|"Accidental Racist" by B. Paisley, LL Cool J, & LT Miller|
There are a lot of rappers Brad Paisley could have asked a question like this to, or, with; rappers who made social justice part of their message through their careers. LL Cool J is not one of them (Paisley likely considered Tone Loc, Young MC and Will Smith but considered Salt-n-Pepa too political for his taste).
A more cynical blogger might suggest that LL offered Paisley insulation and quasi-credibility without challenging the song's point of view. Paisley said the song wasn't a stunt but, remarkably, he hasn't revisited this topic (but there's still plenty of time).
Neither used up their esteem with me although LL might be on thin ice (it's the Grammy hosting thing, he's just not doing it for me).
