Why Lie?


“Apparently desperate to distance himself from any affiliation with law enforcement, the rapper Rick Ross has recently denounced as fake photos purporting to show him in a former career as a Florida prison guard. But Department of Corrections (DoC) records show that Ross, whose raps detail the Miami gangster lifestyle and his supposed days trafficking cocaine, did, in fact, work as a correctional officer for 18 months.”


This utter foolishness has to STOP! This fool would rather deny that he had a REAL J-O-B and claim he sold dope. Great example, William Leonard Roberts lets continue to perpetrate the fraudulent rap lifestyle to the detriment of our community. I mean seriously who would rather claim to have a legit job earning a decent living on the right side of the law when, they could claim to be a dope boy. Why Lie!

Eb the Celeb recently did a post on this as well. I just think that it's only partially his fault. You have to think these rappers are trying to earn street cred. from the people who actually buy their music. And knowing that he won't get that by actually saying he had a real job says alot about the people that listens to his music. That's just my peace....

Same reason Vanilla Ice lied and told people that he was stabbed in a knife fight when he really got bit in the ass by a dog.

Rappers lie. That's what they do. Hell, the most honest one might be Eminem, who said outright, "I make all this shit up, what kind of idiot actually does all the stuff I rap about?"

@ GO street cred is so overrated. About 97% of these rappers out there are studio made. The ignant (spelling intentional) factor that they cater to only reinforces negative images and stereotypes that are completely opposite of the vast amount of black people out there truly doing their thing the legit way.

@Phelps Eminem was right ONLY an idiot and we don’t seem to be short on the people that believe in the studio rap game and those that believe these images are truly representative of true hip hop.

Hey there!

This is absolutely ridiculous...

A brotha LYING that he had a job?!

I have truly heard it all...
