Q Are Action Bronson's Lyrics Hate Speech? Jun 1, 2015 | 11:14Rapper Action Bronson has attracted the ire of activists who want to squeeze him out of Toronto's upcoming North By Northeast (NXNE) festival. They say his lyrics are violently misogynistic, and take issue with songs like Consensual Rape.

Rodrigo Bascunan and Anupa Mistry join Shad to discuss the issue.
