Ignant on 60 Minutes

"Even in our finest hour we got a crack-head on stage!"
- Chris Rock

To be fair, Cam'ron is not an actual crack-head (and this certainly isn't Hip Hop's finest hour) - he just makes crackish comments far too frequently (my homie Sean P's personal fav: "Call the girl poultry cause she smells like fish").

Here's his latest (courtesy of cbsnews.com). Good lookin' Khalilah.
(CBS) Rap star Cam'ron says there's no situation — including a serial killer
living next door — that would cause him to help police in any way, because to do
so would hurt his music sales and violate his "code of ethics."

whose real name is Cameron Giles, talks to Anderson Cooper for a report on how
the hip-hop culture's message to shun the police has undermined efforts to solve
murders across the country.

Cooper's report will be broadcast on 60
Minutes this Sunday, April 22, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

"If I knew the serial
killer was living next door to me?" Giles responds to a hypothetical question
posed by Cooper. "I wouldn't call and tell anybody on him — but I'd probably
move. But I'm not going to call and be like, 'The serial killer's in 4E.' "

Giles' "code of ethics" also extends to crimes committed against him.
After being shot and wounded by gunmen, Giles refused to cooperate with police.

"Because … it would definitely hurt my business, and the way I was
raised, I just don't do that," says Giles.

Pressed by Cooper, who says
had he been the victim, he would want his attacker to be caught, Giles explains
further: "But then again, you're not going to be on the stage tonight in the
middle of, say, Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, with people with gold and
platinum teeth and dreadlocks jumping up and down singing your songs, either.
We're in two different lines of business."

"So for you, it's really
about business?" Cooper asks.

"It's about business," Giles says, "but
it's still also a code of ethics."

Wow...I didn't realize "Stop Snitching" protected "serial killers" as well. How much more ignant can things get? This muttaskutta is seriously saying that if he lived next door to a dude who eats peoples faces for fun - all he'd do is move??? He wouldn't tell the authorities???? Worst off, he'd still sell his place to someone else KNOWING that dude next door neighbor eats faces for fun???? Attention Quotable Nation: Cam'ron Giles has officially failed as a human being.

And another thing...

First, Don Imus blames Hip Hop for his 'nappy-headed hoe' comment. Then, Oprah hosts a Hip Hop Townhall meeting to discuss b*tches and hoes and everything else wrong with rap music. And now Cam'ron (of all MCs) is representing Hip Hop on 60 Minutes?!

Sign of the apocalypse?

Speak on it...

I believe 60 Minutes purposely picked Cam'ron to interview on this topic. They are obviously aware that throughout his career he has had nothing of value to add to a constructive conversation on any socially relevant issue. 60 Minutes needed another ignant muttaskutta with a high enough profile to continue to feed the stereotype.

This is the crazziest thing I have heard all day. Why have this guy on 60 minutes.

That's a waste of 60 minutes.

I feel like Cam set us back 200 years with that dipsh*t nonsense he was talking on 60 Minutes. I was floored watching that interview and hearing the stupidity spewing from his mouth. The sad part is this "stop snitching" phenom has gone too far. I remember when it ONLY applied to people who committed crimes (hustling at best) and if they got caught were not to tell on their cohorts and take the rap. Now, this concept has extended to people keeping their mouth shut about ANY crime and that's just sickening and creating a sense of lawlessness in our communities.
I am quite saddened at the state of hip-hop these days and unfortuantely am losing hope that things will turn around for the better.

PS: Thanks for the shout Just (lol)
