I often find myself in a quandry when it comes to rappers.
I know that they are "just" emcees.
However, I expect a lot from them, especially the ones that know better.
I also know that capitalism and power is seductive and that it is far more
convenient to make music that makes people dance
than to make music that makes them think.
Can you f*cking believe that there was a time when we had both?
These things came to mind while I was watching the new Wyclef video
and noticing the statistics about teen prostitution interspersed
Damned if he do, damned if it do, hunh?
What do you think about "political hip hop".
Should rappers be able to live
or do they have an obligation as artists to the public?
