Contest: Who Am I?

5 April 2008 14 Comments

In a WWTD first, this installment of “Who Am I” features someone who first charted during this century. Will this rapper do it again or is he already a one-hit wonder?

UPDATE: Posting anonymusly is all good, but it’s a shame that the first person to correctly guess that this is J-Kwon can’t properly get his/her contest win. Fortunately, besting Thembi’s trickery is its own reward, so pat yourself on your mystery back and keep it movin’.

Best comment of the contest goes to KelleBelle for pointing out J-Kwon’s color coordinated sweater, mammal, and ashy knuckle. He’s working on new music so maybe we’ll hear from him soon. I believe that his 2004 hit “Tipsy” was one of the more benign precursors to the death of hip-hop. Don’t agree? This acoustic version should disturb and convince you.

    i’m gonna go with the “tipsy dude.” he used to have braids, but that does kinda look like him.

    whoever it is that cat is not a good look.

    That sweater/shirt/dollar store shades thing isn’t helping either.

  • Dara said:

    No clue. What the hell is up with the cat? Actually, that’s only one of many eerie things wrong with this pic. Too much gray: sweater, cat, watch, and I believe that’s an ashy knuckle. Way to coordinate dude!

    Dear God, listening to the acoustic version I’m thinking, is the real song really as monotonous and repetitive as that? But yes, yes it was.
