    Sarah Palin's looking for attention by bashing Obama? What'll happen next? My guess is that the sun will rise in the east.

    As far as rap music itself, I wouldn't necessarily call any music "progress". Music is always one of the ways generations express themselves - it just changes with every generation. Some rap music (and country music, pop music, etc.) is purely for entertainment, some has deeper meaning.
    If the meaning of rap music is progress, then we're all ****ed.

    I know this is hard to believe, but I was pointing out that he was not calling for people to burn, or otherwise kill Bush.
    So, when he said, "burn Bush", that's supposed to be some sorta harmless metaphor?

    Now, you're just being obtuse.

    I don't know if she pulled the trigger which killed that trooper but, the case isn't Black and White... (or is it....kkk and rappers mentioned in the thread)

    The N.J State Police call her a cop killer, but why did that shoot-out even occur? And why did they have to use such enhanced interrogation techniques to evoke that confession>?

    And in "A Letter to the Law" Common is clearly using the gun as a metaphor for his passion, his anger. Actually, in the song he says the power of mind and community is bigger than boys popping guns. His uzi weighs a ton, he's got the black strap ---- the conscious, unified citizenry is more powerful than guns, AND HE IS ANGRY. This is the point of the song as I interpret it?

    Now, how about the real issues, like why he was so angry to make such strong metaphors?

    I that woman? Is a criminal.
    In May 1973 Shakur was involved in a shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike, during which New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster and BLA member Zayd Malik Shakur were killed and Shakur and Trooper James Harper were wounded.[5] Between 1973 and 1977, Shakur was indicted in relation to six other alleged criminal incidents—charged with murder, attempted murder, armed robbery, bank robbery, and kidnapping—resulting in three acquittals and three dismissals. In 1977, she was convicted of the first-degree murder of Foerster and of seven other felonies related to the shootout.[6]
    Shakur was then incarcerated in several prisons, where her treatment drew criticism from some human rights groups. She escaped from prison in 1979 and has been living in Cuba in political asylum since 1984. Since May 2, 2005, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has classified her as a "domestic terrorist" and offered a $1 million reward for assistance in her capture. Attempts to extradite her have resulted in letters to the Pope and a Congressional resolution. Shakur is the step-aunt of the deceased hip hop icon Tupac Shakur (the sister of his stepfather, Mutulu Shakur). Her life has been portrayed in literature, film and song.[7]
    Assata Shakur - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    She's a criminal, a domestic terrorist. She's scum of the earth.

    you would do well to speak respectfully of more succesful and intelligent peoples, palin specifically. the point she was making is that if you are the head of the civilized world, you should sorround yourself with truly intelligent, talented and inspiring individual. all common does is bash bush, praise obama, andact like he is a victim of some pervasive racism in the white mans world. though not a cop killer himself (i would never assume such an edge on that passive wannabe) his virtues are limited and there are a thousand more people who would have better fit a white house guest role. obama desperately wants to look cool these days.

    And that's something I will never understand. I wasn't allowed to listen to it when I was younger in my house because of swear words and "mature themes", but my parents didn't detest it. As far as I'm concerned rappers are telling stories like other musicians - they're just telling stories that some people don't want to hear.
