People All Over The World..."Derailed?? - Part 2"

"Soul Train done lost their soul......." -Ice Cube.

Last night, I saw the worse black ceremony since 1999's Source Awards. That's right folks, The Soul Train Awards, sponsored by S-Curl and Coca Cola (As usual). What a waste of 2 hrs!!

Nothing special happened this year in Los Angeles. Ok, I admit I was proud that Jermaine Dupri got the long overdue Quincy Jones Award, that took the "Sample King" Puffy, Diddy, Sean (whatever), only 3 years to be rewarded since the beginning of his career. I found out that "Chicken Noodle Soup" won. For what, I don't know but who cares!! Well, I do because they don't deserve it. This is a prime example of how people just like you are brainwashed by the bullsh*t released by the powers that be in this business called music, "TURN OFF THE RADIO!!!".

Other winners who didn't deserve it were Beyonce for "Irreplacable" which won over Mary J Blige's powerful and meaningful "Take Me As I Am". Let not forget the beautiful Jennifer Hudson, who can overshine Beyonce's voice in her sleep. She made history as a rookie in her first supporting acting role in Dreamgirls (and yes she really did her thing!), but she got the Sammy Davis Jr award. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Mr. Davis Jr a ENTERTAINER with a career that spanned over 50 years? No disrespect Jennifer, but you haven't been in the spotlight for 6 months!
