New York Mets Centerfielder, Lastings Milledge, Slammed for Dirty Rap Song

milledge.jpgNew York Mets centerfielder, Lastings Milledge, has come under fire from the Mets organization and the media for a vulgar rap song he recorded with an artist on his record label. The song, “Bend Ya Knees,” is a collaboration with Manny D, an artist signed to Milledge’s record label, Soulja Boi Records. Throughout the song, the 22-year-old athlete uses the “N” word and claims to have a “top-notch ho” and “a different bitch for every night.” The song can be heard on In response, the Mets released a statement yesterday condemning the track and its lyrical content. “We disapprove of the content, language and message of this recording, which does not represent the views of the New York Mets.” Manny D, however, feels the controversy is unwarranted. “Do I feel like he should watch what he says because he’s in the public eye? Yeah, but everything he’s doing is positive,” Manny D told the New York Daily News. “He’s not out there shooting people or shooting up dope. How can you fault somebody for something they say?” Milledge did not respond directly to the firestorm he created, but did tell the Daily News, “I’m only talking about baseball right now. I just want to rehab and get back (to New York).” Currently, Milledge is playing for the Mets minor league, Triple-A New Orleans team. According to the Daily News, this isn’t the first controversial incident the Florida native has been involved in. In 2003, he was expelled from Northside Christian School for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old girl. Milledge allegedly agreed to enrolled in a juvenile arbitration program to avoid jail time. But after the Mets drafted him in 2003, the Daily News reported Milledge was allegedly accused of having consensual sex with 12 and 13-year-old girls. He was subsequently expelled from Northside Christian School.

    A nigga got a right to say whatever the fuck he wants to say. Fuck all ya self-righteous, pigface assholes out there for trying to air out all the rappers. shit was fucked up from the gitgo. at least the rappers have the heart to put the shitstem on blast. It’s not every black man’s fault that Don Imus said what he said. That shit was his fault and his fault only, so shut the fuck up, faggots and let that shit go. al sharpton, you’re walking a very thin line with this morality issue, dog, so watch your step and keep things in perspective. Don’t fuck shit up, you permed out bitch. you are fucking with our freedom to express ourselves how we see fit. Watch your step, mf! You might be barking up the wrong fuckin tree, b. too many parallel crackers trying to jump on the fuckin bandwagon, and you’re selling the rappers out. might have to be some retribution, so be careful and you watch what the fuck you say, Mr Al “Uncle Sam’s Toy” Sharpton!
