Mos Def is DA MAN

Posted by Anntichrist S Coulter on April 14, 2007 – 5:50 am

The Katrinacrat Blog, Donnie’s creative communal conflagration, has become one of my new favorite blogs (the more NOLA blogs I read, the more homesick I get, but hey, at least now I can keep up with the REAL news down there, as opposed to the uber-white-redneck-republicunt version outta the Baton Rouge “media” {one evolutionary step up from Hee-Haw}, and y’never know, I may hit the fucking powerball yet one of these fuckin’ days and GET TO TO GO THE HELL HOME.) — anyway, all of my blathering aside, Peacechick Mary posted a U-Toob clip of Mos Def’s that will kick your fuckin’ ass. I’ve been a rather casual Mos Def fan for many a moon, when I could catch clips of him here & there (I’ve never been a big “rap” fan, at least not of anything much after Queen Latifah’s Black Reign and Public Enemy broke up…), back in the pre-U-Toob days, because he always seemed more of a combination of jazz/performance art/spoken-word/poetry-with-an-attitude than just “rap.” Add to the fact that he’s also one very funny motherfucker, and then he was in “Hitchhiker’s Guide,” and he is, without a doubt, one of the most conscious, creative, coolest dudes on the fucking planet.

It OUGHT to be shoved down Dick Cheney’s cyborg throat and pulled out of Dumbya’s rectum (seeing as how that’s how they’re generally hermetically sealed), and let it kick THEIR motherfuckin’ asses.

Y’all oughta go give the Katrinacrat a look, in addition to the Mos Def post — they’ve got some good dirt on the motherfuckers who are doing their damnedest to keep New Orleans down, dead, and preserved only in certain neighborhoods to court that influx of young white republicunt yuppie-scum, to replace all of those poor, not-white, democratic voters. Here’s some other Gulf Coast/NOLA blogs that I’ve been enjoying a lot lately, even though I’ve been too fucking brain-dead to amend the blogroll as of yet. While the gubmint and the MSM blithely pretend that the “recovery” (Ha!) is “over” and that New Orleans is forgettable, these brilliant hardasses are keeping the torch burning and the life in my city:

Why Now?

Your Right Hand Thief

American Zombie

MOLDY CITY

PrytaniaWaterLine

I’m sure that there are thousands more NOLA blogs out there, and when I find ‘em, I’ll report back to y’all, but in the meantime, this is a good start.

    Annti,

    Look on my side bar under Louisiana bloggers. You will find the link to the list of bloggers. The last I looked, there was 100+ blogs listed. I am still running across some new ones every now and then.

    Mos Def’s performance of Ford Prefect was nothing short of flawless. He must’ve been a fan of the books, because he nailed Ford’s madcap personality without any apparent effort, yet brought his own touches to flesh out the character.

    Having viewed the video, Mos Def is now on my list of people to watch. It’s nice to see a rapper turn away from the prison-culture “gangsta” crap and actually tackle a topic of importance. It takes brass ones to turn down a guaranteed paycheck via stereotype perpetuation in favor of being an actual ARTIST (as opposed to an entertainer).
