The Price of Ice
Nobody out flosses Lilyan Tashman! Nobody!

Gucci Mane - "Icy" f/ Young Jeezy (mp3)
"I ain't sayin' she a golddigger..."
Back to the scene of the crime, to where a fool found love in a fit of laughter. This time we dug deeper, past the Code, and unearthed nuggets from a "one-note" past. High-class escorts and expats gettin' in and over sin: par for course!
Once upon a time, a Busby Berkeley Dream unreeled to that one (up) beat. Oh, Stephin, no need for the mellow drama; times haven't changed that much. Say hello to the new type of ice: from 100 on a finger to 250 in a grill, ab fab has found a cozy neighbor in ghetto fab. Appropriate, Hollywood's never been scared of swingin'.
"...but she ain't messin' wit' no broke, broke, broke..."
Thankfully, the modern digger can also lace up their mind before getting their sugar mama/daddy/tranny granny on. Bling: Consequences and Repercussions brings the noise (with Chuck D narrating, no less) on conflict diamonds and the repercussions of colonialism. In other words, it's not solely on Gucci Mane to know why his face so frosty (and thank goodness because any rapper that needs to be vocoded on his weak-ass chorus gets the gasface). Peep the full doc here; NYC will catch a screening at the H2O Festival next weekend.
So, raise 'em up, an organic Alizé toast to all my thoughtful ballers. We can still look nice; just check the ice.
Since I know you're all dying for something to do over the next couple days, catch Sides before it closes.
