In this week of horrible news of shootings and sadness, Christian Rapper Lecrae Tweeted something that we really like.
Rap music is mostly full of hate, racism, and bigotry- Just presented in a fun and trendy way. It is a huge part of pop culture, and people should think twice before singing along to offensive lyrics.
But fans reacted negatively, so he added this to his comments:
For the record I don't think Hip Hop is the problem. I don't believe we are loved/treated equal by cleaning ourselves up.

He shouldn’t have bent to pressure, but his original comment is correct. Sometimes, the truth hurts.
