Hip Hop Takes On The Riots

March 17, 2012 § 1 Comment

If you haven’t yet heard Plan B’s new release ‘Ill Manors’ – check it out. Powerful stuff.

Then listen to this interview with 1Xtra – the guy knows what he’s talking about and has a plan.

“If you don’t understand it, especially after hearing me speak about it now…, then maybe you’re not as educated as you think. Or maybe you’re educated academically, but you need to go out there and get some life experience under your belt. ‘Cause I’ll tell you one thing, if these kids on the street and on the estates are so stupid, how come they can understand hip hop and the rest of the world can’t?”

§ One Response to Hip Hop Takes On The Riots

  • London
    I wander thro’ each charter’d street,
    Near where the charter’d Thames does flow,
    And mark in every face I meet
    Marks of weakness, marks of woe.

    In every cry of every Man,
    In every Infant’s cry of fear,
    In every voice, in every ban,
    The mind-forg’d manacles I hear.

    How the Chimney-sweeper’s cry
    Every black’ning Church appalls;
    And the hapless Soldier’s sigh
    Runs in blood down Palace walls.

    But most thro’ midnight streets I hear
    How the youthful Harlot’s curse
    Blasts the new born Infant’s tear,
    And blights with plagues the Marriage hearse.
