When Afrocentric Art Goes Wrong.

As far as can be surmised, this is a Tyrese Gibson original.

From his Twitpic:

This came to me in a DREAM it’s MALCOLM-X Baptizing TUPAC and it’s called “WHAT IF” A lot of questions ran through my mind, What if they met? What if they had joined forces to empower black people? What if?? What if??

Indeed. What if?

  1. I’m not familiar with who TUPAC is, but it’s ridiculous to show Malcolm X baptizing anyone considering that he was Muslim.

  2. LJ says:

    Do Muslims get baptized? I assumed not but…as you say, “when Afro-centric art goes wrong”

  3. Ash says:

    So Malcom X was Christian now? FAIL!
    It’s a shame because the artist obviously has talent.

    He should have stuck to singing about Coke on the bus.

    Dead and gone.

    If they met, who would have the greater influence on chic black masculinity? Would Tyrese grow out his hair and get a goatee?
