David Cameron Vs Rapper Over Violent Lyrics

Taken from Sky News

An American rapper will meet Conservative leader David Cameron after he claimed the music genre encouraged people to carry weapons. Rhymefest - real name Che Smith - asked to talk over a "cup of tea" after hearing the politician's criticism of DJs for playing violent songs. Such music "encourages people to carry guns and knives", he told Radio 1 earlier this year.

He also suggested it should be banned from the airwaves.

Rhymefest, 29, who prefers to avoid such subjects, wrote to Mr Cameron challenging him to sit down with a rapper face to face.

A spokesman confirmed the pair would meet later today - probably in the Tory leader's office in the House of Commons.

But Labour MP Stephen Pound told the Daily Mail it was a "step too far" in Mr Cameron's efforts to win the youth vote.
