People often forget what hip-hop is, what it came from, what it means. It’s not just a popular form of entertainment. It’s not just the most influential form of artistic expression since, oh I don’t know #heiroglyphics
It’s not just kids running around smoking weed, waving props, displaying teen angst, and pushing for #change by using their own voice and free will to impact human consciousness. Yes, it is all that but so much more.
In Hip-Hop #humanity has a permanent #archive of what is happening on #Earth right here, right now, during the most #chaotic times the #planet has seen since the last #MassExtentionEvent
Hip-Hop is provocative and with this comes influence. Where there is influence there is power. Hip-Hop is #fire for a reason. When #oppressed people are under a #system of #tyranny that is almost completely impossible to break #free from, #marginalized people always find a way to be heard, seen, understood, recognized, remembered. Hip-Hop is literally the Black African American oracle tradition of passing down our life stories for the purposes of imprinting the next generations with our consciousness. It can’t be stopped any more than the #TransAtlanticSlaves using coded messages to break free via the #undergroundrailroad
We are #all #BornFree and this #UniversalTruth cannot be denied.
Where once we were underground, #HipHop helped bring the #struggle for #BlackLife #AboveGround so that the #world could see #WhatReallyHappenedHere
The world caught wind of our tales, our history, our struggle, our plight, our poetry, our low’s, our highs, our ebb and flow, our lyrical expression, our growth, our strength, courage, fortitude, our determination to rise above the #noise . When the world caught wind of all these changes, she rose up in unison with us to #cryout #change
Hip-Hop speaks to the #soul of all those who ever felt they were #trapped by a bully who thought you couldn’t fight, speak, defend yourself, or dream. No, they think we are all too weak.
You see see hip-hop teaches our progeny who we are, where we have been, where we are going. It enlightens the world about the good, the bad, the ugly. It holds up a reflection of the inner demons of #society
Hip-Hop baptizes the world with fire, after all isn’t that what the prophecies state? Hip-Hop ignites and unites, then organizes, reprises, and reframes into better days. Hip-Hop brings humanity out of the dark, simply by being honest and maintaining that steady speed. Hip-Hop changed everything just like #Obama and #Floyd , two men, two destinies, same pathway, highest of destiny… #TheWindOfChange
Hip-Hop is a modern art form of an ancient tradition dating back older than languages. Back then there was just one tongue we all spake. Pun intended you see, that’s how some people see, envisioning the past, present, and future simultaneously. Hip-Hop is a #bridge uniting all #PeoplesTribesNationsTongues to join as one in a consensus, #NoMoreTyranny
It can be said for sure, this old world has come to an end. Hip-Hop has catalogued this event, it was written long ago in a book no one has ever read. What rises in the #ash we all #cocreate together, simultaneously, like friends in a dream racing to the end. We can choose to co-create consciously or unconsciously, either way we reach our destination. What will you think of yourself then?
Hip-Hop is much more than #GunsNalcohol ya’ll, more than about being an #outcast or a #sexualfantasy between friends.
Hip-Hop is artistic expression of each unique individual experiencing life as a Black American, #collectively
#ShoutOut #OTHBeezy for expressing your experience, wonder who is #listening and #watching and #wating and #dreaming #growing in #consciousness
#EmbraceWoke #EmbraceConscious #EmbraceExpansion
is an expression
of the #direction
Round the way
start all over
Hip-Hop is who we are
#struggle and #oppression
are what #crippled us
so we #create
In order to demonstrate
It ain’t all about
