It might also be due to the lustmorde nature at the founding core of Hip-Hop, RE the ‘too-many’ accounts of “weirdness” of hip-hop founders, KRS-ONE, AFRIKA BAMBAATAA, now apparently vanished.  Youtube search brings up the gory details https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=krs-one+pedophilia —- Professor Griff of “Public Enemy” infamy also delves into this in his infamous classic bookstore rant.  The spirit and intent behind the music matters.  Muchly.  And, people pick up on that, eventually if not immediately.


That is Hip-hop at the top, in red, that has halved.

  1. From the comments — “Grass root does not move so quickly on its own — mainly, the trends up tend to hold, after taking some time to take hold. These single-year radical changes strongly indicate manipulation. And since Dave McGowan showed the military intelligence direct involvement with all major musical acts, is there any wonder cultural manipulation is afoot? Words are strong. Music is stronger. Be wary what you let into your body, be that through your mouth, eyes, ears or otherwise (microwaves).”

  2. Early Lennon Honor youtubes dug into the very extreme profanity in hip-hop and rap songs. Pastor of Ex-Ministries, G. Craige Lewis, also dug into the Satanica and other high (and low) weirdness encoded into rap and rock songs. Words carry meaning and impact. Music much moreso. Be careful what you let into your mind, body and spirit. Good vibrations reveals importance too often overlooked.
