Unlike her appearances in her gun-laden rap videos, Motown’s Molly Brazy’s is soft-spoken to the point of incomprehension in her Say Cheese interview. In the interests of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia, I cranked-up the volume, rode herd on the pause and rewind buttons, and did my best to parse Ms. Brazy’s pistol-related pronouncements.
I immediately learned that Ms. Brazy puts guns in her music videos “because I can.” Which doesn’t rule-out a commercial motive. Just sayin’. As for real world firearms possession, Ms. Brazy has a distinctly Texan perspective: “Who’d gonna come and take it from me?” Addressing the anti-gun flak aimed at her direction, she points out “You don’t always have to shoot it. You can pistol whip with that bitch.” OK then . . .
Apparently, the phrase for shooting a gun in certain urban areas is “bust a gun.” A skill which Ms. Brazy has mastered. “I shot a Draco before,” she tells Say Cheese. “That bitch don’t have no kick on it.” Really? And who knew that a Romanian AK-47 pistol is the sh*t in the ‘hood?
On at least a few levels, the rapper isn’t overly concerned about being a bad role model. “I don’t really give a f*ck,” she admits. Ms. Brazy goes on to reveal that she used to be a gang banger. Sorry, “mafia member.” And that all four of her brothers are currently in jail.
I’m not sure what to make of all this. While I’m a constant cheerleader for black gun ownership, Ms. Brazy doesn’t seem like the ideal spokesperson for the right to keep and bear arms. You tell me. I’ve got to go and check my white privilege.
I like here attitude… then again, I like cholera.
I don’t really like chocolate, although I could probably be convinced to indulge in the darker sweets. Typically, I’m straight vanilla.
Like Molly would give a fuck????
I can’t understand but about every third word. Is it too much to ask that they use subtitles?
Using subtitles for someone speaking Ebonics is racist, think of it as East Texas accent verses Coon Ass accent, you just have to listen to it for a while before you understand it.
Capisce (pronounced cah-PEESH) is an Italian word that is used in American slang to say “got it” or “understand.” The correct word in Italian would be capisci (pronounced cah-PEE-shee) to address the second person informally, a.k.a. you. Capisce, in Italian, is used only to address the second person formally (like when speaking to an elder or someone you don’t know) or to express that a third person (he, she, it) understands. The correct Italian pronunciation of capisce is cah-PEE-shay.
Now, try in eubonics.
She’s not speaking Eubonics and she’s not hard to understand at all. I got 100% of what she was saying without any difficulty.
Her braces affect her speech more than any accent.
There are far far far harder to understand people from the inner cities, where it seems they are speaking a completely different language, but she is not one of them.
And I/we should give a flying f^c# about her or her opinions because………….?
Her influence on society? Bwahahahahahahahaha.
So says someone posting on an internet forum comment page.
Different culture than me. As long as she’s not doing anything illegal I won’t make fun.
I’ll take the other woman in Detroit shooting her repossessed, condemned house and endangering her children waving the gun around over Ms. Molly. Thank you very much.
“…I’m a constant cheerleader for black gun ownership…”
That used to describe me. Lately, though…
Interestingly, for the most part, the video shows that they generally have good trigger discipline.
Shitty rap, but they mostly keep their fingers off the bang switch.
I noticed that. I was pleasantly surprised.
I noticed that as well. That rap was…..poopoo. At least she”s got trigger discipline. Props. The other dudes…not souch that gun waving was cringe worthy. I’m on the potty and I almost shot one out I was so appalled.
They might not have muzzle discipline but, for the most part, they keep their booger hook off the bang switch. For the most part…
That said they need to listen to some decent rap and study it. If these fools came across a real rapper he might say something like “You’re mad ’cause my style you’re admirin’/Don’t be mad, UPS is hirin'”.
They always have a Draco in crappy rap videos aiming it 1 handed , probably why they keep missing and shooting 14 random people every day in Detroit/Oakland/Chicago/Baltimore insert libtard stronghold ……….
“Apparently, the phrase for shooting a gun in certain urban areas is “bust a gun.”
I heard it was “bust a cap”.
Am I (even more) behind the times?
Bust a cap means to shoot something (usually a person). To bust a gun just means to shoot it at nothing, or to shoot it in general.
Thank you from saving me from an explanation.
Christ, it’s like no one on TTAG ever lived in a truly bad neighborhood. Guess I was blessed with that… repeatedly.
I did have a ghetto bird fly over once. Chasing a dog bus. Does that count?
All she needs now is a law degree from harvard, then she can run for president.
Her melanin level makes her qualified for a doctorate, despite her intellect wouldn’t get her a janitorial job.
No one hurt, no fraks given, she can carry on wit her bad self.
Rights are rights, even if we disagree with the lifestyle.
“Motown’s Molly Brazy’s is soft-spoken to the point of incomprehension in her Say Cheese interview.”
Being soft spoken had little to do with the incomprehension. This is how my friends in school sounded after too much bong time.
That’s just so incredibly sad that I scarcely have words for it. From so many perspectives and for so many reasons. The cavalier, utterly thoughtless and nonreflective nihilism that she displays is a testament to how far certain segments of our society have devolved. Embrace the suck. Embrace this new endarkenment. Then rise above it and defeat it.
An artist using guns in part of their work is called deviant by today’s standards. However strap on dildo’s in art in just normal every day museum quality work.
The world has changed.
Maybe it’s time for Kush RNA.
Do we have to make things easier for the libs with yet another “black person says/does something foolish” post? It seems like there have been more of these lately, and they feel like own goals when we all know what’s going to show up in the comments and how that plays to the liberal narrative about us.
Who is this person and why should we care?
Like RF, I am a constant cheerleader for black gun ownership. Especially in Chicago, where black gun ownership seems to be doing more to reduce the number of gangsters than Chicago’s cops have ever done.
Maybe a few COD style Care Packages heli-dropped across Chiraq might reduce some numbers…..
J/K… that was in bad taste.
We are doomed.
She should have said she’s a good role model, and followed with “Just try to rape an armed black chick — try that, bro, she shoot your dick.”
She looks like she is about twelve in that interview. It is sad that she seems almost boastful when she says all her brothers are locked up or dead. Want to know what is wrong with inner city youth liberals? Here it is.
They aren’t liberal, they just vote liberal to get the handouts.
I can see why Harvard accepted her for admission.
Hmm. A few observations FWIW.
1) Unless you share this young woman’s melanin level you may never feel the intense sadness I do.
2) I’ve made a living in video production; you couldn’t pay me to come within a block of that shoot. People have tried. I’ve refused.
3) Cognitive dissonance is real. This crappy art form is integral to the culture that repeatedly uses the nonsensical, oxymoronic phrase “toy gun”.
4) After all the anti-gun legislation is passed and honest people are beat or shot into submission, these are the lovely society members that will still be armed.
