BET Networks hosted its 2010 BET Hip-Hop Awards yesterday. The most interesting part for me was watching Ice Cube and his sons and Rev Run and his sons do a rap battle. What’s all of this got to do with law? What! You haven’t heard? Rappers want to be lawyers and lawyers want to be rappers. In fact, rappers and lawyers not only rhyme but both are in the business of word play and word battle. (BIG GASP, depending on who you are). Moving on. I enjoy rap a lot and the video below illustrates my point on the wordplay and the breadth of topics/issues rappers, like lawyers, can cover in a short time. By the way, in the entertainment field, it seems rappers always need lawyers more than other entertainment professionals. Hmmm . . . I guess I made my point, rappers and lawyers do go together like bread and butter. 🙂

p.s. I am a big fan of Diggy Simmons. What a talented young rapper!
