    Although that sounds like its a good thing but in reality most of these guys are the devils agents hired to destroy our youths minds with mindless and senseless music, its a double edged sword.

    I don't approve of a lot of the ignorance that comes from our MC's, but I've never subscribed to the ideal that entertainers have this power. How can they destroy what I strengthen daily...(my own child's and the youth in the community). A superstars influence can't begin to match that of a dedicated parent.

    What have they done with their wealth. Do they still have it.

    What message is he sending to the youth. A very unhealthy image.
    Making money in the music industry is good...but that is only one part. Blacks need to be doctors, scientist. I am not against musicians...but when they rap about women calling them ho's something is wrong. Look at this rapper, would any mother want him as a son in law...not me...regardless of how much money he has.. He looks unhealthy and probably is.

    This article is a year too late to be relevant.

    The way I see it. The White man pays his fools the most. Usually, White folk pay us an amount of money knowing we'll give him the money back. But with regard rappers and other negative elements, he showers them with money, because not only will these fools give him the money back, but they'll hurt their people and themselves in the process.

    Look at the obese man with the little boy in front of the overpriced car and house. Nothing resembling community, morals, spiritual growth or charity. Everything rather to do with obesity, avarice, and probably, eventually homosexuality.

    Imagine how many more worthwhile Africans get on circulated list. I admit, my bank account isn't near $1,000,000. Geez, looking at the number my bank account really is nowhere near that. But a portrait of me would be one of community, morals, spiritual growth and charity. And the same can be said of other members of Destee as well as Destee herself. Yet it's a wonder why with all of our powers and "free speech," circulating those lists seems so much less popular.
