    Never Ignoring the Original Truth

    I’ve learned that there is no avoiding those people who interpret a rapper’s street cred as materialism, criminal blasphemy, loud, misogyny or homophobia.”

    In my latest book, Hiphop KruZade… Path of a Legend, I devoted an entire chapter to ‘Hiphop and Racism’, one of the many challenges of a Hiphoppa. It’s not just about how to rap, it’s about the Kulture – what makes a rapper who he/she is. Due to my own experience as a master of ceremony especially after I moved to Canada, I’ve realized that there are racists who hate on Hip Hop, deliberately. When we talk Hip Hop, race and credibility are key factors. With that said, here is my list of who I believe are the top rappers/emcees in the game right now [2015].

    I’ve learned that there is no avoiding those people who interpret a rapper’s street cred as materialism, criminal blasphemy, loud, misogyny or homophobia. Since Hiphoppas are outnumbered in Canada, I came to understand the part where “real Niggaz” conceal their street cred so they don’t get discriminated against. What this did was, it added to my experience because it taught me to separate Canadian hustle from the real hustle. I make sure never to seek validation and never mix outside hustle with inside hustle because policies can get in the way.

    I was in Los Angeles months ago when the topic came up. About the Kulture. What’s it like to be from the States while doing Hip Hop in Canada? And, who I thought the top rappers are right now. Of course, I told them about my new book and what I experienced in Canada that’s different – like the deranged folks who called the border trying to get me removed from the country or the fun stuff like being able to write without all the distractions in the States.

    And, who I thought the top rappers are right now.”

    I automatically assumed we were talking about the top rappers of today so I named Eminem, 2 Chains, Nicki Minaj, Drake and Rick Ross. For me it not about who I’m influenced by, or who’s my role models …it’s about the emcees who are killing it right now. I know Eminem is white and every time black people invent a music genre like Jazz, Rock, and Roll or R&B, eventually, white artists pilfer it, give no credit to Blacks and get all the recognition. I know this.

    I know a few Hip Hop heads are not over the situation with Rick Ross being a former correction officer or whatever. Cops have murdered, mortified or profiled so many of us it’s more than a bitter pill if one got in the game and started gaining street cred. But, in the game right now, these are the rappers who are sitting up top. So, with that, I decided to list 10 of my favorite rappers right now… *

    Leaving a Manipulative, Discourteous & Unchaste Companion in the 21st Century

    What is a continuous process where one person systematically diminishes the other’s internal consciousness? That is emotional abuse – the mania of the abuser on the condition of the abused. That obsessive preoccupation may persist throughout their cohabitation. When people have a disciplined conversation, they watch for statistics and findings from various credible studies. Sometimes I find that problematic, as we now have biased investors, researchers, analysts, or scientists who determine the results they want before starting a study.

What king puts a ring on it, holds it down for twenty-something years, and then provides some kid with permission to smash his queen? I do not believe that for one second. The absurd part is Jada had already caused this havoc when she was calling Snoop Dogg out for checking Gayle King. After all that talk, Gayle, and Jada have not apologized to the public for what they did. That’s wrong.

    Saying Never to the Readily Available Free Pornography on the Internet

    Our civilization has gone through more than twenty years with instantly accessible [free] pornography on the web. In these twenty years, we have experienced a pioneering mobile phone revolution that has put the Internet in our pockets, twenty-four hours, and seven days all year long. That is at the same time when the genetic coding of most men dictates that every attractive woman we meet for the first time will arouse us sexually.

    I have made a climactic shift in the way I socialize with people. It’s not only that. These days, you won’t find me looking for new musicians, inviting strangers to see the latest blockbuster, and I don’t buy unproven video games anymore. Anything I touch should have a predefined motive. I have taken a step back. Today my approach in every situation is relatively reasonable. I look at the history of my involvement in a given situation to decide if that is a path worth continuing.
