Humble Tip, "LU Anthem"

With its stomping martial beat and heraldic horn synths, Liberty University's new rap anthem sounds like something you might hear Young Jeezy or T.I. spitting greasy southern trap tales over. But when Jason "Humble Tip" Lewis gives props to school founder Jerry Falwell, or rhymes about the dangers of having an open mind, or why it's not cool to drink or do drugs or have sex, the sharp cadence of his voice bears the influence of venerable East Coast MCs like Jay-Z or Treach. The heads at Right Wing Watch are bumping this joint all day. But I actually prefer the live version. Because I like watching the Liberty administration dudes throwing the university gang sign in the background.

Oh, and if you thought Waka Flocka Flame's new jam is crunk, Humble Tip has a message for you:

And if you're planning on taking a vacation to sunnier climes this winter, he has a message for you, too:

this is what i think of when people say "dangerous religious extremists" – if only Islam had this kind of HOTT BEATZ

Check out Sufi Islam's Qawwalis–they're these hypnotic chantings set to music. I like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and party: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6izXG0-mq-0 The song starts at 3:30

Is there some way for me to appreciate the tags without actually playing the videos?

I went to Liberty University. I got college credit to PA on one of Humble TIP's older videos.

"college credit"

Yeesh. Those were certainly some days.

I can't for the life of me fathom why someone would willingly go to Liberty University.

I went to a small Christian liberal arts school. That hasn't done much for me lately, but it was a great experience. Though most of the student body were conservative and very Christian, there were very active subcultures of punks, stoners, drinker and all sorts of debauchery. When you found your circle of friends, you grew _incredibly_ close. Because you were aligned against the rest of the students and the idiots in the administration, who were as loony as those at Liberty. Also, you got a damned good education, because it was so small that you got personal attention from your professors, the vast majority of them being _incredibly_ liberal, because they'd all earned master's and Ph.D. and in so doing had learned how to think for themselves. They taught that lesson well, if you were willing to learn it.

@Growler: I had exactly the same experience at a small secular liberal arts college only without the conservative Christians. So I guess deep down college weirdos are all just college weirdos.

Christ was the original Jeezy, after all.

Well, you know what they say: "If you like rap music and black people, head on over to Liberty University."

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Boogie Down Productions Present "Straight Outta Provo", a Vai Sikahema joint.

Guess I missed the part about the 'No Interracial Dating' rule.

Black people are allowed to go to Liberty? That is actually a serious question.

This rap is hilarious to me because a lot of these "Bible Colleges" actually ban contemporary Christian music from campus.

My childhood best friend is attending one right now and there are more rules ("structure") than any of our parents had for us while we were growing up.

The guy in the Liberty T-Shirt is a reincarnation of Mick Jagger.
