It is unfortunate how even in today’s society we are bent over the idea that hip hop is associated with gangs, gunshots and stabbings. What is it about expression of music that can be taken to such extent? Why are we so afraid of hip hop? Is it because it is a form of expression that African Americans in America used to express their emotions and plight. Jazz was also created by the African Americans of America….
Yet when we think of jazz we do not associate this with our fellow African American brothers and sisters. What do we think about? Let’s be real here! Why do we steal art but not acknowledge where it came from; we fear their talent. Its hypocrisy at its finest.
