Nas & Derrion Albert on CNN

When artists plan or are sought out after to be guests on these shows, specifically hip hop artists, be ready for the infamous portion of the discussion where they're interrogated on whether or not they feel the music they live to make, causes violence and so on and so forth.

As fans, etc. we are very much so aware of the underlying messages (and some not so underlying...just flat out blatant) that this genre of music delivers, at the same time there are just as much, that aren't glorified or put in the spotlight as much, that deliver positive messages to the masses.

*I just wish that when these interviews were conducted that they're intended to be handled on level playing fields, and not to tear down the culture of the music and us as a people.
