MISREPRESENTATION OF A CULTURE BY A FOREFATHER
By Quadeer “M.C. Spice” Shakir
Kool Herc is undeniably one of the forefathers of Hip-Hop Culture. No doubt about it. But the past three years, a shift in attitude towards the Universal Zulu Nation, who we are, and what we represent, became obvious when Herc asked that we exclude his name from all of our Hip-hop Culture anniversary flyers. We didn’t know Herc would underhandedly misquote himself, and misrepresent the Culture by saying Hip-Hop Culture began on August 11, 1973. There are facts, and unfortunately, Herc did not give them when he made this statement in a news interview on Channel 7 New York. Nor, did he clear it up when he further promoted false facts to NPR News.

Ice-T thinks today’s pop stars are “delusional,” Champagne- swilling shopaholics.
NEW YORK – Since its beginnings in the 1970s, rap music has transformed from an underground, street-based sound to a definitive part of pop culture, transcending race and becoming one of the strongest – and most prolific – voices of today’s generation. But at the Grammy Awards, rap has had a long-lasting losing streak in the top categories.
HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?
Written by: Lana Ave.
The informal use of the word “grind,” which is to work or study laboriously, has historically been adopted by the Hip-Hop culture. We’ve taken on the pride that’s associated with working hard to get what we want and own it. However, when I look around at the new generation of aspiring rappers and singers I wonder if the intensity of the grind has been lost or diminished.
