my girl Sinead... still teaching ppl the universal truths...

she completely stereotyped all rap music tho, so she lost for that...

she also a.sserted that 90% of the people that live in America are "wonderful"... lol, uhhh, yeah, nope Sinead...

once again, an artist has their heart in the right place to say something about something, but uses the wrong metaphors and analogies to do so and even throws in a blanket staetment for good measure...

Don't be guided by rap. Gangsta or otherwise. Sure.. enjoy it.. adore it.as I do.. but realize this.. rap ain't about your civil or spiritual rights, baby boys and girls. It.. along with most music nowadays.. is about falsenesses and vanities. Bling, drugs, s3x, guns and people- dissing. Its giving you the message you ain't 'good enough' if you don't have bling and ting.. and money. Or if you're not what it deems 's3xy'.

Forget bling. Forget "Get Rich Or Die Trying". That is an evil message. Evil my dears is only life backwards.

This is some serious stuff and we (all manner of musical artists) are too silent on matters of enormous spiritual importance. Lemme ask you.. Jayzee and Eminem et al. Why was it always the black people only worked in the post rooms of record companies, which was always in the basement? Why was it that as each floor went up the skins got paler till it was fu-kin ghosts at the top? And all us artists.. even me.. said nothing? Those buildings (record companies) always struck me as being a microcosm or painting of America, racially speaking. Christ almighty.. if its like that in the music business how is anything ever going to change?
Shots fired

Let's see what rappers and Curtis (not Mayfield) say about this...if they even care about her words at all

Forget bling. Forget "Get Rich Or Die Trying". That is an evil message. Evil my dears is only life backwards. Turn it the right way up. With music. The messages American black youth are being given through music are not about the spiritual and therefore strong and conquering but PEACEFUL making of YOUR country into the wonderful place it secretly is and can be.. BECAUSE OF YOU, and BY YOU!!

All her points are on point. Especially what she says about popular music genres.

Still though, many will tune this out. Doesn't matter if you enjoy her contribution to music or not. Doesn't matter what you thought about what she did on SNL with the Pope's photo. Don't be a buffoon and try to slander the messenger.

Wish she'd write a book on her life experiences, perspective, and overall view of the world over the years.

The day Wayne speaks on this, I'll send everyone on BX a $5 PayPal. Real recognize real and we'll know how real our favorite rappers are with this unfortunate situation (IMO).

P.S. I know they're alot of racist, butt hurt people on here that might have a probelm with what I said. If that's the case do the following:

Put on Ralph Tresvant's "Sensitivity" on full blast while proceeding to stabb yourself in your disgusting stomach 20 times.
