*Rapper Twista has responded to church leaders in Chicago who launched a billboard campaign that announces a number of hip hop acts as "trash" and degrading to women.     

      The Faith Community of Saint Sabina church put up 20 billboards throughout Chicago urging people to "stop listening to trash" and listed Twista, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg and other artists as rappers to avoid.     

      Twista, born and raised in Chicago, says rappers are being unfairly targeted for the ills of society.      

      "People need to stop blaming music for the things that go wrong because it's the people doing things that are doing them and not the music," he said, according to WENN. "The money from those billboards could easily be going to help make the schools in Chicago better, which will help make the city better."
