Not that Hip-Hop necessarily has a political stance. But when some of rap music’s early seminal moments were defined by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Run DMC, Public Enemy and KRS-ONE launching bombs at Reagan-era politics, this shit is disgusting. I think rappers need to consider issuing death-sentence Fatwas on muhfuckers who disrespect the art like this.
What’s not surprising is that this is probably the worst attempt at rapping. Ever. What is surprising is that it is not a parody. I don’t know if this is a part of Michael Steele’s attempt to “take the heezy it to the suburban urban streets” or whatever the fuck he’s trying to do. But I think even Rush Limbaugh, in the throes of a vicodin bender, would be embarrassed of this shit.
If I were Barack Obama, I’d release this statement:
“Seriously? This shit? You want me to comment on this shit? Fuck. Ok…. Uh.. look… The only good thing about this shit is that it ends at 3:36 not 4:38. And what the fuck is that Superman shit at 2:52? I love how conservatives try to paint me as a socialist, not really knowing what a socialist is. Meanwhile under previous Republican administrations, corporate and elite ‘socialism’ ran unchecked with the richest individuals and businesses getting massive tax cuts to supposedly benefit the country and our economy. You all know how that turned out. And why the fuck is everyone jocking Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged? I guarantee you that less than 1% of the assholes who talk all that John Galt shit have actually read the book. I know cuz I’m yet to finish it and I ain’t no fucking joke. Oh and FUCK yo iPod jokes.”
