Usually during I’m ‘suited and booted’ (wearing a suit and tie) in downtown Chicago, running into the young brother playing HipHop. He’s a big Curren$y fan. He’ll give me the name of artists, some are really good. Myself, searching for their mixtapes and/or commercial albums. All for use on an upcoming podcast.
Lately, he told me he gotten into lyricism due older members in his family dropping names and titles. New stuff I picked up or older jams ‘Da Fam’ still listen too. So, I’ve opened up and told him about the podcast. Later that week we bumped into each other with ‘Juz Wordz’. He was amazed at the amount of music we had on display:
New School, Old School, Beatstrumentals, Mashups, Unauthorized Remixes, Choice Cuts from Mixtapes, etc.
Now the sharing of info about HipHop music is really growing. Though, we are generations apart.
*Synopsis: Whether in music culture, business/industry, communities (hoods), ethnic culture, etc., these type of relationships have to prosper. If not, nothing will grow. Like my brother Son Ra stated, ‘The elders need the youth for rejuvenation. The youth the elders to pass on the (hidden) knowledge of where things come from. *
