John Legend Says Some Rappers Sound Like A**holes

John Legend takes hip-hop to task for misogny

R&B superstar John Legend is riding high off the release of his fourth solo album, Love In the Future, but that doesn’t mean he’s afraid to push buttons with provocative remarks about the music industry.

In a recent interview with Rolling Out, he called out some of his peers in hip-hop (without naming any names) about the misogynistic content of their lyrics. “Hip-hop has a strong misogynistic streak that we should try to get rid of. More rappers should be careful about what they say about women.

I think they’re trying to sound tough, or sound like they don’t give a sh*t. But to me, it just sounds like you’re an a**hole.”
