Wow...very impressive and informative...even tho' hip hop came out when I was a teen...I've never really embraced. However, your article makes me appreciate the message. ;)
Thanks for sharing and enlightening a middle-aged mom!

I note that the words you used were benificial in the fact that you gave a balanced rendention of my old hiphop family that helped me think of a master plan. To do what I need to do thanks.

WE NEED MORE YOUNG SISTERS LIKE YOURSELF TO GIVE MORE OF YOUR WISDOM TO OUR SOCIETY. THE LYRICS IN A LOT OF HIP-HOP MUSIC DEGRADE OUR SISTERS AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO DISRESPECT THEMSELVES AS WELL AS THIER SISTERS. THANK YOU MY SISTER FOR SPEAKING OUT AND SHARING!
ONE LOVE,
