    :ref:

    Video gangsters,
    manufactured new stereotypes,
    spitting "I" centered egos
    profiled to fit the hype.
    Pumping punany smack up
    against phallic camera lens,
    packing hi-caliber penis replacements,
    blowing smoke on others sins.

    Over accessorized court jesters,
    commercial advertising pimps
    branded with grafitti and corporate logos
    builds new bigotry for societal limps.
    Bottom line ghetto cultural macks
    annoucing how much they've made,
    black dignity resellers forget
    that--even Judas got paid.

    :eek:oops:

    Yes indeed, just because you're getting paid, doesn't make it right. I suppose the money makes some blind to what's so painfully obvious to others. This was so on point, poet.

    Just Seems Money is All

    It's nothing new, it's just gets more play--I just wanted to say something that reveals that I am aware of it and that all money ain't good money--Ra

    Preachin'

    I going into the preachin' business but not from the traditional aspect, but from a secular, real world perspective that addresses problems we need to handle in the hear and now. I will bill myself as the Most Irreverent Amun-Ra. My goal will be to get people to move in the right direction and not sit on the duff waiting for something to happen--Amun-Ra
