‘Jersey Shore’ Star Vinny Makes Ill-Advised Rap Debut

Vinny Guadagnino's rhymes about rape don't go over so well

If only the most offensive part of Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino’s debut rap song “Rack City Bitch” was his insanely weak flow. Or the lyrics, “I ain’t got a girl / You ain’t got a man / I’ve got a date for ya / and it’s in my pants.” But unfortunately, Vinny’s rhymes are a little… rapey. As TMZ points out, it includes the line, “Actin’ like I’m raping it.” Which didn’t go over so well with anti-sexual assault advocates.

“The lyrics in Vinny Guadagnino’s new rap song that glorify rape are ignorant,” a rep for the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) told TMZ. “Trivializing this violent crime sends a dangerous message to the public.” In response, Guadagnino yanked the video and tweeted, “Whoa! Some people really know how to take things out of context ! #LearnToListenToMusic …It was fun though!” Didn’t this guy learn anything from the Situation’s turn on the mic?
