I grew up on rap and R&B just like many other people in the community, but as I grew older, I started to look at our music  through a different lens. Our music incites a lack of respect for women and black men. It promotes drugs, violence, and sexual promiscuity. How do I explain our music, and I have to explain, because it's the only view most of the world has of us
African Americas, not to mention when my kids ask for the meanings of: ho, hood rat, skank, trick, scalley wag, or any of the decriptive terms of endearment (what we call it in the hood) that we use to refer to women in our music (especially rap). That's the next show. Join us as we, once again, go deep into the community to explore our issues.
