Imus trying to blame rappers: finally a few words of perspective

Snoop Says Rappers And Imus Are ‘Two Separate Things’; Talks New Comp
MC says radio host’s racially inflammatory comments shouldn’t be compared to rap lyrics
By Shaheem Reid, with reporting by Rahman Dukes

Snoop Dogg has issued a new warning: Don’t dare to compare his lyrics — or any other MC’s — to syndicated radio host Don Imus’ recent racially inflammatory comments about the black women on the Rutgers University women’s basketball team. Imus called them “nappy-headed ho’s,” among other insults.

“It’s a completely different scenario,” said Snoop, barking over the phone from a hotel room in L.A. “[Rappers] are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We’re talking about ho’s that’s in the ‘hood that ain’t doing shit, that’s trying to get a nigga for his money. These are two separate things. First of all, we ain’t no old-ass white men that sit up on MSNBC going hard on black girls. We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel. I will not let them muthafuckas say we in the same league as him.” (Story.)

Fo’ shizzle.

  1. I actually like some of Snoops stuff. I have Dre’s Ain’t Nothin but a G Thang, from when Snoop was just makin it big. I’d even go so far as say he’s a smart guy. But sometimes I think he doesn’t actually think about what he’s sayin.

  2. This is the kinda shit that makes me second guess ordering a Subway Sub on white bread instead of wheat. Honestly can we blame rappers for degrading women when the business leaders in America do business with cultures who degrade women worse than the US. Can you imagine a rap video in Saudi Arabia ? Basically we trade oil to other countries who treat women like slaves, yet it’s cool.
    What is great about the Imus story is the non stop coverage about a term that is deamed offensive. Yet it’s repeated over an over again. Lets have a discussion about the word ho! I’m sure that will get serious.

  3. Snoop says: …”this punk gets to get on the air and call black women ‘nappy-headed ho’s.'”
    And yet Snoop gets to put out an album with a song titled “Fucking Is Good For U.” Gee, I wonder what he says about the women he is fucking in this song?
    Also love the fact that according to Snoop, it’s okay to write derogatory things about black women only if they live in the ghetto. Because it’s from his mind and soul, you know.
    Imus’ statement and Snoop’s rap lyrics are the same but different. However, in the end, the message is the same: black women (and all women, really) are hos only out to get a man’s money.
