Hip-hop & male anxiety

Two bits of hip-hop/r&b media have come to my attention in the last few days. First give a listen to R. Kelly's new jam called "Pregnant" over at The Fader. (I've included a YouTube stream at the end of the post.)

Second check out this latest Saturday Night Live digital short featuring Rihanna. Look soon as I imagine NBC will get this pulled down within 24 hours.

UPDATED DECEMBER 7, 2009: I've had to replace the embedded video of the SNL skit twice already because of takedown notices from NBC/Universal. So much for fair use for commentary purposes. If the embed is down while reading this post, may I suggest clicking here to take you to a YouTube search on "Shy Ronny". It's well worth it.
