In the November issue of XXL Eminem told us that the arrival of X-Clan caused tension and confusion among his friends, who were conveniently both black and white and supposedly getting along fabulously everday of the week. He seems to suggest that such groups threatened to destroy Hip-Hop, much like anyone that were to suggest today any topic that was entirely about Black Pride.
At the same time our beloved trickster Flava Flav seems to be head over heels for a tall, foul mouthed, aging, self centered, drunkard named Bridgette Nelson, whose major call to fame is not her small resume of movies, but her string of marriages to Hollywood actors.
Now we expect Eminem to do his thing. But what we know is that he could have easily named Public Enemy in his list of rap styles that threatened his takeover of black music. But for whatever reason he didnt. Perhaps because we LOVE public enemy. Everybody, even the black people that aint conscious love Public Enemy.
But then Flava Flav does this "thing". This awful (?) thing. And as the cliche goes, "he had the nerve to choose the ugliest one he could find".
Does anyone feel he has tarnished or destroyed the legacy of Public Enemy or suggested that "even the most militant people come around eventually". will his antics set our young people back?
it seems more and more we see our soldiers falling out and giving in.
