FEMA raps about shit, doesn’t follow through

Okay, discount so FEMA is basically a giant fuckup. I was on the internets today and I saw this shit. Don’t worry, more about there is some actual hip-hop in here today. Sort of.

For those of you too lazy to check the site, here’s the basic rundown:

As New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin pleaded on national television for firefighters – his own are exhausted after working around the clock for a week – a battalion of highly trained men and women sat idle Sunday in a muggy Sheraton Hotel conference room in Atlanta. Many of the firefighters, assembled from Utah and throughout the United States by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, thought they were going to be deployed as emergency workers.

Instead, they have learned they are going to be community-relations officers for FEMA, shuffled throughout the Gulf Coast region to disseminate fliers and a phone number: 1-800-621-FEMA.

So, yeah. We’ve got a bunch of firefighters that are ready for action, but instead we’re holding a fucking tea party and training them on how to hand out fliers. Shit is so fucked nowadays that it’s surreal.

MIXTAPE SHOW EPISODE 12 – young hootie interview

Man, check what the fuck it do? You already know what time it is, or maybe you don’t.

So yeah, it’s episode #12 of the most infamous hip-hop mixtape podcast on ye olde intarwebbe. And yes, normally shows come through on Fridays, but you all should have learned to expect the motherfucking unexpected round here by now. Basically things are getting kinda busy for your boy at the moment, so in case things get too hectic for me to put shit out on schedule, I’m just gonna put shit up early.

So, let’s see. We’ve had a dude from N.Y., a dude from Chicago, someone from D.C...there would be something wrong if I didn’t go right next door and hit up Compton for some sound.

Kanye: “George Bush doesn’t care about Black people”

Oh, cheap shit. First, online let me make a joke, pilule because I don’t think I can do that after I make the rest of this post.

Kanye did it.

Okay, now that that’s out of the way, let’s go.

So I was on fucking metafilter today, and saw this link. I was actually working on the latest edition of this site’s hip-hop podcast at the time, so I didn’t really pay attention to it, because the video was kind of sloppy.

Basically, it’s a taping of Mike Myers and Kanye West on NBC. At first, I was a little disappointed in the fact that they needed celebrities to get on there to convince people that this is serious business. Then I laughed a little at how they had Kanye and Myers there – I mean, they’re both really funny to me, but the latter is the only one that I think is trying to be funny on purpose.
