Z List Rappers Burn A Hundred Thousand Dollars

by Minority Fortune

We were recently alerted to this Grade F action executed by Grade F simpletons from fellow supporter @jholmes0001 on Twitter. As unfortunate as this particular action is, there are lessons to be learned from it. Be warned, this video just may cause you to weep for humanity:

If you had access to money that you didn’t need (which we’ve never heard billionaires say such a thing), what would you do with it? Well some genius rappers by the name of Jon Geezy & Parlae thought it would be a brilliant idea to not only burn a hundred thousand dollars but place the clip online for the world to witness. It’s a sad day in America when there are clips like these in existence.

Congrats, guys. You’ve committed a visible crime! Since only one you were part of a rap group that had all of two hits with meager royalties to split amongst yourselves, we also question how you’ve attained such money. For a person with a hit or two under their belt, there’s no way they’d shun $100,000. We suspect *cough* drug money *cough*. There’s no denying that you’ve defaced the US Treasury’s money, which is a crime. Title 18, Section 333 of the United States code states the following:

Whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, Federal Reserve Bank, or Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued, shall be fined not more than $100 or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

Dear Z-List Drug Dealers “Rappers”,

Since your faces are well within view, we hope you have earned a first-class ticket to jail. You’ve also violated Minority Fortune’s threshold for stupidity, which you should be rightfully charged for additionally. While you’re entitled to spend your money in any way that you please, burning it for YouTube has to be the dumbest idea possible. Even if you consider it a low budget marketing expense to gross the buzz of social media, you could have done 2,000,000 other things with it that would have made you look much better. Did we mention that what you did was illegal yet?

When you come across another two dollars or hundred thousand, please be smarter. We question your right to even hold legal tender in your hands, but we know that money will come and go through your hands. If only money could file restraining orders, the world would be a better place. Next time, consider the well-being of others. We’re certain you grew up in an area where children and families are in need of food, clothing, scholarships, home repairs, etc. We’re certain that you’re aware of the plight of starving children and people around the US, Haiti, Gaza, Sudan, Nepal, and many, many others. Instead of doing anything for anyone, you burned the money. What about starting a trust fund for your children? What about starting a business? What about taking an international trip? What about starting a retirement fund? Did any of this enter your minds? Who are we kidding here?!

What’s most disturbing of all is that in order to garner a bit of buzz for yourself, you turned your back on your community and fellow brethren. Instead of aiding someone or growing the money for a bigger cause, you burned it to garner a tad bit of social status amongst your negative Z-list rappers and hardly-wealthy friends. Therefore, we hope that action haunts you for the rest of your life the next time when your children seek to go to college or when you’re bankrupt.
