Jay-Z and Beyonce to Host Obama Fundraiser, They are The 1%

My Girl Look So Good She Look Like A Bag of  Money...

Beyonce and Jay-Z
Let Them Eat Cake
Surely they know this...Beyowulf might not... She claims that she has been "middle class" all her life, but her middle class is different from my interpretation of "middle class". A fashion designer mother and a music producer father, private tutors, living in a mansion is a bit different from an accountant or realtor parent.

But Jay-Z grew up in the streets at least that's what he tells us in his god forsaken repetitive lyrics in each mediocre Blue Print and now Watch the Throne album he craps out whenever he feels like pissing out something every couple of years. He lived a hard life in the projects, was a drug dealer, had to hustle and struggle, etc...all of those components that used to make hip hop an art form before it became name dropping the popular car of the minute, (Maybach, Phantom or Buggati), how low their chain is, how much ice their watch has, how much weed they smoke or how much their liquor cost, how they can buy the bar and how they can take any body's hoe because they are the coolest nigga in the world.

Jay-Z loves to present himself as a upgraded thug intellectual and I think that's mostly because he's old as hell and by comparison to Beyonce or Wacka Flocka, being called "smart" next to them is like being the smartest kid in the room with Down Syndrome. If the conversation is purely about rap or New York, then he's good. If it's anything else, it's bad, shockingly stupid. So it amazes me that he is hosting a party for a man that wants to raise his taxes. Someone who thinks he is a fat cat and an opportunistic leech. Maybe Obama isn't paying close attention, but Jigga Man utters GOP talking points out of those fat, dry rat lips.

Remember when Occupy Wall street was in the height of it's popularity? Jigga man decided to capitalize on the movement and commission shirts that said "Occupy All Streets", cool right? Except his cheap, swap meet, b.s. clothing line didn't donate any money to the movement. Jay-Z stated confusion as to what the mission or purpose of occupy was and said, "When you just say that 'the one percent is that,' that's not true. Yeah, the 1 percent that's robbing people, and deceiving people, these fixed mortgages and all these things, and then taking their home away from them, that's criminal, that's bad. Not being an entrepreneur. This is free enterprise. This is what America is built on." He goes on to say, "What's the thing on the wall, what are you fighting for? I'm not going to a park and picnic, I have no idea what to do, I don't know what the fight is about. What do we want, do you know?"

Did you forget where you came from Jay? What is the fight about? Didn't you come from the projects? Don't you try in vain to convince me that you a the Godfather or some type of hit man? Don't you try to convince me you are level headed, real, how hard you struggled, that you were damn near homeless sleeping on a card board box? Are you truly so unrelatable now, that all we have in common are black t-shirts? One of the criticisms of Watch the Throne and hip hop in general is the intense love of capitalism to a fault and the fact that the album was mediocre.  Where is the revolutionary satire that told stories of the plight of the poor and disenfranchised? That's what made rap popular and an art form that the suburban kids could relate to. Or is it just part of the art until they become part of the 1% and then they sell out to the highest bidder? Just sign the check...

 I can say for myself, I have never been homeless, lived in the projects, been exposed to drugs, or any destructive things that makes for good music. I have two parents that are still together, went to private school, college, law school, no kids, didn't get pregnant in high school, nothing bad...but if somehow I got $1Million, just one, I wouldn't just forget my entire life prior to getting money and then wonder "how the other side lives" or "why are these people pissed off about banks making record profits after the government bailed them out?" That's not a difficult concept. Maybe it is for him, maybe he got high on his on supply from back in the days when he was "dealing", and some of his brain cells were irreparably damaged. 

Love The Camel Toe?
I have said numerous times, if you have nothing of value to say, just stop talking and retire, and it appears, that now is the time. You have nothing of value to say. Just because you host a $40,000 a plate fundraiser at your club, means nothing when you are blithely unaware that you are people that Obamas constituents want to raise taxes on if not string up and send to the metaphorical Bastille. Every substandard trash song that you "artists" put out, every video that you are in where you flaunt your wealth, real or rented, every lyric, is part of the problem. It's a "let them eat cake" to everyone, and you don't have the artistic integrity to make the music good while you continue to steal money from the brainless and tasteless so you can wear Louis flip flops on the beach of St. Tropez with the Weave Wife.

You Mean Romney 2012?
While I recognize the huge influence of hip hop,  and pop artists on young, impressionable people. I think it's imperative that people learn to think for themselves, instead of  depending on these artists to educate and to think for them. Because, clearly, critical thinking skills isn't a strong point. Otherwise, my twitter feed wouldn't still have "Boycott Chris Brown" stupidity posts from the still manipulated media.  When we become as a society become less celebrity-driven, thinking what they say or do should be accepted as truth, then regardless of their stance on issues, people won't let it affect them. This is especially true for our youth. They must learn to think for themselves, gather knowledge and read. Celebrities are NOT gods or smart.They are human beings with their own thoughts and ideas and those thoughts and ideas are dictated by their labels and corporate puppet masters.

Jay-Z, the King of Hip Hop? He is a disease of this era of materialistic crap rap, who should be laughed out of the studio with his one percent mantra.

Obama you lie down with dogs you wake up with weaves.
