Chicago vs. Drake

Uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday by the Windy City Bboys.

Why diss Drake?

The answer is simple, I agree with Common and his standpoints on 'Sweetness' a plague that has infected the Hip Hop community in ALL elements (Emceeing, Bboying, Graffiti Art and Djing) . . . so it's not just Drake

I don't hate Drake he just happens to be on top using the word "Hip-Hop" to captivate a following and presenting this culture in a tasteless way. I don't know about you guys and when I say you guys I mean the Hip Hop headz that have struggled for years to keep the true essence of this art form alive . . . but I find it disrespectful and demeaning when someone comes onto the scene and takes shortcuts to get a "name" without paying dues and most importantly not grasping what this culture means.

To the average person . . . I'll put it to you likes this:

Let's say you've worked at your job for 10 years, you've worked hard to get where you're at, you've become an expert at what you do . . . now a new hire comes in and they start that person at the same wage as you.

I worked in the corporate world for a decade for a reputable telecommunications company and I know it happens there too . . . and what have all of you done when this has happened?

Point is, dig a little deeper and you'll find that this Culture has much more to offer when you truly embrace it.
