Rap Guide to Evolution was terrible; I had to walk out. And it sounds terrible on this radio show right now. How was he asked to be on this show?!!

NOOOooo, you should not have tampered with this, the heart of the rap culture, it is NOT about literature but street life...there will be no evolution to "lit hop"--"lit hop" really? This is horrible, I hope the real Mr. Simmons is listening. *turning the radio all the way down"...poof!

Very clever, am enjoying his music. Believe it or not I am a Christian who believes in creation but knows how to enjoy music and art.
