I'm not into that murder music either. However, there are academic professors trying to insist to look beyond the words and see the message. I told one of them that words are powerful so no I'm not looking for no message cuz there isn't one. These fools wanna call women out their names and use profanity cuz for the most part? THEY CANNOT READ!!!! Or write. There's this guy in Cali called Nipsey Hussle from the Los Angeles area who bought a Fatburger franchise...a popular burger joint in the hood. But on the custom t-shirt? He spelled Crenshaw wrong. You think that fool noticed? Hell no. And the employees probably were too afraid of losing their jobs to say anything. But that's where the poison in our black culture is going. Taking ownership to something that doesn't belong to them....like African American music and then squat and shyte on it as if it is nothing. I am insulted to say the least. I am so embarrassed by this new generation of young black fools. Hopefully the real black folks in this youth generation will find a way to eliminate these monsters and black people can begin to progress again. Cuz we are being sabotaged by our OWN young people. They don't get it and that's the REAL shame.
And yes I like some of those artists you mentioned. And as a child, Elvis Presley was someone we all looked up to in our household. He was the shyte back then. We didn't have anyone else to slobber over. And yep he was handsome as hell to be a white guy but I heard he has Native American and some black in him-which his family denied but you can see it. Not too many white man with dark hair look that good. I don't know many.....YOU. Elvis was before his time as why he was sooooooooooo popular. See music if it's real? Will inspire you not incite you to kill. That's not music. And I really do feel sorry for this generation in terms of the music they are forced to hear.
I got in a debate about sampling. Which I call the stealing of other people's music. Chick said rappers were paying for those samples. I said NO THEY WERE NOT!!! In the beginning hoodrat DJs and Black record moguals BULLIED black artists so much....that these artists were too scared to protest. But not James Brown. He said mofo yall gonna give me my money. And not gonna use my shyte unless I say so. And guess what? They paid him. He set the stage for others to get their money too. And the reason why he was so successful? He wasn't AFRAID of those ignorant fools. Plus he was the catalyst to the Black Power movement....so they had to give it to him. As why I always say especially in this time and place....you have to be BOLD with your shyte and not allow ANYONE to dim your LIGHT. James Brown didn't. And neither should any one else. This is the time to scream OUR VOICE, stand in our truth and be seen as PROUD Black folks. Cuz those ignorant ass rappers who STOLE black beats are the REASON why black culture is failing today. Those mofos right there are the CANCER in the black community. They set the stage for cultural disrespect and I hate their mofo asses soooooooooooooooo much I can even look at them when I see them on the street cuz they have brought soooooooooooooo much harm to our neighborhoods that was once kinda safe. They are the ones who need to be lynched, tarred and feathered like massa used to do us during Jim Crow but of course the opposite is happening....they are honored by the monsters who held us in slavery....cuz now they ie, these rapping fools are holding us hostage by their dysfunctional murder incite music called rap. But!
