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?

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

  • LJ

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

  • Ash

    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?
