The Tens: 10 Rappers The Obamas Should Invite To The White House Next
It’s truly unfortunate that the right wing media and a vast majority of conservatives are still carrying on about this whole issue with Common being invited to the White House by the Obamas. They tried to label Lonnie Lynn as a “Thug” when he makes songs like “The Light.” When that didn’t work out too well, they just lambasted Barack & Michelle for inviting a “Cop Killing Supporter” over to kick some poetry at the White House. In the wake of Common’s appearance at the house of Obama, Bill O’Reilly and company are still upset about the whole situation. Do they have any idea who the Obamas could have invited over? We do. That’s why we put together this list of rappers the Obama Clan should have over for their next poetry session with the poem they should kick. Let’s see how the right wingers deal with these invited guests.
1. Immortal Technique
Poem To Recite: “Bin Laden”
Select Entry: “So I’m strapped like Lee Malvo holdin’ a sniper rifle/These bullets’ll touch your kids, and I don’t mean like Michael/Your body be sent to the morgue, stripped down and recycled/ I fire on house niggaz that support you and like you”
Response: If you’re going to piss the right wingers off, might as well do it with the super aggressive social commentary over beats by Immortal Technique. Bill O’Reilly would probably have a heart attack. Somehow, someway, Immortal Technique would never make it to the White House that night.
2. dead prez
Poem To Recite: “We Want Freedom”
Select Entry: “Yeah, I’m for peace/But I’ll kill ya if ya fuck with my moms or my niece/See we all want peace, but the problem is/Crackers want a bigger piece/Got it where the niggas can’t get a piece/That’s why police get stabbed and shot/Cuz a nigga can’t eat if the ave is hot”
Response: This isn’t even the half of what dead prez bring to the table. Dead prez would later be arrested for scheming on killing whitey. There goes freedom.
3. Public Enemy
Poem To Recite: “Fight The Power
Select Entry: “Elvis was a hero to most/But he never meant shit to me you see/Straight up racist that sucker was/Simple and plain…” (Flavor Flav) “Motherfuck him and John Wayne!”
Response: Glenn Beck would ask why Chuck D hadn’t been locked up sooner for disrespecting a musical genius like Elvis. The entire right wing would gasp at Flavor Flav’s line because they only assumed he only had an opinion on reality TV shows.
4. The Coup
Poem To Recite: “Head (Of State)”
Select Entry: “Bush and Hussein together in bed/Giving H-E-A-D head/Y’all motherfuckers heard what we said/Billions made and millions dead”
Response: Honestly? The Coup’s invite to the White House would be laced by anthrax. The end.
5. KRS One
Poem To Recite: “Free Mumia”
Select Entry: “Warner, Elektra, Atlantic equals WEA/Instead of fighting them why don’t you go free Mumia”
Response: And they thought Common was bad for supporting Assata Shakur…
6. Mos Def
Poem To Recite: “What’s Beef?”
Select Entry: “Beef is not what these famous niggas do on the mic/Beef is what George Bush would do in a fight/Yeah, beef is not what Ja said to 50/Beef is more than Irv not bein here with me/When a soldier ends his life with his own gun/Beef is tryin’ to figure out what to tell his son/Beef is oil prices and geopolitics/Beef is Iraq, the West Bank, and Gaza Strip”
Response: Fox News wouldn’t stress this too much. But then they’d hear Mos Def’s voice bellow “Bin Laden didn’t blow up the projects, it was you nigga!” on Immortal Technique’s “Bin Laden” and there would be a bear trap, a stick of dynamite and a firing squad waiting for Mos Def at the White House front door.
7. Kanye West
Poem To Recite: “Crack Music”
Select Entry: “How we stop the Black Panthers?/Ronald Reagan cooked up an answer/You hear that? What Gil Scott is “Heron”/When our heroes or heroines got hooked on heroin/Crack, raised the murder rate in D.C. and Maryland/We, invested in that, it’s like we got Merrill Lynched”
Response: Like they need another reason to hate Kanye West.
8. Lupe Fiasco
Poem To Recite: “Words I Never Said”
Select Entry: “I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit/Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets/How much money does it take to really make a full clip?/9/11, Building 7, did they really pull it?” & “Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist/Gaza Strip was gettin bombed, Obama didn’t say shit/That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either”
Response: At first the entire right wing would label Lupe Fiasco a terrorist. He does have a song titled “American Terrorist” after all. But then they’d hear that Lupe didn’t vote for Obama and would try to recruit him.
9. Brother Ali
Poem To Recite: “Uncle Sam Goddamn”
Select Entry: “Talking about you don’t support a crackhead/What you think happens to the money from your taxes/Shit the governments an addict/With a billion dollar a week kill brown people habit”
Response: They thought he looked like one of them (except for Michael Steele and Herman Cain) and then they listened to this guy who rhymes like he’s from the pulpit and liken him to a lighter version of Jeremiah Wright.
10. Ras Kass
Poem To Recite: “Nature Of The Threat”
Select Entry: Probably the most prolific history song ever written. Too much to put so just go here…
Response: And you wonder why Ras Kass never made it big. They had it out for that guy in the 90′s
