Right after IMUSgate, rap music immediately came under fire. Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons thinks that the recording industry and radio stations should ban 3 words from "clean versions" of rap songs from the airwaves.
He thinks "bitch," "ho" and the n-word should never be used or heard on the radio.
Russell said, "We recommend (they're) always out. This is a first step. It's a clear message and a consistency that we want the industry to accept for more corporate social responsibility."
His recommendation drew mixed reactions with some in the industry thinking it's a good idea while some are calling it "dangerous."
If you don't like it, turn it off. Here's corporate America telling us what we should and should not be listening to. It's our right as Americans to decide what we want and what we want our children to be listening to. There's a reason for the "off button."
This turtlehead needs to shut his mouth and it's my right to say and it's his right to tell me to eff off and die. Don't you love this country?!
And if they didn't allow us to use the words "ho," "slut" and "bitch," I'd be out of luck! Are there any corporations looking for blowjob givers, because I might need a job soon.
Our commenting rules are pretty simple: If you make any overly offensive comment (racist, bigoted, etc..) or go way off topic when not in an Open Post, your comments will be deleted and you will be banned. If you see an offensive or spammy comment you think should be deleted, flag it for the mods and they'll be forever grateful and give you their first born (although, you probably don't want that).
