Dr. Christopher Johnson writes: "The messages in Hip Hop, and all forms of popular music existing within the America project can expect to be affected and for the most part controlled by corporate machinery. In fact, it is the will of the corporation beyond the innovation of the artist that must dominate the relationship in order for that relationship to exist at all." See Voxunion.com. Join us as we talk about the message and the medium to spread consciousness, pride and self-love. FEATURED GUEST: SKIPP COON has been influenced by the likes of none other than poet/musician/author, Gil Scott-Heron. Skipp's music is a reflection of the Black experience in America; and a continuation of Black music, meant to uplift the Black community. The message that Skipp conveys is aimed toward Black people having more love for themselves. Society can change only if we change it.

Change begins with self. The music is simply another medium to facilitate that change - for edification and building or to belittle and destroy."
