I think jayscoot had it right when he called these dudes tap-dancing cash cows. Popular hip-hop has become a big ol' stupid ministrel show.

Agreed, with slight modification.

True. There's still some good artists out there. The Roots, for example. They don't sell well though.

And Talib Kweli.  I'm obsessed.  :D 

The mighty Mos, J-live, there's a whole litany of artists out there offering a different perspective on black culture.   But, society at-large needs to have things dumbed down.  We don't value depth of knowledge...why do you think Bush is president?  Reminds me of the episode of dinosaurs where Earl became a TV exec and put on dumb shows.  The dinosaurs started regressing to a primitive state.  I think that kinda reflects what is going on in US society today, and the current state of hip-hop is once again just a foreshadowing.

ha ha I can't believe you brought up Dinosaurs...funny ass show though :)

Adding to the "international" flavor of the word many of us so affectionately use to refer to each other....
