Screen Shot 2015-01-06 at 9.20.52 PM

Oprah’s Master Class series has a special guest that we’ll all familiar with, the living legend that is Hov. Not only that, but he made a bold statement for his segment, saying that Hip-Hop has done more for racial relations in this country than cultural icons, except for Martin Luther King Jr. The reason he says that is because it impacted more than just those in urban areas, but all over the world.

“With conversations we realize that we’re more alike than we’re separate”

Hip Hop Wake-Up Call

By: Juicy Annie

As you all can see, social media outlets went on a frenzy all last night and will continue to do so as long as Hip Hop is around. Welcome to the music world. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion when it comes to their choice of music and the way an artist chooses to deliver their art, just making that clear. There is a huge difference between people who actually appreciate good music or in this case, an artist’s lyricism and those who feed into the hype. Either way it continues to keep Hip Hop relevant.

Okay, SO, Big Sean dropped a track ft. Kendrick Lamar & Jay Electronica named “Control”. Yeah, he definitely caught people’s attention with this one. According to many around me, these three MC’s have delivered some of the hardest verses of the year. Great look for Sean as he prepares to drop his upcoming album “Hall Of Fame”, K. Dot never ceases to amaze me, and Jay Electronica is just always popping out of no where with some dope content, but I love it, keeps us on our feet. Because of sample clearances, this track won’t appear on Sean’s album, whomp! But, we get to enjoy it anyway. The importance of this blog post is what was said on this track! Is Kendrick really the king of New York and two coasts?

Many and most listeners tend to listen to a track just to pick and choose what they want to talk about followed by their half ass opinions without really looking at what’s being said. Excuse my French. This is why Kendrick stole the show and had everyone talking about his verse and his verse only. K. Dot pointed out artist like J.Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale, Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electronica, Tyler, and Mac Miller, but does this mean that he’s dissin’ them? Absolutely NOT! K. Dot tells them what time it is as well as “I got love for you all but I’m trynna murder you n****s..” This is just a metaphor for a wake up call. Some of these statements just go right over some of these so-called music critics’ heads out there. He is solely telling his fellow MC’s to start bringing work to the table and give us, the fans, what we want to hear. If it’s a battle, or an even better “RAW” track, that’s what we want to hear. Just like that, it set the tone for some inspiration. I bet every studio is booked now.

One more thing, Kendrick Lamar isn’t the king of New York, HOV is. LOL BYE!
