Alicia Keys is a Conspiracy Theorist?

Alicia Keys recent interview in Blender magazine has revealed some interesting things about the songstress. I was actually listening to her album while reading the piece (which is crazy album), but maybe I’m a have a little crush on her so I really don’t care what she says. Anyway, here’s what she had to say about gangster rap.

‘Gangsta rap’ was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other. ‘Gangsta rap’ didn’t exist.

Huh? A ploy by who? the government. Please don’t go down this road Alicia. You should clarify this statement by saying something like, “It was a ploy by crazy black people to kill normal peace loving black people”. Then no one will care. You just can’t talk bad about the government in 2008 for fear of being called a racist bigot (See Jeremiah Wright).

Alicia then gets a little deeper into the do-do, by saying the feud between Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. was fueled “by the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing”. Huh? I love Tupac and Biggie, but “great black leader”? Since when did musicians become leaders for society? And when did rappers become leaders of anything? Artists can make music that reflects what needs to be done in society, but they can’t be the leaders of society. Their music is the soundtrack to what really leaders do (See Will-I-Am’s Yes I Can). And again from a PR standpoint, isn’t the media the same one that has given you your squeaky clean pass into the halls of white America? I see alot of white chicks at your concert Alicia, don’t upset them baby, you still got more dough to git.

  1. Finally a celebrity that don’t have their head up their ass. See I loveeed alicia since she came out and now that I read this I love her even moree! A lot of people are ignorant about the issue she mentioned and it is true but of course the media doesn’t want you to know that so you don’t hear about that. You only hear all the squeaky clean things they want you to believe. Please are you telling me that you can’t figure that out for yourself ? Tupac, Biggie, JFK, MLK, you just have to be more open minded and do research on things before believing them . I love my Alicia, she’s badd with double D lol

  2. “…but they can’t be the leaders of society” if actors can assume leadership roles in society why not artist/musicians?
