Nas Not Welcome at VT Show

by

NasAlmost four months after the horrific Virginia Tech shootings, where 33 students were gunned down on the campus by a disgruntled student, a concert in their honor is slated to take place on September 6th. But just days after the bill was announced, the community-healing efforts hit a snag. In addition to gluten-free granola acts like Dave Matthews and John Mayer (granted he keeps his stand-up to himself), New York rapper Nas is also set to perform. Now a spokesperson for the families of the victims has expressed their collective displeasure with the idea of rapper performing, given the nature of his lyrics, which they feel “are indicative of the moral decay in our society that contributes to acts of violence,” says Vincent Bove. While we applaud Nas for his community-oriented efforts, is a hand-picked set in order? Do you think the victims’ families are being overly sensitive? [Idolator/Image: Getty]
