Some men believe Hip hop is for children,

But I haven’t seen a child who is a gangster.

Hip hop is life; it’s food, lovelier than a wife,

The best motivator,

The language that illuminates the truth about life to humans,

The fighter for human equality, the killer of racism,

Hip hop thinks like a wise woman and acts like an old man.

I call her my drugs, my saviour, my inner sorcerer,

My companion, the language of the black gods.

Hip hop is Africa, it is black in colour,

The medium that Negros use to pass message(s) to the White Aliens,

Hip hop is so hard, harder than a man’s erection,

More explosive than come shot, so wired than bitches,

Hip hop was born by an African mother,

She puckers brows when things are done the wrong way.

Hip hop is revolutionary; it’s a secret fighter,

A culture, a cult and a deity,

Hip hop is a gospel, the comforter of the street.

It is a ritual that the gods speak along with an instrumental or synthesized beat,

Life without Hip hop is like living in a world without a motivator,

I die, when Hip hop dies.

-Emeka Ubesie

  1. When I were the one having to write this article, all these readers would
    be frustrated. It’s an excellent thing you are the
    writer and you bring fresh creative ideas to us all.
    This is attention-grabbing.


  2. When someone writes an post he/she maintains the plan of a user in his/her brain that how a user can understand it. Therefore that’s why this piece of writing is perfect. Thanks!|
