Special guest, SUPREME RA, co-host of Hip Hop School: Past & Present podcast drops by to discuss the age-old debate of why mainstream HIP-HOP lyrical content seems limited to SEX, DRUGS, & VIOLENCE. Did the GOVERNMENT or RECORD-LABELS conspire to destroy the redeeming messages in early HIP-HOP or did the demand of young consumers dictate the direction of the content?  Does HIP-HOP empower or degrade BLACK WOMEN? In recent times HIP HOP LYRICS have even come into question in CRIMINAL CASES, is this an attack on FREE SPEECH, or should HIP-HOP artists be held accountable for destructive lyrics? MENTAL DIALOGUE asking the questions America's afraid to ask. ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU THINK
