The first generation of rap just wanted the world to know, who they were, and what the culture was in their part of the hood. As the years evolved, some changes have been made and the ghetto has more than just a dark skinned face. Now the ghetto looks like any other street, city, town, or block, with a rainbow of colors that walk into and out of the buildings that form the walls.
As I comb through the many messages left on the walls of a face book, or the tweets of a follower, I hear the mood of the music. The signature card floats about, each message and graces almost every page. Does the music forever Make The Mood?
You tell me. I begin with the mixtape of King Issa hosted by DJ Holiday. His tracks take us on a journey that begins with a favorite tale of “David and Golliath”. After a “Tag” we encounter “A hundred ft Gorilla Zoe”. (I am reminded of the book “The Odyssey” http://www.mythweb.com/odyssey/index_ulysses.html ). Moving through the streets paved with lyrics that express a many thoughts we visit with “Dear Mama” ft TC and finish the journey at ‘Arriven”. How befitting. You can stream these songs by following this link. http://www.datpiff.com/Issa-King-Issa-mixtape.301131.html
