That kind of indicates on big difference between out there and over here, back then. On the east coast, the "old school" sound, I guess we should say the OLD old school style, of Grandmaster Flash, Whodini, Curtis Blow, & Afrika Bambaataa gave way to a more underground, sample heavy sound that started in 1986, typified by Rakim, BDP, & in '87 with Big Daddy Kane. It seems that West Coast rappers stayed with the "old-old school" vibe all the way up until NWA. In New York, the only...

I believe that America cannot get serious about child sexual abuse because of the fact that there are so many child sexual predators in America in the first place, and because so many are in such 'high' places or have friends in 'high' places, that almost any progress made against predators is stopped or stagnated by people who have a vested interest in curtailing punishments, sentences and laws that should already be in place to put an end to pedophilia in America. So, 'hurt people, do hurt...

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hip_hop Hip hop (stylized as Hip-Hop) is a broad conglomerate of artistic forms that originated within a marginalized subculture in the South Bronx and quickly spread through other parts of New York City such as Harlem among African American and Latino American youth during the late 1970s.[2][3][4][5] It is characterized by four distinct elements, all of which represent the different manifestations of the culture: rap music (oral), turntablism or "DJing"...

Bio "Soul Brother Number One," "the Godfather of Soul," "the Hardest Working Man in Show Business," "Mr. Dynamite" -- those are mighty titles, but no one can question that James Brown has earned them more than any other performer. Other singers were more popular, others were equally skilled, but few other African-American musicians have been so influential on the course of popular music. And no other musician, pop or otherwise, put on a more exciting, exhilarating stage show; Brown's...

If you go back and look at Afrika Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation, you'll see that hip hop was started as a source of peace, love, unity, and having fun. And thats back in 1975 in Brooklyin, before we had Rappers Delight and hip hop started making it into recording studios. People were just doing this stuff in their neighborhoods as a way of having fun and expressing themselves.

“I want him to know how much he damaged me growing up,” 50-year-old Savage told the site. “I was just a child. Why did he take my innocence away? Why did he do this to me?” Bringing out the point, the child abuse or constant sexual abuse as a child i.e. rape can be responsible for some men not growing up to deal with real life issue. As why some who are violated go on to lead violence and unstable lives sexually....cuz this kinda thing isn't talked about. But happens all over the world. When...
