  2. I need more cow bell.
    LOL

    Who is the mark standing behind KRS with the little poster of graffiti? Like, that’s your job?…
    “OK, dude, just stand behind KRS and hold up the poster, nevermind it’s tiny and you look like a dork, just do it, and keep it real.”
    LOL

    Anyways.. the whole thing seems staged,…absolutely fake.

    I need more cowbell… (that’s what came to mind watching this, go figure)

  3. did he say they’ve been trying to create a hiphop museum for 20 years? sounds like in that amount of time & all the people even coming to the pioneers, something could have been worked out by now.

  4. krs one makes good points,but also hes missing one thing
    the reality of the culture of hip hop is not bieng taught,the average 13 yo kid from anytown USA just knows what he hears and burns on a cd,we needs to happen is to create a myspace,website to start the initial teachings of the real hip hop pioneers

  5. Right…How can you build a Hip Hop Museum and not consult the pioneers?! Total disrespect and exploitation. I don’t think its been staged either I think it’s exactly what should have been said.

  6. What was the point of this outburst? Do the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or NBA HOF provide insurance and lawyers to their inductees? I thought a museum was about giving respect and acknowledgment to one’s contributions.

    If KRS represents the mentality of “the founders,” it’s no surprise no museum of hip-hop has met their standards.

  7. Anthony many places do provide such things, honorariums, on down.. More importantly they sit down and work with the people showcased. I know we did when we put our thing together.. So Yes.. fam.. KRS is on point…

  8. WHY? HIP-HOP IS RACIST. ITS A TERM ONCE CREATED BY EUROPEANS FOR NURSERY RHYMES THAT JEWS USED TO SELL RECORDS TO WHITES AND GLOBALLY. IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT HIP-HOP HAS DONE TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY OVER ALMOST PAST 25 YEARS, WHY WOULD YOU EVEN WANT A MUSEUM TO HONOR THE IGNORANCE, DENIGRATION, AND FURTHER DESTRUCTION OF OUR YONUG BLACK MALES.. BLACK PEOPLE CREATED “RAP MUSIC’ IN 1979, JEWS GAVE YOU ALL HIP-HOP WITH LL COOL JAY IN ABOUT 1984 AND THEIR BOOKS AND VIDEOS. HIP-HOP IS A CULTURE OF FINDING BLACK PEOPLES WORST IGNORANCE AND GLORIFYING IT TO SELL TO WHITE PEOPLE AND GLOBALLY. THAT IS WHAT “MINSTREL’ WAS ALL ABOUT. KRS ONE, STOP SELLING OUT FOR INCLUSION AGAIN. THE MUSIC ISD CALLED RAP MUSIC, JUST LIKE AFRICA IS CALLED “KEMET”. YOU LET THEM CHANGE THE NAME AND GIVE IT THEIR IDENTITY AND ITS NOT OURS. “HIP-HOP IS NOT BLACK MUSIC”. ITS BLACK FACES SINGING AND DOING NURSERY RHYMES FOR THE JEWISH RECORDF COMPANIES CALLING IT ‘HIP-HOP”. WHICH IS “hELPING IGNORANT PEOPLE – HURT OUR PEOPLE”. KRS-ONE REINTRODUCED THE IGNORANT TERN “HIP-HOP” YEAR AGO, HE’S JUST AS IGNORANT AND GUILTY. JEWS GOING TO DO WHAT THEY WANT TO DO WITH “THEIR” MUSIC. HIP-HOP IS NOT BLACK PEOPLE MUSIC. ITS MINSTREAL. KRS-ONE IS A JOKE AND SO IS BAM AND THE REST OF THEM SELL-OUT S WHO NEVER STOOD UP AND WAS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR RECOGNITION AND NOT “THE TRUTH”. THEY SOLD THEIR SOULS IN THE “SOURCE MAGAZINE” BACK IN 1994 AFTER THE BOOK “THE ORIGIN OF RAP MUSIC” WAS RELEASED. YEAH, JOCKO STARTED “RAP MUSIC” ON THE RADIO BACK IN ’50’S, NOT THE “LAST POETS”. THE TRUTH WILL COME TO THE SURFACE!!! HIP-HOP – HELPING IGNORANT PEOPLE – HURT OUR PEOPLE. BLACK PEOPLE CREATED RAP MUSIC, EUROPEANS CREATED THE TERM HIP-HOP FOR NURSERY RHYMES AND JEWS USED THE TERM TO SECRETLY SELL RAP DISGUISED UNDER THE EUROPEAN TERM “HIP-HOP”. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE 1987. TIME TO WAKE UP, PEOPLE. ENOUGH DESTRCTION HAS BEEN BROUGHT UPON THE BLACK RACE.

  9. If you confuse hip hop with mainstream radio, than I’m not sure what to tell you. You can call oopa loopa, if the history is referring to you, than you have a right to speak up on it;’s behalf.
    Regardless of what you say. You would not allow someone to write your mother’s bio based on hearsay from your neighbors. You would want a voice. If somebody did so, even consulting you, and made a fortune, and your momma stayed broke, you would have the right to be pissed. Not saying that you couldn’t do the same for yourself, but I could not be puzzled about why you were upset.

  10. this commercialized stuff is what we laughed at back in 89 with the i’m gonna get you sucka movie, commercial hip hop has become that ghetto olympics scene from that movie.

  11. SINCE 1987, FROM KRS-1 ON, WHAT HAS HIP-HOP (HELPING IGNORANT PEOPLE – HURT OUR PEOPLE) POSITIVELY DONE FOR THE AFRICAN AMERICAN YOUNG BLACK MALE AND THEIR RACE? OTHER THAN MAKE A FEW IGNORANT BROTHERS RICH AND THEN GO TO JAIL AND A LOT OF JEWISH RECORD COMPANIES, TELEVSION AND RADIO STATIONS OWNERS EVEN RICHER. WHAT HAS HIP-HOP DONE TO HELP THE BLACK RACE? OTHER THAN ALLOW FELLOWS TO DO MINSTREL ON RECORD AND VIDEO TO SELL MUSIC TO WHITE KIDS AND OVER SEAS. WHAT HAS HIP-HOP DONE TO HELP THE BLACK RACE? IF YOU ASK DAVEY D, MICHEAL ERIC DYSON, CORNELL WEST, KRS-1, ECT. THEY’LL GIVE YOU THE SAME ANSWER THEY’VE BEEN GIVING FOR ALMOST 25 YEARS. I AM ASKING “YOU” – WHAT HAS HIP-HOP DONE TO HELP THE BLACK COMMUNITY? THEY’VE TAUGHT OUR YOUNG BOYS HOW TO DRESS TO GO TO JAIL. THEY’VE TAUGHT US HOW TO BE CRIPS AND BLOODS. THEY’VE TAUGHT US ABOUT ANY AND EVERYTHING NEVGATIVE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITIES THROUGHT AMERICA. IF YOU ARE A BLACK MAN, NOT A FAGGOT, A BLACK MAN AND HAVE KIDS – ANSWER THIS QUESTION – WHAT HAS HIP-HOP DONE TO HELP THE BLACK RACE? FUCK A MUSEUM BUILT BY AND FOR JEWS!!! WHAT HAVE THEY BEEN DOING TO OUR COMMUNITIES WITH THIS MINSTREL IGNORANCE?

  12. WHy do we as black people need a national museum of hip-hop? What came out the urban black & latino communities in the early 1970’s in the Bronx was called rap music.It makes me wonder when rap music was given a bogus name like hip-hop.Neva called it that.It seems like forces outside of rap music who never had anything much to do with the artform have a alternative agenda.

  13. Fam there was never ever a time in the 70s emceeing was called rap.. Rap had a completely different meaning..it had to do with hollaring at a female.. The music was never called rap.. If anything the word used to describe that early scene was called Jams.. and later Lovebug Starski used the word with Bambaataa popularizing it…

  14. The records that were purchased in 1979 were called “Rap reecords”. The tapes we heard in 1978 in Philly were the kids from New York “Rapping”. DAvey D, Jews gave you all that term “Hip-hop” to sell breakin’, djing, emceeing, and b-boying from that 20-20 special, Davey D, you are bogus. Black people created Rap Music, Puerto Ricans “breakin'”, people like you and the jews want to give the jews all the credit with this bogus “punk” talk. YOU NEED TO BE SHOT, BRO!

  15. White people used to have respect for Black people as evidenced when in 1989 they once gave Black people a Grammy for the first ” Best RAP Peformance” . When you negroes sold out and start talkingthat “hip-hop” stuff for the jews is when… It was always “RAp” when it was Black, it has always been “hip-hop” (helping ignorant people -hurt our people) as long as jews have been at the reigns, Yes, Russell was their ticket to control.

  16. Sine and Davey,

    Thanks for the clarification, I stand corrected. I did not know there was a financial benefit to inductees.

    In this case, I guess I’m not seeing where the people behind the proposed museum have ulterior motives. My (limited) experience with formally honoring people has not included providing those kinds of amenities. I agree if you are asking them to make an appearance, speak, and/or perform, you should take care of the travel, food and lodging, but the clip made it sound like they expected a whole lot more.

  17. Rob, the museum couldn’t deny namingthe emcee part of the museum “Rap”. Jews knew they couldn’t steal everything. KRS-One is on some real ignorant level. Forget accurate “Black History”, he’s on some jew shake down shit. If they cared anything about “Black History” they wouldn’t have even dealt with these people. Should have learned from the middle passage how they do when they finance stuff.

  18. whoa… i don’t know where those antisemitic “facts” are coming from. as one who was there from very early 80’s on (dc transplant to brooklyn, zulu king, girl is zulu queen from bronx), emcees “rap”… hip hop was the culture or movement that tried to unify youth of all backgrounds who were expressing themselves in varying ways (rap, deejaying, graf, etc.). the term was coined in late 70s, usually Melle Mel is given credit. if you’ve ever heard old school tapes emcees like Melle Mel barely rapped and were there to hype the deejay. an evolution of the form can def be seen, regardless of musicians who performed in a similiar manner before. anyway, as a muslim of european origin w/ jewish relatives, i can attest all were present in formative years of hip hop. you are racist latecomer who got their facts wrong. maybe if you shut your mouth and listen you might learn something, instead of faking like youre teaching somebody.

  19. Always maximum respect to Davey D and love to the Zulu Nation.

    Robert Jr. James McClendon, not only are you ignorant but singling out Dave for violence is just plain stupid and does nothing to make your silly, ill-informed rants worth reading, as if they were in the first place. A lot of you sound kike some snitch-ass, bitch-ass informants. WE SEE YOU.

    Live from the Temple of HipHop…

  20. Once again, we have a case where the NON-originator of something people of African descent created is trying to tell us and others what that creation is. BIG ups to KRS and a big middle finger to those arrogant asses who had the audacity to keep KEY PIONEERS out of this museum’s creation. We must create and CONTROL the dissemination of information about our culture and history!

Let us know what u think..
