Florida Sheriff Protests Ludacris & Kendrick Lamar’s Scheduled Appearance at School Concert

Rather than finding resistance from academic campuses, rap is being discouraged from the Florida Coast University stage by a County Sheriff.

As soon as he heard that the hip-hop artist behind “Shake Your Money Maker,” which included multiple counts of the N-word, would be performing at the school, Mike Scott emailed the institution’s president, Wilson Bradshaw, with the message, “Say it ain’t so.” According to Naples News, Scott was befuddled that a black president of FGCU would invite Ludacris and Kendrick Lamar, knowing “every other word out of their mouth is the N-word, the M-Fer, this ho and that ho, this chick and that chick, violence and references to illegal drugs.”

“We have refused events before. I am not saying I am refusing the event but I hope they understand that public safety is our first concern,” he hinted, although whether that means he will scale back forces or disallow the event altogether is unclear.

Bradshaw wrote, “As a university president – black or white – periodically there are expressed views related to students and faculty that the president doesn’t personally or professionally sanction or share. In this case, our students indicated a strong interest in inviting these performers to Eaglepalooza, and our staff blankures me they are doing everything possible to ensure a safe and enjoyable event for the attendees.”
