The Pima County Fair Wants You To Do Their Booking For Them

Posted By on Tue, Dec 18, 2012 at 4:26 PM

Cmon, who doesnt love T-Pain?
  • facebook.com/pimacountyfair
  • I would love to hear T-Pain do a solo rendition of "I'm On A Boat."

Today, the Pima County Fair Facebook page spent the last few hours asking what fairgoers wanted to hear this year in their Hip-Hop/R&B category (if we're nitpicking, and we are, those are not the same kind of music), and were treated to the kind of responses you'd expect to see when you crowdsource on social media:

On T-Pain:

"I had a great comment going and criticizing the support of what i call GHETTO GARBAGE music but twice today my screen blips and i lose my post but i don't give up easy. So yes, why the hell support this crap, at least bring in someone whose lyrics aren't FN THIS AND FN THAT every other line. Or go ahead and support the FU g eff generation and the disrespect thats consuming us."

I will not support talentless artists

Hollywood Undead
(Note: This is an incredibly funny suggestion because this song literally says "I don't give a fuck what you think or say," and is generally awful music.)

A MILLION TIMES YES
(Note: Dan Gibson wrote this. Yeah, that Dan Gibson.)

On Tyga:

Get holographic tupac if it has to be rap

I don't like most of the artists you have - so I am not a good person to give an anser.

My 6yr old lil girl said Justin bieber! !

On The Weekend:

You guys have cap bands. Get some country or old time rockets. No rap crap

Blake Shelton

On Miguel:

How about some rock music??

KENDRICK LAMAR
(Note: This was on every page, except The Weekend, for some reason.)

I take back my previous T-Pain endorsement. ONLY MIGUEL.
(Note: Dan Gibson also wrote this one.)

So there you have it. The official Tucson Weekly endorsement for the Pima County Fair Hip-Hop/R&B act is Miguel. Congratulations, Miguel!
