In “B*tches to Rags,” episode two of the new season of “The Boondocks,” Riley’s rapper friend Thugnificent falls on hard times. His car has been repossessed and his entourage has left him to go find “real jobs.” To make matters worse, he tries to make a “comeback” album using nothing but Autotune and picks a fight with an up-coming rapper named “Sgt. Gutta.”

It’s a great commentary on the Ice T/Soulja Boy beef as well as addressing the frustrations of rappers like Ghostface who seem to have more friends on MySpace than in the record store. And you have to love the subliminal shout out to Biggie at the end of the episode.

“The Boondocks” airs every Sunday at 11:30 pm on the Cartoon Network.
