Martin Luther King
They all had one thing in common...
A Movement !!!!!
The Government saw the potential in each of these individuals as leaders..
Many don't realize but Martin Luther King was 25 years old when he led that March for the bus boycots
Tupac Shakur in his 20's had a nation of 70's and 80's babies locked into a charasmatic force... that was challenged the Police, the Government, and in any *** rapper, or actor for that matter. All the Pac played both sideds his Movement will last and spark the next generation of Militants...
Easy E had incredible pull with the gangland youth and OG's across america
Just imagine for a second if Pac and Easy E where alive during Katrina or Jenna 6,,,,, Hmmmm the real MC's would be ready to ride on the Government...
But Hip Hop has long since been bought ..Look at the Jay-z's and Luda's to go diamond and Plat.. you must not challenge the New World Order... or its way of life aka controll.....
So give em MORE BLING MORE ICE MORE [EXPLETIVE] MORE RIMS MORE GUNS MORE DOUGH MORE BET MORE CRIBS MORE MTV MORE VIDEOS MORE (FAKE REALITY SHOWS)..
And we should all keep an eye on KANYE WEST....because he has crossed lines and has not been subtle with his approach... So when Whitey is watching you .. and aragonce and confidence shine through... DANGER ! The second he can step aside materialism and focus on his people, he could very well pick up the backpackers...and next gens, and start his own movement ... REAL TALK
