wndycty is feeling very militant and dedicates a song to Obama & Wright: Don't Believe The Hype!
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 11:08 AM by wndycty
This Wright shit has worked my last nerve. Last night as I was listening to my iPod I stumbled across an oldie but a goodie that really speaks to the current MANUFACTURED "controversy" regarding Rev. Wright.

Folks who know and love the song you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. Those of you unfamiliar with it check out the lyrics and listen to it via the link I provided.

This speaks to the anger I feel today, it speaks to the anger I had in the late 80's when the song came out and I was a college student who was realizing for the 1st time this world was not fair. Obama did the right thing by distancing himself, but its only right because it limits the political damage. I see folks talking about Wright's "hate speech" but there is no there, there.

Its as if those who want to exploit this MANUFACTURED scandal, regardless if its the right, MSM or Clinton supporters, are saying "Ni$$er we ain't about to let your Black ass ever be president and we will do ANYTHING, including divide this country to deny you!"

Obama is not an ANGRY BLACK MAN (But today I am!), but every fucking effort is being made to paint him as one by focusing on Wright. Think about this shit Obama has no connection to Farrakhan YET he is forced to denounce him. He is being forced to denounce his minister, he is being forced to separate himself from his church.

Wright speaks a truth to power that is INCENDIARY but not racist or anti-American. Obama is doing the right thing, because he has his eyes on the prize, but for Wright to the be made into an issue when Republicans have fucking embraced the likes of Hagee, Parsley, Robertson, Dobson, Falwell and Bob Jones is just FUCKING SAD. How do you explain that? Well there is only one way to. Its funny, in many ways the behavior of the right, the MSM and some Clinton supporters prove Wright's points.


Don't Believe The Hype!
From the albumn: It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back (how appropriate)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASjH7X-jAY4

Back
Caught you lookin' for the same thing
It's a new thing check out this I bring
Uh Oh the roll below the level
'Cause I'm livin' low next to the bass C'mon
Turn up the radio
They claim that I'm a criminal
By now I wonder how

Some people never know
The enemy could be their friend guardian
I'm not a hooligan
I rock the party and
Clear all the madness, I'm not a racist
Preach to teach to all
'Cause some they never had this

Number one, not born to run
About the gun...
I wasn't licensed to have one
The minute they see me, fear me
I'm the epitome - a public enemy
Used, abused without clues
I refused to blow a fuse
They even had it on the news
Don't believe the hype...


Yes
Was the start of my last jam
So here it is again, another def jam
But since I gave you all a little something
That we knew you lacked
They still consider me a new jack
All the critics you can hang'em
I'll hold the rope
But they hope to the pope
And pray it ain't dope
The follower of Farrakhan
Don't tell me that you understand
Until you hear the man

The book of the new school rap game
Writers treat me like Coltrane, insane
Yes to them, but to me I'm a different kind
We're brothers of the same mind, unblind

Caught in the middle and
Not surrenderin'
I don't rhyme for the sake of of riddlin'
Some claim that I'm a smuggler
Some say I never heard of 'ya
A rap burgler, false media
We don't need it do we?
It's fake that's what it be to 'ya, dig me?
Don't believe the hype...


Don't believe the hype - its a sequel
As an equal, can I get this through to you
My 98's boomin' with a trunk of funk
All the jealous punks can't stop the dunk
Comin' from the school of hard knocks
Some perpetrate, they drink Clorox
Attack the black, cause I know they lack exact
The cold facts, and still they try to Xerox
Leader of the new school, uncool

Never played the fool, just made the rules
Remember there's a need to get alarmed
Again I said I was a timebomb
In the daytime the radio's scared of me
'Cause I'm mad, plus I'm the enemy
They can't c'mon and play with me in primetime
'Cause I know the time, plus I'm gettin' mine
I get on the mix late in the night
They know I'm livin' right, so here go the mike, sike

Before I let it go, don't rush my show
You try to reach and grab and get elbowed
Word to herb, yo if you can't swing this
Just a little bit of the taste of the bass for you
As you get up and dance at the LQ
When some deny it, defy if I swing bolos
Then they clear the lane I go solo
The meaning of all of that
Some media is the whack
You believe it's true, it blows me through the roof
Suckers, liars get me a shovel
Some writers I know are damn devils
For them I say don't believe the hype
Yo Chuck, they must be on a pipe, right?
Their pens and pads I'll snatch

'Cause I've had it
I'm not an addict fiendin' for static
I'll see their tape recoreder and grab it
No, you can't have it back silly rabbit
I'm going' to my media assassin
Harry Allen, I gotta ask him
Yo Harry, you're a writer, are we that type?
Don't believe the hype
I got flavor and all those things you know
Yeah boy, part two bum rush and show
Yo Griff, get the green black red and
Gold down countdown to Armageddon
-88 you wait the S1Ws will
Rock the hard jams - treat it like a seminar
Teach the bourgeoise, and rock the boulevard
Some say I'm negative
But they're not positive
But what I got to give...
The media says this

16. No. Life isn't fair, that's for damn sure. Are there double standards going on here? Absolutely. ...
Do people, of any race through it? Yes, some of have been around a while and see it for what it is.
