MySpace has really made you dudes bold...

No lie.

Ever since the MySpace boom starting around, I'd say 2004, dudes have just been acting "hella" (shout out to my peeps from the Bay)out there.

I mean, wow, here came this free opportunity for you to instantly be connected to thousands of girls, some of whom you guys KNOW you would never have the balls to talk to in person. I mean, not to sound any kind of way, but you pretty much instinctively know what level you're on when it comes to the "attractive" factor. You naturally know what types of girls you can pull, and you naturally know which ones are a far reach. Then of course you understand which ones are way out of your league.

So why would you aim so high over the Internet? Shooting over a message talking about "What it do ma?" Boy, you know damn well you're not on that girl's level first of all. Secondly....over the Internet? Really dude?


Then, over the past few months, I've really started to see the transfer of that MySpace confidence into actual, real, live and in color life. I mean, you know that something is all out of whack when a guy wearing an "off-white" tee, with grease stains & a drunk neckline, faded and way oversized Enyce jeans, and all white Air Force Ones, but you can see the spots where he used white shoe polish, tries to spit game at BROAD DAYLIGHT.

But hey...I guess MySpace is the gift & the curse (big ups to Hov). It's a gift to the fellas who lack that natural debonair quality. I guess anyone feels like they can just bag the flyest chick in the room. Then it's a curse to us fly chicks, because now anyone feels like they can just bag the baddest chick in the room.



MySpace confidence will leave you looking like this guy. It's a horrible disease, and a cure must be found immediately.

18 and Grown...

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to the homegirl Jade!
18 and grown and all that good stuff...welcome to the club...finally! = )

On that note, I just wanted to say that I've been feeling way more "grown" these days. My mindset is on another level and I truly do see things differently. Mark my words, I'm making major moves...and I refuse to let anything get in the way of the amazing things life has in store for me.

You feel me?

Come on Q!

Tonight on Making the Band 4, Q pulled the ultimate of the ultimate bitch moves ever! Dude, what were you thinking? You don't set up your boy like that, for any reason...ever! Brian really should've beat your ass for that weak shit.

Go sit in a corner somewhere and think about what you've done.


If you, for any reason, missed tonight's episode, don't trip because you know MTV will air it at least a good 50 more times.

No homo, but....


Lisa Bonet...still one of the most beautiful women of all time. I'd definitely take her homo.

This kid...

is gold.


"Aye, what you got on your feet, those some Air Tars???"

Haha...gotta love him.

Negro please...

Don't come at me with that same old, sorry ass lame "Lil' Wayne is the best rapper alive" shit. Get off that bull.

I mean, yes he can freestyle his ass off...under the influence of God knows what while doing so. Yes, a lot of shit that he says does blow you away, but hell, half the shit he says is wack as hell. Yeah, I said it. So what? You know I'm right.

Plus, I don't have the time or energy to keep up and listen to every new motherflippin mixtape this guy's too much. So you will NEVER see me hopping on the Weezy F. Baby

And then there are the delusional ass kids who have the nerve to compare him to Jay. But not only compare him, they have the audacity to say, out loud mind you, that he's BETTER than Jay. that sentence over again. Not only does it sound ridiculous, it even looks stupid as hell. Kids these days need to learn to respect the greats. Jay gave Weezy shit to run with.

I mean, Wayne is real, no doubt, but until he can construct a full, thoughtful album...not a MIXTAPE...I don't want to hear anyone else sucking his dick.

Oh...and until he sells out Madison Square Garden in a matter of minutes, I don't want to hear him being dubbed "the best rapper alive."

Get to Know: Casey Veggies

For most people, being in the 9th grade was truly a time where you really had no worries. I mean, all you really had to focus on was school and having fun. That's the life. But, can you imagine going back to your freshman year of high school and having most people revere you as 'the future of hip-hop'? For 14-year-old Los Angeles native, Casey Veggies, that's the reality he lives in on a daily basis. I got the opportunity to ask the phenom a few questions, and the response I got really showed me that this kid has the goods. And for those of you who think you're a "veteran" in this rap game, you could probably learn a thing or two.

1.First of all, tell the people your name and what you do.

Hello world, I am Casey V, Casey Veggies, CV, and all of the above. A “rapper”, “entertainer", music maker, paper chaser, writer, and so on.

2.Give us a little background info on the name ‘Casey Veggies.’ Where’d it come from? Why’d you choose it to be your rap name?

Shoutout to Peas and Carrots to where it came from. My homie Anwar came with the 'Carrots', Joshton came with the 'Peas', and Casey came with the 'Veggies'. It’s just a lifestyle. Also to the fact that veggies are good for you, let alone my music is good for you.

3.How old were you when you first got into this rap game?

Started writing at 12, wasn’t in the game whatsoever, lol...knowing that I would sooner or later get to the recording point and get the games started.

4.What makes you different than most guys your age?

Good question. It’s just me all around. I’m not trying to grow too fast, but I would say it’s just how I carry myself, and my mindset. Wanting to be ‘better’.

5.In your eyes, who are the greats out there today?

Kanye, Nas, Hov, Lupe, Outkast, UGK. I fucks with the Game, Clipse, so on and so one can ever think of [them] all. But then I also listen to a lot of unsigned hype...H.O.P.E., Dom. Kennedy, Pac Div, Drake, Jsean, Diz Gibran, etc...they know who they are, lol.

6.What is the best album or mixtape that you’ve heard in the past year?

Drake-Comeback Season… Clipse- We got it for Cheap Vol.3... H.O.P.E.- Fresh Hell… Casey Veggies-Customized Greatly...Kanye West-Graduation…Lupe Fiasco’s-The Cool. I brought back The Game's Documentary and Hov- American Gangster.

7.What is your favorite track that you’ve done so far and why?

I’m going to have to say two. ‘The Dope Dealer,’ produced by Uncle Dave, because of the whole storyline. You have to somewhat pay attention to get it. The beat is ridden like a horse jockey. I also like ‘I still love it’ just because of the fact that it’s a real/true ass song...and everyone appreciates real.

8.Who or what influences your sound and style?

From what I hear it’s Kanye West. Not purposely...but why not? I’m trying to find my own self, and sound like me only. But I get influenced by good music in general. Next Question.

9. You say that people feel as though Kanye influences a lot of your work, and since we all know just how arrogant Mr. West can be at times, is it safe to assume that you have a bit of that cocky swagg to you as well?

Good Question. I wouldn't say I'm cocky...maybe a tiny bit arrogant. I'm just a shaded type can say I'm cool.

10.You’re so young, and many say you have a long way to go…how do you feel about that?

The fact that I’m young gives me the upper edge. The fact that I write all my shit and do my thing gives me the upper edge. And I’m grinding and I do have a long way to go. I won't stop. I shouldn’t have to.

11.Have you ran into any doubters of your skills yet? And if so, how was that experience for you?

Truth is, no one has doubted my’s respected and I thank you guys! I have gotten criticized to where I can’t construct a full song, but all that being said, this is what I do. When it comes to ‘rap’ I can do it.

12.How do you feel about the state hip-hop is in right now?

Well I believe there's rap, then there's hip-hop. The fact that a lot of rappers believe that their music is "hip-hop" destroys everything. If every artist would stay true to their position, everything would be everything. And for me, I would say I'm a mix of both, but slightly an edge on the "hip-hop" side. You dig?

13.If you could collaborate with any person in the entire world, who would it be and why?

Kanye West. The fact that he makes a song hot and he works hard to perfect a song no matter what. His production is dope, and if I work with Kanye West, the song would be magnificent!

14.Ok, just for fun, say you were going to shoot a music video tomorrow, who would you cast as your leading lady and why?

Melissa Ford. It would spice things up a bit.

15.Honestly…do you think you’re better than Souljah Boy?

Souljah Boy is hot. He’s not a better rapper than me, most def. He’s not a better rapper than a lot of rappers, signed and un-signed. But he’s shining right now. I’m coming...way more legit.

16. What inspires you to keep grinding everyday?

My Dream and Myself. Period.

17. Earlier, you mentioned 'Still Love It' as one of your favorites, and coincidentally, it also happens to be one of my favorites that you've put out there. In the song, you say "I cooked the food, but it was their dish"...what'd you mean by that?

Basically saying, I do all the work, they get all the credit. Not pointed towards anyone, but just a true statement.

18. Any special shout outs?

Fuck. Hardest question yet. EVERYONE. Peas and Carrots. Anwar C., Josh P., the priceless family, Odd Future, Tyler the fucking creator, F2D ent., We Major Ent., Oh boi ent.,Rogue Status! Diamond fam! All the rappers trying to accomplish the impossible...producers also. The B.B. Rose Scenario for this interview. MySpace music for giving me the opportunity to start buzzin' in these streets. LITERALLY EVERYONE...even if you don't like me. It's that simple.

Casey Veggies will be releasing the mixtape sequel Customized Greatly Vol. 2, which will be available for free download. To hear more of CV, you can check out his MySpace Music page and/or the Peas & Carrots blog.

Don't blink, you might miss something...

I remember when I used to live my life constantly worried that I would miss out on something. I needed to be at every event, every gathering, always apart of the "cool" crowd so that I would always know what was going on. I needed to feel apart of what was "important" and most of all, I needed everyone else to feel as though I were important. I was so afraid to blink, so afraid to look away for even a second because I knew if I did, then I would miss out on something. And if I missed out on something, I would lose things, I would lose people, I would be left all by myself.


I no longer live my life that way. I've come to realize that it's not worth always being on edge, constantly stressed out. I've come to understand that it's perfectly okay to look away sometimes, because when you look back and see who's still standing there & wanting to be apart of your life, well, that's one of the most fulfilling and amazing feelings in the world.

In other news, I'm watching the super bowl and I just saw the preview for Adam Sandler's new movie "You Don't Mess with the Zohan." Even though it doesn't come out until the Summer, I'm completely looking forward to it.


Why is this man so hilarious???
