    Never before have I heard of any level of government honoring a rapper. Huh? I wonder what they’re gonna do for Eminem. Oh and by the way, I missed Biggie, Jam Master Jay and Big L’s senatorial tributes.

      I totally agree… Yes he does deserve it but, unfortunately this sort of things helps breed segregation and distrust because anyone with a brain knows it’s because he’s Jewish, something which doesn’t bother any true hip hopper but clearly means everything to the senate!

      2012 and you only get shown respect if you’re white or Gay? Sad!
