And Yayo is the Hamburglar

Interesting quote from Game, this afternoon on Hot 97: "It's McDonald's. Dre owns the Mcdonald's, Em is the manager, I work the fries, 50 Cent does the burgers, we sell a happy meal and the kid goes home happy." (wonder if Mcdonald's is sending him a check now)

It's painful hearing Hot's jocks struggle to feign excitement about these b-list Summer Jam performers they're announcing.. "YOOOO, CIARAAA!!?!??? SAY WORD, SON SHE IS GONNA RIP THAT STAGE!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!"

Which is not to knock Hot per se, at any commercial outlet you're gonna have to sacrifice your dignity sooner later, pretending to be geeked about some product that nobody with half a brain could possibly be so excited for. Thank Jebus I work at WBAI..


And in case you thought Hot 97 (or hip-hop radio in general) had a monopoly on stupidity, check these bozos out. Meanwhile the backlash against Hot still isn't done, with NY State Comptroller Alan Hevesi speaking up now. Also, Dan Charnas posted the next installment of his take on things.
