BP

Not sure how many of you like rap, but as I mentioned before i’m a huge fan.  It’s pretty much all I listen to.

Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek (a.k.a. Reflection Eternal) are what I would refer to as “intelligent rap”, meaning the songs usually have a message, and the videos don’t just contain guns, girls, cars, and other eye candy.

Since this is a gun blog, I noticed this in their new video ‘Ballad Of The Black Gold’:

Looks like a compact model Glock… not sure what caliber.  The trigger discipline is nothing to write home about, but I still thought the idea of a Glock dripping in oil was a good visual in the context of the song.

For those that normally wouldn’t give rap a chance, I urge you to give the song a try. At the very least watch the video on mute.

If you’re still with me after that, and you are fiendin’ for more I urge you to check out Talib Kweli’s albums. The new album, Revolutions Per Minute, isn’t bad.. but if you really want to hear some classics check out Train of Thought or The Beautiful Struggle.   Another album I have to plug while I’m at it is Black Star … it is  in my top 10 favorite albums of all time.  On that album you get 13 tracks of both Talib Kweli and Mos Def, who some of you may know from his impressive movie career (IMDB Page)

I think this is hilarious:

I watch a lot of comedy, mainly black comedians such as Katt Williams, Dave Chappelle, Mike Epps etc… and most of their comedy is racial. They poke fun at all type of stereotypes, whether it be black, white, asian, hispanic, and frankly I think it’s hilarious.   And no one would think those comedians I mentioned were funny, if what they said couldn’t be related to by a large number of people in those races that they poke fun at.

The classic double standard rears its head once again when it comes to this Bill Maher Clip. Most of the blogs are OUTRAGED to say the least, that he would say such a thing.  :roll: get over it… He made a black joke, who cares.  It’s perfectly acceptable for black people to joke about white people, and I don’t buy that shit, that it can’t go the other way.

If you think anyone who laughs at this clip is racist, I say go get a sense of humor. And if you think it’s unfair to associate black people and guns, I say go read any Chicago based news website for starters.  Or are those stories fabricated as a part of some vast conspiracy?

According to the news so far, on April 20th the BP oil rig in the Gulf exploded.  Now since those rigs are inherently dangerous, I wasn’t really surprised by this and took it as an accident.

Then this from from Obama today:

  • Potentially getting the Department Of Defense to address the incident
  • Department of the interior is sending SWAT teams to the gulf to “inspect” all platforms and rigs

What the hell actually happened there, that the department of defense and SWAT teams would need to get involved? Smells fishy… I don’t like to don my tinfoil hat too often.. but I’m going to go out on a limb and question whether it was terrorism.  It definitely meets the criteria and M.O. of terrorists.

Wouldn’t be the first time we have been left in the dark when it comes to details.
