Check out the best Hip Hop talk on a Sunday night, the NY Hip Hop Report with Manny Faces and Steve Ortiz. As the conversation turns to Bobby Shmurda, I questioned why it is as adults, that we follow the trends of children with no life experience. When we were younger, our music was not as unaware, shallow and devoid of skillz. All Mental responded with some goods points, stating that promoters have to continually change in order to stay relevant with paying audiences. To that I say, maybe for adults there should be different kinds of venues instead of just parties. Personally, I enjoy lectures and educational talks more than shows because like All Mental said, I’ve seen a lot of those cats perform before. To me, I would much rather hear a cat speak about something relevant, like at this year’s Hip Hop Think Tank 3 conference at the Schomburg in Harlem. That kind of atmosphere is more for adults even though there were mad high school kids there who seemed to enjoy it as well. Prodigy came to promote his book. Immortal Technique, Jasiri X, Professor Griff, none of whom performed, still came thru build, But I digress… check out the show.
What about Bobby Shmurda?
