We Gettin’ A-rab Money! OHHHHH!!!

Me last night watching EweToube: Busta, NOOOOOOOOOO!”

Y’all see I tried to be nice by NOT roasting this nigga for coming out looking like a 6-month pregnant Bumpy Johnson at the Hip-Hop Honors. I even ignored “Arab Money” for as long as possible in hopes that he didn’t go with the Soulja Boy pronunciation of the ethnicity.

Much like #10 Superhead when she doesn’t get her way, I held my breath for no reason.

After finally indulging in the Ron Browz track and Tim Westwood presentation, I have decided I live too close to Brooklyn. I need to move before the next Bin Laden mixtape comes out with that Busta Rhymes response.

“It’s Arab, mother bitch!”

I was sure Atlanta would catch a bad one first since they escaped 9/11 un-planed. When Young Dro dropped “Taliban Banks,” I thought it was their time for sure, Shawty.

Don’t look at me like that. Please don’t tell me I’m the only one who remembers “Taliban Banks.”

“–Suicide doors like bombers. How it ‘pose ta be./

Jawin’ like Obama plus Osama buy dro from me./

Mosque smell like potpourri… Opium and groceries…/”

Jesus, people. That shit was hotter that applefruit. I feared the backlash would be more so.

From culturally insensitive lyrics to stereotypical corner store sound, Busta’s bringing us back to 2002. DJ Quik and Just Blaze had some ‘splainin to do behind “Addictive” and “React.” I wonder why no one’s up in arms about this track. I guess since thems was Injuns it’s different. In Amurrca we can get on the lufa falafel boys and won’t nobody say nothin.

I mean… Whatever he said, then I’m that.

As one of Mr. Smith’s supporters since LONS days, I didn’t want to condemn Busta without a fair trial. I took this shit to the corner store for myself and asked Habibi what the fuck they was sayin on the hook. He gave me that look like I just wiped my ass with his favorite page out the Koran. Then he asked me who the rapper was.

Of course, I told him it was Soulja Boy. When he finds out it’s Busta, some shit is finna jump off across that bridge, ya dig?

Worse than the song is that fuckin dance! What’s that supposed to be? Is he shakin a bomb up? Is that the Krylon can he used to draw the image of Mohammed on the side of his local public library?

Question of the Day: What kind of moron comes to the radio to debut a fucking dance anyway?

Negro, please. Busta, what the fuck are you letting dread sell you? I got a 2-year-old cousin who does that dance whenever the Backyardigans sing a song he likes. This whole midlife crisis thing fucked you up for real, though.

Alright, everyone. Whenever Arab Money comes on the radio I need you to bury your head in sand to show that you’re not part of the Busta Rhymes/B.O.M.B. listenership.

Questions? Comments? Requests? Seen 4 A-rabs in a Navigator with the AC blasting recently? ron@ronmexicocity.com

P.S.: If you can “shake your money” you most certainly do not have A-rab money. You might got “keeping my Citibank account active” cash, but yeen’t got that “keep a golf course green in the middle of Cursed Earth” bread.

    i haven’t really heard it yet, but aren’t the united arab emirrites swimming in oil money…and arent like…even janitors there loaded as shit? If he’s referring to that, it’s all true.

    or there’s the stereotype about perssians being loaded, which you gotta think is false when u look at ahmadinejad…i mean the dude dresses like a fisherman trynna spot a cheap hooker on a thursday night.

    but i can’t possibly think he means “i want that osama bin laden money”. We all know osama’s shit is all tied up in real assets…u know, like goats and shit.

    But who knows…i also thought “whatever you like” was some sorta love anthem. So i obviously dunno shit about shit.

  • these posts are racist

    The pronunciation of the word Arab as “A-Rap” is offensive. But more ignorant was his explanation of why he chose to do such a song. He has no clue. Arabs were under years of colonialism and not all Arabs in the Gulf states are wealthy – the govt. and elite are, but there are many more starving poor people that are not getting “A-rab Money.” Indeed, Dubai, the place I’m sure (and is also referenced in the song) is the inspiration behind this offensive track, is the perfect symbol of what’s wrong with the values humans place in money. Dubai is a place where the majority of people who live there are essentially slave laborors who spend days and nights working to make Dubai look glamorous. None of these people wille ever live good lives, and are also prohibited from ever getting a citizenship.

    So Busta’s reasoning behing making such as song is sad: something to the extent of, i want my people (black people) to emulate these Arabs…and get money.

    The Arabs you hope to emulate enslave their own people as well as many foriegn workers – and these small elite are getting big money. Good luck with that idea Busta.

    “Coming out looking like a 6-month pregnant Bumpy Johnson at the Hip-Hop Honors.”

    “This whole midlife crisis thing fucked you up for real, though.”

    I been wondering how this n*gga Busta supposed to be working out but always looking like a 40 year old in pajamas. 1990 was a long time ago. Let it go.

    Yo On the strength I have to mention that their isnt an image of Mohammed anywhere. An Image is man made and when man makes something their is always the possibility of error so thats why Mohammed and Allah dont have images or are hanging off my cuban link chain side by side my Jesus Piece. Just thought I’de Mention even though I am relatively Catholic

  • niggaplease

    “but yeen’t got that “keep a golf course green in the middle of Cursed Earth” bread.”

  • fredMS

  • geico lizard

    “he could be the next soulja boy.”lmao damn thats bad busta you want to be like someone who is young enough to be your grandson. i agree with jmill1224 you need an NIT for sdn because we have so many honorable mention cats popping up.

  • nellz

    how is that song offensive?
    i know plenty of arabs that say “arab” as “A-rab”. only thing i’d be tight about(if i was an arab) is that there is no arabic in the fuckin song…aside from that..its just a stupid song

  • TEZZY

    Forreal RonDawg, tell em son! Theyeent got that “build my own islands shaped like the world” dough!!!

    Plus, I hear Dubai is a shithole. Its all nice in the touristy areas, but if you travel even the slightest off track, you can end up in some shit. Its kinda like Orlando, just 1028274097% Worse. This comes from a very reliable government contractor I know, beliedat!
