Conflict diamonds

I've never been a fan of Fabulous. His rapping pretty much sucks but my dislike was very much indifferent. Until this clown made a video celebrating diamonds.

I don't know maybe the video was sponsored by DeBeers. I thought Hip-Hop was at a turning point, when even Kanye West is speaking out against conflict diamonds and 50cent is toning it down. I don't expect rappers to be the most politically acute people but there is now a major motion picture outlining the horrors of conflict diamonds. And when rebels in Sierra Leone played hip-hop music when raiding villages, then yes hip-hop has some responsibility.

for the love of diamonds
