"This Country Is Still Built On Racism"

Even Talib Kweli is, like, damn, that’s a cold-ass honky

Appearing this week on Vlad TV (aka “the TMZ of hip hop”), the Brooklyn-born rapper was asked about white privilege in hip hop. Specifically, how being Caucasian can help some artists, like Mac Miller, make it to #1 on the charts. Kweli gave he honest (and true) assessment:

“I agree with that. This country is still based on racism. That will never change unless we tear it down and start over. White privilege is a real thing. And especially white male privilege. I have male privilege as a black male. But I don’t have white male privilege.” Keep reading »

"Stop pollutin', fool, inspect your dome."

Guys, the ’90s! The best! Here’s a clip from a 1990 Earth Day special, featuring, oh, basically everyone who was famous in the ’90s. While the entire special is about an hour long and features everyone from Neil Patrick Harris (NPH 4 LYFE) to Danny Devito, the Cosbys and the stars of “Thirtysomething,” we thought this Earth Day rap section was tops. In it, future movie/TV stars like Will Smith, Ice-T and Queen Latifah offer up their best environmentally-friendly rhymes. Did you want to see Heavy D rap about dying fish? Will Smith postulate on paint? Kid ‘n’ Play speak out about war (and garbage)? Tone Loc talk about used batteries? Yes, this video is all that and more. [Mental Floss]

And oh yeah, for 10 things you can do for Earth Day check out this list!

  • Rapper Rick Ross has issued a more thorough and this time sincere apology for his lyrics about drugging a woman and raping her. Hmm, perhaps it had something to do with Reebok dropping him as a sponsor? “[F]or me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets,” Ross said in a statement. “To the young men who listen to my music, please know that using a substance to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not only a crime, it’s wrong and I do not encourage it.” [Miss Info TV] Keep reading »
