Blues legend Bo Diddley has publicly come out against rap music. The 74-year-old took time during a recent performance at Dunnellon High School in Dunnellon Florida, to tell the audience of his disdain for hip-hop. He warned the audience that rap is a passing thing and it is not “going to last as long as I have.” 

"First of all, you can't understand what it is and it has no meaning," Diddley told the  audience last Thursday. 

Diddley went after some of the questionable moral subject matter with popular rap music, especially how women are treated in rap lyrics. "The lyrics are very disgusting because you are a person, and a person deserves respect," he said. "I have daughters, my mother was a woman, and I don't like what I'm hearing." 

Diddley told the students that they have to work hard to make in this world but it can be done legally, without resorting to the gansta lifestyle promoted by some rap artists. Diddley encouraged the students to look within themselves to find their own talents to utilize in the future to make a living. "You've got to hustle, man," he said. "There's a legal way to hustle."

It wasn’t all talk with Diddley as he introduced the students to some of him music during the appearance. He even broke out a rap of his own. "Some folks say old Bo Diddley can't rap. I'm Bo Diddley and I ain't taking no nap." .
