    Ya, this isn't about IM. But I have had a few tonight and listening to youtube videos. I wish popular music had something to say like this, even if you disagree it's not the mindless crap on the radio or tv..

    damn...

    i dont give a crap about politics

    but that tune and rap and drumline was great

    Could definitely see that song getting picked up in a movie - would go great for a scene where someone is driving a convertible in the desert.

    too bad the song doesnt have a chorus. i think it could have been a hit.

    Yeah it does. "its like mk ultra controllin ya brain, suggestive thinkin causin your perspective to change, they wanna rearrange the whole point of view of the ghetto, the fourth branch of the government want us to settle"

    The line "they wanna rearrange the whole point of view of the ghetto" is especially interesting to me.

    What I get from it is that, he's insinuating that modern rap/hiphop which is largely controlled by all the same multi billion dollar media corporations, is killing minority culture because it's all focused on "bling bling" and riches that 99% of these people will NEVER attain, but the people still sing the songs and live vicariously through it, which undoubtedly is a form of control. People don't get mad at corporations because they care too much about material objects, or the vain hope of attaining them one day.
    Whereas, hiphop was originally about "the struggle" in general, that is now outdated in modern society.
