You know this has to be one of the most 'respected' terms in hip-hop, gangster films, and the codes of the 'street'....yet, I really doubt how loyal A LOT of 'folks' are nowadays...(like 'back in the days' were any better?)
Fo' real fo' real, let me just apologize for my never-ending usage of G-Unit photos, but at the end of the day you have to tip your fitted to the loyalty between 50 (Cent) and (Tony) Yayo...
Now, I'll say that I consider myself to be loyal...but real talk, I can't 'guarantee' it...but there is ONE thing that I guarantee, rather one PERSON I can give my loyalty to that is not blood-related (although I would beg to say 'brother from another'....)
Yup, YOU (B!)....and just realizing how much loyalty is worth and what true loyalty is about is cwwazy. Really though, think about the people that you 'trust'...can you count them all on both hands? Maybe just one hand? Maybe just one finger?
Regardless, I can't blame a lot of people for not being able to be 'loyal' at all times, the industry is shady and so are the people in it...with the passing of someone as respected and kind hearted as 'Ronnie Johnson', you really see the 'snakes' (on a plane!!!) come out...ugh...
So, at the end of the day, be loyal to yourself....and with that ONE person that I promise my loyalty to, keep in mind I've known homie for nearly 20 years...come on, you can't earn my loyalty 'that' easy, you better put in work!
Yes, yerp, chea....you really MAY have to get your lap top or computer screen close to you to make out that ill(matic) hairline from your boy, Ne-Yo.
Now, personally, I can only imagine the type of embarrassment Ne-Yo is NOW going through with this photo surfin' the Internet....now most guys could really care less, (EXCEPT 'Chelsea'...hey girl!) and I would imagine that a lot of girls knew what was really hidden under those hats this whole time, right?
But I will just say, fellas AND women, always switch up your styles, but if you tell the WORLD that you will one day expose your head and never do it, then you better have that Mr. Clean dome piece if there's something underneath it that you're trying to hide!
All in all though, I will admit, I have a lot of respect for Ne-Yo because I'm sure he went about this as a man...but geesh, couldn't you have asked those boys in blue to be able to at least rock a du-rag? Errrr...........
I reallly don't want to believe the hype, but got 'amnnnnnnnn, yo.
"Smirnoff Signature Mix Series"
Yup yup....take classic hip-hop artists (KRS-One, Common, Q-Tip) throw in incredible producers (DJ Premier, Just Blaze, and Cool & Dre) and mix it up with massive amounts of Smirnoff? Yerrrp, you got it..... Hip Hop......
But see, I can't really hate "TOO" much, because the idea is extremely creative.....matching these folks for the chance to re-create classics....
*Criminal Minded ------> Criminal Minded '08
*The Light ---------------> The Light '08
*Midnight --------------------> The Light '08
(Wow, I used a bit of space just to make those all '08 versions, huh?)
Well, look....like I said, I won't "hate" TOO much, but I will just put in my two cents..........
First off, please make your money...no question, but does it ALWAYS have to get tied to liquor? I mean, it is bad enough the 'negative' attention rappers get for just calling their albums a highly offensive deragotry word (Shout-out to Nasty Nas!) and then you have rappers that are blamed for shootings and other big issues...well, you know all that drinking and violence? RAPPERS! (And producers, too....)
Then you have to worry about the MESSAGE this is saying to the younger generations....the Soulja Boys and Bow Wow Wow Wows of the world........ See, my main problem or issues falls in to the message this sends...you know what....to ANYONE......fo' get the kids, yo......everyone sees this message that alcohol is ill(matic, yo!) because the big homie Common is spittin' a hot 16 with Just Blaze makin' it hotter.....okay, too much Vitamin Water in my system, but you know what I mean, maaaan....
As simple as people make it seem, really try and don't BELIEVE THE HYPE! (But enjoy the songs and videos, cwwwazy ill!)
Get familiar, (and for all of you below 21 viewers....FAKE YOUR AGE, yup!)
Can you believe it, it's REALLY looking like it is going to happen....you see, I have been talking all of this high and might, 'Let'em go, so what'....but fo' real fo' real, JASON KIDD leaving the Nets!?
Sure, sure....I'll admit, I'm happy to see Devin Harris and gang to come through and really give a lot of strength to my Nets, but my big homie Kidd? 'aaaammmmn, you know all of us light-skinnenned folks stick together.....and Harris isn't closer to my complexion than Kidd, kid!
Well, honestly, I really want Kidd to get a ring, and believe it or not...we CAN get a ring in Jerz...(ugh, "JERSEY!!!"...true signs of a non-resident, huh?).....so....here's what I'm saying.....Kidd, stop stop stop stop LYIN' and relax....lets go hard for this season and get traded during the off-season....too much hostility and other emotions are going through the area....
Come on, Giants just won the Superbowl, at least lavish a lil' bit!!!
But as Jigga said, "Politics as Usual", and you have to do (or SUGGEST) what is best, so I'm all for you homie.....you brought the team to TWO CONSECUTIVE NBA Finals, so you deserve to run New JERZ..(ugh!).....do you homie, light skinnnened brother to another, yerrp!
Wait a second...I mean...okay, I KNOW I cannot be the only one........really?
The Kanye vs. 50 Cent Battle is over? It's only been 5 months!? Were we just counting first week numbers, or overall? I guess 50 really WAS the smartest one, because the final sales will actually NEVER end...right?
(Just for the record:
Kanye West: 1,983,188
50 Cent: 1,271,763......)
Well, maybe I'm JUST catching on to this entire marketing tool but I surely can't be the only one, right?
You know it was already bad enough that I was nick named "Bibby" and was expected to play to his level when the Kings were KILLIN' the comp(etition) back in '02....but NOW....I'll have to hear all those things again since 'my BIG brother' is going to Atlanta....errrrr......
(laugh) All jokes aside, can you just picture how crazy we're going to do, now? Come on maaaaannnn, you know Bibbs is incre incre incredible! (Soo hit you with the stutter step!!!)
AND take in to account a few facts....
NJ: Point Guard J. Kidd is nearly Va-Moosh!
WSH: Point Guard G. Arenas....come on, he's a dun son! We got'em B!
BEANTOWN: Point Guard....SILENCE....
MIAMI: Point Guard D. Wade is still 2 seasons away from resurrecting the Heat...
NY: Point Guard Stephon......SILENCE......
ORLANDO: Point Guard J. Nelson...okay, finally some COMP!
CLEVELAND: ..........(see what I'm getting at?)........
Okay, rather than giving names and making it obvious that Bibby is going to go to TOWN with the Eastern Conference....I'll just remind you that homie hung with EVERYONE in the Western Conference....let the games begin, baby!!!
Please fo' give the wack-ness of the image from up above....you know I was going to find a photo of Yayo slappin' SOMEBODY...being that he just.....
GOT ALL CHARGES DROPPED!!!
Hey, you have to admit...this is PERFECT timing, yup yup! Think about it....50 loses to Kanye.....album has yet to go 2X platinum in the US, Young Buck is feeling like the abandoned step-child in G-Unit, M.O.P are ggg ggg gggONE!....and just about all of the other lil' things started really addin' up.....
So, here is my theory......
Yayo SLAPPED THE ***BEEP*** out of the lil' homie (fo' real, he was 14-years-old), got his man to take the "L" (Lowell Fletcher) and sprinkled a couple of hundred thou(sand) on Jimmy Henchmen to keep things quiet....well, that's just an 'assumption'.....
You have to admit it though, the WORST thing people can say about this case is...'Wow, he really did hit that kid...' and to use that in a rap song.....so much street credibility......
Okay, okay...a lot of you are thinking.....'Wait, he slapped a kid..come on GoCyrusGo......are you serious?'
"Don't you know that we kidnap kids? F**k'em in they a**, throw'em over the bridge?" -Biggie (Somebody's Gotta Die)
No further questions......but really though, I can't fake....I was a bit shook thinking 'Yayo already went to jail for a fake passport, oh boy!'
So take notes, GAME!!!
MC Hammer (old, retired, wack, classic, dancer, *fill in the blank*), believe it or not, has a NEW WEBSITE coming....or at least he's working on it....
Your own bootleg combination of myspace/facebook and youtube/dangwtf.com is brought to you courtesy of the legendary (and diasterous?) MC Hammer....
But real talk, I can't fake...the idea sounds cwwazy good!
Record your dance videos. Upload them to the site. Win prizes and be shown on the site.
Come on...as many people that think they can really dance times those that really CAN dance ALL on one platform...I smell dead presidents, yerp yerp!
Only time will tell, but going to the site and seeing Lil' Mama ('aaamn I swear her eyes win me over...) give her little challenge to users to dance to her videos...the site may actually be a win for the big homie...
The site hasn't launched yet, BUT already has $3.5 million in investors!!! Can't touch this, fo' real fo' real!
Reality Check: What is the last thing Hammer (Isn't it sad that for the rest Stanley Kirk Burrell's life, he'll be known only as "Hammer"....) was actually succesful with? I mean, he messed up with a soda ad(vertisement)....
Only time will tell, but this really might be MONEY IN THE BANK.....CHA CHIING!
Just fo' the record, I DEADED 'myspace'...yerp, yerp...(whew, that's off my chest!)
Okay, now there is TONS of things I want to say regarding this topic...so I'm going to have to really try to pull a few strings to maintain your attention fo' this one....
First things, first....WHERE THE ***BEEP*** IS EM(INEM)?!
Really, where is the big homie? From rumors about him getting his hungry hungry hippo on with depression to a borderline Kurt Kobain (spelled right?) situation with drugs, I'm so lost I have no idea where to turn....
But you know as messed up as it sounds, we just WANT him to release another album. And no, 'Eminem Presents The Re-Up' DEF. does NOT count...come on, Em....Hailey is just fine...now can you please get the album ready? (Don't hold your breath, Detox may hit before Eminem's album! (GULP!).....)
Next, white rappers...have you seen'em?
Honestly though, remember when Eminem hit the mainstream and white RAPPERS EXPLODED!? Bubba Sparxxx, Paul Wall, the white dude from P.Diddy and the Bad Boy Family album, Lil' Wyte, 6th Sense, etc....yada mean?
I'm ready to just yank one of these kids out of Harvard and turn his shirt inside out and bag his pants...PAUSE.....(Okay, I know that is 'stereotypical, but this is a blog....breathe easy!)
Really though, maybe hip-hop could really use a dose of white rappers? Hey, at the very least the excuse for falling CD sales could be them, right? Think about it......
"So Peedi (Crakk?) Peedi, how come your album failed to reach 20,000?"
"It was that white ***EXPLICIT*** ***BEEP**** rapper WHITE STEREOTYPICAL ARTIST that changed the game. He's killing hip-hop."
Yup yup....truth hurts!
Next up on the agenda....remember the arguments of Eminem not being able to be the 'best rapper' alive, but maybe the 'best WHITE rapper' alive? Geesh, he really does touch down on the mic (please don't consider 'Encore'...GULP)
Hold on...where is Vanilla Ice? TO BE CONTINUED (or not..hhmm.....)!!!
(Sorry about the 'stock photo' display on the above image, but I really had no choice!)
Okay, catch title...peaceful image...what gives, right?
YOU'RE GOING TO DIE..(PASS?)...smile!!!
Real talk, I read this one posting from adultswim.com saying "Happy New Year, in 30-40 years you'll be DEAD."
At first I was a bit in the "(GULP)" mode, but then I couldn't help but just laugh! Really...I also relate this whole idea of 'death' to what Fif(ty Cent) had once said...
"When you start being afraid to die, then you start being afraid to LIVE."
TRUE!!! Come on, you have to admit that the big homie hit the nail right on the head! Really! So many of us just worry about the future and fear having to die, but why not just really enjoy every day for what it is?
Okay, don't be alarmed...this is DEF. not those 5 AM religious programs that come on before the regular programming (i.e. CARTOONS!) or an attempt to put any source of organized religion in to your head(s)...but rather, just a reminder (or for the first time announcement) to smile, kick back and LIVE!
Really....I think (and KNOW) that too many (most!) people spend so much time worrying about the 'END' rather than focusing on the HOW (Plot, baby!!! Thank 'God' fo' college lectures and discussions!)
Relax, breathe, and do ya thing, do ya thing...
Back w/ the hip hop lifestyles and news tomorrow! Yup yup!!!
Can you REALLY handle the truth? No, really? (Come on, you're not even TRYIN' to get your Jack Nick impersonation ready!)......
I LOVE IT! Yup yup...I really do love the hectic schedule of 'life' but finding my true love (sorry Rosario) here on the gocyrusgo.blogspot.com thingy thing thing... It is here that I truly reign supreme and take the Prince position elsewhere (haven't seen hiphopdx.com yet? Those news stories I'm doing? Whew...you sooo have to catch up...)
"I got the internet goin' nutz..." -GOCYRUSGO via Paul Wall
It really is true. My feeling right now relates almost exactly to a quote from Lloyd Banks. Homie said that a lot of the ni...uhhmm...'guys'....that he was once influenced by have just let him down...so HE began looking up to himself....now don't get mad (Ms. Info, Sohh.com, .....Eskay, I'm going to catch you one day!
Really. You can't give yourself the title of being the 'Know-it-All' when you're actually just jacking news stories from OTHER hip hop sites...come on, maaaan...(I get my AP News Wire and Reuters game goin' cwwazy!!!)
Therefore, keeping things slow and easy...look at that above picture....think of me as Frank White getting released....
"You guys got fat while everyone starved in the streets. I want in. Dope deals at the park? I want in." (Okay, so maybe I messed up that quotation, but you know what I mean, maaaan!)
Ask about me, ask about me...
Is it too childish to just go ahead and say, "Told You So" on some New York Post-type stuff? Yerp or Nerp?
Long story short, 50 spoke w/ the NY legendary DJ slapper, Kay Slay, on his Sirius Shade 45 show claiming that the reason why Buck wasn't on the mixtape collaboration, Return of the Body Snatchers, is due to the assumption that he was still going on tour w/ Rich Boy...
Ahhhh, maaaaan, why do I sooo want to believe this lie? Err...okay, okay....maybe I'm a lil' hostile because I spent a blockbuster all-nighter shoppin' spree amount of money on G-Unit clothing just to find out that the clothing line is officially closing...err.....
Well, with all of that 'stuff' to the side, just keep in mind that the general, 50!!!!, has set the record straight and reminded his fans that Buck is still on the team...(speaking of teams, Shaq to the Suns? Whoa....)
As I have said previously, the mixtape actually has that good ol' 'classic' G-Unit feeling to it due to the absence of Buck but emphasis on Yayo, Banks, and Fif(ty).
Lastly, while Buck is still in...M.O.P are looking outward...with details still being kept to a minimum, the word on the highway (Internet, that is...) has become that they have no hard feelings towards Fif(ty) and that their time to really progress is approaching, just NOT on the G-Unit label...
AAhhhh, I say let's retire 'hip-hop' and just call it something else to gain the good publicity we're all dying for! Yup yup...
Yerp, I'm talkin' to YOU!
Honestly, really, fo' real fo' real...think about it....EVERY RAPPER is rich!? Yup yup...the 'goodlife', huh?
NAAAH SOOON, they're livin' lies! (Okay, let me really have some fun w/ this posting, aigght? Hear me out, first!)
I have yet to see a rapper, especially a new rapper that is non-mainstream (don't even let me start w/ the mainstream artists; Chingy, Nelly, Cam('ron), etc.) and ISN'T wearing some form of $100,000+ jewelry. Really.
First off, you have these artists which are usually STILL looking for a record deal, BUT yet they are stacked with money...clothing...jewelry...and just about every other visual item that makes any and all people below the age of 'realist' to envy and want to become 'them'...
Think about it. I nearly collapsed when I heard Fat Joe's "Crack House" street record where the chorus starts out by saying: "I'm sittin' on a BILLION dollars...."
Geesh, come on guys! (And yes, I do realize that my 'geesh' makes me sound like I'm copyin' Ms. Info's style...be easy!)
Rather than letting this short blog turn in to a bootleg volume of the New Book, I will just point out the main facts:
*NO hip-hop artist is reaching the 2+ million point (minus Akon, Kanye) in albums sold.
*Hip-Hop is turning in to a losing business, hence record labels folding and merging.
*Artists' debts are becoming more clearer (?) than ever!
*Albums are getting pushed back. Artists are getting dropped. Ring tones and other merchandise are making the RECORD LABELS $$$, taking away large percentages that the individual artist would have earned.
Get the idea? But even after all of this is said and done, we still have Chingy (although Amerie's presence completely makes the video worth it) with his "Fly Like Me" video showcasing him with money, paradise, and women. Even crazier is seeing Fat Joe doing a "Make It Rain" video with money flying everywhere.
While the ideas sound cwwazy 'Scarface'-ish, realize that neither rapper have made the 500,000 mark with their past 2-3 albums. Reality check?
Yup, frontin' and stuntin'? DEF. talkin' to you.
You know, I'm finally realizing that my titles may not really help 'you' guys understand what I'm really trying to get across....you know, "the point"...
FYI: I "TRULY" appreciate those of you who have been able to foresee (?) through my slight misspellings and graAmErr errors...(okay, not funny?)
Soooooo, the 'big' news is that I have officially started writing hip hop news stories (blurbs!?) on (PRODUCT PLACEMENT...in.....3....2.....1..:) WWW.HIPHOPDX.COM and to grab a hold of their readers feels great, fo' real fo' real!
Moving along...what the BEEP!?
Flava Flav? Yup yup...and this is NOT in reference to his 'Flavor of Love' show, but rather his own...(Alex, help with the drum roll?........).....SITCOM!!!
"Under One Roof" coming to MyNetworkTV this Spring 2008....see what happens when you support certain (bad!?) television programs?
So, Flava Flav isn't fighting the power anymore, especially when the power is paying to keep that clock tickin'...(ohhh, so clever w/ it!)....
Long story short:
Flava Flav is an ex-convict that moves in with his (RICH A$#) brother and causes all kinds of chaos...from teaching his nephew how to be a (wanksta?) gangsta to inviting his prison friends to the house....but WAIT.....doesn't this ring any bells?
"In West Philadelphia, born and raised..."
Yup yup....minus a good 12 years and WAM, BAM, KA-ZAM (no Shaq, really...), you have Flava Flav's bootleg "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"...look at the comparisons.....
Flava Flav = Will (Smith)
Kelly Perine (playing Walter) = Uncle Phil
The same characteristics and story lines seem like they're going to appear...one outcast brings destruction to a slightly conservative family...geesh, what ever happened to those good ol' Cosby days?
Be on the look-out this coming spring, seems like this one is a winner!!! (Whoa...my sarcasm needs a pinch of 'Finding Forrester', huh?)
Whew!!!!!!! Maybe the 'Giants' parade throughout New York (check the myspace for photos from AFAR...cwwaazy incredible...!) sealed the deal, but let me just tell you...
'Return of the Body Bags' = XL Rating!!!
See, the problem with hip-hop and the 'news' associated with it is that there seems to ALWAYS be (or have to be) some kind of controversy involved with any and every THING...
Rather than everyone being thankful for a dope album, the Internet sites are killin' the mood like your mom calling you in the middle of a blind date with the question of, "WHAT ABOUT (YOUNG) BUCK!?!!!!?????"
Be eeeaaassy, as T.I.(P.) would say, nah mean?
When you can 'kill that noise', you realize what you have upon yourself...a FREE mixtape (take THAT Canal and Fulton!) filled with exclusive unreleased material....none of those "Best of..." or "Top Freestyles...", nah maaaaannnn...
Listening to this entire album on repeat, I'm lovin' it mo' and mo'....completely makes up for the underrated Banks album, shaky Fif(ty) release, and silence of (Tony) Yayo...
With tracks equaled to R.Kelly's assumed girl preference ages..(wait, did that come out right?), the album does not give you that overdose and clearly slaps you in the face with that good ol' "50 Cent Is The Future" feeling!
The album starts off with 'Like a Dog', and you'd be surprised to realize that Fifty goes head first in to his verse, not taking the time to make a catchy hook/chorus that could incorporate a dance or influence radio play, and features drops from people like Mr. Snakes on a Plane...
Like I've said before, it may have to do with my preference towards the Unit, but what this mixtape has helped me remember is that these guys came up together, and whether you want to label them as 'still growing' or 'falling off', they'll be together 'til the end.
"First G-Unit break-up, now every day I wake up...."
Ahhhh, come on....you 'knew' it was coming, right? Whoa......I better diggity diggity check myself, huh?
*So what Young Buck isn't on the new, exclusive G-Unit mixtape, Return of the Body Bags, courtesy of ThisIs50(and Yayo and Banks).com?
*So what Young Buck's verse was INTENTIONALLY cut out of 'Feel Good' from the mixtape?
*So what Young Buck isn't even on the cover of the mixtape....right?
Come on, stop stop stop stop lyin'! Really, in the words of T.I, be easy pimpin'...really.
You know this is no different than Jim Jones only having Cam('ron) on maybe one or two tracks from his P.O.M.E. album, or Juelz not really having Hell Rell on his LP....
Ahhhh, okay..okay...so MAYBE we (me?) are a lil' scurred....
BUT...not canceling out Buck just yet, consider what Fif(ty) may really be trying to do....I mean, come on..think about it...
The BEST Scenario:
Fifty knows the 'Unit' has taken a couple of hits...I mean, come on...even the boss took an "L" to one of the brightest (and we're not talkin' jewelry) rappers in the game right now, Yeezy....so where do you start?
Take it back to those good ol' '50 Cent is the Future' days!
-U Should Be Here
-Got Me A Bottle
-Surrounded By Hoes
Yup yup...look at it from that perspective...Fif(ty) is just bringing that 'classic' feeling back...and he's def. doing a great job!
I'll admit, about 10 minutes ago I was listening to 'I Smell Pussy' (sorry, but that's the title!) and to hear how Yayo, 50, and Banks connected on there just felt so genuine. Come on, I know you guys love Buck, too...but to cancel him out already? What about Spider Loc? Mobb Deep? M.O.P? None of them appear to be anywhere close to the album, and they're all G-Unit branded....be easy, pimpin'!
The WORSE Scenario:
This all seems 'too' familiar...remember when '2050: Before The Massacre' came out? We saw the same things happening to Game...his lines were cut out of his own songs...(Hate It or Love It), and he didn't appear on ANY of those records...Buck, it may be time to kiss and make-up...ohh....just caught that one....sorry.....w/ Baby and Weezy (Lil' Wayne, all you non hip-hop heads!) and give Juvie a friendly call.....I mean, you've already gone on stage and publicly expressed your love...
While Banks' sales went down faster than J.Lo's panties...(sorry J, but you lost me after 'Money Train'!), Buck's sales did just about the same...HOWEVER, he went out on a limb to try and patch up things w/ Butterfly turn LA turn 'Hey Girl'! turn ex-Aftermath/G-Unit artist, The Game...think 50 just thought nothing of it?
Reality check....Fif(ty) bugged out and started beef w/ Fat Joe and Jadakiss for them making money and doing a NY record w/ Ja Rule...(okay, so maybe he also found the perfect promotional stunt, too...), so what makes you think he'd accept you (Buck) trying to bring the peace, rather than the pieces?
The Outcome: Only time will tell....but regardless, it sure makes for entertainment!!!
Come on now, who gives it to you better than me, baby!? Both (were) presidents. Both came from down low beginnings to the top of the chain. Both have seen the ups/downs and the 'huh!?s'.
Your history teachers owe me fo' this one, yo!

*BONUS EDITOR'S SELECTION: Amy Winehouse: TBA
I know, I know...it sounds a bit harsh, right? But really consider how things have been turning out for 'Weezy'.
"Lil' Wayne was arrested last week when he was found with cocaine, marijuana, pills (X), etc...."
This idea of 'partying like a rock star' may be more than just a catchy title (and annoying ring tone?).
There is, frankly, too much drug abuse going on. Now don't take me for the type that would say, "HEY KIDS! DRUG-FREE IS THE WAY TO BE!", but when are some people (entertainers!?) going to learn?
Who would have believed that the well-known Heath Ledger would have had his life suddenly struck down and by next month nearly forgotten with this high speed of entertainment hitting us?
The irony behind these deaths and injuries (and arrests!?) is the fact that these entertainers are (allegedly) wealthy (I'm rich, 'itch!!!) and find themselves struck with an addiction...fast cars, fast women (and men, hey girl!), and drugs.
Now of course I'm not saying that 'all' entertainers are 'using' (Can you really imagine lovable and adorable Lindsay Lo...uhmm....nevermind....), but certainly some of the most well-known and talented ones are...
Lil' Wayne, easily one of the best song writers in hip-hop right now...(admit it, Fif(ty)..come on...), is finding himself in the toughest of spots. Can you believe he actually went off on his manager for his suggesting that he checks himself in to rehab?
Look, no one is taking anything away from you (Weezy), but we just want to make sure you do well and don't dead yourself...pun intended.
I know we all want to party like a rockstar, but did you ever see Wayne or Garth ever taking hits? Therefore, who better than these two to offer the best ways to get down. "Party on Garth. Party on Wayne."
Wayne's World's Partying Like A Rockstar Tips:
1. Substitute that Cris for Sparkling Cider, saves money and you'll remember EVERY last detail. No mo' waking up with anal pain!
2. Groupie Love? Watch out for those girls, guys! Before posting concert dates, offer an additional 10% off for women that bring their Health Clinic check-up reports!
3. Marijuana smoke killing the mood? Too much second hand smoke getting you in trouble? NO PROBLEM! Get your Easy-Bake-Oven on, get those brownies made to perfection!
4. Cocaine and Red Bulls? Geesh, no way Jose! Break down aspirins to their core powder form, then get your Tony Montana on! Along with the appearance of the rockstar sniff, sniff...you'll also be able to clear your head from those painful headaches!
5. Heroin? Needles? Get fo' real, man! Still need that extra high? Purchase Guitar Hero, your rock star performances continue even after the show!
