I've said it before and won't stop saying it either:
The 1990's was the last hope for substantive music and culture.
There was a DEFINITE renaissance, unity and awareness that was decimated most likely by the 1992 LA riots, and further snuffed out by 9/11 and the crash of 2008.
EVERYTHING after that, culturally, took a nose dive. All the pride, unity, INCLUSIVENESS was torpedoed.
Want proof? Just watch "In Living Color"...THE WHOLE BOX SET. You will NEVER see that again and that's a horrible shame. Not the show, but what the show represented and encouraged.
It is my firm belief that the resurrection of racism and the birth of radical social 'warrorism' was a way to falsely explain and mask just how fk'd up the culture had become and it's only gotten much, much, MUCH worse.
I truly miss that era. For black Americans, that was when the music died. From there, it has been nothing but music and culture for sociopaths.
