WHY havent we discussed anything about Blood diamonds yet ?


im not very knowlegeable on the subject, but i know that in Africa ppl are dying becuz they are forced to work in horrible & dangerous conditions in coal mines to get us (well not really us becuz i have yet to own a diamond lol) very expensive jewelry...


THOUGHTS & OPINIONS.....

Iam so glad this is a thread, i hate this shit for real, i live in the hood , like a lot of us do, and don't you dare say kids don't want this shit like diamonds , expensive cars and big booty women or rich men, cause they do , i see it everday from my own young family members, most kids don't know anything about what it actually takes to get those diamonds! and thats the shame of it all

I know someone who got robbed for her wedding ring because of the diamond, shit's all fucked up nowadays. I haven't watched Blood Diamonds yet but I plan to sometime in the future.

As for chains and grills, personally they're not for me, but it's understandable that a lot of other people rock them. Although I think the grills thing is kinda stupid, you see people in pictures thinking they're cool but looking hella hurt with some grills in their mouth when they probably woulda looked decent normally =P

What do ya'll think of these product placements in rap music......do you think that some rappers take it too far.......we all know about the thing with Cristal and even Tommy Hilfiger, but some rappers are not paid to place products in their raps for instance the Bentley

They do not pay rappers to mention the car but I'm sure you can go anywhere and a kid wants one and knows what it is!

this has been brought up many times in the past... on of the examples was in Lil' Kims Hit single "The Jumpoff"..... she names 20-30 different merchandising companys... none of which she was paid for...

i guess the fact of the matter is.... its really FREE speech... Bently probably would never mix hip hop in with marketing... they dont have to market... the rap community markets free of charge to the rap community... & the rich & wealthy just buy them becuz they have the money

millions of people will tell u McDonalds has the best fries in fast food... but nobody gets paid for that either

Why do bitches get diamonds when they get married & the homies dont? -- that be some seriously fucked up shit -- pimp 4 life


Some men do get diamonds....but to me its gay when a man wants diamonds.......it shows you caught up on some hoe shit! There should be no reason why a man has more diamonds then his old lady....to me thats crazy! (opinion don't flame me) I am personally tired of this rap about what people have.....that shit gets boring......and that seems to be what rp is all about now....what you have and what other people think when they see you! As for product placement.......why advertise something that doesn't help the community......I'm sure the retailers could care less what happens to black or poor people....why can't they have a song about people just living life within their means.........

Haha! I'm still rockin' a Dookie Chain!! Anyways, platinum chains are alright but I HATE CHROME RIMS. It doesn't matter if they're 22's or 26's. Man, that shit is still fucking ugly. Makes cars look like Monster Trucks and that's not a good thing. Hip-Hop needs to rock a chain because that's how the culture/music started.

Oh yea, Fnck Status Quo!! We all know that was some bullshit!! They can't dance!! Come on, America!! What the fnck where you thinking choosing them as one of the finalists?!
