Political pundit and long-time civil rights activist Al Shaprton has been under fire this month after documents hit the internet proving his former role as an FBI informant. In the wake of the slander, veteran Miami rapper Luther Campbell aka Uncle Luke recently penned a lengthy response to the revelation and made it clear that he’s definitely not “Team Sharpton.”
Check out some of what he had to say below.

“No one should be surprised that Al Sharpton was a major snitch for the federal government. Last week, the Smoking Gun unearthed damning evidence of the good reverend’s onetime role as a mob rat during the ’80s.
Initially, Sharpton denied it. Now he’s claiming he cooperated with the FBI only because his life had been threatened by gangsters. Yeah, right. Sharpton has been bamboozling African-Americans ever since he joined the civil rights movement. He’s always been a government double agent, pretending to help black people when he really does nothing for them. Sharpton is a great showman who can get cameras to follow him around. His job is to fool African-Americans into thinking someone is fighting for them.
When he came to Florida following the murder of Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin, Sharpton vowed he would lead the fight to repeal the state’s Stand Your Ground law. Two years after the boy’s death, the law is still on the books and Sharpton hasn’t done anything about it. He promised to move to Chicago’s worst neighborhoods to fight the gun violence killing so many black people in the Windy City. According to a recent article, Sharpton leased an apartment in an affluent part of town and stays there only once a week.
I’ve been dealing with two-faced activists like Sharpton since I was an underground DJ in the early ’80s.
For being a government stool pigeon, Sharpton has gotten two book deals, a host spot on a national news talk show, and fame. He’s the greatest snitch ever.
