Hip-Hop Experts React To George Bush's Kanye Comments
Like Bill Clinton and Lil Wayne, George Bush cares what Kanye West has to say.
In an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer, Bush relayed that the lowest point of his presidency was in 2005 when, during a live benefit concert for Hurricane Katrina victims on NBC, West broke from the script and told the world “George Bush does not care about Black people.”
"I resent it, it's not true, and it was one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency," Bush told Lauer.
Bush’s tenure as Commander in Chief was controversial for a number of reasons—including the war in Iraq and the economic crisis—but most intriguing was the former President’s commentary admitting that while he was the leader of the free world, was worried about what West, a humble rapper/producer from Chicago, had to say.
Here’s what a selection of esteemed hip-hop journalists and bloggers had to say about the 43rd president’s admission, beginning with his “of course I’m not a racist” please.
