Steve Jobs Rap Tribute Video [NSFW]

Here’s the video to that “Steve Jobs” rap song that hit the Internets last month.

It’s got a few things that might not be safe for work – mainly rapper Supreme General  who wrote and performs the song in various states of undress with obligatory crotch grabbing and too many obscenities to count. (Not that I didn’t try to count the obscenities – I’m like that.)

But it’s got that awesome  copyright-disputed silhouette of Steve in the opening and Supreme General does regale us with a shot of himself brandishing an iPhone. So there’s that.

And the pertinent lines (at the very end):

“That’s why it never bothers me when niggas copy all my moves….

My competition’s hollow, my products set the standards for the rest of y’all to follow.

Steve Jobs.”

Kind of a nice break from the hagiographic approach. Jobs might have appreciated that.

You can download the song here.

  • prof_peabody

    Steve Jobs was a genius with music among other things and had such great taste that he personally picked the songs that went on some of the iPod commercials, and … 

    … Steve Jobs didn’t like rap.  

  • Alberto Hernandez

    This song has nothing to do with Steve Jobs or Apple… Why do you keep posting it?

  • riverak

    This sux. The rap is an embarrassment to hip-hop and an insult to suggest it has anything to do w/memory of SJ.

  • Anthony M Perez

    What does anything in this video have to do with Steve and Apple? The logo tribute in the start of the video?

    Really? A “rapper”??? OMG. This is seriously a supreme Cleveland steamer.

  • Evan Benford

    Terrible rap…take this down plzzzz

    By what twisted definition is this a “tribute” to Steve Jobs? 

  • cliqsquad

    Because like every genre of music, the majority of rappers sold out in the early 2k’s and sound exactly the same. I blame the “Yeah…” on  the dirty south rise in rap music. I barely listen to what can be considered new music because most of it just sucks today, its all lost meaning, replaced by cheap gimmicks and copy cat acts that follow a formula to success. 

  • MetaChimp

    AWFUL!  What are you thinking?  This has nothing to do with Apple or Steve Jobs…. it’s just an ignorant and arrogant song over an uninspired track featuring braggadocio and pointless vulgarity.  For the sake of your good name, take it down!

  • Johncocktoasden

    My god…thats one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard….and I’m quite sure Steve Jobs would concur. The only good part was the very last line. Otherwise, total crap, and I listen to hip-hop.

  • Stephen James

    Are you serious??? Did you listen to this before posting this cRAP? What a load of bollocks.

  • Supreme General

    Ok! I wasn’t going to say anything before but after reading the slew of needless hate on my song, I feel the need to defend myself. 1st point, I thought it’d be obvious considering it was featured on this very site well before he passed but the song is a poetic juxtopostion between myself & Mr. Jobs NOT a tribute song!!! More specifically, it’s a personified double entendre, with myself at the center & tied together through our mutual love 4 putting our hearts into & innovating our respective fields! 4 those who don’t know, that means if Steve were a rapper he would’ve approached it the same way I do & vice versa if I were a programmer as we both share the same views on innovation & pushing things 4ward. Hence the line: “Substance permeates thru me, my competitions hollow… And my products set the standard for the rest of y’all to follow!!!”. There are many others throughout the song that show the same correlation but assuming your not a fan of hip hop (& you simply can’t be if you think the song isn’t good!) you wouldn’t care to find them anyway! 2nd even if you don’t like it, all you can do is respect the fact that I respect this man enough to make a song praising his greatness! I know most rappers give you the impression that we’re all dumb , but I strongly admonish you 2 NOT place me with those guys, as my lyrics *Cursing Included* obviously put me on a different level.. But then again… You probably don’t like rap & wouldn’t understand anyway smh

  • Supreme General

    Why the hate?

  • Supreme General

    To put it simply & eloquently… Your an Asshole!!! …that is all

  • MetaChimp

    Oh yes, your eloquence is astounding.  I am speechless.

  • MetaChimp

    Here is a word for the wise: great men do not proclaim their own
    greatness, because they have nothing to prove.  They are simply who they
    are, and their greatness becomes self evident, and is then acknowledged
    by others.

    Since you seem to want to talk about it, this is some honest feedback from a fan of hip-hop and rap.  I am part of your would-be audience, so don’t dismiss me as a ‘hater’ who ‘doesn’t get it’.  I am a fan, and this song isn’t good. 

    I look for excellence and artistic honesty.  And let’s be real here: this song has NOTHING to do with the greatness of Steve Jobs.  It is ALL ABOUT YOU.  It’s simply about YOUR alleged greatness.  It references a great man, then says “Oh yeah, and I’m great too”.  Go ahead and throw Obama, Jay-Z, Einstein and Descartes in the title of your song.  If they are great, then you must be great too.
