If you've spent the last few months under a rock you've missed a oft-times volatile public campaign, coming from several of Hip Hop's Pioneers, against what is now termed as "Culture Vultures." That is Immoral Opportunists, from OUTSIDE of the Culture, making Millions & Millions EXPLOITING a Board Room-Manufactured Bastardization of Hip Hop. The the loudest voices (Afrika Bambaataa, Brand Nubian's Lord Jamar & former Rocafella Co-Owner Dame Dash) had been marginalized as being bitter or out of touch; but ish got real when Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg disrespectfully insulted recent Rock & Roll Hall Fame Inductee & Hip Hop Icon Chuck D of Public Enemy.
Not known to grant many interviews, Chuck D (along with Bomb Squad Member Keith Shocklee) FINALLY agreed to sit down for a chat with The Combat Jack Show. What comes from that is three hours of Wisdom on Hip Hop's Pioneers & "Game Changers," what could happen if all categories of Hip Hop would work in Unison, Respecting Hip Hop History & Culture, Peter Rosenberg, Lazy Record Label Execs, today's music teaching the youth to be disrespectful, Hip Hop being used as the "New COINTELPRO," raising the Talent Level in Hip Hop, growing up in the 60's & 70's, gaining Knowledge of Self as a youth, How he reluctantly became an emcee & So Much More...
