Gossiping Bitches

This site can get some serious laughs out of me. Most of the time I just smirk but sometimes I actually laugh aloud so props to them. It seems like they were on hiatus for a minute but now they’re back to it, trying to become some kind of über-sarcastic HipHop GawkerDefamer hybrid. Peep the excerpt:

“HHS-ychic” Hotline to Open

And I quote on 12/16/2003: ‘Okay, so Jay-Z may have finally hung up the mic for good. It’s possible, but don’t count on it. My personal theory is that he is going to take two years off, rather than the usual annual break between albums…’
