he was tryin to make a statement to those that think he sold out. it was definately a hidden message.
he's felt that hate from critics for a few years now. alot of the critics forget how "Hip Hop" he was when he started out, before Fergie and even before Black Eyed Peas. Shame he had to go to such lengths...

People are overracting. He wasnt immitating blackface, he dyed himself black to match his outfit. Notice that he's trying to do all black everything head to toe. If he had worn a green outfit he probably would have dyed his face green, if he was wearing red he probably would have dyed his face red, etc etc. Nonetheless, he looks pretty f**king stupid.

No education has "set" black people back? No, it has "kept" black people back.

When we say that something has "set black people back," we mean that it has undone the progress that has already been made.

Like his minstrel show bulls**t.

To compare this to schools is idiotic, because it's not like black people EVER had equal educational opportunities.

But what else should we expect from Will? He is easily one of the biggest sellouts in rap history, dude went from being an underground bboyer to shuckin for white 14 year olds, making music they play on radio Disney

GTFO with your preaching. Yall reaching too far. This s**t had nothing to do with blackface. These tightwad activists always have to find SOMETHING racially offensive about everything. s**t is annoying now. Sure, he looks ridiculous but thats his right.

Also on the sellout tip, if white folks was giving you big checks, you'd sellout too. Fukk music, dude makin money!
