Find more videos like this on USDA2DAY Everyone’s familiar with Young Jeezy’s “My President is Black” record and the inauguration remix cameoed by Jay-Z. You may also be aware of the smoldering debate instigated by Fox News conservative mouthpiece Bill O’Rielly over the “behavior” and lyrics of the rap duo in the song and specifically at the concert on the eve of the inauguration.
“I want to thank two people,” Jeezy said at the concert. “I want to thank the motherf*cker overseas that threw two shoes at George Bush. And I want to thank….and I want to thank the motherf*cker who helped him move his sh*t out the white house. Keep it moving bitch because my president is motherf*cking black n*gga.”
Jay-Z Later chimes in with an impromptu acapella freestyle
“You can keep your p*ssy/ I don’t want no more Bush. No more War/ No more Iraq/ No more white lies/ My President is Black!”
Being the opportunistic bitter Republican Bill O’Rielly is he’s decided to launch a political campaign against the rappers in effort to appeal to logical fallacy to indirectly disparage the integrity of Barack Obama.
“Jay-Z should know better. I don’t know much about Young Jeezy. I guess they didn’t get the memo about bringing the country together. I don’t think Barack Obama would approve that. I think its low class. Jay-Z, I’ve met him a few times. He seems to be a sane individual…that was aweful.”

While I do agree that Jay and Jeezy are in appropriate in their portrayals SO F*CKING WHAT! They’re artist. Just like painters, sculptors and other white musicians. Lets not make this a case where President Obama is guilty by association…an association of being BLACK! Let’s set the record straight. Black America and specifically artist don’t now have to be on their best behavior because we have a black president. AMERICA has to be on its best behavior because we have a CAPABLE PRESIDENT.
Now O’Rielly wants Jeezy to be a guest on his show. That’s all about ratings. He thinks his experience in the political genre will afford him the opportunity to intellectually terrorize and embarrass Jeezy on TV. Good for Jeezy for refusing. Always fight your battles on your home turf. What if Jeezy invited O’Rielly to a freestyle battle on the topic who would win? Come on its an unfair fight. Lets not be stupid.
On the other hand I have to send a thumbs up to corny ass Dennis Miller who said “I’m sorry Jay-Z and Young Emphysema could not join me in that happiness.“ While his little slight at Jeezy’s not funny he is however right. He doesn’t have to care what they think and I do feel bad that Jay and Jeez don’t feel like I do but that’s why America’s great…they don’t have to.
O’Rielly’s rant is misplaced bitterness over his disappointment that President Obama now occupies the White House. He’s appealing to the audience and the media’s ignorance by trying to somehow, however subliminally it may be, attempt to draw a correlation between the actions of rappers who support the President and his Obama’s integrity.
Regardless of Jay-Z’s equity in the public eye, he is not obligated to uphold any type of political standard. REMEMBER…I don’t agree with the song nor the ad lib comments however I’m upset that O’Rielly’s trying to convince you that AS AN ARTIST Jay has no right to make them.
Hey Bill…there’s this thing called the 1st Amendment. You should read it. Like you its pretty old but its important and you’re definately NOT!
