New Orleans bred emcee Juvenile recently sat down in an exclusive interview with Hip-Hop Wired to discuss his feelings on the oil spill that surrounds his home state as well as his take on the arrest of the police officers who murdered countless Hurricane Katrina victims during the storm.
In regards to the killings by the police officers, Juve states that he “wasn’t surprised” because the senseless acts of violence by police officers is something that has plagued the New Orleans’ hoods for years.
“I really am not shocked that they got caught,” Juvenile said. “We have been telling people this for years. I am more surprised that people were shocked more than anything because if they had been listening to us back then the people may still be alive today.”
As for the oil spill Juvenile is convince that it might be time to pack up and leave his home town:
“… Basically with one leak the oil spill killed New Orleans, so in my opinion the smartest thing for anyone to do would be to move away, honestly that is what I am looking to do because there will only be so long before the oil starts to affect our water and what can we do then..die and that’s what will happen if we don’t leave.”
