5. I've read numerous rappers bragging about this.

Iíve read none bragging about how theyíre proud of voting.

Seen any rappers encouraging voting lately? Please donít tell me Killer Mike and Cardi B lol.

Personally, I donít give a crap about any artist from any genre telling us how they vote. But bragging that you donít vote is just wrong.

6. Kanye said about 2 years ago in an interview with David letterman he has never voted in his life

50 Cent has just announced that he will be voting for trump
Guessing some do vote and some donít but I think unfortunately itís more about influencing a lot of other voters

8. Damn, I'm getting old. "All your life"?

Over half of my life was over before there even was Hip Hop.

9. Do your best to separate the art from the artist.

I know nothing about rap, but Wagner, TS Elliot and Degas (music, painting, and literature to illustrate how much it encompasses) were all extremely anti-Semitic; yet I not only appreciate and own copies of their work, but actively seek it out on the municipal art scene.

That was off the top of my head. My guess is that if I looked into the personal lives of any artists whose works I enjoy, I'd find a ton more discrimination and ugliness. I'd guess that applies to all of us if we're honest with ourselves.

It's tough to deny the singular genius of Bobby Fischer, almost as tough as it is to admit to myself how much of a jerk he really was. So I've learned to rationalize a distinction between their art and the flawed human who created the art.

Luckily for me, Wagner isn't on all over social media and television doing a promo tour for Die Meistersinger and opening his stupid yap.
