Donald Trump announced his plan to do extreme vetting with immigrants coming into the country. Many new immigrants, with visas or folks becoming citizens of the United States, would go through Trumps extreme vetting process screening in order to be allowed into the country. Trump feels like we need to lock down on allowing people into the country until we get a handle on terrorism.
Is the war on terror really about the immigrants coming into the country ? What is your take on Donald Trumps new extreme vetting plan ?
KRS-One is catching hell from the streets, for his recent comments involving the allegations about the molestation charges against Afrika Bambaata. Krs One said “anyone

who has a problem with Afrika Bambaatta should quit hip hop.” This statement has not been taken well by some in the hip hop community, and they are calling for an all out ban on Krs One’s music from radio. Krs One feels like the man who created hip hop, and the man who is allegedly charged for molestation are really two different individuals. Krs One was quoted as saying by All Hip Hop instead of backing down, KRS doubled down on his views about the situation during a Q&A in Birmingham, England.
“When you’re talking about Afrika Bambaataa, first of all, you’re talking about the person who invented Hip Hop, not participated in it,” said KRS-One. “There was no Hip Hop before Afrika Bambaataa. Let’s start there. So anyone who has a problem with Afrika Bambaataa should quit Hip Hop.”
He is a disgrace to every living man, woman and children all over the world. He poses a real threat to every child in this world.
He is worse than any catholic priest who has molested a child. Any DJ, radio station or video show still playing his music SHAME ON YOU. – All Hip Hop
The hip hop community has been trying to find a thin line between the statements dropped by Krs One and the feelings of Ronald Savage. At some point, anyone who is a man of morals and good standing, would not want to see any child molested and hurt by its elders. I don’t think KRS One would be in favor of anyone molesting children either. The other question is how long does the hip hop community deal with the pain before moving on ? And realize that Afrika Bambaata will be dealt with if he is guilty by the hands of God ?
Chance The Rapper honored MuhammadAli at the 2016 ESPY Awards last night. Chance has a new song that pays tribute to the late great boxer. Chance sung a very cool ballad that showed the champion Muhammad Ali in a very good light. Chance The Rapper has been quite from the music scene for some time. Chance just added more fuel to his already awesome music career by performing last night’s song. It was good to hear the Chicago native come with some real laid back music that all people can enjoy. Chance did a spectacular job of honoring Muhammad Ali at the 2016 ESPY Awards.
The Espy Awards also honored Kobe Bryant, Peyton Manning, and Abby Wambach.
Is Kayne West hip hop ? Kayne West released his video Famous some weeks ago with all your favorite celebrities like Donald Trump, Bill Cosby, Taylor Swift, George Bush, Ray J, and Kim Kardashian just to name a

few. Has the hip hop star has manage to push the envelope again, or has he lost his flavor with a video like this ? Kayne West seems to be losing his connection with the hip hop culture, and getting more into porn with a video like this. Hip hop has nine elements that are involved ( breaking, graffiti, emceeing, and entrepreneurship etc.) . Kayne is defying hip hop with this shit right here and breaking a few of the elements. He truly believe he is adding to the culture of hip hop but he is not. This Video looks more like a big ass orgie, thank a rap music video, that all these so called wax figures have participated in.
Kayne West is moving further and further away from hip hop. Lame Ya is looking more like a gay male than an authentic hip hop artist. Kayne West is not hip hop in my opinion, and is damaging the culture by putting this type of shit out. Now many people know that Kayne has been trying to get his clothing line out to the world for sometime. Is this the reasoning for a video like this ? Kayne West is not hip hop. He has released several pieces of clothes that are in my opinion horrible, and look more like slave attire than clothes people would want to wear. What is this mans role in hip hop, is he about the music, or is he about pushing a clothing line that has no merit?
Many people who love hip hop got a weird feeling when Kayne West debuted his video to the world. And rightfully so, cause that shit look like an orgie, and puts you in the mind set of folks experimenting with uncultured sexual behaviors. Kayne West seems to be moving more and more away from hip hop and more towards trying to kiss these superstar clothing designers asses.
Is Kayne West hip hop or not ?
I might be wrong but hey don’t shoot the messenger
The Bet Awards was thrilling an exciting because Jesse Williams was the topic. I was receiving texts and phone calls last night about the Bet Awards. The main table talk discussion was about Jesse Williams, ” The Greys Anatomy star ,” gave black folks the what for when it came to how we as a people act in black society.
Many may not know Jessie Williams is a Biracial African American male whose mother is white and father is black. Jesse seems to be the only cat who is not afraid to use his celebrity status to speak to the issues that effect Black America. At a time when most folks are crying for civil rights and gay rights. Jesse has hit a nerve that many have been crying for someone to hear for sometime. Is Jesse Williams the new face of Black Americas four hundred year old problem called racism ? Now many will insult and dispute Jesse’s stance, because he is a mixed raced black man with blue eyes, light skinned skin tone, and white privileged. But, the question is is Jesse less black, because he comes from a mixed family back ground, or is he the perfect face to tell black folks and white folks when to go to hell and come back ?
The speech has been broadcast all over the world. Black folks are feeling some level of excitement, because one of our own has spoken out about why Black lives do matter. Jesse was at the Bet Awards to receive the Humanitarian Award for his efforts outside the Hollywood community.
The African American community has been longing for a real leader that young people can take hold to that understands their plight. Is Jesse the new face of Black America who is not afraid to stand up for equal rights and the American civil liberties ?
