Hypocritical Rappers Cannot Claim the Moral High Ground

Hypocritical Rappers Cannot Claim the Moral High Ground

“In the past, Common used lyrics in his 2007 rap “A Letter to the Law” to call for violence against former President George W. Bush. In addition, Common has talked about killing police officers.

Of course, as do many other rappers, Common degrades African-Americans (he has a song entitled “N***** Quotes”) and disrespects women (he has a song called “The B**** in You”) in his lyrics. In the latter song, he raps about hitting a woman, saying, “I heard a ho say you her favorite rapper, so I had to slap her.””
