    WHAT??? Lyor Cohen didnt have a thing to do with the invention of hip hop. He invented hip hop about as much as Elvis invented rock. What is your source? :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Matter of fact, he has less to do with the invention of hip hop than Elvis did with rock....he never said a rhyme in his life....you were never into hip hop were you..its generations below you so I guess that is why you believe such misinformation...it aint your fault. ;)

    Peace

    Brother James, I do not know who Lyor Cohen is, but I have heard some Doo Woop Bands from the 40's or 50's that were actually FLOWING using rhymes, so they could tehcnically be the creators of hip hop. I will look up Mr. Cohen so I can make a better assesment.

    Lyor owns a record lable that has produced many artists. He is basically Russel Simmons partner...or was. I am not sure about now.


    @James: That was not posed as a question so much as an accusation of some white dud having invented hip hop and us being fools for following the art form. If that was not your intention, I apologize....but it is not beneath many older people, and hip hop haters of all ages to come up with such statements....that is why I responded how I did.

    Lyor Cohen is the jew who ran Def Jam with/for Russell Simmons.
    he is now the head of Warner Bros music. (see the current issue of Vibe)
    when Prof. Giff said something about the jews his career was terminated.
    when hip hop artists denigrate black people their careers are enhanced.

    i ask about Lyor Cohen's role in setting Gansta Rap loose upon the black community.
    the rappers always used to say that they were keeping it real.

    i ask, whose reality?

    do you know Lyor Cohen's role?
    if you do not know, what is your reality based on?

    why are you angry if you do not know?
    have you seen Matrix?, the Manchurian Candidate?

    I'm interested in the nature of reality.
    how do you know what you think you know?
    keeping it real?, really?

    BTW -did an older person hurt you at some point?
    you seem to have age related issues.

    Clearly you do not know and were making comments.....you got some issues yourself bro....I'll not be talking to you any further.

    By the way....my reality is based on the fact that hip hop existed before Lyor ever got involved with Def Jam.....def jam didnt even exist...That I know for a fact.....What do YOU know?????????????????????

    i do notice that simply asking about Lyor Cohen has produced sparks.
    lots of anger but no clear answer to the question.
    that in itself is revealing.

    The fact that you have not said that this was NOT a commentary and not accepted my apology, but instead opted to talk all kinds of arrogant BS is very revealing in itself.
