John Legend Finds Some Hip Hop “Pretty Disgusting”

johnlegendJohn Legend, who has collaborated with many hip hop artists has spoken his mind about some of the misogynistic lyrics in the music. In an interview with Rolling Out, the G.O.O.D Music artist said, “Hip-hop has a strong misogynistic streak that we should try to get rid of. More rappers should be careful about what they say about women. I think they’re trying to sound tough, or sound like they don’t give a sh*t. But to me, it just sounds like you’re an a**hole.”

I actually agree with him and I grew up with hip hop. Some of the stuff I hear is absolutely ridiculous. That is not to say it wasn’t a part of the music when I was growing up but now it seems to be the overwhelming theme in at least radio hip-hop.

“Some of the things I hear, I find pretty disgusting,” he added. What do you think?

I agree..these program directors and music directors are freakin careless about what they are playing..underground music with crazy ghetto lyrics have always existed, I grew up with it too but it would live only in clubs and mixtapes..a lot of this stuff has no place on the radio..Radio needs to stop battling with mixtapes and clubs and sound like the radio again..everyone isn’t trying to hear that stuff at 10 in the morning..what kind of commercials can you run to people who like the most ignorant music possible..I’m not against artists creating what they want to make..everything just has it’s place..Underground lyrics should stay in the underground Period!
