Might not be his general M.O, but he's definitely had some "thug" tracks. I can see why an old white guy shouldn't really approach this subject, but just for his points, I can't help but agree a little bit. There are repercussions in life for presenting yourself a certain way, and a reputation is a hard thing to change. Rappers aren't above this.
Even in his earliest songs he had no thug style and he hasn't really changed since. The only thing I can think of is 99 problems but all his more popular songs like Dead Presidents, Lost one, Moment of clarity, Feelin it, DOA dont come off as trying to be thuggish to me. I mean half of his lyrics are about a secret organization that doesn't exist. not Killing people, money or hoes.
Maybe I dont know what constitutes to being a thug but I dont see it from his music.

Did he write it into his songs? Did he make a music video that had that imagery?
I do agree with the point of the article but like others, I think he went too far. I also very much agree Sphinx. It seems like Black Americans like putting out a certain image but then get butthurt when that image is then used against them.
No ****ing clue. Not my bag.
