don motswako and oop daddy's urbantainment - issue #14 - 15/10/99


check this out...

..."sincerely apologise, but i wasn't the only person who thought you were
of caucasian descent... ..to be quite honest a lot of us thought you were
caucasian...and were getting quite pissed off at having a white bwoy passing
himself off as one of our own."

the above was sent to me by an acquaintance in jozi... after i e-mailed
this person a picture of myself...

so there are people out there who think that dj motswako is a whiteboy
trying to cash in on "black" culture... and here i thought the name motswako
said it all... from this day forth i shall be known as itumeleng oa 
no.. no.. no... that was a pathetic attempt at crackinga joke...
i am a young black male - born and bred in a township called manenberg in 
cape town.
my real name is arthur van wyk... and if i've lived with it for the past 27 
so can you...

funda joe... funda!

the american hip hop industry has lost a vital media outlet when rap pages
magazine closed it's doors last week. this publication was owned by hustler
publisher larry flint who noted that there wasn't enough advertising being
generated to continue on. editor & chief allen gordon is set to finish up a
documentary on west coast hip hop. it is a straight to video piece that will
be distributed by xenon entertainment. gordon will no doubt continue to work
on manifest which is a new magazine focusing on african american men.
the premier issue looked sharp.

it is noted that there is a strong possibility of an nwa reunion. last year 
the subject was brought up, all the original members which includes mc ren, 
dj yella
and cube were all set to go. snoop dogg was scheduled to take the place of 
the late
eazy e . the only hold out was the group's producer and co-founder dr dre 
who was on
that 'been there done that' mind set. he backed out and the project was 
nixed. now it
appears he may have a change of heart. the group is supposed to sit down and 
talk about
this reunion in the next couple of days.

john was a clerk in a small drugstore but he was not much of a
salesman. he could never find the item the customer wanted. bob,
the owner, had had about enough and warned john that the next
sale he missed would be his last.

just then a man came in coughing, and he ask john for their best
cough syrup. try as he might, john could not find the cough
syrup. remembering bob's warning, he sold the man a box of ex-lax
and told him to take it all at once. the customer did as john
said, immediately, and then walked outside and leaned against a
lamp post. bob had seen the whole thing and came over to ask john
what had transpired.

"he wanted something for his cough but i couldn't find the cough
syrup. i substituted ex-lax and told him to take it all at
once," john explained.

"ex-lax won't cure a cough!" bob shouted angrily.

"sure it will," john said, pointing at the man leaning on the
lamp post. "look at him. he's afraid to cough.".
