Two days ago while going to the market, the radio was on and out came Eminem’s new record” Shake that ass for me”. Now, as a early rap generationer I think that I am well aware of all of the influences that this music creates and offers to our children. ( remember the Sugar Hill gang, Grand Master Flash and the furious five…Afrikka Bambata?…(ok, that was my membership card.)
In Scandinavia, songs are often played uncensored on the radio. Example…On Eminems song, do you know that Nate Dogg is singing…” I’ve been to the mother f’in mountain top…and I get’s more ass than a toilet seat. Just the thing I want my kids listening to.
There is a singer in Sweden, Eriic Gadde. His new song is ” meet me here in the middle of the night….I don’t give a f%&k if it’s wrong or right.”…I’ll do anything you ask me tooall I wanna say is that I love you.”
Am I stupid or is there something SERIOUSLY wrong here.? I am incensed at the radio stations, the government and everybody that just takes a com se com sa attitude. Now what? I think that exposing my children to sexually suggestive scripts is MY role. What can I do?
