Was Hip hop culture a rebellion to the attempted emasculation of the black man?

Or just a rebellion to overall conformity?

    do you understand what im getting at?? WHAT WHITE PPL THINK, AND WHAT THEY DEFINE THINGS AS IS NOT THE STANDARD YOU SHOULD BE GOING BY. That is of course, if you are not mentally defeated by the complex of white supremacy, where everything whites do is the "right" way, where having straight hair and lightskin is "beautiful" but dark skin and nappy hair is "ugly"
    You're doing it wrong. You take one and really fuck them up; make an example to the other kids. Like grab the small bitch and gouge her eyes out with your thumbs. Then curb stomp her.

    Wasn't but now it is. I already knew but I actually was talking HipHop with a white dude the other day and he took the words right out of my mouth. I was mind blown.

    Hip hop was the voice of black culture in the ghetto. So was rock. So was country. So was jazz. Until white people stole those genres. But hip hop was special because it primarily spoke to the youth. Dominated by the youth. Rappers regularly began their career in high school.....

    I lost my train of thought watching Tyson vs Holyfield 30 for 30

    Just for the record Rock/Country/Jazz was never stolen from black people. Some black people were tricked into thinking it didn't belong to them. But there are still the Buddy Guys, Darius Ruckers and Gary Clark Jrs who still perform the blues/country/rock because they never fell victim to that mindset.

    Maybe it's just a bunch of folks expressing themselves artistically.

    I don't think it was all that, just a voice for a sub-culture that had something to say...

    The more exposure it got, the more people adapted to and favored it over their previous likes.

    As time went on capitalist and tyrants alike re appropriated it for their own needs and desires.

    Now being "masculine" is directly correlated with the bastardization of our people and culture.
