Tone Def Poetry Jam - Lyrics Controversy - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - 05/11/11 - Video Clip | Comedy Central
I'm with Stewart on this one. Some conservatives are so desperate to bash this president they'd rather just lie and act offended at lyrics that they wouldn't even blink an eye at if it were a conservative saying.
It's sad and pathetic.
I listened to the three talking heads - Rush, Hannity and Levin (guest host yesterday anyway) talk about this and my first thought was have they ever listened to any of his music besides the one or two songs they derailed in each show segment?
Then I thought, "what a contradiction...the defenders of freedom of speech and liberty denoucing an music entertainer and they don't even know what peotry he's going to read." I've listened to some of Common's music; believe me I've heard worse.
Why do so many people not understand music?

So, not all rap music is bad. Most of it is very insightful. Frankly speaking, rap music today is what hard rock-N-roll was yesterday - the new battle cry for what the youth of today view as problems facing many of us today. But like hard rock, rap music does have it's dark and sinister side. You just have to weed out the bad and try to find the good. Regardless, music is free speech on the grandest of scales and rap music (second only to country music, IMHO) tells the greatest stories on life and love beyond all other genre of music.
