Alicia Keys: Conspiracy Nut

There are some really great conspiracy theories out there: the moon landing was faked, the mob and government killed JFK, Area 51. But, this one really takes the cake as far as music conspiracies go.

Alicia Keys believes the government "invented" gangsta rap in hopes that black men would kill each other. No, I believe Ice-T was the inventor of gansta rap wasn't he? Didn't "Colors" hit before NWA?

Anyhoo, I can get with the theory that the government created the AIDS virus, and possibly, maybe created crack cocaine and brought it to the inner cities. But, she would have me believe the government invented gangsta rap so black men would kill each other? I don't think so.

Gangsta rap comes from a man seeing his surroundings and writing about them. Or, in the case of some wankstas, living out a fake lifestyle and just telling stories they thing will sell them one million records. (MSN)
