Lil Wayne out does Congressman Charlie Rangel in New York City
(BlackPress.org) – Let’s face it. Lil Wayne had a better night in New York City than recently ousted Black Congressman Charlie Rangel last night.
Wayne, who escaped starting his prison sentence at Rikers yesterday due to a fire, surprised the nation as he did an impromptu performance at Jay Z’s Madison Square Garden concert. He performed his hit, “I’m Going In,” while Rangel had a testy meeting with DNC leader Nancy Pelosci who informed the embattled leader that him that he didn’t have the support to keep this job.
In Harlem today, reaction was mixed on Rangel but Lil Wayne’s big night got a thumbs up.
For years, Black leaders have given the hip hop community the blues, but it’s clear that Rangel might need to take some pointers from Wayne and T.I. on how to barter a prison deal.
How’s that for change?
