Louisiana Stays Losing…

I am on my way to stay with my mom for a week in Atlanta. She is one of the jigs that relocated to the new South because the lifestyle was slower and reportedly cheaper. Shit always looks greener on the outside. Yeah the purchase price was cheaper, but there are all these hidden fees in the game of life now that niggers didn’t have in place before. Just like the surcharge American Airlines charges you for your luggage is $15 when you fly domestically, but FREE when you fly internationally. I try to stay getting stamps in my passport just like your favorite rapper does.

I like visiting the ‘A’ since I have more folks down there than just my moms. I have a gang of cousins and even some real good friends that I met on the ‘nets. Even though Atlanta is smack dab in the center of Georgia it doesn’t feel like the south to me. Maybe that’s because hardly no one that lives in Atlanta is from Atlanta. Sheeeeit, Atlanta’s second best rapper is from Chicago, or Champaigne or some shit. Atlanta’s best rapper don’t even reside there anymore. Sonn is all about Hollywood now.

I hate leaving my hometown though, even if only for a minute. That is when all kinds of sick shit pops off that I wish I was at. Free liquor and merchandise giveaways, other shit for free like movies and concerts. All because I decided to leave for a week. I’m gonna have to get over my New York City-centricity for a minute. I am going to get into some slick shit in the ‘A’. There is a Jill Scott concert that mom dukes copped us some tickets for.

My mom keeps it funky with me. Last year she came with me to the Sneaker Pimps event in the ‘A’. Dudes weren’t even trippin’ on who brought the senior citizen. If I had to move to the south I could definitely fucks with Atlanta. Anywhere else would be out of the question. Especially motherfucking Louisiana. They stay on some supremacist shit in regards to taking the lives of Black people.

There were the BlackWater USA mercenaries that patroled New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and were allowed to shhot to kill anyone outdoors after the state of emergency posted curfew hours.

There was that incident with the New Orleans police beating an elderly Black man to a pulp on a Bourbon Street sidewalk one evening because he wasn’t walking fast enough.


Damn. The old man caught a bad one.

Who can forget the Jena 6?

And now this story comes out on some Sean Bell shit, except this dude was killed by a police way back in January. How fucked the fuck up is the supremacist suppression in Louisiana that we can’t learn about these stories for six months? At least you knew about Sean Bell’s murder the following day. Louisiana is letting the police and paid mercenaries merc’k Black folks on the regulack with no repercussions.

**Smart Dumb Moment: F.Y.I. – The slang term merc’k gets its meaning from the shit that mercenaries (guns for hire) do to other people.**

So peep the newsreel about this 21yr old homey named Baron “Scooter” Pikes who was tasered to death by one of the klansmen’s grandsons. The reason that I think this story wasn’t circulated earlier is because Black folks in Louisiana have grown to accept their position in the supremacist machinery. They would rather sip that Lean and snap their fingers then challenge the system.

The white that I know from the south are also the same way. If they aren’t virulent racists themselves they are not the kind of people that would openly challenge the terrorism of the Ku Klux Klan and other affiliated groups. I try not to blame white too much for the tacit and complicit endorsement of supremacy. Most white are shook ones when it comes to social justice. They think that their level in the social stratification will be undermined if they allow Blacks to be treated fairly. White is also more scared than a motherfucker after seeing their homey JFK and his ba’ybro get they wigs clapped on.

Still and all, I am concerned that even the righteous, faithful people from this town were afraid to broadcast this story. When you examine the details it is evident that this was a murder. The police officer has a record of abuse and this is the incident where he finally took a life. The example of justice has forever been denied to African American males when their oppressor has been the police. As long as good people are afraid of the terrorists no one will be allowed to have justice.

Do any rappers from Louisiana ever rap about this shit?

    Billy X Sunday,
    Try to listen to Fela Kuti’s song,and get some one from the west coast of Africa or the caribbean to interprete his english for you.He is the greatest African musician to walk this earth.Nas,Jay-z,Marcy Gray,grand theft auto[the video game], have all use samples from him.He said much about the black man struggle and social ills,and for that reason he was even persecuted by the government of his own country.I would like you to comment about him some time in the future.I know many out there are still unaware of him.Here is an excerpt from one of his songs,’Beast of no nation’,that is some how related to your topic:

    “Dem go hold meeting[i.e white leaders such as Thatcher,Reagan,and Botha ], oh, Dem go start yab human beings
    Animal talk don start again
    Dash dem human rights

    How animal go know-say dem no born me as slave?
    How animal go know say slave trade don pass?
    And, dey wan dash us human rights
    Animal must talk to human beings
    Give dem human rights

    I beg-I, oh , make you hear me well-u well
    I beg-I, oh, make you hear me very well

    Human rights na my property
    So therefore, you can’t dash me my property
    Human rights na my property
    Dey wan dash us human rights”
    “When they[i.e white leaders such as Thatcher,Reagan,and Botha ] assemble for meetings they bring up topics in which they insult human beings/
    Animal talk has started again/give them[i.e blacks] human rights/How will an animal know that i was not born a slave?/How will an animal know that slave trade is over?/They want to give us human right/
    Animal must talk to human beings/
    Give dem human rights/please you should listen to me very well/Human rights is my property/So therefore, you can’t give me my property/Human rights is my property/they want to give us human rights”

    as busta rhymes said in nas’s untitled album:
    “why? cause that is what niggers do”

    “Do any rappers from Louisiana ever rap about this shit?” nah, they too busy talking about how they murder niggas themselves

    Where are Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson at? Are they putting on their makeup to go and be all over the tv with this issue?

  • giantstepp

    Somebody call Rev Al and Jesse! Seriously tho, the south has changed alot but some parts of it still scare the sh*t outta me. Im from DC, lived in NC for a while and saw it 1st hand. I traveled to Alabama a few years back with an ex of mines and some of those small towns we passed thru reminded me of something right outta the civil rights era we see on tv. It was like going back in time. Other than that i can appreciate the slower pace, and southern hospitality is a beautiful thing.

    Good drop BXS!

    We raise hell about it here in New Orleans when the shit pops off, so you’re mistaken when U say all we do is sip lean(Texas) and snap(ATL), U wont hear about it b/c the powers that be get paid off tourism and visits 2 the city, so they wont put out info that might hurt that(400K people were here 4 EssenceFest).U might get a tiny bit of info, but not much(i.e. around the time Sean Bell was killed by NOPD, a brother here was lit up 125(!) times by Jefferson Parish Deputies in a traffic stop, and the then-sherrif only said, “if it would’ve been 300, I still wouldnt’ve gave a damn”. Shit stinks from the top down, so U really should use your blog 2 address those in charge about their part in the extinction of black people…

  • http://efcuttin.blogspot.com EF Cuttin

    after reading the newsreel, I have 2 tell u Winfield is NOT New Orleans, nowhere NEAR N.O. so lets stop bringing New Orleans up when talking about shit that happens in Louisiana. U go outside ATL you will find the same shit, same with the 5 Boroughs. There are rural areas all over this country where racism thrives, Jena should’ve showed U that, or when the girl in WVA got tortured/raped/degraded 4 a week. Nasty ass crackers are all over this muhfucka…

  • Oneofthemyo’s

    Man THANKS for puttin people/me up on this shit cause I watch the news and still never heard of any of this(not that really expect to get news from the news n e more).

  • http://www.theunderwriters.blogspot.com THE UNDERWRITER

    Drank something with your boy. Early.

    Hit me on the email. I’m in town until Sunday night.

    On another note, what the fuck is up with this fradulent math that the “Spam Protection” is trying to tell me? Is this some type of trick question? I’m getting pissed. I’m too drunk for this bullshit, and I’m firing one up as I… type… this post. Hopefully I get it right. And hopefully somebody’s math isn’t fucked the fuck up. Because if my shit posts, it’s because I just said “eff it” and put the wrong answer in. Jesus.

    Yo, this shit is wack.

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday


    You niggers from Louisiana is stupid AND cowards.

    Why does this case just now come to the public? What the fuck have y’all been doing for the last six months?

    • http://efcuttin.blogspot.com EF Cuttin

      Dude how can U say we’re stupid just because YOU just hearin about this??? The fuck U think we been doin here??? U sound kinda dumb thinkin the entire STATE is aware of an incident that happened in rural ass Winfield (U should be more specific as 2 where you place blame as Shreveport is the nearest city 2 Winfield. Sean Bell got attention b/c it happend in the NUMBER ONE MEDIA MARKET genius, do U really think these are isolated incidents??? U really oughta try traveling outside of city limits sometime before U condemn an entire STATE based on U not getting news…

    Maybe if Scooter wasn’t selling coke he wouldn’t have been shocked. People bitch about prison being unfair and all for us but I’m sure that less dudes would be selling coke if they knew the cops would respond with “excessive force” everytime.

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    I agree that Scooter shouldn’t have been a coke dealer.

    I wish more Black people would stop selling drugs but then it would mean that white people would make ALL of the money from the drug trade.

    Who do you think owns the farms that grow the shit?

    Who do you think owns the factories that convert the shit from a raw material into a usable narcotic?

    Who do you think owns the airplanes and the boats that ship the shit to the U.S.?

    Who do you think owns the factories that manufacture the tiny little vials and plastic baggies that the shit is sold in?

    Who do you think owns the corporations that manage the prison industrial complex?

    You are right jollyrench, Scooter and all the other Black kids that are selling dope need to recognize who they are ultimately working for and get a job at McDonald’s.

    Yeah, white owns that too.

    Fuck whoever wrote this blog. I dare that muthafucka to step foot in my city (N.O.). You think everybody know what goes on in the whole state. I just heard about the kid getting tasered to death yesterday. And I never heard of Windfield, LA. Does a Brooklyn nigga know everything that goes on in Upstate NY? No, so how the fuck you gonna try to put don’t the black people of Louisiana. Whoever writes this blog better not ever step his black ass down here in the boot or I will personally make sure you get stumped the fuck out and put on a bus back to NY. I will most def be canceling my subscription to XXL and will be telling all my homies to do the same.

    How dare you talk down to black folks like niggaz in NY are the picture of health. Yall let a mutha fucking good nigga get shot up 50+ times for nothing and let the cops walk the streets and keep their jobs. NY niggaz walk around shook of the NYPD.

    Fuck XXL.
