The Clipse and McDonalds Collaborate on the COKESPOON Project

Cocaine Re-Up Anthem (Nick Catchdubs Remix) - The Clipse
Cocaine in My Brain - Dillinger
Cocaine - Eric Clapton
Cocaine Blues - Johnny Cash
We Got the Remix - The Clipse (Biochemical Slang Re-Up)

I'll be honest with you. The title of this post was merely the bait to get you to read this. How we all wish it were true. When you break it down, how different are the Clipse from McDonald's? They both slang addictive products. They both got it for cheap. They both are loved by white and black alike. They both come with major hipster credits.

Anyhow. Back to the subject at hand. Do you remember back in the day when McDonald's made little spoons to stir your coffee? Not only did they stir your coffee, they were perfect for puttin' that coke up in your nose. The suits at McD's got wind of the street usage of their product and promptly replaced 'em with standard coffee stirrers.

Believe it or not, you can buy these vintage stirrers on Ebay. We here in America STAY on our grind.

Fast forward to the present, "artists" were gold-plating and selling replica McD's coke spoons for $295. It turns out, McDonald's wasn't too happy and pulled the old cease-and-desist. According to McD lawyer-speak,
"There is an element of trust between McDonald's and our customers in what those trademarks and other representations of the brand mean. Any dilution of that, or any association without McDonald's approval to third parties, entities or objects, is an erosion of that trust that we have with our customers."

Sure. Give McD's the big eff you by orderin' yourself a ghetto big mac. Anything to cure us of the MONDAY BLUES.

I'm so grateful that you posted the Clipse remix album. However, many of the tracks didn't format correctly and can't be played when unzipped. Any chance of a re-up? Thanks!
