Lightly Burnin’ – a rapper-style ode to the Second Amendment

Funny what gets into your head, sometimes.  Personally, I blame “Weird Al” Yankovic.  🙂

The Bill of Rights

A few days ago, the idea occurred to me to do this rap song.  While it was inspired by a really funny parody, the subject here is actually pretty serious.  We’re having a midterm Congressional election tomorrow, and while the 2A isn’t the only thing we must consider, I’d say it’s up there, right along with the rest of the Constitution.

The goal here was to try to sound like the rappers do.  I’m a beginner with sound processing, but it seems to have turned out pretty decently.

I hope you enjoy it.  I call it, “Lightly Burnin’.”  Lyrics are located here.

With all apologies to both Chamillionaire and Weird Al, the latter of whose parody of “Ridin’ (Dirty)” (called “White & Nerdy”) was the inspiration for this.

No, I’m not making any money off of this, so I firmly believe this falls under the “Fair Use” doctrine.
