We interrupt your regularly scheduled coke rap for this special bulletin.
“I got a new mentor. Barack Obama’s my mentor. Y’all believe that, man. For the first time we ready for change, homie. We gon’ back it. Any you people out there listening, it’s a hands-off policy on Barack Obama, man. Y’all touch him, we touchin’ everything. That’s my word to God. That’s on the hood. Every hood. I’m telling you right now. Y’all touch him, you know what it is… And for the first time in life period–I don’t know if you know about black men, but black men are sincere. They mean what they say. Especially when they have power. And he has power, man. He means what he—I think this the change. This the change we need. Everybody. The whole world. We need somebody that’s just for us. And that’s our country, man. Barack Obama, hats off to you, homie. I’m not on no nothing else. Congratulations. Win, lose or draw, we with you, boy.” –Young Jeezy, Trill TV interview
Completely sandwiched by the usual cocaine propaganda, Young Jeezy gives us a Black History/Vote or Drought moment. Let’s see what Merriam-Webster has to say about such foolhardy Negrospeak.
According to the big book we finally read in prison, a mentor is “a trusted counselor or guide.” There’s no way Faux News and the federales aren’t already just waiting to catch these two partnering up in a game of spades so the onslaught can begin. Barack Obama is not allowed to utter the name “Young Jeezy” in public. I don’t think Barack the Vote is even allowed to use the word “snow” untl after he’s
lit the fuck up at his podium sworn in.
Unless Obama’s white half is teaching The Snowman how to read in the barn at night by candlelight, there’s no way this arrangement can be.
It’d have to be Obama’s white half doing the mentoring too. We all know Jeezy’s prejudice. He’ll never touch the black one.
With that said, I do wonder if John McCain will face the same scrutiny Obama has for bringing Daddy Yankee and his “vile,” misogynistic, highly-inappropriate-for-a-presidential-candidate baggage to the big show. Rappers mention Barack and we have a horror show on our hands. Jawn McCain does “Gasolina” adlibs for The Big Boss of the Booty Cartel and I still hear crickets.
Put a pin in that one. We’ll come back to it.
