    Hip-Hop artist Akon posted this message to the black community: “Every African American in the United States need to move their money, family, knowledge back to Africa were u will be treated like the royalty you are. You don’t deserve this treatment. This is not your country!!” Really Akon? So where is Akon suggesting the blacks move to? Nigeria? Zimbabwe? Egypt?

    Akon’s threatening to move back to Africa, kind of like how Seal and Heidi Klum are saying they’ll leave, but with less panache because (let’s face it) he’s not as popular as he thinks. He spends way too much time attacking his own fans to get much sympathy from us, but the threat is there nonetheless: “If he [Obama] doesn’t get into office, I’m gonna change my citizenship,” he said. “I’m moving back to Africa. You can hold me to that. I’m afraid to live there if he [McCain] is President. The decisions he makes scare me: he’s making selfish...

    You've heard of resume inflation? You've heard of people who lie about having Ph.D.s or Ivy League pedigrees in order to get ahead? The world of thug culture has its own perverse equivalent, in which middle-class men with minor legal transgressions exaggerate their bad behavior, claiming to be hard-core degenerates in order to impress youngsters looking for outlaw role models. In this destructive environment, the more violent and predatory you are, the more heroic you seem. That helps to explain why a metro Atlanta hip-hop star known as Akon wove a tall tale of malevolence and criminal activity, claiming to...
  • Akon's Con Job (Platinum-selling rapper fabricated lengthy prison record)

    04/17/2008 11:47:56 AM PDT · by barackyroad · 17 replies · 133+ views
    As recounted in scores of interviews since his first album, the platinum-selling "Trouble," debuted in 2004, Akon was incarcerated for a total of four-and-a-half years, including a long stretch for his role as the "ringleader of a notorious car theft operation." Akon's gang specialized in boosting Porsches, Lamborghinis, and Mercedeses, he owned four chop shops catering to "celebrities and drug dealers," and he frequently escaped from cops in high-speed pursuits. His criminal empire collapsed, though, after underlings--who "felt like they deserved more than they were getting"--cut deals and ratted him out to law enforcement. As a result of that betrayal,...
  • Akon can forget about fighting for the right to rep Verizon

    In a nutshell, Verizon dialed up Akon's people and asked if he'd like to be a spokesperson or a featured artist or whatever on all their cellies. They said they were down. Michelle Malkin got on the case and published Akon's reprehensible lyrics and a video of his crude animal-like assault in Trinidad. We started banging Verizon's media phones line and today they decide Akon was no longer on their A-List. It's not going to save my kid's generation but eventually these idiots are going to reign in their behavior or else. This isn't morality policing. This isn't telling women...
