PS3 Hacker Tells Sony How He Really Feels

Remember when George Hotz, aka "GeoHot", appeared on television? He sounded so intelligent and well-composed, and Sony's lawsuit just seemed unwarranted. Now, Hotz doesn't nearly sound as well-composed, but rather NSFW and petulant. Well, at least he's got flow and rhymes.

George Hotz, along with the failoverflow team, cracked the PS3 open. He is currently being taken to court by Sony. "The way piracy was previously done [on PS3] doesn't work in my jailbreak", he told G4. "I made a specific effort while I was working on this to try to enable homebrew without enabling things I do not support, like piracy."


Hotz posted a new video on his YouTube site in which he directs his venom at Sony in rap form, telling the electronics giant, "You're fucking with the dude who got the keys to your safe" and calling them "fudgepackers". Hotz namechecks Lik Sang, and then says, "I'm a personification of freedom for all." Hotz then dares them to exhibit this video in the courtroom. This video is apparently for a "Light It Up" rap contest. But with Hotz being on trial, it doesn't matter what it's for. Whatever he says or does publicly can possibly come into play during the lawsuit.


Here are the full lyrics:

Yo it's geohot
And for those that don't know
I'm getting sued by Sony

Let's take this out of the courtroom and into the streets
I'm a beast, at the least, you'll face me in the northeast
Get my ire up, light my fire
I'll go harder than Eminem went at Mariah
Call me a liar
Pound me in the ass with no lube, chafing
You're fucking with the dude who got the keys to your safe and
Those that can't do bring suits
Cry to your Uncle Sam to settle disputes
Thought you'd tackle this with a little more tact
But then again fudgepackers, I don't know Jack

I shed a tear everytime I think of Lik Sang
But shit man, they're a corporation
And I'm a personification of freedom for all
You fill dockets, like thats a concept foreign to y'all
While lawyers muddy water and TROs stall
Out of business is jail for me
And you're suing me civilly

Exhibit this in the courtroom
Go on, do it, I dare you

Your move, Sony.

Congratulations Brian! You just wrote a tabloid article. You know this is a submission by Hotz to the light it up rapping contest, yet you deliberately leave out certain facts to make it a controversial article in order to drum up more views.

For shame, Brian. For shame.

Included is the video detailing said contest. At least someone can provide the facts in here.

Looks like the video won't attach, so I guess I'll just provide a link.
