When are we in a The Recession?

by Mr Juggles

September 2nd 2008, according to Young Jeezy according to Pitchfork.

This Is Why It’s Hot: Hip-Hop analytics is a powerful , if nascent, tool. Formerly, the medium was known as solely a form of entertainment. The trend has been for leading hip-hop performers to make a transition from “artists” to “businessmen”. 50 Cent has ventured into private equity with his stake in Vitamin Water, while Jay-Z has been involved with a leveraged buyout transaction of his clothing line, Rocawear, amongst other ventures. We think it is inevitable that Hip-Hop itself will also make a transition, from “art” to “analytical tool”. We will stay abreast of all related developments and I will not stick my manhoods in the mashed potatoes*.

*Unless it will result in better performance for our clients or it really is that kind of party, than I will stick my manhood in the mashed potatoes.

    Good Question!

    I watch Deutsch and he’s like, “We’re in recovery!” Cramer fallows him with, “We have not yet hit it!”

    Who does one believe? Who has more credibility in such matters? Bloom? MSN? CNBC? CNN? NPR? Fox News?

    Surely, the people that ***content removed: considered objectionable by and dangerous to general population***
