I don’t know about you but, Yelawolf’s thoughts and honest opinions on the N-Word and it’s use are much more logical and based in reality than DJ Khaled‘s. Take a peek and decide for yourself…

I firmly believe in freedom of speech. With any/all freedoms comes responsibility. Check out the video below to hear what DJ Khaled has to say about the N-Word. Then, I strongly suggest you read David D.’s well written article over at the Smoking Section. My favorite quote from said article: “I’m not one to get on the high horse about the use of the N-word. I respect anyone feeling they have a right to say it if they’re generally not meaning offense by it. I also respect anyone who’s offended having a right to beat the sh*t out of said person using the N-word.” Link to full article here.
So, as a white Jewish guy (J. Wilder), I appreciate this article. Don’t get caught up on the fact that the article sets it’s sights directly on an individual. Read the article for what it is, a statement on the value of words (or lack thereof) and necessity for intelligence and integrity in music.
