Rapper Cassidy is taking aim at Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling over the racist comments that earned Sterling a lifetime ban from the NBA. The emcee targeted Sterling on his remix to "Move That Dope."
Meantime, many in the hip-hop community praised NBA Commission Adam Silver for punishing Sterling with a lifetime ban from NBA activities. Rick Ross turned over his own nickname to Silver, calling him a "Boss." Ja Rule and Joe Budden also had kind words for the commissioner. But not everyone was satisfied with the ban. Using the hashtag "Smarter Than A Ban," Public Enemy rapper Chuck D suggested that instead of banning Sterling, he should be forced to build up L.A.'s Skid Row with "massive affordable housing on his dime." Killer Mike went further, saying that the ban shouldn't be considered a "win" for the African-American community.
