Hip Hop superstars and politics

Although I think it's great (and about time) people like P. Diddy and other celebrities used their power and influence to get their fans to be more politically active, there's a cynical side of me that sort of wants to scoff at them. (For example, there's a line in Eminem's new single, "Mosh", in which he says, "No more blood for oil." Well, Marshall, maybe you should practice what you preach and stop driving your fucking gas-guzzling SUVs.)

But with what many refer to as "the most important election in our lifetime" coming up, we need all the help we can get to get Bush out of office. I'll take P. Diddy's and Eminem's "political preachings" any day over that dumb ass sellout from my hometown, Nelly.
