      Universal Zulu Nation Calls Emergency Meeting to Recapture Hip-Hop

      The Supreme World Council of the Universal Zulu Nation will hold an emergency meeting Feb. 22 to address what the group feels is an imbalance of Hip-Hop played on radio and TV stations.

      Expected to appear at the meeting to support the Universal Zulu Nation and founder Afrika Bambataa include Hip-Hop activists Kevin Powell, Davey D, Rosa Clemente and April Silver; rapper KRS-One; the Temple of Hip-Hop, educator and filmmaker Martha Diaz; Public Enemy frontman Chuck D; photographer Ernie Paniccioli; Rock Steady Crew member Crazy Legs.

      According to representatives for the Universal Zulu Nation, Bambaataa hopes steps will be taken to bring consciousness back to Hip-Hop.

      "We are not saying to stop playing what you are playing on the air or showing on the TV, but to have balance and play it all, old-school to new-school to be true school," representatives for Bambaataa said in a statement.

      The group hopes a plan of action will be devised to curtail "death and destruction playing on radio and TV music video shows."

      The coalition of artists and activists hope to stop being scared to expose "record labels, radio stations, TV Hip-Hop shows or whatever shows that show us in a BS vision of just being pimps, playas, gangsters and hoes, straight up niggers, wiggers or any other derogatory words that they use and we use to call ourselves."

      The emergency meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the National Black Theater, 125th Street and Fifth Ave. in New York City.

      The Universal Zulu Nation was formed in the 1970's by Africa Bambaataa.

      Some people take themselves WAY TOO SERIOUSLY, when in actuality, no one else is really taking them as seriously as they think.

      The Hip Hop Has Been Gone From Rap Music


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      The majority of popular Hip Hop music as been changed to gangster rap and hip hop culture has been changed to gangster hip hop culture.
      The term gangster rap was created by Dr. Dre. Every since the debut of his former group NWA gangster rap in some shape or form has been on the rise. They all use the stoagies in the mouth for the pictures and flyers representing Scarface. They all use the gangster movie samples in their music.
      Some of them have the music videos showing exchanging of cash from hand to hand which sublimanly promote drug selling.
      Gone are the likes of "Rappers Delight", Kool Moe Dee, and Melle Mel.

      But today they might blend the old school rap with the gangster part. Thats like blending lies and truth. Its no good and is used fool you or pull the wool over your eyes.

      If old school hip hop is going to blend with something it needs to be concious lyrics.
