common senseWASHINGTON– Fox News is questioning why “vile rapper” Common is being invited to the White House for a poetry jam; claiming he is a controversial rapper who shouldn’t be invited because his past criticisms of former President George W. Bush and the police.

Fox News claims the “A Letter to the Law” poem  he performed on Def Poetry in 2007 was controversial and too violently themed:

Excerpt:

Use your mind and ninepower, get the government touch

Them boys chat-chat on how him pop gun

I got the black strap to make the cops run

With that happening, why they messing with Saddam?

Burn a Bush cos’ for peace he no push no button

Killing over oil and grease

no weapons of destruction

How can we follow a leader when this a corrupt one

The government’s a g-unit and they might buck young black people

Black people In the urban area one

I hold up a peace sign, but I carry a gun.

Peace, ya’ll.”
