The Rum and Popcorn 100

I got a lot of problems with these people!

64. The BET Election Special

I ran across this flipping channels one night about a month before the election, and I knew I wouldn’t last, but I had to see it. And, look I understand that maybe the show was not aimed at someone like me who stays well-informed and understood the stakes.

But that still didn’t stop me from changing the channel about fifteen minutes in. I don’t know, there’s just something severely annoying about seeing Nas expound on his thoughts on the issues. I guess I respect his desire to be sort of an elder statesman and voice of the hip-hop community, but there’s something about him that just grates. It’s like there’s an extra layer of bloviating pomposity that only a highly decorated rapper like him could bring. Look, if he helps the youth get serious about the issues, that’s fine, I’m not telling him to be quiet. But I’ll be putting in my earbuds and listening to something more pleasant, like his music.
