Remember back in the days when rappers had a moral and social conscious? Remember back in the days artists like Tupac, Ice Cube, and Public enemy, just to name a few, had socially conscious topics to their records?
In addition, to their male counterparts’, female artists like Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, and Salt & Pepper participated in acknowledging the quandaries that has plagued the African American communities for decades.
Back In the days, there were songs like Brenda got a Baby by Tupac, U.N.I.T.Y. by Queen Latifah or Fight the Power by Public Enemy etc. etc.
Those particular songs that I have mentioned in the above sentence were songs that had substance and value. Now days 90% of rap music is all about ineffective narcissistic principles.
To my readers, answer this for me; if everyone are DRUG KINGPINS, WHO ARE THE BUYERS? Why are the Prisons so overcrowded? , Why are they rapping? , and why are they snitching on themselves?
Now do not perplex this composition of me saying artist back in the day did not have materialistic and misogynistic records, nor I am not saying there are not any artists now days that has a social conscious.
Also I am not saying, I do not listen to some of the music now days, but what I am saying is LIFE IS MORE THAN PARTY AND BULLSH**. It would be nice to have a well rounded music industry.
