When gansta rappers grow up 

Quote of the day:
"I ain't got time to beef"...

"I'm thirtysomething years old with three kids at the pad and they're trying to see their daddy.

"It was me relaying to (other rappers) that the bangin' in the business ain't making us no money.

"This is the west coast. We built on gangsta, gangsta, gangsta, but sometimes we gotta know when to have peace."
That's Snoop Doggy Dogg, after a meeting of West Coast rappers to try to put an end to bloody feuds between warring gang-affiliated rap posses.

In other words, make money, not war - too much violence can all too easily distract from the main game, which is ripping off stupid white suburban teenage kids who think that by listening to your new CD they, too, can be a part of the dangerous, pathological ghetto lifestyle.

If only all gangstas shared Dogg's capitalist (not too mention family-oriented) spirit, Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. would still be alive. I say, Dogg is your man to represent Compton in the Congress.
