Dead Bombing Suspect

Heavy Into

Hip Hop

EXCLUSIVE

0419_real_hiphop2
The older brother who was killed and suspected in the Boston bombings was deep into hip hop, and it appears he belonged to a fan website that touted that genre of music.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev has an email associated with the website, "Real-hiphop.com."

The site provides information about hip hop artists and upcoming DVD releases.

What's interesting ... hip hop lyrics are notoriously violent and often degrading to women.  Tamerlan Tsarnaev has a boxing profile in which he says he doesn't take his shirt off much because he doesn't want women to get bad ideas, adding, "I'm very religious."  This statement is significantly more conservative than the hip hop genre.

Its awful and horrible what these animals did but I dont believe the cop fanatasy stories one bit, wouldnt be surprised if they executed them on the spot. I guess many (americans) would say "thats what they deserved" etc... Well thats exactly why these things keep happening in the US and americans and everybody hates you. Arogance, guns, violence, wars, lies... You should lead with an example not guns.

Really, hip hop is typically violent and chauvinistic? Nice detective work, Inspector Gadget. Now tell me the mysteries of toenails.

Are you fugging serious tmz? Why is this relevant? Hip hop music doesn't have shet to do with these whack jobs. I bet they eat McDonald's food too so we better put that out there too. And I bet they wear/wore socks so we better find a way to tie that one to people too. Grow the fugg up, Dirtballs
