And not all of us are wallowing in squalor.. Just like not all of us are drillin/swipin. Would push back on that..There’s a lot of space to tell a lot of stories.

That conscious rap can be equal parts present in its reality and forward-thinking and aspirational. Talib’s “Get By” is a perfect example. Some conscious rap celebrates the underground so much that mainstream notoriety or 💰 is viewed as a liability. The energy repels it.

What If Conscious Rap isn’t Mainstream Because of Conscious Rappers & Not The Industry? Nah, this was a good read. Especially for Hiphop heads like me & ⁦⁩. You put syntax to a few ideas I’ve been tossing around in my head lately.

This was Trump's epic meltdown on 60 Minutes and it was even worse than reported. Trump literally ran away because he didn't like the questions.

Two more: Of course, this is all confirming my point to you that folks are going to want to eventually get your extended thoughts on black representations, media, entertainment, etc. Just saying.

We don’t go looking for offense. Blk folk looking for something to laugh at on a day off just like y’all. But imagine what it’s like when the jokes at your expense perpetuate outdated tropes days after an African massacre AND it isnt funny on top of that..Still love Adele 🤛🏿

I honestly don’t give af, goofy. It just wasn’t funny. South Park has nuance. Crass with commentary. That’s why it works. At what point did you actually laugh? Aside from when Adele laughed? If you like knock knock jokes, just say that.
