Something anti-jihadist from Stuck Mojo

I don’t give a damn what god you claim,
I've seen the innocent that you’ve slain,
On my streets you’re just fair game...

As a rebuttal-in-kind to Mos Def and Immortal Technique’s left-radical agitprop video, I bring you “Open Season” from the Southern rap-metal band Stuck Mojo.

It’s wild to see rapper Lord Nelson flowing like Chuck D but with a pro-U.S.A., pro-military message.

This video has generated close to 3,000 comments on YouTube since last December. Comments along the lines of “Chicken shit MTV, demean women all day long but can’t show this video”... and “USA!!!! HELL YEAH!!

Wow. Just wow. I say this for two reasons.

One: you're right - this cat does have that authoratative Chuck D flow.

Two: This dude fails to realize (or maybe her does, but knows that it isn't much of an attention grabber as blind patriotism) that the religion is being used as a tool to manipulate the always. If he wouldve addressed the corrupt religious heads, this song would'vebeen ace. said...

I also forgot to mention, that he seems to be unable to separate a Mulsim terrorist from your average Muslim person.

^ Jay, welcome to my spot, and thanks for commenting.

Yeah, Stuck Mojo's trying to have it both ways, because they make the distinction in a text note on YouTube... but in the song lyrics (probably, as you say, for attention-grabbing purposes) it seems to slam Islam per se, with carefully chosen insults ("... like a pig to the slaughter...")

Nice to hear this kind of sentiment in a music genre outside of "country" music. But while this song ain't too bad, I don't think much of Lord Nelson as a rapper, nor do I care for the band, musically.

I do think rap-metal can work, Bionic Jive's Armageddon Through Your Speakers, being my favorite, so far.

Still, a rapper proclaiming his love of the USA. That's worth some attention.

^ Indeed, Edshugeo. Lord Nelson's line "My forefathers fought and died for this here" has been the keystone sentiment of black patriotism for a long time.
