4282, RE: How Hip Hop Holds Back Blacks

Music, in my opinion, is a reflection of the society in which its set. So, the question must be asked, as it has been since rap's inception, is it the music that holds us back or a society which put black folk in this situation in the first place? Don't get it wrong, we're definitely responsible for our own actions but... where is the line?

Anyway, hip hop was my great liberator.
