Ain’t no rapper nastier than Plies. Degrading, insensitive, rude, reckless, but damn, we love every minute of it.

Plies

On Top Of The Game

With his talk of strip clubs, loose women, and his love for “Becky”, combined with those head-banging beats and his Fort Myers swagger –everything that this caramel goon says is as good as the gold on his teeth. Plies has done something that no other rapper has ever done before, The rapper/ writer has figured out the perfect combination of street smarts, sexual innuendos and sensitivity to keep his male and female fans coming back for more. He has garnered the support of the thugs in the trap house with songs like “Bricks on Me” and “Goons Lurkin”, the teenagers in the mall with “Awesome” and “Shawty”, and with love songs like “Medicine,” and “Bust It Baby,” he has won the heart of every female.

| www.flyerpromonow.com


Plies, born AIgernod Lanier Washington, is a Fort Myers native. After dropping out of the University of Central Florida, he founded Big Gates Records with his brother. He didn’t embrace his rapping talents at first, but at the request of his brother, he was featured on the track “Tell Dem Krackers That”– after that, Plies burst onto the music scene and hasn’t looked back since. Since then he has released four albums, “The Real Testament”, “Definition of Real”, “Da REAList” and “Goon Affiliated.” All with chart-topping singles that speak to the hearts and the minds of anyone whose been in the streets. Plies exposed us to real rap, and now we hate the other lames. But his emphasis on real has a lot less to do with his list of criminal activities, and more with the passion that he expresses in his music. He bears his soul on each track— which makes each song so easy to relate to. Tracks such as “100 years,” “Bid Long,” and “Family Straight” are all hood tales that anyone who has ever lost someone to the streets can relate to. His irresponsibility

in regards to guns, violence, and sex is refreshing. One song can speak about the tribulations of gang life, loosing a loved one, and then in the next verse he’s thinking about getting in between the legs of the next female. What the females like about Plies is that he has no problem spoiling his women with shopping sprees, diamonds, and trips across the world… as long as they put out. And that’s one of the reasons we can’t get enough of this gritty rapper. As he shows in his song “She Got it Made.” he explains that if a woman looks good, she can get anything she wants. “I’ma spoil you everyday, and have you living on the water. If you living with me, you ain’t got to spend a quarter.” If freakiness is the game, then Plies is the master. He has made a name for himself in the world of sexual rap. His sexually grotesque lyrics have been featured on “Daddy’s Home” with Usher, and “Headboard” with Hurricane Chris and Mario. We’re all waiting for Plies next single— the thugs need something to bop to and the ladies need something to drip to. And Plies is the only rapper that can do it all.

A weekly Entertainment, Legal News & Advice column from Shannon A. Ligon, The Entertainment & Legal Diva And on to some much needed advice... Dear Shannon, What is the easiest way to get funding for an entertainment project? -I Need Money

Dear I Need Money: Besides bearing a child from your favorite athlete/ entertainer or catching them in a compromising situation on film, there are other viable options such as finance companies that lend specifically for entertainment projects. Many of these firms are located in Los Angeles and NYC; however with an impressive business plan and creative project private investors may be willing to fund your project. In any event, spend time researching and solidifying your project so any willing investor will jump at the chance to be associated with your project. Never forget to network too, you never know who has deep pockets or be might a venture capitalist! Be Blessed, Shannon Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe. - Abraham Lincoln Love. Live. And Entertain, Shannon A.

RUNNIN' MY MOUTH My Obsession Antoine Dodson.

:

He’s too fabulous for his own good. If you don’t know who Dodson is, he’s a 25 year old Alabama projects resident to an over night celebrity who is now living the American Dream after an attempted rape on his sister. This neck rolling, finger snapping, body twisting, homo thug is my new obsession. Dodson has grown to popularity, and now how is own Wiki page, been featured on the Today Show and will be performing at the BET awards. Say what? His song has sold thousands of copies on iTunes, and is on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He rocks his trademark red bandana, which covers his beautifully pressed hair. Now Run Tell Dat Homeboy.

Don’t Be : A Barbie.

I know I’m going to upset someone with this one. But this is not a good look! The lacefront trend has got to stop! Sistah’s, Sistah’s, I’m begging you. The lacefront wigs, forever 21 dresses, and fake Louie Vuitton combination makes ya’ll look faker than Astroturf. Is Barbie really a role model? Barbie is made of plastic, she doesn’t have her own mind, there are a million others that look exactly like her… Come on now! Where’s the originality? Barbie’s attract Ken’s—and from what I’ve seen that man isn’t working with much. Ladies, stop being boring, and stop being followers. Be somebody, before I treat you like my Barbies’ and rip your head off.

Watch Out For: Kayne West ‘s Ego.

Kayne West and his big old head— he could fill an air balloon with all that hot air he got inside of it. Ya’ll saw him finish out the MTV awards with his song

“Toast,” about the Taylor Swift incident. In early October, he wore a crown and a red suit to perform his song “Power” at Saturday Night Live. As much as I hate Kanye, I love the talent and the audacity that he has. He exemplified this on his XXL magazine cover, which also featured a story about himself, that he himself wrote. I have to give him props though, that song “Power” is the most prophetic song out there and “Monster” be hitting. Oh Kanye, I love to hate you.

Go Cop This : Strangeez DVD.

Your favorite rap duo the Strangeez are shooting a DVD/CD series that will be out later this month. Watch Rod and Rude as they make their ways through the streets of Ocala. From the club, to the studio, to your hood, the Strangeez are taking over!

Bored of: Hip-Hop

Music isn’t the same without him! I miss my big-headed Martian. Nicki Minaj, Drake and the rest of Young Money are trying to hold down the fort while he’s gone. But ahem, it ain’t working. My iPod is void without his new music. Someone needs to get shot or something –hiphop is boring the hell out of me.

Guess whose dating: 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler

Rapper 50 cent has reportedly dumped his long time girlfriend Ciara— for a white chick! And not any white chick, comedian Chelsea Handler. Handler has made it clear that she loves black men, and 50 cent has a whole heap of issues— probably stemming from being shot nine times. They’ve been spotted eating at restaurants in New Orleans and Tennessee. Maybe 50 was tired of Ciara’s lack of style and personality disorder. Now he’s ready for that Becky. by: Attiyya Anthony www.flyerpromonow.com

I

waited seven months for football season to start again. Now that it is here again I feel like it’s passing so quickly. I can’t believe that two weeks has already elapsed. How did your team do in the first two weeks? In week one my team, the Patriots, looked good. Tom Brady played like he did presurgery when the Patriots beat the Bengals. However in week two they lost to the Jets. I haven’t seen my team play like that in a very long time. That game he played more like the recovering Brady of last season. It was the first time in his career that he threw six incompletions in a row. I am a true fan though so I’m not discouraged after just one loss. Lions fans shouldn’t be discouraged either. Even though your team probably doesn’t remember what a win really feels like there is still hope, and if all else fails blame the refs. It is the referee’s fault that the Lion’s lost their season opener to the Bears. Calvin Johnson caught a pass from Shaun Hill with 31 seconds left in the game for what would have been the game winning touchdown. The refs ruled it incomplete because when Johnson stood up to celebrate he dropped the ball. It was clearly a touchdown and the Lions players and fans were robbed. Sorry guys better luck next time. Some teams didn’t have much luck at all, like the Cowboys who start

off 0-2 as well as the Vikings. When Brett Favre chose to come back for another season he probably wasn’t thinking that they would lose their first two. On opening night against the Saints Favre set an NFL record with his 286th consecutive start. His spot in the Hall of Fame is waiting for him. Maybe it’s time he retire and claims that spot. I think he is holding on not just for the love of the sport but maybe because out of sight is out of mind. I hope that’s not the case because how can anyone forget Brett Favre. Kevin Durant won’t be forgotten either. While he and the rest of the United States World Champion Basketball team were in Turkey for the finals Durant made a good impression among the Turkish people. Word on the street is that Kevin is not only a great player but a good person as well. At the young age of 21 he knows what giving back is really about, not about making yourself look good but about making someone else feel good. Congrats to him on his World Champion MVP award. While I’m congratulating folks shout out to Tom Brady with his $72 Million contract extension. I can’t forget to congratulate in advance whoever, if anyone, they give Reggie Bush’s forfeited Heisman Trophy too. It sucks that he had to do it, but it was the right thing.

30 Second Timeout This is for the Jets and their lack of better judgment. Several players and coaches were accused of sexually harassing a female reporter. They need timeout because they are professional athletes who were acting like inmates that haven’t seen a woman in years. You gotta do better!
