As The Truth Be Told


An undiscovered culture rooted in the complex souls of the misunderstood, Such as Tupac, he lived what he spoke of, a thug life. Then there's RUN DMC, trio like no other the latch of a new era of hip-hop combining the original with the then present, giving birth to something bigger than us all. A revolutionary travel through development and success has allowed them to be in a league of their own, "The Untouchables". Hip-Hop has made its way to the big screen, this being evident in Krushgroove, Beat Street, Wild Style, Electric Bugaloe and Brown Sugar. A love shared by those who help keep it a float. Often seen as vindictive and an unforgivable evil, has managed to rebuild a community, which at one time was thought to be lost. We have found this new neighborhood in Hip-Hop. Between the beats and lyrics lies a message only the enlightened can understand. Hip-Hop is equivalent to home, when your near it, you feel the was of love and dedication it took to permit such a structure to stand on its own. A culture no longer locked by the content, but welcomed by the concept and as the truth be told Hip-Hop runs through my soul.
