Jay-Z vs the Game: Lessons for the American Primacy Debate

This in an article comparing Hip Hop battles to international relations. It's very well researched I have to say, you gotta lave the Stillmatic freestyle being talked about in a foreign policy magazine.

Defending Michael

This post is some links to defend Michael Jackson from some of the things that have been said about him

First is this GQ article explaining how MJ was framed by extortionists

This is how these people are living now

Look at Michael's face when he is asked questions abot molestation, does it look like a guilty person's face?






Here are some pics showing Michael's skin disease, which proves he did have a problem that was beyond his control


People shouldn't question Michael's blackness after watching this video of James Brown practically handing the crown to MJ and MJ acknowledging his roots


And he did a video showing Egyptians as Black something few people in Hollywood ever do

The only thing MJ is guilty of is of being a weirdo, that probably happened becuase of the way he grew up but
a lot of stuff said about him simply wasn't true or where exaggerated.

Man in the Mirror

I think this video represents everything that MJ should be remembered for. Just being the greatest entertainer we have ever seen, being a beautiful person and telling us to strive to be our best and to help others.

For Once In My Life
It's Gonna Feel Real Good,

As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favourite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin' My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?
Pretending Not To See
Their Needs
A Summer's Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top
And A One Man's Soul
They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya' Know
'Cause They Got Nowhere
To Go
That's Why I Want You To
Know

I'm Starting With The Man In
The Mirror

Kind Of Love
It's Time That I Realize

A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody's Broken Heart
