This weeks topic on ‘Hip Hop Buzz’ I explore what has the blogs, websites and news that is hip hop related going crazy. This week it is RnB singer Ray J’s new song “I hit it first” in reference to his ex girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
The singer, who used to date the seductress model, dated Kim for three years. They are both best known for the sex tape that leaked of both of them in 2007. Kim Kardashian took a ‘negative’ and sensibly profited from the miss-hap and, according to celebritynetworth.com, is currently now worth an estimated $40m and makes $80,000 per ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ episode.
Not bad for a girl who famous just for being famous.
Since the sex tape Ray J’s career hasn’t taken a turning for the better. Ok, let’s not be harsh. From his fourth album All I Feel, released in 2008, which features The Game and Yung Berg among others. The album’s first single is “Sexy Can I” featuring rapper Yung Berg peaked at number three on the Top Singles (Hot 100) for six weeks. But that’s pretty much it.
Currently dating hip-hop rapper, Kanye West, Kardashian is expecting her first child with him. Which seemed not to sit well with Ray J, as he went out his way to make a song, have the album cover of a pixilated Kim Kardashian and do a music video with look a-likes.
Ray J takes digs at Kim in the song, insinuating that he made the Kardashian’s famous. Despite Kanye impregnating Kris Humphries wife, Kim was married for 72 days and still isn’t divorced, Kanye hasn’t made a statement on the matter.
This is the most attention Ray J’s music career has had in years. Kim is married to an athlete, having a baby by a rapper and an ex boyfriend who won’t let the past go…
Each to their own.
