This is bad of the superbad so don’t disrespect old school hip hop.
“Unfortunately, the more popular the musical aspect of hip-hop culture became, the more the lines became blurred and rap music and hip-hop became one and the same to those it was marketed and sold to. Here we are 40 years later and the overwhelming majority of rap listeners fully don’t understand that the corporate-driven, mainstream rap music they hear on the radio has very little in common with the culture that originally spawned it.”
“Hip hop is the voice of this generation. Even if you didn’t grow up in the Bronx in the ‘70s, hip-hop is there for you. It has become a powerful force. Hip-hop binds all of these people, all of these nationalities, all over the world together.”
Khrysti Hill is an modern day b girl from Ohio, still dedicated to the roots and foundation of hip hop, understand where it came from. I advise that to all who might only look at the honeys not the bboy and bgirl stuff that create hip hop.
