Big Ben Posted August 27, 2011 Author Report Share Posted August 27, 2011 I just wanna bring something to your attention again: "If the Palestinians took up arms, went into Israel and killed all the Jews, it'd be alright" .-Professor Griff (Founding member of Public Enemy) in Melody Maker (May 28, 1988 Issue) This is one of the clearly insane things members of Public Enemy have said over the years. Now if you excuse me, I'll go back to listening Otis. Don't believe the Hype. P.S. Just in case ya'll wanna start something about me being disrespectfull: I've heard every PE album more than one time. I know they are Legends. But so is Hove. Difference is Chuck D is the one saying it, and if I remember correctly Griff was reprimanded for saying it by fellow members of their group. I believe you think they are legends, you quoted them, so no argument there. Though I have a more difficult time placing Jay-Z on the same status as PE. Problem is Jay-Z has never really done anything, in my opinion, that has made a huge impact. Throughout his career he's repeatedly followed other, emulating their style, and basically holding onto their coattails. I believe we're seeing it now, with Kanye. Just my opinion. And it's okay if you guys jump on me for being disrespectful: For I fear not the internet gangsta. J/K And if we need to use quotes just a quick "Kanye stupid quote" search come up with plenty. "I'M A POP ENIGMA. I LIVE AND BREATHE EVERY ELEMENT IN LIFE. I ROCK A BESPOKE SUIT AND I GOT TO HAROLD'S FOR FRIED CHICKEN. IT'S ALL THESE THINGS AT ONCE, BECAUSE, AS A TASTEMAKER, I FIND THE BEST OF EVERYTHING. THERE'S CERTAIN THINGS THAT BLACK PEOPLE ARE THE BEST AT AND CERTAIN THINGS THAT WHITE PEOPLE ARE THE BEST AT. WHATEVER WE AS BLACK PEOPLE ARE THE BEST AT, I'M A GO GET THAT. LIKE, ON CHRISTMAS, I DON'T BUY ANY FOOD THAT TASTES WHITE. AND WHEN I GO TO PURCHASE A HOUSE I DON'T WANT MY CREDIT TO LOOK BLACK." ""IF IT WASN'T FOR RACE MIXING THERE'D BE NO VIDEO GIRLS. ME AND MOST OF OUR FRIENDS LIKE MUTTS A LOT. YEAH, IN THE HOOD THEY CALL 'EM MUTTS." Sorry for the cap's, didn't feel like typing it all up, and the source had it this way. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
