Rap Musics Sweats Donald Trump Bruh.

Posted in smh. by Jason Mekkam on August 25, 2015

This explains so much. I’ve been scratching my head wondering why the #BlackLivesMatter Movement has yet to Kanye a Donald Trump event. Clearly hip-hop (thus black people by extension obvi) is in beds with the man no hot comb can handle.

I found the above clip while guiltily skimming the Ennis Del Mar of my very existence, WorldStarHipHop – oh how I wish I knew how to quit you. I knew about ‘Country Grammar’ and ‘Up Like Trump’, but I can’t believe that Trump-name-drops date back 25 years and are so mindbogglingly numerous. Watching the video is like taking cruise through the entire history of lake rap. It’s reassuring to know that while the characters, beats and flows have changed over time, the unwavering reverence of obnoxious old white men wealth remains a constant.

Donald Trump Is An Asshat.

Donald John Trump says enough terrible things in day to eviscerate the career of a lesser politician for two lifetimes. Unable to stay content in own crazy for too long, he’s outdone himself this week with a self-appointed crusade against birthright citizenship – a matter that by all accounts was settled by the ratification of the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution in 1868 and resettled by the Supreme Court’s United States v. Kim Wong Ark decision in 1898.

If you’re born in America you American.

Simple right?

‘Nah’ says Trump.

Illegal immigration is what is ruining America. Not failing schools. Not institutional racism. Not income inequality. Not gender discrimination. Not the criminalization of poverty. Not the personification of corporations. Not increasing obesity. But Pablo hoping a fence to kick it. Yeah he’s the problem.

This attack on birthright citizenship is the worst thing Trump has ever done because instead regurgitating the most crass of current conservative talking points at maximum volume in his signature, caricature style, he’s dusting off relic racist rhetoric and attempting to pass it off as political innovation.  Like the Slave Codes, Chinese Exclusion Acts, and Immigration Acts of the first quarter of the 20th century, challenging birthright citizenship serves no greater purpose than for those in power to define what a “real American” at the detriment of everybody else. Such desries fall perfectly in line with old white men longing for the days humans of darker hues weren’t so bold in their assertions of self dignity and demands for equal respect.

Worse yet is that the the birthright non-debate at it’s core wishes to criminalize birth, being that children have no control over where they are born, talk less of if their births are coincide with made up rules and regulations established before their existence. Too we are a nation of immigrations and descendants of immigrants or decedents people who were kindnapped and violently forced to work for nothing by those immigrants. If one were to follow this ideology to its extreme wouldn’t that mean that none of us actually have a right to be here?

All this is kind of hard to wrap one’s head around, so allow me to make it easier. The 14th Amendment was a Reconstruction Amendment added in response to the Civil War the fuckedupness of slavery. Donald Trump wants to undo what was done in response to hate. He’s crossed the line this time from public headache to actual menace to society and he’s starting to have a real influence on how we talk about immigration.

This madness must be stopped.

This Week In Famous White Female Singers Dancing To Rapping Musics.

A$AP Ferg dropped a visual for his “Dope Walk” this week.

It’s dope.

The FaceTiming New York’s Fashion Week/how-many-famous-people-can-you-spot-who’s-first-name-isn’t-A$AP concept is plenty entertaining enough, but the real fun starts damn near the end at the 4:07 mark when a couple of the girls from Haim decide letting Ferg & Co. hog all the dope for themselves ain’t dope.

What ensues is the most mesmerizing seven seconds of footage. Admittedly, I gotta tell you that watching white girls dance to hip-hop has always been an exhilarating experience for me because like them fucking Harry Potter Jelly Beans you never know what you’re gonna get. The spectrum of talent is so vast. In this instance tho let it be known that these girls can get it. I vouch vehemently.

Hell I’ll vouch for anyone who’s willing to have a good time. Hip-hop is an inclusive sport – don’t need no hateration, holleration in this dancery. Get down Haim with your funky jungle-loving selves I say. Shucks you too Taylor Swift. Like can a girl live universe? She can gig out to Kanye all day if she want’s too.

Hooray equality.

Lil B Isn’t Gay. He’s Just An Ass.

Posted in smh. by Jason Mekkam on April 20, 2011

Lil B announced last weekend during his Coachella set that he plans on making a new album called I’m Gay. For this I think he’s an ass.

As the creator of songs such as “I’m Miley Cyrus”, “I’m God”, “Ellen Degeneres” and “Pretty Bitch” the Bay Area rapper’s music has always ascended to a level of absurdity fueled heavily by his self-created “based” ideology – which Lil B explains as “[being] positive, doing what you want to do, not caring and just being yourself.”

Catalyzed by his own Kool-Aid, Lil B has said and done a lot of crazy, but this time Lil B has gone too far. This stunt is stupid. With his new album title plans, he’s conducted his train o’ ignance right past outrageous and unnecessarily towards intellectual/cultural assault.
