Sarah Palin Says She Listens To Hip-Hop

Sources say that Sarah Palin is a fan of hip-hop music, but is not a fan of Chicago rapper Common. During a television interview, Palin commented on Common’s poetry performance at the White House Wednesday night. Palin, who is said to supported free speech, is not anti-rap, but has issues with Common’s poetry and lyrics on his track “A Song for Assata,” which supports Assata Shakur, who was convicted of murdering a police officer in 1973. “This rapper — we thought that we were to be united under the leader of the free world, Barack Obama, in tamping down racism and inciting violence and cop killing, certainly, and killing a former president, all those things that this rapper has glorified and really is known for, it just certainly reflects a lack of judgment on the White House’s part. I am obviously a proponent of free speech. I’m not anti-rap. In fact, like Bret Baier, I know the lyrics to ‘Rapper’s Delight,’ but I am saying just common decency in the White House — wouldn’t we like to see a reflection of all that is wonderful and great, a shining city on a hill that the White House is supposed to be, with events inside of that house that reflect the patriotism and the decency and the influence of America.”
