The reason for this post is, i was reading an aritcle about jarule Lashin out obout upcoming congressional hearing Addressing Hip-Hop. the article said;On Sept. 25th, a US Congressional hearing entitled “From Imus to Industry: The Business of Stereotypes and Degradation” will take place and it will investigate media “stereotypes and degradation” of black women in hip-hop and the entertainment industry. Here's what Ja said;

“There’s a fuckin black kid right now about to get 25 years for having a fight with some white kids over hanging the nooses over the white tree, let’s get to that. Let’s get into shit like that, because that’s what’s tearing up America, not me calling a woman a bitch or a hoe on my rap songs.”

“And if it is, then we need to go step to Paramount, and fuckin’ MGM, and all of these other motherfuckers that’s making all of these movies and we need to go step to MTV and Viacom, and lets talk about all these fuckin’ shows that they have on MTV that is promoting homosexuality, that my kids can’t watch this shit,” he continued. “Dating shows that’s showing two guys or two girls in mid-afternoon. Let’s talk about shit like that! If that’s not fuckin’ up America, I don’t know what is.”

“There’s a lot of issues we can address besides hip-hop, but they want to put everything on us like we’re the problem,” Ja added. “This is going to be a shameless fuckin’ plug, but I said, ‘when everyone wants to point the finger, and ask why there’s so much corruption, they only need to look in the mirror.’ It starts with themselves.”

All i gat ta say is, if them congress really have their way with this, in ten years i see hiphop dead!

i don`t really get what that congress is about

but

The fate of Hip-Hop Kulture is in the absolute power of us, the Hiphoppas. If we don't stand up for ourselves, if we tolerate the confusion between Hiphop and rap music, if we don't provide fertile grounds for us, our families and our children to prosper as Hiphoppas, yes it's going to be dead! But that does not have to happen, most of us don't realize how important we are, and how priviledged we are to be born in this certain time when we benefit of Hiphop. Let's carry this tradition on to the next generations. If we can't benefit from it to the maximum because of the insecure world we are living in and the criminal image, at least we shouldn't fuck it up completely, we should at least try to put Hip-Hop Kulture on a safe path and give our successors a chance to have what we never had. I know a lot of y`all don`t really take it seriously ... but I really believe in the whole H-LAW thing. Health, Love, Awareness and Wealth ... yo people, that`s what we need, it`s like the essence of life in 4 words ... now tell me who was preaching such a positive and productive way of thinking before the Hiphoppas in such an essential, absolutely straight forward way? We should think of ourselves as chosen people, divine people ... we should stick together and help others to discover themselves through Hiphop.
Check http://www7.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0704/feature4/index.html to see how fucking important y`all are! It's about you! It already sounds like a cliche ... but you are not just doing Hiphop, YOU ARE HIPHOP!
I don`t really know what else to tell you guys ... the best advice I may give to any Hiphoppa is that he should start taking responsability, that`s it.

And I don't know about y`all, but I am Hiphop.

Rap music has been terrible for awhile now and i don't see it getting any better. There will always be underground and mainstream rappers. As long as there is underground rappers that are good, i will continue to listen to rap. I think album sales are gonna continue to decline for the next 10 years. The thing i have a concern about is that there isn't gonna be any good rappers in the future because the veteran rappers we like such as Wu Tang, Redman, KRS One, Rakim, Ice Cube, Mobb Deep, Nas, Kool G Rap, EPMD, Geto Boys, Canibus, Guru, Common, Keith Murray, Spice 1, MC Eiht aren't gonna be around long and when they quit rapping, there aren't gonna be any good mc's coming into the game. These veteran rappers i named had love for the music when they first got into the industry. They weren't only doing rap music to get paid which is what a lot of wack rappers now are only in the rap game for. When rappers don't have love for the music and the culture and they only wanna get paid, then you might as well find another job career because there's no point in wasting your time trying to be a rapper when you're only interested in getting paid so you can buy material things and get women.


That's why i'm gonna continue to listen to old rap albums because most of these new rap albums suck because these faggot ass rappers out now only wanna get paid. Another thing that makes me mad is you got some veteran rappers that have changed their music so they can stay relevant and that's a damn shame when you gotta change your music so you can still hang around like LL Cool J, Mobb Deep, Too Short, Ice Cube. These dudes have been in the game so long, they shouldn't have to change their music to stay in the game. I give much respect to KRS One, Kool G Rap, MC Eiht, Spice 1, WC, Jeru The Damaja, Pharoahe Monch, Freddie Foxxx, Artifacts(Tame One and El Da Sensei are still doing underground solo albums), Ras Kass, Canibus and some other veteran rappers that are still around and they chose to stay underground and not change their music.

Exactly...its not about the art anymore. Very few are about that. Its become almost totally immersed into pop culture and commercialism just like any other genre of successful music.
Remember the grunge movement of the early 90's? It became commercialized and died out.

I don't think Hip hop itself will die, just certain variations of it. This crunk shit...lil john, cash money southern rap, whatever you want to call it...this will die out. Just like the Puffy samples died out. But will rap ever be the same??? I don't know. There maybe be music revolutions every now and then(a la grunge and rock n roll) but for the most part they will remain underground for the true fan. Pop music is the fad of the time...look at Britney. SHe don't even sell no more.

Yo, Subtle said it best, you can't kill Hip-Hop.

There's always gonna be a resistance and there's always gonna be people around to look at the latest single and it's artist and be like, "Yo, that's not music. It's garbage."

DJ Premier said it on "N.Y. Reality Check 101", "The Underground started Hip-Hop and The Underground will hold it down if it ever started to crumble."

Of course the main problem is you have a world that just wants to dance. Live for the moment. Classic albums mean nothing to them because the so-called "music" THEY listen to isn't designed to speak to the soul, bring back great memories and inspire. That's another reason why lyricism isn't as popular in the mainstream ranks anymore, because the masses don't realize what Hip-Hop is. Really, they don't know what the 4 Elements of Hip-Hop are.

I think one of the main reasons why I love the Wu-Tang Clan, is because they solidified the fact that, just as Kung-Fu has an ideology that no matter what style you practice, you have to be deadly and effective in that style in order to be respected by your peers. So, in Hip-Hop, TRUE Hip-Hop, wether you're an Emcee, DJ, B-Boy/B-Girl, or Graf Artist, not only are you going to have to practice day in and day out for long hours, but you're also going to have to battle fellow practitioners for the purposes of discovering your strengths and weaknesses and from there, conquering them.

Hip-Hop Culture in it's truest sense is well past the mentality of most people these days because I promise you, if you were to close down every club across the world, Friday and Saturday night only, for just 2 weeks, the suicide rate would climb faster than Wolverine's temper. They use this music, or a sad imitation of this music rather, as a means to socialize and for sex appeal.

One of the main things the true heads have to do, is not only continue to support the artists that love this culture as we do, but take part in it. Any way you can. Even if it's just putting on your favorite album and terrorizing innocent bystanders as you ride down the street.

Consider the industry and everyone in it the nation of Mordor from "The Lord of The Rings". Greedy, savage and bent on destruction. Consider the true lovers of Hip-Hop Culture the rest of Middle Earth. Because that's exactly how Hip-Hop unites it's listeners. No matter wether they were Man, Elf, Dwarf or Hobbit, they took up arms as one. Most important of all, remember how often the good were outnumbered by the evil. Remember also, that even though they were outnumbered, they shook thier doubts and fought.

Hip-Hop dying? It only dies if you let it die within you. Then, one by one, people will lose the passion and love they have for it, because there won't be any examples around for them to draw from. No one they know comin' up to them like, "Yo!! Did you hear the new Wisemen album?!"

Someone said it earlier, but it begs to be repeated, we ARE Hip-Hop. So, like Mos Def said, "If you wanna know where Hip-Hop is gonna be in the next 10 years, ask yourself where YOU'RE gonna be in the next 10 years."

The Temple Of Hiphop is Hiphop's preservation society and international ministry;

it is not a place! It is a society, a community, a family of people that grew up in a movement called Hiphop and are prepared to assist one another in the establishing of Hiphop as a legitimate community of peace and prosperity;


a nation. Organizationally, the Temple Of Hiphop is a Ministry, Archive, School and Society.

Although there are a variety of Temple of Hiphop facilities, archives and schools, in essence the Temple of Hiphop is a vision.


It is located a Perfection Street and Victory Road. Its true address is 1, Victory Road.


Such a vision is reserved for the truly committed and serious Hiphoppa. Are you Hiphop?

Right on. In 10 years the mullet will replace the cesar or baldie as the standard Hip Hop haircut, baggy jeans and skinny jeans are out, now rappers are wearing tights and gay hats that look like pretzels. Graffiti artists will switch to potato painting. Breakdancers will incorporate square dancing into their routines. Diggy Simmons will have made a critically acclaimed masterpiece of an album, Cilvaringz will be topping the billboard charts with his rendition of Christopher Cross' 'Believe It Or Not' (featuring members of Wu Corp on backing vocals). A monkey will learn to rap in autotune, he is signed to T-Pains label and they duet on the song 'In Luv wit A Monkey'. There will be a rapper with a gimmick where he performs songs whilst solving soduku puzzles in under a minute. Ben Affleck will become A DJ for Jay-Z. RZA will compose the score for the Justin Bieber/Jennifer Lopez romcom 'Shit Taco'. Ricky Gervais will host 106 & Park and make Wacka Flocka Flame cry. Larry King will, miraculously still be alive. 10 years from now there'll be a son of a billionaire rapping about how hard his life is, an 80 year old white woman rapping about her gammy leg, and an actual gay rapper having hit records and half the posters on here will have heart attacks or start listening to Country and Western.
