I Sing Along To This All The Time. But When She Does, It Makes Me Really, Really Uncomfortable.
I love rap music, and I love the creative freedom that exists within the arts. I am also no fan of art being taken out of context in order to be unfairly criticized. That said, I have been in cars, at parks, and at parties where I hear someone's young kid recite a lyric that they too have heard in the wrong context (or, perhaps more accurately, at the wrong age). I offer this video to us all not as a cheap slap in the face to the music and culture that I love but as a mirror to ourselves, asking us where we are drawing our lines.
