this Bambata thing is the weirdest thing ever...the fact that he escaped justice is crazy

does Mel mean it in the same way someone would have said back then that michael likes young kids?before the trial ,the accusation were there, people nonchalantly talked ,no f. given


One of the positive of this era is that when a rumor is out there ,computers pute and everybody is investigating .Pre internet era was different.Tons of unverified rumors,that would only be written in magazines or just word of mouth.No journalist would pick them up

i still believe theres a crazy amount of secrets in the 80s ,90s music industry and Hollywood

This is why Hollywood is the devil's playground. R. Kelly = Everybody knew. Weinstein = everybody knew. Cosby= everybody knew or heard about it. What I'm saying is, people be cancelling one celebrity when you should cancel all of them for never speaking up about it. Like I said in the cancel culture thread, it's dumb as hell. Stop idol worshiping. Hypocritical a*s society we live in

Literally a few weeks before the news hit I was talking to good friend who's a legendary local DJ from Baltimore's house music era. We're talking about different artists he dealt with over the years, and he randomly brings up Bambatta. He said he came to a record store back in the early 90's to promote whatever he was doing and had a few young dudes with him. He said all of them seemed trained, and Bambatta was very VERY controlling of these dudes, like unnaturally.

2 maybe 3 weeks later the story broke & I was like wow...But apparently the WHOLE NY knew, it was common knowledge how bam got down

it definitely wasn't common knowledge.
bams era wasnt this era.Bam was always a secluded guy. only people that had ideas would be his inner circle and they wouldn't dare speak because they would be accused of it also

Melle Mel is fu*king joke. If he knew why did he keep fu*king with him?
He was complicit in that sh*t, fu*king greedy coward, now he wants to talk about it after the fact.

He basically admitting to it while simultaneously trying to distance himself from it makes him just as guilty

Its like the whole family knowing that one uncle who touched your niece yet afraid to confront him. That blind eye makes you complicit

Get these n*ggas out of here

He didn’t say that. He meant people from the area and thosewho travelled in the same circles knew.

Cancel culture has y’all soy babies taking things out of context. If you want to hold people accountable hold the local LE to that standard I’m sure they knew/

Because Its not just Bambatta. Any industry where men potray hyper masculinity (wrestling, bodybuilding, etc.) You are going to attract feminine and homos*xual men. Its the reason we have this forum and forums like it.

A good example the album covers from boy groups in the 90s, always risqu and perverse....almost like they were advertising something other than music.....but what do I know? I'm just a tinfoil nut.

Hip Hop was against f*gs and rats back in the days..

The powers that be had to bury that story under the rug.

Bambooty is protected. I hope he dies a thousand deaths.

KRS was looking funny as well. I hope he wasn't doing some strange things for a piece of change or in this case, a deal.

It sounded more like he was insinuating that everyone knew Bam was gay. When Vlad asked him if he knew he was messing with underage boys Mel said he didn’t know, you’d have to ask Bam.

Has Bam ever come out to make a statement about this?

the crazy thing about reputation is that sh*t really does follow you. Gotta protect that sh*t ya whole life (obviously not do fu*k sh*t) but it do follow you. Some people are powerful enough to float above that sh*t. crazy

Keeping it a buck these so-called OGs who demand respect for none other than being born in a certain era are whole clowns, Bambottoms situation proved to me that these MFs don't stand for anything; They were aware this n*gga was molesting CHILDREN and were dapping him up and making songs with him, Matterfact we need to pull out the archive on the mfs who were complicit.
