BET Gives ‘Rap City’ the Heave-Ho
The beat is ending at BET’s “Rap City,” the longrunning video program that finally helped vault hip-hop music into the popular mainstream. The network confirmed Wednesday it will replace “Rap City” with a new show, “The Deal,” starting Nov. 10. A farewell episode is planned for “Rap City,” which launched in September 1989. There was speculation yesterday it could run Oct. 29, but a network source said no date has been set. While “Rap City” has drifted over the last three years, frequently changing hosts and time slots, it remains one of the media pillars on which rap’s current popularity was built. “‘Rap City’ is a legendary program that has been crucial in creating awareness for hip-hop music videos that were tailored for the core rap fan,” said Ebro Darden, program director of WQHT (97.1 FM). Hot-97 didn’t switch to a full-time hip-hop format – the first in the country- until four years after “Rap City” went on the air. (Continue Reading…)

    Oh I see you finally made it Asha, took you long enough.
    Well, I suppose it’s better way late and when the discussion has died down than never. {{YAWN}}
    I’m guessing your first paragraph of questions was rhetorical. In the second paragraph I just couldn’t shake the feeling that you were looking in a mirror.
    In any wise, now that you’ve posted your redundant comment, balance and peace have been restored in the universe. Thanks. :~)

    My work here is done. TTFN

    When buying a car, most people specifically plan for that event, for instance they pick out the type of vehicle
    they check on the best prices and the best time of the year or month to buy it, they save money for it, they
    figure out a payment plan and rate, the down payment, the color and the extra features but, when it comes to
    having children…most people don’t have a plan at all. They rarely sit down to talk about it! They take the risk
    screwing around a lot of time without protection (Stupid idea, if you don’t want to get pregnant) They don’t
    think about it, they wait until it happens then worry about planning what to do about or how they can afford it.

    They don’t think of the at least 18 years of care, medical, emergencies, life expenses, education, entertainment,
    child care safety and services etc., They don’t think…Should I plan to raise my own child/children or dump them
    at child care services so others can raise them?! I bet most parent out there today ,don’t know CPR or any basic emergency skills at all, outside of calling 911 alone. Most people with swimming pools don’t know CPR or
    any emergency skills nor do they teach their children. Most don’t have life insurance just in case…U know what!

    People will plan vacations…where to go, how much to save, how long to stay, what things to do when they are
    on holiday but, planning for children takes a back seat to vacation planning, and buying a house or vehicle, just
    to name a few things. How most people prioritize the most important things in their lives such their children is
    just overwhelmingly shocking to me.
