Swag v. Substance

( ( ( Let’s Keep it Real Talk ) ) )


Take a look around, there are countless people – young and old – who think just because they have swagger they don't have to graduate to having actual substance.

For example, in recent months we've witnessed the implosion of swaggerific rapper William "Rick Ross" Leonard Roberts II in his outrageous "beef" with hip-hop titan Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. Rick Ross assumed that just because he hid behind shades and makes head nodding music that would distract audiences from some very serious character challenges; like being a deadbeat dad, repeatedly misleading others about his past and wearing knockoff LV shades claiming they're custom-made only to get blown up by the manufacturer. WTF!

Has swagger replaced substance? Has faking it replaced making it?

These days it seems like "swagger" has become the new "cool." But are people hiding behind faking it to keep from actually making it? On the next show (episode #8) S-Dot & Ms. Indi will be discussing Swagger v. Substance to examine what's really going on or going wrong with today's consciously social community. We'll be sharing some tips on how to stop being lame to actually mastering "the rules" and winning the Game. Join us on Friday, Oct 2 @ 10 p.m. (Eastern) call-in to share your thoughts at 347.308.8527.

HATER ADVISORY - This show is for REAL people, about REAL things, move fakers are strongly cautioned it's going to be REAL talk.

What it do peops?

Had a very lively show this evening on BlogTalkRadio the topic was "Peep Game" and weighing in was my dude filmmaker/music producer Kenny Dynamite Hassell, as well as author, speaker and empowerment coach Hasheem Francis, my joan (homie) Kiran and 2wo (one of the divine 9ine women that taught me the guiding principles of my life). She also overshared my business (lol).

The conversation was pretty interesting. Click by and listen into the archives (episode #6 yourself), also "When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong" (episode #5) and "The Ex Factor" (episode #4) are worth checking out as well. Share your thoughts and feedback and thanks for listening.

Kanye Gets *ssed Out by Obama

By S-Dot for The S-Dot Files

Here's Kanye & Amber Rose backstage, I guess he'll "blame it on Henny..."


Of course this week's The BOOTY Call Show will be delving into "When Keeping Real Goes Real Wrong" in response to recent overshares from Rep Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) on 9/9/09 in Congress in which he rebuked the president with "You lie!" and Kanye West on 9/12/09 at the VMAs making himself the awards police.

WARNING: Before you run your mouth...have a Jodeci moment - Don't talk...just listen. You'll save yourself lots of humiliation.

Take a gander at Kanye West. He epitomizes this disorder in every aspect. The egomaniacal ranting, and self-centeredness at every opportunity to make a public spectacle of himself. He a raging narcissist that’s clearly ready to crash and burn. His winner-hating display against Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs is a clear example of what happens when keeping it real goes too far.

Click by his site: to take a gander.

On his site he arrogantly displays every single cover he’s been on. It’s nothing wrong with being proud of one’s accomplishment, however with Kanye you can discern that he’s thumbing his nose at naysayers rather than relishing his accolades. It is this love/hate relationship with the limelight that has endured him for years to fans who until now gave his antics a pass. That pass has now been revoked.

Terry Moran a correspondent for ABC tweeted that president Obama called Kanye a “jackass” off the record while being interviewed by CNBC. Wow! That’s when you know you’re being put on blast when you’ve got B.O. P.O’d at you.

Here’s a clear indication when you’ve been put on ( ( ( blast ) ) )

Q: Were your girls as hacked off as mine were that Kanye gave Taylor Swift the Joe Wilson treatment?
Obama: I thought that was really inappropriate. You know it was like she's (Taylor Swift) getting an award -- why are you (Kanye West) butting in? I, I hear you -- I agree with you.
Q: So does that count as the first question?
Obama: The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She's getting her award. What's he doing up there? He's a jackass. (Laughter) No, now -- this -- all this stuff -- I'm assuming all this stuff. Where's the pool? Come on guys. Cut the president some slack. I got a lot of other stuff on my plate. Yeah. Cause I remember last time it was the fly thing. Now that was the highlight of (trails off)

( ( ( sDOTtv ) ) ) now playing Obama calls Kanye a Jackass

DEFINITIVELY SPEAKING – there’s a new term added to the hip-hop lexicon for playing ones self, “You totally Kanye’d that.”

Kanye – to make buffoonish, unsolicited comments while intoxicated with narcissism in total disregard of others because you’re an attention-whore desiring all praise all the time.


There's hope for Kanye. Let's all be REAL we've played ourselves too! Let's keep it REAL talk.
