Derrick (in his 1930s Hollywood diva voice): That Benie person is absolutely revolting!

Luther

What an absolute CREEP, I don't know who he is, but, then again, I don't know the other two either as I'm not into any form of rap music, but, it seems like the beanie man has got a bad case of bitterness. These trifling dance hall/rap stars are too much with their jealousy, lack of talent, and insecurity about their own sexuality.

Poof, be gone bitter bean!

Shabaka

Oh boy! Someone's frustrated!! Beanie, honey...You can wear LV too if u're man enough! LOL.

Love the line "the tired, over-sized white t-shirt and baggy jeans faux gangtsa aesthetic." Thank you! Don't forget the Timbs. Black men, gay and straight, were once the style setters for fashion. For the last decade plus, black men have been stuck in a wanna be hood, saggy jeans rut.

PS, who is Beanie Man?

Andy in Seattle

Beanie--that shade of green in your jealous face really clashes with your 'hood fashion.

boogie tonight

fyi that 'hey you' song is not new, its just a reworked version of an unrelease Madge song...

A. Ronald

Boogie, regardless of its history, it's still a new track.

But that really was only mentioned in passing, no? Isn't there a bigger story here? Beanie Siegel's myopia and mean-spiritedness acts to bully any young black man, gay or straight, who doesn't want to pretend to be a thug.

brandon

Indeed. Stupid comments such as Sigel's legitimize homophobia. They actually go farther than that, as Rod suggested, forcing people to conform to negative peerceptions of black men.

Attitudes like Beanie's is the reason why I gave up on Hip-Hop culture. The homophobia is a given, but the mindset that if your not like everybody else you ain't "hood", is ridiculous and equating sophistication and maturity with being less than manly? I can't take it anymore! And isn't "the hood" something you aspire to get AWAY from? What an ignorant fool.

ReggieH

Black people are VERY diverse, and frankly I'm TIRED OF THE BAGGY LOOK! Oversized is over! And Thug (in the streets, you know what in the sheets)? Please...Bravo to Kanye and Pharrell!

Of course if either wanted to come out, I'm all for that too! How you doin' Ms West! LOL:)

ca

Thes ecomemnts are exactly why so many ofour people remain in chains, literally and figuratively. You're supposed to move beyond this destructive group-think.

jayden

Beanie Siegel is past-tense! What he needs to be doing is makin' some records; to pay his court fees. In & out of jail; running scared from people in his "hood". Everybody in philly knows. Beanie u ain't "hood".

taylor Siluwé

I think we all should praise Beenie.

Yeah. I said it. He's clearly a jackass. But he's managed to make even the ghetto-est hood-rat look almost intelligent. Anyone with half a brain knows that 'conformity' is the least manly trait ever known. Real men don't follow, they lead. Thanks Beenie for that eloquent 'Hood Moment', may it bring the notoriety you crave from folks even dumber than you.

Let's hear it for trendsetters like Pharrell, Kanye (even though he gets under my skin sometimes), and all the others who know you'll never shine if you keep trying to blend with the ignorant masses.

C. Baptiste-Williams

Ignorance at its best.

Allan

Beenie what you need to do his get an education you sound so damn ignorant looking like a black piece of twizzler Kanye and pharell are the best and you aint shit gay are straight they are the men, you crack head mother f..ker!! go to school!!!
