As you well know I love and respect our women. NWA didn't create the culture. When are people going to
attack the source and not the end result? Nobody EVER looks at the conditions that lead up to a particular culture. They attack culture without ever attacking the forces that led to the culture (sorry for the redundancy)
NWA hip hop/rap didn't land on that culture, the culture landed on NWA and hip hop. Which in reality was a reflection of their/our environment. Hip hop didn't "create" this culture. Did hip hop create the mob mentality
of the 1920's, 30's, 40's and 50's?
Also the sista wants to look at this as a gender specific problem when it is much more than that.
A much more balanced and far less biased take was and is called for on this topic
Sorry brutha..but you're wrong. They are responsible for perpetuating it. And lets be honest, many blacks grow up in the hood and don't do any of the things they say is a part of the hood. Chuck D grew up in the hood but look at what he decided to rap about? We can't make excuses and absolve our own when it comes to something we like, but condemn then, and use the word responsibility when it comes to something we don't like. I'm still trying to figure out what are we defending, and why? Now you want to attack the source right, well why not put that responsibility on the artist? Why don't they go to the source and say that we aren't going to make this type of music anymore?
These rappers know what the deal is and they ain't listening to you, or anyone else that wants the money to stop. Look at what Prince did, and he got what he wanted, and he's still raking in the cash. So again, tell me what are you defending?
Here is another perspective on NWA...
Brutha MS234 this is what I mean about who's responsible and why.
So I ask.....again. Who, and what are you defending?
It's a valid question Elder based on the info I posted.
PE said Fight the power, Can't truss it, and Brothers are going to work it out.
NWA said Ones less "B", Dopeman, and To kill A Hooker.
One doesn't fit the narrative, so that movie isn't going to make money, the other fits it perfectly and a movie was made, and it grossed 56mil the first week.
