Loose Links: Banksy Meets The Simpsons, BET Award Winners, MC Hamme
Bart meets Banksy, the full nominees of the 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards, and 25 lyrics about Capitol Records’ biggest Rap star of all-times.
Springfield Gets Banksy’d
Our west coast homies at BallerStatus.com discovered something we thought was pretty cool. Guerilla artist Banksy has a Hip Hop attitude everywhere he goes, and well, the mysterious UK artist hit Springfield. Check the screenshots and breakdown of Banksy bombing Bart’s world on this past Sunday’s opening. We still remember when Cypress Hill appeared at “Homerpalooza.”
The Full BET Hip Hop Awards Winners And Losers
Last week, HipHopDX showed you the winners of the 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards. Well, MTV News just posted the full categories of the nominees and those who didn’t take him any awards. We definitely are big fans of Lex Luger’s production this year. Congratulations to the winners and nominees.
Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em
Speaking of the BET Awards, shout out to them for including MC Hammer in this year. The Oaktown legend paved the way for many, and he still remains a top performer. Complex.com broke out a list of lyrical Hammer references, friendly and otherwise, and we enjoyed this quite a bit. As an aside, last week, one of our dear friends in San Francisco bumped into Hammer at a tech conference and said that he was one of the friendliest celebrities she ever met.
