Rappers are Role Models

Over Thanksgiving my nephew was asked me if I had an iPod, and then proceeded to ask if I happened to have any 50 Cent, Chris Brown, Chamillionaire, and others on it. I was shocked -- I consider myself fairly in-the-know when it comes to music, and I've hardly heard of Chamillionaire. How did an eight year old know about him then?

I guess it's the phenomenon known as the internet. Oh yeah, and MTV. It's too bad that MTV has become the Us Weekly of television. I still remember the first time I saw Thriller on MTV. Man, was I in awe (and a little scared too). Whatever happened to those days?
