MARYLAND – The NAACP is receiving criticism for showcasing different Hip Hop acts at their upcoming “NAACP Image Awards” including Jaz-Z, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj. Rev. Delman Coates, a pastor of the Mt. Ennon Baptist Church in Clinton, Maryland has directly addressed the civil rights groups choice of performers.

AllHipHop News reports:

“On one side these are young black men that are great business men, but on the other end it is like the tobacco business,” said Rev. Lucious Smith, pastor of Pasadena Friendship Baptist Church. “In the end you get cancer.”

Coates, who heads up the Enough is Enough Campaign for Corporate Responsibility in Entertainment, said the battle with the NAACP is not about Hip-Hop music.

Rev. Coates said he is not against Hip-Hop, but he said the NAACP could do a better job picking out artists who have a more positive message than the 2011 nominees.
