Brother Dyson's comments on the state of Hip Hop always make compulsive reading and his articlein a recent edition of "Ebony" magazine is a typical case in point. With current Hip Hop leaving a lot to be desired, the likes of Nas and Eminem represent hope for the genre. The social message in Nas' track "I Can" for instance not only advices and admonishes the younger generation but is also a crash course on aspects of African History. Eminem likewise has always rhymed conscious. The political message (aided by a compelling video) in the track "Mosh" addresses US foreign policy and above all encourages youths to be more politically conscious by exercising their right to vote. Detractors have often dismissed HipHop as violent, vulgar and anti-social. Good that certain emcees can render this notion skewed and misguided. Hip Hop lives!
