since this is in the public forum i will refrain from my initial thought...
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

It's kinda catchy. Guess BIG has a new song to bump from the G-ride, when he's cruising those mean streets.
But seriously, it's a shame there are so many low life, trash, uneducated but dumbacated muthaphuckas, to make such a video even possible.
By the way Term, read a book, read a book, read a muthaphuckin' book!!Don't Be Afraid To Fail.

I am appalled and angry. That is so incredibly wrong on so many levels, I don't even know where to begin. However, once I find the words I'll be using them in a letter to BET.

Are they freaking kidding me??!! I hope that this was supposed to be satire and not a legit ad campaign. If they are serious, I guess that would explain a lot.
