    i was just thinking about what zesto was sayin about how its funny the diamond is the marriage stone because of how it represents slavery and genocide and whatnot, and i was thinkin its funny how all these rappers are talkin about africa and their roots and everything and then they go cop two 15k diamond necklesses, a 10 k bracelet, and 5 other pieces of jewelry covered in diamonds while the diamond industry is still raping africa and pretty much driving slaves and shit. how many people are there in the United States? 300 mil? out of that i bet theres about 10 million decent citizens, out of which there are probably like 5 million who really do what they believe is right most of the time. the rest are greedy, ignorant, arrogant, hypocrites in one way or another.

    take away masterP's money and what do you have left?
    A guy who cant play ball well enought to go pro, and a chump who cant rap.

    take away Jeru's money... you're left with the same guy.
    And he would survive in affrica. MaterP would need his tanks for protection.

    I'm glad you got my point jah.
    It's such a paradox to see rappers claiming that they've bought
    their independence. They are so rich and free that they can wear
    diamonds. But they're really only wearing the symbols of the oppression
    of their own people. such trickery!

    fuck them all, they are basically robbing their own people and telling them go kill and steal each other, go fuck as many bitches as you can, and oh yeah fuck the white devil for holding us down.

    its like don't claim "thuglife" and then complain when you don't get a job.

    i dont know what your talking about,none of these new "rappers " talk about africa or their roots , i can only think of mos def who does so....
    and so what if they stop buying diamonds , then what,,thousands if not millions of guys buy diamonds for there woman every day. "rappers" arent solely the reason why diamonds are in high demand
