Rappers And Bloggers

Separated at birth! Is comical look at the similarities between Rappers and Bloggers,

For starters, both groups share a love of loose-fitting, pajama-style apparel. Still not satisfied? Bloggers and rappers are equally obsessed with social networking. Every rapper rolls with his entourage; every blogger rolls with his blog roll. Women can't win an audience in either profession without raunching it up like Lil' Kim or Wonkette.
If a little tung in cheek (who am I kidding a lot), but very funny all the same, most of the best points seem to be at the end thou.

But rappers' and bloggers' self-importance also has something to do with the supremely annoying righteousness that rides along with those who believe they're overturned the archaic forms of expression favored by The Man—that is, whitey and/or the mainstream media. Ninety percent of rap lyrics are self-congratulatory rhymes about how great the rapper is at rapping, the towering difficulties of succeeding in the rap game, or the lameness of wanksta rivals. Blogging is a circle jerk that never stops circling: links to posts by other bloggers, following links to newspaper stories about bloggers, following wonderment at the corruptions and complacency of old-fashioned, credentialed journalism.
I have seen that on so many blog's these days that the blog sphere looks more like a school play ground, and most rappers behave like big kids. So it must be true as I sit here hanging with my possy, Ok so I lie the only possy is the one in my MSN list and most of them are in work.

There is most definitely nothing gangsterish about my life, but I have managed to double readership of my Blog in the last week, which is almost like selling a platinum album, isn't it?
