NOT w.a.s.p.

rollin down the street, smokin indo, sippin on gin and juice, laid back, with my mind on my money and my money on my mind

The response Mr. Broadus gave to MTV regarding the Don Imus fiasco intrigues me. While I honor his frankness, as a woman I’m a bit troubled by his self-justification. Yet I listen, because the man entertains me…

It's a completely different scenario," said Snoop, barking over the phone from a hotel room in L.A. "[Rappers] are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We're talking about ho's that's in the 'hood that ain't doing sh--, that's trying to get a n---a for his money. These are two separate things. First of all, we ain't no old-ass white men that sit up on MSNBC [which announced Wednesday it would drop its simulcast of Imus' radio show] going hard on black girls. We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel. I will not let them mutha----as say we in the same league as him."
