(AllHipHop News) The name Star has become synonymous with controversial statements in Hip Hop circles. The outspoken radio personality has spent his career voicing his unabashed opinions on relevant subjects in the culture. In a 2014 interview recently uploaded to YouTube, the Shot 97 host provided his thoughts on the National Action Network’s Al Sharpton and Brooklyn emcee Talib Kweli.
“Rev. Al Sharpton is a great man. I can vouch for him personally,” stated Star with Forbz DVD. “I know him to be a credible human being… We’re talking about a man who is genuinely concerned.”
Star goes on to add that he does not agree with everything Sharpton has done in the past. His comments on Kweli. were not as positive though.
“We’ve got bullsh**t n***s out here like Talib Kweli who don’t vote. F**k just voting for the president, he doesn’t vote on the local level, he doesn’t vote by way of schools. He doesn’t vote. That’s some f**kery,” said Star. “Let’s not put him out there on the frontlines like he’s some f**king intellectual or conscious motherf**ker. He’s full of s**t.”
When asked about the infamous on-air argument between the “Get By” rapper and CNN reporter Don Lemon, Star responded he wished Lemon would have slapped Kweli and put his tongue down the entertainer’s throat.
