Explicit Lyrics no more?

Saw the Rev Al Sharpton saying they want an end to the "n" word in music. He also added that its not "black culture" but "thug culture"??? They are planning on several rallies to get their message out. I for one think that rap music would suck without all the references to drugs, violence, sex, gold teeth, jewelry, alcohol, ect.

Well if Al Sharpton says so, I guess we should all listen.

he's probably tired of anyone that opposes him using references to the word nigga/nigger in rap music against him, there really isn't a defense against it

I predict a black vs. black civil war over rap lyrics in the near future. Then the Dems will pull out support of Sharpton when they can't find Snoop Dogg's stash.

Yeah, I like older rap and some new stuff, but some of it, shit...alot of it now, seems to be unintelligible gibberish.

It seems like popular black music has really evolved backwards in the last 40 years.

I think the same thing can be said for many types of music. I think it stems from record companies trying to sell a product, sell a look, sell a style, and putting all of that ahead of the substance.

I agree. Today's music makes me angry that I have to work a full-time job. Obviously there is no talent needed today, they make millions for two or three years (seems to be the life span of any "talent" these days)

Sharpton has been getting heat for going after imus and not taking exception to other uses of ghetto slang. Hannity and Sharpton had a live debate and from the part I heard it sounded like Hannity hammered him pretty good about his double standard. We'll see if Sharpton stays the course or is exposed as the hypocrite that he seems to be. I believe this pressure is the ONLY reason he's talking about taking action in this area.

Steve got it right about the crap that passes for music in some communities.

You sure about that? Unless your ancestors were royalty, odds are someone in your lineage has been either a peasant or an indentured servant at some point in time. White people were sold as slaves long before Africans were.

that whole 'you oppressed my ancestors' is such bullshit. What a joke. They only use that when affirmitive action doesn't play. The whole minority oppression crap is a joke and should the word 'nigger' be banned from rap lyrics, all rap will implode and fall into the pacific ocean, because they can't rap about anything intelligent to begin with. They had a black comedian on hannity and colmes talking about the use of the word and basically he said that they 'had to use language to survive when they were growing up'...... and 'you were looked down on if you use words longer than 5 letters'.........The whole 'gangsta' subculture is a sad excuse for part of the human race. And what's even more hilarious are the white kids that try to act black. It's all a big joke. Sharpton is only doing it to gain popularity and he is going to crash and burn

With any sort of music these days, you need to go underground to find the quality stuff. Hip hop has some great underground acts - most on the Definitive Jux label are sure to please.

The new El-P is most definitely going to be in my top 10 albums of the year list.

No what I actually said is that the rap tap has run dry. There hasnt been talent in hip-hop/rap for almost a decade now. No one writes their own songs, makes their own beats, has any beef wars, callabo's good. Now its all about who has the most money and who can flaunt it the most, not like it used to be. It used to tell stories, and the people used to have fun about it. Now its all PLAIN corporate.

Did anyone else see the interview with Jesse Jackson where he blamed the Rolling Stones for woman bashing in music? It's not the black rappers who call girls ho's and tell them to suck their dick, but it's the white rockers fault for using the word "bitch" in a song.

I swear to god that Jessie Jackson is the most racist motherfucker in pop culture today.

...and he looks like a goddamned bug.

Mr. Sharpton needs to leave it alone. I actually enjoy listening to hardcore gangster rap, for some reason it creates a sense of peace with in (maybe because I'm white??)

Look at how a lot of the thug rappers hammer the civil rights icons of old, if Sharpton thinks he will get anywhere, he won't. Blacks don't suffer from white guilt and will gladly say 'Fuck yo' couch nigga' without ever feeling a bit of hesitantcy, which is good. Imus' biggest mistake (other than saying a bad line) was meeting with Sharpton and giving him the slightest of credibility.

Rap on.

They also have a part in their song "Some Girl" where Mick Jagger sings "Black girls just want to get fucked all night."
