Lighty Says Obama Needs To Not Worry About Talking To Rappers

In a blog post on, Violator Records CEO Chris Lighty suggested that Obama needs to stick to the important issues affecting black and white America, such as lowering the gas prices and ending the war in Iraq.

Lighty says Obama needs to stop wasting his time with rappers who disrespect our women in their lyrics, then yuck it up in the boardrooms with the ones who encourage the misogyny.
