Maafa Sankofa- Let’s Grow

 

I love this video by Maafa Sankofa.  It has a great message. It’s a great rap song about black consciousness and  how we have to keep growing in our consciousness.  I like the video images and the entire concept.

Today’s Rap music makes me miss Tupac

Young Thug...

This is rapper Young Thug wearing a dress.  He says he’s not gay.  I have my doubts about that.

Camron1...

Rapper Camron looking pretty in pink. I’m glad that trend of brothers wearing pink didn’t catch on.

Siya..

Rapper/actress Siya is considered one of the hottest up and coming rappers.  Yep..she’s a lesbian.

Cee Lo...

Rapper Cee Lo Green used to drop some good lyrics back in the day.  Now he’s a complete sellout!  He knows he looks ridiculous in that dress!

Rapper Dphil...

Rapper DPhil is making quite the statement wearing lipstick.  This homo-thug culture is killing the mind of black youth.  Notice the all seeing eye in the background?  I guess he’s down with the agenda right?

Angel Haze..

Rapper Angel Haze(on the right) doesn’t hide her sexuality.  She is very open about being a lesbian.  The girl next to her is her girlfriend  model Ireland Baldwin. So even the gay black women hook up with white girls??  God help us!!

Rapper Kaoz...

Rapper Kaoz is trying to be a crusader for gay rappers.  I’m sure you notice his rainbow beanie.  Is this the type of rap music we need right now?  The sad part is a homosexual/lesbian rapper can get more acceptance by mainstream media than a pro-black rapper.  This shows you want the media wants for our people.  Tupac wasn’t perfect,he had his faults.  But at least he tried to speak to the plight of his people.  He gave us songs like Dear Mama,Brenda’s Got a Baby,Changes and White Man’s World.  I don’t think any of these talentless clowns will be inspiring our people anytime soon.  Hip hop is in a really bad state.  I know the future looks bleak  but…Keep your head up.

Dead Prez- The Awakening feat. Umar Bin Hassan


This is a very nice song by rap duo Dead Prez. It’s a very soothing track with African chants. They are also joined by Umar Bin Hassan from the legendary group The Last Poets. This is from their cd Information Age. It’s a great cd! I think you’ll really enjoy it!

Brotha’s Keepa- Ghetto Tears


This is a great song by the group Brotha’s Keepa. The song is called Ghetto Tears. The lyrics perfectly describe the pain and suffering in many black neighborhoods. The lyrics and harmonies are a perfect match. Enjoy!
