Simmons Says Rappers Will Become Less Materialistic

Def Jam Records Chairman is predicting recent terrorist attacks on the U.S. will cause rappers to rethink their current materialistic lyrics. Simmons says to the New York Times, “How big your car is is a boring subject right now. I think there’s a new consciousness in the hip-hop community right now.”

Simmons says the sense of patriotism will inject itself into the rap community adding, “This kind of incident reminds artists that there’s more than dancing or singing. It’s made people more patriotic, and I think a lot of people will be more responsive and aware of their power.”
