good evening internets, that's if you're still livin'.. (i'll stop now)
i've been ridiculously busy, and i tried to re-emerge onto the blogosphere last night, but HL and i were thinking differently about the length of a post, and i need to re-edit my long winded rants so that they jive better with our original idea.. but anyway..
like you, i was anticipating jay electronica's oft delayed "act II" all day on sunday. he has been telling DJ's, bloggers and other scenesters that he wanted to release it on his birthday (sept. 19) and i even heard that he told the audience at one of his shows that it was ready. so, the entire internet seemed to hold it's breath, and f5 it up in hopes that it would finally drop. alot of people were mad skeptical(and rightly so, it would seem)because jay has gone thru a handful of release dates and deadlines before and seems to have no problem lying about it.
so long story short, it didn't drop. there was plenty of "fuck jay elec", as well as a slew of "i told you so's". the real drama began the following day, when a Mr. Carter Whitelow wrote an open letter claiming that HE wrote act II, and some other shit. i won't get into the details, you can read the letter here.basically, dude is claiming that 'act II' wont see the light of day because jay elec stole it. or something. so the story is that 'act II' isn't being released because "legal issues will arise for IP theft" (not IP address, internet talk shit, but intellectual property)
now, walk with me here.. remember when an old video surfaced of jay elec and benzino chopping it up about eminem, jimmy iovine, and satan ?
YOU DON'T? *gasps*
that's because,it was merely a footnote on most of the major blogs, but damn if that video didn't have a lot of fucked up dialogue.. (if you haven't already, you can watch the video here.)
"You ain't waging war against [Eminem]... it's against the same power that's backing George Bush. The same people that Greenspan bow down to, the same people that Bush bow down to, the same people that Jimmy Iovine bow down to. The international banks, that create war."
so this dude is obviously onto some shit. and i say this why? to bring your attention to the biggest conspiracy of them all..
sunday night, i was doing my usual, chopping it up with some of the other hip-hop heads in the nahright comment section, and i made this statement, pretty much just trying to get some laughs from the other jokesters, and i honestly never gave it another thought. i'm posting photographic evidence here, because well....it's deeper than rap..
shouts to the homie, hopp.
now over the next couple days, as i was browsing jay electronica's facebook (his chosen medium to address the carter whitelow allegations) and i saw THIS
THE FUCK ?
so 5 hours after i post a comment on nah, someone takes the EXACT comment and posts it on jay's facebook wall? HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THIS? coincidence? perhaps some lurker/commenter who thought i was funny, and wanted to use my clever wit to take a shot at jay? who is "RealHipHopHead" and how did they get my intellectual property?
..maybe. or maybe there are bigger things at work here. maybe the same people who jacked my comment are the same people who got bush into office? maybe the people who 'swagger-jacked' me are the same people who are trying to get satan's icy grip all over hip-hop ?
...it's deeper than rap.
