http://www.lowendmac.com/hodges/06/0505.html is the article in question. I was stunned to read this on the lowendmac list. Very insulting to African-American culture. I don't care much for most commercial rap but this guy hasn't listened to the underground stuff such as ATCQ or Pete Rock or Ugly Duckling (no cussing) or anything much true dat. Apparently the writer must be baiting African-Americans... apparently must be asking for a critical beatdown (Ultramagnetic MC's)... Apparently I thought that the prejudice against rap music was done for but not the case... In the words of Public Enemy's song "revolutionary generation": It's just a matter of race Cause a black male's in their face Step back for the new jack swing On the platter scatter huh We got our own thing Just jam to let the rhyth run Day to day, America eats it's young And defeats our women There is a gap so wide we all can swim in Drown in (uh get down) an get it Got it goin' on wit it Sister (hey) soul sister We goin' be all right It takes a man to take a stand Understand it takes a Woman to make a stronger man (As we both get strong) They'll call me a crazy Asiatic While I'm singin' a song Oh my god, oh my lord Word... life. I'm outty.
