MTV News reported "It's a completely different scenario," said Snoop, barking over the phone from a hotel room in L.A. "[Rappers] are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We're talking about ho's that's in the 'hood that ain't doing sh--, that's trying to get a n---a for his money. These are two separate things.
Snoop is right. What he and the rappers are saying is much worse than what Imus said, and what Imus said is stupid. But black children do not look up to Imus; they do look up to rappers like Snoop, and that is why the rappers should be much better role modles.First of all, we ain't no old-ass white men that sit up on MSNBC [which announced Wednesday it would drop its simulcast of Imus' radio show] going hard on black girls. We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel. I will not let them mutha----as say we in the same league as him."
You are not in his league. As despicable as he may be, he is in higher league than you are.
