He's also the self-appointed Sonic Youth expert.

It's funny that if you look at the richest black people in the world they all seem to own something. They're not doctors, hmmm. Most of them are not American either, hmmmm. Almost as if prosperity in black America isn't common.

You're arguing points I never made. I didn't say being a black rapper makes you an owner, I'm talking about record labels. There are tons of black owned record labels that generate revenue. Jay-Z is not just a rapper. He owns a very successful label. Kanye West, Drake, Tech N9ne, 50 Cent. Artists that own hip hop business. I didn't say hip hop on it's own is going to save black people from disparity but it's one of the only industries that is seemingly owned by black people which is important. No, I don't think a doctor has the same pull or sway or connections as Oprah ****ing Winfrey. Think about it, do you think Kim Kardashian could as easily build her business with out the connections her family had built? You think a doctor builds those same connections? **** out of here.

None of this even addresses the question of whether or not horrorcore labels, which are white owned and white employed, are taking hip hop industry away from black people or are they so far removed from hip hop culture that it makes no impact. Obviously you have very very little knowledge of hip hop at all so the question isn't for you.

Did I say that hip hop was invented when Afrika Bambaataa started playing college clubs? I don't remember saying that.

I'm confused as to what you're saying

what I'm saying is OG American punks attended the first hip hop clubs and this predates Joy Division and post punk

I got it wrong, though, it wasn't Afrika Bambaataa it was Grandmaster Flash.
