I think that this hiphop music generation does not involves education whatsoever of this error because the corporate mainstream music companies has the power and is dumbing among young minorities as well as middle-class whites because there is no Consciousness‎ of peace gathering (Ciphas) of groups, and relevancy among our youth in messaging on politics in capital figures without managing their minds to think further.I think the results is not understanding the education portion of corporate mainstream companies controlling radio airplay cannot embraced socially and consciously of the older hiphop generation fans that refused to take part of the younger generation fans side because they are not well developed and is not clear to understand theirviews in balancing the hiphop music culture which is the education portion of it ((Science, Math, & English).

Journalists and Critics however would have you believe that he was some sort of Hip Hop Shakespeare, the same journalists and critics who would look dumbfounded if you mention Black Moon or Smoothe Da Hustler. When Hip Hop was in it’s golden age they were probably listening to Oasis or Blur in their car ride to school. What do they know about Hip Hop?

This is not to say that Rap and Hip Hop has always stayed the same since it’s conception. Hip Hop has always evolved with the times from it’s origins in block parties, break dancing and DJ’s in the late 70’s, to the social commentary in the 80’s. Even when abstract concepts such as blending martial arts with black culture like The Wu-Tang Clan or mixing Rap with Horror as the Gravediggaz proved In the early 90’s; the juxtaposition always complemented and acknowledged it’s roots. But we have now reached a time when if you look back at over a decade of Hip Hop all you see is watered down Disco-like electronically-created Muzak lacking any substance or variation. I

Your just being an old 'fuddy duddy' , we've seen your likes before.

'During the 1950’s many parents did not like Rock and Roll because they thought that it caused juvenile delinquency. At the time the music contained sexual connotation, this vulgarism and suggestive choice of words made the teens want to listen to it more because their parents did not approve and teens felt like they had something to belong to. Many parents at the time gave their children ultimatums to stop listening to the music but it was unsuccessful. Parents feared that their children would start to act and dress like these musicians. So, parents tried to ban Rock and Roll music from many radio stations at the time. Bruce Tucker author of “Tell Tchaikovsky the News: Postmodernism, Popular Culture, and the Emergence of Rock and Roll” say in his journal “Urging juke box operators to purge “immoral” records…brings out animalism and vulgarity” (40-41). This refers to the parent generations hate for Rock and Roll music because these parents thought Rock and Roll was a bad influence on their children. Parents feared that with increasing crime rates that their children would take up the acts of the musicians they loved and the criminals.'

OK......I feel were you coming from, but I'm not the 50's error, but based on this subject, I'm bringing up,In the debate like this....There's appears... a disagreement..uumh....I wouldn't argued with this issue because consciously you relate in the mainstream music for high media standards of corporate record companies....Many followers......problably like you as well as teens problably or may not yet know they are getting into the ssytem of rock n roll without understanding the roles of artist not giving the direction of self-explanitory views in their lyrics and the vibes shows negativity from parents who may not underrstand what to predict the music of this particular trend is coming to. You may educate me n believing your self-preservation of followers vho view themselves based on what the music you hear that corprate companies are soreading for dollar values brings upon the examples of possible motivement of nsecurity and lack of community support like yourself...???

A lot of kids want to be rappers these days. I feel like it's more about the act of making music rather than the lyrical content; they're used to spouting crazy lyrics without thought. When people submit music to Push Power Promo, they talk all types of drugs, violence, and cursing but then a lot of them are A students in college. It's just expression.

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
