can a white rapper “save” hip-hop?

thinkingman

emphatically NO.

THE SAME WAY A BLACK JESUS CAN’T SAVE WHITE PEOPLE.

why should Black people accept or allow a White rapper to ‘save’ Hip-Hop (a historically and traditionally BLACK art, custom, and culture) when White people would NEVER accept a Black figure to be their ‘savior’ in ANY CONTEXT?

but the coldest thing about this dynamic is that Hip-Hop is only dead and dying to BLACK PEOPLE.

to White people, Hip-Hop is THRIVING.

with the current crop of White Hip-Hop poster-children, a White Hip-Hop connoisseur couldn’t be MORE PLEASED or SATISFIED with Hip-Hop of today.

…maybe  that’s the reason why i come across so many White people that deny that Hip-Hop is dead…

Hip-Hop isn’t DEAD because you now have your OWN Hip-Hop; bundled and pre-packaged with a savior that has IRREFUTABLE numbers; fanfare, and ‘mass’-appeal.

why would a White person save (preserver) Hip-Hop and not save the Black people that CREATED Hip-Hop?

BECAUSE

he can profit from the nouveau GENTRIFIED version of Hip-Hop and simultaneously RELATE to it better.
