Hip Hop: Stupidity is the real enemy

I like this

(VIDEO BELOW) In a recent song created by rapper Saigon and producer DJ Premiere called, Let’s Get Smart, Saigon says…

Nah Preem, I ain’t come around to dumb It down.
I done started a revolution, I ain’t running now.
‘Cause I don’t rap about having fun, I’m underground?
‘Cause the industry couldn’t get me to become a clown?
Mel said don’t push him ‘cause he’s close to the edge.
The one to fail shit, most of them dead.
It’s ironic, to have some bread they put some toast to your head.
You just wanted to go to bed, you on a wanted poster instead.
Trying to be something you’re not got you fronting a lot.
Stop using hip-hop to corrupt the block.
This nigga preaching the life that he doesn’t live.
That ain’t the fact of the matter, look what it does to the kids;
Make them want to grow up to be drug dealers,
Leading them down a dead end, you’s a fuck nigga.
If I can bring Pac back and send y’all to wherever he’s at,
Guess what, black people, we back!

Yes, this is Saigon, this is Mart
They done dumbed it down, now let’s get smart
They done dumbed it down, now let’s get smart
Let’s get smart, let’s get smart
It’s bigger than business, this is art
We done dumbed it down, now let’s get smart
We done dumbed it down, now let’s get smart
Let’s get smart “plus I’m very smart”

Whoever own Worldstar’s a motherfucking genius,
‘Cause he ain’t paying for that content.
Niggas grab cameras and record all this nonsense,
Sending it to them and they get rich from advertisements and sponsors.
All you get is a fucked up conscience,
Of being a part of depicting your people as some kind of monsters.
I’m from the tutelage of them Clark Kents;
Niggas that’s living this hip-hop since it was still on the park bench
That’s why my bars strong as cigar stench
Deadly like Agent Orange, or AIDS, arsenic
Can’t defend myself ‘cause I’m always on offense
The two don’t give you a clue, the nine will give y’all hints
This Saigon and Premier up in here (yeah, yeah)
And we’re giving them think rap this year (yeah, yeah)
Selling it to them shrink rap this here
Hottest shit in the streets, this is heat right here

Saigon, Let’s Get Smart (lyrics – rapgenius.com)
