If any of the other performers at glasto, let's say...oh..The Cribs, did that; they'd be nailed to the mast and left out to dry.
And let's say Dickie Ashcroft released an album of tales about he was a big tough gangster, selling drugs and running teams of prostitutes in Wigan.
And let's say....
The Cribs wouldn't say that, would they, cos they have principles and they are good people.
And Ashcroft just would not get away with such glamorous and exciting stories
partly because it is bullshit and even he might draw the line at such TOSS.
He is just a rich, cossetted old pop star after all. And partly because such tales would make him look fucking stupid.
(Insert joke here).
Now I wont deny tha Jigga puts together a great beat and can work the crowd and rock the house with the best of them.
And is not entirely without wit.
But, it seems to me that his lyrics and pretty much his whole persona is ridiculous, insulting, nasty, juvenile and bullshit.
That man is 40 not 14.
And because he is black and a rapper, he is allowed to run off at the mouth unchecked and unchallenged.
A double standard that I don't understand.
