David Banner on #Swayinthemorning Part 1
In light of the newly released joint cd (BAYTL) released by V-Nasty and Gucci Mane I will do my best to offer my opinion at times but stick to reporting the facts in this article. If I expressed too much of my opinion I would surely have to be labeled a “hater”so I’ll save it for later. I wouldn’t want my (haterish) personal opinion to take away from the seriousness of the topic.
Recently David Banner sat down with Sway and Devi Dev to discuss V-Nasty’s new release as well as break down the motivation behind the song “Swag”. The interview can be seen on yt channel SwaysUniverse and has been chopped into three different segments.
Because each segment has a slightly different focus I’m going to cover each segment as if they were independent of each other. Here is part 1:
Sway starts the interview by going to a live caller who refers to David Banner as “real hood” because he came down to Mississippi and offered financial assistance to residents after hurricane Katrina. Immediately after Sway began offering his definition of the word “hood”. Sway says that being”hood”really means being conscious in all forms of the word,i.e. conscious of your environment and lucid of your surroundings. Sway then goes on to say “In hiphop we repeat ignorance so much that it sticks to us”.
Sway the went on to speak about doing community outreach with David Banner and says “that’s hood to me.” After that Sway played an audio clip from the BATYL cd in which V-Nasty says the following:
Got more bricks then houses in Atlanta/damn/ how a white bitch more hood than David Banner?
Banner’s response was “I never heard that before.” As hard as I find that to believe I still continued to watch the interview. Banner goes on to explain that it doesn’t bother him to be called out by V-Nasty. He says that “the plight between our races is so much bigger than her. I honestly think that she don’t know no better.”
You’ve probably seen a news clip or heard a soundbyte from the past week of a commentator mentioning Ron Paul’s infamous newsletters.
Ron Paul has recently gained alot of media attention after it was announced that he was the current front runner in the Iowa caucuses. The Grio has sounded off on the issue. The publication stopped short of calling Dr. Paul a racist but claims at the very least that the letters were “racially insensitive”. Read what The Griot wrote here.
Is Ron Paul Afraid of His Past??
I first heard of Ron Paul in 2007. There was a big push for more information on income tax law and the Federal Reserve. At the same time the 911 Commission Report was under great scrutiny.
Along with this wave of information and newly found enlightenment came an enthusiastic push for presidential candidate named Ron Paul.
I personally found Ron Paul to be knowledgeable, even tempered and articulate. With his fiscally conservative views, knowledge of government and moderate foreign relations policies Paul seemed to be the perfect candidate for newly rejuvenated online revolutionaries. Many frustrated Americans felt bamboozled by the whole income tax debacle and false flag propaganda that had been peddled as truth. Paul was the straight shooter or so we thought.
There has consistently been one major chink in Pauls armor, i.e. the rumor that RP was/is a racist and a closeted white supremacist. Among the accusations of Paul’s racist past was a rumored vote against the effort to honor Rosa Parks in the senate. I was pleased to look into it and find this:
I like Ron Paul. I’ve said it before. My issue with RP is that he treats his past as if he is scared to talk about it. Talking around a subject has not been his style. He normally tackles an issue head on. It has become his signature and the thing that I think people respect most about him. RP gives very vague answers in regards to his newsletters but is extremely detailed when discussing any other issue. I believe that in order to be a good leader he would have to tackle this head on and answer all questions with great detail. Not doing so leaves room for distraction and a valid reason for voters to be leary.
The video was posted on a youtuber’s called decalos99‘s channel. The text in the vlog reads:
Presidential candidate Ron Paul was defensive Wednesday when pressed about controversial newsletters in the 1980s and 1990s that were in his name.
When asked during an interview with CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger whether he looked at them when they were published and decided they did not represent him accurately, he said “not all the time.” Pressed on whether he read them he said, “Not all the time. Well, on occasion, yes.”
Paul, who had left Congress at the time and was practicing medicine, has repeatedly disavowed the controversial remarks in the newsletters.
“I’ve never read that stuff. I’ve never read – I came – I was probably aware of it 10 years after it was written and it’s been going on 20 years that people have pestered me about this and CNN does it every single time,” he said.
Among the racially charged comments contained in the publications was this one from 1992: “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks.” They also contained some conspiracy theories.
When Borger asked him if this was a legitimate topic, he became testy saying “Yeah and when you get the answer, it’s legitimate that you sort of take the answers I gave. You know what the answer is? I didn’t write them, didn’t read them at the time, and I disavow them. This is the answer.”
Existence of the controversial newsletters, which listed Paul as publisher and carried such names as “Ron Paul’s Freedom Project,” the “Ron Paul Political Report,” the “Ron Paul Survival Report” and the “Ron Paul Investment Letter,” was first reported in 2008 in the New Republic. The Weekly Standard followed up this week.
Paul can expect more scrutiny with the news he is at the top of some polls in Iowa, less than two weeks before the Jan. 3 caucuses.
During a swing Wednesday, he drew large crowds and enthusiastic responses to his anti-establishment message and calls for fiscal restraint.
Paul’s campaign has hit Newt Gingrich hard in campaign commercials accusing him of “serial hypocrisy” for changing positions and using his influence to help build his consulting business.
When CNN asked him whether he would be willing to take down these ads because many Iowans have voiced displeasure with the negative nature of this year’s campaign he said he would not.
“I don’t consider them attacking him unfairly. I mean, it just points out the position he’s been on. That’s my job, to show what my opponents do. They flip-flop around and they change positions, and if the media won’t do it, I should do it,” he said in the interview.

Artist Spotlight: Meet Bakko
Youtube is starting to embrace this girl. The attention grabbing video title says “KREAYSHAWN GOT COMPETITION WHITE GIRL RAPPING”. It features an unknown femcee rapping over a table beat and then singing a love ballad (about marijuana). The video has become a YT crowd favorite. It is currently at over 100,000 views with a total of 1,076 likes and 80 dislikes.
The video left me wanting more information. Had no idea what the girls name was until I browsed through all 600 plus comments and found:
hey people im the girl in the vid..let it be known, i don’t consider myself a rapper its just a hobby of mine..I do it for fun. Anyways singing is what im really tryin to pursue. click my channel if yall wanna hear some of my songs…peace… 😉
So it turns out that she’s a singer, not a rapper at all. Here’s a sample of what her YT channel has to offer:
After doing a little searching around I was able to finally come upon this interview. In case you wondering like me, here’s a little more information about Bakko:
According to DefyNewYork.com her name is Barbare Mchedlishvili AKA Bakko. She was born in Tbilisi, Georgia (located in Eastern Europe). Bakko came to America at age 6 and grew up in central Virginia. Her singing career started at the age of 12 and she learned to play the guitar during visits to her native country. She has attended an art school where she majored in visual arts. Read more.
I think the chic is dope. What’chu think?
According the vlog info on MadlionTV KRS-One has a new album on the way called “Just Like That”. Mad Lion produced it and it is expected to drop 1st Quarter 2012. The album will be released on Killahpride Records.
Above is promo video for the album. The song is called “Holiday Gift Style”.
