A memo from Uncle Luke to all y'all haters who seem to think the hip-hop industry should institute some sorta superstrict mandatory retirement policy ... Screw you. That shit's ageist.
In today's edition of Luke's Gospel, entitled "Jay-Z, Eminem, and Rick Ross Are Never Too Old For Rap," 's resident rap expert and anti-discrimination advocate makes the case for middle-aged mike manglers.
Because, according to Luke, "Hip-hop is not some kiddie fad music anymore."
Now Uncle Luke never explicitly addresses his reasons for this sudden, spirited defense of the 36-to-334 rapper demographic.
But as a 53-year-old father, longtime fan of free-speech, and former Miami-Dade mayoral candidate who's preparing to embark upon "the Lollapolooza of Bass music," we can only assume that he's looking to shut up small-minded and discriminatory comment section assholes like Hayabusa, who reacted to the news of 2 Live Crew's upcoming reunion tourby snidely suggesting, "Stay retired."
That's just ignorant bullshit, though. And as Uncle Luke says, hip-hop artists are never too old to rap.
Even grandpas should be able to "Pop That Pussy" and get "As Nasty As They Wanna Be."
