In the midst of the Jay-Z / Louis Roederer ruckus over Frederic Rouzaud's, (managing director of Louis Roederer, the company that produces Cristal) perceived slight of hip-hop's fondness for the pricy bubbly, I have to give Jay-Z props for at least making Louis Roederer aware that they've been receiving priceless advertising for their product without even paying for it. The same goes for a lot of other products that get free product placement and mention in countless hip-hop music videos. Me? I'm thinking we can take this boycott to the next level and streamline the hip-hop world by also boycotting the following...
Cadillacs (aka 'lacs)
Gulf Stream Jets (G4)
Cavalli Vodka ($60/bottle!)
South Beach video shoots (okay - maybe not those...)
Video who-cheese (okay - maybe not those either...)
Beyonce (except when she performs the 'Crazy in Love' video...)
All the following words/phrases:
- no i'm sayin'?
- doing it real big
- ridin' dirty
- 'H' to the izz-o, 'V' to the izz-a
- fo shizzle
- uh oh
- Jesus Pieces
- Jacob the Jeweler (who seems to be in his own bit of trouble)
Just me thinking out loud, y'all...but I'm not the only one.
