This is an interesting concept - having a morality clause - that is obviously grown out of the frustration that many are feeling when they hear about high paid recording artists acting out in public or committing crimes. The most recent being a stash of drugs being found in the home of Jadakiss who was not arrested or wanted by police. While this may have some effect in the NFL or NBA it is likely not to work in the music arena for a number of reasons.
Author’s Note: The following essay represents my attempt at articulating a response to Kid Cudi’s “Make Her Say (Poke Her Face),” featuring Common and Kanye West. I’d like to be honest in stating upfront that, during the process of writing this piece I only listened to the song and read over its lyrics on an absolutely-as-needed basis. The words & the images these contempt-ridden lyrics created in my mind left me feeling physically sick and emotionally depleted, even at times to the point of being traumatized.
