Yes.... The Rhythm, The Rebel

This post has very little to do with Chuck D or Public Enemy (who I believe I've already listed as one of the reasons why TWNR), other than the fact that a lyric from Rebel Without A Pause off their classic It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back album sparked an interesting thought:

"I'll throw it down your throat like Barkley."

Now, back when this song was cut, Sir Charles was swinging from rings in Philly and making a name for himself as one of the best power forwards the game of basketball has ever seen. So the lyric clearly references his ferocious dunking technique.

But in light of more recent events, it takes on a whole new light.
