Minister Asking For Boycott Hip Hop Artists

RALEIGH, N.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An ordained minister in North Carolina is hopping mad at hip hop artists who he says are doing a disservice to the entire black community.

Reverend Paul Scott, the founder of the New Righteous Movement, says the black community is “being portrayed in a very bad light” these days by rappers such as the Ying Yang Twins who – among other things – have made the word “ho” a household word.

More specifically, Scott is steaming about the way record labels are promoting hip hop music which “degrades the black community, disrespects black women and promotes black on black violence.”

Fed up with this “brand of hip hop,” Scott has organized a group of activists across the U.S. called BAMM – Battle Against Minstrel Music – and is asking blacks to boycott black-hating hip hop artists and their record labels.

Scott’s goal is to take away the music industry’s “ghetto pass” – which he says is the use of black artists by music executives to disrespect the black community.
