KRS 1 Speaking on behalf of the Hip Hop Pioneers and their reasons behind why they’re boycotting the National Museum of HipHop.
I was confused. I think I can see both points, which led me to an even more interesting point. Who owes the Pioneers? It seems that there is some discrepancy with some $$$ that folks should be given and who’s right it is to even build the HipHop Museum. While there is no question that the pioneers should not be feasting off of crumbs, an interesting question is: who’s responsibility is it to make sure they’re fed?Should anyone who has made an album give a percentage back to Bambaata and Herc? HipHop is a billion dollar industry based on what these dj’s did in the park. There is no doubting the global influence. I think a National Museum of HipHop is a great honor and would help to make sure that our History doesn’t become His Story. Still there is politics at every level. See if you can make any sense out of this. Shouts out to the homie JillzWorth who shot me the link earlier.
