Nelly: Republicans Buy Pimp Juice Too

I will admit there are some crimes even worse than telling the world that the only good hip-hop is "conscious" hip-hop. For example, telling the world that hip-hop should never be political, because it might affect profit margins:

“If you want to do the politics thing, be more involved personally, but you could talk about that and then tomorrow wake up and you’re not selling records. So now you protested the war…and your broke!”

Poor Nelly, does he really think that wake-up call will never come for him, if he studiously avoids offending the plantation owners? All he'll be doing is assuring that when the bell tolls for him, he won't even have his integrity to keep him warm.
