    after seeing will Smith on Leno tonight.
    if all the rappers are actors was they ever really real?
    what does keeping it real mean to an actor?
    even fifty is in acting class.

    maybe rap is all one big act.

    too bad about the kids.

    with an actor, how can you tell what's real?
    i don't particularly care for people who i can't tell where they are coming from.

    what are they?

    are these so called thugs for real or are they acting?
    what is going on?

    is it all an act?
    if all the rappers jump to acting so easily were they always just acting?
    who is keeping it real?

    really.

    The answer is yes most rappers are fake as hell. But What about my dude Mos Def? hes a good actor and a truthful emcee.

    I do have a problem with say queen latifah movies. A bit of samboness is detected. in an interview with Ed Gordon he stated that That Ice Cube had once told him Hollywood only wants to fool with black comedey, she staed well.."everybody has a problem getting films produced, people are just people"she used to be miss afrocentric feel me? But then she id cut on condoleeza rice saying, she needs to let us put a hot comb to that head.. lol I say forget the hot combs and relaxers all together but thats another discussion.....

    peace

    Being a Classicly Trained Actor myself, I must give brother James the point here.

    You can never tell we are lying unless we tell you :)
