Black and Yellow and Busted

Okay. Now, now. I’m not trying to make myself unpopular in the local hip-hop community or to alienate my hip-hop loving readers, because keep in mind, I’ve been known to dorkily rap along with a joint or two.

I once heard Nick Cannon call a song a joint, and I hope I used it right or I have just exponentially increased my dork-factor. What am I saying? I just quoted Nick Cannon. My dork-factor is already off the charts.

I know I’m a pilgrim. I know I’m in the minority.

That said:

According to several reports, rapper Wiz Khalifa was arrested for marijuana possession after a performance at East Carolina University’s Wright Auditorium on Tuesday, November 9th. The marijuana was discovered after a bus in which Wiz Khalifa was traveling was raided by police.

I just want to say this.

85% of Wiz’s songs are about weed. Every interview he does he talks about weed and how his mother here in Pittsburgh is a weed chef or something. Every other tweet is about weed. He bragged that he drops $10,000 a month on weed. He tweets pictures of himself smoking weed. He wakes and he bakes and he is, by his own very public admission, almost constantly high.


Like it or not, Internet, marijuana is illegal and you can only flaunt your breaking of the law, whether you agree with the law or not, for so long before the law catches up to you.

That’s all I’m sayin’, know what I’m sayin’? I’m just sayin’.

You know what it is. Everything I do, I do it big. Black and yellow. Black and yellow.

    Is it strange that I’m an African-American Burgher, born and raised from The Hill District and I have no idea who Wiz Khalifa is?

    well… color me shocked. seriously, every tweet he sends deals with weed. i was wondering when this would happen.

    “black and yellow” is a pretty good “joint” though. hehe…

    Even if he weren’t so self admittedly weed-positive, I checked out East Carolina U for graduate school and I have to say that the entire soviet block-esque nature of much of the campus would have compelled me to stay high while there, as well.

    Corollary: if you go on national television with your four wives, you are going to get busted.

    I don’t care if you smoke weed, or have four wives, but if you put it out there, someone’s going to have to bust you for it sooner or later. They can’t just ignore it. Sends a bad message to the kids. ;)

    Does he have the 412 area code tatted on his chest? Is it so he won’t forget or is that some other kinda code?

    Maybe he’s not an idiot, LOL,

    I don’t know who ( or what he is ) either. So after a little research, this clown could drop from the face of the earth in two seconds and;
    Very few would miss him,
    Fewer still would know that he’s gone,
    Society, as we know it would be a lot better off.

    wiz has some dope rhymes.

    now, he also has street cred.

    He’s probably a little too into weed.

    Now, I happened to have viewed an RT of his recently, and he referred to weed as “Murder Death Kill”. So if you’re out there reading this, Wiz (and really, how can you have ‘412’ tattoo’d across your chest, rhyme about Pittsburgh almost as much as about weed, and not read this blog?) … IS THIS A REFERENCE TO THE ROLE PLAYING GAME, “PARANOIA”? If so … omg, you know Paranoia, Wiz? How neat!

    Khalifa … Khalifa … used to play shortstop for the Pirates, right? Pretty sure they called him “Wizard.” Or maybe that was Ozzie Smith, they were both shortstops and I’ve been known to get confused …

    I had never heard of him either until I read that he has a two-night, sold out show at Stage AE in December. Go figure.

    I love these made-up rapper names. “Rapper KilzmyLandlord (real name, Irving Donkeybutt) was arrested today for …”

    Anyone else disturbed that the photo resembles a young Pres. Obama? Pretty sure BHO doesn’t have the ink, though.
