    what happens when you ritualize negativity? When you rehearse murder and insults for fun..

    Another word for those who would do harm to each other, not resolve their differences and defend their own communities from outside enemies:

    Cowards!

    Or Traitors...

    Or maybe both!

    The Clarence Thomas types just play the same roles via different means and to advance their own dreams/schemes...

    Fanon said/wrote/etc. 'the slave masters know the slaves well--because they created them!'

    Or is there a lot that gangsta rap videos etc. promote that isn't just excuses for being inferior ad naseum--another means /ways/etc. to hype 'staying in your place(s)'?

    Who controls the main means/ways/etc. of distribution/production of that stuff:

    White media execs...

    Not Puffy and Company...

    I haven't watched the video yet, but i for one have never said it wasn't a part of the problem. In fact, i have stated that i don't even listen to it because the lyrics are so ridiculously violent. I have stated repeatedly that it is not the foundation, or source of our problem. Rap or Hip Hop are not the reasons black people started killing and disrespecting each other on such a grand scale.

    In fact, Hip Hop was more about loving your culture and an extension of the black power movement thru music which also included our latino family. Rap has been used to try and wash the positive images of Hip Hop totally away to keep us divided and some of the older folk have fallen for the okie doke simply because they don't understand the difference between the two.

    the system of white supremacy weaponized hip hop and turned it against black youth.
    anything that gives you pleasure can be used as a weapon.

    They didn't 'weaponize' hip hop, they wanted the hip hoppers to change their message and make them much more negative and they refused to do it. So after this the white execs stop pressing up their records and a few went independent for a while, then just fell back behind the scenes, mainly on the underground. Especially, the one's who started to learn the business side of things. When is the last time you heard KRS ONE or Rakim on the radio besides during an old school show on some holiday? They saw hip hop as a revolution and became afraid of it because they know the power of our words.

    What we see today are is the younger generation looking for a come up, no matter what they have to say to sell records and who have no sense of culture because of the lack of communication from the previous generation. Never forget that to increase that seperation they changed certain laws of parenting, making it difficult for parents to properly discipline their children which is a major factor when one asks why they talk so reckless the way they do.

    Hip Hop is something you live, Rap is something YOU DO which makes the individual a RAPPER, not a HIP HOPPER. The news is what has some of us say RAP, RAP, RAP to undermine the efforts of Hip Hop and get you as far away from the culture as possible.......

    Now why would they have to title their album this way if what these RAPPERS today were doing was HIP HOP?

    Same question?
