The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place - lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good - so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Something you always wanted to ask a rapper? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Week's Rapper: Cuddy
This Week's Subject(s): Eminem vs. Lady Gaga; Obama the Terrorist; threatening to shame two local rappers
Ask A Rapper: It's been a busy week or so in Rap World, so we're going to throw a few topics out there that we've been hoping to discuss with a rapper. (Rap World, by the way, is just like Cool World, except with less Brad Pitt.) And we're off:
Eminem made a fair amount of noise when he took a couple of shots at Lady Gaga on his new song "The Kiss," saying he wouldn't "fuck her with her dick" and so on. Shortly thereafter, though, he tempered them, saying that he was just making a joke and she's really "dope" and blah. So, question: How do you feel about Em hedging here? It's kind of the opposite of what he started his career doing. Is he getting more mature, or is he fearful of Gaga's vengeance?
