Listening to these kids gives me hope that the youth still understand the philosophy of emceeing and not just rapping. To many folks don’t understand the culture of Hip Hop and its original reason for coming into existence.
It was once used to bring awareness to the masses. Though sometimes that awareness can take on a negative outlook we must realize that everything isn’t positive and to neglect the negative means we just choose to keep our eyes closed to everything that reality grants existence to.
With that said, the bottom line is this culture was successful in reaching the masses because it gave you the essentials for critical thinking. Even if that thinking was spawned from trying to interpret the meaning of an emcee’s penmanship the end result is it made you use your brain….and that’s all we ask of the listener!!!!
