'Da Brat' has it coming to her/has had it coming to her for the longest time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She. like all rappers, thinks she can get away with ANYTHING/can treat people like sh__!!

I have NEVER wanted to see someone go to jail as much as her (sad thing is that she will probably not suffer , will make freinds there, & be more popular due to stupid fans, when she gets out!!)!

& I wish rap would die,....its for thugs, people so stupid they only know arrogance/violence (& it only promotes more violence. Anyone that thinks otherwise is either stupid of the truth, or has a motive in rap continuing!)!

Lets hope she continues to break the law/be herself,....=horrible worthless piece of life!!!!!!

my, my, what truth dacoits you are    

Ok, Jaime, here are some of your grammatical and spelling errors. It is an aisle, not a aisle;ghetto and black are not synonymous, not is;white peoples';oj doesn't count; hip hop and oj ARE two...;where not were;hip hop's behalf; too drunk, not to;who, not that, doesn't respect herself. Of course, I realize that your mouth and fingers sometimes outrun your brain, and I make allowances.

#100 my point exactly.

Get Real** Firstly, I don't excuse anything done by a rapper or one of our people...IF said rapper or person does a stupid azzed thing then wonders why he's locked up, I will not condone that type of behavior. But I also believe in not judging a person based on past experiences or brushes with the law. Especially if today they aren't doing anything but RAPPING. Lil Wayne shouldn't even be on that list. I might be wrong, but I don't believe he ever had to do time. He started selling drugs when he was extremely young. Got hold to a gun and shot himself. Signed to Cash Money after being on life support 2 weeks at age 11 to escape those streets. Learned his damn lesson. Like most others on that list. In your mess up, I guess you don't deserve a chance to make a better life for yourself. As it has been in the last decade or so..Hip Hop has saved a lot of those rappers lives. They have more to live for. Jay Z went from a Hustler to a CEO. I love Hip Hop. I will protect it fiercely from any naysayers. Although a lot of it I really don't listen to cause I'm 30 and my tastes have changed. I will still fight for this music that has became the soundtrack to my life. T.I. saved me from many a day of wanting to hurt somebody. "Motivation" was my theme song for damn near 2 years dealing with a blatantly racist and patronizing white woman for a boss. (Before you comment on him..the man ain't even went to trial yet and we still don't know the truth) The music has never reached out and murdered anybody. People said the same ish about Death Metal years ago. Grunge to. Those artists were not responsible for raising amercia's children. That is not their job. Their job is to make music. If it sales then good for you. If it doesn't, then it might mean you need to find another gig.

112 # you didn't have to prove anything. I have put how I felt on the table. The difference between me and a lot a white people is that I can admit I have a touch of racism in my body. I don't trust white people as far as I can throw them. I live in the south and have dealt with racist white people my whole life. But I have the respect for people not to disrespect them by calling them Cracker Honkey, Cave B**tch or any of the other names that we have for y'all. Its called RESPECT..its universal. No color lines drawn on Respect Yeah I can think whatever the hell I want to...but if you haven't disrespected me, I have no reason to disrespect you.
