Rza Slams Modern Hip-hop For Glorifying The Ghetto

WU-TANG CLAN rapper RZA has blasted the state of contemporary hip-hop for glamorising drugs and crime. The star - real name Robert Diggs - is fed up with listening to the glorification of ghetto culture in rap music. He says, "Hip-hop is just unbalanced. Right now, rappers are glorifying their hell. How you gonna tell me it's cool to live in the ghetto? Who wants to live where you got rats, roaches, pissy elevators, shootings, killings, rapings, drug addicts, alcoholics, all in a four block radius? "Now, out of nine Wu-Tang members, seven are felons... We were the problem of our communities, but we never bragged about it. We kept moving on about life. "But right now, these hip-hoppers are stuck on one thing. They stuck on sex and violence and drugs and partying. Life is way more than that. Especially the day after the party ends. When you get the f**k up the next day, what you gonna do?"
