    Hip Hop dies
    even as its savior tries
    to resuscitate it back to life
    Hip Hop still lives under the knife
    of mainstream
    feeding of it like it was whip cream
    cause true talent goes unnoticed
    and the real brothas think theyve already lost the mission so they lose focus
    feeling that the revival is hopeless
    but someday
    some way
    hip hop will make it again with a power play
    from its chosen one
    maybe an egyptian gods son
    like the star of Ausar

    i loved this poem, and it was sooo true. You know i think hip hop was at it's greatest when acts like pharcyde, de la soul, dell, jungle brother,tribe called quest and many others from that time period were around. but now, i just don't know, it's gotten too main stream. there are still some true to life ARTIST out there. But very few. Much love to you for this flow.

    I would like to think that true talent always shines through, but perhaps it's not too late. I hear what you're saying.

    I don't think Hip Hop is dead at all, Nas is ill but what about artist like Talib Kweli, Common, Mos Def, and the Roots they do make that effort. Even some of the mainstream artist are starting to do stuff like Jadakiss with "Why" look at Nick Cannon with his new track. Hip Hop is coming back.

    But I got to say I like your style. Big ups

    I hear Eminem is retiring soon, so Hip Hop might have a chance!

    I like how you noticed that hip hop needs and soon will receive a well awaited revival.
    I know there has got to be some real talent out there to give that genre a wake up call.
