When theres Arab Money......



**just wanted to highlight a few reactions by Arab-Americans to arab money:

"Busta Rhymes is a genius to me musically, he is someone who pioneered a style and someone I grew up listening to since the age of 13. ... But man, you know, the time and effort put into the hook by Ron Browz was really really really really depressing. At a time when our brothers and sisters are dying worldwide, we are subject to so much racism and insanity, I would want or expect a brother of this stature to speak on our people in a way that is intellectual, understanding and of growth. " - via The Narcicyst / Yassin Alsalman's clever response to arab $$

"My first thought when I heard the offensive chorus sandwiched in between gibberish "Arabic" ("The way i make the people wanna sing the hook in Arabic : LaLaLa HaleHeloHaLow/HelaBalaHeHeleBalo/We gettin Arab Money/We gettin Arab Money"): WTF Busta?" - Maytha @ Kabobfest

"At the end of the day, its up to the artist to win over the crowd. As an artist i dont do music to cater to just my people. I make music and I make a living off of it. I make it for the love of hip hop. I love my people and always represent and will always let the world know who I am and where I come form. I recommend to other up and coming artists to cater to all types of demographics and not just one group.. be diverse in your message." - Noose / Naseem

"Sometimes, people like to twist things. We ain't mockin' the culture. We ain't tryin' to be disrespectful. Ain't no racism going on right here.
If you listen to the song, you see that we are actually acknowledging the fact that the Arabian culture, a middle East culture is one of the few cultures, that value passing down hard work riches that's been built amongst the family.
It would be nice if a lot of other cultures did the same thing. Feel me? So, I would like for it to be like that in my culture where we could build things to the point where we got so much that we don't need to rely on other cultures to contribute majorly in a financial way, or in whatever other way, to societies, communities or whatever governments we might live in. So, we are actually biggin' up the culture. At the end of the day, I want to be like that. I think a lot of us want to be like that." - Busta HISSESLF
