What Does Biggie have to do with Thursday's (at 9pm eastern) Afronerd Radio broadcast? See Below!
I readily confess that Biggie Small's opening monologue for the above song, "Juicy" always bothered me. More specifically, this part of the soliloquy:
“to all the people that lived above the
buildings that I was hustlin’ in front of that called the police on me when I was just tryin’ to make some money to feed my daughters”
Why exactly do the "people that called the police" have to suffer because the protagonist in this song desires to conduct an illegal and dangerous business in front of their children? Well we are going to do a part two of last week's Afronerd Radio Week in Review broadcast discussing the ghetto name/Black crime pathology issue that has so many folks incensed stemming from my comments on last week's NPR show. We will also discuss Senator Obama's continued success in the primaries (and what that means for the Clinton and McCain campaigns) as well as a friendly fire case resulting in the death of a young Westchester (NY) police officer.
Check us out this Thursday, call in and share your thoughts (you can agree or disagree) at 646-915-9620 or IM/email us at-afronerdradio@yahoo. Remember the show starts at 9pm (eastern) sharp! And the debate continues below at the Post Bourgie blog:
