the revolution of the mind continues...

"People are honoring the sound of Black music. Just not actual Black people. , not one lead Black act has topped the Hot 100 all year. In large part, that’s due to a controversial change Billboard made to the R&B/hip-hop chart at the end of 2012 that essentially makes it a condensed version of the Hot 100, rendering the chart near-useless to hardcore fans of Black music. The fact that Billboard, in essence, gave up on tracking the core R&B/hip-hop audience speaks volumes about the industry’s priorities in the digital era." - Time Magazine

Who do we put a case on?
