      Nas, Streets Disciple

      Now I don't buy a lot of music, especially anything with cursing in it these days. But I had to support the Bro. Nas as I believe he is by far one of the greatest lyricists in rap.

      Well, its a dope album. There a few cuts I can't vibe with, but its my culture and spirituality talking, so what can I say? Otherwise its full of streetwise observation and a little 360 science here and there.

      Its a double album and its worth the over pricing to support what will be one of his best lyrical offerings yet. And Salaam did the production so the beats are classic NYC grimey.

      Be sure to check out the Tribute to Rakim (of Eric B. fame) the song is his "unauthorized biography," its nice.

      Bro. Nas has always alternately fascinated and repulsed me at the same time. i will be sure to check out his latest. Davey D is polling folks on their feelings about Nas' "Coon Picnic" (www.daveyd.com):

      Hip Hop Fridays: "The American Way" and "The Coon Picnic" (Nas Lyrics)
      www.blackelectorate.com/a...sp?ID=1257

      "The American Way" by Nas featuring Kelis

      Verse 1:

      Spot build rocker
      little papa killed Hoffa
      beard little longer
      feel strong and I'll stop you
      drill sergeant
      still thorough
      wheelbarrows of distilled vodka
      Get me real bonkers like Will Ferrell on cat tranquilizer
      Rap guys get bank
      and think they Messiahs
      but they liars
      Vote for who now?
      You're red, white and blue?
      I'm American too
      but I ain't with the President's crew
      What you peddling and who you peddling to?
      You ain't got the ghetto with you
      Trying to lead my sheep to the slaughterhouse
      Talking bout "Rap the Vote"
      you ain't thought about
      The Black vote mean nathan (nothing)
      Who you gonna elect
      Satan or Satan?
      In the hood nothing is changing
      uh
      We ain't got no choices.
      Who to choose?
      Ten years ago they were trying to stop our voices
      and end Hip-Hop.
      They some hypocrites
      Condoleeza Rice
      I don't really get this chick
      Tell her if she really ever cared about poor schools
      about poor children
      then she gotta prove
      that she ain't just another coon Uncle Tom fool
      Like these emcees
      gotta give them the rules
      Lie to the youth
      Uncle Tom, you confused?
      Might as well give the Hip-Hop community a noose
      Need a truce with the gangs and some food for the hungry.
      On Kerry's nuts
      he look at you like a monkey
      You emcees on that old slavery path
      The Bushes'll look at your ass and laugh
      See it's all about community
      let's help ourselves
      Cops brutalize us get dealt with
      with shells
      It's our turn
      It's bout time we win
      Need somebody from the hood as my councilman
      uh

      Chorus: (sung by Nas's Fiance Kelis)

      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way
      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way
      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way
      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way

      Verse 2:

      Up in the steam room chilling exfoliating the skin
      Israeli men
      conversating on ends
      probably businessmen
      I sense good taste
      and they watch us
      the spot's an expensive place
      Manhattan, New York
      I'm trying to keep steaming
      It's good for the lungs
      had plans for the evening
      This man leans in
      his boys laughing
      Now I'm the spokesperson for Black Men
      This always happens
      "Since all Black Women care about is who got dough
      And all we do is call them either ***** or a Black hoe."
      I say "first, Brother you ain't gotta be that cold.
      Since you ignorant
      I'ma show you how the facts go."
      The biggest examples of scandal in history
      Were Monica Lewinksy or Donald Trump's pimping spree
      Most woman who love Giovanni or Gucci
      Are pretentious non-Black groupies
      or floozies
      But who are we to blame?
      not the dames
      It's a man-made game
      in essence all women the same
      Beautiful creatures
      Black girls birthed the Earth
      So they deserve to earn Man's purse
      Matter fact
      I'm about to go shopping with my dime
      Catch you cowards the next time
      the next rhyme
      uh

      Chorus: (Kelis)

      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way
      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way
      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way
      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way

      I don't care about the runaways
      I don't care about who's gay
      I don't care about dying of AIDS
      But I care that I got paid
      Who even cares about the president?
      I think they're making a mistake
      I don't care about the hurricane
      As long as my family's safe
      I don't care about the candidates
      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way

      Can we make a change?
      You know it's not overnight
      Let's start the fight
      Can we make a change
      You know it's not overnight
      Let's start the fight
      Yeah I think about this everyday that's the American Way

      "These Are Our Heroes" ("Coon Picnic") by Nas

      Chorus:

      Let's hear it
      one for the coons on UPN 9 and WB
      Who "yes Massa" on TV
      what ever happened to Weezy?
      The Red Foxes?
      Never got Emmys but were real to me
      Let's hear it
      two for the spooks who do cartwheels
      Cause they said they played they parts well
      Now they claim caviar
      hate that oxtail
      Lambda Sigma Phi badge on lapel
      Whitey always tell him
      "Ooh he speak so well"
      Are you the one we look to?
      The decent Negro?
      The acceptable Negro?
      hell naw
      But they say
      "These are our heroes"

      Verse 1:

      Uh
      Massa used to breed us to be bigger to go play
      Athletes of today in the NBA
      make me proud
      But there's something they don't say
      Keep getting accused for abusing White @#%$
      From OJ to Kobe or let's call him Toby
      First he played his life cool
      just like Michael
      Now he rock ice too just like I do
      Yo, you can't do better than that?
      The hotel clerk who adjusts the bathroom mat?
      Now you lose sponsorships that you thought had your back
      Yeah you beat the rap jiggaboo fake nigga you
      You turn around then you @#%$ on Shaq
      Who woulda knew
      Mr. Goodie-Two-Shoes
      He love a little butt crack
      got enough cash
      Little kids with they bus pass
      who look up to you
      To do something for the youth
      stupid spoof
      But you let them use you as an example
      They would rep
      but our heroes got they hands full

      Chorus:

      Let's hear it
      one for the coons on UPN 9 and WB
      Who "yes Massa" on TV
      What ever happened to Weezy?
      The Red Foxes?
      Never got Emmys but were real to me

      The acceptable Negro?
      hell naw
      But they say
      "These are our heroes"

      Verse 2:

      You Homey The Clown, bowtie, apple pie, Bo Jangles
      But we love Bo Jangles.
      we know what he came through
      But what's your excuse, duke?
      You talk Black
      but your album sound like you'd give your nuts for a plaque.
      You don't ride for the facts like
      um say Scarface
      You don't know what you feel,
      y'all too safe
      Election done came and went
      y'all worked so hard for it
      and in the end we all got dicked
      These are our heroes
      thanks a lot public school systems still rot
      Still harassed by cops
      snitches on blocks
      selling they peoples out
      Some real folks with clout
      Tavis Smiley, Michael Eric Dyson
      Stokely Carmichael
      let's try to be like them
      Nicky Giovanni poetical Black female
      Jim Brown to the people who sing well from Fela
      to Miriam Makeba
      The mirror says you are the next American leader
      So don't be
      accepting new "We are the World" records
      These pickaninnies get with anything to sell records
      Cause it's trendy to be
      the conscious MC
      But next year
      who knows what we'll see?

      Ha Ha these are our heroes

      Chorus:

      Let's hear it
      one for the coons on UPN 9 and WB
      Who "yes Massa" on TV
      What ever happened to Weezy?

      yea Nas is dope I like "Just A Moment" featuring up and coming rapper Quan. yall be on the look out for him I seen him in the Source magazine a few months ago and he had the dead prez shirt on and nothin but red, black, and green on.

      Also I like that track "Live Now" thats dope.
      2pac aka Makaveli the best rapper ever I wish you was alive to lead the Revolution. R.I.P. my nigga. Fucc Feminem and 50 cent and all these other pussy ass niggaz makin stupid pop music.We dont need hip hop to turn into wigger hop. All these rappers talkin loud but they aint sayin 5% of the real shit Pac rapped about. Nas is the best rapper alive and even he aint no where near Pac's level.

      His next album is gonna be called "NASDAQ" (you know...like the Stock Market?). I hope he's talking about blowing it up, LOL!!!

      But what I'm trippin' off right now is this song by Nas' (current? former?) homeboy Cormega called "62 Pickup" on his new album "The Testament." That **** was so beautiful, I wanted to cry.

      His new album is sick. I think Disc 1 has the tightest cuts but the tribute to Rakim (the god) is hot to def.

      I'm way into this record. Disc 1 has been in heavy rotation in the truck, but I'm feeling disc 2 as well.
