No Defense Against Common Sense

Whenever you can’t defeat your enemy legitimately, never underestimate the power of good old fashioned dishonesty.  The Obama administration has become bullet proof in the court of the public opinion in the wake of Osama Bin Laden’s death.  Scrambling in great haste to find anything they can use to vindicate the ruins of their party before the onset of the 2012 elections, they have resorted to character assassination.  Unfortunately, this time they have a targeted someone wholly underserving of their manufactured vitriol.  

Music Video: Skyzoo - The Definitive Prayer

Though I’ve never really bought into the importance of freestyling as a necessary skill for a rapper (I see much more value in a rappers ability to write a song), I can’t deny the visceral thrill of watching a wordsmith spitting rapid fire over a beat.  While Skyzoo’s “The Definitive Prayer” may not be technically be a freestyle, it does capture that same sense of cathartic release.  It’s off his upcoming mixtape with 9th Wonder entitled The Great Debator.
