It may come as a shock to you, but the people at the Wall Street Journal are not fans of the hip-hop, and are particularly not fans of America’s #1 hip-hop fan, Barack Obama! The nation’s very important business newspaper has dedicated a number of column inches to outraged recapitulation of terrible rap lyrics, all of which is hilarious, but we feel the following set-up is the best of the bunch:

More from Lil Wayne, a native of New Orleans, the nation’s perennial murder capital, who devotes his ingenuity to making black-on-black homicide sound fly:

And then there’s some rap words, about murder. Kudos to the nameless copy editor who removed the scare quotes around “fly” at the last minute, and kudos to Barack Obama, for making murder rap the official national anthem, replacing the old national anthem, which was about white people killing each other for no good reason.

    Next thing you know, Obama will be promoting that negro jazz and turning our nation's white youth into marijuana-smoking miscegenationists.

      That'd definitely earn my vote next time around!

    And shame on him for listening to that Steve Miller Band with their odious "Take the Money and Run," which makes light two people conducting a home invasion, shooting their victim and escaping to Mexico. Is this the message America needs right now Mr. President? Really? And don't even get me started on that filthy Ronald Reagan biography, which glorifies divorce and the Hollywood lifestyle. It's a good thing the Republican Party has higher standards than that.

    The WSJ Eds. then went to their rooms to listen to death rock, which they described in a subsequent editorial as 'bitchin'.

    Dear Thomas Chatterton Williams:

    Don't be a hater, playa. Word, also.

    Bam only likes old will smith and the new roscoe dash joint. Someone call lil' wayne's attorney about copyright infraction. how sweet would it be for wsj to have to settle out of court with a hot boy (hot boyz crew foo!) for unlicensed use. my answer is super-sweet- that's how sweet.

    The Republican Party lost what remained of its moral authority after successfully fielding a Presidential candidate who literally slept with a monkey for cold hard cash.

    …Mr. Obama is certainly not responsible for hip-hop's grip on black America, or for Mr. Carter's ideas and behavior. But what president would ever let Marilyn Manson drop by the White House? Is Jay-Z any better?

    First of all, Jay Z is totally better than Marilyn Manson, unless you're talking about the Bowling for Columbine cameo. But Marliyn's "sweet dreams" cover is kick ass so it's kind of a toss up for scared honkeys. A creep with too much makeup or a fake drug dealer turned impressario? Who to invite to the beer summit. Get that new half-Chinese guy that's supposed to tell me what to do in here pronto!

    But it is true that BamBam is blameless when it comes to the compulsive nature of the way negros listen to their own music.

    I guess the heads over at the Journal are pining for the days of Black Moon, GangStar and De La Soul- back before rap got sucked into their machine. Like Zack Galifonakis and what not.

    • snoopyfan2010

      I wish for the days of Public Enemy and rap that made you think.

  • Obama listens to rap music? That must make him a drug-snortin', car-jackin' gang-bangin' thug. Or a suburban fifteen-year-old boy.

      Or someone who was young in the 1980s; ie now old but a whipper-snapper compared to WSJ writers and readers.

    The author of this piece, Thomas Chatterton Williams, "grew up in awe of Tupac Shakur, Biggie Smalls, and the parade of bling-bedecked rap stars he saw on Black Entertainment Television…" <a href="http://(” target=”_blank”>(

    But Marcus Bachmann must have cured him so now he can lead a productive life consisting solely of telling people not to do what he used to do. It's a living.

  • edgydrifter

    I will donate 100 hours of volunteer labor to the DNC just to hear the president answer any question–ANY question–about his policies with "cuz I'm young and I'm black and my hat's pulled low."

  • JustPixelz

    Hip hop certainly lacks the joyfulness of, say, "Salt In The Wound" which includes this "fly" lyric:

    Over three thousand died
    As the Towers fell in flames
    And, the Islam jihadists
    Proudly took the blame

    And this happy reference to the "culture of death" (or spitting):

    You wanna spit on their graves
    And call it CULTURE

    They just don't write 'em like that anymore.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      I really liked the way the Greg Kihn incorporated his last name into his album titles back in the early 1980's.

  • housbinfarteen

    The Wall Street Journal's favorite song is " Tie me Kangaroo Down Sport".


    Because that's Rupert Murdock's favorite song.

    The WSJ prefers that blacks die the correct way: in a house fire where the fire department refuses to show up, because they don't have proper receipts for their taxes.

  • natoslug

    At least they're covering the important news and not wasting our time with fluff pieces.

  • MiniMencken

    Yeah! And while we are at it, Mr. Williams, lets go through the taxpayer funded Library of Congress recording collection assembled by the Lomaxes and destroy all of the material that isn't as upbeat as "Jimmy Crack Corn." . That Ledbelly was a murderer who sang about taking morphine, you know. Then we can move on to the notorious Johnny Cash, who sang "I killed a man in Reno, just to watch him die," in a prison, to actual convicts!

    • axmxz

      I shot a man in renal, he took a while to die. Kidneys can take a lot of punishment.

    Who says print journalism is dead?

    I am happy to hear that the Ghetto Boys' "Still" is now the national anthem. That will put commies in their place!

    Tomorrow's WSJ will feature an editorial blaming Obama for leaving chicken bones on the sidewalks of Pennsylvania Ave.

    The Wall St Journal is all about the money. Did you read the article? Mission accomplished.

  • nachoproblem

    Hooo boy. Freedom means you can't eat the wrong mustard OR listen to the wrong music? It's getting so I can hardly keep up.

    In the late 1920s the NY Times had a front page editorial condemning the use of melodies from JS Bach being appropriated in that "jazz" music, so this is an old old story…
