Why are "rappers " so learning impaired?
They are unable to learn from their own bad behavior,not to mention someone else's.

I'm tired of all these half-assed hiphop wanna bee's with lame aliases ...How many of these losers are going to think the prefix lil or young before their stupid uncreative pseudo name is even creative? What the f is a Jeezy or Boozy? If you want to be original, get an education and a real job, quit being lazy and making excuses. Nobody is to blame for your lazyness and ignorance but you. All these losers keep copping out thinking that they can rap. It's just old. I'm black so this isn't a race issue. I'm just sick of ****ty hiphop. When rap died in the 90's so did new talent. Stop giving all these immature fools money that they don't deserve. Who the hell is even buying these albums? Do these people have any taste in music at all? So sick of these losers getting paid for talking about money, diamonds, hoes and rental cars. Hood rich should be criminal.

Why do people have to make this about race? It's sad that in this day in age people are still making ignorant comments. People of all races smoke, drink, and get arrested. People wonder why the race card is still used; because it still exist! Grow up people,
