10 Rappers and Singers Embracing the Wise Words of Louis Farrakhan
Admit it, you look to your favorite artists for guidance at times. If you are going through a break up there’s a song for that. If you need to be inspired and uplifted, there is the perfect tune for that. And if you just want to get ratchet and twerk it out, there’s a soundtrack for the moment. But just as much as you use music as a source of inspiration, rappers and singers need seek words of wisdom as well. Minister Louis Farrakhan is their go-to guy.
With the increasing violent climate occurring in the U.S. as of late, including the most recent racially-charged mass murder in a Charleston, S.C. church, the #BlackLivesMatter campaign is stronger than ever and people like Minister Farrakhan are helping to spread the word. The 20-year anniversary of the Nation of Islam’s Million Man March is approaching in October and Farrakhan is already reaching out to some of the most influential men and women in America to promote his #JusticeOrElse campaign.
Over the last month, he's been on a tour to promote the anniversary rally, which goes down on Oct. 10. Farrakhan recently held a meeting in Atlanta with rappers including K Camp, 2 Chainz and Rick Ross, among others, to discuss his plans for the 2015 Million Man March and get them on board with the movement. The union came as no surprise as Farrakhan has been offering advice to the hip-hop and R&B community alike for decades. In fact, the respected 82-year-old leader of the Nation of Islam is so well connected he’s been popping up all over Instagram.
