Well, hip hop definitely isn't about doing fake accents, I'm pretty sure of that. Also, hip hop stopped being about saying the word "homie" in, I believe, 1992.

To paraphrase one of our nation's foremost social philosophers, Like Dat of Flavor of Love 2, "You can't be ghetto if you're not from the ghetto."

Um, homey/homie is still used pretty frequently in rap songs as well as slang. Maybe not as much as the "N word" but it's still there. Examples: The latest Obie Trice, Lupe Fiasco, Ludacris, Jay-Z offerings. Also, NaS is frequently refered to as "Little Homey" by the hiphop community (for what reason I don't know, but I'm guessing it has something to do with his previous feud with Jay-Z). Pertaining to the 'ghetto' point, I don't think Cena is trying to be ghetto or hood. He's just exhibiting charectaristics of hip hop culture. (as a crude example: Saying I will kick your ass isn't 'ghetto.' Claiming you grew up poor and hungry in the streets is.) Even then, in no way should anybody on Flavor of Love serve as a barometer for judging people. And finally, in regards to the original point, self-deprication and refering to oneself in the third person is in no way new in hip hop.

What the hell? We haven't seen the last of K-Fed.

wwe.com reports:

K-Fed up
By Brett Hoffman
October 21, 2006

Last Monday night, Kevin Federline a.k.a. K-Fed appeared on Monday Night RAW with his good friends Johnny Nitro and Melina. During his appearance, Federline was involved in a physical confrontation with WWE Champion John Cena which saw the aspiring artist become the recipient of an F-U.

K-Fed was furious with Cena’s actions and the treatment he received during his visit. As a result, he has informed RAW’s Executive Assistant Jonathan Coachman that along with Melina, he will be in Johnny Nitro's corner for his match this Monday on RAW with Cena.

In addition, Jonathan Coachman has released the following statement to WWE.com.

“I am pleased to announce on behalf of Mr. McMahon that WWE will have the distinct privilege of promoting Kevin Federline’s new album “Playing with Fire.” I have listened to the album, and I can assure you that it is nothing short of a musical masterpiece.”

K-Fed failed to endear himself to the WWE fans on last week’s show. What kind of reaction will K-Fed get when he accompanies Johnny Nitro to the ring for his match? Will K-Fed receive more suitable “treatment” this time around?

Yeah, they can't possibly mean what they're writing.

(phew) KNEW IT.

(I say they sign him and make him a mouthpiece. Heat like none other, 'specially for a non-wrestler.)
