So this is the world we live in. The worlds most successful rapper, who is married to the worlds most successful female RnB singer (and Trey Songz) head to the White House. Moments before Obama walks in the room, a picture is taken and how do we find out..? Via Twitter. Nobody is safe from the TwitPics. Spotted via RapRadar, source was Linda on Twitter.
A real little indie gem I found on YouTube. Very nicely written piece.
I love how these guys have taken this so far. Hilarious.
Culprit’s number one and two, Megan the host and Michelle Malkin.
Firstly, what the F*** is ‘post-racial’? Are we to assume that just because America elected a (half) black president that racial issues are somehow a thing of the past? And that Jeezy and Hov are not letting racism die because of a song that is empowering to some, but strikes fear into those that can’t even hear rap words without subtitles?
Let me re-state. Young Jeezy’s statement, ‘My President is Black’ is genius. It’s short, simple, radical and thought provoking, and that’s why it works and has made an impact. Following it with ‘my lambo’s blue, and I’ll be G** dammed if my rims ain’t too’ is some of the most ignorant lyrical construction I’ve ever heard, and Jeezy should be barred from rapping, locked in a cell and chastised by Chris Rock. (Jay turned it around with the car reference by the skin of his teeth).
And proof Michelle Malkin is a doof comes from the fifth quick fact that Fox shows on her, ‘Left Handed’. Is that the best she could come up with? Did she go to college for that? ALSO, why is Jay-Z being separated as someone who should know better? Just because Jay-Z has been accepted by mainstream America, goes on Ellen and was an inaugural VIP, that he should behave ‘housed’ in some way? This is the exact racism that kills me, and that I hope Obama can call it out and turn over. And how dare she use Martin Luther King as a support reference? I hate it when that legacy is tarnished as a reference guide to how black people should behave. F— Michelle Malkin; if she didn’t look like a chick who pours champagne over herself in one of Young Jeezy’s video’s, she wouldn’t have got the TV time in the first place.
And then, Bill O’Reilly talks his ish with Dennis Miller like some supe’d up imperialist frat boys – click to vomit the rest of your morals out.
Can I get a Hi-Five in the comments section!?
(UPDATE: Give us a hi-five, it looks awesome, hit comments!)
Here it is, proof that the UK school system failed Dizzee Rascal. NOW before all the other bloggers start having seizures, I love what Dizzee does in the studio. ‘Boy In The Corner’ was the UK’s Illmatic (yeah I said it), but I can’t help feeling that Dizzee’s boys were behind the camera making him want to front. Chris Rock said it best, Keepin it real can be keepin it real dumb. Plus, which comic genious put Jeremy Paxman and Dizzee Rascal on the same show?
These are brilliant. I have put them in order, with the brilliant MURS first (193 hits on YouTube at time of posting), then the hilarious, if not a bit Chappelle-ish, Mos Def, and Wyclef both after the jump. Hope you enjoy these, MURS makes some fantastic points….
A great friend of lovesoul, Pras Michel of The Fugees, chats to us about being friends with Barack Obama. The full version of of this interview is coming up next week…but for now… see this and VOTE OBAMA (if you are an American).
What do you think? You can also see our other interviews here.
Can everyone go out and buy Good Will Hunting on DVD this week please… let’s get this young man’s career going again. After his partner in crime Ben Affleck starting running around Jenny’s block, everytime time poor Matt has opened his mouth… well no-one knows what happened, it was like a tree falling in the woods, with no-one there… until this moment of brilliance.
Matt, we forgive you for The Bourne Identity, let’s all try and move on.
This is another exclusive with Lovesoul.tv. We caught up with our friend Pharoahe Monch, and had to go into the Obama situation. Here’s what he had to say:
If you prefer – catch it on our Blip channel in better quality.
“If you put these people behind a black curtain and disguise their voices and just let them speak their politics, and you didn’t know that McCain was old, and you couldn’t discriminate against his age, and Palin was a woman and she didn’t have nice glasses…and Barack was a black man…I think overwhelmingly the country would gravitate towards Barack Obama’s perspective and truthfulness… I still believe it resonates in the hearts and minds of people…. It’s a clear cut decision for me… I’m supporting Barack Obama.”
