This is an opinion of mine that might touch some nerves. Especially the younger generation that have no idea about quality Hip-Hop because it was before their time so they take it as a personal attack on their generation. They are only aware of the hogwash that is being installed in them via the radio and 106 and Park. I forgive you all. You don’t know any better. You obviously had no one older around to guide your taste in real Hip-Hop. I have said it once and I will continue to say it. Hip-Hop is dying! All of the music that is in rotation on the radio is not the only form of Hip-Hop and is a limited and untrue representation. Soljah Boy does not represent real Hip-Hop. I interviewed him three times. Trust me. Although I am happy that a young Black man made it rather than plotting on his next hustle or snatching purses, it is simultaneously discomforting to see real, lyrical, substantial Hip-Hop slowly die as we “super man that hoe”. I am not a part of the porch monkey movement. Lastly, everyone is not meant to be a rapper, basketball player, or any other stereotypical “make it out of the hood” career. There are other avenues. Like anything else your have to work for them. Sorry. I do love Affion Crockett for his fearless honesty!
