Watching the Prince's (Charles, that is) rock concert tonight, I thought about how important music is in lifting your soul.

And I realized again how damaging negative rappers are.

If you listen to Status Quo "Rocking All Over the World" there is an uplifiting.

And if you listen to Eric Clapton, the greatest guitarist ever, some of his music is so uplifting.

Once upon a time, a long time ago in the early days of hip-hop in Britain (early 90's) there was a massive range of hip-hop styles....love ....played a big part in this music...and the music made people feel GOOD. (e.g. Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy). Then, one day, a middle aged, not quite 'has been' DJ noticed that no other national radio disc jockeys had picked up the hip hop mantle and thought it would be ‘spiffing wot’ to have his own hip-hop radio show (it might save his career).

Timmy Westwood being middle aged, and having himself attended boarding school, had to think really really hard about the music and bands the 'uncoof yoof' he was aiming at would want to listen to....how could he 'connect'? Gangsta Rap - oooooh....that's shocking - very naughty....young people will love it. He had the only national hip-hop show and he promoted gangsta rap to the exclusion of all else.

Oh yeah - tie that up with the fact that ever since invading Afghanistan and Iraq the UK radio playlists have been heavily censored. We’ll have none of that love and peace nonsense from the 60's and certainly no contemporary equivalent. 'We don't want popular music to make a social comment. 'Sing about love, sing about lack of love, and sing about crazy, sing about anything apart from the reality of the times.'

do you think that the love / hippy boom in the 60's was crushed by TPTB because as a whole we nearly got IT? (Spirituality etc..)

What does the average guy say?
Stupid hippies / tree huggers etc..

Stupid just because they care?

Look up Devlin, song title Community Outcast - UK hiphop at its finest and he talks about how things are now in that song. (may need to be from UK to understand the slang etc..)
Also see song title Our Father, seems to give a view i agree with in regards to how GOD views us
