I'm a Educated Fool, With Money On My Mind

This morning a radio show I sometimes listen to was doing a segment on "Gangsta Rap" and it's effects on youth (namely it's effects on youth in the violence-bedeviled sections of Boston).

The "Gangsta Rap" song they played in the background of this segment?

Ice-T?
NWA?
Dre?

Ah no. Coolio. "Gangsta's Paradise" to be specific.

I wonder if they actually think this is what Gangsta Rap is, or if they just figure if it has the word Gangsta in it that's good enough.

Aaaaaand now it will be in my head for the rest of the day.

Hopefully yours, too.

Hah - if they only knew what REAL Gangsta Rap sounded like...they'd freak!

And I highly doubt Michele Pfiefer is teaching in Mattapan.

I like Weird Al's "Amish Paradise" much more. Oh, and "Fantastic Voyage." If you're gonna do Coolio, THAT'S the song to do.
