wow, the stunt man just sent this over to me and it got me thinking...
hmm, remember (hopefully you do!!!) when much music's mandate seemed to have education in the mix? here's a sample of the first episode of rap city (hosted by the incredible michael williams). peep the boss intro and red alert interview. damn, he's breaking it down! gotta say though, watching this clip makes me a little angry and sad—looking back to a time when canadian music television really broke it down for the young viewers instead of finding progressively disturbing ways of selling more and more manufactured pop product. i know we have other valuable resources for information today (if you can sort through the e-quagmire) and perhaps the youth of 2011 will wax poetic about what's happening right now just as i am, but rap city was the type of intelligent and soulful content/programming that literally changed lives... RIP
