Hip-Hop and Herpes: Rap Stars With the STD


The issue of Kris Humphries allegedly transmitting the STD genital herpes to an ex-fling, along with the recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about the astronomical rate of herpes in the black community, should have sounded an alarm about reckless and gratuitous sexual relations and its devastating repercussions.

The CDC released the abysmal statistics that show black women had the highest rate of infection at 48 percent and are “nearly twice as likely as men to be infected.” Furthermore, About 16 percent of Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 are infected with genital herpes, making it one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, U.S. health officials said on Tuesday.

“About 21 percent of women were infected with genital herpes, compared to only 11.5 percent of men, while 39 percent of blacks were infected compared to about 12 percent for whites,” the CDC said in a prepared statement.

If that is not enough of a scare, the following rap stars are allegedly infected with the disease.

    Black people are the main group that’s always running around “oh, eww, icky icky!” about herpes and “outing” and denigrating people that suffer from it but yet still don’t practice safe sex and avoid risky behaviors that would put THEM at risk for it. Can we say ‘hypocrisy’?

    I got diagnosed with herpes type 2 about six years ago, when I was in college and had a stupid one night stand. I know a lot of women will say this but believe me I never did that sort of thing. I jud made a mistake that one time and, suddenly, it seemed like I was going to have to live with the consequences for the rest of my life.

    The awful part was thinking I could never date men again. After all, who wants to date a girl who has blisters around her you-know-what?

    But after someone share this site , everything has changed. Not only was I able to remove all traces of the herpes virus from my body in less than twenty days, but I was also able to start dating again. I even met my soul mate and I’m so happy to say that just last week, in front of many people in a crowded restaurant, he got down on one knee and proposed to me!! This program gave me the chance to be happy again, and to experience true love.
