Bun B Speaks on Penn State Scandal

Bun B Speaks on Penn State Scandal

"We gotta protect kids at all costs."

Published November 12, 2011

From Occupy Wall Street to Drake, Southern rap godfather Bun B can be counted on to speak wisdom on any subject. So it's no surprise that he made too much sense when asked about the Penn State pedophilia scandal. 

"We gotta protect kids at all costs," Bun told True Stories Radio in a recent interview. "Penn State got a big game against Nebraska this weekend, but who gives a f---, man? They over there letting n---as touch kids. So at the end of the day, I respect Joe Paterno and his legacy. I respect Penn State and everything that they have done and their national championship. But what I don't and never could respect is n---as letting children be out there… Kids can't protect themselves. A 10-year old kid can't fight a grown man if he tried to sexually abuse him."

Switching gears, the UGK MC also responded to Slaughterhouse's recent statement that if the supergroup were to recruit a Southern rapper to be its fifth member, it would be him. "[They're] some of the greatest lyricists we got in the game right now," Bun said. "Really, having all four of those cats together—with them and Yela[wolf]—they got a mean lineup over there at Shady Records. I respect those dudes, I respect their grind, I respect their hustle, and I respect their talent. If I could get down with a league of gentlemen like that, then I wouldn't be mad at all."

Neither would we.
