Chris Schonberger, a columnist at High Snobiety, has informed us that finally Rap City will be pulling its plug and Im sure that no one gives a shit about that show anyways now though due to the flashy and non-talented artist that have came there throughout the recent years of the show.
Im a hip-hop fan from the time I was able to understand the human language..no shit. But, I remember coming home from school and tuning into this show and seeing the first host Chris Thomas and then on to Joe Clair, Big Lez and from there Big Tigga and now its some no namer who had its claim to fame from Myspace or some shit. For whatever its worth, this show used to be on for 2hrs a day and then on Wednesdays they'd play old school hip-hop music videos and whatnot and now I think its on for an hour and its nothing but Lil Wayne and other glamorous bullshit rap music.
Im actually glad this show is ending, now they can't show dumb ass rap videos in the afternoon that influence teenagers to become what they see and hear on television and think that its an easy task to become a one hit wonder with an effortless chorus and dance moves. All due respect to the pioneers of that show and the concept behind but like I stated...good fucking riddens.

Jim Jones is claiming that he and the Byrdgang/Dipset camp have more swagger than T.I and Jay-Z. After reading the recent interview about this on Complex...I have to agree on what hes talking about;
Jim Jones: I don’t feel like he possesses any swag. Not like that. It’s fabricated. They’re watching other people, then they try and do it. You know people that dress like T.I.? You know people that go out and say let me get a T.I. outfit or do you know people who say “yo, you’re looking like Jim Jones?” Which one? Lemme hear it! When the bitches want to fuck you and the niggas want be like you, who got the swag? Niggas with money and fame always going to look like they doing something ’cause they got the camera in front of them. But the cool dudes always stick out no matter where they at..
