[SOHH highlights a hot record each week and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Three 6 Mafia's DJ Paul breaks down his new Kokoe-featured "Wild'N" record, Mississippi spitter David Banner gives us an in depth look at the Sex, Drugs and Video Games track, "Malcolm X."]
"All my favorite rappers either dead or in jail/ I don't wanna teach 'em/ I don't wanna teach these little girls to put their p**sy on the floor, then at the end of the night, get their money off the floor." - David Banner
What I was saying is, like, I've done things that I'm not proud of and as far as the things I rap about, I don't want these kids to be like me.
All the stuff that I did ain't right and alotta times, kids only get to see us at this point in our life and they never get to see our evolution. They never get to see the other part of our life and who God allowed us to grow into. I would rather the kids be like Patrice Lumumba or Malcolm X.
I don't want them to be like me, but the most important part of the song is that I'm saying, "Yeah we violent, yeah we hard, but we only hard towards us."
That ain't our boat! Black people don't have the money or connections to bring boats full of drugs to the United States. That ain't coming from us. We don't manufacture drugs -- that ain't us, but we get blamed more. And we get prosecuted more and nobody ever talks about that. We only shoot ourselves, dude. I don't wanna teach that.
We teach our kids to ball, knowing in our heart that ain't the way you accumulate true wealth. We know that ain't the way that you really get rich. Because whatever got you hot, 9 times outta 10 if you an African American it ain't gonna last no more than four years. So you're ballin' at a rate that you can't keep up with. I don't wanna teach that.
