1. Sh*t Rappers Tweet: Chuck D on the Negative Impact of "N*ggas In Paris."

    SRT_Chuck_D_Niggas_in_Paris

    Currently out in France with Public Enemy on the group's latest world tour, the great Chuck D / @MrChuckD took to the Twitter earlier today to get some matters off his mind. Specifically: how the whole "N*ggas In Paris" phenomenon is kinda sad and effed up, if you think about it. Breaking down causes and effects like you knew he would, Mistachuck's (thankfully) still that rebel without a pause. Clear the way for the tweets of rage...




  2. You might wanna peep...

      What does that last one mean? About Flav?

    • Ri067953

      It means flav is the stereotypical nigga

    • bboycult

      ....and that is how an Earthizen of African decent should live yo; upright! I absolutely bow down to how freeform and honest that last quote is man, straight up/down! " They see Flav but they also see 12othrs " The Man (as in Miss Mullins) will not divide us; but he will god damned respect us.

      Why is Chuck-D defending Kayne West and Jay-Z?...they made the song with that title...no one else, if Chuck is going to go all out on the industry then getting rid of those 2 would be a great start.

      Because getting rappers to attack each other leaves the equally (or even more) complicit label executives without their share of the blame. No label exec would let Jay and Ye release a song call (N----s Robbing Wall Street) encouraging poor people in New York to go downtown en masse and rob the Wall Street brokers that robbed the whole world. Those same execs have no problem with glamorizing overconsumption and promoting the n-word.

      Come on, the execs are in it for the money, so yes, they're happy to endorse any message no matter how damaging as long as it shifts units, so they're complicit in the problem. But ultimately the people responsible for writing the lyrics are Jay and Ye themselves, and they write the lyrics they do containing the messages they promote because it benefits them to do so. Pointing the finger at record execs and trying to shift responsibility onto them is spineless.

      @Spirit Equality: "(N—-s Robbing Wall Street) encouraging poor people in New York to go downtown en masse and rob the Wall Street brokers that robbed the whole world."
      Excellent. This is the type of message that should be more prevalent in rap music. I mean there's always a few rappers here or there that talk real shit but not enough. There needs to be real leadership among the lower and lower middle class.
