IT'S TRUE. The ever weird and awesome band "THE TURTLES" set the stage for hip hoppers (De La Soul, Steady B, Biz Markie to name a few) to sample and loop this racist gem, "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea" ("come on, I wanna lay ya" yuck yuck) That's right. Some of your favorite songs are made of RACISM.
If Hip Hop is made of racism, and if I love Hip Hop, does that mean I love racism? Hahaha Don't get it twisted, I love this break and the songs that it spawned, but I ain't never looked the other way.
Big shout out to Mike 2600 for hippin me to the clip, and of course The Royal Macadamia Nuts.
