    Link: Read a Book - I guess the folks at BET think this is the way to get kids to read. Warning: adult language.

    Funny, although stupid and repetitive.

    Remember kids, you have to read a BOOK (not a magazine), drink water, raise your kids, and brush your teeth, but it doesn`t matter how many times you say "Motherf*ck" of " N*gga", as long as you`re trying to motivate teenagers.

    I rather liked the Clockwork Orange reference. :-D
    But it`s hard to tell if the video`s makers are being ironic and/or making fun of attempts to appeal to youth, or if they seriously think this will appeal to youth. My Vote: Ironic.

    Very odd video... but what does this have to do with BET?

    I didn`t see any indication that BET was involved... unless it was shown on BET...

    and if I`m right and this has nothing to do with BET, it`s just racist, the post, not the video

    Apparently, I was wrong. Rap CAN get stupider and more repetitive. When the h*ll is it going to FINALLY DIE?

    The animation was weird too, it reminded me of a Gorillaz music video/Ren and Stimpy episode. Not saying anything bad about either, I love them both.

    ...Who is this supposed to appeal to? Most parents would never let their kids watch it, and if they did I`m sure they wouldn`t understand what`s going on. And it`s supposed to appeal to teenagers, well if you don`t know to brush your teeth, wear deodarant, etc. aren`t you a lost cause already?

    Please let this be a joke.

    Of course it`s a joke, people.

    Not like anyone that`s speaking down on it listens to rap, but right in the beginning he says:
    "I usually do songs wit like, hooks and concepts, and sh*t right? But F*ck that, I`m tryin to go platinum!"
    Poking fun at the fact that mainstream rap sucks balls.

    It`s not a show, it`s a dude named D`mite. You can listen to some of his other songs on

    I could not even watch it all the way through I think my ears are bleeding. This is the polar opposite of anything I would want to watch on this known universe because it combines two of my least favorite things, rap and preachy things telling kids to read and be good and crap. Plus it was just plain stupid.

    Hey racists, get a life. Your ignorance is showing.

    It`s called satire.

    For all you guys who are being racist for the fact that this was suppose to be a joke, calm down. It was funny, if you don`t want to listen to it, by the fact of what they`re saying, just leave it alone, some african american people on this site can be offended. Not right, gah. >=o =]]!

    First of all, XX, the people who made this are just a racist as anyone. Second, there are very few actual "African Americans" in the United States. African Americans are people who came from Africa and became Americans. Most of them would look at this and be ashamed. These are just people whose skin are black who are capitalizing on the ignorance of a vast amount of black people. The only benefit we may see from this is the potential for well read racist black people who like to curse and say the "N" word a lot.

    Though I do have one other thing to point-out: this is what happens when black culture is so paranoid of practicing and/or benefiting from anything considered to be `white` that they go out of their way to `negrotize` our every practical institution, in this case literacy.
