It is my belief that we, those of African ancestry should control our music. In this case hip hop and r&b. I agree that music is a universal language and anybody can have skills. Shit look at Eminem and Remy Shand. But the music and the money should be controlled by US. We need to control our distribution and have our completely independent labels. Imagine a Black Recording label that can rival and outshine the likes of BMG Universal and Sony. THere are more than enough rappers, producers and athletes out in the industry with the means to make this possible. We should put our money together and form a conglomerate if you will. SO we can market the truth and not the stories(the fake ones that glorify Niggativity). marketed correctly our youth would buy these and fill their heads with knowledge and strength. We must take the Black Power approach of being self sufficient with out the help of the caucasion and his money. This will in turn root out the bullshit that they make us create just so we can pay bill and buy all the unneede fancy cars and clothes. We must take back what we created and make it work for us not just a Wu-Tang Clan sized group of emcees and producers but the whole of our people. This is my opinion of how hip hop must come full circle as a mature adult. let me know how you feel about this.
