Marxist revolutionary. Castro's right hand man during the Cuban revolution, and that particular picture of him is a fairly common leftist (or, I guess I should say, revolutionary) image. Just seemed a bit odd to see Jigga wearing that shirt, but hey, as long as the Roots are rock rockin' it on stage with him Jigga can do very little wrong in my eyes.

Oh, so I guess I'm not the only one who was rocked by that. It's particularly interesting to see him wearing that in light of all this patriotism. I mean that shirt might be construed as being anti-democracy or dare I say anti-American. Jigga Man might be in danger of losing his TRL pass. But I'm not mad at the shirt goddammit!!!

In response to Reply # 2


  

          

fashion has no respect for cultural, political or any other icons.

Jay-Z's music is the complete opposite of everything Che Guevara stood for, I doubt that Jay-Z even knows who Guevara is.

And if he does, it's even worse.

Imagine Donald Trump wearing a Malcolm X shirt ...

Slacker bounded imitated tabloid headlined with the post
Shimmy cross the centerfold, and a dead time in ghosts
Giving crumbs for the better souls with seven deadly sins
To hear the plane to crystal conscious
To results a low life counting on one hand what he's accomplished
Ok, lift me to activism chain activate street sweep
Plug in deteriorating zenith pen dragging
I hack swords wars for the morbid spreading of mad men
Now he's got soul
Sitting there licking log cabin in Charlie Chaplin waddle
I could zig zag and zig 'em again for the bad dreams
Sparking my brick wall windows another thicket storm
And if one night in Gotham without the wretched
Houston we have a problem
Dispatch a task of infested patch of city goblins
Who split how many freaks with box cuts of a high road bellow
Heads ripped! Watch red bricks turn yellow
Sort of similar to most backbones at camp Icarus
Raw feelings start congregating at pamper for bickering
Life's not a bitch life is a beautiful woman
Your only call her a bitch because she won't let you get that pussy
Maybe she didn't feel y'all shared any similar interests
Or maybe you're just an asshole who couldn't sweet talk the princess
Kiss the speaker wire or either pass it for some pagan thresh hold
Stomach full of halo kibbles
Wings span cast black of porn visuals hear the duck hunt ticker tape
Vision and pick apart the pixels
I got a friend of polar nature and it's all peace
When I seek similar stars but can't sit at the same feast
Metal Captain!
This cat is asking if I've seen his little lost passion
I told him: "Yeah, but only when I pedaled past him" - Aesop Rock

Kyle
