Father Hood in this hip hop Generation
Even Rappers that started their careers in the early eighties are now fathers or grandfathers
I grew up in the Bronx from the moment Rap Music was introduced.
Many of us followed Curtis Blow more so than the Sugar Hill gang. Then LL Cool J came out.
Grand Master Flash, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, were forerunners. After that it got political and went in various directions.
The 80's, 90's with Gangster Rap, 2000's with R&B and Hip Hop mix, and today I don't really know.
In 1988, I started to write Positive Rap and Gospel Rap Lyrics because it was cleaner than anything out there and I believe the Lord wanted me to do it.
