    Kudos Meth for suggesting creating new characters instead of swapping genders or race. No need to have a black James Bond for example. Let the original creator Ian Fleming's of how JB looked like end there or Ernest Tidyman's hero, Shaft stays black. No one wants to see a white Shaft. We create new characters and embrace the future with our creations and not be lazy to just want to recycle old characters...

    That's because rappers aren't real musicians for the most part. They steal other people's music through sampling and then blither over it. Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Bruno Mars, they were and are musicians, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Prince. Rapping is an easy way to get into the business by using other people's hard work. He's an OK actor. He just displaced people that worked really hard at taking drama classes, etc.
