"I wouldn't mind paying more in taxes if it went to the things that really mattered," the rapper told CNN in a recent interview. "If it went to education, to people in poverty, I wouldn't mind. I think most people with a conscience, with some integrity and moral fiber wouldn't have any problem paying more taxes."

Although Hov stated he's willing to pay more, he also added that he'd like to see exactly where the extra money was going.

"It should be clearly defined where all the money is being allocated," he added. "You can't understand paying so much in taxes and things are not improving."
