You Won’t Be Smiling On Riker’s Island…
A few months ago UnKut Dot Com held down a guest blogger spot at this site with a mean drop on the most gully prison songs in rap music.
Please go back and listen to that shit. He ended his drop featuring one of the GOATs inside of the Hip-Hop arena. Kool G Rap’s song dedicated to New York’s most infamous criminal detention center was the realest real talk ever put on wax. Peep the hook of the song…
“ You might have been coolin’,
You might have been stylin’,
But you won’t smilin’ on Rikers Island“
That nigga G Rap ain’t never lie in his rhymes. Although some of today’s young Black children take their fashion cues from prison inmates I don’t think many of them could handle the daily brutality that is meted out behind bars. No one bangs out like predicate felons do. They’ve become programmed to be like the beast that has them encaged. Desensitized and unremorseful, some of these people would kill their own flesh and blood. Some of them are even so far gone that they can no longer adapt to society outside of their cells. These people feel more stable in prison than they do outside of it. Tell me how fucked the fuck up is that?!?
That shit sounds crazy but if you have ever done the knowledge of the prison INDUSTRIAL complex then you understand the large amounts of money that are being made on the essentially free labor of state’s property. That’s one of the reasons I would never wear anything that said State Property (even though Uncle Sam pwns my azz – April 15th anyone?) and I’m sure it’s why I’ll never see a white wearing a t-shirt that says nigger, even though white was the very first nigger (Schwarze-negger).
All of you e-thugs and wannabe hard rocks should do yourself a favor and watch this video I have linked here. It’s about the culture on Riker’s Island, the remnants of slavery which are still in effect and what kind of person the prison system develops. You can learn that a ‘Buck Fifty’ scar gets its name because that’s usually how many stitches are required to close the gash. On second thoughts, if some of you kids have a soft stomach then maybe you shouldn’t watch this video…
If for nothing else just peep the dude from Louisiana who eats 38 shells point blank from the Shreveport police and they have the shit on tape. Son is shot in the face and he doesn’t go down to the ground. This dude was the epitome of hardbody.
