The Gays Have Done It Again

Remember Ja Rule?

The one who used to matter a couple of years when he was the star of a label called Murder Inc.? The guy, who, when he wasn’t rapping about extasy, weed, and committing acts of violence, used to croon love songs with Lil Mo’ — usually sounding exactly like the Cookie Monster? If not, he’s the one who wrote the remix to “I’m Real,” which caught J.Lo a lot of flack for casually singing (over Ashanti’s vocals) the n-word.

It seems he’s found a way to remind us that he’s alive. And if you’re wondering, no, recording with Lil Wayne doesn’t count. You give Wayne a dollar and he’ll jump on your track. I’m not impressed.

Later this month Congress will hold a hearing looking into stereotypes and the degradation of women in the media — particularly Black women. The Congressional hearing will focus on hip hop lyrics specifically.

In an interview with Complex, the inspiration behind “Wanksta” lashed out at Congress.

Yeah, they got my man Doug Morris under fire and shit, they got him going down to go speak to Congress about hip-hop lyrics, are you fucking serious? There’s a fucking black kid right now about to get 25 years for having a fight with some white kids over hanging the nooses over the white tree, lets get to that. Let’s get into shit like that, because that’s what’s tearing up America, not me calling a woman a bitch or a hoe on my rap songs.”

Partial credit for the Jena 6 mention, but wait, it’s coming.

“And if it is, then we need to go step to Paramount, and fucking MGM, and all of these other motherfuckers that’s making all of these movies and we need to go step to MTV and Viacom, and lets talk about all these fucking shows that they have on MTV that is promoting homosexuality, that my kids can’t watch this shit. Dating shows that’s showing two guys or two girls in mid afternoon. Let’s talk about shit like that! If that’s not fucking up America I don’t know what is.”

And there it is. So the promotion of violence, drugs, and misogyny isn’t hurting this country, it’s corny dating shows that feature homosexuals souring this country’s values.

This coming from someone once accused by DMX of having his own poking session with a male stylist while high on extasy. (To be fair: Crackheads lie, but you never know.)

I’m actually not a fan of the government telling us what’s right and what’s wrong, but it’s idiots like Ja giving them motive.

He has a point that hip hop isn’t the sole reason for this country’s woes, but when it comes to stereotypes and degradation of black women, his calling a woman a bitch or a hoe is an issue.

Ja followed the question about the hearing up by speaking on his coining of the nickname “Superhead” for Karrien Steffans.

Yep, it’s definitely the gays.
