Alright folks, tighten up those Huggies’ straps, shit’s about to get real. Firstly, I’ve got so many facets of this story/post/topic to cover, so I’ve done my best to make these thoughts as concise as possible, as to not lose you, because this right here… is very VERY important, for your whole life!

I’ve been listening to a lot dope, new music of late and that seems like a good place to start. Run The Jewels 2 is out in stores now, and available for purchase here. It’s extremely dope and one of my favorites of  2014. There’s a record on it (Lie Cheat Steal), where Killer Mike absolutely demolishes his verse with tons of eye opening perspective. The verse in mention can been seen below, courtesy of the folks over at RapGenius.com. The most important bars are in bold and red below, and I’ve included a stream of the record if you’re down to listen to it:

[Verse 2: Killer Mike of Lie Cheat Steal, from Run The Jewels 2]

I’m fly as a pegasus, that’s no embellishment
I’m here to pain the whole game, where the Excedrin
Good pussy, good marijuana that be my medicine
And I’m a mixture of MJG and the Weathermen
A revolutionary bangin’ on my adversaries
And I love Dr. King but violence might be necessary
Cause when you live on MLK and it gets very scary
You might have to pull your AK, send one to the cemetery
We overworked, underpaid, and we underprivileged
They love us, they love us (why?)
Because we feed the village
You really made it or just became a prisoner of privilege?
You willing to share that information that you’ve been given?
Like who really run this?
Like who really run that man that say he run this?
Who who really run that man that say he run this, run run run run this?
Like who really fund this?
Like who really fund who say he fund this?
Like who in the world gon’ tell Donald Sterl who to put on the “you can’t come” list?
Now don’t be silly
Who the fuck gon’ bully me if I got a billi?
If I got a billi and the bitch recording me I’m like who cares
What I wouldn’t be is on TV stutterin’ ta-ta-talkin’ scared
So the question is when Don’s at home with that traitor ass bitch alone
Who’s that voice on the side of the phone that shakes and rattles his bones?
Could it be the man behind the man behind the man behind the throne?
Gone

[Lie Cheat Steal, from Run The Jewels 2]

Still with me? Alright, let’s back track now to seemingly a few days ago, where a bunch of Sony’s emails were hacked and leaked. Overnight, as if we weren’t already bombarded with fuckery for news, tons of new “more juicy” gossip started surfacing. Frankly, I don’t care if Alex Trebek wanted to quit Jeopardy after 100 years, give or take 50 or so years. Sarcasm people. Keep up. But whether you were actually interested in the leaked emails, or stories that emerged from them, the end result, in my opinion was still accomplished. There was a general shift of focus on what we were essentially forced to pay attention to. If we do some simple extrapolation, it’s easy to sum up the amount of time you, or I spend being caught up, pun intended, in the web. Kind of funny they named the internet, the world wide web, but that’s for another day.

So we’ve got leaked emails via Sony, and a supposedly controversial movie release, “The Interview“, which supposedly garnered threats from North Korea, after the first trailers surfaced. Honestly, we weren’t sure how real the threats were then, and even with Sony officially pulling the movie from theaters, we’re still not sure. Are you? Let’s see what NBC thinks…

So the government said so. They said North Korea did it and that’s about as much as we’re going to get. We don’t really have another choice do we? Well, yes… yes we do.

You really made it or just became a prisoner of privilege?
You willing to share that information that you’ve been given?
Like who really run this?
Like who really run that man that say he run this?
Who who really run that man that say he run this, run run run run this?
Like who really fund this?
Like who really fund who say he fund this?
