none & done, Dept...
big sigh of relief throughout Spartan Nation...
no bad reflection on Dantonio's due diligence in recruiting - the kid's parents were (reportedly) as astounded/disappointed in the career path taken as the rest of us...
reluctant kudos to the kid for (whether planned or not) using his touted athletic talent as a publicity-springboard into hate music...
tomorrow he'll be a weak memory, next week forgotten, appropriately.

The kids scholly was pulled by MSU over 3 weeks ago. MSU just had enough class not to air the dirty laundry. This kid came up with this plan to explain why he was no longer going to MSU.

I don't know how I can say this and not sound like I'm being racist (which I'm not trying to be), but who is surprised? Look at the influences that young black men have in this country. It didn't look to me like he was raised in the slums, either, looking at that neighborhood they were all in, but the very few (and I mean hundredths of thousandths of a percent of those who try) people who pursue rapping and actually make it and make good money essentially are putting the message out that, if you smoke weed, disrespect women and go for greed, you'll make huge amounts of money.

I didn't mean that to come off as racist, but seriously, I wish there were better influences on these kids. Rappers are the only style of "musicians" who essentially write songs solely around bragging about what they have, who they fuck and what drugs they do, and until they stop, this sort of thing isn't gonna change.

How many times do I have to see people pigeon hole Hip Hop like that?

Narrow minded people make me sick.

Are you seriously comparing the content of their songs to the content of this kid's rap song? They all sometimes will do a song like that, but largely their music isn't like that at all. Come on man...

When the majority of popular rap songs aren't about the exact same thing I said they are (and you can add in killing someone else), then you won't see it.

You're ridiculous, dude. Narrow-minded? I'm in my late fucking 20s. I've listened to more than my share of rap. Before you get on your soapbox about how there are talented rappers who don't rap about that stuff, bear in mind what is popular and what teenagers are listening to for the most part.

I'm not sure if you know what it means to speak in absolutes if you think that's what I did.

Dont most NBA players want to be rappers or entertainers? Thats why i stopped watching the glamorous NBA. watching postgame interviews? What these players wear? Has anyone seen dwayne wade? How much attention does he need. I remember liking wade a long time ago. Thats what the NBA does to you. I guess this kid said skip college, NFL, and anything else......hes going straight to the top..........of the cook line at burger kang.

A majority of rap songs become popular becuase white suburban kids think its cool so they start buying the records.

Not talking about what white kids are listening to, so I'm not sure how this is relevant.
