Rap Music

An interview with Chuck D. on Fox News:

bq.. On why rap seems so vulgar, “Ask the men in suits who control the radio playlists – ask them why they only are interested in the lowest common denominator. Where are the story tellers? There’s lots of story tellers with good stories to tell in rap and hip hop. Where are they on MTV?”

On whether or not rap is making young people coarse, “Rock and roll is acceptable today but in the 1950’s television commentators said rock and roll would reduce the white man to the level of the Negro. Has that happened yet?”
