White House events always draw a lot of attention. Most of that attention is focused on the guest list. Fans and supporters of President Obama will fawn over the prestigious guests while his opponents will find and exploit the questionable attendees. While critics slammed the Obama Administration for inviting Common [Sense] for his comments about George W. Bush (“burn a Bush” and “fuck Bush”) they missed other lyrics that should’ve been equally concerning. However, today they seem to be a little more fitting.
On the DJ Skee and Nu Jersey Devil mixtape “You Know What it is Vol. 3” Common [Sense] does the intro to The Game’s track “Where I’m from”. While shouting out to Chicago he says “Chicago to Compton, gangbanging is the revolution.” that appears to have been recorded over the phone; not uncommon for artists on mixtapes to do. That can be heard here in the preview of the track. (click “preview” button on right)
And now, from the Weekly Standard blog:
This evening in New York City, President Obama will be fundraising with “NBA heroes,” according to his spokesman. Those “heroes” include Michael Jordan (who is also a failed baseball player), Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning, and, perhaps most interestingly, Carmelo Anthony.
Anthony helped make the pro-drugs YouTube video called “Stop Snitchin.”

> Running guns like a boss (Fast and Furious)
> Snatching that paper, even from the elderly ($500+ Billion taken from Medicare)

Shall I keep going?
