On Friday, January 16th, in Greensboro, North Carolina, a patron open fired on a crowd in the packed lobby of a theater that was showing Notorious, the bio pic of rapper The Notorious B.I.G., hitting one man in the abdomen.

Also on Friday, four people were stabbed in a Brooklyn nightclub at an event that was promoted as the “official” after-party for the film. A 21-year-old victim is in critical condition. Fox Searchlight (the film’s distributor) denies any involvement with the event.

In other news, the KKK rejoiced, proudly proclaiming, “We told you so.”

Way to go, playas’. You get an A+ for perpetuating a stereotype, you low-expectation dipshits. And just before first African American takes the oath of office!

  1. that is just wrong. but, having seen a video of a white NFL Raider fan knife a white Broncos fan “just because”, i’m not thinking color has anything to do with stupidity. as our good apostle Forrest Gump says, “Stupid is as stupid does…”

  2. Biggie was a movement in hip hop. no offense, but you are probably too old and I wouldnt expect this to be on your radar. Notorious BIG was a very talented rapper and a success story. I know its hard for you to give credit or waste brain cells on the topic, but sometimes you have to accept these things. I love BIG.

  3. Greg: Here’s the thing. My post has nothing whatsoever to do with Biggie. Nothing. Of course he was an innovator and talented. Nobody is disputing that. What bothers me is that there is a nation of small-minded hate mongers who have their every prejudice and preconceived notion about rap-associated violence confirmed when they shit like this go down. The rap community doesn’t need any more bad press. I’m not too old to realize that.

  4. Yes, I do realize that. Sorry if it came across like “you’re too old” I didnt mean it like that, I should have worded that differently. You are correct, they just keep giving us reasons to say “I told you so”. I’m not a huge rap fanatic or anything but I do enjoy a B.I.G. song every once in a while.How can you argue with lyrics like this?? HA!! Hold on while I get a brown bag for this 40 oz.*************”Got no rings and shit, just my main squeezeCome into the crib, even had a set a keysDuring the days you helped me bag up my nickelsIn the process, I admit, I tricked a littleBut you was my bitch, the one who’d never snitchLove me when I’m broke or when I’m filthy fuckin richAnd I admit, when the time is right, the wine is rightI treat you right, you talk slick, I beat you right”

  5. I have to disagree with your UB. “Biggie” was not an innovater and talented. He was a thug. But then, I have that opinion of most rap and hip hop – anyone who sings about “bitches” and “hos”, sex and drugs in such a way doesn’t deserve to be listened to.Now, you know I’m not a prude, but rap music? Hip hop? Not my bag, baby.
