2007 has been an extremely eventful year for Hip Hop. It has received the blame for Don Imus’ “nappy headed hos” comment and even the Virginia Tech shootings last spring. Religious leaders such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have denounced the genre, while artists like David Banner have actively supported the music form. Now whose turn is it? None other than legendary MC and actor, Ice Cube. On the first new leak from his upcoming untitled album, Cube feels that it has gotten to the point where anything negative turns into the scapegoat of Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It. When you get to the heart of it, Cube wants hip-hop music to share the blame instead of take the full load. Given Cube’s established celebrity status, expect the number of Hip Hop dissenters to fluctuate once the song reaches the masses.
