Run-D.M.C. rapper calls today's hip-hop culture 'disrespectful and immature'
Aug. 5, 2013, 3:10 PM EST
Run-D.M.C. star Darryl McDaniels has launched a scathing attack on modern hip-hop music, accusing today's rappers of popularizing gun and drug culture.
The hip-hop pioneer says too many current chart stars focus on negative themes in their music, without making any tracks with a positive message, and justify it by comparing their work to Hollywood movies.

He tells Britain's Metro newspaper, "A rapper will use this excuse -- 'Man they don't go after Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis when they make their violent movies' and I go 'If you're going to use that excuse get off the mic, don't produce. I'll personally kick your a-- out of hip-hop 'cause if you're using that excuse, go be an actor.'"
McDaniels told the paper that his group made some negative records during their heyday, but they also put out positive releases too.
"If you make a record about a gun, on that very same record or album there's gotta be a record about not using a gun. If you're making a record on the b--ch or the h--s (sic), there's got to be a record about your aunt who worked all of the days of her life to send all her children to college," he said. "It seems like stupid America celebrates a person that says 'Yeah I'm a drug dealer, I'm bringing the drugs into the hood.' The reason why hip-hop exists is because it started out with good intentions; once all the good intentions left, the music became polluted, it became disrespectful, it became immature."
McDaniels also criticizes the quality of many modern records, adding, "98 percent of hip-hop music that's out now I say is just bad demos. ... If you want to see real hip-hop you gotta go to concerts and festivals because hip-hop on (the) radio sucks."

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
