Last week I picked up my sixteen year old nephew from school. As I gave my nephew and a few of his friends a ride home, one of his friends was playing a song from a so-called artist by the name of "Juvenile." The title of the song was "In My Life." I couldn't help but be infuriated by the lyrics I was hearing. Apparently the content of the song was nothing more than materialisitc, self-destructive behavior. The track went as follows: I gonna buy cars, I'm gonna get clothes, I'm gonna rock jewels, I'm gonna f_ _ _ h_ _ _ , I'm gonna smoke w_ _ _, I need it in my life, I wan't it in my life, got to have it in my life, come put it in my life. This is nothing but garbage! My first thought was hip hop has changed (for the worse) since time when I first began to bop my head to hip hop in the eighties. Secondly, I was more disturbed of the fact our young Black men along with Mr. Charlie and co. our poisoning our youth with this nonsense. Not only are they trying to destroy us with drugs and alcohol, but corrupt the psyche of our youth with demonic music. As a Black man I'm hurt by this. Eventually I emailed the record company in regard to my contempt. No response as of yet. However, to really put their feet to the fire it will take numerous emails and letters to show we care about our youth. Anyone who is truly concerned can direct their emails to www.cashmoney-records.com Peace!
