Obama & Nicki MInaj Address Minaj’s Alleged Mitt Romney Endorsement

YouTube Preview Image

Nicki Minaj has a line saying she is voting for Mitt Romney on a song,

Obama spoke to  Power 95.3 in Orlando about it. He doesn’t think Minaj endorsed Romney anyway.  Barack reads it as  role playing for shock Daymon Dodson style humor. I paraphrased everything so listen to audio on the you-tube above.

UPDATED: Minaj Responded on twitter with support & gratitude towards the president:

Video: Lupe Fiasco vs. Bill O’Reilly. U-mad

YouTube Preview Image

Lupe Fiasco’s song “Word’s I Never Said” spoke critically on school funding cuts, the War on Terror, Israel, Muslims that commit violence, and rappers that solely looking to Tupac for rebellion.

Bill O’reilly didn’t like Lupe’s statements about the War on Terror. So Bill brought in Fiasco on his program for a debate.

So there has been two discussions going:
1.How did Lupe do?

2.Did he do better than Cam’ron and Dame Dash’s infamous “U-MAD” segment vs. O’Reilly?
Obviously, Lupe was speaking more seriously.
But did he own O’Reilly like Cam did?

MP3:Sole-My President is Black(And that Don’t Mean Jack)

the gore vidal of rap or still a cornball in fact?

Don’t ask me why. But every now and again, I look around the internet to see what Anticon is up to. Well, Sole from Anticon has recorded perhaps the worst rap song in history, or the ballsiest song since ahem, “Makeshift Patriot” by Sage Francis.

“My President is Black, and that don’t mean jack” . Sole says on the hook of the first anti-Obama Hip Hop song, that sends up Young Jeezy’s Black Nationalist anthem. He makes a good point every now and again. Then fucks it up by either making fun of how black people talk or saying some shit about how spicy the food he found in the trash prolly is.

DJ Z-Trip: Victory Lap: The Obama Mix Pt. 2

Download here for all your celebrations.

Last week I was contacted by MoveOn.org to put something together for an email blast they are doing for the lead up to the inauguration. This one is called “Victory Lap: The Obama Mix Pt. 2”. It’s my way of congratulating all of us for electing what I think is the right person for the job. We made history and I’m proud to be a part of that. Yes, my friends, it is time to celebrate, but please don’t lose sight of the mess we are still in, there is plenty of work that lies ahead.

Young Jeezy ft. Jay-z: “My President is Black” in DC Last Night

YouTube Preview Image

Salute. Black Nationalism is the new Patriot Act.

 Today marks the official beginning of Barack Obama’s presidency.  The above video is of Young Jeezy’s “My President is Black”  being performed live in  Washington, DC on the eve of this historic day. The album verison of “My President” has Nas. But once again Nas lost; Nasir  didn’t make it DC, I guess. Jay-z raps instead,  jokingly saying “My president is black but he is infact  half-white. So even in a racist’s mind he is alright.” I still love Jeezy’s verse though for the line, “Be all that you can be. Don’t that sound like some dumb shit.”

 Congrats America. You can look at yourself in the mirror for the first time in awhile.

Hugs N Kisses Write Both Mkkkain and Obama’s Theme Songs

I just spent twenty minutes looking for an online flyer for Hugs N Kisses “Black Tuesday” Show. Eventually I gave up looking for something that is used for a promotional tool and set the flyer on the floor and took a picture of it on my cellphone. Anyway Hugs N Kisses are throwing an pro-government party at Carabar. Here are two songs they just dropped off to celebrate our countries’ political system. Should be funny. Last time I saw Hugs N Kisses, Donnie Monaco shit in a fishtank and yelled shitgaze.
