Events leading up to the creation of this song
Katrina hits the gulf. African Americans bitch that the government is hesitant to send relief. I bite my tongue because their situation IS unfortunate and I slightly feel bad for them.
Kanye West announces on live television that Bush doesnt care about black people. Again, I bite my tongue. He is simply practicing his right to Freedom of Speech.
Then something happened that pushed me over the edge. The NBA states that they are going to start enforcing a dress-code. I personally think this is a great idea. The players on the other hand...
Long story short, I read an interview on AOLnews (for the life of me, I cant remember who it was). This individual stated that "THEY dont want US to dress Like Black People." By US Im pretty sure hes not talking about the white players, such as..um, well, I cant think of any at this moment, but Im sure there are still a couple out there
I had to do something creative with my frustration. I wrote the lyrics, and seeing as how I am as musically crap-tacular as (Insert TRL Superstar here), I got my friend Josh to perform it. 2 hours and a 12-pack later, we had this little diddy.
Let me clear a few things up before you listen to it. The song is missing a certain word. Dont worry; youll know what it is when you hear it. And as for the Gravedigger line, well the fact is this. If the offices of Military Equal Opportunity got wind of this, they would have a field day with my ass. Its an attempt, although a futile one, to cover my ass if indeed this got into the wrong hands.
Just a heads up, it would probably be a good idea to wait until the room is cleared of black people before you listen to this. Unless of course youve got a bottle of Old E and some of the sticky icky to share with them afterwards.
"This is not the greatest song in the world. No, this is just a tribute."
