more than 20 years of commitment and dedication for giving back to the city.
And who is James Prince you ask? He is the founder of Rap A Lot Records, the rap label that put the South on the hip hop map. Whoo hooo. As for what he has given back, how about these “clean” lyrics from his most famous addition to the hip hop scene, the Geto Boys rapping The Mind of a Lunatic:
Lookin through her window, now my body is warm Shes naked, and Im a peepin tom Her bodys beautiful, so Im thinkin rape Shouldn’t have had her curtains open, so that’s her fate
Trust me when I tell you that as hard as that was to read, the rest of that “song” is so violently graphic you shouldn’t bother Googling it.
And the Mayor of Houston, along with Texas House of Representatives member Sylvester Turner, Houston City Councilman Jarvis Johnson and community activist Debbie Allen. is honoring this piece of cultural trash. Talk about selling your soul to the devil.
BENZION ADDS– Big Jolly, you are being far, far too kind to the elected officials here. Don’t worry, we will have you fully corrupted soon enough.
The lyrics are, indeed, profoundly offensive, but in the interest of The Public’s Right To Know, LST will be providing a link to them, in full.
It would appear that Mr. J. Prince is sort of a black-gangsta-rapping Dan Patrick, using his media empire to provide toys for thousands of kids at Christmas, shelter the homeless, assist the elderly, etc., and we’ll be the first ones to give him credit for that.
I would like to ask this favor, however–Mr. Prince, could you please encourage your customers to be a bit more polite and turn their music down when stopped at a light?
Do something about that and you’ll have my vote for Mayor.
Bigjolly says: While FOX reporter Carey is busy gushing over this piece of human debris passing out toys to the children, Mr. Prince’s website is busy promoting the latest and greatest album from Do or Die, while one of it’s members is awaiting trial on first-degreee murder charges.
On the day of the shooting, Smith was allegedly watching as two people — one of whom was his girlfriend Hamilton’s brother — fought on the street. The victim — Raynard “B-Dog” Pinkston — kept jumping into the fight, and Smith allegedly told him to stay out of it, prosecutors said. When Pinkston didn’t listen, Smith allegedly opened his coat to reveal a weapon, and he warned Pinkston that if he jumped in again, he “would get shot,” prosecutors said.
According to prosecutors, Pinkston challenged Smith to go ahead and shoot, and Smith allegedly did. He then left the area, and the gun was never recovered.
