Whats up my brotha's and sista's? I am trying to get hip hop back into what it really is:Relative music for people that have no one to relate to. It is a movement that I am starting up and I have no resources. I have been in america for 5 years of my life and I can say, I do not like what I see when it comes to the hip hop and the message being put out to these kids and adults for that matter.
I know I am one person and y'all get a billion messages a day, but THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE!!!! I am tired of going for a walk in my complex at night and people hesitating to walk past me because of what they think I represent!!!
I have lived all over the globe and the hip hop look is horrible, in fact its disgusting how people view us as black people all together. Everywhere I have lived, I had to up hold this image of a thug because thats what I thought I was supposed to be because of the sterotype they have on us. My parents always told me to be myself, but that is hard growing up when all of your peers have an image of what you are supposed to be. I didnt know any better at the time but now, I am grown and understand that this sick picture that has been portrayed has been done by the hands of the industry. And we sit back and continue to put this stuff out like its okay!!! Its not.
IF YOUR BLACK YOUR A GANGSTER OR A THUG!!! and im far from either but thats how they view us even in slacks and a tie.
so i am asking you, are you willing to help if not then cool? But this movement will happen sooner or later, its just how and when. I want it now as well as millions of other real hip hoppers and real music lovers!!!
