Taken over by who? It's more like we just stopped playing with it one day and asians and white kids fount it looked both ways and dipped...
Stop acting like we were out their break dancing and racist crews came through and took over the block, cause you know that's not what happened. Black people gave up on hip hop.
You say hip hop dead and people always wanna talk about jews and corporations, but that has nothing to do with hip hop culture, whats crippling the music is the sad fact that most people think it truly does.
Rock & Alternative music outsell every other genre on average almost 4x over, and its for a good reason. What about playing an instrument, or joining a band has anything to do with money? Their goal is to make music and then all the other stuff comes next. Music is the culture and they expound upon that.
Rappers got it ass backward though, they think that money is the culture, but in actuality if it werent for the culture they wouldnt have any at all, so its like what do you stand on. If its not about the music as so many artist have made it blatantly clear in the last decade or so, then what is it about?
The blame is one hundred percent on our shoulders, and i would feel embarrassed trying to point the finger elsewhere. We have consciously transformed hip hop culture into: fucking bitches, doing drugs, committing crimes and getting a shit ton of money all while seemingly living in a never ending party...
Thats not even real life, let alone hip hop... There is a lot of healing to be done yall. The seeds have been planted but I'm not so sure they'll ever sprout.
Had Tyler not fucked up as well, Wayne wouldnt have lost his deal... This a hip hop crackdown, seems like we need some better dudes repping our culture than the idiots who keep selling it out to companies that sell death.
Fuck Rick Ross, Tyler and Wayne, they should be happy they were relieved of the blood money they were so eagerly accepting.
What he is saying is true but I don't agree that we will ever lose hip hop.
When Robert Johnson n them started the blues or even when Chuck Berry and them were pioneering rock and roll, they were virtually unknown on a large scale in the U.S. till the British started wanting to be black and came back over here performing our music
Hip hop though has already sold 100 of millions of records performed primarily by black artist and nobody will ever forget that.
They might control the money but we still control our minds
