Hip Hop has morphed from music from the streets to music from the toilet.

I grew up listening to Biggie and Tupac, who are legends in the Hip-Hop genre. They were so honest and not afraid to tell people what they needed to hear. From “Keep Ya Head Up” to “Everyday Struggle,” the music reflected a world that many feared. A world that people wanted to ignore and sweep under the rug. They brought that truth to America’s doorstep with the help of others, but the feeling of arrival felt good. Today, however, is not the case. The music today is pure oppression mixed with ignorance and seasoned with Bull S**T. The major problem is that these young minds are eating it up and living it on a daily basis. We all understand this, but continue to support it, which says a lot about the society we live in. The complaining behind closed doors, in the meetings and on the blogs, but never out in the open where you can be criticized and held accountable for your words. If we want anything to change then our own fears have to be overcome because the path we are on with this music is only going to get worse. The question I ask today is, When will Hip-Hop stop with the Bull S**T?
