Hall interviews Simmons on The Arsenio Hall Show. They talk about Simmons involvement creating a Harriet Tubman prank comedy tape that outraged his fans and the frustration felt by his artists they deemed as degrading.
I’ve done lots of comedy and lots of bad taste. Lots of music and bad taste…lots of poetry that’s offended people. Lots of music that people really felt hurt by but I’ve always stood by it. But this particular piece, when I understood how hurt people were, I pulled it down immediately. I’ve never pulled down a piece of content.
