I was going to say I’m surprised that this gets reported at all, then I see it’s British.

Not even newsworthy these days-—almost routine.

Pathetic.

Nothing to see, move along.

Lyrics to #1 Rap Song 6/29/2014

“Fancy”
(feat. Charli XCX)

[Verse 1: Iggy Azalea]
First thing’s first, I’m the realest (realest)
Drop this and let the whole world feel it (let them feel it)
And I’m still in the Murda Bizness
I could hold you down, like I’m givin’ lessons in physics (right, right)
You should want a bad bitch like this (huh?)
Drop it low and pick it up just like this (yeah)
Cup of Ace, cup of Goose, cup of Cris
High heels, somethin’ worth a half a ticket on my wrist (on my wrist)
Takin’ all the liquor straight, never chase that (never)
Rooftop like we bringin’ ‘88 back (what?)
Bring the hooks in, where the bass at?
Champagne spillin’, you should taste that

[Hook: Charli XCX]
I’m so fancy
You already know
I’m in the fast lane
From L.A. to Tokyo
I’m so fancy
Can’t you taste this gold?
Remember my name
‘Bout to blow

[Verse 2: Iggy Azalea]
I said, “Baby, I do this, I thought that you knew this.”
Can’t stand no haters and honest, the truth is
And my flow retarded, each beat did depart it
Swagger on stupid, I can’t shop in no department
To get my money on time, if they not money, decline
And swear I meant that there so much that they give that line a rewind
So get my money on time, if they not money, decline
I just can’t worry ‘bout no haters, gotta stay on my grind
Now tell me, who that, who that? That do that, do that?
Put that paper over all, I thought you knew that, knew that
I be the I-G-G-Y, put my name in bold
I been working, I’m up in here with some change to throw

[Hook: Charli XCX]
I’m so fancy
You already know
I’m in the fast lane
From L.A. to Tokyo
I’m so fancy
Can’t you taste this gold?
Remember my name
‘Bout to blow

[Bridge: Charli XCX]
Trash the hotel
Let’s get drunk on the mini bar
Make the phone call
Feels so good getting what I want
Yeah, keep on turning it up
Chandelier swinging, we don’t give a fuck
Film star, yeah I’m deluxe
Classic, expensive, you don’t get to touch
Ow...

[Verse 3: Iggy Azalea]
Still stunned, how you love that?
Got the whole world asking how I does that
Hot girl, hands off, don’t touch that
Look at it I bet you wishing you could clutch that
It’s just the way you like it, huh?
You so good, he’s just wishing he could bite it, huh?
Never turn down money,
Slaying these hoes, gold trigger on the gun like

[Hook: Charli XCX]
I’m so fancy
You already know
I’m in the fast lane
From L.A. to Tokyo
I’m so fancy
Can’t you taste this gold?
Remember my name
‘Bout to blow

[Outro:]
Who that, who that, I-G-G-Y
That do that, do that, I-I-G-G-Y
Who that, who that, I-I-I-G-G-Y
Blow

Who-who-who-who that, who that, I-G-G-Y
That do that, do that, I-I-G-G-Y
Who that, who that, I-I-I-G-G-Y
Blow

A BET gathering without at least three deaths is considered a dull affair.

I guess shootings are BE?

Just once, I’d like to hear the honchos at BET come out and disclaim the rap culture - but since their fortunes are based on it, I guess it’s going to be a long wait.

If Barry Obamination had sons would they be Crips or Bloods or Black Muslim holy warriors? What is it about our sunburned Amish that they cannot attend a party in L.A. without shooting each other. I know, it is a rhetorical question.

Is there a website that warn people of upcoming black events?
I’d hate to plan and spend thousands on a vacation only to find out the NBA all star game is in town, The hip hop awards, BET awards, Black biker week, Caribbean festival, Black week at Disney world etc etc etc.....
Not only black gatherings but homosexual and illegal latino as well......

I’d love to know this website.

Trying to recall the last shooting at an Oscars party.

Or a People’s Choice Award party.

Or a Golden Globes party.

Or a Tony Awards party.

Or a Grammy Awards party.

Or a . . .

There is a “historically black” school nearby; FAMU. I can’t recall a homecoming game where there were not a handful of killings at parties, or in the streets near parties, afterward. Almost every case I recall the murdered persons were innocent bystanders. From the descriptions people just get angry and shoot their guns off to make a point. But the town is crowded and bullets have a good chance of hitting somebody.

Man Killed, 4 Hurt During Pre-BET Awards Party At East Hollywood Restaurant

As a young Airman stationed in Shreveport during the mid 80s, my friends and I attended a lot of rock and metal concerts at the Hersh Colliseum.

They were general admission so it was hot, crowded and loud. Nobody tried to hurt anyone else. If we saw a kid or small person having problems we’d pick them up higher so they could get fresh air. The security passed out cones filled with crushed ice. People would take some and pass it back and ask for extra if someone behind them had problems.

One Saturday morning I read the paper over lunch in the Chow Hall. They reported several stabbings and a fatal shooting at a rap concert in the same Auditorium.

There’s quite a contrast to the cultures.

Yup
I’ve been to many many concerts in my youth and the most violence I’ve seen was violent projectile vomiting.
BUT you could not pay me to go see one of these newer acts.
No thanks.
Frigging animals....

The biggest issue I had was the offers from fellow audience members to “share their stash.” Had to turn it down, being on active duty.
