Rap mogul Russell Simmons’ interview with CNN’s Don Lemon was taped today but doesn’t air until Saturday. Presumably the two hashed out their differences over black culture, which got ugly when Simmons called Lemon a “slave” for urging black youth to pull up their pants and stay in school. In the meantime, R&B singer and woman-beater Chris Brown has weighed in with his own indictment of modern rap, saying it makes him sick.
We’re fine with less “gansta” in our hip hop. Pair that with some respect for women in real life and we’re on to something. What do you think, Twitter?
Brown does seem to have started an online debate — over the meaning of “boof.”
Stop wearing your grandmother’s curtains while you’re at it.
Yeah, about that…
