This three-part special features a passionate, lively and opinionated debate that tackles many sensitive issues, including: hip-hop’s relationship with criminality and the streets, snitching, police profiling and brutality; the images of Black women in hip-hop; and the embarrassment, pride and confusion Blacks feel over hip-hop’s public airing of the community’s “dirty laundry.”

    I am a BIG fan of Hip-Hop, but these artist have to stop lying by saying ” we are a mirror of the hood” NO YOUR NOT! Most rappers talk about money this, bitch that, my car this. That’s not the reality for most people in our neighborhoods. We are struggling – be the voice to help elevate not keep us down. Stop lying and start helping! Point.Blank.Period.

    Amen Melissa. They were spouting excuse after excuse not to be responsible and act like dignified black people.

  • I agree with Melissa also. They don’t won’t to say that they are in it for the money not for the love of Hip Hop.

  • I agree. None of the artists want to take responsibility for their actions. The images that are portrayed in these videos are polluting the minds of black people especially those of our impressionable youth. These music artists are held in such high regard and emulated so much that if they chose to display some positive images of black men and women, they could change a generation.
