Do you believe that the power of life and death is in the tongue? Is it ironic that rappers who foresee their deaths through music usually succumb under the same circumstances? Do those same volatile words spoken on a track make another man feel hatred towards their fellow brother? The truth is that rap has a death sentence and it gets more gutter everyday. The world is comprised of opinions, in fact the creation of the Constitution were merely opinions of men. So, why does it bother another person so much to hear harsh words spoken on a track. Why are we dying because of our opinions or story of life. We have waited over 100 years to be heard, yet we fight and kill like field negro’s versus house negro’s. Surely you’re not murdering your brother for washed linen, in which it has no true value, but we are. The soul often corrupted can no longer enjoy being rich because their conscious is clouded. People often say, what about the Government and how they play a role of the destruction of our black culture. My question in return is, why do we play into the trap? Rapping about dying and killing are being spread to the masses, and it is a voluntary modern day genocide. Speaking about your fellow brother with total hate is catchy and thousands have died while getting rich “or die trying”. Rapping about the drugs being sold and spread to the masses leaves DNA of destruction. The power struggle that black men face are connected to identify crisis within because so many black youth are in fatherless homes and has no replica of who a real man is. Mothers are then left to raise him but women can only teach a boy so much. Martin Luther King spoke messages of freedom for the black culture, and his words manifested, so why speak the large messages of hate? Is this destruction of our black man a message from God? Remember Notorious B.I.G. said that he was “ready to die” and ultimately met fate. I could go on from indie to mainstream artist about the death sentences they spoke over their lives but that will not help us overcome this genocide. Do you think the records labels would start investing into positive black music if their was a boycott on the get rich scheme that the hiphop/rap culture brings? Are artists even educated enough to know that most rappers are not even rich? With this genocide the black culture faces, who will be our next great black leaders? Who is ready to spread the mass message of love for our people?
