    So here is one thing that I propose to help change the situation. I am calling out to the UZN to get more involved in helping us out down here. Plan some big events here like you do up there. Bring the air up there to the beach down here. Help us get some solid chapters going here in a few cities. Strong but peaceful chapters. Get with Zulu Red and help him get something going. Zulu is a major driving force behind Hip Hop, they go hand in hand, so why are we not organizing. And rep for us the way we rep for y’all up there in New York. And many of us (like me) show mad love for the Bay Area scene and Zulus as well. We need some interaction. When heads come to Atlanta (like Public Enemy currently) take the extra step to come to Miami or West Palm. The more we rep real hip hop, the less they can stop it. It is infectious. But everyone wants what’s popular down here. Let’s make Real Hip Hop popular, like it was once before (Fresh Fest, Run DMC/Beastie Boys, etc.). The UZN has the most worldwide unity of all in the Hip Hop community. I know Florida could learn something from that. But it’s up to us to make it happen and get it crackin’.

  2. That’s what Public Enemy front man Chuck D said at an emergency meeting held yesterday, Feb. 22, at the National Black Theatre in Harlem. The Supreme World Council of the Universal Zulu Nation, which was established by Afrika Bambaataa, considered by many to be the founding father of hip hop, called the meeting to address the need for the reinstatement of balance, respect and love in hip hop music.
