So we finally made it. We are now at the point in hip-hop where the rappers are getting so damn big that they can engage in verbal combat with our so called leaders. Sure we've had rappers before go back and forth with politicians and such but its always the rappers that are so down with the militant movement that the conversation gets washed away. But when the number 1 artist in the country puts it on his album that you a crook it tends to fester as the album gets bigger. If you haven't heard there's video below but this will not just go away like Al Sharpton would like it to.
Now some of you may think itâ€™s disrespectful but we have been lead astray by these leaders for so long that sometimes you really think they are getting a lot done. When in fact they actually are double agents operating off of greed. This is just my opinion. Think about it. How long have we had black colleges? How long have we had black millionaires and such but we cant fix the poverty.
You see rappers are changing the face of America just like athletes did at first. Remember when you were growing up. Every brotha in the hood wanted to play ball. But now you know more new rappers than football players, basketball, etc. Like you weren't thinking about the black people in St. Louis till Nelly popped up. You never gave a damn about your brothers in the Carolinas till Petey Pablo came about. You still have no clue of what life is like in Arkansas. But itâ€™s all changing because of hip-hop. The only time these fake leaders go is when something like Jena 6 happens and they can get a check for showing up.
So now is a new day when it comes to media attention given to rappers and with them come their opinions. This is the first time you've heard Lil' Wayne be directly political but it won't be the last. He's finally getting from under Babyâ€™s wings. And with that will come social commentary and a whole new sense of manhood and responsibility. Al Sharpton is blowing it off but thatâ€™s 420,000 people and still counting that have now heard a 2 min infomercial on black corruption in politics. Your local senator and governors, and representatives are next.
Iâ€™m telling ya this is something that will explode, as we get closer to every street rapper criticizing this current structure we have in America. Thatâ€™s why certain rappers stay out of politics. They are no better than Al. They work together to play dumb. It all goes back to the money. What are your thoughts?
This weekend Birthday Bash in ATL will bring about another shift in the game also. Since it's tomorrow without spoiling the surprise both T.I. and Shawty Lo have a few things up their sleeve. But it won't be beef oriented. Itâ€™s all about the people and bringing music that the people want to hear regardless of what the industry execs say. You see the greatest thing about southern hip-hop is we actually have a chance to preserve what happens to our peers. Let's just say one legendary group of pioneers will have new life in their career where it has been damaged by the machine several times. And a young gun who just doesnâ€™t give a fu*k will get another chance at reclaiming his spot as the kid who turned ATL upside down with a song that captured the true heart of the American ghetto. ;o)
