Eric Benet has urged music lovers to beware of black artists who normalise anti-black violence with their music and visuals.
Find out below…
His comments come after the music industry power player Lyor Cohen was criticised for the part he is said to play in polluting the minds of impressionable black children and teens.
I turned that Lyor Cohen interview off at the beginning when he implied that Black people don’t know the history of our own music…like how don’t we know about The Gap Band, Lakeside, etc. 🤔😒🙄

That Lyor Cohen interview on Breakfast Club only supports what I was saying before in regards to the music industry and youth violence/drug proliferation. Look at his response… Labels endorse acts who rap this way by providing the rope to hang your culture. #Complicit pic.twitter.com/sB9EVhp61V

Every time you hear a “black” rapper calling black people N****rs , or women B***hs, please remember this man #LyorCohen . He is one of the music executives who promote this negative portrayal of black people,.. https://t.co/2P5cS2e9Nq

Let me know when the music industry stops promoting the n-word, (that slave word) and killing Black people. Then we can say the tide is turning. @lyorcohen Imagine the outrage if the music industry defamed & promoted killing Jews and gays. #BlackTwitter #ADL #NAACP @NBCNews

"Did Lyor Cohen break a rock group that you know of?….There's always some white man in charge of black people." – Dame Dash

The move Lyor Cohen pulled on Chuck D and Professor Griff to destroy Public Enemy is the same 'divide and conquer' tactic he pulled on Jay-Z and Dame Dash. Griff and Dame were field negroes betrayed by house negroes Chuck and Jay for a piece of the pie.

Lyor Cohen went on the Breakfast Club and said rappers promoting drug use are junkies. Nothing good can come from them.
When asked, isn’t it hypocritical, that he continues to sign these rappers & promote their music?
He said, “No”
😂😂😂Dame Dash never lied. #CultureVultures
