HipHop's birthplace sold!

On August 11, 1973, in the first floor recreation room of 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, West Bronx, New York City, HipHop was born. It was on that day that Kool DJ Herc, known as "the father of HipHop", and his sister threw the first HipHop house party. Herc, who got his name from all his muscles (Hercules), said that no one from the so called HipHop community came or donate money to save the birthplace of HipHop. It would have been peanuts for certain people to save this historical place. But where were these cats, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, P. Diddy, Fat Joe, Russell Simmons, all the Lil's and so on? The people, who paved the way for a (sub-) culture to become a worldwide culture and movement, asked for their support, but no support was given. Maybe it's easy to find out why. This could probably happen, because these people are only RAPPERS, who want to benefit from something called HipHop but are not interested to give HipHop anything back at all. Instead of keeping it true to the culture and be all about "peace, love, unity & having fun", they rather "earn a little MORE paper", "make it rain on them hoes" and are "ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS!" and not about HipHop, because there is no "HipHop running through their veins".

Without the soul and the heart there is no HipHop, cause everything you're doing then is misusing and abusing something which came out of the culture for monetary reasons. That's what these dudes have proven. That's not what HipHop is about! That's NOT HIPHOP! What are you about? Live HipHop! BE HipHop!

In peace, love & unity
