Besides making an @ss out of himself on VH1, the channel specializing in shows that MTV rejects, Paradise Gray of X-Clan seems to think the white rapper also made an @ss out of himself on Hot97 recently. I didn’t catch the interview with Flex (is this it?), but is Serch generally funny? He did used to dance funny. Anyone remember that MTV special where Serch and Everlast were fighting during a football game? That was funny. Link
“I am not insulted by Serch’s personal references to me, I am proud that I was able to grow from a 22 year old Hip-hop Promoter at The Latin Quarters with Jerri Curls and Hazel contact lenses (20 Years ago) into a strong Black Man, father of a College freshman with a 4.0 average and a High School senior with good grades. However, there are those from The Blackwatch Movement, The Universal Zulu Nation, One HOOD, The Hip-hop Ressurection Movement and many individuals who did not think that what Serch had to say was so funny. I know that he is an entertainer but not every Black man is running around with a Clock on his chest to know what time it is.
I am very offended that Serch chose to say “Paradise, AKA Professor, Chief Bubba Professor X-Clown from the X-Clan” when Serch of all people knows well the difference between me and Professor X. March is not only the month that we lost The Notorious B.I.G. March 17th is the first Anniversary of the passing of Lumumba “Professor X” Carson. Personal reasons aside, where would you be without Professor X and I Serch? Professor X was the person who invited “Pete Nice” to The Latin Quarter (where Serch met him and formed 3rd Bass). He is the same Lumumba “Professor X” Carson who visited Tony D in Coney Island with me and arranged for MC Serch to be released from an unfair contract that he was signed to. Lumumba “Professor X” Carson was also able to see through the curls and contacts and see my true potential, he introduced me to his father Sonny Carson, with an idea that I could use Hip-hop music and culture to bring young Black people into the movement and struggle with the same promotion/media skills that I used to fill the Latin Quarters every week. I think that Serch must have gotten a little too comfortable with himself to think that making a joke of Professor X or The X-Clan would go un-checked even after all these years.”
update 032807: Got home and watched the video. Serch loves Paradise, what’s the big deal? Here’s the video. Also, here’s an early pic of Paradise Gray rockin’ a louis vutton crown beret looking thing. Nice!
