Newsmax Host Says Hip-Hop Damaged America, Slams “Goofball” Kamala Harris

TV host tries to bash Vice President for having rappers at her home.

While many people are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop, there are some who don’t see the benefit of the musical art form—and Newsmax talking head Greg Kelly is one of them.

He thinks Vice President Kamala Harris was wrong to invite 400 Hip-Hop fans to come into her residence to celebrate the musical form.

As previously reported, the Howard graduate invited prominent Hip-Hop figures such as Common, Lil Wayne, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Jeezy, MC Lyte, Roxanne Shante and Fat Joe to attend.

They not only came to enjoy a day with the VP, but they also partied to performances by Lil Wayne, Jeezy and Too $hort. Kelly said the event illustrated why Harris is a “goofball” and “should not run” for president in 2024, according to a video published on Media Matters.

“Everybody knows she’s a goofball, sorry,” he said. “Here she is celebrating Hip-Hop. Hip-Hop has done a lot of damage to America, especially American youth—especially American youth, people of color, people not of color, all kinds of people harmed by the message of Hip-Hop. Not all of it, but a lot of it.”

While Kelly may think Hip-Hop has damaged America, many believe it has helped the nation— particularly in social justice spaces.
