Nelly has announced plans for a number of new business ventures in South Africa. They include the multi-platinum rapper hosting a South African version of the MTV series Pimp My Ride, along with introducing his Vokal clothing label and energy drink, Pimp Juice. Nelly also plans to develop an American Idol type reality show where the winner of the show receives a two album deal with his Derrty entertainment label.
Just what South Africa needs: pimp imagery. Now all they need is slave gel to go with their pimp juice and they’ll be as thrown off as we are in America.
Pimp My Ride in South Africa? Seriously? Oprah just built a school there and here hip hop comes fucking shit up.
Now should I be happy that black Americans are taking dumb shit worldwide themselves instead of other people this time or should I feel sorry for all of the South Africans that are about to put on clothes that Marshall’s & TJ Maxx no longer even carry?
I mean, I had one Vokal shirt from five or six years ago and I still feel bad about it.
I apologize to South Africans in advance.
