Check out the trailer for Sony Pictures’ new movie, “Battle of The Year” starring Laz Alonso, Chris Brown and more. Yes it’s another one of those battle dance movies and it’s supposed to hit theaters sometime in 2013..
Sony pictures got nothing else to do with their money but cast his sorry ass? Huh, I guess not.
my thoughts exactly! just a waste of money.
$1000 Weed Purchase Sends Rick Ross on Munchie Binge That SHUTS Down Unsuspecting Grocery Store in Jamaica http://goo.gl/zM3lO …funniest sht i read all day
It’s not even about them casting him…. Its the fact that they are still making the same sorry ass movie OVER and OVER again…. this aint right.
@Tamia…YES, I was hoping someone would say that! This is tooooo corny. The way it was playing out, you would think this was about training for the Olympics, war, a boxing match, etc. It was a bit too serious for dance. Also, this story line is not fresh at all!
Omg that is my bebe from “Lost”! Yeah, I’m sick of these dance films- I don’t understand why these type of movies are always predominately yt & latinos, when the style of dance is hip-hop, that was created by blacks? Smh. I love CB tho!
That’s so true, and those dancers, in my opinion, do not execute those dance moves with swag at all. Chris Brown has hit an ultimate low.
Latinos are a part of the Hip Hop movement..
That’s right. Hispanic cats have been break-dancing since the 1970′s.
True, lations were always apart of Breaking. But dance in general…yall know what we’re talking about. How can they keep producing movies completely surround Black culture, but completely exclude Black culture. It’s a complete insult & I’ll NEVER spend any money on that.
And yes Lotus – “no swag” whatsoever. But that’s what happens you immulate and don’t appreciate.
If they made another movie with only black people dancing, then people would complain about that… Crying how Hollywood is depicting us as dancing coons..
Lol exactly. Any film that is a replica of black culture, they always find a way to include, or center a story around an interracial couple or non black character. It’s a hollywood formula. I’ve come to expect it. *sigh*
Not that we own hip hop but it is one of our many specialties. I am sure the mostly white cast is to make it more marketable (mainstream) and CB is thrown in there for us. I can’t remember the name of the one that just came out with the two white leads but it was hyped as the best dance movie…they act like it was “Breakin” (I am aging myself here…lol). I wonder who choregraphed these movies…hmmmm….I wonder….
You guys sound stupid and uneducated as hell. HIP HOP is not a BLACK THING nor can MUSIC have a RACE, it is universal. Y’all some basic hoes for real. I’m more shocked that y’all are even bringing up the debate about Latinos… lol
No you idiot, music is CULTURAL. Music goes back to communication within a tribe, ceremonies for royalty, or worship of a god/God. It can be listened to and enjoyed by anyone, but it cannot be created by anyone/everyone. I don’t even think that you know what half the words you used even mean, and you’re clearly confused.
@Mia it’s about culture not skin tone, but I remind myself that not everyone online is who they pose to be, can’t believe there are really black people out there (or any race that doesn’t get why there is a problem when their race isn’t represented in something specific to them) that don’t get it. Don’t have to agree but to not get it is not even real, unless you desire to be the race that’s always shown as better.
@ MIA WTF are you talking about? So let me guess white people created hip hop right? I can’t!
Looks kind of wack to be honest and I LOVE dance..but they will never top Stomp The Yard 1 with Columbus Short. That movie was one of the best dance movies ever.
OAN Why does it seem that white people always want to take over everything we’ve mastered? Is it just me? IDK
Anyways, it just looks bland and I guess they thought by having Chris Brown and Laz in it amongst all these white people, that would get US to spend our money to see it. Eh! Wrong again. LOL
Yup. Pretty much. Yeah Stomp the Yard was good…
They just had to make it so chris brown went crazy over the blonde hair white girl lmao hollywood
@MS. ATL Chris Brown has already gone crazy for white girls. This is not new. I used to like him but then I realized everytime he got into an arguement with a black woman he calls her a black bitch. It’s funny how he’s getting all this attention since dancing in that damn pyramid at the BET awards. I guess he’s illuminated now so we will see more of him. Laz Alonzo is corny as all hell and another one with color issues.
Bunch of mind control globalization nonsense smh. Now the white boy is a master hip hop and break dancer lmao. This is how they start the “whitenization” process. First they imitate, then they attempt to emulate (meaning outdo the originators), and then down the line they attempt to invalidate the originators and take everything as their own, even changing history. That is why the “King” of Rock & Roll is Elvis lol.
I agree, I’m not spending my coins to watch this crap.
Sooo true! I was just reading an article the other day about how black men were really the cowboys white people often played in the western movies. They ripped us of everything… when does this madness stop?
First off, you’re confused as he!! lol. You’re not “black”. By your own admission, your father is a caucasian, and you’ve ranted many times about how happy you are about that….so you can go eat a raw steak and drink a lager beer, or whatever you dev!ls do. Yes, the black man was the cowboy. Blacks were used to herd the cattle to the west, and they were called “boy” which is how the name “cow-boy” came about. The black man was also the vikings, the pirates, the knights, the Spartans, the Celts, Saxons, etc….and before the black woman lost her d@mn mind, she was the queens, princess, duchesses, and countesses of medieval Europe believe it or not.
Judah, why don’t you be civil sometime? I may be mixed with white, but in America, I’m identified as black because I look black sweetie. You must of had a hard childhood or just an extremely ugly person who doesn’t know how to accept compliments.
I’m civil to the civilized. You cannot compliment me because a dev!l acts good to be evil later. I’m only telling you the truth about yourself, and I could care less how this society characterizes racial designations. Your “race” is your seedline. The seedline is carried by the male. Period. The fact that (according to you) you “look black”, but you ranted about how happy you are to “be white” shows what you actually are, as opposed to what you claim when you feel like claiming it.
Judah, while living in a American, you have no other choice but to be characterized by the color of your skin and maybe even the texture of your hair. So you and your little “seed-line” tale is so irrelevant. Wake up to the 21st Century!
School em Judah!
I love it…
@ JUDAH… I can’t wait to see what you have to say about the new Aug/Sep issue of “Complex” I’m just waiting for CL to post it!
Eminem even admitted on a song on that album the eminen show that he uses black people’s music to make himself rich. They’ve been using sellout nigg@s like Dr Dre and timbaland for years to produce music for Caucasian artists.
I just looked it up lol. That’s just more of the atheism agenda. The jewish entertainment executives utilize these artists to promote that in the black community. Notice that “Common” allowed himself to be used for that, which doesn’t surprise me, but in his public image he likes to depict himself as a “conscious/spiritual” dude. In reality we know that he’s not, and he sacrificed his cousin a little over a year ago.
There’s a lot going on with that dude Eminem. He’s definitely a monarch child. I believe that he was groomed to attain what he currently has attained and that Dre’s job was simply to sign him so that he would have legitimacy. The media took it from there.
@JUDAH. I had no Idea that eminem was MK-Ultra
The way you know that he’s a monarch child is because he promotes multiple personality disorder and disassociative identity disorder in his music. That is why the themes of his albums were dedicated to each identity. The man even had songs where he killed his mother or his woman at the time, and he was promoted for it. If you notice, they packaged him to the public with blonde hair, much like the look that Chris Brown sometimes favors, which is an allusion to Harpocrates, the boy god of silence and MISCHIEF. The entertainment industry loves to venerate that god. There was an old entertainment act called the “Marx Brothers” and one of the brothers was named “Harpo”, and he was depicted as the mischievous one with blonde hair, and he was a mute. Even cartoons like “Dennis the Menace” were in allusion to Harpocrates. To make a long story short, they play out rituals and promote paganism in plain site and package it as “entertainment”.
Is there any celeb who’s not Mk-ultra?
@Judah… Common gets the side eye. But as of late,his true colors are coming out. I don’t know if it’s because of his Hollywood status or what. He threw that koofi away and picked up a glass of Cristal. I stated he is “suppose” to be a conscious rapper,what does he have in common with rappers like Pusha and Lil Sean? I was called a hater! LOL
All these rappers work for the same agenda. When you have somebody like Nas (whom I love) appearing in a Nicki Minaj video than you know it’s all fake. Ill always have my faves but I don’t trust any of these puppets.
You right, if I was mk I wouldn’t have time to be here conversing with your broke ass lol but anways, Harpocrates, his iconic image shows his finger to his lips, Rihanna STAY doing that pose, can Horus children be girls to? hmmmmm
@Judah I fu&ks with you all day! You straight schooling right now!
I noticed a much slimmer Josh Peck.
“Things are getting blacker, but black is looking whiter,” –
Exactly lol. They want to mix up everything. The allegedly “top” rapper is caucasian. They’re trying to morph Bieber into an R&B singer, while Usher and Chris Brown use trance and house beats on all their dance songs, and Lil Wayne tries to skateboard and act like he is an “emo” whiteboy.
Don’t forget the “new” queen of soul…..Adele.
They just kicked Joss Stone to the curb..
But let a black person start singing/playing rock music (even though the first “rock star” was a black dude) or anything other than rap and r&b. Asians now break dance and rap, whites now break dance and rap, even Pakistanis now break dance and rap (DJ Khaled). Can we keep anything to ourselves? I would be stoned if I ever thought of doing “The River Dance” in public. Yet if a White boy was to go up and start rapping, he gets cheered (by black people mainly).
That’s true but many times black females are big supporters pf white “soul singers” like Adele and Amy Winehouse. The black woman lost her mind when Amy Winehouse dies, and this was a female who went on record stating that she does not like black people….so go figure. That therapy must be working well for you “Ay”. Your comments are starting to have a semblance of common sense now lol. Stay on your program lol.
So? Eminem had many black males supporting him, even after calling himself the black Elvis. If he died tomorrow World star Hip Hop would be filled with GOAT comments. Anways, we agree that neither black men or women control who gets “crowned”.
I only know one of Amy Winehouse songs.. and that’s the Rehab song. I just found out this year, Adele sung the song “Rollin in the Deep” I heard it,but I didn’t know who it was. I only know one of Nikki Minaji’s songs too!
No he didn’t. Cats were not feeling Eminem like that back in 1999 lol. Eminem had black entertainers who were told to back him at the start of his career in order to give him “hood cred” because they knew the type of undertaking they were initiating which is the transitioning of “rap” to a global phenomenon, and they needed a white face for that. “Adele” and “Amy Winehouse” didn’t need to appear in videos with Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey to be systematically accepted.
Judah, who do you think would stone you if you did the River dance in public? LOL Your own kind will. Because they can’t invision a black person doing it. But I’d pay $59.99 to see that! LOL
I have no idea, but I know I would pay 59 cents to see “CHEERS” do a riverdance because she’s obviously been practicing it, and she’s concerned that she won’t be accepted by her clique after she does it in public lol.
@Judah. How the…lol Your name was one that Riverdance comment. LOL Either I’m buggin or CL is. My mistake.
Yeah, I remember when Em first came out,cats were coming for him,but for some reason, it all died down. Now I know why.
At least round it off to .60 cents. Blacks are the original Celtics (right?). River dancing is in me blood.
Lmao at “Riverdancing is in me blood.”….yes, that and a couple of pints of Hennessey. Riverdancing does come from us. In the British Isles to this day, there is a dance called the “Morris Dance” that the current caucasian inhabitants do where they dress up in black-face to do the dance.
The point is, even today dudes respect him like they respect Jay…..deny this.
The conversation is not about now. I was referring to the greater lengths that had to be taken to graft Eminem into being considered a respected, mainstream hip-hop artist INITIALLY. Yes, now, these negroes are finished period. Now is not relevant. N!ggas listen to a dude named “Wacka Flocka Flame” with a straight face, so I don’t particularly care about what is considered “good” now by the majority of people.
And the fact that Adele and Amy didn’t have to appear in Mariah or Whitney videos adds to my original point, the black woman’s approval is irrelevant. You just had to take a dig at us like we let the cavefolk in lol these rappers were “told” to back Eminem, ill agree, but why can’t they any integrity? Why are they not held to any standard?
Oh well we know that the black woman’s opinion is irrelevant. I could’ve told you that lmao….and you know I love takin’ a little dig at ya’ll when I can lol. Keeps me young lol. Point being that they already knew that there would not need to be any tricks utilized in making a white woman “Queen of Soul”. Just give her the crown because the black woman is too busy watching “Sex In The City” to notice what the he!! is going on lol. Since when do mainstream entertainers have “integrity”?
“Since when do mainstream entertainers have “integrity”?
Yes of course. It’s just sad because Hip-Hop was created by US. These were black men before they were “celebs”. They just totally handed over their creation, no questions asked, and nobody ever held them responsible for it. It’s just like “whatever”, they’re paid. Why Justin Bieber can walk around talkin’ about “Swaggy”, mentored by Usher, written by the Dream, and co-signed by Ludacris. He’s the biggest star in the world right now, besides Adele. And they’re both doing “black” music.
I swear it’s refreshing to know that my sister’s and I are not the only ones that notice all this shit. We need more people to wake up from their programming. Blacks in the industry are the biggest sell outs that I have ever seen. No loyalty to each other or anyone else. Seriously and I’m being dead serious when I say this, I don’t think whites are human. I think they are repatilian shape shifters. If someone could prove that they are not then prove it. Until then that’s what I believe. They are the biggest theives in the history of man. We are the most emulated race in the world yet the most hated? They don’t hate us they love us and want to be us but they know they are nothing more then a cheap carbon copy of what a human is supposed to be. Stringy thin hair, white pastey skin that can’t tan. The only people with no melanin. Extremely flat asses man it’s hard for me to come to work sometimes because they are everywhere. What’s going to be the killer is when whites find out they are slaves too. I can’t wait. @Judah I wish you could come speak out here. I dont’ know where your from but I’m in New York and I work by the World Trade Center in the World Financial Center and the black chicks in here want to be white soooooo bad. I even saw one black chick try to wash her hair in the morning and comb it back like she’s a white woman and go to work with her flat shoes on and A-line skirt. As soon as the wind hit that steel wool she had on her head she was looking stupid because it turned into a hot ass tangled mess. Why the hell would you want to be someone that damn near kills themself to be you? I will never understand that shit.
Nah, sis, the white man is not a reptilian. They just have the traits of snakes lol. The so-called “caucasian” is known in the Bible as the “Edomites” a.k.a. the sons and daughters of Esau. The elite of their race know who they are. Hitler and his ilk were scholars, which is why they did what they did in their attempt to exterminate the so-called “Jews”. If you watch the so-called “History Channel”; they are quick to state that Hitler and his cabinet had “Jewish” ancestry, but that is a strawman because they’re defining being a “Jew” according to the Khazar lineage, not the Israelites of the Bible. Hitler understood that the caucasian man cannot be a “Jew”, because the real Jews and Israelites were negroes. The Nazis claimed to be “pro-Germany” but their marches were patterned after Ancient Greece and Rome, not the Germanic tribes, because the real germanic tribes were black people. The white man did not take over totally Europe until the 1700′s, and they went about changing the definition of words, destroying statues depicting the real black rulership of Europe, hiding or/and destroying records, re-doing (whitenizing) paintings and claiming that they were originals, and lying to the blacks in captivity about who they really were and where they came from. I’m also in NYC. I feel sorry for you if you have to work in that type of environment lol.
Looks like these movie directors are running out of ideas. The movies coming out now are all lacking originality.
The majority of ANYTHING coming out now,lacks originality. Because many seem to not take pride in what they do, it’s all about how much they make..
What’s up cheers
What’s up home skillet
Nothing much cheers just ready to fry your as.s if you come sideways. LOL
LOLL!! Well then I’ll try my best not come at you “sideways” then. Maybe forwards (I might even try backwards), but not sideways.
@ cheers are you from Canada
It depends on if you’re going to move to Canada for good, or if you’re gonna just love her and leave her like the last fella that she bought a plane ticket for lmao…..you better answer right bruh lol.
I’m just playin’ lol. I couldn’t help it. Ya’ll conversation was funny.
WOW I’m hurt
Turn that frown upside down lol.
@JUDAH. I’m willing to sign that “strawman contract” for Cheers any day now.
What strawman contract?
You’re funny bruh lol.
He’s talking about the so-called “marriage certificate” that males in this society allow females to bamboozle them into signing……he’s ready to go half on a baby with you lmao. I can see little “CheerRazer” on this website in 20 years typing away lol.
LOL oh okay. Well then he has to wait in line.
What do you mean – wait in line? He already has mommy. You know you are a hot ass mess. These dudes were running through you and your girlfriends like 35cent bags of potato chips.
SMH. When I meant he has to wait in line, I meant behind other potential “suitors”. I can see you’re going to be dumb (just like yo’ daddy). I better start saving up for some “Hook’d on Foniks” (Special Edition Volume One).
@cheers why are you being so harsh towards me, I thought that once the black man signed that dreadful marriage certificate that the black woman would shut the f.UCk up
Who told you that lie? You know it doesn’t work that way
Coach Carter meets You Got Served. Originality clearly isn’t the motto here.
No dance movies have been original in the last 4-5 years. Everything has been done before.
Im sorry but IM I THE ONLY ONE SICK AND TIRED OF THESE DANCE MOVIES????? IT SEEMS LIKE ONE COMES OUT EVERY MONTH!!!!!!!!! I LOVE CHRIS BROWN BUT I WANT TO SEE YOU DO SOMETHING ELSE IN MOVIES BESIDES DANCING!!!!!
ik that’s right
LOL what about “Think Like a Man?” I thought he was adorably cute in the movie…and no dancing!
He wasn’t danciing in “This Christmas”… lol He is an entertainer,singing and dancing is what he does…Acting is something on the side.
i can’t take Chris Brown seriously in a film. Esp when he’s speaking. See in the movie Takers he didn’t speak much and had a great chase scene. No more talking Chris Brown. you just ruin everything. But truth be told, wasn’t gonna spend any coins on this movie.
LOL from what I saw he did have a great running scene in the Takers. Guess they don’t call him Chris “Run It” Brown for nothing. That dude could run his butt off in a movie. Maybe that’s what he should be doing now. Less talking/dancing, more running.
He would make a great stuntman lol
Chris wasn’t the only one wack in Takers… TI is the worse! I don’t want to hear him speak at all..Takers was overall wack.
I’ve been over dance movies since they first butchered the first “Step Up” (which they are continuing to do every few years).
Does this REALLY need to be in 3D?
And to top it off, the three white dudes in the still video shot got Elvis hairdo’s WTH! If this ain’t some subliminal B.S.! lol
Oh and not to mention CB has to have bleach blonde hair to give him a softer black look. You see they ain’t got no chocolate brothers in the promo!
Exactly, and that is an excellent point.
Exactly!!!!!! Now it’s just blatant so if you dont see it then your straight up dumb. White people know good and well that they have two left feet when it comes to dancing. Just stick with jumping up and down and fist pumping. It suits you better.
I guess they’re doing hip-hop like they did Christ
Judah made an excellent point in regards to the blond hair and mischief amongst the men. Remember, when Sylvester Stalone and Wesley Snipes did “Demolition Man.” If I remember correctly, Wesley Snipes was a rebel and he also had BLONDE HAIR. He went by the name “Simon Phoenix,” which clearly plays into MK-Ultra and the sun symbolism. There was a scene where the old white handler started speaking to Wesley Snipes and it was so elusive and cryptic. Snipes was trying to break himself from it but he couldn’t. Stalone was seen as a hero but really he was just programmed to destroy other programmed individuals. Out of chaos they create order.
Don’t forget “Meteor Man”
I think this also applies to females too.. Gena Davis as Charlie Baltimore, in “The Long Kiss Goodnight”
Chris Brown is starting to look sick though. It’s obvious he is on cocaine. His face is seeping inward and his weight loss is very unnecessary. He’s losing control almost like Rihanna. It’s almost as if both of them were programmed to self destruct after their agendas have been set in motion.
Yes, I noticed this last week. He doesn’t look healthy.
He’s been looking crackish for months
isn’t that ‘twinning’…
CL still going strong
As long as Chris wears that blonde, he will always look like the villains from Meteor man.
Damn. I forgot about those villains with blond hair. Meteor Man? Dang you went way back!
New post please. Lol
Yessssssss!!!!!! I have to go see this movie!!!!!
I rather watch Beyonce read a 100 letters to the first lady before I even attempt to watch the crap.
LOL. I hate you! Lawd!!!! Poor Beyonce.
will go and see this too!!!! unfortunately nearly all movies basically have the same story line, horrors, actions, dance movies and so on,,, after all. horrors to jump ya, actions with fighting or something so and dance movies obviously with dance how really different can it really get… rate a movie for its quality and content. coz we can all admit all have bascially the same story line
so if it chris brwon ya hating on hate on him!! BUT don’t judge someone just because they sin differently than you
You want to know why the black community is consistently being robbed of it’s culture? It’s because we allow it., If you listen to “That’s My Bitch” off of the “Watch The Throne” album jay-z say’s “I mean Marilyn Monroe, she’s quite nice But why all the pretty icons always all-white? Put some colored girls in the MOMA Half these broads ain’t got nothing on Wilona, Don’t make me bring Thelma in it Bring Halle, Bring Penelope and Selma in it” Yet if you watch the “Otis” video there is not one black female in that video, him and kanye are riding around in a car full of skinny, white models. I feel the media glorifies all the negative aspects of the black culture,
yet covertly steals all the positive aspects of our culture and are delusional to the point that they think they do it better. There is nothing spectacular about Justin Beiber, however due to the fact that he is white the media hypes him up. Adele is talented dont get me wrong but there are many full figured black woman doing exactly what she does in a hole in the wall club every night but better.
YESSSS! Preach it!!!! Justin Beiber has to be the most untalented person in the music industry besides Taylor Swift. Adele is alright. Put her on stage with Jazmin Sullivan and she’s history. I have no words for the camel Jay Z. I just want them to put his ass back in the middle of the projects for one night! It doesn’t matter how much they steal from us they are still jealous. When my sister’s and I walk into any lounge in NYC white girls get furious. For one don’t think about dancing next to us because you will lose. Don’t think about out dressing us because you will lose. Nope no weaves here no ridiculous makeup, no ten dollar shoes or dresses. They stare and hate just like they did back in the days when our people were going to church on Sunday mornings. Lining the block like it was a parade just to see black men and women go to church sharp. So they can steal it but they will never be us. That’s what kills them the most.
Methinks this just may be seen on DVD before it gets seen in theaters. I can’t imagine why (besides $) they would have made this or the guys would be in this. smh
Kkk….what a name,smh
From reading these comments, I guess, it’s reasonable to say that white people can’t possibly grow up immersed in hip hop culture (emceeing, b-boying, etc) and love it just as much as anyone else of a darker complection. The white person can only be imitating and/or stealing opposed to a black person who grew up learning this culture from others as well.
Yes, there are those who want to capitalize on anything and everything that is popular, regardless of where it came from, and there are those who have out right stolen pieces of culture and music (The Beach Boys, Led Zeplin, et al) but there are also those who just love the art and want to express themselves through the very art they grew to love. Why hate that?
Black people are beautiful, black art is beautiful. And white people loving and respecting black culture is beautiful, also.
sure.. if it was just loving and respecting it they were doing… but in the future your kids might be talking about Eminem the creator of rap
Well said Jacob.
No, it’s not impossible for a caucasian to “grow up immersed in hip hop culture”. You have little choice, seeing as “hip hop culture” is pop culture now. Immersing yourself in “hip hop culture” allows you to feel “black”. Whites have always done this, which is what blackface and minstrelsy was all about. What history has shown a person with a SHARP MIND is that it is impossible for the caucasian to admire something without stealing it. Again, it is IMPOSSIBLE, and history has shown a SHARP-MINDED person that the caucasian has never shared anything: not land, not creations, not inventions, definitely not profit, and certainly not history. The caucasian has never “respected” a “culture” unless it could be stolen and profited from. As soon as one of you dev!ls come with your bleeding heart “I love you, please love me” nonsense, the simple-minded negroes fall for it lol (Proverbs 14:15).
EXACTLY…..and “Jacob” would be the one changing the history books and depicting Rakim as a d@mn white man lmao.
@Judah, so how do you feel about Rick Rubin and Malcolm McLaren? Do you think they stole from the Hip-Hop Culture?
Of course, Rick Rubin, Malcolm McLauren, James Murdoch etc are all thieves. Again, everything that you see being done is a bastardize version of our culture. They have stolen and disfranchised our communities but we still are the go to for just about anything and everything. The white folks are completely aware of this too…
Rick Rubin is not only a Satanist and admirer of Albert Pike he also leverages just about anything he can get his hands on to exploit in the media for capital gain. Jay-Z was discussing how Rubin was weird and cooky but he looked up and admired his genius? LOL, his GENIUS? Really? Rick Rubin is exploiting your community and using their arts and culture against them.
James Murdoch is the son of Rupert Murdoch and is a founder and investor of the quote on quote conscious rap label RAWKUS RECORDS that has produced rappers like Mos Def, Talib Kweli etc. Which always baffles me that Mos Def, Talib Kweli and others on that label fight anti-establishment but are being funded by the very machine they are against.
Malcolm McLauren he just stole anything and everything from blacks. Not just from Hip-Hop. But he even went into the subcultures of black and latino communities i.e. the LGBT community and brought “Voguing,” to the forefront. He and Madonna made a killing off of it – reviving their careers with something “chic.” from a bunch of poor black and latino kids in the hood.
The black + latino community is in shambles. It’s almost sad – how we crave acceptance from a group of people who could give two fucks about us. Which is why I can’t stomach to accept the shit they push for Martin Luther King – because its sub-servant and bullshit. I rather hear about Marcus Garvey.
I don’t know what “hip hop culture” is. That is why I put it in quotes. “Hip hop” is music, and music is a business. In order to capitalize on business, you must publicize it. When you have the power to publicize it, you can control it. Once it is controlled, then you can gear it however you want, to whoever you want, and still make MONEY. There is no altruism involved. Rick Rubin, Malcolm McLaren, and any and all of these other caucasians that you can name had something to gain from promoting that music, that being money, the same way as it was done with rock & roll, jazz, going all the way back to classical music (which BLACKS invented). That phrase “hip hop culture” is a mind control phrase, to make people believe that there is a certain way to dress, walk, talk, and THINK to be a “hip hopper”. It’s nonsense, and it makes black people believe that these other races like them because they imitate them. The Asians are infatuated with “hip hop dance” but they still do commercials and have tv shows in black-face on their national television. I wonder how they would react if black people en masse started doing strictly geisha performances, or like “Cheers” said, riverdanced on television. The other races would be perplexed because they would say to themselves, “Why are these n!ggers copying us? Don’t they have their own dances?”.
my comment is in moderation lol its pretty long too
@Judah thank you. Please Preach! Jacob is on the wrong site. All that holy than thou crap you are talking out the side of your ass, can it! We don’t believe you. You need more people. And even then we still won’t believe you.
btw… would wait to watch this on HBO while doing chores on a slow day
This is just stupid on so many levels. These dance movies are completely played out
$1 show, yeeep!!!
…and why is Laz Alonso Humpty Dumpty shaped, mediocre acting, whopped head ass in it?
I’m convinced that if I ever want to see a dance movie at the level of breakin or beat street I have to do it myself…… a version for this era of course……and Laz needs to step it up career wise. He’s had too many good roles to take on this cornball type of movie. I get it when it comes to wanting to keep that money flowing but this feels like a step back to me as far as he goes.
He’s just doing what his handlers tell him he has to do.
Movie doesn’t look interesting at all. Not what I was expecting. I was bored sitting through the trailer.
“I don’t know what “hip hop culture” is.” That’s all you had to say… there is no point in arguing with on this one, wow.
Also, blackface was not about trying to feel black. That is the most idiotic statement I have heard here, yet.
BTW, did black people steal basketball? Golf shirts in the 90′s? and did Wu-tang steal chinese culture when they used all of the kung-fu references? It’s sad that you don’t even know what hip hop culture is and probably claim ownership of it because you are black when in all actuality you just take it for granted.
You got me crackin’ up over here lmao. Yes, I do not know what “hip hop culture” is, because it is a contrived term, but white man, PLEASE tell me about “hip hop culture” lmao. Tell me my history, and what it means to be “black” lol. You sound like one of those cavemen that goes to college and signs up for an “African Hiistory” class to meet and b0ne silly black women lol. “Music” is not a culture caveman. You remind me of the character in “Malibu’s Most Wanted” lol. Some dev!l trying to “out-black” black people due to your infatuation with “hip hop culture”. That’s why you stated that I’m “taking hip-hop culture for granted” lmao. I don’t take anything for granted. As a black man, I am here as the Lord’s ambassador to be a judge. I was here first and will be here last. We are creators, not imitators, so a real black man does not put his spirit into “hip hop”. To make a long story short, you wish you were black. If I was not so-called “black”, I would wish I was black too, so I don’t blame you. You don’t even see what you did when you responded, which is prove me correct. Now your racism is coming out. Who mentioned basketball, much less alleged that it is a “culture”? YOU CAUCASIANS are the people that started the stigma of basketball being a “black sport”. Weak a$$ strawman argument. Black people did not invent golf shirts (that I know of), but black people did invent golf. Furthermore, you don’t know the history on s0-called “black-face”, so don’t try to instruct me. When your dev1l a$$ walks down the street in your Jordans with your hat turned backwards, boppin’ your no rhythm-havin’, goat-haired a$$ to “Jigga”, you are in black-face. “Black-face” (mimicry of blacks that developed into mockery of blacks) goes back to the Greco-Roman Empire and was rejuvenated in the late Middle Ages. In regards to your simple-minded statement pertaining to Wu-Tang, I anticipated that nonsense, which is why I said “STRICTLY geisha performances” in my initial response, not “hip-hop with influences from other cultures”. If 10 black dudes from America came out and performed an ancient Malaysian ceremonial dance, you would say in your head “What the f*ck is going on?”, so get out of here with your nonsense.
@ Jacob just stop while you are ahead! Please! Judah is killing you softly and slowly. Have your facts before you open your trap.
What an ugly pissant. Someone stop this losers career already.
Judah, ease on up. The basketball thing was a joke. Atheletics, games, the sports we play are part of culture just like art, music and dance.
Oh, I’m the racist, all the while trying to out black you?!? But, you’re right, I concede; I am just a white devil trying to steal everything from you.
BTW, that stereotype you laid out didn’t resemble me the least bit but it did make me laugh because I know those people, too, and some of them probably look just like you.
