Faith Community of Saint Sabina Thinks Lil Wayne and Others Are Trash

Saint Sabina puts up billboards targeting negative music

Starting today, twenty billboards will be going up throughout the city of Chicago denouncing artists that demean women and perpetuate violence. Some of the billboards are already posted.

Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of Saint Sabina church said, "If we are going to end the violence and the disrespect of women, we must fight every form of negativity, including the music industry."

The billboards read: "Stop Listening To Trash" naming ten present day disrespectful rappers.

Billboard locations:
87th & Vincennes 79th & Normal
79th & Ada 74th & Racine
79th & Ashland Halsted & Garfield
103rd & Wallace 79th & Western
119th & Wallace 107th & Michigan
115th & Forest 63rd & Wood
14th & Kedzie Keeler & Roosevelt
Kedvale & Ogden Fillmore & California
Ogden & Western Polk & California
16th & Pulaski 16th & Karlo
According to church spokesman Vince Clark, the rappers targeted by the include 50 Cent and G-Unit, Nelly, Ludacris, Fat Joe, Lil Wayne, Twista Snoop Dogg and “all negative rappers.” I would have thought a church in Chicago would have at least over looked Twista. If anyone can get a picture please let me know.
