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.

Green Lantern+Russell Simmons Drop Obama Mixtape

Normally I would never advocate being involved with politics. And I would especially never advocate downloading a political mixtape that involves Jay-Z. But if Mkkkain wins we will be forced to hear a bunch of coward liberals complaining all the time about shit they have no intention of doing anything about. So I want Obama to win so that I won’t have look at most the political people around me as lazy, uninteresting and impotent. I am also voting for Obama because he got Young Jeezy’s endorsement. And Jeezy is about his people, his paper and proper mental health. Sidney Portier, what it do. Russell Simmons, and Green Lantern prolly have other reasons. So they put this tape together.
