I’m sure you’ve heard the term before; Alternative Hip Hop. What a funny name. I thought Hip Hop music had no bounderies or guidelines. I thought Hip Hop music was composed of a conglomerate of influences blended to create a unique sound.
Lil Wayne needs rehab. Badly! I guess calling himself “The Best Rapper Alive” wasn’t enough. During his interview with Foundation Magazine, He went off on a megalomaniacal, and possibly drug induced rant, dissing all mixtape DJ’s and even goes as far as to say he originated the mixtape game.
It seems that I have a little more to get off my chest about Nelly’s comments on the BET Blog concerning Hip Hop vs. America, especially how He ended it. Here is the direct quote:
“Now, Hip Hop is making money, we’re making strides, we’re the biggest music on the planet, and we’re also the largest black employers on the planet, so its allowing more brother and sisters to do other positive things, and send my kids to some of the best schools in the country. And to solidify trust funds, leave trust funds, have health care. It’s a beautiful thing, and I’m happy to be a part of it.”
I ran across something by Nelly the other day on the BET Blog that I found quite interesting, and it falls in line with my article Whoâ€™s really in charge? He was making reference to Hip Hop vs. America in which he took part last fall, and He goes on a tirade about how America wants to ban Hip Hop, gangsta rap especially, because they canâ€™t control it.
