Bill Cosbey is about 20 years behind fello comedian Rodney Dangerfield, who made a rap song 'No Respect' long long ago...Very crude video, in typical Rodney tradition..

If it turns out to be bashing the poor or underpriviledge it will not get my money! Bill Cosby needs to clean up his act a bit more.

I am sure he can find some better things to do with his time.

If the 'poor' and 'underprivalidged' would listen to him, they wouldn't be poor and underprivalidged.

Quick making excuses for the poor, if you truly cared for them you'de give them some tough love, and make them stand on their feet and walk...

And in the long run they'de thank you for it...

I loved those banana JELLO Puddin Pops. If he can bring those back I'll play his album and even give one to everyone on my Christmas list this year.

I think being the kind of life Bill has live he should keep his rapping to himself, He has never learned the old lesson that it's the life you live that speaks for you. If he wants to do something give to some-worthy causes and keep his mouth closed.

How do you equate Bill Cosbey rapping about a positive message to pole dancing? Please tell me your not that ignorant...

is he gonna be dancing like the gang-bangers ?

There is a wanted poster out for this old geezer.
He apparently escaped from the Cukoos Nest Sanitarium.

Perhaps he was abducted again by an alien space craft.

Get it through your head, rap can be whatever the author wants it to be...

One can rap to the melody of Beetoven if one chooses....rap is just poetry to a beat or rythmn...you can rap about positive things also,
sorry that your only exposure to rap is negitave vile street rap..
