  • Our favorite is TOURe interview with rapper Jim Jones about the Barack Obama victory:

    Jim confessed that the election inspired him to drop the word “nigga” from his vocabulary-where it was a nearly ubiquitous presence-and replace it with “Obama.” He gave me a few examples: “What up, my Obama?” “Yo, did you see them Obamas last night?” “Now that’s a real Obama.”
