But people idolize him right?

A commercial and Lil Wayne both talk about how cool something is, but because the commercial tell you specifically to buy it that's one thing? Do you not think kids who listen to Lil Wayne don't hear the lyrics or see those pictures and think they need to try it? Humans are impressionable by nature and that's why commercials exists. In fact, that's why marketing companies use rappers in their commercials. Do they do it because these guys are so articulate and good at acting? Or because they have a fan base who will listen to them?
