Colbert Report: Nas Protests FOX, Performs New Anti-FOX Song: UPDATED

Hip hop star Nas joined forces with grassroots organization Color of Change and yesterday delivered over 620,000 petitions to FOX News, demanding an end to the daily on-air racism. Last night he joined Stephen to talk about the fight against FOX (particularly Bill O'Reilly, who Nas says is "scared") and performed the first single off his new untitled album, "Sly Fox."

I watch CBS, and I see B.S
Trying to track us down with GPS
Make a brotha want to invest in PBS

Digg It!

The sly Fox, cyclops
We locked in an idiot box
The video slots broadcast
The Waco Dividian plots
They own YouTube, MySpace
When this ignorant shit going to stop?
They monopolizing news
Your views
And the channel you choose
Propaganda, visual cancer
The eye in the sky, number 5 on the dial
Secret agenda, frequency antenna
Dr. Mindbender
Remote control soul
Your brain holder
Slave culture, game's over
What's a fox characteristic?
Slick shit, sensin', misinformation
Pimp the station, over-stimulation
Reception, deception
Comcast digital Satan
The Fox has a bushy tail
And Bush tells lies and foxtrots
So, I don't know what's real (what's real)

[ Chorus ]
Watch what you're watching
Fox keeps feeding us toxins
Stop sleeping
Start thinking outside of the box
And unplugg from the Matrix doctrine
But watch what you say,
Big Brother is watching

Watch what you're watching
Fox keeps feeding us toxins
Stop sleeping
Start thinking outside of the box
And unplugged from the Matrix doctrine
But watch what you say, Fox Five is watching

[ Nas ]
The Fear Factir that got you all riled up
O'Reilly? Oh really? No rally
needed, I'll tie you up
Network for child predators, setting them up
MySpace, pimps, hoes and sluts
[ Find more Lyrics at ]
Y'all exploit rap culture,
then y'all flip on us
And you own the Post, and y'all shit on us
What is their net worth?
They're going to try to censor my next verse
Throw them off the roof neck first
While I'm clicking my cursor
Reading blogs about pressure
they put on Universal
It gets worse
While I'm clicking my mouse
While they kickin my house
They figured us out
Why a nigga go south?
It's either he caught a body
Don't sleep, they're watching
I watch CBS, and I see BS
Trying to track us down with GPS
Make a nigga want to invest in PBS

[ Chorus ]

[ Nas ]
They say I'm all about murder
murder and kill kill
But what about Grindhouse and Kill Bill?
What about Cheney and Halliburton?
The back door deals on oil fields?
How is Nas the most violent person?
Y'all wouldn't know talent if it hit you
Bringing up my criminal
possession charges with a pistol
I use Viacom as my firearm
Then let the lyrics split you,
who do you rely upon?
Then shoot shells at Leviathon
I'm dealing with the higher form
Fuck if you care how I write a poem
Only fox that I loved was the red one
Only black man that Fox love is
in jail or a dead one
Red rum, political bedlam
Don't let the hype into
your eyes and ear drum
Murdoch own fox
Not A-Team with Baracus
And he hates Barack cuz he
march with the marches

[ Deep voice outro ]
I pledge allegiance to the
fair and balanced truth
Not the biased truth
Not the liar's truth
But the highest truth

I will not be deceived
Nor will I believe in the propaganda
I will not fall for the okie-doke
I am tuned in...

[ Nas ]
Watch because they're watching
Watch what you're watching

Better watch because they're watching
Watch what you're watching

M-m-media, misleading you
Watch what you're watching
