Hip Hip’s White Invasion…

Rapper, Macklemore he was nominated for seven Grammy awards at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, winning four awards including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album (The Heist), Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Performance (“Thrift Shop”).

 

Hip Hop began on the corner of Sedgwick and Caldwell in the Bronx in 1973..  And from there, those Black MC’s and dj’s that would become pioneers and legends, unlike any music genre before it; Hip Hop grew, and literally transformed culture and media.

But has anyone seen the fame of Hip Hop today?

Rapper Macklemore took home a Grammy last year as best rap album, along with two more.  Honestly, I don’t know anything about this cat, but his face is now synonymous with what some consider to be the future of Hip Hop–white.

This is a travesty.  They had nothing to do with creating the art form at all.  Most white kids couldn’t tell you anything about the genesis of Hip Hop.  To them, Eminem was the beginning.

A few years ago, rap legend, Scarface made the following prediction: “Hip-hop is hip-hop,” he said. “And it ain’t going anywhere, you know what I mean. The face might change in 25 years. You know, hip-hop’s gonna be white in 25 years. It’s gonna be all white kids. No moreit’s gonna be like rock n’ roll. To find a Geto Boys record in 25 years is gonna be rare. Some of you don’t even believe that shit. You better fuckin’ believe it.”   He was pissed off about the state of condition of Rap and Hip Hop for years, and was trying to sound the alarm.

Are people in the Black culture hearing him?  particularly those Black rappers that are dreaming of big money, fame, and status, on the likes of rappers in the beginning of the genre?

I’m at an age where I can proudly state that I was privileged to be a witness to some of the greatest rappers and rap groups of all time, from the Sugarhill Gang to Snoop Dogg, Tupac, and Biggie Smalls, however, those were the good old days. Rap today is in a sad state.

I saw the decline almost 20 years ago.  And it hasn’t gotten any better.

There was a time when whites weren’t tolerated in Hip Hop–remember Vanilla Ice?  He had a hit record, but the rap community said, HELL NO!.  He was a joke.

THIS IS REAL HIP HOP RIGHT HERE!!!

Whites who rap, are mocking Hip Hop.  They say stupid things, and what they rap about has no relevance to what Hip Hop is about.  White privilege has allowed them access in a genre that truly does not respect them, but yet, like Rock music before it; their skin tone is the only credibility they need to be sold to white kids.  And that’s what it’s really about.  It’s easier to sell white rappers to white kids than it is to sell a Black rapper to them.  And these white owned record companies know this.

However, the responsibility must fall on those Black artists that didn’t handle business and allowed this to happen.  Squabbling among each other, beefs, and disrespect toward other MC’s, allowed this breach.

Your enemy had been watching all along.

And now, you face extinction, because you weren’t on your post.

Yes.  It’s horrible that yet again, white folks are trying to steal something that we created, but you know what, you can’t exactly holler THIEF!  When you held the door wide open for the culprit to get in.

The quality of the music has been absolutely sub-standard–every artist that has come out in the last 10 years, mainly from the south, has sounded the same.  They hire singers to bring out their tracks–or sing wack over their music, same beats, same themes, nothing ever changes.

This is a wake up call, playa’s.

You better hear this message because if this becomes a reality, 25 years from now, white kids will be rapping to music that they had nothing to do with in creation, but everything to do with in conquering one of the greatest–most original musical genres, since our fore-bearers creation of jazz,  ever created by Black people.

DON’T LET IT HAPPEN!

    I remember I shared a link with you on a post that you wrote last year or the year before last in which a industry insider sent an anonymous letter to some black hip hop website in which he or she discussed a secret meeting that took place 20+ years ago. Actually, I couldn’t find the link another reader found it for me. Remember that? The meeting was about about the so-called elite takeover of hip hop from Afrocentric black nationalism to gangsta culture.

    I agree with you that Black people have to take some responsibility in the high-jacking of hip hop as well as other aspects of our culture. We allow these people to steal our culture all in the name of some elusive “brotherhood.” It’s just another form of white validation.

  6. this is why I don’t follow current hip-hop or current anything anymore, cause when you see people like this Mackerel-More (he looks like a mackerel) and that Aussie hoe Icky Azaelia rising to prominence it makes you just wanna hurl… it really just proves that whites really can’t invent anything, they just steal and bastardize everything we black people do. The same thing with break dancing, have you ever seen any of the step-up movies? all the major characters were white and sometimes Asian, blacks were practically relegated to the background and portrayed as rough-neck haters and gangsters. I really hate this like ENOUGH ALREADY

    Thats the way of the white supremacists. They invade, colonize and try to rewrite history.
    Look at the ANCIENT EGYPT(kemet) controversy.
    They are scared to admit that AFRICANS from the Nubians Started CIVILIZATION in Egypt.
    They are arguing that Ancient Egypt were white.

    Thats just their nature
