      This is the type of stuff we need on G14… I wish I could click that box and select my pictures from my phone and hit post where it just pops up…. Once we get there I believe there will be no stopping this site… One day It just needs to be programed into the site or maybe finding someone who can program like that…. some young kid from college and have them do a updated program…..

      This is why I respect you! ”if you ain’t calling a girl a bitch or a hoe or cursing” I barely listen to rap because I am tired of that. It’s either other genres or older music. I’ll support this album.

      I remember when David Banner tried to bring back music that counts…. He ended up going right back to the method that the streets was asking for just to sale again…. And then when they asked him why he was feeding into the negativity with negative music… He told them… He said because when I tried to give yall the positive music and you didn’t support it and at the end of the day I have to eat… That was a while ago when he wrote cadillac on 22s…. So there is no force feeding this wave of new music…. you still have to find a way to place what your doing with what your producing what your writing with what is being accepted… There is a way to go under the radar where you don’t have to add the bitches the hoes, but you may need to make the beats that they listen for… either way some change can come at a high price…. at the end of the day this is a music business and in ever business you must see what’s being purchased in the market what’s selling and supply that demand, even if you have to make an off brand or replica of what worked…. but it takes money to run a business, you cant make a change on depleted funds, and you cant deplete funds trying to make a change, because then you cant help not even yourself. it takes money to make money to enforce change not in all cases but in majority of cases… Now if that dollar right you can force that positive sound everywhere… But I wish you much success in this vision and I do hope it does everything you see it to do.

      This was one of the interviews where he talked about it… Crazy how many people say yes we need positive music but when it’s time to buy where is they money at? Verses the people who are honest and be like I want my music bumping and crazy because they are out there supporting hard….. This problem is not new and it is still thriving.. you have to carter to the crack babies generation….

      JIM COOPER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS/APRIL 2006 FILE
      NEW YORK – Maybe it was the umpteenth coke-dealing anthem or soft-porn music video. Perhaps it was the preening antics that some call reminiscent of Stepin Fetchit.
      The turning point is hard to pinpoint. But after 30 years of growing popularity, rap music is now struggling with an alarming sales decline and growing criticism from within about the culture’s negative effect on society.
      Rap insider Chuck Creekmur, who runs the leading Web site Allhiphop.com, says he got a message from a friend recently ”asking me to hook her up with some Red Hot Chili Peppers because she said she’s through with rap. A lot of people are sick of rap .Ê.Ê. the negativity is just over the top now.”
      The rapper Nas, considered one of the greats, challenged the condition of the art form when he titled his latest album ”Hip-Hop is Dead.” It’s at least ailing, according to recent statistics: Though music sales are down overall, rap sales slid a whopping 21 percent from 2005 to 2006, and for the first time in 12 years no rap album was among the top 10 sellers of the year. A recent study by the Black Youth Project showed a majority of youth think rap has too many violent images. In a poll of black Americans by The Associated Press and AOL-Black Voices last year, 50 percent of respondents said hip-hop was a negative force in American society.
      Hip-hop also seems to be increasingly blamed for a variety of social ills. Studies have attempted to link it to everything from teen drug use to increased sexual activity among young girls.
      While rap has been in essence pop music for years, and most rap consumers are white, some worry that the black community is suffering from hip-hop – from the way America perceives blacks to the attitudes and images being adopted by black youth.
      But the rapper David Banner derides the growing criticism as blacks joining America’s attack on young black men who are only reflecting the crushing problems within their communities. Besides, he says, that’s the kind of music America wants to hear.
      ”Look at the music that gets us popular – ’Like a Pimp,’Ê” says Banner, naming his hit.
      Criticism of hip-hop is certainly nothing new – it’s as much a part of the culture as the beats and rhymes. Among the early accusations were that rap wasn’t true music, its lyrics were too raw, its street message too polarizing. But they rarely came from the youthful audience itself.
      ”As people within the hip-hop generation get older, I think the criticism is increasing,” says author Bakari Kitwana, who is currently part of a lecture tour titled ”Does Hip-Hop Hate Women?”
      One rap fan, Bryan Hunt, made the searing documentary ”Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes,” which debuted on PBS this month. Hunt addresses the biggest criticisms of rap, from its treatment of women to the glorification of the gangsta lifestyle that has become the default posture for many of today’s most popular rappers.
      ”I love hip-hop,” Hunt, 36, says in the documentary. ”I sometimes feel bad for criticizing hip-hop, but I want to get us men to take a look at ourselves.”
      And then there’s the criminal aspect that has long been a part of rap. In the ’70s, groups may have rapped about drug dealing and street violence, but rap stars weren’t the embodiment of criminals themselves. Today, the most popular and successful rappers boast about who has murdered more foes and rhyme about dealing drugs as breezily as other artists sing about love.
      Creekmur says music labels have overfed the public on gangsta rap, obscuring artists who represent more positive and varied aspects of black life, like Talib Kweli, Common and Lupe Fiasco.
      ”It boils down to a complete lack of balance, and whenever there’s a complete lack of balance people are going to reject it, whether it’s positive or negative,” Creekmur says.
      Yet Banner says there’s a reason why acts like KRS-One and Public Enemy don’t sell anymore. He recalled that even his own fans rebuffed positive songs he made – like ”Cadillac on 22s,” about staying away from street life – in favor of songs like ”Like a Pimp.”
      ”The American public had an opportunity to pick what they wanted from David Banner,” he says. ”I wish America would just be honest. America is sick. .. America loves violence and sex.”
