I know that some of you come to this site for new topics daily and I don’t want to stay on the thread with the pro-Black on Black crime is Black culture counterrevolutionaries that write in all capital letters. It becomes an exercise in futility, like pissing in the wind. You just end up with pee on your good shoes. Mine are Nike Vick Blacksburgs. I caught them on eBay for 20 cent. That’s NYC lingo for twenty dollars. If this Michael Vick scandal carries on for too long I will be able to buy all of his Nike shoes for dirt cheap. Whether or not dude is guilty no longer even matters since he has been convicted in the court of public opinion. His marketability has been rendered null and void. That is why Nike cancelled releasing his shoe. It’s all about money and ain’t a damn thing funny.
Who the fuck at Nike cares if he kills dogs? Roc-A-Wear and Sean John clothing lines killed dogs in order to make the fur trim for their crappy clothing. Did PETA go to Jay-Z concerts and protest? No, of course not. Why?!? Because Jay-Z doesn’t own Roc-A-Wear. White people do, and white people will be damned to a fiery hell if they try to stop the money machine of a jewish Russian family. You ever heard of Joseph Stalin? He had no problem killing Russian PETA protesters back in his day. That’s why PETA is allowed to get all batshit on Michael Vick. His name and his branding machine is populated by Blacks. Even his defense lawyer is a Black. This is ultimately why PETA is allowed to get all up in his ass (no Esera Tuaolo).
At the end of the day however it all boils down to dollars and not sense. That is why McDonald’s dropped fast rap legend Twista from their national concert series. Twista isn’t making them any money. He isn’t making the brand name McDonald’s look young and hip. Even though Twista is from Chicago and McDonald’s Corp. is head-quartered in Oak Brook, right outside of Chicago this relationship wasn’t going to last. McDonald’s has been desperate to come into some Hip-Hop influenced money, but their methods are totally ass backwards. Hip-Hop fans don’t respond to overt corporate marketing any longer. We’re too savvy for that now. Your shit has to be subtle, yet slightly subversive in order to strike a chord with us, the Hip-Hop generation. I don’t think the suits at McDonald’s would recognize that shit if it hit them in the face. Truthfully, I know that for a fact. Here is the video for the greatest commercial for McDonald’s evar, and they didn’t know what to do with it so they just hated on it.
Getting back to your boy Twista…
Homey did a free show in New York City last week in front of crickets. The sponsor was Olde English malt liquor brand and it also featured Black Moon, Heltah Skeltah and Smif, or maybe it was Wessun. Nonetheless, after the Boot Camp Clik exited the stage so did the audience. It was reported that even some of Twista’s entourage had left the venue as well. Now a week later McDonald’s claims that Twista’s content is what forced them to remove him from their concert lineup. That party people, is straight up shenanigans. Twista couldn’t bring the asses to the table and that is the only thing that matters in capitalism. That is the game we are all playing. Well, most of us are playing. Some of y’all are still on the bench and some of y’all are too scared to play at all so you just spectate and speculate. Ha, I said spectate. Looks like these da dunn da dunt commenters are affecting my vocab skills. Anyhoo…
So who will McDonald’s replace Twista with? Hannah Montana?!? Don’t sleep party people, we are entering a new age of conservatism here in America. Hip-Hop music had been bringing people too close together under the same tribe of disaffected, disenfranchised people. Public Enemy was touring with Sonic Youth and Anthrax. By the way, did I mention that Scott Ian was on stage with P.E. at the RTB concert? Rage against the Machine and the Wu Tang were also touring partners. Shit like this can make money in the immediate moment but it isn’t good for capitalism or supremacy to have all different types of people breaking bread and bonding with one another. Eventually people might start to realize that we are ultimately all slaves to supremacy.
At the end of the day Twista needs to get his weight back up because if Mickey Dees is saying that your material is too controversial then that is like getting your street cred from Sesame Street.
