Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Each week Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.
This Week's Panel: Fat Tony, KAB, Kyle Hubbard, Zavey, Medicine Girl, Mac, Eskabel, Delo, D-Risha, RoderickVonn, A.D.D.
Not Invited: Mario O., who, at John Glenn Elementary in San Antonio in 1992, gave out Valentine's Day cards to several girls with boogers inside of them.
This Week's Prompt: Since it's almost here, here's a pretty ridiculous question: What makes for an appropriate gift for a rapper to give his Valentine?
Brad Gilmore: hasHBrown's Relationsh*t. Nothing more, nothing less.
Fat Tony: A Too Short CD.
KAB: I'm not a rapper.
Rap Round Table: Oh, sorry. Well, what does a monster get his significant other? A box of dismembered limbs?
KAB: Some chocolate covered limbs.
Kyle Hubbard: I let my Valentine take me out for a fancy dinner at an overpriced restaurant and then I let her pay the bill. She loves it.
Rap Round Table: That does sound lovely.
Zavey: A hug.
Medicine Girl: A copy of his (free) mixtape and 'deeeezzz nutz,' or the 'Vitamin D,' as they say.
Mac: Some lingerie is always good to get your chick for Valentine's Day; a professional massage, some candy, jewelry...
Eskabel: I don't have a Valentine, so I wouldn't know.

Delo: Brown Sugar soundtrack.
D-Risha: I would say a simple, obvious yet sappy gift would be a song dedicated to his girl. [laughs] Simple, effective and easy on the pocket.
RoderickVonn: It's time to disappear for the day.
A.D.D.: A trip to Hawaii on a social media retreat while listening to my album, The Aspiring Me, early.
