Bun B: Hip Hop Shouldn’t Avoid Obama Criticism When Warranted

HipHopDX spoke with several rappers following Barack Obama winning Tuesday’s election to become the 44th U.S. President, asking Bun B if rappers should refrain from being critical of Obama and his administration with their music. “No, not at all,” the Houston rapper responded. “One thing about being an American is that we have the freedom of speech. One thing about being a citizen is that you have the right to criticize your president. That’s the whole point of a democracy is that it’s run by the people, and the people decide and choose what the policy is and who the people are that implement that policy. And with a person like Barack Obama, we have to hold him to a higher standard than we would normally, because of who he is and what he represents to so many people. This is an opportunity that has never been given before to a person of color. And because of that opportunity, and the many opportunities that are possibly to follow, he has to do very well and do right by us. At the same time, we as a nation have to really get into understanding how politics works and that there are certain things that he can do and certain things that he can’t do.” Read more, including comments from Killer Mike, Consequence, and AZ here.
