Am I the only one...

That is soooo sick of how people have all of a sudden jumped on Biggie's DICK since N.O.T.O.R.I.O.U.S dropped?!

I mean I'm FROM Brooklyn, I grew up on B.I.G, and I remember when "Juicy" dropped! Now the movie comes out and now EVERYONE's a Biggie fan...(excuse me while I throw up).

I mean granted...it's to be expected. But to me a TRUE fan was down from day one, not just when the shyt got hot to the rest of the world. People are sheep...and 95% of the worlds population isn't capable of drawing their own conclusions...They just jump on the bandwagon. I knew all that would happen when the movie dropped, but I guess now that I'm seeing it..I'm like..."ugh!

One of my lil homegirls...(who shall remain nameless) Came to me and i SWEAR this is how the convo went...(she's 17)....

Her: OMG! Did you see Notorious?!
Me: No, going to see it tonight...Why?
Her: OMG I like LOOOOVE Biggie now...
Me: *rolling my eyes*...ok Why do you love Biggie now?
Her: Cuz he's a G!
Me: "sigh...He's a G?! That's why you love him now...? Not cuz his lyrics are the illest? Or cuz of his flow?
Her: huh?
Me: .....ok. Well I'm glad you liked the movie
Her: I'mma go home and take down all my Lil Wayne posters and put up nothing but Biggie...
Me: *shaking my head" ok then...Bye (insert name here)...

I mean..."sigh...

My SECOND case in point...I'm FROM NYC, born and raised. I've in ATL (For the moment)
Only been here a couple years...(barf x2) I miss NY...but i digress...

JSW went to one of the clubs down here since he's here visiting...(he's from NY too)
He told me it was cool, the spot was packed and they bumped mad B.I.G most of the night...

So ok...I'm like wtf?! What clubs in the "A" bump B.I.G like that?! He was like they did that night...I was like, of course...(rolls eyes).

So needless to say N.O.T.O.R.I.O.U.S is a must see...but all the bandwagon shyt...is geigh!


Peace!

Hopefully you are the only one. Umm....since the debate of Hip Hop being dead or not consider the the movie enlightening to your younger couter parts. If you became a Biggie fan from the movie I feel like its a good thing ...ummm he is a legend deserving of every "dick ride" he gets ...nice post tho

Depends on how you view it. If he gains fans they"ll continue even after all the hype dies down. The ones that "ride" cuz the movies out then when it dies down so do they...are the "fans" I'm referring to.
Thanks for the response tho.

Yea, but its not like Big is going to drop again next year. His work is finished , the movie was a testament of that. So fans of his legacy is more fitting. You have to pardon me I HEART Big and Hip Hop, clearly.

I'm not a biggie fan, but I did listen to his music back in the day. I went and seen the movie to see about the big hype. The movie was alright! But you won't see me "dick ridin" him the way people are doing!

DollFace said...

All In - No pardon needed, I respect what you're sayin. We just view it a lil differently...nada wrong with that. I'm a die hard B.I.G/true hip hop fan...which is why fairweather fans irk me...

Diva - thnaks for the post and the honesty... [=
