If Minnesota politicians were gangsta rappers
We're stoked for Dre Day this Thursday, and its celebration of all things gangsta. But since we've always got local politics on the brain, our thoughts turned towards a strange mixture of the two topics. So here we answer the question: what if local politicians were gangsta rappers?
Infamity: Critics complain that Rex's lyrics don't make any goddamned sense, containing a confused mixture of hatred, homophobia, and Revelations-based doomsday imagery written in rhymes a fourth-grader would be ashamed of. Her fans maintain she's just keepin' it real.
Sample lyric: "All you fag-haggin', man-naggin' chumps got me braggin'/'Bout all the cash that my fake farm be rakin'/I'm coo-coo for Christ/Boast more warlust than Reagan/Got blood on my hands and I ain't even raggin'/Health care reform?/Jea, watch these paws draggin'/I'm the craziest Fox, docs/Fuck Jamie and Megan/When my ragtag shows up/For forgiveness you'll be beggin'/My words will be heeded/Despite the satellite feed laggin'/"Now open up wide," I'll say/"I don't want you gaggin'/Brace yourself, bitches, for a primetime tea-baggin'!"
Infamity: Mid-career he switched from the DFL record label to the rival distributor GOP, which made for bad blood all over town. He's probably most notorious, though, for his six month beef with Al "Dr. Frankenstein" Franken in which he attempted to maintain his top spot in the local rap scene.
Sample lyric: Hip hop, I'm a flip-flopper, with a stone-cold wife/Livin' the California life/Damn, it seems I had it all/But Franken made me take the fall/Thought I ruled it in the 'hood/But M.N. Courts said I'm no good/After months of legal hell/I lost it all to the dude from SNL
