I've been thinking about blogging this subject for a while. But it wasn't until I found out that actor/rapper/clown, Joaquin Phoenix's documentary was actually being released that I went ahead and tackled this mess.
Joaquin Phoenix the very gifted actor, decided he was bored with acting and wanted to try his hand at rapping. Many people speculate this has all been a big joke played on us and the documentary detailing his road to becoming a rapper 'I'm Still Here' is actually a mockumentary. Meant to poke fun at hip hop culture while Phoenix and his flunky, Casey Affleck laugh at it's expense.
Then there are those people like Diddy, who say Joaquin really is a rapper. Diddy was supposed to produce Joaquin's debut cd and has produced at least one song for Phoenix.
"Joaquin's for real," Diddy told MTV. "If he's not for real, he tricked me, we went into the studio, did a record, mixed a record and everything."
That's an official co-sign from the man that has worked on records with Notorious, B.I.G, Mary J Blage, The Lox and others.
So i blame all of the buffoonery in the videos below on Diddy
