"This kid is the coolest"
My young people are so confused now days. What is hip-hop? lots of people don't even know. Do I? Wiki says "Hip hop is a cultural movement which developed in New York City in the early 1970s primarily among African Americans and Latin Americans. Hip hop's four main elements are MCing (often called rapping), DJing,graffiti writing, and breakdancing. Other elements include beat boxing, hip hop fashion, and slang. Since first emerging in the Bronx, the lifestyle of hip hop culture has spread around the world." I think hip-hop is when a lyricist speaks firmly on issues of the world and life experiences. Not about how much money you have, how many hoes you got, how many diamonds
are on your chain, or how ya chevy sittin high. Lots of rappers have come to rap for what appeals to the new school. I have no respect for those rappers. I wish i
was born in 1980, hip-hop was on 1000 back then. I get down wit A Tribe Called Quest, Common, Black Star, C.L. Smooth & Pete Rock, Das EFX, De La Soul, LL Cool J, Mos Def, Nas, Mc Lyte, Queen Latifa, The Pharcyde, Run DMC, B.I.G., Skee Low, Slick Rick, The Roots, KMD, Q-Tip, Souls of Mischief... I could go on forever. I can live of this music alone. Lets get at the new school.I can rock wit Charles Hamilton(even tho he went on that girl and she stole him in the face). Its sad that lots of people try to label him as wack. Those are the people who dont know any better. So sad lol. But n.e. way I was saying .... Jay-Z (but he been at it for a min.), Kanye, Lupe, Pharrell, and there are a few others. Theres plenty of sick artist that are underground that really deserve credit. They not getting no play cuz the majority of hip-hop listeners have been brain washed. Come young people speak out!!
