    What's Real Hip-Hop? Top 5 List And The Politics Of Rap/Black Music

    in Politics

    On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we're going to take a break from "heavy" discussions and have some fun discussing the culture of Hip-Hop. We're going to give our top 5 list on questions like "Best lyricist", "Best Producers", "Our Personal Favorite Top 5 emcees" etc. We will discuss why we think certain rap music is labeled "real Hip-hop" and why other styles aren't which means the subject of regional/coastal prejudices will be discussed. We will also discuss the politics of what is happening in the Hip-Hop culture in general. If you enjoy Black music and the artistry of the Hip-Hop culture come and build with us. We're bringing the barbershop to the Field Afrikan Radio Show and remember everything we discuss is always from a RBG perspective.

    The Enemy Within.The Black Scoundrel

    in Politics Progressive

    What I have always noticed is when looking at other cultures there is always a clear definition or line of demarcation between what or who is good,and what or who is evil.Good eventually triumps over evil.Justice prevails.It has been 400 years since the first Africans were brought to America,but no justice has been done for them.No reparations,no land of their own ect.Now some of you will immediately talk about the White man and White Supremacy as if it is some supernatural force and the White man is some God in the sky controlling every move you make.That is coonery.The truth is what keeps us as bottom feeders in Western Civilization are the race traitors who walk around open and free with no fear of retribution for their insolence and treachery.The worst of these are the Black Scoundrels.These are the people who benefit from crasp psuedo revolutionary rhetoric that saps the enery and distract people from real nation building.This is what destroyed the Black Power movement in the 1970's.Scoundrels posing as militants inflitrated the movement and began steering the movement off a cliff with violent base criminal acts.Scoundrels come where there is an opportunity.They would like to take over BAIO but as long as Kalagenesis is around they know to stay clear.Tonight I will unlease rage and fury and I deliver a late Fire and Brimstone Sunday Night Sermon on Monday!
