“Can’t” Knock The Hustle! – (Ignorant Blogs VS Jasiri X)

The real steroid abusing snitch Jose Canseco got embarrassed by being knocked out in the first round. Black Canseco knocked himself out with this lame attempt at journalism: http://www.hustleknockin.com/hustleknockin/2009/10/dear-debra-lee-open-letter-to-bet-song.html

What is going on nowadays with black blog spots who claim to be for a positive change in our community, but given an opportunity to support an artist who is the epitome of everything that they claim to promote, they choose to try to disrespect the effort while ignoring the obvious fact that Jasiri X is bringing positive change to the coon inspired, drug dealing, buffoonery that is being broad-casted as entertainment by today’s music industry.

First http://www.Bossip.com embarrassed themselves by totally missing the point Jasiri X’s song and video “Dear Debra” almost started a revolution on their website by posting Jasiri X’s video with the caption: Random Ridiculousness: “Dear Debra Lee” Video http://bossip.com/173449/random-ridiculousness-dear-debra-lee-video

Their arrogance and lack of research backfired with a fierce backlash from readers who pounded the site with support for Jasiri X – https://hiphopandpolitics.wordpress.com/2009/11/02/random-ridiculousness-bossip-urban-gossip-site-tries-to-clown-jasiri-x-video-get-backlash-from-their-readers/

That same day hustleknockin.com knocks Jasiri X for daring to Knock BET’s Hustle:

The only downside of this joint is that it comes from Jasiri X, an artist that almost no one outside the eastcoast underground’s ever heard of and probably never will“. Black Canseco

Really? I guess that we should immediately go back in time and delete history:

Jasiri X and President Barack Obama

Jasiri X and Russel Simmons

Jasiri X and Public Enemy #1 Chuck D

Had Mr. “Black Canseco” troubled himself to “Google” “Jasiri X” he would have found more than enough information for him to at least not play himself by exposing his lack of journalistic credibility.

This single post would have been enough to save his reputation as a credible blogger, instead it now makes his lame attempt to de-fame Jasiri X null and void and if he has a shred of integrity should send him into some serious soul searching:

Hip-hop Pioneers and taste-makers comments about Jasiri X’s new song/video Dear Debra


Professional journalists and writers do research before they write ridiculous, opinion based, void of fact articles. That’s what gives them “credibility”, but I guess since hustleknockin.com is just a self published “blog” and not a respected source of legitimate news, “you get what you get“.

What bugs me out about these lapses of journalistic judgment, is that these are the same people who rant and rave against the very same music industry and artists that Jasiri X’s lyrics are attempting to balance out, but somehow they don’t value artists who are not enslaved/ bought and sold by the same system that they claim to fight against.

If you want Debra Lee or anyone part of the hiphop music media establishment to hear this, you’ve gotta be either part of the establishment“.

The success of this song/video has nothing to do with someone from BET hearing it, BET is a corporation owned and operated by Viacom. One song no matter how great will not change them. However it is part of a on going movement of music by a larger group of artists who offer consumers an alternative to the offerings of the artists that you named.

“This would be a much more powerful message if it came from Rawse, The Roots, or Lil Wayne or Gucci Mane“.

Would the book “Knock the Hustle” be a more powerful message if it was written by Jeff Chang, Kevin Powell or Davey D?

As if the only way people should respect good music and new artists should be if they have the “stamp of approval” from the very same people who sponsor the “death-style” that has been rammed down our throats as Hip-hop for decades.

Sorry Mr. Canseco, I come from a time before A&R’s and labels dictated what Hip-hop was, if that is the only downside that you see in Jasiri X, I can live with that because that leaves plenty of upside!

Please hate on our new video “Beware Young Girl


It explores the disturbing trend of horrific violence and injustice towards women. You wont see your industry boys make one like this either:

More people who according to Black Canseco will probably never hear of Jasiri X:

And More:

Jasiri X and The Legendary Carlos Santana

Jasiri X and The father of Hip-hop Africa Bambataa

Goldman Sachss is at it again-First it was 23 billion dollars in bonuses, now it’s Swine Flu Vaccine


It seems like the arrogance simply doesn’t stop. First it was 23 billion dollar bonuses and now its the H1N1 vaccine for the  scummy people over at Goldman Sachs’. While many ‘at risk’ people have stood in long lines or anxiously parked on waiting lists to get the vaccine, the billion dollar boys used their money and connections to get their flu shots. It didn’t matter if folks were or were not ask risk, GS along with several other banks went and ordered the medicine directly from the manufacturer.

At the same time this is happening millions of credit card holders all over the country have received letters in the past couple of weeks from these rich bankers informing us that interest rates for the cards are gonna jump up big time. Some folks are looking at interest rates of 24-25%… So shiesty was this move from some of these banks that Congress is pushing to enact the new credit card consumer protection law which was scheduled to go into effect in 2010, they want to put it in place right now. The banks are furious and are pulling out all the stops to lobby congress. We’ll see how sympathetic they are or how easily they can be brought off in the wake of this latest rich people get Swine Flu vaccine scandal.

Goldman Sachs Received H1N1 Vaccine Before Several Hospitals (GS)

lloyd_blankfein-goldman sachs

Gokdman Sach's CEO LLOyd Blankfein made sure his ilk got the H1N1 vaccine before those at risk.

We’ve been trying to figure out what, if any, preparations Wall Street has been taking to guard against H1N1.

 For the most part, the banks have been coy about their activities.

But as noted on The Today Show this morning, several banks have been among the early recipients of H1N1 vaccine, allowing them to get ahead of hospitals in some instances.

The story was originally broken by BusinessWeek this week.

Goldman Sachs (GS) has received 200 doses in total — the exact same as Lennox Hill hospital.

Health officials say corporate partners are always part of the distribution of any vaccine.

There’s no allegation that they broke any rules, and we’re still not quite sure what the whole story is — mainly it looks like another PR snafu for Wall Street. Some are suggesting that, perhaps, the banks should have donated their allocated vaccines.

In defense of the banks, we all benefit when others are vaccinated. It’s a positive, not zero-sum game.
