Clique like the heels of that dorthy chick SummerSoulstice by MusicForTheDef (Ft. HiriiTheHuman, Nia Keturah & Shawn Retro) 29

Dorothy, from the Wizard of Oz, had to click her ruby slippers together three times to go back home to Kansas. Hiri’s posse is as tight of a “clique” as the snapping sound of Dorothy’s shoes.

We grew up in the dirty dirty
Now I'm 'bouts to clean up
285 by Steve G. Lover

A nickname for the South, particularly Atlanta, is the “Dirty South.” Glover was raised in Atlanta, taking in the full part of its unique style for most of his life. All grown up, he keeps the tradition alive, “cleaning up” on his competition and winning. With his new change, he can afford to stay “clean” in the finest threads too.

Joe DiMaggio Centerfield by John Fogerty

If baseball were to have a set of 1st tier gods, Joe DiMaggio would be their god.

It was not just his talents — few could hit, steal, or score as much as him. It wasn’t his leadership — the Yankees became the Yankees with Joe’s presence. And it wasn’t his success — DiMaggio still holds the record for a whopping 56-game hitting streak. It was the whole package. Joe was, and is, baseball, representing everything the sport stood for, never bowing out, cheating, or degrading himself and bring a warrior’s honor to the field.

Well, I spent some time in the Mudville Nine
Watchin' it from the bench
You know I took some lumps when the Mighty Casey struck out
Centerfield by John Fogerty

The idea of the “Mudville Nine” comes from a poem, “Casey at the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic Sung in the Year 1888.” Fogerty’s version is written first-person, but highlights the same ideas that the original shared, especially Casey. Replace him with any legend — the pain of a strikeout will always resonate!

“But there is no joy in Mudville — mighty Casey has struck out.”

Looks like a cyclone sliding in
Joe DiMaggio's done it again
Joe DiMaggio Done it Again by Billy Bragg and Wilco (Ft. Woody Guthrie)

When Joe aimed to do something, he did it well. Case in point: sliding. Joe is rumored to have learned how to slide once — he immediately picked it up and produced one of the finest slides ever. In games, he was known for rushing bases, taking out opponents and charging home plate with the fury of a bull. Infamously, he did one of baseball’s more wonderful slides, jumping over the catcher to nail the run:

Watch that raggy pill split the wind Joe DiMaggio Done it Again by Billy Bragg and Wilco (Ft. Woody Guthrie)

“Raggy pill” is an old-school term for a baseball. Before DiMaggio’s time, baseball was a much more simple game, often played with whatever you could find. This meant gluing together clumps of cloth and other things to make a “ball,” which looked like a, well, raggy pill.

Some folks thought Big Joe was done
Some just figured Joe was gone
Steps to the platter with a great big grin
Joe DiMaggio's done it again
Joe DiMaggio Done it Again by Billy Bragg and Wilco (Ft. Woody Guthrie)

DiMaggio, among other things, is most famous for his assumed unbeatable 56-game hitting streak. Every time that fans expected Dago to quite literally drop the ball, he would prove them wrong, breaking every existing streak record. Eventually, it would simply be known as “The Streak.”

Go on, believe the lies inside your head
Turn yourself into the saint that never was
Love Again by Sleeperstar 2

Anyone that convinces themselves that they are always right can usually not be changed. If you believe yourself to be the victim, to always be the “saint” that does no wrong, you might be incorrect! The singer does not care — that’s just typical “you.”

I know you ain't a pimp, but pimp remember what I taught ya: International Player's Anthem (I Choose You) by UGK (Ft. Outkast)

Pimp is not reserved for the notorious hustler of women — a badass man can be a pimp by default. 3000 is cool enough to know the lessons of the street — namely to avoid getting attached to a woman — but in no way is an actual pimp. He still needs to know the reality.

Anyway, that kilt is fly!

The reason? In many poor neighborhoods, there is chaos, violence and little discipline in the public schools Thoughts on Lil Wayne and Al Sharpton by Bill O'Reilly

The generalization that urban, typically poor schools are “chaotic” is often repeated, but tends not to be that true. Schools, for many in unfortunate situations, are a safe haven — neutral territory, a source of food, and an actual opportunity to improve on life. Schools may be unruly, but the situation is a vast improvement to the so-called “poor neighborhood” experience.

O'Reilly is correct, though, in the negative effects of poor neighborhoods. A longitudinal study on “crack babies” indirectly revealed that a poor home life, combined with poverty, can cause serious setbacks in development. The link to unemployment, however, is not established.
