We love black ethnic music: Blues Soul, R&B Funk, it’s all here. But Hip Hop? Rap?
But there ain’t no Hip Hop Soulbot stuff here – The original Hip Hop artists started out sampling using their roots; our beloved Black America Music, these first Hip Hoppers used the roots; and were rapping and creatively using Soul and Funk sound bites: a lot of James Brown. That was OK.
Kanye West’s early stuff was sort of OK but then it deteriorated.
Puff Daddy- Notorious – BIG – 2 Pack – Dr Dray – Kanye West and loads of others, then focused in on nasty themes. Crime, prostitution, sexual, promiscuity; a low materialistic theme runs throughout it all. Oversized Gold chains. Degrading and debased videos: very sordid and mostly stupid inane lyrics a simpleton would mnemonically string together. What’s going on?
A rapper who commented on it was PROFESSOR GRIFF formerly a member of Public Enemy. He tells what he thinks is behind the dark agenda of Hip Hop. Having said that, Professor Griff himself was mired in controversy. He made several deeply anti-semetic diatribes which got him in serious trouble later in his career and could we have been the reason he was fired from Public Enemy.

The conspirator lobby would have us believe the occult is involved in this just to add a bit of juice. A weird book called The Music Of Time tells about Chubby Checker‘s massive hit Let’s Twist Again included subliminal sounds to enhance purchasing the ’45 – and Phil Spector was involved; the book points to involvement in the music industry by the CIA. Oh dear…
The Insane Clown Posse (Jugallows) ‘Wup Woo’ is an example of other crazed themes in pop music.
For uplifting music just look around and play the great Soul music on our site.
And for some alternative to mainstream Hip Hop try this:
And as for Rappers….
RAPPERS Take or leave em – We choose to leave em. A good example of their inane meaningless vocabulary is Snoop Dogs hit “Signs” with lyrics going like this:
“I from Los Angelous where the helicopters got camerous”
and with a chorus line of: “Don’t F*** with me”
