no links for anything, cuz I’m way too lazy):

taylor swift – you belong to me, backstreet boys – soldier down, bsb – all in my head, michelle branch – sooner or later, asia cruise – no thanks to you, chris brown – changed man, marie digby – surrender, jojo – forever in my life, beyonce – poison, beyonce – slow love, atozzio – any day, rich girl – lucky you are, ne-yo – easy, flo rida ft ne-yo – be on you, chris brown – hollow, and mario – highway to love

Here are some newer singles that I’ve been boppin my head to more recently:

colby o’donis – talkin bout us, drake – forever, jojo – wrong man for the job, nivea – look back, omarion ft lil wayne – get it in, jordin sparks – colours, jordin sparks – walk the walk, juvenile – gotta get it, juvenile – hands on you, bsb – this is us, young money – money, beyonce – control, lil eddie – perfect time, toni braxton – i hate love, and toni braxton – yesterday

Toni Braxton and the BACKSTREET BOYS are back!!!

Random fact of the moment: Notepad is awesome, no frou frou ass fonts, formatting, and other bs. I use it all day everyday. And if you don’t know, now you know nigga. Then GI Joe said, “And knowing is half the battle.”

Line of the moment: “it may not mean nothing to y’all, but understand nothing was done for me, so i don’t plan on stopping at all, i want this shiz forever man…”

Before I leave for now, I noticed its apparently cool to post videos again, so enjoy this:

Please believe I will incorporate that into my shit-talking vernacular, niggas. CHILD PLEASE…

Link, because this embedding shit is not working: Stewie – Squiggly Line

That is so true, Stewie. I too have a squiggly line in my eye. My doctor called it a floater. Sometimes when I wake up early, I just lay there in bed trying to look at it. But the squiggly line is evasive and always eludes my focus.

Signin out for now, this is my new alter-ego:

Imma Let You Finish

20 09 2009

Man, I’m sure most people are sick of hearing about it by now…but Kanye West…dude cracks me the f’ up. The whole meme that’s started also makes me lolz, I was hopin it was going to turn into one and the internetz didn’t disappoint. That’s about all I’ve got to say on this.

Finally got around to checkin out some new music. I think I’m going through a phase of feelin the manufactured, guilty-pleasure, top 40 pop right now. Anyways, here’s some of what I’ve been listening to lately.

Blue Scholars-OOF EP. Sure most of you heard this/about it by now. Personal fav would have to be New People. Glad to hear they’re continuing to switch things up (and not sounding like crap).

Tsunenori-Asunaro. Hella hard to remember song name and artist name. Been a while since I got some stuff from Japan that was on point to this degree. Some good chill stuff on their latest album Promising. This would be me favorite song off the album at the moment. Warning to those with Raymond-ish/boring tastes, there is little talk on this album.

Stuck in my head stuff. Jason DeRulo-Watcha Say: JR really got a catchy sample from that Imogen Heap song, yes yes hate all you want but that song is fuckin mad stuck in my head right now. If you want a similar sounding song check out Replay by some dude named IYAZ, basically the skinny Sean Kingston (who happens to be another person JR produces for. I’m guessing JR made bank off that dude, so why not do it again I guess). Also Jay Sean-Down ft. Lil Wayne has been stuck in my head, no comment on this one, I’m sure you’ve probably heard it on the radio. Note: this does not mean I’m becoming a Lil Weezy fan.

Leona Lewis-Happy. Leona teams up again with Ryan Tedder, another smash???? I would have to say no, we’ll see what Raymond has to say though. Sometimes I think that nig uses a Magic 8 ball to determine if he likes a song or not so who knows what he’ll say. (Song starts at 1:00)

Alicia Keys-Doesn’t Mean Anything. Not bad, lil’ piano, uptempo-ish beat.

Brother Ali-US Album. The whitest white rapper is back. I’m still just gettin through this one. Worth checkin out from what I’ve listened to so far.

Its been pretty slow this summer in terms of new releases, I’ve still got Keri Hilson in the deck wtf. I believe this fall things should be pickin up a bit though. New Mariah (congrats on finally NOT naming an album like you’re 12), Alicia, Sean Kingston, Way out West (bout time), Leona Lewis, John Mayer (bout time again), Katherine McPhee, Memphis Bleek (damn, dude is still around? …and rapping? whoa), Lil Wayne (don’t count on it, this’ll probably be pushed to 2010. Nig flakes harder than Raymond on a Saturday night), Backstreet Boys, and oh snapz, Mr. Hudson is releasing an album. Things sound promising for the next few months.

Damn, I just realized this blogs been around for almost two years. Jeebus. I wonder if “White girls with booty” is still the most popular post. Note to self, title next post something sexual and get mad hits.

Finally a lil northwest tip. The new Bravern in Bellevue. Paaassssssss son. Well…might be a good place for Raymond to go catch his cougar.

<insert kanye west meme here>,

I am T-Pain. Lol that app cracks me up.

7 09 2009

Mark your calendars peeps! November 10th. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. NOVEMBER. ONE. ZERO. Shiaaaaaaat. If you don’t see any posts from me in November… December… January…… or 2010 at all it’ll probably be because of this and maybe Starcraft 2. Damn I’ve been to too many video game conventions this year. Note to anyone listening, booth babes are overhyped. Its all a matter of “relativity”, crapz is that even the word I’m lookin for? Anyways when the ratio is 200:1 and the girl is not a whale she is probably lookin at least decent in an environment like that. So don’t bother going to conventions to look at the booth babes, at least anymore. All the old timers always talk about how things used to be…but they also do that about pretty much everything else. One other thing about gaming conventions, bring uh some lotion, scented lotion preferably. Why? Because those things be gettin mad funky sometimes and a bit of lotion on the upper lip can help mask the smell of thousands of people that don’t have regular shower schedules. Oh, while we are on the subject of games (and lotion) I wanted to congratulate my blogger buddy Ray on his reaching level 55 in cod4. Nice son, I thought you’d given up. Well that’s enough of the gamer talk for now, feel free to visit the Mex to the Max blog for more/real gaming talk.

So with my birthday coming up and all just thought I’d tell you all about my new favorite clothing brand, you know just in case. Its called Ed Hardy by (theee man) Christian Audigier. That shts like having a giant dope tattoo but its on your shirt so A) it’s on your clothes instead of under them so everyone can see it much more easily and B) a few years from now you won’t be like WTF was I thinking and have to pay $10000 to get that ugly shiat removed. Seriously, I don’t think anyone can pull off that brand, not even the dark ones and they can pull off anything. Well that’s what I used to think until I saw Ed Hardy on a black person. Here’s an example of the brand, just in case anyone doesn’t know what I’m talking about. I’m sure you’ve seen someone wearing it around, you probably just thought god that’s ugly and then forgot about it.

token--width-230-height-330

Don’t look too long or you might get a headache. One more example…just so Ray can stop hating on me for not having a picture of a girl in my posts.

ed_hardy_women_beautiful_ghost_tee_in_black_width_230_height_330

Guess this just proves even more that once you get a celebrity to wear your crap people will follow. I’m sure a couple years from now we’ll be like Ed Hardy, oh I remember that, LOL. Until then we’ll just have to suffer through it together. Oh and if you do own some Ed Hardy stuff and this offended you…hmmmmm. Ok.

Lets seee, other stuff I said I’d post…Sloan certification. Eh, Raymond can you take care of this? I’m writing this post in bed right now and too lazy. Maybe I’ll just do it in my next post.

Til next time,
Tpain

PS: Anyone wanna hit up FurryCon 2010?





My name’s T-Pain and I have a blog…

18 08 2009

…that I’m not very good at posting on. Its been a hectic few months since my last post, sorry about the lack of anything from me. Luckily Raymond has been keepin things goin with some activity (fock, seems like I’m always sayin that). I’ll just say growin up kinda sucks sometimes, things aren’t so black and white like they were back in the day. No worries though life’s good and things have a funny way of always workin themselves out in the end.

So…onto my post. I’m puttin in a call for a new header photo for our blog. Any ideas anyone? Minka Kelley pic? Or Sloan perhaps? Raymond’s whip? Which btw I still haven’t had a chance to drive. How about hmmmmmm, photo of Seattle? Eh who knows. Maybe a complete redesign is in order. Anyways, I’m thinkin its time to change up the header pic not because its getting old or any less sexy but because that little bicycle is no longer in my possession…yup focking took me forever to finally put her up on the craigslist but yea, sold her last Monday.

So lets go back, waaaaaaaaay back-to 2006 for a lil recap on my experiences owning a motorcycle. Lets see, took the motorcycle safety training class I think in February or something-by myself (the two who flaked on me shall remain nameless for now). Highly recommended as the best way to get your endorsement FYI. I guess I told my parents it was for me to become a better automobile driver??? Haha, wow. Anyways, the itch finally got to me and I got a bike in November, a little Ninja 250. Awesome first bike I think. I had that thing for about 5 months, put a few thousand miles on it and sold it for about $500 more than I bought it for. Cha-ching or “stackin’ them chips” as some of you would say. Next it was onto the 2007 R6. Man I remember riding that thing off the lot that first day, must have had the hugest, goofy-ass grin on my face ever. Luckily no one could see my retarded self under the helmet. Such a difference goin from the Ninja to that. Over the next couple years or so I logged a lot of miles on that thing just hittin up roads around the northwest (St. Helens, Neah Bay, 101, Myst, on and on). I keep trying to convince the gaymond to take the mr2 out on those roads but to no avail. Man, those days of gettin up at 6 or 7 for a Sunday morning ride and hittin the road before anyone else is really out of bed were awesome. Pretty much silence out there except for the bike at those times and you have the roads all to yourself. I’ll probably miss doin those more than anything else. Night rides, especially group night rides were also a blast. Anyways, good memories and I consider myself fortunate to have made it for as long as I did without f’in myself up. There were some close calls there for sure. I kept my gear so I could probably end up with another bike someday down the line, we’ll see. In the meantime I’m gonna try to get back into snowboarding, I gotta have some kind of hobby that gets me outside (otherwise I’ll never hear the end of it from my mom).

Big change up on the technologies front too. I’ve decided to move over into the land of the Mac for a little while just to see how things are. Don’t worry I won’t be on Steve Jobs’s nuts anytime soon. Just figured I’ve done the Windows thing for a while and the Linux thing; might as well try the Apple now. So my next post will probably be comin at you from some small independent coffee shop while I sip my chai-latte and look down at all the eewwwwwwie pc users around me. I will also rock the nerd glasses while I do this. Maybe an extra small t-shirt from Urban Outfitters, can’t forget the skinny jeans either. Hipster for life son.

Not too much on the musica front lately, I’ve been mad sluffin’. Hopefully I’ll get back on it in time for my next post. DJ Okawari dropped a new album recently, couple stand outs for me so far are Luv Letter and Evening Comes 2. The new Nomak, Musik & Foto is pretty good too. Should I even bother to peep the latest Eminem? Anyone? Yeah I know that ish came out mad long ago but I haven’t had much motivation to even look into it. Anything I’ve heard about it hasn’t been good…at all. Speaking of bad albums, I wonder when the next Lil Wayne disc is coming out, Raymond???

I’ll try and get another post together in the next month and get back into the habbit of regular posts (has that ever been a habit for me actually?).

-t out

PS: possible topics for next time: a little reflection on the City of Angels, Sloan certification, my new favorite clothing brand, random ranting, and maybe stories about my good friend who happens to be a reindeer.

PSS: I realized there’s no media in this post, so here’s a lil clip to check out from my favorite actor, haha.
