I was listening to Nas’ new album the other day and this stood out:
Pre-trial hearin is over, it’s real for the soldier
Walks in the courtroom, the look in his eyes is wild
Triple-homicide, I sit in the back aisle
I wanna crack a smile when I see him
Throw up a fist for black power, cause all we want is his freedom
He grabbed a court officer’s gun and started squeezin
Then he grabbed the judge, screams out — nobody leavin everybody get down!
For some reason it really reminded my of Eldred vs. Ashcroft and the whole Free the Mouse campaign. That is all.
