As if the world didn’t think hip hop fans were fucking retarded enough..
Now we all know hip hop died a long time ago, so the National yet-to-be-built Museum of Hip Hop has launched a fundraiser campaign titled “Donate-A-Dollah” to help construct it’s final resting place. Yes, they are trying to raise awareness for a “hip hop museum” (apparently they haven’t been to Chris Faraone’s bedroom), a monument to an artform that so gloriously fell when the behemoth of ringtone rap proved that the new generation of fans are basically legally retarded when it comes to taste.
Cool I guess.. but I mean ..Donate – A – Dollah?
“If we are ever going to create positive change within our inner-city communities, we must stop depending on out-of-area government officials and corrupt politicians; true changes begins and ends with the PEOPLE. But before the people (hip-hop culture) can exact change, they must first be unified; this, unification, is the underlying focus of the DAD Campaign,” said Craig Wilson, creator of DAD & President of NMoH. “Hip-Hop is a world renowned culture and is long overdue for an institution to recognize and educate the public on the positive contributions of the four original elements of its culture.”
Now I understand most of our readers can’t understand what NMoH.org “el presidente” Craig Wilson is saying, so let me translate his thoughts into hip hop:
“Yo, what we been practicin’ haz been dat knowledge a self 4 like mad long now.. but what had really happened wuz like we ain’t really been givin’ shit to da hip hop side ov thangs. We bout 2 change da game and flip da script on ya’ll, farealdoe. We reppin da 4 elementz to the most high, my 3rd eye open and allladat.. so what we need iz a lil’ luv from da community to make it pop off. nah mean?”.
Included in the press release was also a link to purchase a laser disc of Lovebug Starski’s greatest meltdowns.
If you’re not all SMH by now.. (that means shake my head for the whites reading this), please understand.. I love hip hop more than anyone (obviously), so I’m all for this campaign – especially since that pompous, know-it-all, $50,000 fee per lecture-ass KRS-One is against it.
And DONATE A DOLLAH? I can only assume that the museum wants us to donate a photograph of revered Singapore soccer star Dollah Kassim. I mean, DONATE-A-DOLLAH ??? Unless.. well.. they can’t be suggesting that proper fucking English isn’t hip hop.. can they?
So here you go..
