Imus Getting More Credit Than Due

imus-honky.jpgWow, according to the Associated Press, Don Imus is responsible for cleaning up the profanity and n-words out of hip-hop. At least in the case of Chamillionaire:

But after the success of his last album, he went out on tour and saw mostly white faces lip-synching the epithet along with his lyrics. Now Chamillionaire has had a change of heart for his new album… “I was like, ‘You know what? I’m not going to say the N-word on this one because when I go back on the road, and I start performing, I don’t want them to be saying it, like me teaching them,”‘ he told The Associated Press.

So I wonder how Al Sharpton feels about Imus stealing his thunder…
