Keep ‘Em Guessing

Akon refuses to deny or confirm claims that he lied about living a life of crime:

“‘We’re doing so many positive things. To go back and focus and put energy on negative things like that, to try to discredit an artist, it makes no sense to me. If there was a motive for it, it would be worth entertaining. I’d rather keep it the way it is and leave the article out there. It only helps me. It’s not something I was trying to glorify or turn back to. It was something I was trying to forget. Actually, it worked out for me in a positive way.'”

Whatever works, right Akon? Just like enforcing “Konvict” stereotypes about black men and crime worked out in a “positive way” for your career. SMH.

    Akon is stupid. I realized that when he said he would be the first black person to sing country music if he pursued that career. He’s just a wannabe, and I never liked his voice. he should go work at wal-mart or something.

    Akon is full of crap. It doesn’t take rocket science to see that. Most of hip hop is fabricated anyway. Why do you think so many rappers turn into actors? Cause’ they’re already acting.

  • Ghost

    thugs don’t brag or snitch on themselves of what they’ve done.


    Well my school is full of morons that just love to brag about what they have done and then wonder why they get busted by cops so often.
