Positive Hip Hop Promotion

May 21, 2007

I don’t think enough people are promoting hip hop in a positive nature. It is easy to focus on the negatives but there is a lot more that hip hop has to offer. Last week, I wrote about a reality show that taught about hip hop culture in a [Keep Reading]

(White) Rapper Show

May 16, 2007

I don’t normally like the reality show genre. Ego Trip’s The (White) Rapper Show is just the latest in a long line of these shows. The difference about this one is that it is a show that represents hip hop culture in a respectful way. I like the [Keep Reading]

Yesterday Don Imus lost his job. The world is safe again. The interesting thing about this media blitz is that I don’t think it is really that big an issue. Don Imus said something on the airwaves that offended people. He said it in a joking [Keep Reading]

Cultural Influence

April 2, 2007

It feels like I have always written. I can’t remember when I started but I can remember when I started to take it seriously. I used to write poems. I had written quite a few before I discovered rap music. That is when everything changed. I learned [Keep Reading]
