Bill O’Reilly: Phat

Richard’s Johnson reports in the NY Post that rap chronicler Davy D has factored O’Reilly and declared him “hip-hop’s dopest MC for 2002.” Though I personally doubt O’Reilly has an ounce of rhythm in him, his scorched earth broadsides have earned respect from at least one corner of the hip-hop community.

Here he excoriates Jay-Z:

    In the Children at Risk segment tonight, once again, an amazing display of inappropriate behavior by some public schools in the USA. The rapper Jay-Z selling millions of records with corrosive lyrics that demean just about everybody, same old story.

    A couple of examples, if you aren’t a big fan of his: “It’s big pimpin’ baby, you know, I thug ‘em, f-‘em, love ‘em, leave ‘em, ’cause I don’t f’n need ‘em.”

    All right. Another example: “Keep it moving face off with the .38 scraped off. Keep shorty maced can’t throw a 4-4 eight ball know your place.”

    Those are gun slang. Sex, violence, the usual from Jay-Z.

    In addition, the man was convicted of stabbing a record producer in 1999 and is a self-admitted crack dealer.

    Now here’s the outrage. On a recent promotional tour, the rapper was made an honorary principal at 12 high schools across the country.

Johnson quotes Davy:

    “He’s been stepping up to the mic all year long and blasting cats left and right,” Davey D writes. “My question is ‘Who’s next?’ You can’t deny his skills . . . He hasn’t lost a battle yet.”

But preaching and pontificating aren’t the same thing as rapping. Seen?

    Anybody who reads Davey D’s sight would now he only would have made those remarks in jest or sarcasm. I think Davey D is critiquing O’Reilly’s attack on rappers without actually having any emceeing skills himself.

    Here’s his site.

    He goes after O’Reilly quite often including in Bill O’Reilly is a Pompous, Hypocritical Idiot and has a transcript up of O’Reilly going after Jay-Z. Just search for O’Reilly for more.

    O’Reilly is right his attacks aren’t really against Jay-Z’s right to publish music he feels represents him as an artist. Rather O’Reilly’s beef is with public schools honoring his behavour. Thats not to say Jay-Z has no place in school, but he has to be brought up in the proper context. A course about pop culture for example might consider examining his impact on society, that is in stark contrast to honoring the man which is what the schools choice to do.
