Do Hip Hop Artist Give Back?

hiphop
Hip hop music is the most controversial form of music. Most people thought that it would be a fade. Well over 30 years later it still stands strong today. Hip hop music is one of my favorite forms of music. I grew up when most rappers told stories and actually took time to perfect their craft. Now, I do not believe that is the case. What happen to pure talent, charisma and hustle getting you over the hump.

I am tired of seeing 30 and 40 year olds trying to fight each other, to bring attention and hype to themselves. Not only that they are millionaires. If I want to see millionaires fight, I watch Boxing or MMA. 90% of the rappers are not thugs anyways. They are actors. Now they might be surrounded by gangsters and thugs. But, there reality to real life has gotten mixed up somewhere in their pursuit for fame.

Where is the leadership and devotion to your community that you glorify? If is funny how much you continue to say that you want people to know where you came from and how hard it is to grow up in the inner city, but no one seems to every see you anymore. Screaming your hoods name on records surely is not enough.

You wonder why I am not calling out other forms of entertainment. Well they are not making money off the name of their city, hood, street, clique, or block.
If you know a rapper that is an active part of his community please let me know. I mean giving back to his communities through foundations, parks, time, money, ect…………. I am not just talking about coming around during Christmas and Thanksgiving.
