The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place -lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good- so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Have something you always wanted to ask a rapper? Email [email protected].
This Week's Rapper: CANDYMAN
This Week's Subject(s): The non-Hispanic lineup at The Box's forthcoming Los Magnificos Car Show, scheduled for December 5 at Reliant Center.
Note: Rocks Off contacted The Box for a comment on this situation, and program director Terri Thomas sent back the following email: ""Hello! We have no comment. Have a great day!"
Ask A Rapper: Okay, so let's start from the beginning. What is your initial concern with The Box?
I'm tired of them running over us [Hispanic rappers], trying to take advantage of us. I get together with a lot of Hispanic artists and we were talking and it comes up like, "Man, have any of you all been called for the [Los Magnificos] car show?" No, no, no. I'm just in an outrage with them. It's sad. I'm not trying to put it that way, but it's like they're being racial.
