[PICTURED: U.S.A.’s Top 2 Rap Icons: (l) CA’s @ZumaDogg and (r) NY’s @MrChuckD. (Also: U.S.A.’s Top 2 Political Icons)]
First of all, I’m jealous…cause everyone knows, I legitimately consider myself to be one of the top rappers, of all time. BUT, I have to admit…even Zuma Dogg likes Chuck D of Public Enemy (@MrChuckD), better than Zuma Dogg likes himself. That’s a SHORT, SHORT fucking list!. (But I’m still good!!! Not like they say!) All I’m gonna say, is I was working at a Top 40 radio station, in the 80’s. Record promoters would funnel records to the station, most of which never get airplay. So, ZD, who was working at the station, as an intern, at the time, was allowed to go through the garbage can, for the records they were throwing out. They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, but I took ONE LOOK at the front cover of Public Enemy’s first LP, and I KNEW it was the right look and feel. AND, indeed…it WAS the best rap LP, ever made!!! AND, they made others. I always put Run-DMC as #1 on the “Best Rap Act of All Time,” as The Beatles get a lot of mentions, for being first and breakthrough. BUT, you GOTTA include Public Enemy as #2, as you would Led Zeppelin…AND, I’ve said, for a long time, and haven’t made an update, yet: Chuck D…IS the voice of rap to be put in a time capsule for the future. HERE THE DRUMMER GET WI-CKET!:
ZD GETS TWEET FROM CHUCK D:
Check out @MrChuckD on Twitter to read about HIS beef with City of Los Angeles (who tried to “Shut “Em Down” with the threat of “Shutting ‘Em Down) & LAWeekly (kicked a sleeping Mr D.)
It all caught my attention, when my twitter timeline BLEW UP with RTs of Chuck’s comment on Dennis J. BEWARE @MrChuckD, politicians. YOU DO NOT GET AS MANY RE-TWEETS AS HE DOES, IN YOUR, OR MY, MOST ASPIRATIONAL DREAMS!
@ZumaDogg: @NewtGingrich AND @MrChuckD send him tweets. @BarackObama AND @BeastieBoys follow! DIVERSITY, Y’ALL!!! HEAR THE DRUMMER GET WI-CKED!
Flava Flaaaaaaaaaaaav!!! You’re PERFECT!
UPDATE: Thanks @MrChuckD for following @ZumaDogg on twitter. (Always wanted to say that!)
