Well, with one notable exception...

One postscript to my previous comments. “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” winning best song was such a miserable joke. It’s one thing to give it to Eminem for “Lose Yourself,” which was a great song. Or hell, if you wanted to honor Wyclef for “Million Voices” from Hotel Rwanda, that would be great as well. But this year’s “winner” was a crappy song by a crappy group with a crappy message and a crappy hook. It’s like the voters just went, “well, we don’t like it, but it’s not our thing anyway, so someone must like it.” Umm, no. I understand you don’t want to be dismissive of different tastes, but there is good and bad in any genre. It makes me cringe when the mainstream wants to be tolerant or whatever, and just ends up making hip-hop culture worse by promoting the likes of G-Unit over say, dead prez.
