Watch TV. Its good. The hip hop years has got to be one of the best things I have ever seen on TV, next to Scorsese's Dylan doc. The conclusion last night was totally top shit. The rise of Gansta rap with NWA and then Death row, the rise of Snoop and his trial for murder coinciding with sales of "Doggy style" going balistic, the rise and fall of Biggie and Tupac. Amazing.
Dr. C. DeLores Tucker's cross party campaign against gansta rap.
"We didn't go through all we went through to have our children calling each other niggers and calling our sisters bitches."
Powerful stuff. The doc touched a little on how hip hop has taken over white kids in the states but didn't really go into why.
Tonight: Christian Hip-hop!
