old news – ll cool j vs. chuck d

Monday, April 4th, 2005 3:54 pm

We already knew this, but Chuck D. is pretty cool:

LL Cool J has come out in support of the US music industry’s legal threats music downloaders. LL was speaking to a Senate committee investigating whether the industry has been too heavy-handed .

“My question is, if a contractor builds a building, should people be allowed to move into the building for free?” he told senators.

But fellow rapper Chuck D, of Public Enemy, said people should be allowed to swap songs on peer-to-peer sites.

“P2P to me means power to the people,” said Chuck D. “I trust the consumer more than I trust the people at the helm of these (record) companies.”

The rap star later added: “LL’s a staunch American…but when you solely have an American state of mind, you’re increasingly becoming a smaller part of the world.”
