The Coup :: Pick a Bigger WeaponEpitaph RecordsAuthor: Steve 'Flash' JuonWeapons hardly come much bigger than the one Boots wields. After all it was Ice-T who reminded us back in 1989 that the best "Lethal Weapon" was the one in your mind. Boots has been wielding that weapon like Triple H wields a sledgehammer, bashing people in the face repeatedly until they take the hint.
If you look hard enough at the cover of Pick a Bigger Weapon, you can see dangling legs through a hole in the wall of a ransacked Omnimart corporate office. DJ Pam "The Funkstress"' holds a bat, Boots Riley holds a pen, and bottles of a product called Ass-Breath Killer are on a desk and the ground. It's evident that this cover isn't likely to put them in hot water, like the original cover of Party Music did almost five years prior, unless someone prominent and silly finds the legs shocking.
