The Grapevine: “It Could Happen Here Too” [February 13th, 1983]
When “Rowdy” Roddy Piper made his way to the Florida NWA territory, not much was known in the area about the superstar that immediately turned heads. It was quickly distributed that this was a man to not only bare witness to, but to fear if you had the cajones to step into the ring with the “hot Scot”. A very cool blurb about the debuting Piper, who looks as innocent as can be in the photo, but was always anything but!
So nobody is going to talk about how today, July 25, 2016. Dr. Dre, gets cuffed and patted down at his own home, because a white motorist lied on Dr. Dre saying he had a gun on him.
The story: Dr. Dre tries to pull up to his home and someone on a motorcycle was blocking his drive way. Dr. Dre tells the man to get out of the way. The man does, but started yelling and cursing at dr. Dre and even started saying racist things like “ Here comes another black guy with a gun”. So Dr. Dre pulls out his phone and stated recording the man saying all of this stuff about him.
The white man calls the police on Dr. Dre, as Dr. Dre pulls up into his house. He told the cops Dr. Dre had a gun on him.They show up, cuff him and patted him down. The cops found that he did not have a gun.
And People wonder why we call rappers like A$AP Rocky stupid for saying they don’t speak out against things like this happening to black people because they have some success on their hands so they aren’t a part of that kind of black community anymore. “They don’t live that life”
Well here you go, The richest rapper right now and one of the most successful, Asap rocky is nowhere near this kind of success, and he still has to deal with shit like this. And there are people who actually think A$AP was saying “truth” when he said that mess.
Thats stupid as hell, nobody is inevitable. All you have to do is be black.
