Untitled (I need a title)

"I tell em, You know what's gonna happen with Hip-Hop?
Whatever's happening with us
If we smoked out, Hip-Hop is gonna be smoked out
If we doin alright, Hip-Hop is gonna be doin alright
People talk about Hip-Hop like it's some giant livin in the hillside
comin down to visit the townspeople
We +are+ Hip-Hop
Me, you, everybody, we are Hip-Hop
So Hip-Hop is goin where we goin
So the next time you ask yourself where Hip-Hop is goin
ask yourself.. where am I goin? How am I doin?
Til you get a clear idea
So.. if Hip-Hop is about the people
and the.. Hip-Hop won't get better until the people get better
then how do people get better? (Hmmmm...)
Well, from my understanding people get better
when they start to understand that, they are valuable
And they not valuable because they got a whole lot of money
or cause somebody, think they sexy
but they valuable caause they been created by God
And God, makes you valuable"
-"Fear Not of Man" Mos Def

Who Killed Christ? Answer: His own people. Who's killing Hip Hop? Answer: Us! But like Christ, Hip Hop never died to those who believed in its message. The end result of the piece didn't quite come out the way I would've liked so I'll be revisiting the subject till I can get an outcome that I like. Let me know what you think. Give me a title. And of course, its for sale. Just holla at me with an offer.

and oh: the silver lining in the back spells out "Who Did It?"


  1. man that was some deep stuff...gave me good kind!!! Nice azz piece!!!

  2. i think you offered up some nice options yourself: "who killed hip hop?"--"who did it?"
    and what came to my mind was "please let me testify" or "when hip hop was crucified"

    just some thoughts on some awesome work-congrats man, always inspiring
