Drama 2.0 Looks to Bring Rap Music to Web 2.0

Rap music has a special place in my heart. As a kid, I grew up bumping Run-D.M.C. and my love for the beats (and sometimes the lyrics) has remained. While rap music’s evolution has often sadly mirrored the increasing materialism in society, I must admit that I still listen to it and am often entertained by some of its absurdities.

As most of my readers know, I love parody so I figured it was time to write a Web 2.0 rap song. I decided to do it using one of my recent favorites, the Make it Rain Remix by Fat Joe featuring R. Kelly, Birdman, Lil Wayne, T.I., Ace Mack and Rick Ross.

In the Make in Rain Web 2.0 Remix, Fat Joe, R. Kelly, Birdman, Lil Wayne, T.I., Ace Mack and Rick Ross are replaced by Drama 2.0 and Web 2.0ers Robert Scoble, Pete Cashmore, Jason Calacanis, Nick Denton, Om Malik and Michael Arrington.

Natalie del Conte, (Its Scoble bitches! Owww!) You don’t have to turn off your red light…

[Drama 2.0]
Let’s make it rain on these bloggaz (Remix!)

[Hook - Pete Cashmore]
Yeah, I’m in this bitch as a blogga
Got a handful of stacks, better grab an umbrella
I make it rain, I make it rain
I’m in this bitch as a blogga
Got a handful of stacks, better grab an umbrella
I make it rain, I make it rain, I make it rain on them hoes
I make it rain, I make it rain, I make it rain on them hoes
I make it rain, I make it rain, I make it rain on them hoes
I make it rain, I make it rain, I make it rain on them hoes

I be drilling PR chicks like Major Payne
When I make it rain, they be like “yo Scoble do it again”
From the Apple Store to the coupe, inside my gates
Up in my bedroom screaming each other’s name
They was perty perty, and I was nerdy nerdy
Lil’ iPod, lil’ iPhone now they getting’ dirty dirty
Don’t ask me what my name is, stupid bitch I’m famous
You gon’ make me AIM this
Leave your CFO brainless
I’m tryin’ to stay techie
But these VCs is a part of me
So don’t get it twisted
You see I order one bottle, then I fuck with one model
Then I order more bottles, now I got more models
I’m from that city where them bloggaz don’t play man
I take a chick to my room like caveman
So ask your girlfriend my name
I bet she go “Skeet skeet skeet skeet, Scoble man ’bout to make it rain!”


[Pete Cashmore]
Blat, blat, blat, blat, hey Drama let me git ‘em
It’s young money and we on like etelevision
Weather Channel Dot Com but I do not broadcast
I throw up more cash, and change the forecast
Your boyfriend is lame, I make it rain on ya
He never make it rain, like Sunnyvale California
Where’s your umbrella?
Now get your raincoat
Baby I make it flood
Now you gon’ need a boat

[Jason Calacanis]
Fresh to death on ‘em
We throwin’ money on ‘em
Stay fly, 30 inch monitors when we ride on ‘em
Alligator suede, custom with the shades
Make it snow in the launch party, bitches know we paid
Stay shy rockin’ Gucci in the Tesla (super fly)
Diamond Kindle for my broad on them 23s
Goin’ to the Crunchies blogga in a new fleet
All red doors up
Doin’ it like a VC


[Drama 2.0]
Come see me and Scoble in the club flossin’
40 cal in my jacket, 20 stacks in my jeans
Yo real boss bloggaz do real boss things
We blog that shit, you just commenting
Young Sam Rothstein, I’m with my goons
In the 430 down the strip I zoom
Do the IPO in January but it feel like June
Big glock I carry makes a real big boom
Make moves like a young tycoon
I come through like a young typhoon
Revision3, don’t be categorying me
These vlogga’s would like to get a better salary than me
El capitan, Drama Two Point Oh
I flood pussy clubs
Ask any Google founder you know

[Nick Denton]
Nick Denton get all the hoes
Gonna teach them shit they want to know
Like fuck that pussy ass 9-4
Girl make that blog a pot of gold
It ain’t no money like blogga money
It ain’t no bitch like a techie bunny
Ain’t no bitch gettin’ none of my money
That why the money got a password to protect it for me
She gotta blog for the A, comment for the A
Live for the minute or be out for the day
Post on the blog while lookin hot in stilettos
Gotta rock with a bezzle on the index finger
Boss bitch of the SoMA, my Spanish Julia
Talk shit to a blogga with the ‘blama beamed up
When I see her gotta handle my bui-nah
I gotta give her one of these in the back of the Valleywag truck


[Om Malik]
(Om off the heezie
Hey Drama, call Arrington up
Let him know I’m bout to roll up
I just ran outta subscribers
I need to borrow 50 thousand emails
Come through baby, make it rain
Blog post on the way to you
Gotta a hundred Blackberries for you
Triple CEOs
Oh yeah it’s the remix)

I be reppin’ my city
Blowin hundreds and fifties
If the posts right Om’s there every night
Drama I was listenin’, blowin’ up, newest RIM
Time to spend some dividends
My money they swimmin’ in
Om, I’m a boss (I’m a boss)
I’m the mayor (I’m the mayor)
Make it rain (Make it rain!), on these bloggaz (on these bloggaz!)
Get your umbrella fella
Cause we blowin’ hella chedda
I’m the blogga that you scared of
Cause no one can post it better

[Michael Arrington]
Mike A., early 80s
VC’s daddy paid me
Porsche Boxter, fly Mercedes
Post that, click it baby
Them perty Israelis, they drive me crazy
Them skies is hazy, I Digg like 80
Somebody tell Mr. Google to bring his umbrella
IPO not, it’s just a one fella
Who got dumb chedda, and need a brain surgeon
Got me a designated typist, cause my hand’s hurtin’
I make it rain, it’s TechCrunch bitch
It’s not a game, them 30-something bloggaz rich
Ain’t nothing wrong with wanting a little happy ending
And we don’t need a TechCrunch party
We parkin’ lot pimpin’


I offer an open invitation to Robert Scoble, Pete Cashmore, Jason Calacanis, Nick Denton, Om Malik and Michael Arrington to make this happen!

    I would have thought you should use that photo of arrington smoking a cigar he lit up with a few benjamins?…

    Surely that’s “bling” enough?

    The problem is that real boss playaz aren’t into the Benjis anymore. It’s all about the Euro.

    […] the A-list Web 2.0 celebrities that I tried to get together to lay down a hot rap single couldn’t get their schedules to align so my chance at Billboard success as a songwriter […]
