feel it coming in the air, hear the screams from everywhere...who gon' run this town tonight?

i was part of the first generation of hip hop. i clearly remember the first rap album i ever bought-nwa- and my parents reaction to it. it really was a revolution. over the years i fell out of love with rap. i don't really understand or listen to any of the rap artists today unless they have a huge crossover hit that is like fog... impossible to escape(lollipop by lil wayne..anyone?) jay z is one of the few artist that i love to listen to. he mixes his lyrics brilliantly with other styles and musical influences. i've been listening to his new cd, the blueprint 3, non stop since it came out. he's coming to our fair city on oct. 10 and my girlfriends and i got tickets! i'm so excited. i know it's going to be a phenomenal show but the big question is...what does one wear to hip hop concert these days?

  1. I am with you...i love hip hop (the real hip hop) and will defend it to the heart with anyone. But this new stuff is killing my ears and my husbands...our kids know that stuff wont last..only a fad...
