  • Jay-Z, Eminem Rally Hip-Hop Fans On 'Vote Or Die' Special

    Jay-Z knows why you don't care about voting, and he wants to do something about it.
    Jay and Eminem have joined the rising chorus of hip-hop voices trying to engage young voters as the November 2 election approaches, and their efforts are documented in the new MTV special, "Choose or Lose Presents: Vote or Die!"

    "Most people in the hip-hop generation are from urban areas where no matter who's in office, nothing changes," Jay-Z said. "It doesn't trickle down to where we live — Republican, Democrat, anybody — because we didn't vote. It was a double-edged sword. We didn't vote, so politicians pay attention to numbers, right? So if that area of people isn't voting, we don't effect change, so they don't have to cater to us. They don't have to give us anything, because we don't affect their bottom-line numbers. To be real, it's really a numbers game, it's not a people game. I know that's sad and people are going to say I'm cynical, but it's real. It's really a numbers game."

    Jay hopes to use the power of those numbers to turn politicians on to the issues that affect young voters, even if change is a long time coming. "The people that made it possible for us to do what we do and to be able to flourish in this society, they didn't see change," Jay said. "I may not be able to see it, but my grandkids are going to be able to see it. We have to start doing things that aren't going to change in a month or two. It may not happen in our lifetime, but the wheels that we put in motion right now, our kids and kids' kids receive the benefits of it."

    For Eminem, the reason to hit the polls in November is even more direct: to be heard. "My music is how I express my opinion, but this is the chance for the younger generation [to express itself]," he said. "Many hip-hop peers are getting involved, and it's good to see because hopefully it's going to encourage the young people to get out there and vote on November 2 and rush them polls. If you don't like what's going on in the world and you don't like what you see, get out there. It's your chance to speak and be heard and for you to have a voice, so rush the polls November 2."

    You can hear more from Em, Jay and a host of others when "Choose or Lose Presents: Vote or Die!" premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. The special airs again Monday at 12:30 a.m., Thursday at 8 p.m., and Saturday at 9 a.m.

        Yeah, Mosh is about that shit. Here are some lyrics



        "I started a mosh pit
        Squashed a chick
        Punched a dude and kicked his foster kids
        Jumped out of that shit
        Started to sing ’guilty conscience’
        And watch my fans mosh til the motherfuckers knock each other unconcious
        why these kids getting hurt
        is it me, rapping, and crapping on stage in my white tee shirt
        is it I, who's fucking these kids up till there moms start to cry and throw shit up
        I',m killin, but i gotta sing what im feelin
        Land of the free, Home of the brave
        not me but Bush who sends these kids to their Grave
        military life is emotions of grey
        explosions smoke and rolling over boulders to stay
        alive and they dive in the commotional way
        parents cope with the pain, hope and they pray
        its stupid to say
        but its evident the president cares more about money then the youth of today"

        should be a tight song

                  I like nader better than bush, but voting for him is a huge waste of time and effort.

                  there is no possible way that nader could ever win so why would you waste your time and your vote voting for him.

                  its like there's no way that i could invent a time machine so why would i spend time trying to make one?

                  if im going to waste time doing something that i know is impossible i'd rather waste time trying to build a time machine. i mean it might be impossible but so is nader becoming president. if i'm going to try the impossible i'll try my luck with the time machine. if by some chance i do successfully build it, i'll be able to go back in time and have gore win or somethin. plus i'd be able to do lots of other cool stuff so i'd def go with the time machine.
