Game! Part 2

So there's this song I like. You may have heard it: it's called "Where You At?", and it's used for the Boost Mobile commercials starring Kanye "George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People" West. Despite its origin as a rather crass piece of advertising, it's really a great song: produced by Kanye, and featuring excellent versifying by Ludacris and the Game. And it's the latter who threw me for a loop when I was bouncin' to this song on the way to work.

The sixth line of his section of the song goes:

In the projects, the objective is makin' dollars

But I keep hearing it as:

In the projects, the Objectivists makin' dollars

Which, you know. I guess it's not that far off message, but it distracted me enough that I had to head over to OHHLA to make sure I wasn't really hearing the first salvo in a volley of Randcore rap.

Comin' from the Institute
Hundred-dollar suit
I'm from Compton's cityscapes
Where they wear bandanas and dollar bill capes
Lovin' it like Dominique is lovin' date-rapes
We stiff like Gary Cooper's starched collars
In the projects, the Objectivists makin' dollars
It ain't a problem to get it there tomorrow
'Cause I got a female mentor who ain't never gonna borrow
Tell philosophy on one foot, got the IQ of a Rhodes scholar
If you follow Ayn Rand, shout out "A is A" -- holla
To the gods and the earths, throw ya hands up in tandem
Or I'll kick you to the curbs like ya name was Nate Branden
And if you're sportin' ice you know where to hand 'em
I study rational self-interest by design
Watch my game shine, my mentor's name rhyme with 'mine'
Like I got mine, you get your own and that's fine
Not to mention I am Peikoff-christened on behalf
of Greenspan and Kelley as they're rockin' Pelle Pelles
