The day that being gangsta is seen as a negative aspect is a day we can all rejoice. According to Jay Z, that day is coming thanks to Obama being elected as the President. You know what to do

Hip-hop icon Jay-Z says that President Barack Obama’s election marks a decline of the “gangsta” image in the black and Latino communities.

The rapper and businessman made the comments during a wide-ranging interview with Cigar Aficionado magazine.

“Obama represents so much hope for blacks and Latinos,” the rapper told the magazine.

“The hope he represents is bigger than any of the huge problems he could possibly correct,” he said. “When you have positive role models, you can change your life for the better. The day Obama got elected, the gangsta became less relevant.”

Real talk, Hov. We agree.

Discuss.

    Comment is great, but unfortunately hearing Jay-Z speak on it, is like the Mexican Cartels telling kids not to sell drugs.

    Will never happen….too many women like “thugs” in their lives.

    Jay-Z got a lot to answer for because he helped to promote that trifling gangster image which resulted in so much crime, swaggering dumbshits with no education, no prospects, no jobs. The lowest common denominator in our culture that took over for too long doing this rap shit.

  • Lady Architect (Feeling Good)

    I’m glad he said that…It is true…If your start showing children that being succesfful with morals is better than being in a gang…then they may have a good chance at life.

    @PURPPLE, just call me TADOW

    Instead of calling others dumb (cuz I get what you’re saying regarding corporate thuggery), why don’t you school them so they can be “smart” like you? So what IS your view on this topic? *and no I’m not being sarcastic*

  • http://bossip Whoa!

    @Soul Ese

    And why are you taking it there with that stupidity? Your comment was soooo stupid.

    If you read my comments or ever read any comments i post on this site then you’d get the jist of my “views”. Discussing this in detail right now would be like beating a dead horse. Im sure u got the point of how i feel about Gay z’s comments by the little ive said…..read between the lines.

    “The hope he represents is bigger than any of the huge problems he could possibly correct,”This is the strongest piece of truth in the whole article…
    with underground documentaries like the obama deception out we have to realize it’s not solely about what he does in his term it’s that obama’s greatest accomplishment is giving us an image of black leadership..The hope an inspiration he has given us is greater than the changes he can make to a several century old system.
