Is Ashley Judd Really Sorry For What She Said About Rap?

The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place - lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good - so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Something you always wanted to ask a rapper? Email introducingliston@gmail.com.

This Week's Rapper: Krumwell

Krumwell, "Good Pot (explicit)"

This Week's Subject: Ashley Judd and hip-hop's "rape culture"; the Knicks; DJ AM vs. Mix Master Mike; and more.

Ask A Rapper: These are all from headlines that have appeared lately on the rap blogs, sir. Let's have you give your thoughts on each, sort of a mini-round up, if you will. And you're off...

Ashley Judd recently backpedaled re: her remarks about how she perceived rap to have a very distinct "rape culture." Do you accept her apology?

Krumwell: I think once you say something the first time, it's how you really feel. She put her foot in her mouth. Now the heat is on [and] she wanna change up. I'm not accepting any false apologies.

Sorry, it's not that easy with Krumwell.

AAR: Swiss Beatz recently updated the New York Knicks' theme song. How far in the playoffs will the Knicks get now?

K: I think the Knicks will make it to the Eastern Finals*. They are dangerous, just lack chemistry.

* Preposterous. They've got a better chance of having Mike D'Antoni win Defensive Player of the Year. They won't make it out of the first round.


AAR: Travis Barker has replaced DJ AM with Mix Master Mike. Which is the better DJ?

K: DJ AM is, and always will be, one of the greatest DJs ever*.

*Agreed.

Once you say something the first time, all ignant and shit, you can learn from the backlash. If you write off everyone who says something stupid ONCE, you're writing off everybody.

Also I love Ashley Judd and want to bear her children, but that's beside the point.

What I never understood from the Judd story is why she did't tackle the sexism in country or rock music.

I'll bet Ashley Judd is devastated Krumwell (who??) didn't accept her apology.

Pretty sure Ashley Judd being pissed off at hip hop probably involve a recruite that showed up on campus, banged her out then went elsewhere, so naturally she vented. Also does'nt help that Jay-Z & Drake are now open Kentucky fans. Just sayin.

Mountain out of a molehill? That is a lame excuse to focus in on one type of music. Sexism is alive and thriving all over the music business. Instead of scapegoating rap, why not tackle the whole business?

Are you saying rock and country music has no sexism? I know rap does, but its nit like other music isn't sexist as well. Please, don't be daft about this.

I'm not saying it doesn't exist but I think you are making a mountain out of a molehill (like usual). You tend to do that I've noticed.
