Posted by dangerousnegro on

The Future of Blacks in Hip Hop: Masters or Slaves? By Tre Millyanz “Ma, what is this crap you’re listening to?  That’s old white people music!” This is a statement talking about Hip Hop I imagine happening 20 to 30 years from now.  Granted, it’s hard for us to imagine now, but look at what happened to Jazz, Rock, and even Country (a little bit).  Sure there are Black artists involved in all of them, but, as the originators of each of those genres, we are underrepresented relative to where we were in the past.  Most importantly, on the business...
