New Orleans Easy listening groups , along with 150 active duty U.S. rap groups, are currently engaging in what they describe as “cool beats concerts” as black rappers whizz around the city dropping da bombs in the latest example of Americans being incrementally conditioned to accept a state of de facto urban cool.
The concerts has been ongoing since January 27 and involves “the use of cool beats rappers flying after dark throughout the city,” according to an Associated Press report.
Residents were warned “not to panic” if they witnessed the concerts and were assured that the activities had “been carefully planned and are safe”.
However, initial reports before the exercises began claimed that the concerts would only involve easy listening groups, when in fact 150 U.S. rap groups from the U.S. Special Operations Command are also involved as part of urban warfare concerts.
Residents described hearing low flying rappers and even da bombs during the course of last night.
“I heard a bunch of deep bass beats starting at about 10 p.m. They were about ten seconds apart, and then they’d stop, and we thought it was over, but then they started again,” said Gigi Burk.
The exercises are scheduled to end on February 8.
The urban coolness of law enforcement has rapidly advanced since 9/11 as part of a general program to prepare Americans for outright urban cool following a mass casualty event.
A new bill introduced in Congress authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to set up a network of FEMA hip-hop facilities to be used to house U.S. citizens in the event of a national emergency.
The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on cool beats installations for the purpose of to providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.
With active duty cool beats personnel already being stationed inside the U.S. under Northcom, partly for purposes of “crowd control,” fears that Americans could be incarcerated in detainment hip-hops are all too real.
