Hip Hop Mayor Sing-A-Long

There’s been alot of discussion going on surrounding the forthcoming trial of Kwame Kilpatrick. Kym Worthy was interviewed recently; she was to the point (see the first link in the player on right side of the linked page). We like Kym. And, there’s also alot of hubris; like the interview with Kilpatrick’s general counsel McPhail posted yesterday. The funniest part of the interview is after all the legalese of “why the prosecution is in the wrong”, the interviewer point blank asked McPhail, “ok, so you’re saying those aren’t his text messages?” Right.

Hip Hop Mayor Sing-A-Long

So in honor of April Fool’s day, a collaberative effort by some of our friends and contributors, a Hip Hop Mayor Sing-A-Long. This was done during a virtual lunch chat, the sound quality isn’t the best and it’s not fancy flash but hey, how much time can you spend on a fool, on April Fool’s day. You will need either: Powerpoint, or the viewer which you can download here for free and it takes about 1 minute. 

PS: You may need to turn your volume up a bit after the first slide; this was created virtually not in a recording studio eh?  The slides transition automatically, all you need to do is CLICK THE SPEAKER on the Powerpoint and it plays automatically. Feel free to join in with the sing-a-long. 🙂 Enjoy!

(Note: anyone with graphic and audio skill is welcome to use the lyrics mashup and come up with their own fun version. Let us know if you do and we would love to post it. Youtube pro’s could do alot with the graphics…. 🙂 Please just remember to credit the contributors if you use this as a derivative work. Thank you! ) 


Reality: Now He’s MalcolmX?

Folks a bit miffed at DetNews.com for unfairly implicating Kwame Kilpatrick has more supporters than he actually does. The original headline posted around 10PM first read “1,000’s Attend Rally” to support Kwame, when people know full well, that is not the case; nor can the building of the Black Madonna Church hold that amount of people to begin with. The headline is now changed.

But more annoying, was the absence of clarifying that: This was NOT an “open to the public event”, rather, an event choreographed and sponsored by Kwame and team for support, not the least of which included the welcoming of donations. Commentators of this article remarked “please DON’T put a private invite only event on TV” as if it were freely open to all of the public. Which it was not. Much of the media was not invited in either. Other than those that could assure a positive review in favor of Kwame’s “victimization” by the rest of society; which includes everyone in the country except the few hundred (NOT THOUSANDS as spun by the press), who want to believe the man is exempt from the law. But even more insulting, (yes really it is), Kwame goes so far as to compare himself to Malcolm X (what?) apparently to affix the notion he is a victim of the bad people of the State of Michigan, and not: his own calculated wrongdoings.

Comments here: No one believes Kwame’s hype…
