2 guys, are we shy? NO

Hip-Hop was about giving poor people a voice. It started off with a beat and an MC hyping the crowd.. Then the MC started to rap over the beat. It incorporated dancing, scratching, drawing grafiti and spitting sick rhymes. It was never about dumbing down lyrics and advertising for big companies. Teaching kids how to act, how to think, how to dress.. it was about giving poor people a voice, empowering them. These artists are pop stars, their celebrities, Gods that kids grow up to idolize & want to be like. “If you go platinum it’s got nothing to do with luck, it just means that a million people are stupid as fuck.” These artists belong in the same category as Rihanna, Katy Perry, Justin beiber.. pop stars man. I’m happy for their monetary success.. but just because they make money that does not mean they deserve to represent hip-hop
