IS “BEAT THE “P*****” UP” OK?
Hasn’t this Hip-Hop thing gone too far yet? What was initially meant to be a Socially Conscious and often times Fun, Happy, and Energetic means of delivering a message through the ART OF RAPPING, has become a BREEDING GROUND FOR THE MOST IGNORANT VERBAL COMMUNICATION TO DATE!!!!
The Ignorance associated more and more with what Hip-Hop & “The Rap Game” has become, is epitomized by (in my opinion) “THE RING LEADER OF MUSICAL IGNORANCE”…Lil’Wayne. Wayne has stooped to an All-Time Low this time with his verbal disrespect for an Historic Black Man, named EMMETT TILL, in his Re-Mix version of a song called “Karate Chop”….AND…not to mention DURING BLACK HISTORY MONTH! Instead of educating the youth, who are the primary fans of Lil’ Wayne’s music, with any type of positive information regarding our Ancesters….Lil’ ayne chose to do the exact opposite and use BLACK HISTORY as a means of promoting an even more disturbing instruction as to what to do to a woman…I’m guessing a Black Woman! The lyric in the song is as follows:
“Pop a lot of pain pills
‘Bout to put rims on my skateboard wheels
Beat that pussy up like Emmett Till”
According to wikipedia.com, EMMETT TILL:
“was an African-American boy who was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman. Till was from Chicago, Illinois, visiting his relatives in the Mississippi Delta region when he spoke to 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, the married proprietor of a small grocery store. Several nights later, Bryant’s husband Roy and his half-brother J. W. Milam arrived at Till’s great-uncle’s house where they took Till, transported him to a barn, beat him and gouged out one of his eyes, before shooting him through the head and disposing of his body in the Tallahatchie River, weighting it with a 70-pound (32 kg) cotton gin fan tied around his neck with barbed wire. His body was discovered and retrieved from the river three days later.“
Maybe there’s someone who agrees with this blatant show of COMPLETE IGNORANCE in Lil’ Wayne’s song…I doubt it…. but you never know. I’m curious to know what YOU think. Please take the POLL now and answer the question… Was It Acceptable For Lil’ Wayne To Say, “BEAT THE P***** UP LIKE EMMETT TILL” in the Re-Mix of his song, ‘Karate Chop”?
