As for the week in other rappers’ hijinks, Wale proclaimed that he doesn’t listen to “Dischord Bands,” Jeezy clapped back at Bill O’Reilly, then says he’d rather watch Jimmy Kimmell, Jim Jones went “Na Na,” Kid Sister didn’t take fanboys out on a Dream Date, Raekwon and Ghostface put out “Criminology 2,” and 50 Cent embarrassed Rick Ross, and Biggie’s kids continued to be damn cute.
What else did we do? We saw Kings of Leon, sat through Young Jean Lee’s The Shipment at the Kitchen, watched Songsmith remixes, adored the hand dryers at the Stars Like Fleas show, listened to Stacy Peralta talk about Crips and Bloods: Made in America, and played Assteroidz, a fully functional arcade version of Asteroids wherein you fire bullets out of David Lee Roth’s crotch so as to blow up Van Halen logos. Blam!
