This was interesting seeing this... I noticed that there is a nosering... that wasn't the only thing I noticed I assure you but I think it says something....

It is true about the rap though... except I don't quote rap... I quote Veronica Mars... but that isn't the point.

This was interesting to see him so passionate about something.

"Do what you want." YES! That's exactly what people should be doing!

As for the style of hip-hop that raps about nothing but women and money, yeah, it's pretty vacant. It's so utterly vulgar too. There's more to life than just women and money (although, don't get me wrong, I like both).

seriously though, plant a tree or something. do something useful.

i understand why ppl (generally men) would rap about that. they grew in not-so-great- places and saw ppl die in their neighbourhoods. rock bands have done it too (hair metal bands is the first example that come to my mind)but come on now ppl...like loring said, "Go plant a tree".
