“Bop Gun (one nation)” by Ice Cube

Old school, baby…..loved this tune back in the day.  Ice Cube putting his spin on a George Clinton classic.  At the very least your toes better be tapping by the end of this or you are a zombie.  In which case if you are a zombie, and you understand these words, we’re all screwed as you’ve obviously evolved.  It was a good ride while it lasted, humanity.

My daughter and I love this song, my wife hates it. She can’t get past this guy’s off-key voice. Boo to her. The Biz has a good sense of humor.

The original video.

And Biz performing this song at de Melkweg in Amsterdam. Biz seemed to have been enjoying all that Amsterdam has to offer. 🙂 He forgets some of the lyrics, but it’s cool to see how popular this song is 20 yrs. later on a different continent.
