Why they ain't give us a cure for AIDS?

from Jadakiss – Why? Lyrics on Rap Genius


Well, H.I.V. is a mutagenic virus so it’s really really hard to cure

Jada seems to be pushing the conspiracy theory that AIDS was created by the government to weaken the black community and that there is a cure being kept hidden. This is consonant with his 9/11 Trutherism.

A more charitable explanation is that Jada is suggesting that the government has not adequately invested in AIDS research because it affects mostly marginal communities (blacks and gays), which would have been a defensible point until the late 1990s.
