[Ronald Reagan:]
“And they say if we’ll only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he’ll forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers. They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer—not an easy answer—but simple”

[Verse 1]
I got that black on black skin tone
Actual-fact syndrome
That’s why I dropped the cruel on every verse you heard me sh*t on
Okay, it’s a Slumdog Opera
The tale of a king whose name wasn’t on the roster
My road to glory was Road To Perdition
And Act II: The Turn is just the memoirs with no omissions
We came a mighty long way from standing near the stove in the cold
The greatest story ever told
The realest n*ggas see the pain in my story boards
The true believers say [Walaki] I support the boy
My life feel like a highlight reel, this is lightning striking
Feel how the Zeitgeist feel
Get a slight chill

After word of Erykah Badu‘s third pregnancy hit the web, a torrent of negative comments was posted about her in Okay Player’s forum.  Her fans, who hold her to an “unreal” moral standard took her to task for what will be her third child out of wedlock, this time for her protege and current mate Jay Electronica.  Well, Erykah, who’s never short on words responded by opening a tirade of her own in the forum.  I peeped this first over at Necole Bitchie, check it out:

“My Jay Electronica Theory”-Editorial

If what they say is true and all press is good press, then Jay Electronica is off to a beautiful start this week. With a lackluster performance he was able to achieve what he wouldn’t have received had he tore the venue down. If you haven’t heard by now the much anticipated performance by one of the “perceived” Saviors of Hip Hop, the N.O.’s own Jay Electronica, fizzled out in front of a crowd of hundreds at the Nokia Theater, opening up for Mos Def.

Some chalk it up to the beginner’s curse (some of the greats sucked their first time out) while others are saying the rookie MC bit off more than he can chew. A venue the size of the Nokia in the middle of Times Square was no place for an MC to begin his Campaign, maybe his inauguration but not the launch of his career. He was held down by two titans; Just Blaze on the wheels and Erykah Badu on vocals for his single, I was there and I happen to disagree.

It could’ve been pulled off but the lil homey fell short due to what, I don’t know. I was gonna refrain from blogging about the concert until i spoke to Supa Nova (the hype man with the much discussed oversize jewels) or secured a response from Jay himself but I seen them slaughtering him on the boards and I realized dude achieved through mediocrity what some artist aren’t able to secure with budgets- publicity (free nonetheless) notoriety (everyone knows his name now) anticipation (he WILL pull a decent crowd know that he’s been crucified,
