Rap, Rebellion and Bourgeosis Youth
Here's the so-called controversial cover of Rolling Stone. Yawn.
I think it has become almost a given that when no one is paying attention to your "artistry" you try to stir up some interest by doing something to provoke or incite.
The only problem is that it's hard to care that much about Rap, Kanye West or Rolling Stone.
Jonah Golberg has an interesting take on why Kanye West's controversial Rolling Stones cover isn't really so controversial after all. It's all here and maybe some of the bourgeosis youth will read it and realize they've been had.
