Have you guys heard Immortal Technique "Bin Laden"?
SOLID. Good music and good truth.

LOL at "good truth." I don't look to poetry for realism, so I'm not going to comment on that. (Although: a shout-out to Lee Malvo, who murdered 16 complete strangers? That's what I love about free speech, it allows you to see people for the ignorant asses that they are.)

Musically, Immortal Technique's rhymes and flow don't do much for me, just too clunky. Compare to the sample from Eminem at the end, which is tasty as hell:

I don't rap for dead presidents
I'd rather see the president dead
It's never been said but I set precedents

Erik, I hear you.

Immortal Technique's rhyme is catchy, but not the best stylistically (kinda suprising considering the name tho).

Eminem line at the end is slick, but not really in-line w/the music.

I think the best part of that video is actually the stills shown, not the lyrics.

Although "Bush knocked down the towers" is pretty right-on.

Have you looked up Marvin Bush?
