Jadakiss, Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Adam Horovitz and Mike D of the Beastie Boys, and Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas are among the artists speaking out against President Bush in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. “It’s about goddamn time people started waking up,” Jada fumed. “I got two kids, and I don’t want no war going on while I’m raising them. Everything that is happening right now is gonna be their social-studies lesson. We need to get things on the right track for them. We got to get some more jobs for people, because that’s gonna be the main problem for years to come. A lot of felons can’t get jobs, and that creates more crime. There’s definitely a lot of hatred for Bush right now. He lost my trust a long time ago, when I woke up in my bed and found out the election had been rigged. I think Kerry’s aiight. Everyone always ignores the hood, but I think he’s a little bit more for the people than Bush. I’m for whatever is gonna make a little bit of a change. It gotta start from a pebble to get to a boulder.”
