(AllHipHop Rumors) First of all, what is an R&B singer doing with a judgement on rap? FOH! This TOWN BUSINESS! If we are going to have a convo, lets have it but its gotta be with family. No disrespect to Tank, truly, but I don't even know of a rap song he's appeared on. He's OG, but not of the culture or anything like that.
But, David Banner...one of the real true soldiers of the game is the one that made this statement. Check out what he said and weigh in.
I tend to agree with this on a commercial level with Hip-Hop and rap, but it doesn't tell the whole story. There are forces that keep rap what it is and we know this to be the case. So, lets get that out the way. The second fact is poor or plain THIRSTY people will do whatever they gotta do to get paid. That's the American way. That ain't no different that the government putting a power plant in the hood repeatedly knowing it gives people cancer. The only difference is that they don't to that in their own communities. They do it to us. And we do it to us. So WE LOSE>
