Lords of the Bling

jarule.jpgI’m just as surprised as you are that one of the most incisive critiques of hip hop capitalism would come from MAD Magazine, but it’s a crazy world, right?
On newsstands this month, The Lords of the Bling movie poster. I was sad that there wasn’t room for Farnsworth Bentley as Samwise Gamgee (“Mr. Diddy, look out for that giant spider!”), but it’s pretty perfect as it is.

One reply on “Lords of the Bling

i try to consider all kinds of music, but for the most part hip hop has seemingly nothing to offer these days. MAD’s assessment is right on. even jay-z thinks it’s getting boring
