In an interview with MTV RapFix Live, Game has come forward to clear the air on the talk that he paid New Yorkers to go out and vote; according to the rapper the news got “misconstrued” as it traveled through media; he was only trying to be a good Samaritan.
“The gas situation was crazy. I was in Jersey, and I didn’t understand until I got into [New York City] and saw 200 cabs lined up, with cars and people out there in a walk-up line with little gas cans. So what I did was, once they opened a couple of the trains again, I just was giving people $20 because I felt that would get you to and from a poll,”
Not long back, Kendrick Lamar had publicly stated that he does not vote and won’t be voting for Obama, butin a recent interview with MTV, the Good kid, m.A.A.d. city rapper has stated that he wants young Americans to go out and exercise their franchise.
From this “You talk with me, you talk with me for hours because everything has a contradiction, everything is higher ranking and way beyond us, way beyond people. So basically, do what you do, do good with your people and live your life because what’s going on isn’t really in our hands.”
He’s gone to this “I think that’s one of our biggest failures as a community, as a generation; not wanting to go out and do for ourselves and to sit back and wait.” “And then when it doesn’t happen, we point the finger. I think we just really need to take matters into our own hands; uplift our community, put money back in our community, and show these kids how there’s something different,”.
is that a change of thought or just that he’s wised up to the fact that being a role model, he has to say and do the right things. That’s some jump in the thought process. What gives?
