Detroit U.S.A.: Once the most prosperous city in America. With a booming manufacturing sector and cultural magnetism, the city had bright horizons after World War II. But as the 1960′s rolled in, the marriage of Big Business and Big Government overtook Detroit.
Big Business and Big Government overtook Detroit. The central planners in government needed the powerful corporations, and the powerful corporations came to depend on the bureaucracy, too. The marriage worked well for the politicians and for their corporate cronies, but Detroit itself entered a decades-long decline. America watched as Detroit slowly bled people, jobs and revenue. Politicians tried spending money. They tried raising taxes. The more they taxed and spent, the faster the city declined.
Detroit still had its “Big Three” auto manufacturers, until two of its crown jewels, General Motors and Chrysler, imploded in 2008 under the weight of reckless and subsidized mismanagement.
Instead of allowing market forces to rebuild Detroit and the auto industry, the United States handed billions of dollars to General Motors and Chrysler.
Five years later, the city of Detroit is bankrupt and almost $20 billion dollars in debt. Meanwhile, General Motors has a cash balance of over $20 billion, still owes the taxpayers over $10 billion dollars that outgoing CEO Dan Akerson said will not be paid, and the company continues to benefit from an unprecedented $18 billion tax gift from the bankruptcy. TONIGHT HERE IT ALL.

DL Jones isn't the first name that comes to mind when one thinks of Detroit hip hop. Hell, it's not even the second or third. But with his new album, Wasted Talent, Jones has a shot at something more than just being another Detroit also-ran.The album is his first — but it's a pretty perfect document of Detroit life, especially the life of one trying to launch a music career. It's a little sad, a little mad but as soulful as it is hard, and as hopeful as it is as scared. It's still willing and able to get the cash to go out and have fun on a Saturday night, even though it's got enough heaviness on it to ponder on Sunday afternoon.
