Many young rappers have found a way to "beat" the system so to speak. To have success on their terms. The snowman represents that more than it does "drugs". It represents the fact that no matter how bad his former life was, no matter how much dirt he did, in the end he was able to be legit without giving up what he feels is his roots. Where he came from. Now like it or lump it; it doesn`t realy matter. Do I agree with selling drugs... No. Do I applaud his ability to turn his life around through art? Yep. I say get over your self righteous selves. He has to eat and so does everyone connected with him. Last time I checked no one was saw a problem with the popularity of mafia figures. Give it some time and the snowman will go the way of huge clock necklaces and leather africa medalions. Never heard of them? My point exactly.

From what I have heard on the billboard charts only a handfull of the rap artists and the songs are good. I find some of them so amazing with how fast they rap and how it flows, but so much of what gets publicity is about drug use, abusing and disrespecting women, fathering children and leaving them behind, going to jail, killing people. WTF? Why would they want to talk about the most depressing and negative stuff? I can understand writing a few raps as a nod to their past and then move on to better topics, but to build a career on such negativity? I realize I may not be "in touch" with the scene or able to comprehend the history of it, but any music genre that is mostly negative turns me off. I don`t have time or emotional energy to steep myself in the ugliness of someones existence.

Don`t call rap a stupid or idiotic genre just because you don`t understand it. It has its low points just like any other genre but it also has some of the most talented lyricists in the music game. And to those of you who disagree please don`t reply by saying whats so talented about talking about b*tches and drugs, that`s all anyone ever quotes. There`s a lot more substance in rap than that.

If your 12 year old+ son comes home w/or asks you to buy a SNOWMAN shirt... well come on now. That should set a huge alarm in ones head. Why would any kid of that age wear a snowman shirt? Do these parents think these kids love frosty the snowman that much? If your this clueless don`t have kids, please. Just google the words "snowman shirt" and look what pops up, it`s really easier than you think it is to be aware of your own children.

I`ve never seen ANYONE wearing this. I don`t think San Diegans would be caught dead in something so tacky.

Ugh, God, another thing for suburban soccer moms to be up in arms about. At least this one is real, I guess . . . if that can be considered an upside. I personally prefer it when they get upset about imaginary things. It`s much more entertaining that way.

The rapper happens to have a yellow snowman, but there are white snowmans, too. I was wondering what it meant because a lot of kids in my school have it.

For those of you who don`t know: On the front of the shirt, there`s the snowman image, sometimes its sparkly, and on the back in big letters it says "I got the snowman".

^^I totally agree wit u. All guys now days either selling that stuff or wanna be rappers now days. I know a lot of ppl that suppose to have a whack azz cd coming out soon. Just cuz they hit it big, dont me the ppl i know are going to. I see kids younger than 12 out on the block wit these loosers. I think ima join the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program. These kids need real role models cuz their parents are too lazy to do it.

I don`t know if the guy wearing it looks more stupid because he has a cute snowman tshirt, or because he has a dopey expression.

Meh, before it was a crabby snowman. After reading that, it is just a crabby snowman with a drug connotation. What a great reason for people to want to wear that shirt. ;p
