What an amazing tool this Internet has become. People have live-blogged elections, TV shows, sports, and public events. Now, for the first time that I have ever seen, someone is live-blogging their prison sentence. Rapper Prodigy of the group Mobb Deep is being allowed to live-blog his prison sentence on Vibe.com.
How cool is this? We used to have to rely on diaries and letters to feel the vibe of life in the pokey. Now we have blogs. Amazing.
In his latest post, Prodigy drops this nugget of wisdom, which is actually pretty deep:
"ANYBODY THAT GOT SOMETHING AGAINST KEEPING A BLOG, YOU SHOULD STAY FARRRRRR AWAY FROM THE FOOL AND NEVER TRUST EM’. A BLOG IS NOT FOR EVERYBODY, JUST LIKE RAP MUSIC ISN’T FOR EVERYBODY. A BLOG IS INTERNET SLANG FOR A LOG AND IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT A LOG IS—IT’S WHAT BOAT CAPTAINS WRITE AND KEEP IN ORDER TO DOCUMENT THE DAYS OF LONG VOYAGES AND TRAVELS...IT’S LIKE A DIARY."
By the way, Prodigy gets the The Serious Tip Seal of Approval due to his interest in the Illuminati, conspiracy theories, and his valiant fight against The Man.
Keep doing your thing, Prodigy. The temperature's risin, and it's nothing surprisin'.
