    A WORD from your Scrupulous Poet-

    After being an avid follower of rap (hip-hop) and its various trends he expresses the following:

    I’ve listened to your (rappers) many dissertations; now I think it’s clear of a woman’s role.
    She’s to shake booty in the club. She’s to work her body up that pole.
    On her way down she’ll drop it like it’s hot; bend over, touch her toes, spread it and get low. Before the night is over, she will either open her legs or blow.
    Let me ask you something….Is this all our sistas are good fo’?

    Exploitation? Young women are falling into this trap.
    Many, have become a product of these degrading raps.
    B!*#hes and h^*s! Why do our young women accept this title?
    In the midst of this, why do we as a people continue to idle?

    May be your right,
    I can’t say anything about these rappers; maybe I’m just too uptight.
    (Besides, it’s just “entertainment”)
    Alright, it’s just “entertainment”. But why is our “entertainment” reflecting real life?
    I was listening when you said “we can’t let rap take all the blame”.
    I agree. If not for us consumers, most of these artist wouldn’t have a name.
    I’ve heard many positive rappers. In my opinion, most were underrated.
    Under negative influences, our music industry has become inundated (flooded,
    swamped).

    Can we find a healthy balance which speaks the truth?
    Can we find one quickly before our “entertainment” destroys our youth?

    I began this poem, because face to face you probably didn’t want to hear it.
    This, became my only vise to penetrate your spirit.
    I continued writing, to let you know you are not alone in your thoughts.
    (That’s if you identify with this message)
    Am I suggesting we take action?
    Yes, I’m saying we ought!


    *In expressing his views, the author intends to get the reader (you) to think about our music (entertainment) and its impact on our culture. The author believes that continued thinking will lead to positive action!!!*

    Your poet,
    Scrupulous

    I appreciate this poem Brother Scrupulous Poet

    hip-hop as you have spelled it describes "rap" music which is not Hiphop (spelled this way it represents our collective conciousness)

    hip-hop is a genre and is controlled by the mainstream, and no worries we are watching that collapse before our ((((I))))

    We must also beware the "spiritual" pimps and hos dressed in sunday's best fronting and stunting

    of course action is necessary

    And all that is created always returns to that which created it, and since hip-hop came from Hiphop (the conciousness) it will return.

    nuff respect
