Clifford ‘T.I.’ Harris and up & coming rapper Kap-G appeared on CNN last night to discuss issues of racial profiling and their ‘angry rap lyrics’ with host Don Lemon.
It was just about a week ago that Tip and David Banner jumped on the remix of Kap-G’s ‘La Policia’ and in light of all the recent news of police brutality nationwide, it seems their message of rage is being heard loud and clear.

When asked about the angry message in the song, T.I. responds:
I think there is resentment… an undeniable fear that (I believe) law enforcement has for young minorities and it is reflected in their actions.
And of course that leads to angry lyrics because our music, historically has been a reflection of our circumstances.
So if you don’t like our lyrics, you must then change the circumstances that inspire them.

Who better to ask about the word ‘thug’ than the guy who calls himself Slim Thug? The down south rapper revealed his perception of the word, as well as recounting his experiences with racism.
