    How is it cultural appropriation when whites (and latinos for that matter) were a part of it from day one?

    Nigga WHITES WERE NOT IN IT FROM DAY ONE they jumped on it to get money and fame. Well after all the arts of hip hop were established

    Latinos however that another matter

    The core elements of hip hop are B-boying, Grafitti, Turntablism, and Rapping.

    NYC's B-boying borrowed heavily from LA's locking. The Campbell Lockers, later named just The Lockers, was a dance crew from LA that originated pop-locking that had among it's original members in 1971(and throughout the 70's) Toni Basil, the white chick that went on to 1-hit wonder fame with the song "Hey Mickey" in '81. Plenty of those old NYC B-Boy crews had whites in their rosters with a lot of them being chicks.

    White Graf artists were around in NYC back in the early 70's doing work right alongside Black and Latino artists. Cats like Bil Rock, Min, and a whole slew of other white dudes were very active bombing back in the day and very much integrated into the Graf scene.

    DJ's? From the late 70's throughout the 80's there's always been a few white cats though they were always overshadowed by Black and Latino DJ's.

    Rappers: This is the sole place where Black men had exclusivity with the formation of hip hop. Granted, white cats were a part of the early hip hop sound of they late 70's and early 80's as the creators of some of hip hop's most memorable joints from the early 80's (like the aforementioned Man Parrish, Gordon Bahary, and Arthur Baker), but as far as MC's go this was the Black man's stronghold until 1983 when the Beastie Boys dropped "Cooky Puss".

    In the early 80's there was almost no money in hip hop and the only fame there was to be had was likely local to your immediate area or region. They didn't do it for fame or money, but to say "I did that".

    You can't have it both ways. You can't say your Mt Rushmore is Pac, Nas, Jay and Big in one breath and in the next breath say that older people don't have a valid opinion regarding Hip Hop, new or old.

    Nas, Jay, Big and 2Pac were born between 1968 and 1973. Their ages range between 44 and 49.

    There isn't anybody born after 1990 that is going to replace those four on Mt Rushmore.

    Cube >>> Nas

    Shutcho yo old ass up

    Cube is more impactful to the genre than Nas will ever be..

    Exactly... Cube because is from the West Coast.... "The Reason Community" on This site suffers from East Coast Bias syndrome.

    And you suffer from "I flunked 4th grade English syndrome"; what's your point?

    Do you not see the picture of him grabbing her right above your post?

    I'm speaking in general terms, not just about Al Franken. But even in his case, does the pic tell the whole story? Was she asleep or did she blink? If you gonna come out years after-the-fact and claim some shit you had better have more than a pic of the person in question grabbing handfuls of body armor.
