I'm no CSI, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to shoot someone in BOTH of their arms as they're speeding away in a Lamborghini.

Is it possible that a rapper could be LYING about the circumstances following a shooting? Perish the thought!

well, both arms are on the steering wheel at the same level, not all that surprising.

I can't help but think he's trying to pull a 50-cent on us, which by the way, must be true, MTV told me. Besides, who makes a "semi-autobiographical" movie about something that's not true?

It's a good thing Rosa Parks stood up so people like this could make it big someday.

Technically, Rosa Parks "sat down." If she had "stood up," then the catalyst event for the civil rights movement would have been delayed.

In all seriousness, your implication here is offensive. One black person does not speak (or act) for all black people, just like I do not speak (or act) for all white people. And if your statement implies that black people are inferior (which is a fair implication from the quote, although I hope you did not intend it) and thus do not deserve the same respect and dignity that others do, well then sir, I don't know what to say to that.

In short, Rosa Parks' actions (and her recent passing) has as much to do with Cam'rom getting shot as my collossal dump about 30 minutes ago.

1) I thought Jay-Z retired.

2) How do these 'feuds' begin? It seems like one side tries to get some publicity by stating a distaste for someone, and then the other sides cronies take things a few steps too far.

3) It's good he still has his jewelry. Nobody could live without that.

Even though DVDTalk is suspiciously lenient on much racial bigotry and intolerance in the forums, this is one of the most racist things I have heard on here.

I'm not a fan of this guy, but when I read the article I took it as the guy was just trying to blow the reporters off. To me he was saying "I got shot 3 times, my album comes out Nov 22...there's your story, now get the hell outta my face." Looks like he's trying to do the opposite of what most are saying.

I believe Dave Chappelle said the very same thing (or close to it) on one of his shows.

Please either send me some examples or post them in Feedback and then I'll ask Geoff and the other mods and admins to look into it.

I'm not so sure this thread is going anywhere productive.
