    It's fair it's just a dumb commercial that's not funny so that's the foul part

    This is hilarious. And to be fair, it's mostly just playing on the idea of adding the 'Five Grains' to their yogurt or pudding or rice or whatever, and appealing to young people by using Luniz.

    I think to really be mad about it, you'd probably have to ask blacks in the UK, since this is a product being sold in the UK by a German company.

    The 'Five Grains' btw, have a fascinating position in Chinese history:

    The sense of holiness or sacredness regarding the Five Grains proceeds from their traditional ascription to the saintly rulers credited for creating China's civilization. They were seen not merely as five crops chosen from many options but as the source permitting agrarian society and civilization itself. "Squandering the Five Grains" was seen as a sin worthy of torment in Diyu, the Chinese hell.

    As the position of emperor was seen as an embodiment of this society, one's behavior towards the Five Grains could take on political meaning: as a protest against the overthrow of the Shang Dynasty by the Zhou, Boyi and Shuqi ostentatiously refused to eat the Five Grains. Such rejections of the grains for political reasons underwent a complex development into the concept of bigu, the esoteric Taoist practice of achieving immortality by avoiding certain foods.


    Oh, and if you're gonna be mad, be mad at the Chief Marketing Officer, Michael Inpong. This guy:

    Met Yukmouth back in 2010, he told me that they dont get royalties for I got 5 on it or the first album.

    Only show money. They didn't get a penny for the record sales either.

    He was 17-16 when he signed the contract and didn't read it. One of the first ones to get ? by the industry.

    one of the first???

    "We had a ? up contract but we signed it/and dropped the hip-hop album Criminal Minded" - KRS-ONE

    a lot of cats from the 80's ain't gettin nary a dime from their early work.

    also worth mentioning that if they didn't recoup the money the label sank into the project then it makes sense that they didn't see a dime for it. The prolly signed over their publishing rights for the record too.

    The contract literally stated that they will only get paid for shows. And they will only get like 20 percent or something.

    They never read it until the album dropped smh.

    Yuk could've been caking on that song his entire life like some one hit wonders do.

    I just wanna know who was in the board room like "lets go with the Tupac flow....hell yeah"

    all 40-50-something year old white folks love Pac. That was targeted marketing at it's finest.
