Here's my lastest column on theGrio. The discussion around Watch the Throne has bothered me a bit, particularly about how Jay and Ye are flaunting their wealth during such hard economic times. I get that sentiment completely. And by all means, I don't think anyone should listen to this album if it offends them that much. Thing is, there is so. much. more. going on here. It's one of those "do you fools listen to music or do you just skim through it?" moments. I understand we all bring our own perspective to it, but I think if you're actively listening instead of deciding the content based on a few buzz words you heard, there's a message here bigger than just Maybachs and G4s. But this is just my two cents or more.
