Thats a reference to the 50cents album released this week which in my opinion is rather poor and also the slaying of four RCMP officers in a raid on a marijuana grow operation in Alberta yesterday.
I've only scanned the articles about the police slaying but the basics are 4 officers stepped to a weed grower at some deserted farmhouse, dude had a high powered rifle and killed the policemen and then killed himself. What a way to go out! I'm usually not a big police fan but still that's kind of a rough way to go out. Cant wait to see what details come out in the coming weeks like how he took out all 4 so easily. damn. And yes for Canada that is considered a major event. Yea we have our shootings (in Toronto at some points it seems like every weekend) but 4 cops killed at once yep that's major here.
On the 50 cents album, I must be getting old because both that and the Game album did nothing for me. I actually found the Game's album average while I've heard alot of folk through around the word classic. On first listen nothing really stands out on the 50cent album aside from maybe 'Piggy Bank'. Best thing about the album was probably the video for Disco Inferno.lol. Actually I'm not hating on G unit if you're wondering because I found the Young Buck and Lloyd Banks lps were far better. I just think 50 put in a half assed effort on this lp. Getting rich, buying Tyson's estate, dating Vivica and all that seems to have taken off the edge. I still stand by my belief that Ja Rule will have the longer career. Now note I didn't say better, just said longer.
Anyway that's about all from me today. I went to see the "Kink in my hair" last night. Its this play set in a hairdressing salon dealing with some stories from the lives of black women so ya know they had to get their fair share of liks in at black men. sigh! It was ok still. I'm not going to be critical of it because although I had a few issues (I'm usually a harsh judge and I don't like to see people dissing the bredren) I don't know if I could write something that good and its good to see a black play getting a run at a big theatre and a black play written with West Indian dialects (lots of Jamaican and a bit of bajan thrown in hmmm sort of like this blog lol) so respect due. If you're in Toronto and you haven't seen it I'd say its worth it.
