Hip hop is a global cultural communication style including the pillars of music, art and dance. Born in urban American environments, the arts of DJing, MCing, graffiti, breakdancing, slam poetry, beatbox and beatmaking have become worldwide ways young people and adults use to express their thoughts, feelings, ideas, values, knowledge and wisdom in urban, rural, suburban and other environments. Unfortunately, it is also having a profound negative impact on young blacks. This aspect of hip-hop can no longer be tolerated. With young rappers and supporters now sounding like homicidal social paths and are now being jailed for it. Join your hosts Jeremy jesse and schelett as they discuss these destructive tactics and how to combat them.
