[video] Joy Daily Destroys Wale and his video ‘Pretty Girls’ (only featuring Light Skinned Girls…)

I am sorry I am late on this Joy, props to sojones for waking me up to this very poignant issue in the entertainment world and beyond. I feature women of all shades and hues on this site, so in no way am pointing any fingers, I just think she has a valid point and it needs to be spread further.

Leave your thoughts. http://www.JoyDaily.tv

Now, I don’t want to sh*t on nobody’s movement, but based on this list of upcoming “rappers” I don’t feel any of them can carry the torch of Hip Hop into ’09. I mean think about it, next year will be one of the most pivotal years in our world’s history, and we gonna need some good music to make it through tough times. With Kanye singing, and Lil Wayne on his rock star sh*t who the f*ck can we rely upon to spit that nitro? The veterans got new albums coming out but a new world beckons the need for a new voice.  Who will emerge from the fray and steal the day?
