|I wanna go outside in the ...|
Over the years we both matured into many facets of life. Now it is difficult witnessing you being used to disrespect our culture and your influential leadership manipulated. My friends warned me, "Can't you see, many of them are disrespecting our people, heck-a-foul." The explanation for those moments of misuse was, "it is only entertainment and not reality" but I ignored the warnings and bought that. Now a line has been crossed and it is not entertaining at all.
I have watched Hip-Hop take stands, and I've enjoyed many good moments. Endured the storm in bad times; but I cannot wrap my head around some fatherly advice recently given. It's amazing how we can rise from nothing and then grow to suppress the very same culture we claimed to be rescuing. Giving advice on how to "Turn Young Girls Out" took me into a wormhole of thoughts and possibilities surrounding the women of my immediate and extended family members.
"You are a Public Enemy to falsehood, but it seems you're digressing into an enemy to the public"
I am falling out of love with the essential use of Hip Hop as days prolong, no longer can I excuse its behavior. Seriously please tell me, obtaining rewards for the work, does it affect one's mind and soul, to the point of being impious? Or have these fictional rhyming characters (Jinns) taken over their bodies and now rappers are hosting unwanted beings, consumed with spreading mischief and mating immorally with humans. Sounds far fetched; well instructing young men how to stimulate harmful sex, will only cause and continue to create long term mental health issues.
Hopefully this is a learning lesson for all of us; one we can grow from. Maybe some responsible people will begin reforming this tool, called Hip Hop; and heal our urban culture. At one time people disbelieved we could not produce high levels of emotional intelligence and then, The Creator gave us Hip Hop!
It's about reconstructing a nation for simple goodness. Utilize sciences to benefit and not pervert a young mind, subsequently future leaders.?!
"Hip Hop, I am Falling out of Love; It's not you, it's me."
