Why are there so many rappers in the movies and on sitcomes than r&b artists? Even in the past has there been any R&B artists in the movies or television. Im not complaining. But my reason is that these rappers get hired because they know a big share of the audience will more than likely be kids and hopefully Black kids. They want us to idolize these rappers because most of the women portray to be hoeish or nice and purky. Nice and purky means acting like alot of White girls do with absolutely no soul. Most of the men rap actors are the ones that like those kind of women.
The spiritual aware rappers I would bet for the most part have had sitcome and movie leading role offers but probably turned them down to avoid a role displaying bad stereotypes or being part of a like kind of movie.
Lauryn Hill in the movie "Sister Act" is somewhat of an exception I think.
