Hip Hop’s Use Of ‘N’ Word Frustrates Jill Scott

Radio 1’s Spoony spoke with to get her thoughts on whether some of the lyrics in rap and R&B are degrading or too negative. Scott said, “I think that some of it can be really degrading and almost embarrassing like the use of the ‘n’ word – it frustrates me. If you’re a real artist you can use so many other words instead of that one to articulate how you feel or what you think. Even with curse words I feel like you can use them but there should be a point and a purpose.” Audio at bbc.co.uk/radio1 has since been removed.
