The CIA does not nor has it ever possessed enough in the way of rhythm to have invented rap.

It is true that rap music does seem to glorify all the stereotypes that black people have had to endure. The drugs and alcohol, violence, sexual irresponsibility, the rejection of education. While I seriously doubt it was "invented" by the CIA, I do think it's detrimental to the black community as it only reinforces those traits in their minds and in the minds of others.

Black people have been held back and put down for centuries by other races, but hip-hop culture is one example of black people holding themselves back.

I may get attacked for that statement, but it's a sad truth.

im not sure if the creator of this thread should have his own show (a comedy, no doubt), or should be kicked off the internet for incredible ignorance.

a lot of people might be familiar with "slumdog millionaire". a news show did a recent story on the slums where that movie's story takes place. those people are POOR, yet their slums are not ravaged by violence, misery, rape, and drugs. its not heaven, but they manage to be civil, to fend for themselves, and to run their makeshift family businesses.

that says a lot about the culture of india. and that says much about many african-american communities in the US. and this has nothing to do with Rap music...which was, of course, created by the CIA.

please-- my side hurts from laughing. make it stop!

Sorry, but Rapture wasn't the first hit rap single. The Sugarhill Gang beat her to it 4 years earlier.


Yes, you're right, but so am I. I said that Rapture was the first rap hit. It was the first to go no. 1 on the charts and, just like with Elvis, white singers popularized a black genre, opened the door to the big white heartland via top 40 radio. Very important distinction.

Blondie was a NY band. Debbie Harry and the band members were kicking around in the NYC club scene before they became big, and after too, and picked up on the rap movement. I remember, because I was just out of school, in NYC then, and going out a lot, and she'd pop up everywhere, like Madonna and Warhol and Keith Haring. They all knew each other. Haring picked up on graffiti, for example, and did pretty much with it what Blondie was doing with rap and reggae.

There's also the Chic "Good Times/Le Freak" side of rap too, from disco, of all things. So as soon as it popped up, it was already being co-opted or "sampled" by other "inauthentic" but perceptive musicians.

So, if you want to follow the paranoid logic of the OP, then it's Blondie and Chic who are the CIA disinfo agents he/she posits, because they were interlopers, sampling a genre that belonged to another world and bringing it mainstream.

But this is ludicrous. They were just doing what every artist does--taking what was new, in the air, and playing with it and making it their own. Or exploiting it, if you want to be cynical about it.


[edit on 24-2-2009 by gottago]



Rapper's Delight was a hit worldwide, and reached #1 in Canada. It was also VH1's #2 rap song of all time. Blondie only did Rapture after Rapper's Delight saw success.

Afrika Bambaataa would let out a zulu war cry if he saw what this post is insinuating.

If Biz Markie is CIA, then i am the leader of the Disinfo movement.

talk about name dropping. Eminem? fidycent? even my 80 year old grandma sadly knows who they are. she must also be a CIA operative...

Do some research before you go and talk about about a whole culture.

Madvillain, De La Soul, Aesop Rock, People under the Stairs, Pharcyde, KMD, J-Live, J-Dilla, Brand Nubian, Mos Def, Blackalicous, Clutchy Hopkins, Oh No, 1200 Techniques, Beat junkies, Arrested Development, Heiroglyphics, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Souls Of mischief, The Streets, Black Moon, Blackstar, Gangstarr, Quasimoto, KRS-1, Jurrassic 5, Deltron 3030....

I could go on for days. These are rappers who, Gasp, talk about important things in life. I can respect Patsey Cline and Hank Sr, but i bet youll never listen to any of the above mentioned people because you sound so close minded.

sucks for you.

Drug Cartels like... the CIA! They've done every thing they can to destroy the black community. Why do you think a black kid who does well is called an Oreo? Why is it when a black person does well in some thing other then sports or rap or drug dealing he's betrayed the life? Also, when white kids listen to this music do they then go out and shoot people? No. Because they haven't been brainwashed into believing that is how they should act. They aren't called Oreos if they go to school read a book, do well. They aren't told from a young age that if they don't shoot some one for stepping on their shoe that they aren't really white.



And this is where I tell you how wrong you are. When a black person is called an "oreo" or "uncle tom" it's usually said by another black person (lord knows whites are afraid to say anything these days due to anything they say being considered "racism"). Blacks are not betrayed for life if they do well for themselves by whites or any other race than their own. I know I'm leaving out a lot of other races but honestly lately whites and blacks have completely segregated themselves into two completely different cultures.

What's this mess about white kids not shooting up people. Look at school shootings. The difference here is instead of it being over petty drug and gang related crap they kill due to the crap they have to put up with because of bullies and the like. They make one big statement that's heard around the world (the Asians have recently caught on to this as well).

Now honestly look around and tell me why it's the "CIA's" fault for issues plaging the black community. Once again, the blame is placed elsewhere and because of that, things will never change.



If you think that racism has been erased, you are living under a rock. Ever hear of the Jena 6 ? The only way a Black person will be taken seriously by the hegemony is if they join a secret society or become a Republican or something. The irony is that nobody takes Black Republicans seriously except themselves.

White kids listen to gangsta rap and try to emulate the lifestyle as well.

Like I said, welfare laws, Marxist ideology, and contamination of the food and water. Why can you only find Planned Parenthood in Black areas? Not to mention that Blacks spend their money on the slave crops that their forefathers broke their backs harvesting.

We now lieve in a better more open society.
Proof ? You now have a black president who is admirable too.
Now no matter how much WE the people have improved i cannot say the same about politics and the people above our heads. Whoever people are in control. All the care about is milking us while having put the reallity they want into our minds.
Its not a matter whether they milk a black or a white cow...
They all produce the same milk.

Now i may live in Greece and be a bit different culturally but the thread tittle sounds rubbish. -No offence but:

CIA Invented Rap Too Destroy The Black Community! ???????


Come on! Get on your feet. Life is not easy and nothing comes without great effort.
I am here with you in the effort side of things.
You know something else?
The system sucks too! But it is what it is.
If some of us do not stand tall enough it will just be like that.
So move your efforts to where it counts.



In Greece there is probably more tolerance, mainly because Greece has always welcomed other cultures. In America, things are different.

Actually, the president is only half Black. The white half is related to George Bush and Dick Cheney. Plus, he only has a 70% approval rating, and is being blamed for wasting more money on bailouts.

I had to chuckle when I read the thread title.

Did MI6 invent Ska and proper Heavy Rock to destroy the white community?

Maybe the CIA also invented skiffle and rockabilly? Or punk and goth?

Fact is, supporters of different styles of music have been taking pot shots at each other for years. The genre doesn't matter. its purely a throwback to tribal living, where groups of people who identify with form rivalries with other groups of people.

Its nothing new at all, and if you don't believe me, watch Quadrophenia, or talk to some old school rockers. Violence was as much a part of those scenes as it is the rap scene.



Actually the MI6 was involved in using punk rock to spread Marxist ideology across the UK

Its not racist! They've been brainwashed by the government for years now! You can't do well in school that makes you like whitey. You can't go too college for some thing other then sports that makes you an Oreo. You have to do drugs, be in a gang, act like an animal or you're betraying your race. That is what they have been taught. It is all part of the CIAs plan to keep them down! Much like with the drug smuggling.


Your assertion is not only racist against whites, but also against blacks.
It also ignores the drug/gang/criminal culture that exist in white/latin/asian communities as well as black communities. It also ignores the fact that the CIA isn't a causcasion organization. Lastly it takes all responsibility away from the people actually living their lives that way, because hey, they can't help it- they've been brainwashed by the CIA.

The OP is very, very far off.

the thing is most people who do not know ANYTHING about rap always seem to talk about silly things like baggy jeans, bi#ches and bling. It seems you are all stuck in a late 80's early 90's impression on what rap is about.

Rap on the radio is just as poor as most rock or pop on the radio, lowest common denominator drivel for 8-16 year olds. Sadly, this is what most people think of when they talk aout rap.

Real rap music fans are much more varied than that. Many rap artists are WORDSMITHS and modern POETS who are interested in wordplay and rhyme styles.

While rap music as an artform was not created by the CIA, the early socially conscious rhymes of raps "golden era" have been pushed aside by those in the RECORDING INDUSTRY in exchange for the glorified gangsterism and mindless consumerism of popular rap. And when one looks at the ownership of said RECORD COMPANIES you could argue that the direction they promoted and pushed is actually working against not the "black" community but rather, the ENTIRE HIP HOP COMMUNITY. The entire youth culture has been pushed into mindless consumerism and selfishness by ALL MAJOR MEDIA in the last 20 or so years. And yes, music is a powerful tool used by THE POWERS THAT BE to shape pop consciousness. So in that light, I can see perhaps what the OP was trying to get at, even if he didn't know it.

Even hip hop afficianado's lament the state of much of hip hop today.

That being said, like most artforms, the most popular is not the best. Many GREAT hip hop artists discuss these very topics in their songs.

In the end Hip Hop/Rap is a music which probably discusses a wider range of topics than ANY OTHER GENRE.

Real hip hop will never die. Those who have been bitten by its infectious potential know this. Those who haven't never will.

I must agree with one of the first responses.........most racist crap I have read on this site. How many of you here are familiar with the rap culture or the history of gansta rap. I really don't think Tupac, Dr. Dre, and Snoop were planted by the CIA.
I can just imagine a headline like this, "NWA has links to CIA". LOLOLOL

My kids listen to this stuff and I have heard tons of interviews with rappers where they complain that the promoters and record companies won't even take seriously any music that is not full of that garbage. Unless of course the rapper is already a huge star and will make a ton of money on name recognition.

I guess this is a conspiracy site so I can see somewhat the reason for the OP,but really this is quite ridiculous.



They tried to get gangsta rap shut down, but then they saw that it was good for money, and so the gangsta rappers sold themselves out. Ice Cube and Ice-T have since played the stereotypical black law-enforcement role.

Tupac Shakur had a very rough life in NY, and so he moved to the west coast.

Yes, the record companies refuse to promote any rapper who doesn't toe the line. There are plenty of good rappers who have never gotten the same airplay as artists like Flo Rida and Xzibit, who both produce absolute garbage. Flo Rida sounds like a damn 45-year-old butch stuck in a young man's body

I think everyone here would enjoy listening to ImmortalTechnique, hes an underground rapper from New York City, he has no corperate sponsors or record deals because he doesn't believe in that stuff, and he raps about corrupt polotics and conpiracy theories in general. Check him out here

^^^really good song.

Rapping was invented in Scotland long, long ago (even blacks know this, the rapper Snoop Dogg can be seen wearing a scottish kilt below) so if you ask me rap wasn't invented to destroy the black community, it was invented to destroy the white community in scotland!






That was a racist comment. You probably haven't heard about Blacks raping and killing one another.

And no, iambic pentameter doesn't count as rapping.

Actually, you're insistence that he is "half-black" betrays your intolerance. He's black. The black community decides who is black, not you.

Secondly, ONLY a 70% approval rating? How old are you? Don't you know that's a terrific rating?! And who is blaming him for "wasting more money on bailouts"? The Congressmen who approved the bailouts? I don't get it...

If you're going to talk politics, please, please make some sense...

who calls them uncle toms? other black people.

is there a cia plant in every black classroom and on every street corner?
who sells white kids drugs?
did the cia invent teeny bop pop rubbish to rot white kids minds?
white kids are called nerds and beaten up for studying, who organised that?

take some freakin' responsibility for the problems in your own circle, encourage others to do the same and work to change the cancer in your culture instead of looking for spooks to blame.

and as for MLK, well the CIA probably sht JFK aswell, so what? the CIA don't like any anti establishment group, it's not that he was black, it was that he called for equality. get over yourself.



White people jokingly call out "oreos" as well, just like how they use the word "'n-word'." Even among white people there is such a thing as not being white enough.

You don't have to plant a CIA agent in every classroom if you delegate from the top down, and get people to shame one another into submission.

Actually, yes, many people say that teeny bop music is part of a conspiracy.

You can't organize people who are brainwashed through sugar, coc aine and Marxist bulls'hit.

And, no. JFK was also against secret societies, and tried to replace Masonic influence in the US with Roman Catholic influence.

The same is true for any pop musician. They toe the line, or they don't get record deals/promotion.

This is quite the amusing thread. I never would have suspected that Flavor Flav was an agent for the CIA. Those clocks around his neck actually contained sophisticated recording devices back in the day. Some of those clocks actually broadcast low frequency subliminal messages to the masses.

Come on. Rap in all of its forms evolved out of Hip Hop which began in the early to mid 70's in New York City. I grew up watching the evolution on MTV. When I was a kid it was Grandmaster Flash, Kool Moe Dee and Run DMC. Remember break dancing and the movies Beat Street and Breakin. Unfortunately, that innocent music evolved into the current mix of crap they call Gansta Rap. IMHO these gansta rappers have no talent and are certainly not musicians.

All music evolves. Some forms die off along with the bands like Winger, thank God or simply morph into something else. Early Rap/Hip Hop was great at sampling and mixing of other songs into modern tunes.

If the CIA is behind Rap then they must be behind Punk and Death Metal too. Sounds rather strange doesn't it?

No. The "clock" and "do you know what time it is" represent Saturn

Fine, you watched Wildstyle and Beat Street, and listened to the Ultramagnetic MC's. Where do they get the money? It doesn't just fall out of acid rain clouds.

Actually, yeah, and the Beatles as well.
