What's The Message of Popular, Mainstream Hip Hop

The videos, links I post, I'm not vouching for as being 100% factual or even right. Some of them like this one, even feature some folks I would be very skeptical of. Like Allan Watt, for example.

But looking at some elements of truth, the bigger picture with an alternative view point is what I am looking to do by posting them. My belief is that some of this is true but not in every case. And I feel like the guy that infers that many entertainers are not nice people and want money. "They are like nothing. They do it for the money, they don't see the big picture."

The Boulet is a Mason like college fraternity and many popular rappers/celebrities are known to be part of that as well as being Prince Hall Masons. I just want to make it 100% clear that I am not against these organizations. I know many good people who are yes, Masons.

Just more interested on where the messages that I see in entertainment and music are really coming from. Being even where I am in the entertainment industry, you'ld have to be blind to not see that certain material almost always gets promoted over more positive material. Why is that?

  1. why is that? well "work hard, stay in school and be a goody two shoes making something positive of your life" simply lacks the testosterone and adreneline fueled appeal of "got my AK packin, tha niggaz I'm whackin', the whips I'm jackin givin' you a smackin'!" for young males.
    Damn I just made all that up, it's pretty good. Maybe I'm the next 47 yo white male rap phenom. Not.
