Today’s headline comes from The Urban Daily’s Casey Gane-McCalla, who asks Wayne to slow up on soowoo’in’.

I know you don’t think you’re a role model. Still your record label, BET and urban and pop radio are constantly marketing your music to children between the ages of 10 and 14. When they play you “Lollipop” single on BET, the kids who watch you buy your album and mixtapes and get to hear all your Blood gang propaganda.

Hopefully, your time in jail will give you time to reflect about your actions. Gang violence is a big problem for young black males. In L.A. two thirds of all youth killings are gang related. Gang members are 60 times more likely to be killed than non gang members.
