Every so often we’re graced with the type of bad acting that becomes an instant classic in the Hall of Black Comedies — up there with Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. This week we’ve come across two gunshot reactions that compete as the most epic acting fail ever.
Which do you think is worse? And PLEASE contribute your faves under the comment section below. We’d love to grab a box of tissue (for tears of laughter) and watch more.
CONTENDER 1: Raekwon in Coalition
*SPOILER ALERT American rapper Raekwon dies in 2004′s Coalition. The movie is a “realistic” depiction of how New York’s lucrative construction business is shaken by non-union labour. Too bad Raewon’s death scene looks more like he just remembered he forgot to turn the stove off last night.

Mac Miller’s new soulful remix “Of The Soul” features veterans Posdnous and Raekwon. The track is from his debut album Blue Slide Park and starts off with Raekwon rapping: “smoke mad kush, always in fresh pairs, favorite kicks are dunks and fresh airs, cooling under the trees with trees, You know the kid, 4, 5, 6, dice rollers push a b*tch on her knees.”
The track is mellow and smooth and also a throwback to classic tracks. It’s a nice blend of old and new though I miss some of his more upbeat tunes. What do you think of it?
MTV has compiled their list of the top ten, “Hottest MC’s in the Game,” and they’re releasing each name one by one.
The criteria for the top 10 list are: lyrics, flow, impact, buzz, sales and intangibles. MTV has put together an expert panel of their most educated hip hop critics to rate the current talent and success of today’s top hip hop artists.
Number 10 on the list is Wu-tang Clan member Raekwon (aka Raekwon the chef). While Raekwon’s public exposure has never been particularly high, he is one of the most talented artists in the music industry. His album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.. Part II, released September 8, 2009, was critically acclaimed by all major music and hip hop outlets; debuting at number four on the Billboard 200. This was his fourth solo album along with the numerous Wu Tang albums to which he was an integral asset. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Part II reaches back to those Wu tang roots with raw hip hop verses and classic beats (produced by hip-hop giants RZA, Dr Dre, The Alchemist and Eric Sermon and many others).
Number 9 on the list was hip-hop heavyweight 50 cent. While he hasn’t released an official album since Curtis in 2007, 50 released one of the most impressive mix-tapes of the year, War Angel. The mix-tape showed fans that 50 is still first and foremost dedicated to his musical craft. Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson is in the process right now of completing his fourth studio album, “Before I Self Destruct”. The album was scheduled to be released in late 2008, but instead was re-worked and improved for the new release date of November 17. Like Raekwon, Jackson has the top producers in the music industry working on his album including Dr Dre, Timbaland and Eminem, to name a few.If the recently released track Flight 187 is any indicator of the style of this new album, Jackson’s fans will be pleased. The song has a classic 50 cent flow with a relaxed yet cold-blooded tone.
