Hey everyone, im new!!!
LMAO @ writergirl, you are so right. im already singing it and i just heard it. but forreal, what was that about? i mean really? im so confused at the fact that someone let her waste valuable studio time. its a sad video, with all the people who passed away, but you cant even appreciate that concept cause the song is so bad. she messing up those people's memory, how they supposed to RIP after that? answer me that
@ misstdr Flag post
I am from Detroit and I promise I did not know that the East Side of Detroit was that ruff.... I have been all around the country and Detroit is known for pretty girls... I guess the ones like her is confined to certain neighborhoods..... we are not that ghetto she just messed it up for the Detroit ladies like me
I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN DETROIT TIL I LEFT THAT BITCH IN 2000. AND FOR U TO SAY U DIDN'T KNOW THE EASTSIDE OR WESTSIDE WAS HOOD THEN U MUST NOT BE FROM DETROIT. DETROIT HAVE SOME OF THE FINEST SISTERS CITY TO CITY BUT DON'T ACT LIKE NO ONE ON THE WESTSIDE LOOK LIKE THIS. PLEASSSSE, APPOLINE, GREENFIELD, WYOMING, FENKEL ALL THEM BROKE HOODRATS.
NOW, THE VIDEO IS A SHAME. SHE SHOULD HAVE NEVER EVER EVER PUT THIS OUT. BUT I UNDERSTAND IF SHE DID THIS ONE SONG FOR THE PPL THAT DIED BUT DAMNNNNN BE ON BEAT.
Why not just move?! And wtf does it being cold have to do with peace? So many questions, so little answers.
DID U GROW UP WITH A SILVER SPOON AND IN THE SUBURBS ALL YO LIFE??? U SAY WHY NOT JUST MOVE?? U CAN'T MOVE IF U DON'T HAVE MONEY TO MOVE TO ANYWHERE OR A PLACE TO LAY YO HEAD. AND THEN U SAY WHAT "COLD" HAVE TO DO WITH "PEACE". COLD IS A WORD THAT PPL USE TO DESCRIBE WHEN NO ONE CARES, IT'S HEARTLESS OUT THERE, NO FEELINGS, NO REGRETS, HARD. THATS WHY SHE SAY "IT'S SO COLD IN THE D" CUZ NO ONE CARE THEY JUST KILLIN PPL, FIRING PPL, LAYING OFF PPL, ABANDONING THE CITY IN BASIC TERMS.
Now its time for her to get a REAL job, cuz she damn sure is horrible at singing.
I can bet (and win), she never had a real job in her life. All them dudes she mentioned in the song? - took care of her rent, kids, food, and apartment room.
Just another dumb hoodrat.
Bitch got enough time to make a wack bootleg video, but prolly never took the time to find a permanent job.
I hate niggers, and I hate niggas.
They both the same.
OMG....I cannot stop laughing. I mean, the video is funny enough, but reading these comment got my waterproof mascara running down my face. I'm crying. @Toksik, everytime I see the word "Niggadom " in your comment, I start crying. And writergirl, you are so right. As soon as I leave this computer I fear that I'm gonna start singing the song. I guess since I live here in DC, the song does fit...lmao!
I can tell from some of the comments that a vast majority of the people that frequent this site are VERY NAIVE & young.
If you're not from the Murderous Outcold Town of Wild Nicca's (M.O.T.O.W.N. / Detroit) YOU REALLY WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND what the young lady is attempting to convey. Detroit is a place of PURE POVERTY & a good portion of the children who were born AFTER the civil rights era were born addicted to some form of substance- whether it be drugs or alcohol. Most suffer from some form of mental illness, and are hyperviolent.
Back when Henry Ford started mass producing vehicles & paying his workers $5.00 a day for working, DETROIT was the place to be. People of color from the south came here and made a good living working in the auto factories. A line assemblyman / woman could make a middle class lifestyle with virtually no education. All of this BEFORE the civil rights movement era. After the riots of 1967, Detroit elected it's first Black mayor, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, who would continue to lead the city throughout the Reagan & the Bush Sr. administrations. Because of his age and failing health he decided that the best thing to do was retire (he had been mayor for close to 20 years), the next so called Black mayor we got was Dennis Archer(who was actually the WHITE MAN'S NICCA). He was the one who started selling off the city in parcels & pieces.
After Archer we got the clown KANG KWAME KILPATRICK...and bufoonery has been the order of the day.
I love my city: Always have and I guess I always will. This is home. But like so many more people who have education & skills, I too have to leave from here. There is no jobs...Poverty is at an all time high. The children here live like those do who are in a warzone, especially those who are born after 1980. Those are the crack babies who are now adults & creating 2nd generation crack or substance abuse babies.
I'm sure that a great portion if not all of the readers of this site are familiar with the movie NEW JACK CITY. Did you know that it was based on a notorious drug gang who migrated from Arkansas to Detroit who's name was the CHAMBERS BROTHERS?. They actually did have a FEW apartment buildings on the eastside of Detroit off of East Grand Boulevard that pumped crack 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for approximately 4 years until they were shut down.
That young'n in the video may not be a woman who is soft on the eyes...and may not have the skills to pay the bills from rappin'....but she's attempting to do something POSITIVE in a city that is extremely NEGATIVE.
Give the kid credit for that at least....cuz she could be the kid that breaks into your parents home, kill them, and take what few worldly possessions that have sentimental value to only you and your family!.
Not everyone that has commented on this post is young or naive. I myself am of the well over 30 crowd & there is no excuse for this video. Thanks for the education on the downfall of the D or I will say Detriot to show respect to you & what I'm guessing is your city as well. Sorry buddy but ole girl didn't show any respect to Detroit in my opinion. I also live in what some may call the ghetto in SF & how you describe Detroit as
" a place of PURE POVERTY & a good portion of the children who were born AFTER the civil rights era were born addicted to some form of substance- whether it be drugs or alcohol. Most suffer from some form of mental illness, and are hyperviolent."
FYI to you, those conditions exist in hundreds of cities in the US & hell no I won't give her credit for not robbing & killing, why should she commended for showing good sense & judgement?
I get the overall message of the video, but she could've chosen another way to pay tribute to the deceased without using profanity & utter disrespect. When YOU allow others to laugh at your ass they will laugh so HAHAHHA for her stupidity. I'd like to know when are we going to stop blaminig others for what WE allow to happen to US in out Black communities? Granted alot of what happens is determined by outsiders but that is when you get off your ass & get some game as to how to do better. If you haven't been told how to, you better take the time to get educated on what to do. Again I say if I lived in the D, I'd be shame as hell just the same as if she was hollering " It's so cold in the BAY" give me a DAMN break! As we like to say in the BAY "WHAMP on that", she was outta pocket for that song & video & I just hope she is a MTO 1 hit wonder & is never heard from again & if you know her tell I said so. Stupid Batch!!
Sorry MTO fam, but I had to get that off my chest & by the way the comments have been good for hours of entertainment unlike that video.
To tracylee, am I a a$$ wipe with a pole up my ass because I was telling the truth or because I said I had to get off the computer and go to work....I can't tell you the sh** I see everyday in the hospital. shootings and stabbing, all due to black on black crime. Yes, I do work for a "cracker" like most of us do and I make damn good money doing it. I love my people, I just hate the ignorant sh** I see displayed on the internet for the whole world to see..so I will keep saying it "keep tap dancing niccas. The only people who will get upset at what I am saying are the ones out doing to ignorant crap like this video...I will not respond to anything else you have to say, so have a good life and be safe....again I agree with everyone else on this video, it is embarassing and ignorant.
A person can be well over 30 and still be considered young & naive if their mental capabilities haven't caught up with their physical stature. There is a lot of people who are in their 40's who are extremely immature.
As far as extreme poverty being in hundreds of Black communities across Amerikkkah... I totally agree with you, for it is an across the board type of situation. Here's something that I know you know but the rest of the readers may not know.
The wholesale sale of COCAINE started on your end of the country by a young brother named RICK ROSS (not the fake azzed fat ex-correctional officer who decided to make a change in careers and became a fake azzed gangster rapper) down in South Central Los Angeles who hooked up with some Nicaraguans who needed a distribution outlet. The U.S. government (the C.I.A.) ALLOWED plane loads of kilograms of coke to come here via the Contra's...a group of so called freedom fighters from Nicaragua who were fighting to overthrow the Sandanista government. The U.S. banking institution was also involved in this plot too. They loaned BILLIONS of dollars to 3rd world countries in South Amerikkkah. The only way they could collect on their loans was through the sale of the region's chief crop.... The coaca plant once it's dried and processed becomming Cocaine.
The young brothers sales began an epidemic, thus helping to create the monster that we have now. I'm sure you remember what the '80's and the '90's were like.... especially there in the bay area that you are in, when FELIX and his crew was running things. I'm sure you know that there is much needed work to be done in our communities. The child was attempting to convey a message...no matter how corny it is...and how graphic or vulgar it is. I know that she could have attempted to do things in a positive manner, but if a person only sees negativity, what do you expect from them BUT negativity- Right?.
Lets not debate bout the matter... Cuz unless you're a part of the solution... you're part of the problem.
I'm at a lost for words my dammmnnn self this must be a joke MTO are yall trying to punk us or something!!!!!!!!!!! This song couldn't have been produced in a studio, not sounding like that, this girl was off the beat, around the beat, in back of the beat, she was everything except on the beat, I don't understand this, and I bet that stupid song will go platinum, jump off the nearest bridge with that shhhttt 4 real
