Hip Hop Joe Budden vs...Who?

I don't know who Random is, but i'm feeling the way Joe Budden handled this hip hop beef. This is another beautiful snatch from www.illdoctrine.com. Rappers KNOW they're getting old, its time to act like it.

Long Distance Tagging- Get Yours! Palestine

RAMALLAH, West Bank – This is so damn cool -- The newest and most politically charged Graffiti space-the massive concrete barrier separating Israel from the Palestinians.
Over the Internet, a group of Palestinian graf artists ( members of the Palestinian Peace and Freedon Youth Forum) are offering to spray-paint your personal message on Israel's towering security wall in the occupied West Bank.
It costs $40 a message and you can say whatever....just don't get too crazy
I'm doing it...I'm thinking " The World Is Ours!" in all caps...its a chance to be a little part of the hope-making process. And your message will stand until peace reigns... Knowing Israel and Palestine thats gonna be a minute.


"It is a new way to speak with the people, that we the Palestinians exist," says graffiti artist Yusef Njm।

Shepard Fairey fighting Associated Press for his Obama Image

Are they serious? The now famous "Obey" style Image of Obama was based on a photograph taken by Associated Press's freelance photographer Manny Garcia...So now they want a cut of the tens of thousands of dollars that has swirled around the image. Fortunately it seems that Shepard Fairey didn't make more than a little added fame off of it-(well that's his story for the moment anyway). It took the photographer two seconds to snap that photo and prob took Fairey hours to repaint it. The photograph isn't what excited the globe and it couldnt have, it is one of millions and easily replaceable, Fairey's hard work made it gold.

I don't think they deserve a cut ( especially off of a photo they never even used), but that's me.

Of course this doesnt' mean its set in stone. Apple patents a lot of nonsense just on principle. But i'm getting excited... I may have to (gulp) switch to AT&T.
