RE: Hot

But if your problem is with the overabundance of misogynistic and/or materialistic lyrics, why don’t you have a problem with Dilla or Pharell? Aren’t they part of the same problem? Dilla was always talking about hitting up strip clubs, drinking, objectifying women, whips, watches, etc… We both agree that Dilla was a virtuoso producer/emcee, but the question I posed is whether our respect for those amazing skills permits us to overlook the anti-social content of his lyrics.

It’s a tough call, and that’s why I’m so reticent to start calling out any emcee whose lyrics contain negative themes–I would effectively be cutting myself off from the music I love, and Dilla would be included–genius producer or not.
