27292, I'm not being divisive at all...

I was just speaking of hip hop academics being recognized by the streets because hip hop has been mostly associated with the streets throughout every stage of its existence. I'm not saying anything to the exclusion of suburban or rural black folks, just saying how Dyson may be looked at from a certain population in which he is using an artform that grew out of the population. The struggle is real no matter where you are, the dynamics are just different in some cases.

"me as a black man will not
stand here and allow you to
talk dumb shit about white
women that simply is not true"
