    You must, VOTE OR DIE MOTHAF***A!"

    From my Gmail account to your computer screen!

    T.I. AND REV. YEARWOOD KICKED OFF THE CAMPAIGN TODAY IN WASHINGTON, DC. WITH PRESS CONFERENCE

    CAMPAIGN SLOGAN AND T-SHIRT, PRODUCED BY FORTHCOMING AKOO CLOTHING LINE, "RESPECT MY VOTE!" INTRODUCED

    (New York, NY - July 28, 2008) - The Hip Hop Caucus, www.hiphopcaucus.org, and Multi-Platinum, Grammy Award Winning Superstar T.I. have joined forces to launch a powerful new voter registration and Get Out the Vote campaign that combines the power of celebrity and media with 21st century grassroots organizing tactics to mobilize and educate young people between the ages of 18 and 29, who are not in college. The campaign slogan, "Respect My Vote!" and t-shirts were unveiled today at a press event in Washington, DC, with Hip Hop Icons Rakim and Bun B, DJ Green Lantern, Dawn from Danity Kane, Young Berg, Maino, Young Steff, Young Dro, Washington Wizard Etan Thomas, Olympic Gold Medalist Anthony Killieberew, Immortal Technique, Kidz in the Hall, Big Kuntry King, Pleasure P, World Class Sprinter and Champion Michael Walton and many others turning out to support.

    Rev and TI The campaign, led by T.I. will employ other celebrities, athletes and high profile influential figures to get out the vote in a variety of ways including PSAs for radio, television and online use; in person appearances; press events; mobile and email alerts from celebrities themselves; and an aggressive online campaign. Famed photographer Jonathan Mannion has been exclusively tapped to shoot portraits of the famous faces adoring the "Respect My Vote!" slogan and t-shirt produced by forthcoming AKOO clothing line as well as direct and produce the PSA's. Confirmed participating talent will be announced throughout the campaign leading up to the November election.

    Grassroots voter registration activities will be led by Hip Hop Caucus community-based street teams in seventeen (17) cities across the nation: CA (Bay Area), FL (Miami), GA (Atlanta), IN (Indianapolis), MD (Baltimore), MI (Detroit), MO (St. Louis); NC (Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham), OH (Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus), PA (Philadelphia), TX (Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston), VA (Richmond), and DC (Washington, DC).

    Hip Hop Caucus President, Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., who helped create VOTE OR DIE! with Sean "Diddy" Combs in 2004, explains "No matter who wins in November, if large numbers of young people do not vote, then we all lose. It does not bode well for the future of our country, and our Democracy, if young people, particularly those who are not in college, are not engaged or involved in the electoral process. This campaign is critical in strengthening our Democracy and thus protecting our freedom."

    Half of young Americans ages 18-29 have never enrolled in college. According to research done by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE), a non-partisan research center, nearly 80 percent of the young voters who turned out on Super Tuesday had college experience. The disparity between college educated and non-college educated young voter participation is also evident by their turnout rates: one in four eligible young voters with college experience voted on Super Tuesday, compared with one in 14 eligible young voters with no college experience.

    Based on these statistics, the Hip Hop Caucus and T.I. have elected to focus on engaging those individuals who are part of the larger scope of the non-college and non-voting community.

    T.I., who is gearing up for the release on his highly anticipated new album, "Paper Trail" (Grand Hustle/Atlantic Records) on September 30th and has grown to truly be one of his generation's most captivating speakers explains, "It's an honor and a pleasure to be involved with the Hip Hop Caucus and be a part of such a worthy cause and important campaign. I look forward to urging the masses to take advantage of the right that I no longer have."

    This campaign will build on what worked in 2004 by using proven market outreach strategies in an electoral context. With programs including bus tours, street teams to register voters, voter education events during the Democratic and Republican Conventions and other events, we will integrate the audience building capacity of celebrities and media, and the data management and technology available for political organizations. The campaign will provide insights and data into the political behavior of this generally unengaged citizenry, and build sustainable community participation.

    Why you wanna trip on me?

    The Dark Knight: "A conservative movie about the war on terror?" ANDREW KLAVAN thinks so. The Wall Street Journal reports:

    "There seems to me no question that the Batman film "The Dark Knight," currently breaking every box office record in history, is at some level a paean of praise to the fortitude and moral courage that has been shown by George W. Bush in this time of terror and war. Like W, Batman is vilified and despised for confronting terrorists in the only terms they understand. Like W, Batman sometimes has to push the boundaries of civil rights to deal with an emergency, certain that he will re-establish those boundaries when the emergency is past."


    Really? But wait, there's more. Riddle him this:

    "Why is it then that left-wingers feel free to make their films direct and realistic, whereas Hollywood conservatives have to put on a mask in order to speak what they know to be the truth? Why is it, indeed, that the conservative values that power our defense -- values like morality, faith, self-sacrifice and the nobility of fighting for the right -- only appear in fantasy or comic-inspired films like "300," "Lord of the Rings," "Narnia," "Spiderman 3" and now "The Dark Knight"?"

    "After the show..."


    One Nation. Under a groove.

    "It's the After Party!"

    MJ's. Silverlake. Hercules and the Love Affair. The post show DJ set come down. A few thoughts:

    1/Can't get crunk to disco music.

    2/Wait a minute, let me finish.

    3/Now if you know me, you know that I love dancing to damn near anything ["give me the bass line, and I'll shake it"], ESPECIALLY dance and/or pop music, but for some reason last night I found myself, at times, unable to catch the beat/looking like I was trying to catch the beat. [Think the Elaine dance from Seinfeld with a little more shimmy and little less wild limb action.]

    4/If I do hear me some "Disco" music, it's gotta be a classic I can sing along to, meaning vocals are a plus.

    5/Speaking of which, is it wrong to secretly wish for some vocals on a track? I can only take so much throbbing indie dance take on the beats on repeat in the clubs of West Hollywood.

    6/Gay Males. Just as aggressive on the dance floor as straight males are with females. ESPECIALLY if you let said gay male "take the lead."

    7/It's official: Bartenders at gay bars all do the same dance when a track starts and its very similar to the turn, pivet, spin move Dennis so perfectly showcased on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, when Paddy's became a happening gay bar. [and the hips. can't forget about the hips. it's all in the hips.]

    8/Gay and/or Bisexual Males at any other gay bar: Dance til you sweat and then remove your shirt for extra emphasis. [cause I mean, it is protocol after all, right?] Gay and/or Bisexual Hipster Males at a gay bar: Dance til you sweat, but NEVER remove an article of clothing. F's up the look youknowhatimean? [unless it is a joke and/or you want to really show your love for the track the DJ spun into the mix. But, always remember to immediately put it back on after the fact. I actually saw two or three guys do this last night]

    9/Since I didn't attend the show and I ain't up on promos, for all I know Captain and Tenille could have been up there spinning and not Herc and the Love Affair.

    10/I may be wrong, but something tells me that tonight's crowd at the Dizzee Rascal show will look nothing like those boogieing with me and my peeps at the "Discotheque" last night.

    Just a hunch.

    Criminal?

    I grew up in them infamous streets Smokey sang about in Friday, "between Normandie and Western", Florence and Manchester. Not too long ago, our neighborhood got us a Jack and the Box on Florence and Western. Business is still booming. At all hours of the night. But I'm not surprised. This was a somewhat big deal for us "Hood dwellahs." It was closer [within walking distance] than the Burger King/McDonald's/Louisiana Fried Chicken Fried Chicken trifecta on Manchester and Normandie, was offering jobs to whomever stepped up in time with proof of worker's competence and was in search of employment, and brought a little variety [and competition] to a four way intersection with a housing project like Apt. building on one corner, a Burger Palace on the other, and a long standing family Cleaner's establishment on the other one. Now I am not the biggest Jack and the Box fan, but seriously, you don't understand that, again, this was a kind of big deal for that vacant lot on the southwest corner of Florence and Western to be populated in the end with a Jack and the Box. And kind of sad. But when businesses flee [and/or overlook you] and development is few and far between, you often take what you can get, and settle. This Jack and the Box was a sign of our hood "creeping on the come up." But that's the problem right? We can get a Jack in the Box, a McDonald's, a Burger King; these are guaranteed money makers right? Even we "poor" and/or underrepresented folks can afford and get hip to that right? Who needs a shopping center, parking garage, park, and/or swimming pool? People gotta eat right?

    Right.

    But with limits of course. The tide has now changed. This boy has been taken out the hood, and, if all goes well for those on high, so will fast food establishments. Here's hoping that it goes both ways, as racism, white flight, economic AND social fear take a back seat, and bring us "hood dwellahs" more of what we want, and, most importantly, more of what we need.

    Listen this is another open letter

    but in any case between 00 and 04 before ....well a dark pit of shit and fake names and insanity follows with lots and lots of people counting on Kookoo cherry not being able to prove things- and thats for another day- those people have not played chess with me.
    But i was sitting with some people going thru the 29 american express cards that i didnt know existed that were connected to a few HUNDRED bank accounts,and there were all the bills for Ryan Adams worst record and one of the worst records i can think of in rock and roll history ironically called"Riock and Roll " and it was paid for by ME and mostly by my child.
    and when i met Ryan we had a mild little flirtation, why not? but i made the deathly stupid decision to instead of just have very safe sex with him ( hes pretty dirty and man ive been around but im the virgin mary comparitevly) or make friends. no i fucking pimped my useless , ridiculaously terrible loser "Boyfriend" ( who ironically Edward Norton hates no one any more than this fuck and for good reason , yet Edwards OWN business manager put Barber up on West XXth street kitty corner from Edward, Barber could see into Edwards Apartment, and then he had his own Dean and Deluca account and an ABC Carpetand Home account and spent about 250,000 on furniture and another 600,000 dollars on travel, this loser who hasnt had a job since 98 - while Frances didnt have hardly enough to eat and i sure as hell didnt) i pimped Barber onto Ryan,"oooh hes a great producer"- maybe it wasbnt honourable0 i just wanted Barber gone, so maybe i used Ryan to get him gone,
    yeah you listen to this shit im listening to my i tunes on right now who names a record "Rock n Roll" what assholes do that?
    with these trebled up guitars my bandmate said sounded like "really horrific rem on steroids" all treble and compresssion and shit wirtten songs - but so what?
    well on my amex atthat time the 858 but also from bank accounts....theres 200,000 thousnad dollar checks written to Barber for "comissions" ididnt even know where the fuck he was ! but here on Amex 28 is the entire invoice for Ryan- your ENTIRE album and meals and drugs and Hotels and outboard gear and wasted fabullous guitars STRAIGHT OUT OF FRANCES"S TRUST FUND
    So you little shit, maybe you had NO IDEA right? is that why you used a hysterical voice mail of a very terrified and flipped out me- for your worst reviewed record and well deserved too, this record is shite totally one of the worst recordings ive ever heard yet Ryan you YOU spent 858,000 dolllars on this record of MY DAUGHTERS MONEY. so whats your paying me back plan? illbe in New York next week , you can start by working out your payment plan, because i will litiagate your thieving ass from here til eternity, your a thief and i used to think you had some subtsance to you then i find out your being managed or your money is by Victoria Blake? is that POSSIBLE? whata great PAL that lizard like cretin is t o you and i hope you had fun that week in :Jamaica" whilst more of my kids money was being shoved offshore- but thats not the point- Billy may have made my kid cry but i wasn't in the room - he's family and he always will be- he just laid his Billy trip on a person a little too young for it- I'm over it. but YOU RYAN, OWE FRANCES 858<000 dollars , so should isend the amex copies to Blake and he "staff"? because i would enjoy that very much,what a really good friend to leave you with someone whose been diagnosed as an "utter psychotic" by a professional foresnic psychiatrist.
    This record sucks i mean WOW!
    is this what youd like me to tell my kid a fraction of her money was stolen for this shite "Rock N Roll " cd shall i post the outboard gear and 4 seasons billls and fancy Nobu dinners, ahh so thats why you released two records at once where you getting paid a salary to let Gollum "produce" you cos we both know what a reall fucking genius that guy is, and this isnt about Gollum- hes inthe hands of the professionals, i walk away now knowing everything, all of it , its disgusting and its a fucking nuclear explosion of greed i dont think american history has ever seen but no other artist was ever involved in this scandalous vile behaviour ......but you were and i note to self; you suck on this record with your bile towards me, ande its gutless and cowardly and shit, and you know it,
    Pay me back Ryan, Pay Frances back. an dtake my fucking voice off that piece of shit.
    everyone in the world knows your giving your all and your all just isnt enough and you just keeep chugging- keep playng mediocre safe music some of wich i like- d an d then i saw these amex bills. it s makes me so sick you used my voice on this, really disgusting and horrific, you knew what they were doing to me and frances, and yet you just spent our money HER money in this specific case- does that makje youf eel like a big man ? stealing from a suicide? A MARTYRED HERO? fun for you. big man. wow. impressive.
    Yeah well theres nothing good about suicide and i should know- but to take my near suicidal depression and use it on my daughters paying fo ryour shit record, you get the point you can find me im sure- and ill be happy to work out a payment plan
    But as God Is My Witness Ryan you will pay back every fucking penny of this. 858,000 dollars for Rock n Roll ? wow you were living large- most people reading this dont even know what record or even artist im referring to , as your just this cult americana wanna be dylan thing- i think you have value as an artist but as a human your beneath contempt- let me know if im incorrect about the fact that you knew full and well that Barber /Gollum was using my money to pay for your self admitedly shit record- and let me know if i am wrong and your not with Blake, if you are your certainly getting what yousdeserve! no wonder you look like utter shit, and healthy as jaundice, HEY YOU KNOW WHEN YOU GO DOWN ITS HYSTERICAL. an excellent lyric wouldnt you think.?
    still shooting smack? hows that going for you?

    Inglewood. Always up to no good(?).

    The crackdown on "street gangs" has been taken from the streets to the football fields and basketball courts. Yahoo reports:

    "The NFL is stepping up its monitoring of on-field player activities to ensure that no one is flashing the hand signals of street gangs.

    The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that the league had hired experts to look at game tapes and identify players or team officials who might be using suspected gang signals. Violators would be warned and disciplined if the episodes recurred...The NFL took further notice after Paul Pierce of the NBA’s Boston Celtics was fined $25,000 in April for what the league said was a “menacing gesture” toward the Atlanta Hawks’ bench."

    FILE UNDER: PRIMARIES: Out of the Races & Onto the Tracks!


    Torn.


    I said:

    "So when I first saw this magazine cover this morning I let the initial shock wash over me and was ready to turn into one of those raging liberals, quick to jump to internet, type without thinking and shout silently for all like-minded individuals and [dissenters] to see.

    Then I took a walk.

    And I thought about it. Aside from the obvious jump in sales the New Yorker will probably see from such a "sensationalist" cover, I also think they are trying to get at the outrageous stories, labels, and sensationalistic zeal applied to both Barack, Michelle, his actions, her actions, his words, their peeps, etc. since this race got up and running. The only trouble is, I don't know if many people will stop to think about that. Many, like me at the outset, will remain testy and pissed, or roll their eyes and/or suck their teeth and look away. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not necessarily saying this cover is "the business" so to speak, just saying that I think I understand what they are coming from, despite the fact that I haven't read a lick of the accompanying article nor can I remember at the moment if the New Yorker is a left-leaning news magazine. [It is right? Again, I don't know. I'm a Vanity Fair man myself.]"


    They say:

    "Just in case you've missed it, the magazine's cover is a cartoon by veteran illustrator Barry Blitt depicting Sen. Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, in the Oval Office, presumably after his inauguration as president. The senator wears Islamic garb, including a turban, while the new first lady sports an Angela Davis-style Afro and has an AK-47 slung over her back. The couple bumps fists while an American flag burns in a fireplace whose mantel is topped by a portrait of Osama bin Laden.

    Anyone with an ounce of wit and a passing acquaintance with what's been going on during this presidential campaign will recognize Blitt's illustration as a compendium of the various false and defamatory allegations about the Obamas that have been spread across the Internet in what amounts to the cyber-spatial equivalent of an old-fashioned whispering campaign: In this fanciful netherworld, the presumptive Democratic nominee is unpatriotic, a secret Muslim and an appeaser of terrorists, while his wife is an anti-American harridan whose college thesis advocated black supremacy.

    New Yorker Editor David Remnick told the Huffington Post's Rachel Sklar that, in his view, the cartoon holds "up a mirror to the prejudice and dark imaginings about Barack Obama's -- both Obamas' -- past, and their politics. ... The fact is, it's not a satire about Obama -- it's a satire about the distortions and misconceptions and prejudices about Obama."

    Obvious as all that may be, it didn't prevent a panoply of grim-faced pundits from parading across the cable news channels solemnly pronouncing the cover either offensive or unfunny. Whatever it is that makes CNN's commentators "the best political team on television," it certainly isn't a sense of humor...
    It's interesting that this controversy -- which drew in both Obama and John McCain -- should have arisen in what's a kind of golden age for televised political satire. Still, in an interview with the New York Times, Comedy Central's Jon Stewart -- who is as sharp a political satirist as any now working -- said that jokes involving Obama often seem to fall flat with his audience. "People have a tendency to react as far as their ideology allows them," he said by way of explanation...Maybe we're not so much a humorless or overly sensitive people as we are a trivial one."

    FILE UNDER: A Moment of Clarity.

    Aight. A few things:

    (1) OOOH WEE! is that the beat from H-Town's Knockin' Da Boots? Yes, yes it is. Smart move Gentlemen Ricky. The kids will love it, and adults who known damn well they too old to be giving a damn about Pretty Ricky will have a hard time turning the dial when this comes on the radio. The television? Maybe, yes.

    (2) What is up with those pants? I dare y'all to walk to your local Burger Palace in some pants like that.

    (3) 4 Play? Really?

    (4) SLICKDELAPHANTE?!!!@#


    (5) You buff homie or are you sucking the fuck out of that stomach?

    (6) Uh, I don't know homie. A lot of that grindin' got you looking kind of fruity.

    (7)
    At the end of it all tho' I gotta admit, I kind of like this track. But mostly because it's so reminiscent of the original.

    (8)
    With that being said I must say that I swear to God if these fools become my new T-Pain with this album 80's Babies [meaning I tried my best to look away and not listen and/or care and wound up copping Epiphany (from a store -GASP-) and actually enjoying it and some of his non album guest starring hooks], then, then I just don't know what I'll do with myself. Shit, who am I kidding, I almost made this song my ringtone a while back:
