Bomb The Throne! Jasiri X goes in on George W. Bush and his dad over "Otis" track


One of the most important rappers on the scene, spitting rhymes of substance, is Jasiri X. As my readers know, he has appeared on my blog more than any other music artist. Why? Since he emerged in the public, during the Jena Six movement in 2007, he has consistently delivered thought-provoking songs shedding light on the critical issues of the day. Whether its U.S. wars, police brutality, poverty, worker rights or foolery in Hip-Hop, his YouTube channel is one we should pay closer attention to.

In his latest joint, he takes the popular "Otis" instrumental from Jay-Z and Kanye's album "Watch The Throne" and flips it to go in on the less than stellar records of George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush during their tenures as President of the United States. Jasiri X says "This is to remind us how America got so messed up." Watch below or click http://youtu.be/nr2YMncb6JE

P.S.: According to some reports, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush spent more time on "vacation" during their first year than President Obama did.
