Bill O'Reilly is back on the Hip-Hop radar after going at Jay-Z over his new song "Off That" (sidebar: I'm pretty sure O'Reilly is the only person listening to "Off That"). After all these years I've come to the conclusion that O'Reilly loves Hip-Hop...he just has a unique way of showing it. Here are 5 Things That Prove Bill O'Reilly Is Secretly A Hip-Hop Head.
5. HE CHILLED WITH CAM'RON AND DAMON DASH
"In your record "Purple Haaaaze" I mean come on...Jay-Z doesn't even hang out with Damon Dash anymore. O'Reilly opened up the doors to the Klan headqua...I mean FOX News and gave Cam'Ron and Dash a platform to "discuss" Rap lyrics. This is one of the only times Bill O'Reilly actually let people finish sentences and points...ok to a certain point. Yeah he was still a jerk off but you just got this feeling that O'Reilly was bumpin' "Down and Out" to get ready for this interview. The obvious downturn of the interview happened when Cam started saying "You Mad" and letting O'Reilly know he had dirt on him...it was also the funniest part. I hope Cam signed O'Reilly's "Purple Haze" album before he left the studio.
4. PLAIN AND SIMPLE...BILL O'REILLY WANTS TO BE A RAPPER
I mean who doesn't want to be a rapper? O'Reilly is no different. Watch the following video and tell me this guy isn't one hit away from being called "B-O" and droppin' an album called "Billmatic":
3. O'REILLY'S PIMP HAND WAS ALLEGED TO HAVE BEEN PRETTY STRONG
Rappers love them some women...especially ones that aren't necessarily their wives. In 2004 a woman named Andrea Mackris accused O'Reilly (who is married) of trying to press up on her and then when she wasn't down, O'Reilly was alleged to have threatened her with his mean pimp hand if she ever said anything. It's painfully clear that O'Reilly was trying to get some of that "Groupie Love":
Next up on O'Reilly's radar? Ann Coulter...Billy's lookin' to show her his mic skills:
2. O'REILLY SCREAMS ON PEOPLE LIKE DAMON DASH
If O'Reilly ever loses his FOX News gig, he can probably be a Hip-Hop record label CEO:
Check out this clip of Dash and tell me O'Reilly isn't qualified...shit...he might be over qualified:
1. THE GUY LOVES TALKING ABOUT RAPPERS
If you hate something you tend to not promote it and do everything in your power to make it go away. For example, I hate lawn bowling. Why? I'm not really sure. I just do. And because I hate lawn bowling, you don't see me talk about it very much on brokencool.com. Again I can't articulate why I hate lawn bowling but this video might give you some idea:
For someone that hates Rap music so much, O'Reilly sure talks about it a lot. Here's a sample:
BILL O'REILLY ON LUDACRIS
BILL O'REILLY ON "NAAAAAS" (THE NAS TALK STARTS AT 1:15)
BILL O'REILLY ON EMINEM
The only thing that would make Bill happier at this point (besides some Whooty girl interns) would be if FOX bought Young Money.
