I’VE GOT 99 PROBLEMS BUT THAT BITCH JAY-Z AIN’T ONE – Rap star lectures about language and civility:
Hip-hop legend Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter described President Donald Trump’s “shithole countries” comment as disappointing and hurtful.
“Everyone feels anger, but after the anger it’s really hurtful because he’s looking down on a whole population of people and he’s so misinformed because these places have beautiful people,” he told Van Jones on the debut of his CNN program, “The Van Jones Show,” which aired Saturday on CNN…Asked by Van Jones whether it’s OK for Trump “to say terrible things but put money in our pockets” amid Trump’s claims that unemployment for African-Americans has dropped, Jay-Z said no, “because it’s not about money at the end of the day. Money doesn’t equate to happiness. It doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point.”You treat people like human beings. That’s the main point,” he said. “It goes back to the whole thing — ‘Treat me really bad and pay me well.’ It’s not going to lead to happiness, it’s going to lead to, again, the same thing. Everyone’s going to be sick.”
