In a recent poll taken in randomly-selected high
schools throughout the country, students were asked who should come back from the dead out of the following people:
Tupac Amaru Shakur
El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X)
of the above
Here are the results:
1. John Lennon (28%)
2. Tupac (26%)
3. Jesus (21%)
4. Malcolm X (15%)
Mother Teresa (8%)
6. Shakespeare (1%)
7. None of the above (1%)
Okay, so let me get this straight. More
students chose Tupac over the son of god? Shiiit. Then again it's not like I would have picked either of them. What amuses
me the most is the clear hatred that high school students have for Billy Shakespeare.
Personally I would have chosen
Malcolm X (maybe Mother Teresa, but to be honest I don't know as much as I should about her and I'm not going to act like
I do by choosing her). I love Lennon, but music takes a backseat to politics where I come from.
Oh, speaking of dead MCs, I gotta say I was sad
to hear about J. Dilla's death two weeks ago. His presence may be gone but his music never will be.
