Sometimes.... Such as Biz Markie
And sometimes not.... Such as Public Enemy
Hip-Hop is a complex genre that incorporates a variety of styles and ideas... strange I know.
Also, why can't I get embedding videos to work. I feel so dumb.

Ah, the tune that had an entire nation (if not the world) giddily proclaiming their approval of discreet, short-term infidelity.
I suspect that the vast majority thought O.P.P was just some sort of super-cute, funtimes street gang... On the other hand, Clinton was elected the following year, so maybe everyone was down...

A very serious song by a typically unserious (self-aware and sarcastic) group, featuring a brilliantly executed extended dishwashing metaphor that is simultaneously silly and despairing. A lot of hip hop acts from this era were capable of showing two faces, frequently at once (the balancing act between Chuck D and Flavor Flav of PE is a great example).

i don't think it's you. Discourse embeds links or not seemingly at random. grrrr @sam @codinghorror

There is a method to our madness, see:
One very cool feature Discourse has is "oneboxing". If you include a link to your favourite site, it will try to create a usable snippet for you automatically. For example: paste the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spite_house on a line by itself and you will see a nice onebox from Wikipedia Some samples: How do you spoiler an image or onebox? feature I can spoiler text as follows: [ spoiler]You might not want to know this![/spoiler] You might not want to kno...
To create a onebox, be sure the link is on a line all by itself

The other thing to watch out for is YouTube videos with embedding disabled. Not that uncommon.
But in general the principle is, place the link on a line by itself. That is all, no special magic.

I think I understand... Thanks!

What I don't get is why there is Israeli Soccer Fanatics graffiti on this video
One State For One Nation-Israel
Maccabi Tel Aviv
Especially since the official policy of Israel is to deny entrance & expel all Africans trying to enter Israel as refugees http://youtu.be/fiOJ6lrX0zY http://youtu.be/O9mkSdlgAP0
