It’s time to strip the ‘authentic’ label off rap“-Stanley Crouch
Take BackThe Music” article in Essence

Over at HipHop-Blogs, Hashim has a post about the article Greg Tate wrote in the the latest Village Voice. Greg is a veteran in the game, and has contributed some insightful articles in the past. In his latest piece, “Hip Hop Turns 30“, Greg goes on to discuss the current state of affairs in hip-hop. Hashim disagrees with him on a few points. Personally, I’m to much of a Gemini to totally take any side of the issue. There are good points on both sides, but I don’t really expect to hear political messages in music. Sometimes I want to hear Lil Jon, some times I want to hear Common. But I hate when rappers try to do both, talk about their bitches and G-packs while starting the revolution. It’s confusing. Read the articles for yourself.
