    *Flat-line* Lauryn is such a genius poet!

  2. Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

    Isn’t she supposed to be in jail?

    • MC October 30, 2012

      F*** you! lol This is all you gathered from her poem. It game me life tbh.

      • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

        Just listened to it RN and it was amazing, but since she is going to jail she should have Rihanna record it for unapologetic. She could sing it over this leftover beat:


      • MC October 30, 2012

        Sir……..please stop. Hurricane Sandy should have waited until November 3rd to come so she could have wiped your ass out of the world on your B’day. 😛

      • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

        Don’t be mad cuz I was chilling in boston listen to the calm soothing wind while you almost drowned, don’t hate cuz Thta is a hot ass beat.

      • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

        Oh and Rihanna will be performing on SNL in the comng weeks.

      • MC October 30, 2012

        Well wasn’t the storm worse in NY, Massachusetts, NJ area than it was in VA (my area)? Sandy still should have waited to take your ass. Good news Rihanna is promoting, maybe then she’ll pull TTT numbers.

      • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

        It wasn’t as bad where I am (in Ma), and even if she pull TTT numbers she will still get a whole bunch of hits and out rank MerryChristmas Carey in a couple years.

      • MC October 30, 2012

        Boiiiiiiii, how ’bout you pay respects. I’ll believe it when she sees 7 more #1 singles to tie Mimi.
        “MerryChristmas Carey” sold 15 million copies of that Christmas album (5 mil in the U.S. alone) and “All I want for Christmas” gets played + covered by artists every year so suck it! Best selling Christmas album of all time and one of the best selling singles of all time.


      • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

        Soon to say something like
        19 #1’s 11 years- RIHANNA!

      • MC October 30, 2012

        Gurl, bye! Do you really think she’ll be getting a #1 ever era. Even Mariah (Queen of Billboards) couldn’t do that (see: Charmbracelet and MOIA eras). Come on now. Regardless of it all, Mariah’s #1s >>>>>>>>>>>>> Rihanna’s catalog in all honesty.

      • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

        She has always gotten one every era, except her first and thats cuz MARIAH HERSELF (with “We belong together”) dare block PON DE JESUS from going number one so it was stuck at two. But mark my words…..

        LOL just kidding btu I wouldn’t be surprised, she is about to pass Whitney, about to pass Mandonna and micheal Mariah better hide, or hope “a hero comes along”

      • MC October 30, 2012

        What I am saying is that no one stays on top forever and no one gets hits all the time.
        Mariah’s patter:
        Mariah Carey album: 4 #1s (Vision of love, Love takes time, Someday, and I don’t wanna cry)

        Emotions: 1 #1 (Emotions)

        Mariah Carey Live Unplugged album: 1 #1 (a cover song from Jackson 5 — I’ll be there)

        Music Box: 2 #1s (Dreamlover and Hero)

        Daydream: 3 #1s (Fantasy, One sweet day, and Always be my baby)

        Butterfly: 2 #1s (Honey and My all)

        Rainbow: 2 #1s (Heartbreaker and Thank God I Found You)

        Charmbracelet: no #1s

        The Emancipation of Mimi: 2 #1s (We belong together and Don’t forget about us)

        E=MC^2: 1#1 single (Touch my body)

      • MC October 30, 2012

        LOL! You can always tell when she is lip-syncing because she is not skilled at it. Lol at the moment when the whistle register note comes at 0:9 seconds and she misses it!!!! I can’t! *Dies*

    • Sweetnothings78 October 30, 2012

      I thought she was in prison to?, quick stay that was and still no new album…. Off with her head!

      • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

        Im so confused lol?

      • boo October 31, 2012

        Clown with a slave’s mind. Queen Lauryn, speak up on the black rage.

    • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

      @MC I was watching video’s of her, look up “Mariah carey hits highest note ever, she is singing to a dog on MTV.”

      • Benron (King Of The F****** Navi) October 30, 2012

      • MC October 30, 2012

    also, those lyrics are the TRUTH.
    it sounds more like a poem than a song though.
    nice to hear an intelligent woman spit some knowledge rather than typical garbage.

  15. mob: GJ is back on that bullsh*t I see October 30, 2012


    YESSSSSS, “BLACK RAGE” born of abuse, misuse, misunderstanding, mistrust of self, confusion, illusion, & brain contusions…LOL…I LOVE ME SOME LAURYN HILL! Bring back baby girl. 🙂

  16. mob: GJ is back on that bullsh*t I see October 30, 2012

    Victims of violence both psyche and…….. Lets just keep it right there. It is so sad to what folk swallow the media’s bullsh*t whole sale. They just say anything and fools just believe every damn written or spoke word. PREACH LAURYN!!
