Rap Star Busta Rhymes quote on Y2K

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

"Being that we all live under the same law and order, the same Constitutional right, whether the white man might have different options and benefits from a black man, we still all exist in a similar time-frame where we all do similar trivial, day-to-day bullsh*t. I still feel like we can identify with a lot of this sh*t despite we may not physically go through it hands-on. I deal with issues from partying, to fighting, to peace, to war, to getting money, to capitalizing. Nobody knows what the future has to promise a motherf*****r. So you've got to stay tuned and be aware of the worst-case scenario because it's better to be safe than sorry. God forbid the Y2K problem really goes down and everything stops completely. You ain't got your own food supply, your own lands and f**king power-generators and things of that nature to live on ... when that sh*t shuts down. Things that exist as ideas can be potential realities, and I just feel like as crazy as some of these things that we hear about sound, they can exist in some way, shape, fashion or form. And we just need to be aware of the possible realities and do what we can and just be able to withstand the worst-case scenarios."

Busta Rhymes

Well Busta, I couldn't have said it better myself.

Sometimes ya just get the feeling that maybe, just maybe, a y2k 10 scale is just what's needed.

Yo Yo Yo Z, what the dilio? Ya bustin some dis on my bro Busta?

Hmmm, looks like this post got mixed reviews. But that's OK with me. I'm a 50 year old white bread who doesn't particularly like Rap, but thinks that Busta Rhymes' "Gimme Some More" is a pretty good statement about excesses in our society.

Yo Yo, check it out, check it out...Gimme some more.

Actually, Prince is planning to release SEVEN different remixes of "1999" this month.
