I use the word. What would I look like criticizing a rapper for using it?

Most rappers put in the 'conscious' rap bubble really hate it. Talib Kweli, Common, Macklemore, Black Thought have all spoken out against being called conscious rappers. They wanna be human not artificially segregated from everyone else.

Their argument is "what? I can't like going to the club? Or sexing a chick with a big booty? or cursing?"

I think their view would be similar for people thinking they shouldn't use the N word in their music. Chuck D and De La Soul were some of the pioneers of what would later be called conscious rap, and they were using the N word with authority to get their points across.
