This looks like way more of a PR thing than an actual attempt to change something. There is a huge difference between a racial slur on a talk show and lyrics in a rap song.

Seriously, how can lyrics get any worse with examples like the song 'This is Why I'm Hot'? I hope they're just now realizing what idiots they are and how they're embarrassing themselves by promoting shitty lyrics like "I'm hot cuz I'm fly/You ain't cuz you not." THAT DOESN'T EVEN MAKE SENSE.

uhmm.. isn't the whole point that they have been censoring what white people (Don Imus) can say, and now it's become a double standard?

That is the most amazing lyric I've ever read.

how about they meet to talk about how their product is a generic, played-out, seen-the-best-of-it's-days genre? Three 6 Mafia/Cash Money/Lil Jon/Young Jeezy/......IT'S ALL THE SAME....Rim-Spinnin, Cris-sippin, hoe-slappin, crack-slangin, makin-it-rain BULLSHIT. Rap music ate its own when BIG and Pac passed.

I have no problem with insipid lyrics, regardless of the genre. If you want to write the next "My Humps" or "Sk8r Boi," that's your first amendment right to do so, but you have to realize the first amendment is not a safety net. If you write some offensive shit, you have to expect that people are going to be offended and rightly call you out on it.

It becomes problematic when the shit hits the mainstream and consumers gobble it up. They don't stop to consider that they, along with the record companies who push such garbage, are causing the decline in mainstream American music, not piracy. We should be expecting more from our artists and cease to support them when they fail to deliver.

Yeah man! Take away the right to say Bitch and you can say "suck my dick bitch". Take away the right to say Ho and you cant say " I make it rain on these hos". What's next? Holding doors open for women?

uhmm.. isn't the whole point that they have been censoring what white people (Don Imus) can say, and now it's become a double standard?

Yes, it is.

Good, it's complete bullshit this double standard white people live in nowadays, black people can degrade black women all they want with their so-called "artistic expression and poetry" and if you call that trash which is considered rap music in today's world poetic in any way that's pathetic, it's all the same, talking about your bitches and hos, riding in expensive cars, drinking expensive champagne, and killing rival rappers. Now this isn't a blanket statement, there are some good rappers out there that don't fall into this stereotype, but many many rappers do.
