    Fuck Rhymefest for supporting and speaking on El Che, mother-fucker’s is ignorant, first Jay and now this idiot. Do people even read or do research? El Che was a murdering dictator who made the K.K.K look like a bunch of Nun’s. I will never support his ass again,

  22. Ram0 Says:

    That’s kind of a controversial title.

  23. Jersey Spic Says:

    FUCK this bum. His rhymes are mediocre at best. And WTF is good with every ignorant little cornball rapper wanting to use Che’s name? I thought that trend died out years ago. Che was a bum, a ultra mass murderer, and a worthless military strategist. People that think Che was this peter pan liberator have no idea what the fuck their actually representing. Better keep that shit in your neighborhoods. Better keep that shit out of north jersey late night. Or you might just find yourself in a fucked up predicament that isn’t worth rocking a shirt. Faggot ass nigga. Cuba Libre.

  24. lotsoflaughs Says:

    Hey Jersey Spic—not for nothin but his real name is Che. Might have a lil’ somethin to do widdit.

    Rhymefest has a lot to say and I’m glad he’s saying it. This video is an inventive and effective way to not only get the word out about his new album, but inspire change in the hip hop community. ‘Fest says in the video, ” People criticize me…but what are YOU doing?” I was just thinking about how everybody is saying “hip hop is dead”, but no one is doing anything about it. Rhymefest offers a unique perspective and a gravitating personality which will make people stop and listen. I do somewhat agree, though, with the commenter “Jersey Spic” because it is true rappers have now abused the name of Che Guevara for a few years now. I wonder if many rappers even know who he is and the full extent of what he did in Argentina. I think Rhymefest is different, though, because not only was he named after the revolutionary, but he does not seem as one who takes on topics and issues lightly, especially concerning the amount of change he wishes to inspire. Do you think he is abusing the Che Guevara image and legacy like so many others, or do you think he is really genuine in his admiration and acknowledgment? I also wonder if you have any idea what he meant when he said “Hip hop is separated in two right now, I want to do something different”? In my best guess, the two subdivisions he is referring to are “conscious” hip hop (i.e. those with a message like Kanye West, Common, or Mos Def) and “party rap” like Mims, Soulja Boy, and Jibbs. So is he saying he does not want to be a part of conscious hip hop and carve another unique path, or does he want to stay on that “real” hip hop side? I am not exactly sure and I hope by the time his album drops he will have the answers. I would have liked to hear a few words from you, the author, on the video as well, but maybe simply posting the video was response enough. Rhymefest really is one of the most underrated lyricists of our generation, and even if he is never remembered for his music, I hope that is remembered for his contributions to the hip hop culture and the state of society at large

    The guy’s first name is Che, you dumb piece of shit, you got that? It’s not a call to arms for communists, he’s utilizing a name everybody has heard of, and it makes sense because that’s actually his name too.

  27. Ryan Says:

    i think we all got that much. but even though that is his name, it represents much more than his name. it represents the part of the hip-hop world that is dominated by liberal bull-shit that includes a false idolization of this fairy-tale character che, whose false labels of “freedom fighter” and “liberator” drive me fucking nuts. he not only killed thousands of people, but he didn’t do shit for cuba. he helped turn a country of tyranny into a nation of communism, so he did not by any means restore cuban freedom. any rapper who reps che, and any dumb ass who wears his shirt reps complete ignorance. i dig the beats, but i could do without the ignorance
