Following their 21st annual concert, Summer Jam, Hot 97was criticized by hip-hop pioneer and Public Enemy front man Chuck D.

In multiple tweets that lasted over the course of a few days, Chuck D touched on monetization and the cultural responsibilities that radio stations have on the mass, especially considering the role Hot 97 has had on the culture for supporting local acts and becoming a mainstay.

Chuck D blasted the station.


Ebro Darden and Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97 defended the station, responding to Billboard. While they agreed with some of Chuck D’s talking points, they did place some of the ownership on fan involvement and album sales and how they influence radio.

“I think there’s validity to what he’s saying as to, ‘I guess Hot 97 could be more local,’” Darden replied. “But people that listen to us when we research the songs don’t vote those songs high enough to stay around. I have this debate, and I put the onus back on the public to participate.”

“I’m sure that if I was to have a conversation with Chuck D, I would agree with him on certain issues about what more radio could do,” Rosenberg said. “But the way he stated it now, it’s not accurate. It’s not reflective of what the actual role of the station is.”

As the Twitter back and forth continued, the hip hop culture conversation spiraled into current debates of who “controls” the culture. Because the N word has become liberally used in mainstream rap, the “Fight the Power” emcee questioned whether the response would be the same if they were to use anti-semitic slurs.

“If there was a festival and it was filled with anti-Semitic slurs… or racial slurs at anyone but black people, what do you think would happen?”

Since humans are social animals (one step up from being herd animals) and no man/woman is an island.... who our peers are &/or what the popular culture dictates, to an inordinate degree, determines what we listen to.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
