It is awesome that we can look at 9th wonder the famous producers reach back to his home town and start a hip hop summit..
I can totally admire the fact that this will take place in his home town of North Carolina.
The main function of this summit will be to create a constructive dialogue between industry professionals and students, in order to achieve a greater understanding of the development of Hip Hop and how to obtain jobs in the entertainment industry.
Now do we understand the culture of hip hop realistically does the average kid even care about hip hop any more. I have to say that we need events like this because as a lover of Hip Ho p I have to say I think we are in the state of apathy about education, spiritual growth but we are also deprived of the real true essence of hip hop.
When are we going to get rid of the era where kid’s don’t even know about the sugar hill gang and the beastie boys and KRS 1. In fact when are we going to realize that the culture extends down to the south not only for crunk music but for thought provoking lyrics coming from the legendary SCARFACE.
I have to say big ups to 9th Wonder and Atlantic Records for bringing out this summit.
Not to forget one of my notable rappers of this time now, T.I. has joined in on this well thought out event to introduce his boys and girls club involvement.
if this is what it takes for hip hop to be understood by the youth then we need to do it and dedicate ourselves to keeping hip hop culture alive.
