Soulja Boy= Prisoner Rehabilitation…..CLASSIC!!!

Posted in Funny with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 28, 2008 by hiphopdemocrat

Now I must admit, Soulja Boy is NOT by far a Hip Hop artist, AT souljah boy ALL.  But the Hip Hop culture should respect his hustle and his grind rather than always dogging him out.  He’s a business man that entertains. Most of all he handles his BUSINESS.

I might be late on this, but I just stumbled across this on YouTube. Its the same prison in the Philippines that showcased their rendition of Thriller. This time there Crankin That Soulja Boy. Yoooooouuuullllllllllllll!!!!!

Check out the clip:

Perhaps if we implemented this type of program in our jails or at least within the juvenile justice system rehabilitation might work a little bit better. Or at least they’d

have a field they can go into after release. A fresh start as a back up dancer. If K-Fed can do it, why cant a prisoner?

Real AmeriKKKan Terrorists: Failed Obama Assassination

Posted in Change, Political, Social Issues with tags , , , , on October 27, 2008 by hiphopdemocrat

With terrible news this morning highlighting the horrors of violence, another story just broke releasing news that the ATF foiled an Obama assassination attempt as well as the attempt to kill and decapitate 102 other black youth in Tennesse. I can obviously say who-is-barack-obama that this is GOOD news, and many thanks to the law enforcement officials who brought these criminals to justice.

I also see this as very disturbing, and it hit on another issue that I have been thinking about.  The nation, the media have launched numerous attacks on the Hip Hop community claiming its responsibility for most of the violence and negativity in the country. Then I start to think, well with a story like this, what’s next? Will there be an in depth look at the evils of racism that obviously still exist in our society? Will there be a nationwide witch hunt forcing those that secretly HATE because of skin color? Will the media throw all of its resources towards combating racism the way they seem too when hip hop is the prime suspect? I HOPE so, but know that its unlikely, just as quick as this story came, it will be GONE. All they will say is, its just a dumb group of people that don’t represent a majority view.

I wonder what this would have been if this group had been Muslim or of Arab decent. This war on terror that we fight overseas war-on-terror against an enemy outside of our borders is continuing full speed, when there are still plenty of terrorists within the United States. They’ve been  here for decades, not hiding, in the open, terrorizing women, people of color, people of different sexual orientations. I want to know what is being done about that.

Luckily, this attempt was foiled today, but what about tomorrow, and the next day. These terrorist are  here, living right next to us, picking up their children from the same schools, and everybody doesn’t have an anti-terrorism task force to protect them.

Why? I Don’t Know, Just PRAY!

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”- Psalm 23

News broke this morning related to the Hudson family tragedy. The white Suburban was found on the west side of Chicago with a young boys body. HORRIBLE NEWS….and it made me just pray, because in times like this that’s all we can do, PRAY. For the hudson_wideweb__470x300,4families that are affected by this tragedy, for the law enforcement officials that worked night in day to bring justice and closure to the incident, for the supporters who continuously prayed for a small glimmer of light in this dark situation, for the victims of these terrible crimes, and last but not least for the individual(s) who committed the crime.

There’s a lot that we can ALL agree is wrong with the world, but when a CHILD is not allowed to grow up,  and is not given the opportunity Jesus the son of GOD died for us to have it hurts that much more. Everything that we fight for, within our communities, in the government, in our homes, is for the future. The hope that our children will be able to pick up the pieces an hopefully make the world a better place than we did. The value of a human life is  priceless, the value of a childs’ life, I feel, can not be described by any word.

There have been nearly 500 homicides so far this year in Chicago alone, beating both NY & LA. Not needed to say TOO MANY of those stop the violencewere children. So, what can we do to stop this vicious circle? What plan of action can we take to eradicate this level of negativity, and  unecissary death? This is a MAJOR problem not only with our urban black communities, but ALL over the world. From the villages in Darfur, urban communities in Europe, South America, Central America, EVERYWHERE. What can we do? I say PRAY!!!! Because this is a problem that has gotten much too big for us to handle we need GOD to take care of this one, and we need to trust him to do so.

With that, I would like send my own prayers and condolences to  the Hudson Family & the King family with hopes that the LOVE they have for the victims prevails over sadness, and the knowledge that GOD’s will is in action and this is all part of his master plan.

Everyone’s A Rapper!!!!

Everybody’s got a CD now a days, any two people can print up a few t-shirts and call themselves a company. Pharmaceutical companies are spending 10s of millions of dollars starting labels named after a body spray. In my opinion its just a glorified marketing campaign, exploiting hip hop. But that’s another blog

So does it seem wrong that what seems like 1 out of every 4 young black males wants to be a rapper. I mean I don’t think being a musical artist should be a job choice for anyone under the age of 18, not even top 10.

Yes, I am a rapper, and yes, I can say the last project I put out was the worst investment ever, only by normal economic standards of course. In retrospect that money, I feel probably would have been wasted in clubs or on clothes seeing that I was the least bit interested in financial responsibility, and still not quite where I need to be…lol…

Instead of seeing it as a bad investment in the music industry, I see it as an investment into my growth as an entrepreneur. I learned about general business, marketing, management, entrepreneurship, networking, budgeting, and a lot more creatively too.

So maybe the fact that so many of our youth WANT to be rappers isn’t such a bad thing after all. If we can use that interest as a spark for education in business or in entrepreneurship we might have a gateway for the future, not only for Hip Hop as a business, but as a culture as well .

“The economic conditions in black communities are such that people don’t got no time to be leisurely involved in some culture…..when young black people are involved in hip-hop, it’s for economic benefit……It’s been modified into business…..but people’s situations are very  pressing, sometimes very desperate, and people recognize hip-hop as a way to improve their (economic) situation.”Mos Def

Whose the Better Plumber: Mario Bros or Joe?

Posted in Funny, Political, You Decide with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 17, 2008 by hiphopdemocrat

So as of recent days a good ol’ struggling(making $250,000+ ?), middle class, plumber named Joe was injected into the election headlines. Some might say he’s the most famous plumber in the world as of now, or at least the plumber with the most political influence.

I beg to differ. Although Joe has managed to capture the hearts of a nation recently, there’s only one(maybe two) plumbers I hold dear to my heart. Mario & Luigi. They’re WorldWide icons, and Joe the Plumber wants to come in and steal all the shine!!! Not on my watch…

Now lets see how these plumbers compare:
