    The most positive reflection of our culture in hip-hop today is all I have to say.

    I learn more about myself each and everyday. If you haven't heard it, then I recommend you hit up his new video through yahoo.com under the music category.

    peace

    Although Nas's infamous quote in his new song is really nothing new, it is quite interesting and motivates me to look deeper beyond the song itself. I think that I know why he poses
    reference to the Egyptian culture.

    He says:

    "...Egypt is the place where Alexander The Great(not a black man by the way) went was shocked to see that the mountains had black faces shot up the nose to impose basically what you still see today you see"

    The Sphinx in fact does not have a nose and researchers are still trying to configure its image until this day. Irregardless, it is quite apparent that the Egyptian culture has brought major influence to our country. For example, Mount Rushmore(located in Keystone, SD) stands as a memorial of the establishment of the United States of America. The same four presidents seen on the four order of coins yet Abe Lincoln is faced forward this time. How
    much proof does a Black man need to believe that our current state of being is more than simply ancient history? I agree with NAS. "If the truth is told, then kids can grow." If we knew more about our GOD given talents, then it's possible that we might actually value ourselves more and move forward.
