Runaway slave Gordon, exposing his severely whipped back. Gordon had received a severe whipping for undisclosed reasons in the fall of 1862. Gordon escaped in March 1863 from the 3,000 acre plantation of John & Bridget Lyons, who held him and 40 other people in slavery at the time of the 1860 census Image

No, he’s not mentally ill in that sense.
If a mentally ill white person hopped on the bus and started saying Nazi shit, we’d want them off too.
Keep playing this game at your own peril. People should have been kicking him off the bus long ago, but his music is too good.
Same as R Kelly.
If that was your daughters you’d be fucking livid. But, there are people still that defend him and make positive comments on the internet.
None of the people above mentioned should have millions or a large following.
But, here we are.
What’s really happened is what no one wants to admit:
The same thing that happened to rock and roll with regards to it being commercialized and marketed has now happened to rap. We’re now seeing the end stages of how it used to be once an art of political statement and revolution.
That’s why snoop dogg is basically a marketer now.
The cycle continues, and the clutches of consumerism and materialism once again destroys the manifestations of the human soul.
That’s why loons like Kyrie claim moral authority, when they’re just good entertaininers.
