Arsenio Hall Disses Rappers

Aresenio Hall had some negative remarks about

rappers abilities, saying he didn't believe there is a rapper "who is as

talented as a good musician."

Hall, who recently snagged the hosting duties

for CBS' reincarnation of "Star Search," also had some choice words

to say about the late Tupac Shakur.

"Tupac [Shakur] is a brilliant poet,"

Hall said. "The way he uses his words, the thoughts, the juxtaposition

... But he can't f**k with Sting. You know, or he can't f**k with Stevie Wonder."

Despite Hall's rhetoric aimed at rappers, they

are eligible to compete on Star Search, which will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays

at 8 p.m. EST.
