Hurricane Hits Louisiana Capitol

6/25/2009 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Why not let Hurricane Chris rap about Halle Berry inside the Louisiana House of Representatives -- it's not like they have anything more important to be doing there, right?

The rapper, a.k.a. Chris Dooley, Jr., was recently honored by his home state. But instead of giving him a key to the city or some random certificate of congratulations, they gave him the House floor -- and he brought his beats.

I wish Katrina had of wiped the whole state off the map - including it's residents which would have prevent this kind of crap from being allowed and would have prevented all of the ghetto thug criminals from invading other cities like Atlanta, Houston, Dallas and St Louis.

No wonder so few people left when they a 5-7 day warning that Katrina was the size that it was and was headed their way. Idiots running the place.

R They Serious?!?

They "honored" a rapper that raps about sex, drugs, and violence? No1 in the entire L.A. legislation thought of honoring a volunteer helping Hurricane Katrina victims, N.O.'s Mayor Nagen, or a member of the Nat'l Guard? The really believe Hurricane Chris is the best person 2 represent their state?

In the 1 song 'Halle Berry' he says...''she fine den a b***h (aye) a**n her t**s (aye) thick in da hips erry n***a wanna call her Halle Berryyyy...take her from tha club ta da car ta da d**k, Superstar b***h''

Who ever approved this really should b fired.

Kids of all races listen to rap....its an artistic expression of music and has nothing to do with representing a race. Yes, it is ignorant to play that in a state legislature assembly meeting. I was like WTF too?? That is just embarrassing to play that music in a state legislature meeting...any music would seem wierd to play in a serious meeting.

Everyone CALL and let them know how silly they look as a state and how they allow the defamation of women to be proudly displayed on their legislative floor:

Words cannot describe the amount of humliation I feel. I am from Louisiana but now live in Texas. This is why I left even before Katrina hit. They could have honored some one worthy not a thug whose granny thinks he has talent.
