I'm from where the calendars are hung. And the weeks always come. And they just keep coming and coming, and then going and going, and you can never put your calendar away and say you'll look at it tomorrow because the days after will be Sunday, and we'll be saying, "Damn, I was just with that week yesterday."
How real is this? It's already mid-October! My kid just hang a bunch of orange and black spider-webby stuff out front of my house, and this horrible skeleton-ghoul type guy that's already scaring my wife and I every time we come home after dark. Halloween's practically here, then it'll be Thanksgiving, and then the abject misery of holiday season. (Jesus, I wish someone would just start a "War on Christmas" already and end this farce once and for all!) What I'm saying is, time marches inexorably on. There's nothing we can do about it. Except listen to rap music and read stories about celebrities on our computers. (You know, we're not promised tomorrow. Every day could be our last one at this planet. So it's important to carpe diem.)
But while we listen and read, we here at Complex also take it upon ourselves to document the hip-hop happenings of our time. So the aliens will be able to learn about what it was like to live on Earth in the early 21st century, and who was the best MC, Biggie, Jay-Z or Nas? When the aliens visit the planet that will have been left barren and lifeless after the robot wars, of course.
Okay. Lots of stuff happened this week. Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel sat down for a really interesting talk on TV, Pusha T proved he can still rap about cocaine better than just about all the other people who try to rap about selling cocaine, and Game has apparently joined Paris Hilton and Limp Biskit on Cash Money Records. All this and more in What The Hell Just Happened In Music This Week?
