In honor of today's release of Tha Carter IV, and the lucky fact that we had a president with the same name who posed for an inordinate amount of hilarious photos, TC39's a new Tumblr that matches Weezy lyrics to said snaps, courtesy of a local music journalist who kind of knows Rudy from The Cosby Show, and whose resume includes stints at LaFace Records and So So Def, although even he would admit that such experience does not make his opinions Jermaine. Examples include:
A snap of the USS Jimmy Carter, a nuclear submarine that’s only slightly larger than his oil crisis: “The only thing on the mind of a shark is eat/and by any means, you’re just a sardine”.
This one finds the Carters at a gala with with his eventual successor Ronald Reagan, who actually changed his name from “Ray-Gun” before getting into politics, because it didn’t poll well in states that love aliens. True story.: "Yessir they can’t stop me/even if they stopped me/Ha, ha ha! Yeah..."
Jimmy on a jog, wearing a stylish track jacket, and a not-stylish pair of what appear to be the world’s first pleated running shorts: “I’m running this bitch/like Eric Bieniemy back”.
A shot of Carter at a ball game in Cuba, about to throw out the first pitch and conversing with a capped-up Castro, making him the first president to be able to compliment Fidel’s beard in person: “Try and run me into a wall outfielder”.
