Nah, think about it.  I'm a white guy.  I CAN'T like that song.  I'm supposed to laugh and sing along about people living their lives in hell and wasting the little, inadequate bit of money the government gets them on fucking weed?  If I say I like that song, I'm saying I like seeing Black People Fucked Up.  Read the fucking lyrics.  Then yall got the balls to blame your problems on white people.  Blame  your problems on black people. 

You know what's just as bad as blacks who blame "whitey" for their problems?  White conservatives who go around looking for excuses to shift ALL blame to blacks and absolve themselves of any responsibility - as if Uncle Sam is guilt-free in all matters related to poverty.  You, Real American and others like you are perfect examples of this.  The only reason you probably listen to gangsta rap is not because you genuinely like the music, but because then you can see blacks acting savage and ignorant and then make the excuse that they're all lazyness on their part.

Anyway, you obviously haven't listened to the song carefully enough.  The song is as much a parody of welfare as a celebration of it - Bone is poking fun at welfare users (them blowing their entire checks in one day).  In fact, listen to Layzie's verse - he's playing the part of an opportunist dopeman who takes advantage of the 1st to get his hustle on because he knows that his regular customers will have money to buy crack from him.  It's lighthearted social commentary, not an encouragement of laziness - which means your white ass needs to lighten up and stop being so closed-minded.

Rapping about spending welfare checks and food stamps on weed, beer, and getting your hair braided.  This is the shit that holds blacks down.  Who's down for celebrating?

I hate to break it to you, but the fact that Dave Chappelle eschews political correctness doesn't mean he's "one of you" (by that, I mean a conservative).  Despite what right-wingers seem to believe, PICness and conservatism are two mutually exclusive concepts.

Not really important but...

It was Chris Rock who made fun of the song not Dave Chappelle.

I saw this thread so I popped in the CD.  I don't listen to it as much as I should.  I bought the album for that song.  This is a classic cd.

No. It's a stereotype and misconseption that you've decided to validate.
