He just doesn't have the soul of a Skater. That's the problem.
My reaction when I saw this wasn't a joke.
He's spent the past how many years of his career with his entourage of retards blowing smoke up his ass telling him how awesome he is at everything. This is what they created. I wish he would of bought his way into the UFC. That would be much more entertaining.
The corporate music world is entertaining...
I hope he buys his way to X Games, and thinks he good enough to launch the big air ramp. We all know how that will end....
I hate to be negative, but really... after watching the video of his overlly cocky, childish attitude for his abilities in the skating world, I want to see him pay his way to the top and fail immensely.
I realize that he could be joking in the video, but still.. I don't find him funny, and I don't think many do. Like others said, I feel like he's insulting the people that put many years of blood sweat and tears into their skateboarding career, and he's just gonna magically supersede these professionals talents and abilities in a years time. Go for it, douche.
There is a difference between taking a vacation from his "real" job, and claiming he will be the worlds best at something that he really doesn't have a grasp on. Just has money, and support from people who are blinded by his money.
He can do whatever he wants with his life, but please just go away.
I say we just wait until his first hard slam. Everyone has to go through them. Hell, I had a nice fall yesterday trying a board slide. I imagine someone with as over inflated an ego as him will be a bit unnerved when it happens. Everyone telling him how awesome he is and then he just eats it? How could that happen?! Then he will come down from his little crazy cloud and resume shitting on something else.
Pls put Lil Wayne as unlockable character in next Tony Hawk game
Someone else will fill the gap while he's off skating.
What an insightful analogy.
ITT: Metal guitarists being predictable.
Luckily guitarists etc outside the celebrity-spotlight doesnt have to do this kind of crap to get their attention and fame back.
Closest I can think of would be like 'OMG HE CHANGED HIS STYLE'
Yeah, how wrong of me to show an example that relates directly to what the guy was saying.
I can speak from the perspective of someone who plays jazz that there are many great outstanding jazz guitarists who never release music they themselves composed. There are also plenty of people who dislike jazz. Now this guy said he had no respect for Lil' wayne writing no songs of his own.
"OMG GUIZE NOT EVEN ALITTLE RELATED TO WHAT HE SAID HAHAHA LOL DO U EVEN DRAW DIRECT PARALLELS BRO?"
Dude, Jazz standards can be widely different from each artists interpretation, not to mention the basically endless amounts of different versions that can be created from improvising from different perspectives. It seems like you're pissed off judging by your other thread lol but the facts are that lil' wayne basically reading into a microphone what someone else wrote for him to say really just has no relation to someone like Cannonball or of course Coltrane.\
Like I can kind of see what you're getting at but improvising over chord changes that you didn't create still take alot more skill then pretending to rap
This. Fucking this.
Seriously. Why are we even discussing this? Why does anyone care? If you dislike Weezy's music, he's very, very easily avoidable.
Seriously. Who gives a shit..
I am aware of what standards are and aren't, I play jazz and my teacher is a great musician. I knew somebody would bring up re-imaginings when I talked about standards, and in my defense, plenty of great jazzers don't deviate far from the original head when dealing with standards. On a sidenote, I can doodle over chord changes all day, but I can't rap at all. See how subjective it is man?
And who cares, he has his fans who like his music.
Also, I'm not mad at all. It makes me alittle annoyed that SSO is this way, so I brought up stuff that concerned me about some of you guy's attitudes in a way that was easy to see what I was getting at.
Good, hopefully he injures himself.
I seriously didnt hear him play one note.. he needs to go do something other then ruin guitar, skateboarding ect. He seriously needs to stick to rap, at least there hes decent..not that rap is any good
despite posting this i have 2 of his songs
Texas needs to filter the fuckin' lead out of the water! Of course, you're the epicenter of "purple drank" and "chopped 'n' screwed" so the short bus is pretty much for everybody down there, eh?
wayne in his prime >>>> your favorite rapper
