Here is the video for Kid Cudi’s song Make Her Say: This song is off of Kid Cudi’s album Man On The Moon: The End of Day which will be released on September 15, 2009.

Joel Ortiz has a new video called Food For Thought and sponsored by nahright.com. Joel Ortiz basically does a version of Common’s “I used to love H.E.R.”

Here is Lonely Island’s On A Boat song mixed with Bert and Ernie on a boat:

Hat Tip Andrew Moylan

4080Records.com has a neat roundup of stories about hip-hop and politics is such places as Senegal, Guinea, and Bolivia.

I found this video of Nas being interviewed by eccentric Canadian host Narduwar.
Narduwar interviews are always highly entertaining.

Obama Signed Up For A Hard Job

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

Recently, Barack Obama has taken to blaming George W. Bush for problems such as our economy. It is true George W. Bush did screw up the economy pretty well but eventually Obama is going to have to take credit for it.

Obama signed up for a bad job when he ran for President. Being President normally is a hard job. It becomes an even harder job when you are President and start off with a recession and two wars going on.

I guess the only really good part about starting off with a country in a lousy condition to run is it is pretty easy to make things seem better.

All Shout Does Is Make You Lose Your Voice

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

All Shout Does Is Make You Lose Your Voice. Apparently conservatives and Republicans, led on by Rush Limbaugh, have taken on the idea that yelling is the way to win a public policy debate.

There is a new trend that is happening increasingly where conservatives are showing up at “townhall” meeting with Congressmen and yelling at them to indicate dissaproval with Obamacare. The conservatives are protesting and being disruptive in a way that is reminiscent of the worst activism of those on the left of the political spectrum.

The protesting is not helping the Republican’s cause of opposing Obamacare legislation as this may make the Republican’s look bad and increase the ease with which the legislation goes through.
