St. Louis and Chicago connect for a hiphop song

Greetings everyone. This article is just to let the world know that hiphop lives. Hiphop is NOT DEAD it is just not televised on major TV networks and radio stations. The music today that is aired on all the major TV networks and played on all the major radio stations is not hiphop but hipPOP and that is because racism is at work to try destroy what was once a glorious art form and culture created by people of African descent.

The following video showcases 4 emcees (not rappers) keeping the hiphop spirit alive along with the musical element of an up-tempo beat. The four hiphop artists are: So 'N' So X, Lyfestile X, KD Assassin X and Aztec Dinero.

Today's rappers don't appreciate musical instruments in their songs and therefore have disconnected themselves with classical hiphop which was orchestrated by racists record label owners to castigate the art form and kill the true hiphop genre. 

MC and hip-hop philosopher KRS One describes the two terms hiphop and rap with great efficacy, stating that "rap is something that is done, while hip-hop is something that is lived".
There are 4 original elements of hiphop combined with 5 other elements making it a total of nine elements.
The original four temple elements:

The 5 cultural/economical elements:
Street fashion/Lookin fly/Swagg
Street language/Inner city vernacular
Street knowledge/The wisdom of elders that came before you
Street entrepreneur

These nine elements when combined together can help a person, group or record label get rich from hiphop. HipHop was for African Americans to benefit from because of racial discrimination in the work place. If we couldn't get a decent paying job because of the color of our skin then we could apply the 9 elements of hiphop to support our self and our families and make a decent living without the need of the racist establishment. That is why hiphop was compromised because there would have been a million young Black Americans being self sufficient which would then create a new economy and a new class of free-thinking, financially free black people (Amerikkka's biggest nightmare).  With that said, the economical success would then trickle down to our inner cities  and neighborhoods to rebuild our tattered communities. Wow! What an awesome strategy that would have been. The racist and corrupt establishments along with the private sector purposely keep black inner city communities in horrible conditions in which these allegations can be backed up with documentation but that will be for another article.

The label of “hip-hop” today, post-2000, only serves a purpose economically within the industry, allowing artists who, though they may have gotten their start within the hip-hop community, can make pop records and still be classified as “hip-hop/rap” in order to appear at the top of the heap in terms of sales.
