The Free State
"Man, in a word, has no nature. What he has is - history."

Posted a little video on YouTube to see what I could make fooling around with Windows Movie Maker. Threw together a bunch of themed Mobutu pics to Busta Rhymes' 'Touch It'. What does the deceased Zairian despot have in common with American hip hop? Both are about cars, money, ho's, etc. etc. and being a badass motherf*cker.

I feel somewhat bad about Lumumba being rather ingloriously in the clip (he was the democratic leader who led Congo/Zaire to independence, and was arrested and eventually killed in 1961 by a neocolonial racist Belgium, a hysterically anti-Communist USA and an opportunist Mobutu). Points to anyone who knows the other themes.
