What’s been going on in hip hop?
As usual, some things have been going on in the world of hip hop. Today we got the most important stories, including how 50 Cent is now immortalized in baseball history (for not great reasons) and Missy Elliot’s big post-Super Bowl bump. We’re a bit over a month into 2015, and these are some of the latest hip hop news.
50 Cent and Topps
First of all, if you haven’t scoped 50 Cent’s famous first pitch to kick off a Mets game last May, scope it right now. It made the rounds on twitter and everywhere else, but not exactly for the reasons 50 would have wanted it to. I mean shit, it was pretty much a diss track against himself. Now that you’ve familiarized yourself with the pitch, look at what Topps and MLB are doing to commemorate it/throw eternal shade at 50. They’re giving him the most memorable first pitch of 2014 and a baseball card all for himself. He may claim to have the magic stick, but he got that garbage arm though.
Missy Elliot Killing It
In case you didn’t watch the Super Bowl and you don’t know a single person who did, Missy Elliot performed at the Super Bowl halftime show. It was technically Katy Perry’s performance, but she let Missy take a long medley in the middle of it, so shouts to Katy Perry for sharing her shine. The medley included Work It, Lose Control and Get Ur Freak On, all of which hit top 10 in iTunes right after the performance (none of Katy Perry’s songs did.) Hopefully this will be a revival or something for her, because she’s the shit and the world could use some new music from her.
Jaden Smith Released an EP
I don’t remember what it’s called, and I don’t care enough to look it up again. It’s probably #trash so I don’t think it’s worth a listen. For those of you who don’t know, Jaden Smith is best known for embarrassing his father daily and for needing to go back to school.
Stay tuned with hot hip hop news from Spit Talking.
I don’t think anything better will happen in 2015 than Topps commemorating a garbage pitch from 50 Cent #LifeComesAtYouFast. I seriously hope Missy Elliot starts putting out dope music again. I also seriously hope Jaden Smith finds a new career.
