         I decided to write this blog after a decent day watching sports and an amazing evening listening to HIP HOP. With Hurricane Ike bearing down on the great state of Texas, many Houstonites flee there home in search of shelter away from a storm. A storm being touted as one of the worst in Texas history. Living in Austin, anticipation for these evacuees forced Longhorn officials to cancel the highly anticipated Southwestern Conference Rivalry renewal of Horns versus Hogs. With Austin's growth over the last 20 years our city has more than enough traffic issues from regular day to day life. So traffic being the main factor it has been rescheduled to 27th. Couldn’t have picked a worse day, Austin City Limits music festival (3 days , 8 stages , 130 bands) starts the 26th and will conclude on the 28th. Makes little sense considering this town will be descended upon by music lovers from all over the country as well as Arkansas’s football faithful. ACL will bring 5 times the amount of people Ike has! None the less I’m going to have to find a way to get to a TV in between watching Gnarls Barkley ,Eryka Badu, Del the Funky Homosapien and one of Austin’s own answer to Common and Talib, Bavu Blakes (who is a friend of mine)

 

        Being in the field I’m in, I’m being forced to work this weekend to support and ensure critical devices are shut down and brought up properly in anticipation of Ike. I couldn’t wait to get off and watch two evils in USC and OSU battle it out. I wish no one could win in this game however OSU fans undoubtedly irk me more with there delusions of granger, so USC is lesser of two evils on this Saturday. So a couple of my boys come over with two cases of Bud Light and begin to drink as we watch South Carolina blow three opportunities to tie Georgia in the fourth quarter, knuckleheaded dive attempt/fumble into the end zone being the hardest to watch. So case one is gone its halftime and OSU is proving to be overrated once again and I don’t think Wells would have made a huge difference. USC seemed to be superior in every aspect of the game. Most of all I was impressed by there defense. My roommate makes it home equipped with that "good" that makes you defy the laws of gravity if you drift on my catch. So for the first time in a while I decided to indulge and the game was putting me to sleep being so one sided. I decide to turn on the radio with my ipod connected and me and my boy freestyle for a bit but just aren’t feeling it. He doesn’t like to flow over the Juicy instrumental like I refuse to do it over a Pac beat. We move on and being that I’m aviated I wanted to flip on the new Nas album. Nas, I have always known to be an street intellect but on SLYFOX he is on a level of hip hop I have never heard. I have heard the song before however I really now just listened to it. SLYFOX has easily made it onto the TOP 10 hip hop songs of all time in my opinion. The intricacies of his flow along with his buckshot at propaganda left me speechless. I couldn’t believe some of the lines I heard in this song! No rapper has been bold to be as direct as he is in this song. NAS remains groundbreaking with his political views and rhyming style. When I first heard the genius of Nas’s “Rewind”, Papooses “Alphabetical Slaughter”, or Lupe’s “Gotta Eat”, in which his whole rap is a double entendre rapping from the perspective of a cheeseburger and a hustler I was blown away, amazed of the thought put into these song that represents what hip hop is all about. Anyways this blog was longer than intended and I doubt anyone will read it thru but if you do, its greatly appreciate it. Here are the lyrics from Nas’s “SLYFOX”

[Intro]
So we look at what's going on -- this as an EXTREME aggression, um
I'm also hearing about it from EVERYWHERE!
It's-it's on the islands, it's on the continent, it's here: it's everywhere!
And this is, if you will, a WAR -- An all out assault by...

 

[Verse 1:NaS]
The sly fox
Cyclops
We locked
in the idiot box
The video slots
Broadcast
The Waco Davidian plots
They own YouTube, Myspace
When this ignorant **** gon' stop?
They monopolizing news
Your views
And the channel you choose
Propaganda
Visual cancer
The eye
In the sky
Number five
On the dial
secret agenda
Frequency antenna
Doctor mind bender
Remote control
soul
Controller
Your brain holder
Slave culture
Game's over
What's a Fox characteristic?
Slick ****
Sensin'
Misinformation
Pimp the station
Over stimulation
Reception
Deception
Comcast digital Satan
The Fox has a bushy tail
And Bush tells
Lies and Foxtrots
So I don't know what's real [Chorus]

 

Watch what you watchin'
Fox keeps feeding us toxins
Stop sleeping
Start thinking
Outside of the box and
Unplug from The Matrix doctrine
But watch what you say Big Brother is watchin'
Watch what you watchin'
Fox keeps feeding us toxins
Stop sleeping
Start thinking
Outside of the box and
Unplug from The Matrix doctrine
But watch what you say Fox 5 is watchin'

 

[Verse 2:NaS]
The Fear Factor got you all rattled up
O' Reilly
Oh really?
No rally needed
I'll tie you up
Network for child predators, settin' 'em up
Myspace pimps, hoes, and sluts
Ya'll exploit rap culture, then ya'll flip on us
And you own the post, and ya'll **** on us
What is they net worth?
They gon' try to censor my next verse?
Throw 'em off the roof neck first
While I'm clicking my cursor
Reading blogs about the pressure they put on Universal
It gets worse while I'm clicking my mouse
While they kickin' my house
They figured us out
Why a **** go south
It's either he caught a body, no sleep they watchin'!
I watch CBS
And I See B.S.!
Tryin' to track us down with GPS
Make a **** wanna invest in PBS
[Chorus]
Watch what you watchin'
Fox keeps feeding us toxins
Stop sleeping
Start thinking
Outside of the box and
Unplug from The Matrix doctrine
But watch what you say Big Brother is watchin'
Watch what you watchin'
Fox keeps feeding us toxins
Stop sleeping
Start thinking
Outside of the box and
Unplug from The Matrix doctrine
But watch what you say Fox 5 is watchin'

 

[Verse 3:NaS]

They say I'm all about murder-murder and kill-kill
But what about Grindhouse and Kill Bill?
What about Cheney and Halliburton? (Halliburton?)
The backdoor deals
On oil fields
How's NaS the most violent person?
Ya'll don't know talent if it hit you
Bringin' up my criminal possession charges with a pistol (pistol)
I use Viacom
As my firearm
And let the lyrics split you
Who do you rely upon?
They shoot shells at Leviathan
I'm dealing with the higher form
**** if you care how I write a poem?
Only Fox that I love was the red one
Only black man that Fox loves is in jail or a dead one!
Red rum
Political bedlam
Don't let the hype into your eyes and ear drum
Murdoch on Fox
Not 18 with Barracas
And he hate Barack cause
He march with the marchers

 

[Outro]
I pledge allegiance to the fair and balanced truth.
Not the biased truth
Not the liar's truth
But the highest truth
I will not be deceived
nor will I believe
In the Propaganda
I will not fall for the Okey-Doke
I am tuned-in

[NaS]
Watch, cause they're watching
Watch what you're watching Better watch, cause they're watching
Watch what you're watching Me-Me-Media
Misleading ya
Watch what you're watching
