David Banner goes off on Al Sharpton
Legendary civil rights activist, the Reverend Al Sharpton, organized protests across America last week calling for the end of the government’s funding of the music industry, unless “rap artists clean up their act.”
Hip-hop website SOHH.com interviewed David Banner about Sharpton’s demands, in particular his calling for the removal of the words “b**ch”, “ni**a” and “h*” from the music.
Banner said the following:
“The next time you see Al Sharpton, tell him I said @#*$ him and he can suck my d**k,” an animated David Banner exclaimed.
“I might change the name of my album from The Greatest Story Never Told to F#*k Al Sharpton. I hate Al Sharpton. This is the kind of s**t that I’m talking about. They’re killing kids in New Jersey and all across the country and all a muthaf***a got to talk about is rap lyrics? F**k that about they’re our elders and we gotta respect them. I’m tired of this. They’re like the parents, but the parents are crucifying the kids.
“They tried to crucify Nelly and Akon…we need to come together because they’re only doing this because we’re not saying anything,” Banner added. “He’s [Sharpton] a permed-out pimp. Him and Jesse Jackson are out here charging people to do rallies with them. They’re more worried about their investors than our kids. Tell him David Banner said it.”
“Muthaf***as talk a good game about we need to clean up the ‘hood and the lyrics and all that. But I’m out here doing it. Who can say that?”
Strong words – do you agree with David Banner?
