Comments on hip-hop: hip-hop is like sports, where you get to exhibit talents, the mind state, humanity, touch the life of emcees, express the mind of the streets, preach positivity and most of all love.Todays new generation artists ignore this, so I think we should encounter hip-hop violence, negativity and elevate.
