Did the PMRC help Gangsta Rap give Hip-Hop its first megastars and its first billionaire performer? I doubt it, but the PMRC didn’t slow ‘em down, either.
My wife — who has never listened to Hip-Hop — follows Ice T on Twitter and she ain’t following anyone from the PMRC.
I wonder who from the PMRC has a Twitter account, even? I’m not doing the research ‘cause I’m not looking up Tipper Gore’s Twitter handle.
But I will ask my wife if she remembers the PMRC and whether the group’s efforts helped her raise two sons by herself. I’ll correct this post if she tells me “yeah.”
I’m going to predict the opposite because I do not believe “Explicit Lyrics” make the man, though I can see Alexei’s point about the misogynist language his parents encountered with their students.
Had my parents forced me to listen to Gospel, music, would that make me (more of) a Christian?
