Grammar nerdery: The one where Will Shortz gets schooled on the subject of illin’

While I am often found stylin’ and profilin’ here at Buttontapper HQ, I have occasionally been known to be straight illin’ (as well as chillin’).

Will Shortz, it seems, has recently been schooled on the subject of hip hop grammar and usage. In a post I would have liked to see titled Bitches Be Trippin’, Gawker has the goods.

Hilarious quotables abound, including:

I would have to list my source as “the rapper T.I.” (although I’m fairly certain he is MLA approved).

What do you think, grammar nerds? Is Will Shortz’ dropping science, or is he just another wack-ass ho?
