Music Monday: Nepotism Can Sometimes Get You A Banging Track ... At Nine

Willow Smith, 9. Has banging track. You don't. Discuss.So, little nine-year-old Willow Smith (daughter of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith) has an over-produced, catchy, super-slick, Rihanna-esque club banger single out. Do you hate yourself yet? DO YOU?!

WARNING: Listen to "Whip My Hair" at your own devastation. This track will be all kinds of Langston Hughes on your ass. A soundtrack to your dreams deferred, drying up like raisins in the sun, crusting over like syrupy sweets, rotting like stinking meat, sagging like heavy loads, then exploding rhythmically to something that sounds like an old Swizz Beatz track from 1999.

You half expect DMX to pop up and scream "RUFF RIDERS!" for old times sake.

Song and more after the jump.

OK Cupid Survey Reinforces Stereotypes

Man, do black people love Jesus! (Jesus, be a reply to a wink!) But I didn't need OK Cupid's survey to tell me that. I also didn't need them to tell me that white dudes like Dave Matthews Band and The Big Lebowski. I would have been more interested in how many people defied stereotypes. Like, how many black women love Dave Matthews who aren't my sister Denise? How many Asian dudes quote The Big Lebowski? How many white guys read Harlem Renaissance fiction? How many black guys like Rage Against the Machine and The Killers? And once they find those menfolks, could the nicely send their contact info to my inbox? I'd like to ... um ... talk to them about something. (Source: OK Trends)
