Wille D of the Geto Boys on Don Imus

Recommended Posts

By Willie D

Being a member of one of the most flammable groups of all times, quite naturally like Don Imus, I embrace and cherish my first amendment right to freedom of expression, which includes freedom of speech. In 1990, my group the Geto Boys became the first group in music history to be denied distribution by its distributor because of content. Geffen Records refused to distribute the album entitled “Geto Boys” because of constant profanity, violence, and what they deemed misogynistic lyrics. We immediately believed that because we are a black group we were unfairly singled out by Geffen who continued to distribute controversial white rock groups including Slayer and Guns ‘n’ Roses whose song One In A Million drew criticism because of its references to ethic minorities and homosexuals. In hindsight I realize that the truth of the matter is Geffen, like CBS and MSNBC was under tremendous pressure from activist groups to distance themselves from the talent. These groups and their constituents wield a considerable amount of buying power and influence. Had those groups who protested against Guns ’n’ Roses been more aggressive and went after Geffen for backing Guns ‘n’ Roses, as they were when they came after the Geto Boys, Geffen would have refused to distribute them also.

The 15 million or so dollars a year that Imus made for each company is not even a drop in the bucket compared to the wells of money blacks and women consumers spend annually with the advertisers of Imus’ former radio and television shows. Who’s going to risk losing his or her livelihood to save someone else’s? I know I’m not. Come on man, this dude called the Rutgers University Women’s Basketball Team, which predominately consist of black players “nappy headed hoes” and you expect him to skate? Had he not used the words nappy headed he might have been safe. It is common knowledge that dark people of African descent have coarse hair, which some people in American society derogatorily refer to as nappy. Because Imus is white, that is what made his comments racist. Because he is a male, that is what made it sexist. And because of this country’s legacy of racial injustices and the racial divide that permeates our society today, it’s going to be hard for anyone of distinction to withstand the aftermath of publicly making a racial slur. Yes he did get away with it for 30 years but then again America got away with slavery for over 284 years. Does that make it right?

 

Although I applaud the folks over at CBS and MSNBC for stepping up to the plate and doing the just thing by firing Don Imus, I’m sure that after they did due diligence, the financial obligations of their shareholders considerably out-weighted any moral obligations to the public. With that said, I’m not surprised that Imus was fired. What is interesting to me is how everyone with a tongue to flap or fingers to type, consistently compares what this fool said to “what rappers say everyday.” To me that statement is equivalent to beating a dead horse… what’s the use. First of all, generally when rappers use a derogatory word or statement we are referring to a person’s character not a specific ethnic group. Furthermore, why are y’all always trying to use rappers as convenience scapegoats for whatever the current hot button issue in America is? Can y’all at least alternate from time to time between Hollywood and the Porn Industry, which I know some of you can’t get enough of. Say what you say about double standards but that’s the society we live in. Blacks can call one another the “N” word and get away with it, whites can’t. Likewise, whites can call one another the “H” word or the “C” word and get away with it, blacks can’t. If a man and a woman go out to eat at a restaurant, is it fair for the man to be expected to pick up the check? A growing number of men don’t think so. I’m not one of those men and society collectively seems to back me up on this one. Although, I did release a song entitled “I’m not a Gentleman,” I am very much one when it comes to that special someone.

 

Funny how so many people are saying Imus should have been allowed to apologize and keep his job. Well, as with any other job the content of your character is a reflection of the company that you represent and from time to time your character will be evaluated. If management doesn’t agree with your character, they may elect to give you a warning or suspension. How sports teams deal with professional ball players is a prime example of these tactics. Nobody raised hell when Dennis Rodman or Ron Artest was fired from their respective teams for inappropriate conduct. If your cantankerous character becomes a liability to the point where your employer starts losing money and it affects your fellow colleagues ability to effectively perform their job duties, then management has to make a choice. Stay on the boat and sink with Imus or jump ship and save yourself. Which one would you choose?

Willie D Bald Headed Hoes Lyrics

(talking)

Haha, y'all thought this was Dragnet didnt you

Wrong answer again

This song is for all the mutherfuckin chicken head bitches

And we kept the mutherfuckin names the same

Cause we think being a bald head bitch is a god damn shame

 

[Verse 1]

What the fuck is goin on in this god damn world

What are you bitch a boy or a girl?

I can't tell cause your shit on the sides is gone

You remind me of that monkey lookin bitch Grace Jones

Fucked up is how you look to Willie D

I just gotta have a bitch that has more hair than me

Some try to cover up by weavin it through

You ain't foolin nobody

We know your bald headed too

 

Chorus:

Bald Head Hoes

Whatcha see D, w-w-w-whatcha see D

I see some bald headed hoes

Bald Head Hoes

Whatcha see D, w-w-w-whatcha see D

I see some bald headed hoes

 

[Verse 2]

There should be a crime against bald head hoes

Why they want to be bald

Nobody knows

Being bald makes a gal look like a beast

Stupid ass hoes ain't ya heard of grease

Hell naw

Cause if you did you'd have some up there

Like your pussy you gotta give it proper care

Every time I look around I see a damn disgrace

Motherfucking wig pieces all over the place

Its from them Bald head hoes

They just so damn mean

The meanest ass hoes I ever seen

Ain't got no hair so they act crude

And wanna go and pick a fight with the girls who do

Am I right? (you right)

Hell yeah Im right

Ive seen this shit night after night

Instead of wearin other peoples hair you dumbass bitch

You need to buy some dog mane and grow you own damn shit

 

Chorus

 

[Verse 3]

Now I just can't go with a bald head hoe

You ain't gotta ask why for me to tell you so

If I cant run through her hair with my hand

Somehow it seems like I be fucking a man

So stay away you bold hickies

I know you out there

Talkin to you hoes who ain't got no hair

Your sister bald Zanny

Your mamma bald Eddie

I bet you even got a bald headed ass granny

 

Chorus

 

(talking)

Now this is how you spot a bald headed hoe

 

[Verse 4]

Hair spots on a hot sunny day

Too many gaps in the scalp is a dead giveaway

I saw no hair Clair

Yesterday on the cut

Today I saw the girl her hair was down to her butt

I hope that she now, that I know it aint real

But I wont squeal not even on Andrea

Kim, Shawn or Merylinn

Nor Tamika and Rika the famous bald head twins

Something must be done

About these citizens

You ask

what will I do to support my fellow man?

Im proposing a bill

To capital hill

To kill all bald headed women at will

 

Chorus X2

 

:lol:

Hatin another man for his skin complexion

But I'm focused in another direction

Straight out the ghetto into rap

They saw blacks gettin' over and tried to hold us back

Fuckin' with me, what for?

Cause I ain't slammin' a guitar?

Blacks can call one another the “N” word and get away with it, whites can’t. Likewise, whites can call one another the “H” word or the “C” word and get away with it, blacks can’t.

 

Um, no. Don't even compare the two.

This dude is a moron.

"Don Imus chose to wear his hat like that and have that grumpy scowl on his face. WHY? He wants to DISTINGUISH himself from the rest of the crowd. Don Imus IS Hiphop. His mere usage of the term 'nappy-headed hos' is merely a byproduct of our Hiphop culture being diluted through the mainstream and permeating in the mindsets of middle America. The Rutgers women were INDEED kinky-haired, African-booty-scratchin hos. Even conservatives like Don 'Hiphop' Imus become obliged to use our Hiphop lingo -- our unique cultural form of communication! Imus IS Hiphop. You are Hiphop. I am Hiphop. Everyone knows that DJing is one of the four fundamental elements of Hiphop, and like DJ Kool Herc in the South Bronx over 30 years ago, DJ Don Imus also got on the mic behind the ones and twos and ripped it. I want Nas to speak at NASA so we can discuss spreading Hiphop to Mars, I want Rakim to host a proposed rap version of American Idol, and I want DJ Don Imus to release a collaboration album with DJ K-Slay and I will help grace it with my rapture. Graffiti. DJin. Emceein. Breakin. South Bronx."

What is the 'H' word?

 

And where did nappy head originate from anyway?

 

Is KRS one so happy all the time due to the overwhelming amount of oxygen he must inhale due to the size of his nose and mouth? But he/Theo does have a point in what they are saying in the above post.

Honkey.

How stupid.

Friends of mine took to calling each other crackers, in much the same way blacks call each other niggas. I thought it was mildly retarded, but maybe they are trying to make it an empowerment word like black rappers do with their use of the word?

i thought a lot of what willy d said was on point myself. a little i disagreed with.

 

what makes me mad about this stupid situation is, if the roles had been reversed, a black man saying some shit about some white person, i dont think people would have made as big a deal about the situation. its just society's nature.

 

or thats how i see it now.

 

just like in that one movie, where the black kids are swimming in "the white man's swimming pool" or whatever that gay movie was about that just came out, i hate shit like that, where it's like promoting black people have it bad because of whites putting them down or talking racist shit to them and then the blacks over coming the shit.

 

im tired of stupid shit like that, either way it goes, whether its blacks coming out on top or whites, im just tired of seeing shit like that.

 

and i also hate how mexicans are never brought up. its always blacks vs white or visa versa.

 

lets have some shit where its mexicans vs asians for some shit for a bit.
