Game On a Nation: Hip Hop Intellectual

 

In Lupe Fiasco’s Switch, he displays his lyrical word play to be able to jump between multiple personalities that deal with bravado, sub-conscience word manipulation, self-conscience rap, materiality, and reality. He does this all within a 3 minute song and jumps back and forth between the personalities and changes the flow of his rap style from fast to slow. Who said Hip-Hop is dead, enjoy.

 
 

How much do you know about the importance of a woman's worth? Will there is an conscience hip hop group that breaks down of the importance of women throughout history. For you sexy women out there who have their own, this one is for you. Cheers!!!

 
 

As I was holding dialog across this ocean we call the internet, someone had a question regarding Tupac's song Blasphemy. The question that was posed to me was, "What's [Tupac] meant when he said Niggaz in Jerusalem waiting for signs??" 

Good question, let me break it down for you. He is stating that instead of people taking action in their own hands, they are waiting for God to send them messages. Tupac is taking a stance that can be found in Cornel West's book, "Prophesy Deliverance: An Afro-American Revolutionary Christianity" Please comment if there are any other questions that you would like to have addressed.

I should charge by the hour for this, someone pass me a drink and go check out the video for yourself.

 
 

I wanted to bring to your attention to a main stream music video from 2007 by the artist Chamillionaire. I applaud him for going toe to toe with the mass news media who is at cyclical stages always attacking Hip Hop. He was one of the few artists who stood up and attacked back. In addition, he predicted that Obama would be President.


Open those peepers and ears and click on the video below.

 
 

Again the messages that we pass on to one another can help change our lives. Some people who never really listen to Hip Hop will say that it not an art form that should be respected. But history has always shown that the current African-American Art form is not respected by the American majority until a new muscial art form is created, Jazz or Blues anyone.


Lay back and let your mental stomach sip on this lyrical cognac. (Please get your grown man on.)
