Five Percenter

As seen at SF/J:
    From an anonymous source in a NY state restaurant:

    "Usher. Major cheap tipper. Latest sojourn in restaurant involved showing up with no reservation at 7 PM on a Thursday night, taking a 4-top for just him and his date, and insisting on having the table next to him kept open for his security goon. Two iced teas, two salads and two hours later, he leaves a 5% tip! The waiter involved had to be restrained from popping off some remarks as Usher swept gracefully out of the restaurant. Other extreme—Jay-Z. Always calls half hour ahead to make sure a table is ready and keeps his goons in the car. He is charming and friendly to all, once inviting the star-struck busser to get Beyoncé's autograph and always tipping large."
Moral: Usher's a cheap bastard, can u handle it? Jay-Z has 99 problems, leaving a tip ain't one.

  • And you thought Janet's nipple was scandalous. Peep how the Norweigan's rock.

  • This new trend of putting hip-hop videos online probably violates copyright laws somewhere but who cares? Shit is hot. Check out the videos for NWA's "100 Miles and Running" or Rakim's "In the Ghetto."

  • I feel like doing this sometimes.

  • Look, I know Kanye doesn't "want to argue about His facial features" but dude, why you gotta strut around your other "Jesus Walks" video with a white Jesus? You need to listen to some X-Clan or something.

  • Beyond awesome: '80s TV commercials.
