so called ghetto names get a bad press. but why? what are people supposed to name their kids? madison? purlease…it’s the last bastion of racism. although the chavs get a similar pasting in the UK for naming their kids after cars and booze.
why can’t people just leave each other alone? you only have to look to celebrities for the stupidest names. apple? brooklyn?
don’t even get me started on bob geldof. the point of this post? well i was scrolling through itunes and realised that ghetto names are no new phenonenom and their owners are responsible for some cool music.
