Nice Move

“It’s like that and it’s like this

I took her to tha pad and we started to kiss

Now my dick’s on hard, ya know what I’m thinkin’

Took tha panties off and the pussy wasn’t stinkin’

Pulled off my draws and we started to begin

Now tha pussy’s wet, so my dick slides in

Oh, hidy hidy hidy you ho

Ridin’ from the back, so I’m fuckin’ kinda slow”

– Eazy E, American

Eazy E is among the most offensive mainstream American rappers of all time. You could even call him an offensive rap patriarch, as he was one of the originators of the gangster rap movement. I’m fairly confident in saying the above lyrics are from the most offensive Eazy E song, titled Gimme Dat Nut.

Make no qualms about it, Gimme Dat Nut is an extremely offensive song. Rapping lyrics about the exploitation of female genitalia, using women as nothing more than an avenue for sexual climax, and an affinity for the doggy-style position are as head-turning as it gets for the late-80’s, early-90’s rapper.

Alas, this talented American lyricist was taken from us too soon. He met his demise in 1995 after AIDS ate away his organs like an unstoppable rebel force. As a result, we were robbed of more masterful, yet reprehensible song lyrics from the young, rising star, but we can still celebrate his short career because his words may have been reprehensible, but nothing in his song arsenal was deemed internationally disgraceful. As ridiculous as his lyrics were, Eazy E maxed out his offensiveness at the level of aggressive misogyny. The same cannot be said for our country’s latest pop sensation out of South Korea, PSY.

News broke last week revealing that the seemingly gentle-souled, fat-faced phenomenon rapped the following lyrics in 2004. The song was titled Dear Americans.

“Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives

Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture

Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers

Kill them all slowly and painfully”

A partial video has surfaced of Psy performing the song. It now makes sense why it took so long for the song to reach American news outlets: it’s fucking terrible.

Sorry Psy, but there’s something wrong about you saying American soldiers and their families should die slowly and painfully, and then Gangnam-styling your way into the welcoming arms of the American dream.

You lived here, were educated here, our country has welcomed you, our culture has engulfed you, we’ve made your bank account flush, and we brought you fame. And because most of America is so blindingly forgiving, you’ll continue hopping and air lassoing your way to a prosperous American lifestyle. Our Commander in Chief is even attendinging your performances still.

That all makes me sick.

We heard your apology. It even sounded sincere on its surface. We won’t all be soon to forget, though. There are some of us who recognize the American G.I. as the most heroic of all Americans, and they are revered as such. We also see the hollowness of an apology that comes eight years after the fact…and one that you didn’t decide to share until you were outed by our media…and after you have been thrusted into the American pop culture spotlight…and after we lined your pockets with U.S. dollars.

Here is PSY’s apology:

“I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world,” he said in a statement. He said the song “was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two Korean schoolgirls that was part of the overall anti-war sentiment shared by others around the world at that time.”

The girls were struck and killed by a U.S. military vehicle.

PSY continued: “While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one’s self, I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words.

“While it’s important that we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so.”

I would say it’s too late for this apology, but considering the way his popularity has taken off, I’d say he played it just right.

Back before I knew who PSY was, or what the Gangnam Style dance was all about, the YouTube video was submitted to TFM about five times. Each time I would follow the link to the video and watch until I realized it was PSY again, and this was back when it had only one million views or so. I’d watch it, wonder why it was gaining such popularity, trash it and go on to the next. Descriptions of the video from those of you submitting all basically read, “Korean guy in bow tie. TFTC.” I never posted it. I guess I just didn’t get it. So, I’m proud to say that if all of America was as pop culturally inept as I am, PSY would be about as cool as pissing into the wind.

PSY’s Gangnam Style has become the most watched YouTube video of all time, and it’s looking like it will eclipse the billion view mark in the near future. He’s also projected to pull in $8 million this year and enjoys international fame.

Don’t forget, though, he once rapped about his desire to see the slow and painful deaths of American soldiers and their families.

Go away, PSY. You suck. Gangnam Style sucks, too.

    He can take his apology and stick it up his ass. You can’t create lyrics like that and just take it back with a, “my bad.”

    I can look at a Korean and write off anti-American remarks, but what I really can’t stand are Americans (liberals, hipsters, socialists) who make anti-American remarks. Let’s deal with those fuckers first.

      this is actually one of the few instances where i don’t agree. at this point you have to be pretty dense to not see that the iraq adventure was a bad idea and that the reaction to 9/11 could have been undertaken in a much more strategically advantageous and cost-effective manner. as detestable as the particular american people that make those remarks usually happen to be and as much as their heart is almost always in the wrong place, following that trail of introspection is something that the last decade and the prospects for the american future have definitely proved to be worth doing. a fucking south korean that reaps all the benefits of american military expeditionalism while bearing absolutely none of the cost for doing so should shut the fuck up and kiss the feet of the nearest american while he thanks him or her that he isn’t currently starving and memorizing stuff about how kim jong il never took a shit or that kim jong un is the sexiest man alive. making this even worse is that the gangnam district in seoul is very likely home to mostly rich pussies that work to do the least possible to contribute to ROK’s pretty badass military during their national service

      Sorry for Chaying

      I agree with this. Americans have the right to speak their mind regardless of our different opinions, whereas our allies, that got where they are today because of the United States, should be offering their finest women to give me happy endings daily.

    “I’m deeply sorry how these lyrics could be interpreted.” Hmm I wonder how they could be interpreted? When you blatantly say that you want innocent civilians dead I am pretty sure there is no other way to interpret that.

    If it wasn’t for those soldiers, PSY never would have existed as a pop star because he would have starved to death under some commie midget.

    Fuck this guy.
