I think I agree with more of Macklemores points in the OP than Jermaine's points. Notorious Big was "black and ugly as ever" and had no problem getting on. Same with Wayne and countless other dark skinned rappers.

Light skinned rappers aren't a big deal.



Now if he was talking about women then it might hold more water.



u don't believe it's easier for lightskin rappers to be successful since theyre more palatable to the larger (non black) public?

Male rappers? No. Just as I don't believe it's easier for a light skinned basketball player to be accepted by the public via endorsements, popularity, etc...cough Michael Jordan..Magic Johnson...Shaq... More or less, I don't think the public cares too much about how dark their black male entertainers are...they want them to entertain them. I mean Tyler The Creator, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne all have/had big brand endorsements to help sell products to non black people.

I think it matters for women of color in entertainment..since the topic of "beauty" comes into the picture.
