Jay-Z Thinks Gangstas Are No Longer Relevant
It’s official, everyone mostly everyone thinks that President Obama is the next savior! In an interview with Cigar Aficionado Jay-z says,
“Obama represents so much hope for blacks and Latinos. The hope he represents is bigger than any of the huge problems he could possibly correct,” he said. “When you have positive role models, you can change your life for the better. The day Obama got elected, the gangsta became less relevant.”
What about you Jay-z? Was it too much for you, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and the likes to help change the image of gangstas for young kids? What if President Obama turns out to be an outright gangsta like Bush? Then what?
There is no doubt that there are positive implications from President Obama’s election but it’s disappointing for someone of Jay-z’s caliber to forget that he could have provided that same effect.
