Ever get a little overzealous on Twitter and, without doing some research first, type in @AZ looking for the rapper AZ only to come across one Adam Zygadlewicz (try spelling that shit everyday in school)? It happens to the best of us...and it's a more common occurrence than you think...and it usually comes with hilarious results. Here are 10 Rap Twitter Profiles That Don't Lead To Rappers.
Looking for this guy?:
You might end up getting this guy:
Looking for Cam'Ron on Twitter? Did you jump the gun and go to @CAMRON? If you did, you'll end up at Cameron Boehmer's profile. According to his profile, Cameron lives in San Fransisco and is DEFINITELY NOT Dipset's Cam. Judging by his tweets, it seems Cameron does dig music although more of the Ellie Goulding variety, rather than "Suck It Or Not":
Find Cam'Ron @MR_CAMRON
Looking for one half of Clipse?:
Yeah...well...this isn't it:
Lookin' a little more Guerilla Black than Pusha T, if you visited @PUSHAT expecting to find Mr. "push a ton", you'd be mighty disappointed. @PUSHAT leads to one Terra Reed from Oklahoma. Her profile reads "This is the last train to Terradise....either get on or get OFF!" Not only did I get off, but I will also make sure any trains I take in the future don't stop in 'Terradise.'
Find the boy Pusha T @PUSHA_T
What the hell are you doing looking for the third member of The Fugees?:
You won't find him @PRAS...but you will find this guy:
If you head over to @PRAS, you won't find the third wheel of The Fugees, but rather the guy pictured above. I mean, if this is Pras, he really let himself go...and is apparently now of Indian descent. Not much is known about our impostor Pras because his tweets are protected. Although, unlike many of these other accounts, this could actually be Pras. He's probably doin' a lot of chillin' and Doritos and Dungeons & Dragons are a lethal combo.
If you are looking for Pras from The Fugees, go to @PRASMICHEL...I think...you never know with this guy.
Stumbled onto Twitter and wanted to hunt down former Def Jam artist Jayo Felony?:
If you went to @JAYOFELONY, you'd be wrong...very wrong:
As you can see in the photo above, Jayo Felony, the man that made "Finna Shit On 'Em", is now a large Asian dude. Well, at least that's what you'll find if you visit @JAYOFELONY. The profile belongs to one Jay Alajor whose tweets are protected...presumably because the one remaining member of the Jayo Felony Def Jam club keeps tweeting asking when membership payments are due.
Looking for the rapper Jayo Felony? Visit @JAYO_FELONY...and help him out...he doesn't have that many more followers than our friend Jay Alajor.
Lookin' to tweet M-A dollar sign E?:
Sorry folks...@MASE belongs to the original 'Bad Boy', Mason Blake:
According to his profile, Mason Blake AKA @MASE is a "Music Freak, Internet Junkie, JamBase Lead Engineer." He looks like Jesus in his avatar, but I bet Mason Blake knows about goin' out and heading west in a red Lex with TV's all up in the head rest...actually probably not.
Looking for Bad Boy's Ma$e? Visit @SAINTMASON?
Uhhhhh...this is the wrong batter:
Yeah the pic is small and grainy, but I damn sure know @NELLY isn't Nelly. Actually, @NELLY appears to be a girl named Alice from Wellington, New Zealand (THE HOME OF HIP-HOP). It seems our friend Alice has had some problems in the past with people thinking she was the rapper from the 'Lou...her profile reads:
"Sorry, I don't rap or sing. I'll make you a cup of tea if you like though."
Sorry Alice, we prefer pimp juice...but thanks anyways.
Looking for the Lunatic Nelly? @NELLY_MO
"Tighter than the pants on will.i.am":
HOLY SHIT...@WILLIAM IS A PIRATE!:
Honest mistake here people. It seems some guy named William grabbed the twitter handle @WILLIAM...not knowing that the frontman for one of the biggest bands in the world (and the guy with the tightest jeans in the land) may want something simplistic for Twitter so 14-year-old white girls would know where to find him.
Looking for the creator of "Songs About Girls?" @IAMWILL
Fox boogie brown is bad as hell:
That she is...but this aint her:
Meet @FOXYBROWN AKA Carol Osborne-Bowen. Carol has only sent one tweet on Twitter...here it is:
Women cheating on husband— Carol Osborne-Bowen (@foxybrown) November 7, 2011
Not sure what that means...but I do know this is not Fox Boogie Brown. Looks more like Popeye Jones:
Foxy Brown (the one that is "bad as hell") can be found @FOXYDONDIVA
Lookin' for that hustla Cassidy?:
Know who else is a hustla? @CASSIDY:
Head on over to @CASSIDY and you won't find Barry Adrian Reese but rather that dude Guillaume. Judging by his tweets, it seems Guillaume digs pizza and board games. In other words, this dude gets ALL the chicks.
Lookin' for Kross Over Entertainment's Cassidy? Peep @CASSIDY_LARSINY...and keep it gutta like Guillaume.
Mack's bringin' that brand new flava in ya ear:
Wow...Craig Mack's skin has really improved over the years...although it comes at the expense of looking like an older white man:
If you click on over to @CRAIGMACK expecting to find the ORIGINAL Bad Boy and creator of "Flava In Ya Ear", you'll be sorely disappointed...what you will find is a guy named Craig from Edinburgh whose stated goal is "Making carbon performance visible" and shit. Our friend Craig hasn't tweeted in a LONG ASS TIME...but here's a sample:
Reading about why carbon markets may not be such a good idea http://bit.ly/34Y1— CraigMack (@CraigMack) April 13, 2009
The Bad Boy Craig Mack is straight Jimmy Hoffa status these days (and I don't mean dead...at least I don't think so...but rather missing). Believe it or not, a dedicated person actually maintains a Craig Mack fan profile on Twitter @CRAIGMACKFAN...and apparently there is a rumor that Craig Mack now lives in a cult? FUNK DA WORLD:
