I Can't Believe They Got Signed: Fonzworth Bentley

Universally known as Diddy's manservant and perhaps the precursor to Kanye's impeccable fashionable style, it was just a matter of time before Fonzworth Bentley was awarded his own record deal. He's been working on some record or another for a few years now and the song, "Everybody" is the first that I've heard of it.

I realize that it's all the rage to be somebody's weed carrier and get signed and put out a brick of an album (see: Rampage, Fatal Hussein and all of G-Unit) and at times they will eclipse their mentor (see: Jim Jones, The Game). Manservants, particularly of Bentley's fantastic demeanor, don't really fit into this category; and it doesn't mean that homedude should have his own album, either.

Not to say that "Everybody" sucks because it doesn't. It's just a really weak song that reminds me of the Soul Glo song from "Coming to America," or a random Ready for the World song.
