YouTube - Young Con Anthem
"The Young Conservative Anthem"
As a member of the actual Hip Hop community, I'm willing to accept any and all voices from any and all angles...even this.
Having said that.....This can't be seen by anyone 'on the fence' wandering in a sea of confusion wondering what voice to listen to and finally finding salvation in such conformity.
Hip Hop is about expression, and its anti-establishment, so in that sense, these guys have sorta succeeded, I aint hating.
Its just that when you create, you'd better expect to be critiqued. And mine is, these dudes SUCK.
good luck with getting votes with this angle.
We have "Bush was Right" Propaganda rock
YouTube - Bush Was Right
as opposed to REAL rock:
YouTube - Bulls On Parade - Rage Against The Machine
and now this?
well, here is some REALness fo y'all....(explicit)
YouTube - Mr Lif - "Obama"
YouTube - PUBLIC ENEMY FIGHT THE POWER
know the players from the nay-sayers
this is easy.....
YouTube - For The Record: Darwin Vs. Liberals
Here's what struck me: not a single F Bomb or swear, no references to some woman's booty, and nobody grabbed their crotch. Two young conservatives express their views in a completely non-offensive way :confused2:
Whatever... the most laughable part was when the larger dork actually said, "you can hate me, but I'll still pray for you," and then went off in the next verse spewing about all the people and liberal conditions they "hate."
This video displayed perfectly the entirety of con man intolerance, hypocrisy and hatred in one cringe-inducing 3-minute faux rap.
Not all hip hop is offensive gangster/bling rap.
and some rappers that you would THINK swear, don't. Chamillionaire actually uses no swears, no crotch grabs and nothing about women's 'bootys'
YouTube - chamillionaire - ridin'
(the rules don't apply to Crazy bone)
Chamillionaire Aims For Ultimate Victory
"ridin" was my cell phone ring for a looooong time.
"tryin ta' catch me ridin dirtyyyyy"
the weird al version is actually just as good....
YouTube - "Weird Al" Yankovic - White & Nerdy
I thought the funniest part was when they mentioned the Fox News girl as their female idol. It could be worse I guess
FWIW Public Enemy seems to be more on the real as far as their politics go. Professor Griff (?) has a great interview during Obama Deception where he discusses various Hip-hop artists and their politics, which ones are "bought off" so to speak (he includes PDiddy in this category). If I find it on you-tube I'll post it, HD. There was another one too-KRS I think is his name?
Anyway the young conservatives vid: Eminem they aren't But apparently hip-hop is becoming a wider venue for political expression so we'll see. If Cheney and Bush do one, that's it for me:bricks:
If you think P-diddy is a REAL artist, check your burger king drink cup next time, and wonder why THIS exists.....
BURGER KING FLAME? - Body spray of seduction, with a hint of flame-broiled meat.
I $h!t you not, its BK cologne......guess who is making duckets off that?
and its KRS-ONE, who has some good anti-establishment hip hop, and is considered one of the GOATS ( Greatest Of All Time ) but...... even he has signed with 'the man'
YouTube - "Rhyme For Rhyme" Sprite Commercial
Prof Griff and KRS-One interviews:
YouTube - The Obama Deception Extras Proff Griff and KRS one
Love me some Griff
Best thing about most GOOD Mcs is that they use the voice they have and treat it as a gift. I'm always encouraging my MC friends with record deals, that they have an obigation to the movement and to themselves to speak about what they see as a truth. Thats why a group like NWA was so powerful, thats why a group like Public Enemy was so powerful. They were speaking (as most powerful FOLK artists like Harry Chapin etc . were) TRUTH, to a society that was shocked at how much about the rest of the country they didn't know about.
YouTube - Harry Chapin - Bummer (audio only)
this jam always gets me as a smack to society. He left us too soon.
