We Are The World 2010

I liked the new version overall… but to be honest, I thought Lil Wayne, and some of the other brothas using autotune to sing was real weak. Not trying to sound like an old man, but we are the world ought to have been about talent.  The black R&B singers represented well, aside from Wyclef, Kanye, and Will.I.AM, the rappers were whack (don’t get me started on that corny rap chant)!  What u think, freestyle with me…

Flash back to Lauryn Hill’s call for true Hip Hop

I love this song, and obviously Lauryn Hill is one of Hip Hip’s finest artists.  I love the line “”music is supposed to inspire, so how come we ain’t gettin no higher”.  There have always been mainly two main streams of hip hop… why are the stereotypical performers the most popular, and what effect is music having on the psyche of the next generation? Freestyle with me…
