HIPHOP, my n*gga......hiphop.....this not a research paper on drugs, its in regards to the drug culture of hiphop........now was hiphop around in the 60's or 70's.............comprehension skills go along way my dude, but respect on the view point........
again, the drugs were always there, the difference is that early hip hop was a news paper an ear to the streets. when you go back as far as early too short, rakim, nwa, public enemy, even fresh prince and beastie boys....hip hop talked about what was going on in the everyday lives of everyday ppl...back then hip hop reflected what was really going on in the artist eyes.
hip hop was artist driven then, corporations were still figuring out how to make money from it.
now hip hop is ran by corporations who tell these artist whats is acceptable to rap about. most of these multi millionaire rappers that you look up to are just highly paid employees following command just like you do at your job.
its advertising, its commercials, pay a rapper to say ciroc in his verse ciroc sales go up, hottest rapper on the planet is a blood, so are all of his "true" fans now....
these rappers are nuthin but highly paid uncle toms who will do anything for money! this includes being the pied piper of the black race
