WHY do the BEASTS UNSEEN try to TOTALLY ELIMINATE HIPHOP's ELDER GENERATIONS? YOUNGER generations of every other genre of music, from JAZZ,to ROCK & ROLL, to REGGAE to R&B to COUNTRY has LOVE for their ELDER ARTISTS.But HIPHOP? Here in the U.S. where it began? BLATANT DISRESPECT! For those who have actually raised our levels of consciousness & intelligence in their time,regardless of the *BLING*,artists such as L.L.COOL J,who's been out for over 20 YEARS,is barely known,let alone accepted by today's YOUTH.
SLICK RICK is 40 yrs old now, & HE STILL PERFORMS FAR GREATER than MOST of today's RAP "STARS".Same with BIG DADDY KANE,DOUG E.FRESH, KOOL KEITH,etc.What is the devil's fear of our youth connecting with our SENIORS? I KNOW, HOWEVER, I'd love to hear YOUR perspective.:blackicon
