The idea that violence within our community, against one brother by another brother, is tolerated and instigated, propagated and promoted through the script of the music we listen to and dance to, is the greatest tragedy of all.
We all cry tears but when will we do something to change these behaviors within our community that glorify violence? There is no resting in peace when one’s mother will wake up everyday and a tear will come from her eyes or from her heart. In order to change, we must have outspoken individuals speaking who have platinum plaques and platinum principles that will forward hip-hop in a way and in a direction that alleviates and eliminates the destruction of life based on the promotion of culture. When one only echos the idea that hip-hop in irrevocably intertwined with negativity and violence, one does a disservice to the outspoken individuals (including hip-hop advocates, artists, organizations) that already exist.


Your stance is understandable — this was a tragic loss, and violence and hip-hop do cross paths all too often. The distinction needs to be made, loudly and repeatedly, so that people will understand the two are not the same.
This is an explanation for the retaliation, the decimation of Bankroll Fresh, a loss to the entire community. The ideologies that are spread virally in the music are destroying the Black community and slighting any progress that needs to be made from an intellectual and cultural identity perspective. Are we suffering from psychological paralysis and not willing to do anything about something that is systematically destroying hip-hop culture and those young future leaders whose lives are cut short? She will hear the name or see the name or see the picture of a son or daughter, a baby lost over something that was unexplainable, unacceptable, but tolerated in a culture that still celebrates the pimp, the gangster, the criminal, the trick, the con, the dope game and the decimation and extinction proposition being promoted to young African American men and women still in this century. Any opportunity not used to highlight them with press coverage or support them with donations, is a wasted opportunity.


But we cannot continue to ignore the people and organizations who are *actually* working to correct the perception of hip-hop and to use all of its amazing qualities to better its communities, and humanity. The life of a hip-hop artist holds even less value, as these are commonly individuals who participate in an art form that often facilitates that very extinction. Enjoy some of our favorite Tony Robbins quotes! Tony Robbins Quotes“The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. The tragic connection between hip-hop stars, death and mourning seems to be a tradition, a growing cycle of birth, life, death and mourning that echoes similar ailments existing in the African American community, as a whole.
Indeed, tragedies such as the death of Bankroll Fresh happen everyday to some young, Black person who is trying to make it in a system that seems to want them all dead.
