Swagger Jacking

Yo. There's nothing new under the sun people. Truly. I recognize that. Everybody that is doing something, is doing a variation of what they have seen, learned or observed. Artists of all sorts often emulate or find inspiration from other artists they admire. Writing is my passion. I'm not going to say that I'm one of the "greats", but I will say that I, like many people, put time and thought into what I write. That includes my blog. Even when I get an idea from a news article, song, movie, or another blogger, I give respect to the source. THEREFORE, when I see my shit get straight JACKED, I get a little tight about it. (There was also the instance when someone went to my blog and directed folks to theirs. Riley Freeman put it best when he said, "That's REAL gay my nigga! Cut that out!")

If I may loosely quote the unforgettable Raekwon, "I DON'T WANT NOBODY SOUNDIN' LIKE ME, OR MY CREW, ON NO BLOG!" Okay, maybe that's going a little far, but I think I made my point. There's room enough in the blogosphere for everybody. Doling out a little respect really won't hurt nuffin.

I feel this post 100%. I agree, if you give credit where credit is due it's all good. But some bloggers think that just because they don't all out plagiarize, that I can't tell when they are biting the f*ck out of my steez. I feel you sister..

i know zackly what you're talkin about. it's one thing to have people with similar thoughts, but it's completely different when you're obviously getting jacked. i was gonna blog about it as well, but decided to send a "nigga, i know what you doin" email instead...i guess i was feeling generous that day.
