Good Morning, Sunshine

28 May

We have so much to talk about
a lot a catchin’ up to do
I’ll bring the diamond girl
because I’m so into you

~Tony! Toni! Tone!~

 

Bush’s former press secretary has something to tell you. ~CNN~

Medical experts fear lifelong ailments for Katrina victims in FEMA trailers. Nice. ~AP~

Some Brooklyn high schoolers ditch school because they are afraid of being bullied by the middle school students.  Man, kids don’t even follow bullying etiquette these days. ~WCBS TV~

Here’s a sneak peak into the lyrics and thought behind TI’s upcoming album. TI is one of those rappers who I wish would talk a little less about drugs, violence, etc. I wouldn’t mind a more grown up album from Mr. Harris. ~MTV~

    When was the last time there was a grown up Hip Hop Album?

    Not since the days of the Blast Master and X Clan.

    Somewhere, everything took a drastic turn for the worst.

    After all, Hip Hop was NEVER about money and guns, it was about making art out of what you could find to create something new.

    When was the last time there was a grown-up hip hop album? Depends on how you define grown-up, I suppose. I’d definitely put the Roots out there as the face of today’s most well-known, grown-up hip hop. Have you heard Rising Down? Mos Def and Talib would be in that category too. To me, grown up means using intelligence, wit and of course talent to address pertinent issues…and make a good party song every now and then too. 🙂

    Money and guns were most certainly part of hip hop even in the early days. Not in the way that it is today, but it was there because it existed in the urban environment that inspired hip hop. Yesterday’s “The Message” has disappeared and we’re left with songs like “Money, Cash, Hoes” and all those other songs that glorify the ugly side of city life instead of bringing attention to those things as problems that need to be fixed.
