It’s a tale as old as time. Rappers wanna be ball players while the ball players wanna be rappers. Unfortunately, not everybody can be Master P.
Stephen Jackson, a former NBA champion, is seeing a disturbing trend in the NBA where young players are trying to be rappers on the side, which is fine, but their lyrics are a big issue as they are talking about things they have never experienced.
“Shooting at somebody is not a good feeling. Being shot at is not a good feeling. So why do yall wait till yall get money and wanna start rapping about shooting down on people when yall ain’t come from that.
None of yall came from it, but yall wanna rap about all these drugs that yall didn’t grow up doing. When did this become cool?”
There’s no telling who Jackson was listening to that set him off, but the message is important and clear.
