You be the judge

OK, I don't know if it's because I'm a journalist, naturally observant, just plain ol' bored or what, but I often have my own theories about certain things in life.
One of my latest theories involve two celebrities that seemingly have no connection at all, but if you just took a moment and looked at them together, the answer is obvious.

What in the world am I talking about? Well, think about those movies or TV shows where every person has a twin somewhere in another part of the country or even a whole 'nother country. Like The Patty Duke Show. (Ok, I know I took it back with that one.) Or even Sister Sister. (Think about the premise: Twins separated at birth who didn't didn't even know the other existed until they were brought together by chance.)

Where in the world am I going with this? OK, here it is. After much observation, thought and consideration one day I had an epiphany: "GGGG-UNIT!" rapper Lloyd Banks and UK pop/R&B sensation Craig David (You may remember him for that annoying song that for some reason was a hit several years ago "Can You Fill Me In?") are half-brothers, cousins to say the least.

I've known this for some time and although my colleague and Lloyd Banks aficionado Janelle completely disagrees with my theory, I know it's true. But to end this argument, why don't you all be the judge:

(NOTE:Pic 1=Lloyd; Pic 2=Craig)
Exhibit A

If that doesn't convince you, keep scrolling ...
Exhibit B

Coincidence? I think not.

Finally Exhibit C

Come on, admit it - it's uncanny.

NOOOOOOOO!!!...Okay, I'll give it to you (a little), they do look like they could be related. I think earlier I was just offended that you were comparing this georgous rapper to this funky pop star (though I have to admit, I did love 'Can you fill me in') LOL.
But I give up Donecia, you're right...they do look like half-brothers, cousins to say the least.

Oh my GAWD!!! Janelle you actually, LOVED that song???!!! Woooow!

Val Horvath said...

Am I the only one who doesn't know who either of these two people are?

Donecia Pea said...

Aw dang Val! Ok, maybe I should add an addendum of sorts to this one. Something of an explainer to help folks out: Have you heard of the rapper 50 Cent? He's a part of a rap clique/label(?) called G-Unit. Lloyd Banks is one of the rappers from that clique. Therefore, Lloyd Banks is a friend of 50 Cent. He has some music videos out and everything. Check him out on
Craig David is the popular British R&B/Techno/something singer/dj. He had a crossover hit about 4 years ago called "Can you Fill me In?" It was wack, but apparently some folks (i.e. Janelle) loved it, lol. A simple Google search would take you to his site or video.
