The Rappers’ Smackdown…

20070104t194128z_01_nootr_rtridsp_2_oukeWe’re not sure exactly what happened here today at Blurb Central, but it certainly was interesting.  Typically we spend our lunch period reviewing current events looking for something that is happening in Europe or South America worth podcasting about. 

Today’s lunch period got off on the wrong foot when Chief Student Editor The Hamster walked up to Blurb Founder Bam Bam Bigelow and said, "Hey Chump, you ain’t got no street in you.  I can out freestyle rap you any day of any week."

Considering that The Hamster is about the single most non-thug podcast editor on earth–and that he was drinking low fat milk, peeling an orange and eating a peanut butter sandwich with the crusts cut off–Bam Bam was relatively confident that he could win this Rappers’ Smackdown.  "Stick to Christmas Presents, Johnny Wrapper!" Bam Bam responded. 

That led to another Blurb First:  A Freestyle Rapping contest that would have made Busta Rhymes cringe…..complete with Spanish lyrics and Dr. Seuss.  Check it out here:

    BOO YAA,
    That was was way phat.
    Here I am chillin in my crib.. got my radar on…when I hears the Blurb peeps Fo Thizzilin on the Rapizzle.
    Gotta shout out for DJ Cash Money…he had me bustin’. First time I heard this cat and this thug is way phat.
    Hamizzle…Whoa, Insert Tape 3.
    I appreciate the effert but I heard 2 words; tomorrow n small. You be livin’ La Vida Loca.
    Bam gots some tight rhymes and I be diggin his peeps throwin in some crazee background riffs.
    So if you want my vote…
    I’m on the track with the Bam Bambizzle.
    Skip out.
    —this was a nice break guys! Often you take on some very challenging topics and bring up very interesting points on both sides of an issue.
    All of you did a great job and had me laughing histerically this evening.

    I, however caught only one word. Tomorrow.
    That’s when you will be better than Bam Bam.
    Dr. Seuss was always one of my favorite authors. In kindergarten my teacher was obsessed with him. (Green Eggs and Ham was one of her favorites as well as mine.)
    Maybe later the Hamster should try in an understandable language like Russian, Finnish, or German.
    P.S. Next time try a country music song.

    Yo, I Have to disagree with Skip Rope. The Ham has got some sick beats. That was a very good show-down. Bam Bam, I am very sorry to tell you that your wrap was not a rap. It was a book in rap form but was not a rap. You could do beter than that, I know you could. I mean that you could at least a rap not a book. It was kind of scary to hear that. The Ham got the vote for me. Sorry Bam Bam! Not!

  5. mini-me says:

    Bam Bam definitely did better than the hamster. Bam Bam gets my vote. He should do some more docter seuss raps. They are funny. If the hamster did a translation of his rap in english, then he might have had a chance. Also bertie botts every flavored beans, it doesnt matter that Bam Bam rapped out of a book. Its still a rap.
    Anyway, good job Bam Bam.

  7. Happy feet says:

    Hamster rocks bam bam did not even rap what the heck was he attempting to do?

  8. minnie mouse's mom says:

    Yo, blurb-peeps.
    I may be old, or so they say,
    But I could rap, back in my day,
    If it were up to me, I’d give first place
    To da Hamsta’ rappa, Seuss was a disgrace. (well, not a disgrace really, but it rhymed).
    Yo yo, from Minnie Mouse’s Mama

  9. Happy feets brother says:

    Seuss’s sissy beats Hamster all the way

  10. Pooh Bear says:

    I think Ham has got skills! I’d like to see Bam Bam try and rap in Spanish! Anyone can rap Dr. Suess, but it takes someone with skills to rap in Spanish! Bam Bam, I have to give this one to Ham! I don’t think anyone could out-rap Ham! He has got some mad skills! So Bam Bam, it’s YOU who should stick to the wrapping! Peace Out!
    -Pooh Bear

  17. bobs brother dude guy says:

    Yo man that was pretty sick. I mean da hamsta laid down some pretty nice lyrics.
    However Bam Bam had the crowd pumped up they were lovin him.
    But Da hamstas lyrics were so foriegn they couldn’t possibly be in da hiz house.
    I know it is about the hamsta and bam bam but I gotta give some props to dj cash money. He was the da bomb overall. As for the rappers i think it goes to DA HAMSTA bam bams lyrics were going with the flow of the street.
    Keep it up

  18. Nothsa0 says:

  30. Melvin the Chicken Hunter says:

    Fo Shizzle. That was some pretty sweet rappin’. I’m glad I got front row seets. Bam Bam had me movin’ to his Seuss but da Hamsta’s lyrics were off the hook. DJ cash money did a good job announcing too. I think Bam Bam’s language was nerdy though like: “I’m wondering what a corner is.” My vote overall goes to DA HAMSTA!!!! Keep rappin’; MAN YANA!!!!!!!
    From da only cool Homeskillet,
