Is Rap Music A Black Mans Hustle and A White Mans Paradise

Rap Music is the new american meal ticket. Every since the emerging of rap music in the  70’s, with the Sugar Hill Gang, rap music has been a

staple in the black communities quest for fame and fortune.  But, the opposite has been going on since its main stream inception. Black artist have not seen the best of times with the corporations they worked for. Many black artist were given crappy deals which lead to them being broke in the long run. It wasn’t till you had guys like Russel Simmons, Eazy E, J Prince, Suge Knight, Master P, Sean Combs, and others who really sought to own and control the label and the music they were putting out.

Most of the music is distributed by corporations who are ran by white men, and these men have no real connection to the culture. White male executives in hip hop seem to have total ownership, and control of the masters and the music. One music executive Bryan Turner, said of the rap group NWA, “I know white kids in the suburbs, would love to hear the message being spit about the life of black urban youth in america. ” So, with the help of groups like NWA, artist like Easy E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Master P, and the whole west side squad, Priority Records went on to sale and distribute millions of records which is some of the most prolific music in rap history.  Bryan Turner and his team became some of the richest executives in rap music back in the 90’s and early 2000’s before cashing out.

During the early stages of these artist careers some where given bullshit contracts which couldn’t even help keep the lights on. As you seen in the movie Straight Out of Compton, Ice Cube had to go into Bryan Turner’s office with the baseball bat to get he just due due to inaccurate accounting with his royalty checks. But, things like this was the norm in the music industry when dealing with these label executives.

Another major player in the white mans paradise of black music is Jimmy Iovine who was instrumental in helping Death Row records become one of the most highly selling labels in music history let alone rap music. Rick Rubin, Lyor Cohen, Jerry Heller, Bryan Turner and other white music executives have helped to put black music on the map making billions while some artist were living hand to mouth with bad contracts.

Rap music afforded these white executives the opportunity to make an incredible living off  black artist while most artist in the music industry lived broke only pretending to be rich, while just gaining fame as a measuring stick for wealth.

Obama Care is On Its Last Leg

Obama Care is in danger, and many Democrats, are sending a warning to Republicans that repealing Obama Care will result in major chaos. Sylvia Mathews Burwell is issuing a grave warning to Republicans: Repealing Obamacare will result in “chaos.” Burwell, President Barack Obama’s secretary of Health and Human Services, told CNN

Wednesday that dismantling the Affordable Care Act will hit millions of Americans’ healthcare coverage, result in a spike in premiums and unleash widespread uncertainty across the insurance market. She warns that if you have a son 26 who is on the policy and its repealed his coverage goes away. A  spike in premiums will cause many to lose their health care insurance. – CNN

By having to change insurance companies, or repealing it, it could cause insurance companies to drop you as a covered party. Obama Care has been the primary care for most uninsured Americans. As Donald Trump prepares to take office he has stated “he will repeal Obama Care,” because its to expensive.  Trump believes by making the insurance market an open market it would allow for competitive insurance premiums for most Americans.

Obama is working hard with the republicans and new elect president Donald Trump to keep Obama Care in its current state. But, many republicans have spoken out against Obama Care and said its to expensive for the average American family. The deadline for Obama Care is December 15, 2016. I myself have asked how in the hell can a single male be asked to pay $230.00 dollars a month for health insurance. I believe newly elect President Donald Trump would make health insurance real competitive an affordable for the working class.

Trump has nominated Georgia Republican rep. Tom Price to be Burwell’s successor at the Department of Health and Human Services. An orthopedic surgeon, the Republican congressman has authored several versions of an Obamacare replacement plan and is Capitol Hill’s most outspoken critic.

This may be Obama Care’s last stand. The house that Obama built is divided and the deck of cards are falling slowly. Trump and the republican party are looking to improve on what was once great.

Lets see what happens
