You a f*ggot but....

This. This. n*ggas trying to gain the white mans favour.
The fact that you equate speaking out against r*pe as somehow forsaking blackness and currying favor with "The white man" speaks VOLUMES about your character, or lackthereof

Rick Ross is a very misguided 40 year old but those lyrics are only a very small part of the reason why.
This. I don't think he owes anyone an apology, it's entertainment. None of the sh*t he says is true. sh*t Law and Order SVU is realer than Rick Ross.

our society don't condone r*pe but let a woman call r*pe and see how many call her a liar. but hold up, now rick ross is the villain, he said some sh*t about droppin somethin in a chicks drink and fu*kin! but wait, it's only entertainment right? wait wait, stop, he didn't even really mean it like that in the first place right? hold up, don't she deserve it cause she's dressed like that?


our society is a joke. our standards are a joke. our morality is a joke.

I'm done.
Our society doesn't outwardly condone r*pe, but subtly they kinda do. example...
*Movies, TV Shows where the chick CLEARLY doesn't look interested in a n*gga, he roughly snatch her a.ss up then it cut's to moaning and sh*t, stupid n*ggas gone think that's how chicks rock and end up with a r*pe charge.

No, don't get it twisted, Ross didn't just become the villain, he's been 1 of the many villain's or issues with rap music and hip-hop culture, it's just now that people wont come off as haters due to that r*pe line.

Bottom line is Ross rapped about r*pe, people called him on it, he back-peddled (terribly btw) and now (FINALLY!) Emcee's such as Talib has spoken out against him.

But this is the thing, Yes... Rap is suppose to be entertainment, but it is also a form of education.

A rapper is a poet and poetry has been utilized to teach for ages. "Conscious Rap" does utilize rap music very well in an educational way. but where the problem comes into play is when young kids who do not have proper parental guidance, fall's into the mind traps these rappers (like rick ross, and many others) set up. You see it on WSHH all the time, idiots thinking the street life is a good means of living and get hymed up.

I'm just happy that someone like Talib has spoken out against this wack rapper named Rick Ross.

and? he was spoken out against as well,

this isn't a race thing, Ross has been a Public Enemy in hip-hop eye's since the news broke of him lying about his law enforcement days. it's only now that he slipped and put the target on his back that people can say something without being seen as a hater.

do I think these people really are angry about r*pe? it's hard to say, but bottom line is Ross rapped about r*pe, now people speaking out.

I do agree that there is a fake sense of outrage, but once you start talking about negative things that happen to white girls, it's all bad. Not sure he even spit the lyrics, seeing as though, he shouldn't need to do a damn thing but breathe to get a chick.

However, I'm not sure how this differs from saying you gave a chick some drugs (molly, X, etc...) or you got her drunk...

Talib over Ross. The difference between the 2 is that the masses loves tails of death, drugs, and the underworld cause they will never be able to live that life. Talib spits real life ish.

Plus I just can't respect a man that takes another mans name, raps about another mans life. That's like you puttin on another mans draws!

Em my fav rapper and talked about r*pe all the damn time. He had protests against him and sh*t but I swear the way they blowing up that mediocre a.ss line from Ross is ridiculous. Only thing I can think of is cause that sh*t in Ohio that just happened, but even still the line ain't that fu*king bad compared to the other lyrics from rappers we've heard.
