Why is black culture always emulated yet demonized at the same time? Why are those who are outsiders partake in what we create and are praised for it yet the originators are looked down upon? Is this by design or are we to inviting and accepting of others taking credit for what we create? We've seen the "wannabes" and "copy cats" come and go, but some seem to stick around way too long and over stay their welcome. Join your hosts Jeremy, Jesse and Jerry as they explore one of the undertoned darksides that seem to plaque the hip hop culture.
