    Damn JON,
    Lemme guess, JON is white……I’m white also, but I’ve been loving Dead Prez since they dropped their first 12 inch. Sorry you got a problem with Black power. I wonder if you know anything about it? Did you know the Black Panthers used to have shelters where they would feed hungry kids? Did you know Tupacs mom was a panther? Someone had a little too much Haterade.

    DeadPrez is one of the realest groups in hip hop…And its bigger than hip hop. I’ve travelled the world just to find that the former rulers of the world, the original man, is now at the bottom of the totem pole all across the globe. We must continue to support artists who stand for the betterment of not just black people, but the underdogs. Keep an eye out for the new collaboration album between DeadPrez and the OUTLAWZ entitled Can’t $ell Dope 4ever.

    We as a people must stand up and demand more from ourselves and our children. There is no reason your son or daughter cannot a lawyer or doctor or astronut or whatever they desire. We need to reclaim our communities, put an end to this fucking nonsense of drug exploitation and glorification of national ignorance…FUCK VIACOM, FUCK BET, and if you down with enslaving my people into believing we are less than the orginal creations of God…FUCK YOU TOO.

    I REFUSE TO INDULDGE IN CONSPIRITAL, HATE FILLED PROPAGANDA THESE GUYS SEEM TO PUT OUT. I BELIEVE THEY ARE HYPOCRITICAL AND IGNORANT IDIOTS THAT TRIGGER THEIR LACK OF TALENT TOWARDS OTHER INDIVIDUALS WHO ALSO LIKE TO PLAY THE ROLE OF THE VICTEM. THESE GUYS SHOUT WEAK MORE THAN ANYTHING. I LOVE HIP HOP AND GREW UP LISTENING TO IT, AS ANYBODY OF ANY SKIN TONE IN AMERICA HAS, IT’S PART OF OUR (YES, AMERICAN) CULTURE. I DON’T THINK THEY OFFER ANYTHING CONSTRUCTIVE, PROGRESSIVE, OR HELPFUL IN TERMS OF THE GOAL THEY SUPPOSEDLY ARE TRYING TO CONVEY. BY INSULTING INNOCENT WHITE PEOPLE & RACIAL NAME CALLING, ETC IS NOT GOING TO GET THEM ANYWHERE, AND IN REALITY, THEY’RE ONLY SETTING THEMSELFS AND THEIR MESSAGE FURTHER BACK. THIS IS ALL HATE FILLED GARBAGE FROM TWO SAD INDIVIDUALS. I NEVER HEARD SO MUCH WHINING ON WAX…..

    MONEY COMES HARD.

    FOR BLACK PEOPLE TRYING TO DEFEND THIS SHIT, PLEASE. YOU’RE THE REAL RACISTS IF YOU SUPPORT THIS.

    FOR THE WHITEBOYS… QUIT TRYING SO HARD.

    A response to “P”…

    You claim to love Hip Hop, but it is clear that you do not have a clue about the genesis of the art form and culture.
    Yes, Hip Hop is as American as apple pie. However, Hip Hop music was born amidst oppressive conditions in the South Bronx. (Poverty, hunger, poor housing conditions, burned-down buildings, police brutality, etc…) Who were the creators? Working-class African Americans (and Puerto Ricans to a lesser degree.) Like blues, jazz, and rock before it, Hip Hop was co-opted by white people out to make a buck off of the creativity and labor of people of color. Since before Grandmaster Flash (The Message), there has always been a political element to Hip Hop. That cannot be divorced from the music, no matter how much finger snapping is going on these days. So if two black men, who are rightfully angry, want to talk shit about the government and even white people, let them speak their minds. Those offended by their message need to get a good history book.

    Shit!! It was good to make a statement, but don’t you get tired of this bitching and bullshit about a revolution. Send them of to mother fuckin’ Cuba.
    Dead Prez have good tunes, but I still think they sometimes act like a black version of Billy O’Riely.
    I am sure Black power is an important state of mind for an african american but when you start making it into an idiology you just become a bigot.
    Historic truth should be taught and prolifirated. Yet, we live in the 21st Century and its about time we start whining, crying and just progress. I know where hip hop came from and that is not the case, it is now a global art form just like classical music. No one is getting offended by this shit Chrismaestro,it just proves these guys have an infiriority complex otherwise they wouldn’t be talking about cracka this cracka that. That’s how the ignorant white trash talks about black people.
