    Dont rate this video if you are bias to hip hop. I dont need any bullshit ratings from ppl who cant get past that simple fact. If you don't like it dont watch it. HOWEVER, if you wanna see somthing unique and different watch the video.

    Wow it took me this long to finally put up another amv. Well this project really started in January and I really couldnt get into it untill recently...after I got fired from my job. Since my schedual then was work, school, sleep, there was really no time to work on amvs. This whole period has been interesting. Not only did i lose my job, but I also got into 2 accidents, a ticket, and a girlfriend, which is sometimes a plus and minus.

    This is my first time ever accually playing with masks and such, I still dont know what im doing but I tryed my best and gave it my all. I must say, that made making the video 3x as long, along with the lip sync. My hardest video that I have made to date.

    Well this is a Trigun Drama amv. Yea yea yea and I know...but this isnt your ordinary run of the mill drama amv.

    1. There are not too many amvs using hip hop, and if there are its not enough of good ones. I can only name one good hip hop amv of the back of my hand, and that is the push to peace by dnk.

    2. For it being a drama amv it has a very weird feel to it, just watch and you'll see.

    One other thing I tryed to convert it to divx, mov and I've crashed vegas, MULTIPLE TIMES. I converted it to mpg2 with success, however the file size is 118mb. Since vegas has a good wmv converter, once again I am using it. So if u hate wmv files so what, I had to do what I had to do. Also this song doesn't have strong lyrics or is going to offend anyone.

    Anyway here are the lyrics taken from ohhla.com:

    [Intro: 2Pac]
    Black Cotton
    Black Cotton
    Black Cotton - A symbol for unrewarded struggle
    Time for a little gospel tail
    Ghetto gospel that is- listen
    Robbin' Black Cotton in God's eyes
    Speak

    [Verse One: 2Pac]
    Black Cotton
    Steady stressin' Smith and Wessons count my blessin's
    Class is in session the worst question is the first question
    Why do we work like slaves sweatin' blades to an early grave
    Never got paid but still we slave (In the nine tre')
    Answer that then answer this too-
    Loves gonna get ya you know it's true life's a bitch true
    You best to backtrack and try to act black and live
    Not to be phony and positive but why be negative?
    What's the matter G? Black cat got your tongue
    Fat track gotcha sprung now your hung (Do ya feel me?)
    Dum dum diddy is it me?
    Attempt to reach each and every brother on the streets
    If not peace then at least let's get a piece
    I'm tired of seeing bodies on the streets- deceased
    Lookin' through my highschool yearbook
    Reminiscin' of the tears as the years took
    One homie, two homie, three homies - POOF
    We used to have troops but now there's no more youth to shoot
    God come save the misbegotten
    Lost ghetto souls of Black Cotton (In God's eyes)

    [Chorus: Eminem]
    Nobody don't care
    (No matter how hard I try/Look to the sky/--?)
    Nobody don't care
    (Seems like my dreams/Drowned in by screams/No answer to my questions)
    Nobody don't care
    (Feels like I'm pressed/Why do I stress?/It's like I'm being tested)
    Nobody don't care
    (Seems like my prayers/Vanish to thin air/Please answer my questions)
    Nobody don't care

    [Kastro: Verse Two]
    In the belly of the beast I'm bubbling up
    Running out of luck, about to self destruct
    Old heads say live your life like such
    Your sure to catch her witcha one day boy
    I wouldn't listen to 'em
    Your power movement was cool
    But it ain't fix nothin'
    So I just go with what I know
    I don't trust none
    Look what the 80's did
    To what's Bebe's kids
    And now we grown up
    Nobody ain't own us yet

    [Young Noble: Verse Three]
    Black cotton, I'm plottin' --
    I'm workin' without a profit
    They shacklin' all my homies
    I'm hurtin' but keep the mind
    we urkin em' try to stop us is curtins you try to rise and
    certainly we survive with Outlaw Ridas
    What's the reward for a strugala
    If the lord lovin' us then why they hate to see us comin' up
    Runnin up, Gun cocked black mask and gloves
    If you ain't got it, pay me mind in blood
    No love
    Waitin' for my 40 acas and a blunt to blaze
    Biblicle times good hearts with militant minds
    For Black Cotton - I'm hoppin' over enemy lines
    For Black Cotton - I ain't stoppin' till they givin me mine
    Black Cotton

    [Chorus repeat 2x]

    Nobody don't care
    (No matter how hard I try/Look to the sky/--?)
    Nobody don't care
    (Seems like my dreams/Drowned in by screams/No answer to my questions)
    Nobody don't care
    (Feels like I'm pressed/Why do I stress?/It's like I'm being tested)
    Nobody don't care
    (Seems like my prayers/Vanish to thin air/Please answer my questions)
    Nobody don't care

    Like the song says,this is a symbol for unrewarded struggle. In Vash and co's case, they didnt really get what they wanted till the end of the amv. Even so Vash still got to walk off into the sunset. In my case(or everone who uses hip hops case), we struggle for good ops all the time because everone else is only bias to their own favorite music. No one really is open to seeing the light of anyone elses style and its annoying to see someone getting wack ass ops because of what type of music it is.


    But anyway here it is another unique combo, Trigun and Tupac. Try to figure out what black cotton means for yourself, amd how you can relate to this.
