Yeah, yeah, I’m late with it. So what, monkeys? Chill out. It’s not as if you waited with bated breath on this specific post in this particular pocket of the the blogoshphere anyway.
So, 2008. What a year, right? False starts, R&Beef, hip-hoppers getting their asses kicked, oversensitive obese people, an overrated superhero movie — where to begin? What was worthy of being deemed Air Conditioning‘s Coolest of ’08? You’ll just have to click ahead to see, homie!

How the fuck do we 'posed to keep peace?
If only somebody had told Yung Berg.
You see, it’s cold in the D, y’all. “The D” being that wonderful and majestic American city that actually sits north of Canada: Detroit. Unfortunately, it’s not all wine and roses as evidenced by this video by rapper/singer T-Baby. This not-too-professional clip exposes the pain, despair, and utter hopelessness that a lot of the Motor City’s residents feel every day.
I won’t front, when I first saw it, I was ready to mock it, even if it meant getting my ass whipped and chain stolen the next time I was in the 313. But then after watching it again and again, the snark left me. Yes, the video is amateur and T-Baby could work just a bit more on her delivery, but she’s trying to get a message across. On top of that, she’s not fuckin’ waiting around. She got the video shot, probably on a VHS camcorder, and put it out herself. Hey, I’m a big fan of the DIY work ethic. Check T-Baby out after the jump.
There's more to Detroit than meets the eye.
Yung Berg seemingly has a habit of pissing people off, I guess. First, he insulted dark-skinned females everywhere when he said something about not dating darkies. Now I hear that some greasy shit he said about Detroit hip-hoppers resulted in a recent ass-whipping at Plan B, a Detroit nightclub owned by rapper and Eminem homie, Trick Trick. According to AllHipHop.com:
According to a witness, despite the presence of his personal bodyguard who was also involved in the fight, Yung Berg was unable to defend himself and was reportedly relieved of his jewelry, including a multi-colored diamond encrusted “Transformers” chain.
