    Can’t even say what you feel no more, if they don’t like what he said don’t buy his music. Don’t force an apology, people say what they really mean n have to say sorry because u may have offended somebody.

    So that’s what senators do now? issue press releases based on opinions by rappers. Smith has always been a publicity hound but this takes the cake. turn off your ipod and start focusing on issues affecting the community. Then you wonder why the youth don’t vote

    I think this is a bit to far to ask for apology. It’s his opinion about the place not what comes from here or what started from here. How many times has a New Yorker said F-NY for whatever reason?
