No one can say that Hip-Hop torch bearers like KRS-One (above, and below) didnt resist the calamity that has belfallen Hip-Hop as a result of the White Power Structure's manipulation of the culture.
There was a resistance, and it produced countless amazing tunes critiquing what was taking place. We lost that battle, the war looks like far from being won by us, but the resistance continues.
Hip-Hop has been colonised, and its waiting to be liberated and returned to its former owners.
How this colonisation occurred, is a long story which itself has produced many a documentary and book analysing and charting this historical shift.
