Exploitate The Unsuspected

“We demand an end to the exploitation of our talent by outside forces.”

Can we really stress that point in 9th issue of the Millions More Movement enough? Maybe we should just roll up on rec execs, corporate fat cats, and the docile masses with bullhorns because the games that are being played just keep getting worse. So here we are in 2010 with the launch of a national hip-hop museum on behalf of a generation that culture can’t deny. (though Texas may try) And though many say and feel that a national hip hop museum is long overdue we have to ask is this effort truly reflective of those who have paved the way in Hip Hop or is it just another way to produce profit at our expense? This is some of what KRS had to say:

“Here is what we are dealing with, ladies and gentleman. We have been trying to start a hip-hop museum for over 20 years. In fact, it was Afrika Bambaataa that came up with the idea. However, most of the people who have been behind the hip-hop museum idea seem to always create groups without addressing the pioneers themselves.”
