And Television is on deathrow for killing BET and MTV over a dice game
And paralyizing CNN by knifing him in the neck
Lupe criticizes the media for changing how a few stations have shifted their perspective/theme. For example MTV back in the day used to really just be about music, but that old MTV is dead and gone. CNN IMO is caught up too much about the right fighting the left, and is filled with exaggerations, and they talk about the issues to persuade rather to inform.
Also B.E.T portrays a lot of stereotypes about black people even though it’s intended to help black people’s culture B.E.T also shows the side of hip-hop that isn’t really music. 106 & Park has numerous videos about being thug, having riches, and exploiting young women.
