Alicia Keys: Nutbucket

It wasn't so very long ago when some influential members of the black community were praising "gangsta" rappers for accurately portraying life in the hood. We were told that the young men who talked about killin' police, dealin' drugs, and beatin' ho's were simply venting their frustration for having to live a life a poverty whilst always bein' hassled by The Man.

That ain't the story we're being told no more. Oh, no. According to Alicia Keys, violent rap music was created by white people and introduced into the ghetto to encourage black people - primarily young black men - to kill each other. When you finish laughing, check this out:

"There's another side to Alicia Keys: conspiracy theorist.

"The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter tells Blender magazine: 'Gangsta rap was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other.' ...

"Keys, 27, said she's read several Black Panther autobiographies and wears a gold AK-47 pendant around her neck 'to symbolize strength, power and killing 'em dead,' according to an interview in the magazine's May issue, on newsstands Tuesday.

"Another of her theories: That the bicoastal feud between slain rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. was fueled 'by the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing.'

To borrow a line from Deputy Sheriff Barney Fife, Alicia Keys is a nut.
