I'm taking it back to 2002 y'all!! Remember "Get By" by Talib Kweli? This song gives me instant vibes to progress in life. Earlier last week I got upset with the current state of Hip-Hop. Now the music is dumbed down and reduced to a catchy beat and nothing is gained. This isn't what real Hip Hop was about.
Being born in the 90s; I never experienced the authentic lyricism from artists. In 2012 a documentary on Hip-Hop directed by Ice T was released .There were interviews by various artists and their contribution to the industry. See the trailer and music Monday throwback below.
