Re: “Chief Keef goes bigger than expected, signs to Interscope

How the f@#k can u judge anybody?! The above comments is exactly why it's the way it is in our black community now.. we are (arguably) the only race that don't stick together. Always criticizing and demeaning one another. Can't be successful without getting put down by our own people and wonder why other races and cultures has no respect for us as a whole.. I grew up in the Ida b. Wells south side Chicago listening to rap music 24/7... in no way, shape, or form has it dictated or influenced any decision I made in life. The two comments above are clearly the ones who forgets where they came from, their roots and what make them who they are.. BLACK.. if a young man puts his life out in a record for all to bare witness than I give my utmost respect.. it takes a lot of courage and dignity to do such.. especially if it's the truth and not fraudulent like a lot of music today is, as well as the artist(s) who is betraying themselves.. live your life the way you see fit.. don't berate another man for doing him and becoming successful in the process.. it just give people outside of our own something more to criticize our culture about... don't be a hater all your life.. I'm just saying
