MSNBC Anchor Quotes Mobb Deep Lyric While Dissing President Trump [VIDEO]
Hip-hop always fits in the political conversation for MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber. On his talk show, The Beat With Melber, the veteran journalist often delivers a hip-hop quotable as it relates to the politics.
On Friday show (March 2), Melber was talking about President Trump’s abuse of executive privilege in the White House when he delivered a classic line from Mobb Deep’s classic 1995 song “Shook Ones Part II.”
Coincidently, Havoc was watching the program and saluted Melber for mentioning the line.
"There’s no such thing as halfway privilege, just as there’s no such thing as halfway crooks," said Melber. "We know that truth from the great poet Havoc of Mobb Deep who observed that true criminal minds are always thirsty for recognition, but you don’t see longevity from halfway crooks, ‘cause they always end up shook. And that’s the big problem facing any White House pursuing a cover up with halfway privilege.”
"Just as I was watching the homie @arimelber couldn’t be put any better!! Ain’t no such thing as #halfwaycrooks," wrote Havoc on Instagram.
