Nike

Who count the money
In da neighborhood
But we spendin' money
To no end lookin' for a friend
In a war to the core
Rippin' up the poor in da stores
Till they get a brother
Kickin' down doors
Then I figure I kick it bigger
Look 'em dead in the eye
And they wince
Defense is pressurized
They don't want it to be
Another racial attack
In disguise so give some money back
I like Nike but wait a minute
The neighborhood supports so put some
Money in it
Corporations owe
Dey gotta give up the dough
To da town
or else
We gotta shut 'em down

(Public Enemy - Shut Em Down)

What happened to this type of thinking? I'm calling out Nike because they have so many people in the Hip Hop community mesmerized and brain washed in thinking that owning 20 pairs of kicks is in. I'm not hating on people who own Nike's, but if you have more than three pairs and paid more than $75 for each pair, then you have fallen into the major corporation trap.

How many more corporation are going to pimp the Hip Hop community for outlandish profits and use these profits to make themselves look big. How many big time athletes are going to make more millions on top of the millions they make at the Hip Hop communities expense.
It's sad that Hip Hoppers around the world blindly support such corruption.
